The Falcons have put a second-round tender on Jason Snelling, their versatile backup running back.
Snelling, who was a seventh round pick (244th overall) in 2007, rushed for 334 yards and caught 44 passes for 303 yards last season.
In 2009, he had to carry much of the load after Michael Turner was injured.
Under the tender, Snelling would receive a base salary of $1.91 million. If a new collective bargaining agreement is signed, the amount could increase. Snelling, who has four accrued years, could possibly end up as an unrestricted free agent under a new agreement.
