Ravens extend restricted tenders to Ellerbe and Gooden

Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times reports that the Ravens have extended restricted free agent tenders to linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Tavares Gooden.

Ellerbe and Gooden are three-year players, so they would’ve received restricted tenders regardless of the labor uncertainty.

Wilson reports that Ellerbe received a “low” tender, and Gooden an “original pick” tender. Because Ellerbe was originally undrafted, the Ravens would not receive compensation if another team signed him to an offer sheet, and Baltimore failed to match.

Gooden is highly unlikely to receive interest in restricted free agency at the original pick tender. He was originally a third-round pick, and no team would be willing to give up such a selection for the injury-prone linebacker.

Each player’s tender will be worth just over $1 million.
