According to Adam Caplan of TheSidelineView.com, the Green Bay Packers have restructured the contract of running back Ryan Grant, cutting his base salary from $3.5 million to $2.5 million.
“Grant, who is on the final year of his contract, had a $1 million roster bonus due on the 15th day of the new league year on his previous deal plus $750,000 in total per game roster bonuses ($46,875/game),” writes Caplan. “Grant has the same exact amount ($1.75 million) in bonuses due in the new contract, but it’s not known if the bonus structure is the same or if the roster bonus has been paid or if the date has been pushed back.”
With the suggestion that Grant could be cut in favor of keeping fellow running back Dimitri Nance by Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, I defer to Sigmund Bloom of FootballGuys.com in trying to apply meaning to the news.
Bloom asked, in essence, “Does that make it more or less likely that Grant would get cut?”
