The Browns have given tight end Evan Moore a 2nd round tender that would push his salary up from $395,000 to $1.9 million.
The Browns haven’t announced which of their pending restricted free agents they will try to keep off the market, but an NFL source said that one of them is tight end Evan Moore.
Moore was given the second-round tender, according to the source. It is an indication of Moore’s rising status in the West Coast offense under new coach Pat Shurmur. The second-round tender means a team would have to give up a second-round draft pick to sign Moore. It is worth about $1.9 million to Moore, who made the NFL minimum of $395,000 last year.
Moore technically is a restricted free agent, even though he has spent only two seasons on an active NFL roster and one year on an injured reserve list, said the source.
Moore led the Browns with a 20.1 yards per catch average last season, with 16 catches for 322 yards and one touchdown. He suffered a concussion in Game 2 against Kansas City and missed the last three games with a hip injury.
