Ryan Grant Still Needs a Contract
Ryan Grant came out of Notre Dame in 2005 and was signed by the New York Giants as a free agent. Last season he played for the Green Bay Packers, competing in 15 games and gaining a total of 956 yards while averaging 5.1 yards per carry. In his first season with The Pack, Grant crossed the goal line eight times and did not have one fumble all season. He also caught 30 passes for 145 yards, giving him a total of 1,101 yards.
Grant was originally signed by the New York Giants in 2005 as an undrafted free agent. He played on the practice squad that season. The following year prior to the start of the 2006 season, he was injured when he was in a bar and someone bumped into him, sending his left arm into a collection of champagne glasses that shattered, severing his ulnar nerve, an artery and a tendon. Grant almost bled to death and it was thought, after it was certain that he would survive, that he might never regain the use of his left hand.
However, he did and he was traded to the Packers on September 1, 2007. And now, after all of that, which has included a productive season with the Pack, Grant looks to be the running back of choice for Green Bay. Still, the running back, who has shown up for all Packer sessions this spring, does not yet have a contract.
In the end, the contract looks like a done deal once Grant and Green Bay agree as to what that deal should contain.
