Grant was cut by the Raiders in September after two games in which he caught four passes for 14 yards. He played in 14 games for Indianapolis last year, catching 35 passes for 334 yards and one touchdown. The Tulane product spent his first four years in the league in Washington where he had 84 catches for 985 yards and six scores.
Green Bay’s wide receiver group is young and inexperienced, especially with injuries sidelining Davante Adams (toe) and Geronimo Allison (head, chest).
Also, the team has, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, designated rookie tight end Jace Sternberger as one of the two guys they can bring off of injured reserve.
Also, the Packers have declared tight end Jace Sternberger designed to return off IR., per a source. He had an ankle injury and now is one of two guys off IR that can return this year.
