The Pittsburgh Steelers are set to face a mass exodus of players this offseason due to free agency, as well as several veteran players being salary cap casualties. They also must decide what, if any, tenders they place on their restricted free agents.
Emmanuel Sanders is an easy decision. They will give him the lower offer because he would bring third-round compensation as a draft pick in that round. No one signed Mike Wallace last year for similar compensation as an RFA.
Since Redman was not drafted, there would be no compensation required for the lower tender, which would only give the Steelers the right of first refusal if a team signed him. Dwyer was a sixth-round pick, so the Steelers would receive a sixth-round choice for him in return at the lower tender amount.
