Te’o-Nesheim Gets A ContractMarch 9th, 2013
The Bucs defensive end desperately in need of a nickname, Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, has been offered a restricted free agent tender offer by the Bucs.
It’s the lowest possible tender that will score him $1.3 million in 2013, per BSPN, and it’s unlikely another club will come calling.
If another team signed Te’o-Nesheim away, it would have to give the Bucs a third-round draft pick, and that’s not likely to happen.
Te’o-Nesheim was a rockstar general manager Mark Dominik plucking from the Eagles practice squad midway through the heinous 2011 season.
He’s no superstar, but the guy did start 14 games for Adrian Clayborn on the best run-stuffing line in the NFL, notched four sacks, and stayed healthy. Te’o-Nesheim is a young, effort player, and the Bucs rewarded his work.
