Ravens reach deal with wide receiver Ryan Grant
Free agency won’t even open for another 19 hours, but somebody needs to cut off the wide receiver market and call it a cab.
Grant has 84 career receptions for 985 yards and six touchdowns in four seasons.
If the total value of the deal is accurate, that’s $345,238 and change per career reception.
That’s not to say the Ravens can’t use Grant, as their options were limited. But the market for pass-catchers has gone bananas today, with players coming off injury or with middling statistics getting lucrative deals.
From Sammy Watkins (never caught more than 65 passes in a season) getting $16 million a year to Allen Robinson (coming off a torn ACL) getting $14 million per year, the market has skyrocketed for players who are not necessarily stars.
