The Green Bay Packers haven't signed a free agent running back and they didn't spend a draft pick on a back either, but they still haven't seemed terribly interested in bringing Ryan Grant back to the team. If Ted Thompson has had a change of heart (or was simply bluffing all along), he'll have to make a move shortly. According to Grant's agent Alan Herman, the running back is considering an offer from the Detroit Lions.

Detroit could certainly use some help from a healthy and experienced back. Mikel Leshoure is coming off of an injury and has been arrested twice this offseason for possession of marijuana. Jahvid Best is a fantastic young back, but he has suffered multiple concussions in his college and pro career. Jerome Harrison is a career backup, Kevin Smith wasn't even wanted by the Lions until they had multiple injuries, and Keiland Williams was a waiver claim.

Grant hasn't been terrific since his knee injury, but given the Lions' current running back situation, he would almost certainly have a shot to win a job.
