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.
Just a picture. No hint—

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.
