Seahawks give second-round tender to WR Doug Baldwin

Via Twitter, Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin, a restricted free agent, has confirmed that the team today tagged him with a second-round tender.

This is the same move the team made a few days ago with Jeron Johnson, so the same basic rules apply — if Baldwin signs the tender he gets $2.187 million. If Baldwin were to sign with another team, Seattle would be compensated with a second-round pick.

This protects Seattle if Baldwin does get other offers and also sets something of an initial  negotiating bar between Baldwin and the Seahawks.

However, as Baldwin wrote in his Tweet above, he is looking for a longer-term deal. So, as he wrote, there is likely more to come on this. At the least, Baldwin either plays out the season in Seattle and then becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2015. More likely, as he hinted, he signs a longer-term deal sometime soon.

After the news broke, Baldwin added these thoughts via Twitter:
