Eagles tender two more


The Eagles have tendered two more restricted free agents in advance of the 3 p.m. deadline.

Running back Jerome Harrison  was tendered at a 2nd-round level and punter Sav Rocca was tendered under no compensation, but the tender gives the Eagles the right of first refusal, the team announced.

Harrison was originally a fifth-round pick out of Washington State and was acquired by the Eagles in a trade with Cleveland for Mike Bell.

Rocca was undrated and joined the NFL after his career playing Australian rules football. He was tendered at the same level last year.

The moves bring the total of potential restricted free agents -- at least under the old system -- tendered to six.

Yesterday, they tendered linebacker Stew Bradley at second-round compensation, guard Max Jean-Gilles at fourth round (his draft round) and cornerback Dimitri Patterson under the right of first refusal (Patterson was undrafted). Exclusive rights free agent Eldra Buckley also was tendered.

Under the current system, if another club signs a player to an offer sheet, the Eagles have seven days to match the offer. If they choose not to match, the Eagles will receive a pick in the round that the player was tendered.

With the six tenders offered, that means the untendered were linebackers Ernie Sims, Omar Gaither and Akeem Jordan; offensive linemen Nick Cole and Reggie Wells; and defensive backs Antoine Harris and Ellis Hobbs, who is said to be mulling retirement.

Of course, it is possible some of this won't matter depending on the new terms of the CBA.
