Redskins Tender Restricted Free Agent DT Chris Baker, Will Let WR Brandon Banks Walk
The Redskins have tendered backup nose tackle Chris Baker the restricted free-agent right-of-first-refusal qualifying offer, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The team has decided not to attempt to retain fellow restricted free agent receiver Brandon Banks.
By tendering Baker with the qualifying offer, which is worth $1.3 million, the Redskins protect their rights to him. He can negotiate with other teams in a seven-day window, but the Redskins can match the offer. If they choose not to match it, they will receive compensation in the form of a low-round draft pick. Because Baker wasn’t drafted, Washington wouldn’t be compensated if the team chose not to match whatever offer Baker received from another team.
