Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010 at 10:54 am in Oakland Raiders.
Guard/center Chris Morris received an original-round tender from the Raiders Wednesday, his agent said.
Morris, with four accrued seasons, would receive a salary of $1,176,000 should he sign the tender. He is free to field offers from other teams, with the Raiders having the right of first refusal. If Oakland declined to match an offer, they would receive a seventh-round draft pick _ the round Morris was selected in 2006.
(Correction: Morris has three accrued seasons _ he played in only five games as a rookie _ and his salary would be $1,101,000).
No word as yet on Oakland’s other restricted free agents, including linebackers Kirk Morrison and Thomas Howard.
