They can match it. But they need to think about their chances of signing him next season to a long term deal or if they would rather have the 3rd round pick. But yes 2.5 is much more doable. I'm with you and hoping to get that extra 3rd rounder. Sanders hasn't been consistent and wouldn't sign his tender, which means he probably thinks very highly of his worth.
