The Raiders placed a second-round tender on restricted free agent Desmond Bryant. That means that the Raiders are entitled to a second-round draft pick as compensation if Bryant is offered a contract by another team and the Raiders refuse to match the offer.
In other news, the Raiders declined to make a qualifying offer to safety Jerome Boyd. Therefore, Boyd is free to sign with any team, with the Raiders not entitled to any compensation if he signs elsewhere.
