this year than last year George Blanda Jersey , but he has found his new team, in Oakland.The Raiders have signed Grant, a wide receiver who spent last year in Indianapolis, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.Last year Grant signed a four-year, $29 million contract with the Ravens, a contract that was immediately met with derision because Grant’s career up to that point — four years as a backup in Washington — wouldn’t seem to justify that kind of contract. Then the contract was voided when the Ravens announced that Grant had failed his physical because of an ankle injury.After that Grant couldn’t find anything close to that kind of market Jim Plunkett Jersey , and he ended up signing a one-year, $5 million deal. He finished the season with 35 catches for 334 yards and one touchdown.Michael Gehlken of the reports that Grant can earn a maximum of $2.5 million this season from the Raiders, and only if he hits incentives. Suffice to say he’s never going to get back the money he missed out on in Baltimore. In Oakland he joins a receiving corps that includes three other newcomers: Antonio, Tyrell Williams and JJ Nelson. We’ve seen several quarterbacks skilled at running with the ball enter the NFL in recent years, but Derek Carr has not been on the list.Carr has run 148 times for 413 yards over the course of his career, but head coach Jon Gruden thinks that’s an area where the quarterback can make some strides. Gruden has instructed defensive backs to jump some routes during practice in order to force Carr to consider making plays with his feet rather than his arm.“Derek is a lot more athletic than people think Charles Woodson Jersey ,” Gruden said, via the . “Hopefully we can get some more scramble, second-reaction offense.”Carr said the Raiders gave up too many sacks last year, but “they weren’t all on the offensive line” and that he feels able to move through his progressions more quickly now that he’s in the same offense for a second season. After spending the offseason restocking the wide receiver group, we’d guess that running the ball will remain a last resort for the quarterback once the team moves beyond the practice field.
