The tendered RFA RB Chris Thompson and ILB Will Compton as expected. Today was the deadline, and now both players will be able to get offers from other teams, but the Redskins will have seven days to match. The Redskins did not announce which level of tender was applied. Both players saw significant playing time over the last two seasons, and depending how the rest of the offseason plays out, could be in line for significant roles this year.
Well that's nice to know... https://t.co/EHKtumuGUe— Chris Thompson (@ChrisThompson_4) March 8, 2017
I'm sorry y'all I had a moment. Just wish I could've been the one to break news to you guys. Miscommunication on my part.— Chris Thompson (@ChrisThompson_4) March 8, 2017
