Nothing doing between Jaguars and Ryan Grant

Twitter has opened up a whole new arena for communication, although it sometimes falls short when it comes to expressing an accurate message.

It looks like that a tweet and picture sent out by free agent running back Ryan Grant early on Wednesday is the latest example of that. Grant sent out a tweet reading “Sharp..Focused.” along with an Instagram photo of a Jaguars face. With Maurice Jones-Drew still steering clear of the team, some people took that to mean that Grant would be headed to Jacksonville to continue his football career.

As with most speculation focused on two words and a picture of a large cat, there turned out to be nothing to it. Mark Long of the Associated Press reported the Jags have no interest in Grant and Grant cleared things up via another tweet on Wednesday.

While the Jags might be content with Rashad Jennings and Montell Owens, it is a bit surprising that Grant hasn’t been able to find work yet this offseason. He certainly isn’t the best back in football, but there are enough teams that could find a place for Grant in their backfields that his continued unemployment is a bit hard to figure out.

  1. I agree him still being a FA is shocking….especially considering McFadden’s fragility and McKenzie’s presence.

  2. Ryan just found that the Jaguar as an animalist symbol and team talisman, was more attractive than the 300 pound, pasty white, fatty rolled, beer swilling, trailer park dwelling, (Pound) Packer of his previous team.

  3. I’m a little surprised too that Grant hasn’t been picked up. Actually I’m surprised the Packers didn’t want him back. He not a burner or anything like that but he’s servicable and doesn’t put the ball on ground. The only issue with Grant that I’ve heard is that he can be a complainer and over values himself as a back.

  4. this guy could be starting for the lions next week had he signed the tender they offered. instead, he rejected them an said some disparaging words. i have no sympathy. he’ll latch on somewhere, though. but i can’t imagine he’ll play as big a role as he might have in detroit.

    Didn’t realize McFadden was fragile but I guess a shoulder and turf toe is a minor inconvenience for a NFL stud like you.

    Wait, does a Jaguars fan think he can look down on other fans? How bizarre? I didn’t even know Jags fans still existed. He must have crawled out from under the tarps used to cover unsold seats in order to avoid local blackouts so the local CBS affiliate didn’t have to pay for the rights to broadcast Citizen Kane in order to avoid the dead air.

    It’s my understanding that if Florida is America’s dong, based on its location and overall crappiness, Jacksonville is pretty much America’s taint. The only thing the Jaguars have going for them is they continue to sign bad contract after bad contract in order to keep them perpetually in the cellar so that Shad “Wario” Khan can get the green light to move them to LA, thus ending the misery of teams with good fan bases constantly worrying about their team moving there if taxpayers don’t buy a new stadium.

    Mcfadden has never played a full season-I think that qualifies as fragile there bud
