Jackson & Havner Received Tender Offers

Jackson & Havner Received Tender Offers

From Gregg Rosenthal over at ProFootballTalk:

A league source informs PFT that Packers running back Brandon Jackson was also given a RFA tag, despite a report to the contrary.  (Yes, it was the same report as Jones.)   Jackson’s tender was at the third-round level of compensation.

Also, last evening word came from Bill Huber at Packer Report:

Exclusive rights free agent Spencer Havner was tendered by Packers, agent Justin Schulman told me a few mins ago.

The most annoying part of all this? There is very little chance of any of this meaning anything once a new CBA is put in place.

Disagree that extending tenders has no meaning.

1. It shows the players that the team is interested. Indifference is sign of disrespect and can hinder future negotiations needlessly.

2. We assume that CBA will be exactly the same as previous regarding years of service for UFA. However, this is not a given and it is prudent for the Packers to show due diligence. How stupid would they look of years of service were different in new CBA? Very wise move by the Packers.

You did read the words "very little chance", right? Of course the moves have meaning. There's just a very strong chance this will all be for nothing. That's all.

I agree that the tenders will not likely be used, but James' first point alone gives the moves a positive meaning for their potential impact in future negotiations.

Why don't they just hire a public relations person already. A Sophmore Communicants Major could do an better job relaying info to the fans who pay their salaries.
