Thread: Steelers | P Daniel Sepulveda offered low tender

    In Today's PG, Bouchette changes his story:

    Steelers: Colon receives tender
    If OT leaves, team gets 1st-round pick
    Wednesday, March 03, 2010
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    The Steelers tendered starting tackle Willie Colon a one-year contract offer of $2,521,000 Tuesday, the Post-Gazette has learned.

    That tender maintains the Steelers' rights to Colon as a restricted free agent. The level of compensation tendered him means that if another team, starting Friday, signs Colon to a contract, the Steelers would receive a first-round 2010 draft choice in return if they decline to match.

    NFL teams have five levels of tenders they can choose to offer their free agents for each of three draft class years, from 2005 through '07. The highest tender would bring a team draft picks in the first and third rounds if they decline to match. Colon received the second-highest tender available to his 2006 draft class.

    The Steelers also gave punter Daniel Sepulveda a tender that would bring them a fourth-round draft pick if he signs elsewhere and they do not match. Under those conditions if Sepulveda signs with another team and the Steelers decline to match, they receive nothing in return.

    The team did not reveal the tenders they issued their potential restricted free agents or those they might have ignored. One source said Colon was the only player who would receive a high tender and any others they issued were merely to maintain their rights to match another contract they might sign.

    Other potential restricted free agents include starting cornerback William Gay, backup tight end Matt Spaeth, fullback Carey Dav

    Harris and the Trib are sticking to the version that says no compensation. Nothing official on Steelers.com.

    From Ed's article...
    "The Steelers also gave punter Daniel Sepulveda a tender that would bring them a fourth-round draft pick if he signs elsewhere and they do not match. Under those conditions if Sepulveda signs with another team and the Steelers decline to match, they receive nothing in return."

    No wonder no one buys newspapers anymore. It is hard to contradict yourself in the same paragraph.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I read it about 5 times to see if I was missing anything, or it could be understood some other way. Nice job.

    as someone said


    if the cost of getting compensation is the same as not getting compensation...why wouldn't they offer that to him

    unless, they dont want to pay a punter $1M per year

    As expected, the Steelers issued tenders to cornerback William Gay and tight end Matt Spaeth, who join tackle Willie Colon and punter Daniel Sepulveda as restricted free agents when the official opening of free agency begins at the stroke of midnight Thursday.

    Gay and Spaeth each received tenders of slightly more than $1 million, as did Sepulveda. Like Sepulveda, each would provide the Steelers with a draft choice if they sign elsewhere and the Steelers did not exercise their right to match the contract.

    Gay would bring a fifth-round pick and Spaeth a third-round pick. Sepulveda would bring a fourth-round pick and Colon a first-round pick.

    The Steelers did not issue tenders to guard Darnell Stapleton or halfback Carey Davis and thus both will become unrestricted free agents on Friday.
