Restricted free-agent tenders are mostly just transactional each year. The main question becomes whether the team uses an original round tender or a second or perhaps even a first-round tender.
For kicker Daniel Carlson, an original round tender would have meant a fifth-round compensation should another team signed him away. The Raiders took no chances. They opted to use a second-round tender on Carlson to scare off any prospective teams looking to snatch him away.
The tender is worth about $3.4 million for this season, which is $1.2 million more than an original round tender would have been.
After a rough 2019 season, Carlson bounced back to this 2018 form, connecting on 33 of 35 field-goal attempts (94.3%). His 144 points set a new franchise record for points scored in a season.
Among his 33 made field goals, he connected on all four of his attempts of 50 yards or more, which was a career-high.
