Chris Gocong to be tendered at 3rd round level

New, comments

It has been odd that little to no news has leaked about the Eagles plans for their 10 restricted free agents. We learned a week ago from Drew Rosenhaus that the team wouldn't tender TE Alex Smith but they would tender Max Jean-Gilles. Gilles will reportedly tendered at the 4th round level(his original draft spot). We also know they're working on a contract extension with Leonard Weaver. The latest bit of news is that Chris Gocong, who struggled with injuries and simply not playing well last year will be tendered.

Gocong is expected to receive either the low tender or original draft tender by Thursday’s deadline. Both would pay him a $ 1.176 million salary for 2010 and give the Eagles the right to match any offer from other teams. The original draft tender would also give the Eagles a third-round pick.
