Steelers Tender One-Year Contracts to Four Players

Washington

With free agency basically here, the Steelers earlier today made one-year contract offers to four restricted free agents. The team made offers to wide receiver Nate Washington and guard Chris Kemoeatu, reportedly for more than $1.4 million each, and offers to long snapper Greg Warren and offensive tackle Trai Essex, reportedly for just over $900,000 each.

Essex is entering his fourth NFL season. The third-round draft pick in 2005 played in three games in 2007. Kemoeatu is also entering his fourth season. He was a sixth-round pick in the 2005 draft and played in 15 games last season.

Warren has handled all the long-snapping duties for the Steelers since he was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2005. He has played in 48 regular-season games in his three seasons. Washington ranked fourth on the team with 29 catches for 450 yards and five touchdowns last season.
