Morrison Will Sign Tender

According to a source, Kirk Morrison will sign his restricted free agent tender.

This keeps him in Silver & Black unless the Raiders decide to trade him.

The tender will earn him about $2.5 million in 2010.

Morrison failed to generate enough interest for a team to give up a third round draft pick as a restricted free agent.

The deadline was looming for Morrison to sign with another team and he opted to sign the tender over holding out until June 1.

The source tells me Morrison isn’t likely to show up for voluntary team workouts.

Signing the tender allows the Raiders to retain him or trade him.

In the end, Morrison and his agent knew holding out wouldn’t allow the Raiders to explore trading him at the draft.

It isn’t known if the Raiders will explore a trade, but it is likely, as there would have been no other reason to place the low third-round tender on Morrison.

Expect the Raiders to dangle Morrison for as low as a fourth round pick.
