Colts signed Ryan Grant, formerly of the Redskins, to a one-year, $5 million contract.
The news comes from ex-Packers receiver James Jones, who is breaking news faster than Adam Schefter these days. The deal is considerably less than Grant would have made in Baltimore, but he will get a shot to hit free agency again next spring. Grant is a solid receiver who will help fill out the Colts' paper-thin receiving corps, but they still could use more help. As it stands, T.Y. Hilton, Chester Rogers, and Grant top the depth chart.

The Raiders plan to visit with free agent WR Ryan Grant.

Grant passed his physical with the Colts, but left without a deal. In Oakland, he would compete with Seth Roberts for the No. 3 role behind Amari Cooper and Jordy Nelson.

Free agent WR Ryan Grant's ankle has been medically cleared by Dr. Robert Anderson, and Grant will visit the Colts on Friday.

Anderson is the renowned doctor most teams go to for anything foot or ankle related. The Ravens failed Grant's physical because of the "injury," but the widespread belief is they had buyer's remorse after giving Grant a whopping $14.5 million guaranteed. GM Ozzie Newsome said he had "no control" over the failed physical. It's a bummer for Grant, who is unlikely to get that kind of money from another team, but his agent said if there was a game tomorrow, Grant would be able to play. The Colts need to replace Donte Moncrief out wide.

Ryan Grant's four-year, $29 million contract with the Ravens has been voided after he failed his physical, sending him back to free agency.

Grant's deal — which included $14.5 million guaranteed — was widely criticized as an overpay, and this seems like an underhanded tactic by the Ravens to get out of it. It's extremely similar to what happened between the Raiders and Rodger Saffold in 2014. Suspiciously, the news came soon after it was reported the Ravens were interested in Michael Crabtree, who was released on Thursday. 27-year-old Grant, who has never posted more than 573 yards in a season, now heads back to a market where he could struggle to get even half the guaranteed money he had landed in Baltimore.
Mar 15 - 6:37 PM's Ian Rapoport reports there's been a "holdup" in Ryan Grant's four-year, $29 million contract with the Ravens after the team "found something in the physical that concerned them."

Grant's deal guarantees him $14.5 million, a number the Ravens are apparently no longer comfortable with. Of course, it's unclear why they were ever comfortable with it in the first place. It's quite possible they're simply having buyer's remorse. The situation figures to result in a revised contract, or even Grant being released back to the open market. It's shades of what happened with Rodger Saffold and the Raiders in 2014.
Mar 15 - 6:30 PM

Ravens agreed to terms with WR Ryan Grant, formerly of the Redskins, on a four-year, $29 million contract.

The deal contains $14.5 million guaranteed, including a $10 million signing bonus. This is a real head-scratcher and reeks of desperation from GM Ozzie Newsome, who promised to overhaul the receiving corps, only to whiff on every other big name available. Grant, entering his age-28 year, came into 2017 with 39 career catches for 412 yards and two scores before "breaking out" for a 45-573-4 line last season. He's the new default No. 1 receiver in Baltimore.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim reports the team will try to re-sign impending free agent WR Ryan Grant.

Per Keim, the team likes the 27-year-old wideout "a lot." It's hardly a surprise, as Grant has been a teacher's pet-type under coach Jay Gruden. Consistently utilized as the No. 3 in 2017, Grant caught a career-high 45 passes. In reality, he is best served as a No. 4. Keim reports the team wants to add a burner opposite Josh Doctson.

Ryan Grant hauled in 2-of-5 targets for 23 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Giants.

Dubbed Ryan Gruden by former GM Scot McCloughan, Grant is a coach favorite who consistently worked as the No. 3 receiver this season despite better options behind him on the depth chart for much of the year. That work allowed him to post a career-high in catches (45), yards (573), and touchdowns (4). Grant is scheduled to be a free agent, but it is unlikely any organization will value him as highly as Washington, meaning he should return as the No. 3 option next year.

Ryan Grant caught 4-of-6 targets for 85 yards in the Redskins' Week 16 win over the Broncos.

Grant's 85 yards led the team, and were a new season high. Grant has a plus Week 17 matchup in the Giants but is hard to take seriously as a WR4.

Ryan Grant pulled in two-of-three targets for 20 yards Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 15 win over the Cardinals.

Grant made a nice catch in traffic on a third-quarter slant route. That went for a 15-yard pickup. Aside from that, it was slim pickings for Grant in a game where the Redskins held the ball for just 23 of 60 minutes. Grant will have his work cut out for him next week against the Broncos’ elite secondary.

Ryan Grant caught 5-of-9 targets for 76 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 13 loss to the Cowboys.

Grant led the 'Skins in targets and yards. Both the catches and yards were new season highs. By necessity, Grant has become more involved in the offense, but we wouldn't count on tonight as the start of a statistical trend. Grant will be a WR5 for Week 14 against the Chargers.

Ryan Grant contributed one catch for three yards on two targets Thursday in the Redskins’ Week 12 win over the Giants.

He drew fewer targets Jamison Crowder, Niles Paul, Josh Doctson and Samaje Perine. Grant will stay in the mix with Terrelle Pryor (ankle) done for the year, though his fantasy appeal remains limited. He gets the Cowboys in Week 13.

Ryan Grant caught 3-of-3 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 11 loss to the Saints.

Grant's score was a 40-yarder where he was left all alone as the Saints brought the house on a blitz. He literally walked into the end zone. Grant has settled in as the Redskins' No. 3 receiver as Terrelle Pryor has faded from relevance. It isn't translating to legitimate fantasy value.

Ryan Grant (concussion) is questionable for Week 11 against the Saints.

Grant remains in the concussion protocol despite getting in some practice this week. His status is up in the air for Sunday. With Terrelle Pryor sidelined and Brian Quick also questionable, the Redskins could be down to Josh Doctson, Jamison Crowder, and Maurice Harris as their only healthy wideouts.
Fri, Nov 17, 2017 06:31:00 PM

Redskins WR Ryan Grant is out for the remainder of Sunday's Week 10 game with a concussion.

Grant took a hit to the upper body from Linval Joseph on his third reception of the opening quarter that sent him to the locker room where he was diagnosed with a concussion.
