Only low tender for Vikings QB

Restricted free agent QB Tavaris Jackson has only received a low tender from the Minnesota Vikings.

That according to’s Jason LaCanfora. The low tender usually provides compensation in the form of a draft pick matching the original round in which the player was drafted. Jackson is a former second-round pick, however since some of Minnesota’s other RFAs were tendered at a second-round level, Jackson’s low tender is knocked down a peg to the third round.

So an NFL team would need to only surrender a third-round pick as compensation for Jackson if they signed him to an offer sheet and the Vikings chose not to match. I think there’s a reasonable chance that some NFL team might give it a shot. Would you do it?
