As expected, the Tennessee Titans tendered seven restricted free agents to contracts on Wednesday.
Harris and Ford received second-round tenders from the Titans worth around $2 million each. Harris was originally a fourth-round pick, while Ford was a sixth-rounder. Tulloch, originally a fourth-round pick, is believed to have received a first-round tender for the second straight season.
The Titans opted not to tender linebacker Colin Allred, who spent most of the year on injured reserve with a neck injury.
Whether or not those restricted free agent tags will end up applying to all of the players depends upon what sort of labor agreement is reached.
By the old collective bargaining agreement rules, Tulloch, Hall, Harris and Ford would all be unrestricted free agents because they have at least four credited seasons in the NFL. However, if the rules of the uncapped year of 2010 remain in play, the Titans would retain their rights.
Bailey, Shaw and Otto have all completed three seasons in the NFL and would be restricted free agents under either set of rules.
