I do not think there is a third round tender.
True, there are 4 levels, 1st and 3rd, 1st, 2nd and original round level(7th for Grant, none for Spillman, since he was a UDFA).
Use to be just 3 levels, there was no 2nd rd, they did it this way when the uncapped year began I believe.
2nd rd tender makes most sense, if he gets an outrageous contract, dont match take the 2nd, and have an extra pick to use either in draft or trade up. Philly seems most logical, they own 2 2nds, they would have to give us there 2nd, and not Arizona's since by rule it has to be your own pick, so if a team that doesnt have a 2nd, like Arizona signs him we actually get there 1st.
The Eagles are the only team that might try to sign Grant if we place a 2nd round tender on him.
The Eagles are in desperate need of an run stopping inside linebacker--and they need a starter now.
They took Casey Matthews in the draft last year, and he bombed.
Instead of gambling in the draft again, they might opt to sign Grant.
The Eagles have pick #46 and pick #51 from Arizona.
I would rather keep Grant, but if he goes I want the extra second round pick.
