I read today that the tender would be only for the 2021 season

Correct me if I am wrong. The Broncos can put a second round tender on him and if no other team claims him the Broncos will owe him $3M in 2021. In 2022 he will then be an unrestricted free agent.

Of course, if they want to lock him into a longer deal, then they will have to pay him more than $3M ... sounds like he would receive somewhere between $5M and $8M a year.

If another team does claim him, they of course would give him more than the one year.

Interesting comment in the article.

"While there is plenty of truth to that view, when a running back outperforms his rookie contract, the view that those backs should just play under that cheap contract sends a message that they are expendable. That's not a good message to send to players, because they get the impression that their services aren't valued."
