2012 NFL Free Agents: Ryan Grant's Skills Are Best Suited for Lions' Offense
Grant should accept the offer.
His skill set and past experience make him a nice fit in Detroit.
Sure, he's no longer the guy he was in 2008 and 2009 who ran for over 1,200 yards and scored a total of 15 rushing touchdowns, but if healthy, he can contribute to the Lions in the short term.
Furthermore, shouldering a relatively light load is probably the best thing for Grant at this point in his career and after his injuries.
Only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 346 total carries were less than the Lions' 356 rushing attempts in 2011.
Mikel Leshoure is coming off a season-ending injury. Jahvid Best has battled injuries throughout his young career, as has Kevin Smith.
It seems like the Lions will almost be forced into a running back-by-committee approach in 2012.
And because Detroit's offense is so threatening down the field, chances are many of Grant's carries would catch the defense off-guard.
He'd have a real possibility to stay fresh with limited carries and to make the most out of the times he does touch the football.
Oh yeah, and the Lions are an exciting, up-and-coming NFC club oozing with promise.
For Grant, what's not to like?
