The Green Bay Packers tendered tight end Robert Tonyan as a restricted free agent at the second-round level Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

Tonyan, who will turn 27 in April, would make $3.38 million in 2021 if he stays with the Packers, or Green Bay would receive a second-round draft pick if it doesn’t match an offer from another club.

He enjoyed a breakout season in 2020, setting career highs for catches (52), receiving yards (586) and touchdowns (11), while sharing tight end duties with Marcedes Lewis.

Tonyan, who caught eight passes for 82 yards and one touchdown in two playoff games last season, had just 14 catches for 177 yards and two touchdowns in his first two NFL seasons.
