  NFL | 48 receivers invited to scouting combine    Fri Feb 7, 02:37 AM

Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis, Fresno State WR Davante Adams, LSU WR Odell Beckham, Florida State WR Kelvin Benjamin, Vanderbilt WR Chris Boyd, Ohio State WR Corey Brown, Pittsburg State WR John Brown, Clemson WR Martavis Bryant, Fresno State WR Isaiah Burse, Wake Forest WR Michael Campanaro, Rutgers WR Brandon Coleman, Northwestern WR Kain Colter, Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks, Louisville WR Damian Copeland, Texas WR Mike Davis, South Carolina WR Bruce Ellington, Nebraska WR Quincy Enunwa, Texas A&M WR Mike Evans, UCLA WR Shaq Evans, Michigan State WR Bennie Fowler, New Mexico State WR Austin Franklin, Michigan WR Jeremy Gallon, Tulane WR Ryan Grant, Coastal Carolina WR Matt Hazel, Wyoming WR Robert Herron, BYU WR Cody Hoffman, Oregon WR Josh Huff, Miami (Fla.) WR Allen Hurns, Saginaw Valley State WR Jeff Janis, Notre Dame WR T.J. Jones, LSU WR Jarvis Landry, Indiana WR Cody Latimer, USC WR Marqise Lee, Missouri WR Marcus Lucas, Vanderbilt WR Jordan Matthews, Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief, Alabama WR Kevin Norwood, Murray State WR Walt Powell, Baylor WR Tevin Reese, Colorado WR Paul Robinson, Penn State WR Allen Robinson, Oklahoma WR Jalen Saunders, Ball State WR Willie Snead, Oklahoma State WR Josh Stewart, Pittsburgh WR Devin Street, Missouri WR L'Damian Washington, Clemson WR Sammy Watkins and Georgia State WR Albert Wilson have all been invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, which will be held in Indianapolis from Feb. 22-25.

Footballguys view: This is a deep class of wide receivers. Our five favorite to watch? Sammy Watkins (Clemson), Mike Evans (Texas A&M), Marqise Lee (USC), Jordan Matthews (Vanderbilt) and Kelvin Benjamin (Florida State). A couple of more? Paul Richardson (Colorado), Odell Beckham Jr. (LSU), Jarvis Landry (LSU) and Robert Herron (Wyoming). We could go on and on raving about this draft class.

  Giants | Speaking to running backs    Tue Sep 3, 02:18 PM

The New York Giants have spoken to free agent RBs Ryan Grant (Packers) and Kevin Smith (Lions), but the team is not expected to sign anyone until Week 2.

Footballguys view: The Giants are looking for better depth at the RB position behind David Wilson. They could add a veteran after the first week of the regular season. Then the salary would not be fully guaranteed for the entire year.

  Packers | Ryan Grant unlikely to return    Mon Feb 18, 04:15 PM

The Green Bay Packers likely will not be interested in re-signing impending free-agent RB Ryan Grant this offseason.

Footballguys view: This could be it for Grant's pro career. He'll likely have to wait until RB injuries hit in training camp before getting another team to consider adding him.

  Packers | Ryan Grant not expected to return    Sun Jan 20, 04:24 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Ryan Grant is not expected to return next season.

Footballguys view: It took a major string of injuries at the running back position for Grant to get signed by the Packers this year, and he didn't do anything to make them think they made a mistake waiting so long to bring him back.

  Packers | RBs were not used much as receivers     Fri Jan 11, 06:49 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green, Ryan Grant, James Starks and DuJuan Harris combined for only 25 catches during the regular season. RB Cedric Benson (foot) caught 14 passes and was on pace for 44 catches this season before he was placed on Injured Reserve.

Footballguys view: The Packers tried running the ball more this season but didn't have the success they did earlier this year with Benson in the starting lineup.

