Ryan Grant Won’t Be Back

Ryan Grant

Anyone holding out hope that the Green Bay Packers might bring running back Ryan Grant back for the 2012 season can officially give up hope.

The Packers, who’ve shown no interest in re-signing Grant this offseason, gave his locker away earlier this week, according to Rob Demovsky.

The #Packers have given @RyanGrant25’s locker to Diondre Borel. It still had Grant’s name on it at rookie camp.

Borel, a college quarterback the Packers converted to receiver, spent last season on the practice squad after going undrafted out of Utah State. He seemingly has a legitimate shot at making the roster this season, but we’re basing that more on his performance in training camp last season than his new locker.

Grant will end his Packers career with 4,016 yards, a 4.3 average and 25 rushing touchdowns in five seasons. We made his case for the Packers Hall of Fame on PackersHallofFame.com.

The Packers will turn to James Starks, who’s been injured on and off during his two NFL seasons, as their clear-cut No. 1 back.

    I like the young backs they have I love starks finish I think the rookies from last year will grow a lot with a full camp and the dude from USC has a chip to prove.

      He’s too slow, if he was bigger and could be a FB then he’d have a shot.

      His only shot is making the PS and hoping that 2 RB’s get injured.

    Ryan Grant was a very good Packer and contributor despite what these other asshats are saying. I suspect he still may find his way back to GB during the season assuming that no one picks him up the remainder of the offseason (due to camp injuries in other teams programs).

      Ass hats… wake up and smell the coffee bruh. Grant huffs dong and you know it. Enough of this church-up bullshit.

    Who is this Ryan Grant you speak of?

    Yeah, he disappears in big games, like that playoff game against Seattle… oh, nevermind.

        One would have to be handed the ball before they could do anything.

        If we are going to get rid of everyone who didn’t do shit against the Giants in either home playoff game, then we wouldn’t have many players left. No?

    Fumbles played well as an undrafted rookie.
    Truth is, we won a Superbowl when Fumbles got injured against the shEagles in week one, two seasons ago.
    We drafted a kid named Alex Green in the third round last year…he is coming off a knee injury but i think he will be a nice 1-2 punch along with James Starks.
    Truth is, this isn’t 1990…the shelf-life of an NFL running back is about 5 or 6 seasons…
    Farewell, Fumbles. I’m sure you’ll get a look by the Minnesota ViQueens.
