Another week and another body as the Raiders sign former Redskins and Colts wideout Ryan Grant.

Unrestricted free agent wide receiver Ryan Grant signed a deal with the Raiders today.

Grant, originally a fifth-round selection of Washington in the 2014 NFL draft, played 2018 in Indianapolis. Last season Grant appeared in 14 games (starting 10) and catching 35 passes for 334 yards and one touchdown.

Over the course of his career, Grant has played in 78 career games and made 25 starts, hauling in 119 receptions for a total 1,319 yards, scoring seven times.

Grant’s best season came under Raiders coach Jon Gruden’s brother Jay in 2017. That season, Grant had 45 receptions for 573 yards and four touchdowns.

The 6-foot, 204-pound receiver joins a remade wide receiver squad in Oakland along with Tyrell Williams, JJ Nelson, Seth Roberts, and the big fish: Antonio Brown.