  Packers | DuJuan Harris trying to get accustomed to cold weather     Wed Jan 2, 05:13 PM

Green Bay Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt said RB DuJuan Harris practiced without sleeves Wednesday, Jan. 2, to try and get comfortable playing in cold weather. Van Pelt said ball security could be a factor in the cold weather but Harris has big hands for his size which should help in that area. RB Ryan Grant could receive more carries in the Wild Card playoff game because he has played in cold weather playoff games before. Van Pelt said RB Alex Green will be available to the coaches whenever they need him to play.

Footballguys view: Harris has ran hot when given a chance to tote the rock. We like his burst and change of direction ability. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has stated the team would use a 'hot hand' approach at the RB position. Harris has certainly earned more touches with his play in recent weeks.

  Packers | DuJuan Harris could main RB in playoff game     Wed Jan 2, 04:47 PM

Green Bay Packers RB DuJuan Harris may the team's primary running back in the team's Wild Card playoff game even though head coach Mike McCarthy has not named a main running back for the game. McCarthy said the team will get Harris, RB Alex Green and RB Ryan Grant ready to play and will see how the game is going before deciding which back will get the most carries.

Footballguys view: We think this is the most likely scenario. Harris just runs hotter and with more energy than Green or Ryan Grant.

  Packers | Trio of RBs to see football    Wed Dec 26, 10:29 PM

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday, Dec. 26, that he plans to use RBs Ryan Grant, Alex Green and DuJuan Harris in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings. He plans to use the hot player, and not play favorites.

Footballguys view: Green missed last week's game and it lead to Grant being the hot hand. We'll see if that changes much this week.

  Packers | Ryan Grant gets into end zone twice     Sun Dec 23, 04:42 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Ryan Grant rushed for 80 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries against the Tennessee Titans in Week 16.

Footballguys view: Grant was mostly ineffective until the Packers had the game safely in hand, but his two garbage time touchdowns count just the same for owners that plugged him in as a last second running back play.

  Packers | James Starks dealing with bone bruise    Thu Dec 20, 07:42 PM

Green Bay Packers RB James Starks (knee) is dealing with a bone bruise in his right knee, and head coach Mike McCarthy plans to have him back for the playoffs. 'Yeah, it's a lot better,' Starks said. 'Just how I was bent, when you look at it, it looked a lot worse. So I just thank God for being able to possibly come back and do well. So no real, serious bad injuries.' Starks hasn't been able to practice but he's been staying busy in the weight room. In his absence, the Packers have gone with a combination of RBs Alex Green, DuJuan Harris and Ryan Grant.

Footballguys view: Green is battling a concussion right now so we could see more from Harris and Grant this week. The Packers RB situation isn't one to trust for fantasy owners.

  Packers | Ryan Grant injury update     Sat Dec 8, 09:58 AM

Green Bay Packers RB Ryan Grant had to accept a split contract Wednesday, Dec. 5, in his return to the team. His minimum base of $700,000 reduces to $368,000 if lands on Injured Reserve.

  Packers | Snow fitting for Ryan Grant's return    Fri Dec 7, 09:19 PM

The weather forecast for the Week 14 game between the Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers calls for the potential of multiple inches of snow before or during the Sunday night game. It is fitting for Packers RB Ryan Grant, who was re-signed this week. He set a franchise record with 201 yards and three touchdowns in the 2007 NFC Divisional playoffs against the Seattle Seahawks.

Footballguys view: Grant is back with the team but we're not expecting much from him. He'll serve as the backup RB behind Alex Green.

  Packers | Concerns about RBs    Fri Dec 7, 12:40 PM

Green Bay Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt is concerned with RBs Ryan Grant and DuJuan Harris due to their lack of playing time this season. The main concerns are ball security and blocking. Grant will especially need to focus on holding onto the ball tight since he hasn't been hit in a while after not playing at all this season. Harris will likely make his debut on offense in Week 14.

Footballguys view: This could lead to more touches for Alex Green, but he was lackluster when getting 20+ carries earlier this season.

