The Browns have offered a second-round restricted free agent tender to tight end Evan Moore, a league source said today. Last week at the NFL Scouting Combine, Browns General Manager Tom Heckert said Moore would soon be under contract, so the gesture was expected.

Moore, 26, started four of the 12 games in which he appeared during the 2010 season. He had 16 catches for 322 yards and a touchdown. An injury affected Moore's hip and groin, causing him to finish this past season on injured reserve.

Moore entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the New Orleans Saints. In 2010, his base salary was $395,000. Under the current collective bargaining agreement, which is set to expire at 11:59 p.m. Thursday, the tender extended to Moore is valued at $1.835 million.
