good move by the Geeee Men.


Although I like Grant. He played HS ball in my area. But he was on the bubble and would have been the 4th or 5th RB if he made it. so its good to get a pick.

I've liked him so far, always around the ball on special teams.

What do you want to know?

I think you guys got a solid player and is worth a 5th-7th round pick.

he's a more of straight line runner, has above average size, explodes through the line, and has a great work ethic and is a good guy to have around.

He definitely will do very well on special teams and as a 3rd RB I can see him doing well.

Who the hell is this guy? I'm hoping the draft pick is a 7th. Great move by the Giants though.

Wow, trading a draft pick for a guy who will never play.

and you know this because?? let me guess you didnt think robert thomas 2 years ago or vernand morency last year would play either? this is the 1st time TT has traded a draft pick for a player. a draft pick that all GB fans know he values GREATLY! i am sure he saw something in him that he really liked. i have a feeling he will be our #3 or #4 this year, but then next year with morency and herron possibly gone, he could serve as our #2.

Another undisclosed draft pick...

Just freaking disclose it! What's the secret?

As for Grant, I remember watching him at Notre Dame. He's got an attitude when he plays, but he's not overly talented. I wonder what the Packers have in mind for him?

You think Robert Thomas was a good pickup? And yes I thought Robert Thomas would play he was brought here to be a starter.

Not a big deal, I thought they might want to keep him with Droughns moving to FB.

They have a Derrick Ward who is a similar player to Jacons and Droughns. Plus, Ahmad Bradshaw has had a great preseason and rightfully earned a spot.

I was annoyed by the trade at first, but as the article mentions, the pick is conditional. That way, if someone better comes along through the cuts, the Pack can cut this guy and not lose anything.
