Broncos place ERFA tenders on LB Jonas Griffith and two other players

The Denver Broncos are bringing back three of their players who were eligible for one-year exclusive rights free agent tenders this spring.

The Broncos have placed one-year, ERFA tenders on inside linebacker Jonas Griffith, punter Corliss Waitman and offensive lineman Quinn Bailey, according to KUSA-TV’s Mike Klis.

In the NFL, ERFAs are players with fewer than three accrued seasons and an expiring contract. They are eligible for one-year, league-minimum contracts.

For Griffith and Waitman, who have two years of experience, the tender will be worth $940,000 this season. Bailey, who has just one accrued season, will earn $870,000 this year.

Denver declined to pick up the ERFA tender of pass rusher Jonathan Kongbo, according to Klis. Kongbo will now become an unrestricted free agent.

The Broncos’ three players who did have their tenders exercised — Griffith, Waitman and Bailey — will not be allowed to negotiate with other teams.
