Center Chris Spencer and wide receiver Ben Obomanu have signed the tenders they were given when they became restricted free agents in February, as has linebacker David Hawthorne – an exclusive-rights free agent.
General manager John Schneider just made those announcements during Q&A session with reporters who cover the team.
Spencer is back at center in the team’s three-day minicamp that ends today, after playing the final three games at right guard last season. Obomanu is working at split end with the No. 1 offense. Hawthorne has played both middle linebacker in full-team drills, as well as outside linebacker in 7-on-7 drills. That’s because middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu has been limited while recovering from pectoral surgery and outside linebacker Leroy Hill has been excused from this camp.
