2012 NFL Free Agency: 49ers Must Tender Larry Grant Before Tuesday Deadline

More: 49ers to tender RFA Larry Grant

Larry Grant, a special teams player for the San Francisco 49ers is scheduled to be a restricted free agent. While Grant could return as a backup for the 49ers, he might be highly sought after by other NFL teams due to his performance in the absence of pro-bowler Patrick Willis in December.

Matt Maiocco from Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area explains:

The sides are not negotiating a contract extension, sources said.

The 49ers would have the right of first refusal and receive a seventh-round draft pick as compensation with an "equal-round tender" of approximately $1.26 million for Grant. Or, the 49ers could give Grant a tender of $1.92 million to ensure a second-round pick as compensation if he were to leave.

Some possible destinations for Grant? The Philadelphia Eagles are is one team to throw out there.
