Should Larry Grant be given a 2nd round tender?

Grant had 39 tackles, five passes defended, 2 sacks, and one forced fumble this year.

Grant played in every game this year and started three when Willis was out.

In the three games he started, Grant showed the rest of the NFL that he could be a starting linebacker.

Grant is a restricted free agent, and some team will want to sign him. We should offer him a 2nd round tender.

If we do this we will have the opportunity to match any offer he receives.

If we do not match the offer, the team that signs him will have to give us a second round pick.

As a starting inside linebacker, Grant would easily be worth a second pick.

Either way, we will be protected.

edit: Changed the title of the thread to make it more clear.

My answer is yes.

Probably, at least a 3rd.
Definitely, yes. Paying Grant 1.7 or 1.9 mil (whatever the exact $) is a good bargain price for Grant's ability.

I do not think there is a third round tender.

Yeah, why not? We did it for Haralson and Brooks when they where back ups and it worked out well. Plus, we despertly need the depth.
I think we should give Horace the 1.8 million
Nobody is going to offer Grant a draft pick that high. You have to remember that Grant was playing in our system, next to a star inside backer, a superstar RDE, and two DB's who were Pro-Bowlers.
Offering something that high would simply guarantee that he would be with the team in 2012.

I think we might get a lower pick for him somehow but I'm not sure: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Restricted_free_agent#Tender_amounts

where is AB when you need him?

The tender lower than the second is for the original draft pick. Grant was a 7th round pick in 2008.

Giving less than a 2nd round tender would not provide the team with any real protection.
