Bears defensive end Mark Anderson has a disappointing 4.5 sacks the last two seasons. But the Bears could try to lure other teams to pursue Anderson by placing a second-rounder tender on him.
As a rookie in 2006, Anderson collected 12 sacks as a situational pass rusher. That number is nothing to scoff at, and other teams could be interested in adding Anderson to their defensive line rotation.
A team with a lower second-round pick may consider that just reasonable enough to make a play for Anderson, and the Bears could opt to match or pass. If they declined to match, then the Bears would pick up a second-round pick, which is important since they currently are without one for April's draft.
