    But Packers may reward halfback with longer deal

    Ryan Grant was one of the best bargains in the NFL this season.

    The Green Bay Packers' halfback, picked up just before the start of the regular season in a trade for a sixth-round draft pick, gained 1,189 yards and averaged 5.4 yards per carry in the final 12 games of the season (playoffs included), and he did it while making the minimum salary for a first-year player of $310,000....

    His agent is pushing for a long term deal already, but hopefully they can agree to bump his two years of exclusive rights term into a fair contract for both. Kid seems very level headed so hopefully let him play another year or so at a that level then lock him up long term to a sizeable deal.

    He has work to do in the recieving department and blocking but a good north south runner.

    Thanks.

    He's a good fit for the zone blocking that the Packers do

    I think Brandon Jackson will be better then him though

    He needs to bulk up a bit, work on his blocking and receiving
