Broncos TE Tony Scheffler Signs RFA Tender

Denver Broncos restricted free agent tight end Tony Scheffler has signed his one-year tender, Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports.

A second-round pick (61st overall) out of Central Michigan in 2006, Scheffler has caught 138 passes for 1,896 yards and 14 touchdowns over the last four seasons. Scheffler was tendered at the second-round level, which carries a $1.759 million dollar base salary in 2010.

Like Brandon Marshall, Scheffler was benched by head coach Josh McDaniels for the team's "must-win" regular season finale against the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009, which the Broncos lost, 44-24. Signing the tender paves the way for the Broncos to now trade the 6-5, 255-pound tight end, who could likely be had for a third-round pick.