  Packers | Ryan Grant expected to be active    Thu Dec 6, 02:56 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Ryan Grant is expected to be active in Week 14, according to manager Mike McCarthy. 'And frankly, where we are from a health standpoint, we might not have a choice,' McCarthy said.

Footballguys view: Grant should be the primary backup behind Alex Green. We're not expecting Grant to have much fantasy value.

  Packers | Ryan Grant agrees to terms     Wed Dec 5, 10:13 AM

The Green Bay Packers agreed to terms with free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Redskins) Wednesday, Dec. 5. Grant should be practicing with the team later in the day. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The move makes sense for the Packers. Grant has been on the street since his four game stint with the Redskins earlier this year. He knows the team and gives the team veteran depth at the RB position. Grant will likely serve as the primary backup behind Alex Green.

  Giants | Pass on several RBs    Tue Nov 27, 11:03 PM

The New York Giants gave free-agent RBs Rock Cartwright (49ers), Derrick Coleman (Vikings), Ryan Grant (Redskins) and Cadillac Williams (Rams) tryouts Tuesday, Nov. 27, before settling on RBs Kregg Lumpkin and Ryan Torain.

Footballguys view: Lumpkin is a versatile back who can contribute as a runner of receiver out of the backfield. Torain is more of a banger who can grind it out between the tackles and can be effective in a one cut system.

  Redskins | Keiland Williams signs    Tue Oct 23, 01:52 PM

The Washington Redskins signed free-agent RB Keiland Williams (Lions) Tuesday, Oct. 23, and released RB Ryan Grant in a corresponding move. Grant had only one carry for five yards.

Footballguys view: Williams gives the team more versatility at the RB position than Grant does. He could end up challenging Evan Royster to be the team's change of pace/third-down back behind Alfred Morris.

  Redskins | Ryan Grant's Week 5 status uncertain    Wed Oct 3, 04:41 PM

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said RB Ryan Grant has been making progress in learning the playbook but is not sure if Grant will be active Week 5.

Footballguys view: Even if he does play Grant won't get much playing time unless Alfred Morris is hurt. Grant is a nice handcuff to Morris but only in deeper leagues.

  Redskins | Week 4 Inactives    Sun Sep 30, 03:14 PM

The Washington Redskins have declared OG Adam Gettis, WR Aldrick Robinson, FS Brandon Meriweather, CB Cedric Griffin, DL Markus White, QB Rex Grossman, RB Ryan Grant inactive for Week 4.

Footballguys view: Pierre Garcon is active, but all signs point towards a "pitch count" per Adam Schefter. He's just an upside WR3/flex play.

  Redskins | Ryan Grant thinks he will fit well in offense    Wed Sep 26, 02:04 PM

Washington Redskins RB Ryan Grant said he believes he will perform well in the team's zone blocking scheme because it is similar to the one he used when he was with the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Grant's running style is perfect for the Redskins. He's a one cut, determined runner who is difficult to bring down. Grant is a backup right now behind Alfred Morris. He could have RB2 upside if he gets a chance to be the starter at any time in the future.

  Redskins | Ryan Grant adds depth    Tue Sep 25, 07:41 PM

Washington Redskins RB Ryan Grant will add depth to the running back corps with RBs Evan Royster (knee, toe) and Roy Helu Jr. (toe) dealing with injuries. Royster is day-to-day with a strained patella tendon in his right knee, and he also aggravated a pre-existing turf toe injury. Helu is dealing with turf toe and had been limited with an injured Achilles' tendon in the preseason. Royster was limping around Monday, Sept. 24. Helu was wearing a walking boot following the team's Week 3 game, but he's listed as day-to-day, too.

Footballguys view: Grant is no threat to the starting job - yet. So long as Alfred Morris continues to run hard with stamina and not fumble he should keep hold of his spot on the depth chart. Grant gives the Redskins valuable veteran depth.

