Ryan Grant is still without a team and without a contract offer from the Green Bay Packers, and it's looking more and more unlikely that the running back is going to return to the team. Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin had a post today about Grant and Alex Green. Standing out in the post were the quotes from Aaron Rodgers and Green, and the ultimate point was that Green is going to need to step up next season, but there was another interesting tidbit buried in there.
Grant's agent, Alan Herman, said over the Memorial Day weekend that there has been no communication from the Packers on his client, and at the first organized team activity practice of the offseason, Grant's locker had been given away.
While no player on the roster is currently wearing his No. 25, his locker, which is at the entryway to the showers and rehabilitation area, had been given to wide receiver Diondre Borel. During the team's rookie orientation camp, Grant's name plate was still above his locker.
Any members of the Illuminati in the house? Want to tell us what it means that Grant's locker has been given away, but that his nameplate is still there? Does anyone think there's any chance of Grant returning to the team? If the Packers still aren't talking to Alan Herman, it seems highly unlikely that they have any interest in bringing back Grant. Which is good for Diondre Borel, because he'd have to move to a crappy locker.
