Tony Carter tendered as restricted free agent

Broncos cornerback Tony Carter will not hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent when the period opens on Tuesday, as Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced on Monday that they tendered his rights as a restricted free agent on Monday.

As a restricted free agent, Carter can still receive offers from other teams but the Broncos have the right to match any offer, and they would receive compensation if he were signed by another team.

Carter played in eight games this past season, making five tackles, knocking down one pass and recovering one fumble and returning it for a touchdown.

The seventh-year player out of Florida State has accrued 49 total tackles, 20 passes defensed, three interceptions, one interception returned for a touchdown, three fumble recoveries and two fumbles returned for touchdowns in 42 games.
