The Falcons elected to use a second-round tender on Schraeder that will cost them $2.553 million for the 2016 season. Had someone signed Schraeder to an offer sheet, the Falcons could have picked up a second-round pick if they elected to pass on matching the offer.
Schraeder, 27, signed on with the Falcons as undrafted free agent out of Valdosta State back in 2013. He played out his three-year, $1,487,000 rookie contract with the team before Atlanta used a second-round tender on him.
He’ll be an unrestricted free agent next March.
In 2015, Schraeder appeared in all 16 games for the Falcons and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 5 offensive tackle out of 77 qualifying players.
