The Ravens decided to double-dip on wide receivers today. After signing John Brown to a one-year/$5 million deal, they went back-to-back, signing WR Ryan Grant to a four-year/ $29 million deal. What?
“I don’t understand what the hell this contract is about. It would actually make more sense if the Ravens gave Ryan Grant a 4-year deal worth $2.9 million rather than $29 million. Out of four seasons, Grant failed to reach double-digit receptions in two of them.” —walterfootball
“Grant has 84 career receptions for 985 yards and six touchdowns in four seasons.
If the total value of the deal is accurate, that’s $345,238 and change per career reception.
That’s not to say the Ravens can’t use Grant, as their options were limited.
