The Seattle Seahawks have given a second-round tender to restricted free agent tight end Jacob Hollister, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the team has not announced the designation. NFL Network first reported the designation.
Hollister is coming off the best season of his young career, and will earn $3.259 million for the upcoming season if he stays with Seattle. Hollister can still negotiate with other teams, but the Seahawks would receive a second-round pick if they choose not to match.
Hollister entered last season with eight career receptions, but due to injuries took on a big role in Seattle’s offense. Hollister had 41 catches for 349 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. He’s expected to continue having a role as a pass catcher for Seattle even with the signing of Greg Olson and the expected return of Will Dissly from injury.
The Seahawks have reportedly given an original-round tender to receiver David Moore. That means if another team signs Moore, Seattle would receive a 7th round pick, if the Hawks declined to match the offer. The tender means Moore would make $2.13 million in 2020, unless they come up with a multi-year contract.
