According to Mike Klis of 9News, the Denver Broncos have placed a second-round tender on center Matt Paradis. The tender will pay him $2.914 million in 2018.
Broncos did extend 2nd round tender to RFA center Matt Paradis per source. #9sports— Mike Klis (@MikeKlis) March 12, 2018
Paradis is a fifth-year player out of Boise State and is a player the Broncos should target for a long-term extension during the season this year. Paradis has played every single offensive snap over the last three seasons and played them at a very high level.
Other teams can make an offer for Paradis, which Denver could then match. If they don’t match the offer, then the Broncos would receive a second-round pick as compensation for the loss of the restricted free agent.
More than likely, the Broncos would match any competing offer. But who knows, with the quarterback market going crazy a lot could happen in the next week.
