Been "looking" off and on for months. Never thought it was too serious though

With Helu and Royster banged up we needed a RB, but Slaton I thought would've been a better signing. Hightower is still rehabing his knee from what I've read, and not fully healed. Grant might be a pleasant surprise and an added bonus/weapon to our offense; we'll see.

Prior to the season I would have said bad fit, but with the way teams are respecting Griffin, he might be a really nice pick-up.

i favor slaton as well.

as hightower, why come back to play in preseason when you're still rehabbing? he wasn't 100% and he got cut. here's wishing tim a full and speedy recovery.

is it official?

Can he block or cover a WR?

i like this part "Grant was actually in the Bears’ locker room when he got the call informing him that he had an offer with the Redskins." snatched!

Funny you should mention that...

CB Butler released due to injury (hammy), and CB David Jones signed.

Now you can ask if he can cover a WR? Lol.

Did Helu even play last week? I remember Royster but not Helu.
