Packers lowballing Grant?

Monday, July 28, 2008 | Print Entry

Ryan Grant's holdout in Green Bay is particularly weird because it comes when Devin Hester of the Bears received a four-year extension that could be worth as much as $40 million.

The Bears paid Hester for his accomplishments on the field and his potential. Grant, whose running in the second half of last season helped the Packers reach the NFC Championship Game, was offered a six-year contract that pretty much asks him to prove himself again. According to his agent, Alan Herman, the Packers are only willing to give Grant a $1.75 million signing bonus and a $370,000 base salary on a six-year deal.

Grant, 25, is willing to work out a creative contract that includes incentives, but Herman thinks it's ridiculous to sign for less than half of what linebacker Brady Poppinga received last week in a contract extension. In other words, Brett Favre isn't the only Packer who isn't happy.

At the same time...one year wonder who's often injured. Can you blame the Pack?

It looks like Grant got his pay day. 4 years 30 million with 4.25 guranteed. A lot of it is incentive based.
Bet he's glad he's not stuck at the bottom of the Giants depth chart anymore.
