There are multiple reports this afternoon that the Seahawks have placed a second-round tender on restricted free agent safety Jeron Johnson: The Seahawks showed how much they value safety Jeron Johnson by placing a second-round tender on the restricted free agent Tuesday. According to Mike Garafolo of FOXSports.com, Seattle has placed a second-round tender on safety Jeron Johnson. The second-round tender placed on Johnson reflects Seattle’s belief other teams will be seriously interested in his services this offseason. It also means Johnson will get $2.187 million if he remains with the Seahawks, and that Seattle would be compensated with a second-round pick if he is signed by another team . Seattle has the right of first refusal if another team makes Johnson an offer, giving the Seahawks a five-day window to match the offer. But Seattle obviously thinks highly of the potential of the 5-10, 212-pounder out of Boise State who will be entering his fourth season in the NFL in 2014.
