Lions Free Agency: Ryan Grant Mulling Offer From Detroit

The Detroit Lions might be able to steal away a major contributor from the Green Bay Packers. Free agent running back Ryan Grant is considering an offer from Detroit. However, he still believes Green Bay is interested in bringing him back, according to ESPN Milwaukee.

Last year, Grant and James Starks split running back duties for Green Bay. Grant carried the ball 134 times for 559 yards and two touchdowns.

After back-to-back seasons of over 1,200 rushing yards for Grant in 2008 and 2009, durability has become a question for the running back. During the past two seasons he's appeared in 16 of the team's 32 regular season games.

He is also believed to have an offer from the New England Patriots.

Grant is entering his sixth season and will be 29 years old in Week 1.
