Much like Cedric Benson, it is extremely surprising that Ryan Grant has remained unsigned for this long. Sure, he is coming off a major injury during the 2010 season, but with limited carries last year, he still posted 4.2 yards per carry. He also was coming off back-to-back 1,200-yard seasons before his season-ending injury in 2010.
However, Grant will be 30 years old in December this year, and teams are clearly wondering how big an impact he can make this year, even in a reserve role. Well, the answer to that question is that he can still have quite the impact this year because of his best quality: taking care of the football.
In 924 career carries, Grant has only put the ball on the ground eight times. That means that Grant fumbles .8 percent of the time he carries the football.
This type of care for the football simply can't be taught, and that assurance is why Grant will make an impact this year.
