Ryan Grant agrees to deal with Redskins

September 25, 2012

The Washington Redskins and free agent running back Ryan Grant have agreed to a one-year contract worth just less than $1.2 million including incentives, a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed Tuesday evening.

The former Green Bay Packer was flying to the D.C. area Tuesday evening. Grant also worked out for the Chicago Bears on Tuesday.

The Redskins were down to one healthy running back, rookie Alfred Morris, with Evan Royster (knee) and Roy Helu Jr. (foot) both injured. It wasn’t immediately clear what roster move the Redskins made to create room on the 53-man roster for Grant.

A six-year veteran, Grant has rushed for 4,016 yards in his career, averaging 4.3 yards per carry. He has 25 rushing touchdowns.

Grant started 14 games in 2011 but tallied only 134 carries for 559 yards.
