Steelers put $1.9 million restricted tender on Anthony Chickillo

The Steelers have given Antony Chickillo the lowest tender for a restricted free agent, thus keeping their right to match any offer he may receive elsewhere.

The backup outside linebacker received a $1.907 million one-year contract tender. Chickillo can pursue other offers and if he signs with another team, the Steelers would have the choice either to match that contract or let him go and receive a sixth-round draft choice this year in return.

Chickillo started two games and played in all 16 last season. He had three sacks and 14 tackles. Since drafting him in the sixth round from Miami in 2015, he has started nine games.