  Redskins | Ryan Grant added    Tue Sep 25, 07:40 PM

The Washington Redskins will sign free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers) after he considered several offers from other clubs.

Footballguys view: Smart move for the Redskins here. With RBs Evan Royster (knee, toe) and Roy Helu Jr. (toe) dealing with injuries the team needed to add valuable veteran depth. Grant will serve as a backup behind Alfred Morris.

  Bears | Work out two running backs    Tue Sep 25, 05:27 PM

The Chicago Bears worked out free-agent RBs Ryan Grant (Packers) and Jacob Hester (Chargers) Tuesday, Sept. 25.

The Detroit Lions will bring in free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers) for a workout. Free-agent RB Steve Slaton (Dolphins) was also scheduled to be brought in for a workout this week.

Footballguys view: The Lions are doing their due diligence as they continue to look for veteran depth at the RB position. Mikel Leshoure is set to come back from his two game suspension and could be relied on as the starting RB soon.

  NFL | Ryan Grant patiently waiting for deal    Thu Aug 30, 02:05 AM

Free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers) is working out at IMG Academy, and his agent said Grant is 'patient' in waiting for the right offer.

Footballguys view: Grant's phone should ring sometime at the beginning of the year. He's a valuable veteran RB who can help as a runner and receiver out of the backfield.

  Jaguars | Not interested in Ryan Grant     Wed Aug 29, 10:07 AM

The Jacksonville Jaguars are not looking at free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers). In fact, they have zero interest in the running back.

Footballguys view: The Jaguars are missing Maurice Jones-Drew for now, and will move forward with Rashad Jennings as their starter. A veteran like Jalen Parmele could serve as the primary backup behind Jennings.

  Lions | Weren't interested in Cedric Benson    Tue Aug 14, 07:01 PM

The Detroit Lions reportedly weren't interested in signing Green Bay Packers RB Cedric Benson but are looking at free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers).

Footballguys view: This conflicts an earlier report that Benson turned down the Lions and Raiders. The Lions were linked to Grant and reportedly offered him a contract earlier this offseason. Grant would immediately have deep sleeper value if they sign him.

  Packers | Not expected to add a RB     Wed Jul 11, 11:15 AM

The Green Bay Packers are not expected to add a veteran running back to the roster, even though free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers) would like to re-sign with the team.

Footballguys view: While this can be seen as a good sign for James Starks and Alex Green on the surface, the Packers will likely continue to employ a committee in the backfield and a pass-heavy offense.

  Packers | Ryan Grant not expected to be in plans    Wed Jun 13, 01:56 AM

The Green Bay Packers are not expected to re-sign free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers), and his locker is now occupied. The team appears committed to RB James Starks as the primary back, and RB Alex Green (knee) as the No. 2 tailback.

Footballguys view: Grant is relegated to waiting for a team to suffer an injury to a key running back before he gets signed.

  Lions | Did not meet with Ryan Grant    Wed May 9, 01:21 PM

Updating a previous report, Alan Herman, agent for free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers), said Grant did not meet with the Detroit Lions as originally planned because of economic issues.

Footballguys view: Nice to get some clarity here. Earlier reports were mistaken in saying that Grant had met with the team. The Lions could certainly use a veteran RB on their roster with injury prone guys like Jahvid Best, Mikel LeShoure, and Kevin Smith.

  Lions | Unclear if Ryan Grant visited    Tue May 8, 02:16 PM

It's unclear if the Detroit Lions visited with free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers) Monday, May 7. Detroit may not have enough to ink Grant, though; they are thought to have less than $5 million before signing their draft picks. Grant visited with the New England Patriots in April.

Footballguys view: The Lions could certainly use a veteran RB like Grant on the roster. They have injury concerns with Jahvid Best (concussions), Mikel LeShoure (Achilles'), and Kevin Smith (knee). Grant would give them veteran depth and could be asked to start if injuries hit the RB corps again.

