All of these players are worth a 2nd round tender, however the business side of things tells you that if you’re planning on matching the offer sheets that they might get, you keep it as low as possible. You would like to see them be able to cover the bases should a large offer come from another team but as we know that isn’t always possible.

Steelers leave Offensive Line very vulnerable with RFA Tenders

The Steelers have not released the terms of the RFA Tenders yet but indications point to the Steelers giving everyone but Wallace the lowest tender.  That means they would get a pick from the original draft round that the player was chosen in.  The Steelers were cap strapped and did not have much money to give out so they went with what they thought they could afford. That leaves...
