Larry Grant To Sign His Restricted Free-Agent Tender Today

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Larry Grant will sign his restricted free-agent tender today, according to the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows who cited Grant's agent. Grant will become an unrestricted free agent next season.

Grant fell victim to an empty market for restricted free agents and ended up not visiting with any other teams. It turned out to be a good thing for the Niners as Grant was productive in the time he was on the field this past season, especially during a three-game stint where Grant started in place of star linebacker Patrick Willis towards the end of the season.

Grant finished with 30 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble after playing 226 snaps on defense while also contributing to 238 plays on special teams.

Grant should re-assume his role as the backup for both Willis and NaVorro Bowman this season.
