There isn't any media outlet reporting this, but you have to think the Seahawks will now make a run at LB Larry Grant. Their starting MLB David Hawthorne just signed with the Saints so they have a huge hole in the middle of the their defense. They won't have to give up much based on his original round tender (7th round pick) and they have seen how well he can perform when needed. Either that or they draft the kid out of Boston College Kuechley and also try to sign another LB.
It's a minor distinction, but Grant played well in a 3-4. He didn't necessarily distinguish himself as a Ram in their 4-3, so I'm not sure those teams (like Seattle) will rush out to sign Grant. They might, but I think he'll be less attractive to 4-3 teams. If he does get bites, it likely will be with 3-4 (or hybrid) teams that need ILB help like Indy, Houston, KC, Arizona (strong possibility IMO) or Pittsburgh if they clear enough cap space.
Good point. Guess we will find out soon enough. I think the deadline to make offers to RFA's is April 20th. One way or another, I think Grant gets some offers before then.
