Signing Ryan Grant Long Term

This headline is confusing and made it sound like RB Ryan Grant signed a two year contract, but it's just explaining that he is under the Packers exclusive control for the next two seasons. I'd be stunned if GM Ted Thompson gives him a long term contract in 2008. He didn't reward RB Samkon Gado with anything after his surprising 2005 season, and that turned out to be a wise move. If Grant keeps the starting job next season, he had a great 2007 season but you never know when injuries will strike (he was out injured all of 2006) and he was beat out last season by RB Deshawn Wynn, who should return in 2008, then he might receive a longer deal in 2009.