  Packers | Have not shown interest in Ryan Grant    Fri May 4, 02:53 PM

The Green Bay Packers have not had any conversations with free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers) about returning to the team.

Footballguys view: This is curious as Grant is only 29 and has low mileage. The Packers have no proven running backs and Grant is thoroughly familiar with their system. He could stay in the division with the Lions, who have offered him a contract.

  Lions | Ryan Grant considering offer    Thu May 3, 02:26 PM

Alan Herman, agent for free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers), said Grant is currently considering an offer from the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: It would be an interesting move for Grant here. The Lions need veteran depth at the RB position with the injury concerns with Mikel LeShoure, Jahvid Best, and Kevin Smith. Grant could also reunite with Reggie McKenzie on the Raiders.

  Raiders | Ryan Grant might be top of wish list    Tue May 1, 10:37 PM

Free-agent RB Cedric Benson (Bengals) reportedly wants to join the Oakland Raiders, but the team is more likely to pursue free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers) due to ties with general manager Reggie McKenzie, who was with the Green Bay Packers until this season.

Footballguys view: Grant would give the Raiders veteran depth at the RB position. They traded for Mike Goodson and he should begin the season as the primary backup behind Darren McFadden.

  Packers | Have shown interest in Ryan Grant    Sat Apr 21, 02:00 PM

The Green Bay Packers have expressed interest in re-signing free-agent RB Ryan Grant but may want to wait until after the 2012 NFL Draft to decide whether they want him back.

Footballguys view: The Packers may address the position in the 2012 NFL Draft. If they pass on RBs in the draft then bring back Grant is always an option. It will be difficult to trust James Starks or Alex Green as both have struggled with injuries in the recent past.

  Patriots | Meet with two free agent RBs    Fri Apr 20, 04:19 PM

The New England Patriots met with free-agent RBs Ryan Grant (Packers) and Tim Hightower (Redskins) Friday, April 20.

Footballguys view: The Patriots have a young backfield with second-year guys like Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley. Adding Grant or Hightower would give them some much needed veteran depth since they lost BenJarvus Green-Ellis in free agency to the Bengals.

  NFL | Ryan Grant could find new home soon    Tue Apr 17, 05:30 PM

Free-agent RB Ryan Grant (Packers) could land with a new team as early as this week, according to his agent. The Green Bay Packers are not one of the teams that is negotiating with Grant.

Footballguys view: Grant may have to wait until after the draft to find a new home. The veteran RB isn't the same player he used to be and his roster spot is not guaranteed when he finds a new home.

The Green Bay Packers have expressed interest in impending free-agent RB Ryan Grant but he is expected to hit the free-agent market. Grant's agent said there is expected to be interest in Grant and that he will looking for a team that fits him and make a good offer.

Footballguys view: The veteran RB could find his way onto a team in need of veteran depth at the position. Grant is unlikely to get a starting job, but could get added to a team and compete.

  Packers | Could consider bringing back Ryan Grant    Sun Feb 5, 02:11 PM

The Green Bay Packers may be interested in re-signing impending free-agent RB Ryan Grant to a one-year deal this offseason.

Footballguys view: The market for Grant isn't going to be that hot so his best situation may be staying in Green Bay. We don't think the Packers can trust James Starks as a featured back because of his injury history. Rookie Alex Green looked good in the preseason before he got hurt.

  Packers | Ryan Grant may not return     Tue Jan 17, 11:01 AM

The Green Bay Packers may not look to re-sign impending free-agent RB Ryan Grant. The Packers may hesitate to commit more guaranteed money to a 29-year old running back.

Footballguys view: Grant ran really well last week and the Packers should turn to their running game in the second half of what should be an easy win vs. the Chiefs. Grant deserves a look as a flex this week, if not an RB2.

Footballguys view: Grant ran with as much as burst as he did before his ankle injury last year. He has to be considered a potential flex play with the Packers playing very inferior opponents from here on out.
