Second-round tender: One-year contract worth the greater of (a) $3.259 million or (b) 110 percent of the player's prior-year base salary. Draft-choice compensation: second-round pick.



The Indianapolis Colts will place a second-round restricted free agent tender on tight end Mo Alie-Cox, according to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network.

The Colts had until 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday to determine whether they would place a tender on Alie-Cox. The second-round tender carries a contract value of $3.384 million for the 2021 season, though it is non-guaranteed.


Alie-Cox, a former college basketball player at Virginia Commonwealth, began to get settled in his football role last season with the Colts. He played in 15 games with six starts, catching 31 passes for 394 yards and two touchdowns.


Alie-Cox can still negotiate contracts with other teams and sign an offer sheet. The Colts would have the right to match any offer signed by Alie-Cox and would get a second-round pick as compensation should they decline to match the agreement.
Makes it tough for Mo to move. However, the 3.26 million aint bad. I wish at least some of it was guaranteed. Hopefully MO negotiates a contract with guaranteed money. This year its all about the dollars and salary cap.

Good for Mo he was transitioned beautifully.

I was hoping someone could more translate this whole deal nice and clear, but I guessing it shows he's appreciating, he's likely to at least have a contract, and it'll be much bigger than last year, right?

It is more money for Mo but it is not a guaranteed contract. Hopefully he will have a good year and capitalize with a multi-year guaranteed contract in Indy or somewhere else.

Basically it's like being franchise tagged while being a FA at same time. Though a Franchise tag you'd be making an average of whatever your position is in the NFL. https://overthecap.com/franchise-transition-and-rfa-tenders/

The catch is... when you are Franchise Tagged... you are stuck with the team that tagged you, UNLESS they trade you. You can't contact other teams to try & strike a deal without your teams permission.

With the Tender... the Colts still currently hold the rights to him... but Mo & his agent have more freedom in that they can contact other teams, or other teams can contact them & try to strike a deal. And then the Colts either have to match that offer or let Mo walk. And then if the Colts decide not to match the other teams offer, they get a compensation pick based on the tender they placed on him. So since it's a 2nd round tender... if someone else makes him a better offer & Colts decide not to match... they get a 2nd round pick as compensation.

"If Alie-Cox doesn't like any of those offers, or just wants to play the season out and enter unrestricted free agency, he will make $3.384 million next year.

"A vast majority of restricted free agents end up going that route. It means that Alie-Cox will make in the upcoming season slightly less than double what he's made his entire career to this point."

Wow.

Good to see Bri lighting it up. I thought for sure he would be able to latch on to an NBA team due to his defensive skills. The NBA is such an exclusive club with only so many spots- lots of good ball players out there

I'm not the biggest font of basketball knowledge, but I've always assumed that while Weber is one of the best defensive specialists out there, that he's never been a good enough shooter to stick in the NBA. The NBA doesn't care all that much about defense.

The NBA cares a lot about defense, the rules are different to favor the offense and the players are just that good.....go figure, they are already the best in the world and they can perfect their craft against the best. Where defense is of import to the NBA is that it is all about match-ups—because of the differences in the game, spacing is critical and even one leaky bucket on defense will open up a deluge of problems. To your point a player’s defensive weaknesses can be offset by their offensive prowess, Jamal Crawford & Lou Williams would be great examples.

Bri’s defensive ratings were not that good in the NBA in large part because the opposing offense could put him in situations where he just couldn’t match up size wise, not a knock on him just a reality, there are a lot of 6’6” to 6’8” guys who can handle the rock and get good shots so hard for a guy Bri’s size to be as effective defensively. Without a standout offensive skill set, really hard for him to stick.

Nonetheless, he was in the league for awhile, which speaks volumes as to how good he is....it’s the most competitive sports league in the world talent wise. You make it there, even if for short stints, you can make it anywhere else.
