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.
