~ With the deadline to tender restricted free agents looming, the Cleveland Browns are continuing their efforts to secure quarterback Derek Anderson with a contact extension.
The Browns’ latest offer is a three-year deal worth $20 million, with $10 million guaranteed, according to the Columbus Dispatch. There are indications that an agreement could be struck Wednesday or early Thursday, according to reports in both the Dispatch and the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Anderson is scheduled to become a restricted free agent on Friday, and he can either accept the Browns’ offer, or take a one-year tender worth $2.52 million. With the tender, the Browns would be able to match any other team’s offer to Anderson, or receive first- and third-round draft picks if he ends up with another team.
