The Seattle Seahawks tendered offers to three restricted free agents on Tuesday.

Defensive tackle Clinton McDonald, safety Chris Maragos and long snapper Clint Gresham were all tendered offers prior to free agency beginning Tuesday afternoon. According to the team’s official site, Maragos and Gresham were tendered with a right of first refusal while McDonald was given an original round tender.

If another team were to sign McDonald to an offer sheet, Seattle would have the right to match any offer. If they decided not to match, they would receive a seventh round pick in compensation. For Maragos and Gresham, the Seahawks can match any offer but would not receive any compensation in return if they choose not to match.
