- Adam Schefter reports that Gilliam’s offer sheet with the 49ers is a one-year, $2.2 million deal.
A previous report mentioned that Gilliam turned down an offer sheet from the 49ers. However, it appears as though San Francisco improved their offer.
Seattle used an original-round tender on him that would cost them around $1.797 million for the 2017 season, which gives them the right of first refusal for any offer sheet he signs with another team during free agency.
However, because Gilliam was an undrafted free agent, the Seahawks would not receive any compensation for him if they decline to match the offer.
Gilliam, 26, wound up signing on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State back in 2014. He managed to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season has been on their active roster ever since.
In 2016, Gilliam appeared in 14 games for the Seahawks and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 71 offensive tackle out of 78 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding Gilliam’s offer sheet as the news is available.
