Patriots Work Out WR Ryan Grant

After the Raiders broke up their seven-wide receiver contingent by releasing Ryan Grant, the sixth-year pass catcher headed east for a workout. The Patriots auditioned Grant on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of tweets.

Grant caught four passes for just 14 yards as a Raider this season. He snagged 35 passes for 334 yards with the Colts in 2018, that coming after his lucrative Ravens deal fell through.

Prior to his stays in Indianapolis and Oakland, Grant was a four-year contributor in Washington. Though, he was only a regular in two of those seasons. The most notable Grant slate came in his 2017 contract year, when the post-DeSean Jackson/Pierre Garcon Redskins deployed him as a 10-game starter. He posted a career-high 573 receiving yards that season.

The Patriots have signed (and cut or traded) numerous veteran wideouts over the past two years. They have six receivers on their active roster, though Matthew Slater operates almost entirely as a special-teamer.
