It’s been the offseason of wide receivers for the Raiders. The latest addition is former Colts wideout Ryan Grant.

The 6-0, 204-pound receiver was originally a 2014 fifth round (142nd overall) draft selection, spending the first four seasons of his NFL career in Washington. Grant has appeared in 78 career games with 25 starts, compiling 119 receptions for 1,319 yards and seven touchdowns over five NFL seasons.

His best season came in 2017 in Washington where Jon’s brother Jay Gruden is the head coach. That season Grant started seven games, putting up 45 catches for 573 yards and 4 touchdowns. He was Kirk Cousins’s second leading receiver that season.

After signing a one-year deal with the Colts last season, Grant would start a career high 10 games but his numbers would come down, catching 35 receptions for 334 yards and one touchdown.

He joins a remade receiving corps which boasts new additions Antonio Brown, Tyrell Williams, and JJ Nelson along with Seth Roberts.
