The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made an offer to George Johnson that he signed last night. The financial numbers were not yet disclosed but the offer is for a 3 year deal. The Detroit Lions offered Johnson an original round tender as opposed to a second round tender when they made their restricted free agent offers this offseason. The move, saving them over 800,000, was likely made to save them space to re-sign Ndamukong Suh in the offseason. When Suh left for Miami, the offer to Johnson started to concern fans. An original round tender means that if Detroit, who has 5 days to match Tampa Bay’s offer, chooses not to match the deal, they receive no compensation for losing him. With the Lions only having 4 million in cap space currently, the odds of the Lions matching the offer really depend on what Tampa offered him financially and how the contract was structured.
