Siavii, who served as Jay Ratliff's back-up at nose tackle last season, received the original draft-pick level tender--like the one given DE Marcus Spears--worth $1.226 million.
One of Spears's back-ups, Jason Hatcher will actually earn more than Spears in 2010. Hatcher was tendered at the second round level (along with fellow back-up Stephen Bowen), and, after signing yesterday, is due $1.759 million in 2010. Hatcher ended the 2009 season with 27 tackles and 13 quarterback pressures.
The Pago Pago native Siavii finished with 11 tackles last season, and figures to return to a highly-limited back-up role behind the All-Pro Ratliff.
