Falcons give Worrilow and Schraeder second-round tenders, $2.5 million; Allen gets exclusive rights tender

AUBURN, Ala. -- The Falcons have extended second-round tenders to restricted free agent linebacker Paul Worrilow and right tackle Ryan Schraeder on Monday.

Worrilow has been the team's leading tackler over the past three seasons. Schraeder solidified the right tackle spot last season.

The tender is worth $2.553 million for the 2016 season.  The Falcons would garner a second-round pick if Worrilow or Schraeder receive an offer sheet from another team and they elect to pass on matching it.

Worrilow, 26, made the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware in 2013.

Schraeder, 27, made the Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Valdosta State in 2013.

Schraeder has started 30 of 42 games.

In another expected move, the team also tendered free safety Ricardo Allen as an exclusive rights free agent.
