Ryan Grant+Jordan Black=Trent Williams right leg.

re: Redskins Sign RB Ryan Grant/Place Roy Helu Jr. on IR

About time, I've been calling this for months.

With Roy not being the Helu that we used to know (singing), and Royster also getting banged up a little, we needed another RB in case Morris goes down. We're a run-heavy team...we're going to need more than 3 bodies at HB.

Love this move since he's a backup. He's not starter-material any more but for depth, great acquisition.

Absolutely. We've been trying to replace Portis' blocking since he went down.

We need to protect RGIII.


Grant reportedly had an outstanding workout with the Bears and had offers from multiple teams.

Ryan Grant had an impressive workout with #Bears today. He is expected to sign a contract tonight -- but with another club.

Nice move, and I'm sure the dolphins still want picks for slaton, so forget that.

re: Redskins Sign RB Ryan Grant/Place Roy Helu Jr. on IR

There must have been something about Slaton health-wise or personal that made that deal fall through. We could have signed him after they waived him too and we declined again.

He was a fumbler too. Had talent and was a beast stat-wise before he was injured and Arian Foster arrived, but he was a fumbler. That's the last thing we need now...we're winning the TO battle every week. It's been ages since that has happened.


The RB-desperate Lions worked Slaton out last week and turned him down too.

There's a reason no one wants him. I don't know what it is, but there has to be a valid reason he can't make a team any more. He used to be a great back.

Everybody forget about Slaton. Our FO did their homework on him.

You've jinxed it now. He will go to some team, rush for 990 yds this season, and everyone will be slamming BA/KS for not getting it done.

I am also with others on this thread that are wondering who or whom the Skins have cut to make this happen. Anyone know?

I have a pretty good idea, but I'm looking to confirm. It won't be a surprise

Funny how they signed Grant for just under 1.2 million, but wanted Portis to re-sign for the veteran minimum. I hope Grant is worth every penny.

There were few other suitors for Portis, but I am sure the Skins had to make a strong offer to Grant to peel him away from other teams.

Chris Clemons will rush for 2,500 yards this year even though he plays defense. That's what happens when Skins go to other teams.

They could IR someone I guess to free up a spot.

No surprise. Helu hasn't looked right at all in these 3 games.
