Grant was working as the team's No. 2 wideout during Wednesday's OTAs, Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports.
Chester Rogers was initially considered the favorite to earn the No. 2 role opposite T.Y. Hilton, but it appears Grant may have moved ahead of him in the pecking order. There is still a lot of time before the regular season begins and the Colts have a number of players to get a look at during the preseason, but Grant has put himself in a good position for reps in the early going.
Grant had his four-year, $29 million contract with the Ravens voided by a failed physical, though many have speculated that Baltimore simply had buyer's remorse and preferred to sign a more proven player in Michael Crabtree. The 2014 fifth-round pick enjoyed a breakout of sorts in Washington last season, catching 45 of 65 targets for 573 yards (8.8 YPT) and four scores, besting his reception, yardage and touchdown totals from the previous three years combined. Grant did hurt his ankle in Week 14, but he's yet to miss a game since entering the league. He profiles as the likely No. 2 wideout for the receiver-needy Colts, though other moves in free agency and/or the draft could change that outlook before Week 1. Assuming Andrew Luck (shoulder) is healthy, Grant will be in a good situation for a player looking to establish his value before hitting the open market again next offseason. He passed his end-of-season physical with the Redskins and has already passed a physical for the Colts.
Grant (ankle) is reportedly nearing a deal with the Colts, according to Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News.
Grant previously had a deal with the Ravens that was voided when he didn't pass a physical with the team, but the Colts subsequently determined the 27-year-old's ankle issue isn't a significant concern. As a result, Grant is poised to join a wideout corps that could really use him, following the free agent departure of Donte Moncrief. T.Y. Hilton remains atop the depth chart on that front and if Grant indeed heads to Indy, opportunity knocks for him in an offense set to be manned by a (presumably) healthy Andrew Luck (shoulder). In such a scenario, it's not hard to imagine Grant eclipsing his 2017 career highs of 45 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns.
Grant (ankle) passed a physical during his visit with the Colts on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Grant agreed to a four-year, $29 million contract with the Ravens earlier this week, but the deal was voided due to a failed physical. The 27-year-old is leaving Indianapolis without a contract, but the team passing him on the physical remains a good sign for his future prospects, as the ankle injury doesn't appear to be a significant concern for each team. Next up for Grant is a visit to the Raiders, which could be looking to add some depth behind Amari Cooper and new addition Jordy Nelson.
Grant's agent Rocky Arceneaux said Friday that the wideout would be able to play in an NFL game "tomorrow" even though the Ravens nullified his contract Thursday after examining his ankle, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Ravens agreed to sign Grant on a four-year, $29 million contract that included $14 million guaranteed, but the team backed out after examining his ankle during a physical, with general manager Ozzie Newsome saying they consulted "many doctors around the country", per Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun reports. Arceneaux disagrees with the assessment, noting that Grant has been fine to work out and run routes during the offseason and already has been cleared by renowned foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson, per Schefter. The 27-year-old wideout injured his ankle Week 14 last season, but didn't miss any games and didn't suffer a noteworthy downturn in production. He's now set to visit with the Colts, another team in desperate need of help at wide receiver. There's little chance of Grant matching the initial contract, which stood out as one of the overpays in the opening days of free agency.
