Nothing new between Lions and Ryan Grant

We noted last week that free agent running back Ryan Grant had an offer on the table from the Detroit Lions, and subsequent reports suggested Grant would visit the Lions as early as Monday. So I wanted to pass along that ESPN's John Clayton confirmed that Grant did not visit Monday and has no visits scheduled.

Running backs have had an especially difficult time gaining traction in this free agent market, considering the continuing shift toward the passing game. If the Green Bay Packers have interest in re-signing Grant, it appears to be minimal.

Grant has said he would prefer to remain with the Packers, and the Lions have three other running backs in Jahvid Best, Mikel Leshoure and Kevin Smith with whom to compete.
