The Patriots announced tonight that they extended tenders to three players: restricted free agents BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Jarrad Page, and exclusive-rights free agent Kyle Arrington.

News of the tenders for Arrington and Green-Ellis came out over the last couple of days, but whether Page had been tendered was unknown before the team's announcement.

According to league sources, both Green-Ellis and Page were tendered at the second-round level; that means that should another team want to sign either player to an offer sheet (and New England decline to match it), it would have to surrender a second-round draft pick.

Of course, as of right now, it is unclear whether these tenders will still be valid if/when the current CBA expires.

O-lineman Quinn Ojinnaka was eligible to receive a tender, but he has not, so he becomes a free agent.
