NFL free agency news: Raiders continue to revamp receiving corps

The Raiders continue to add wide receivers.

Oakland has signed free agent Ryan Grant, the team announced Wednesday. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Grant spent last season with the Colts, where he caught 35 passes for 334 yards and a touchdown over 14 games.

The 28-year-old wideout was originally selected by the Redskins out of Tulane in the fifth round of the 2014 draft. He tallied 985 receiving yards and six scores over four seasons in Washington before he inked a deal with Indianapolis in March 2018.

Before he joined the Colts, Grant had agreed to four-year, $29 million deal with the Ravens. But, that contract was voided after he failed a physical because of an ankle issue.

The Raiders struggled in 2018 and finished with a 4-12 record but they’ve completely rebuilt their offense this offseason. They traded for disgruntled Steelers receiver Antonio Brown and signed wideout Tyrell Williams, along with offensive lineman Trent Brown.

“It was a tough year,” coach Jon Gruden told NFL Network recently. “No doubt. For the fans, for the players, for the coaches and for me. But necessary. It was something we had to get through and we got through and we’re excited about the future.

“We’re on schedule. We had a great offseason. … We’ve established a really good work ethic in our building. Our guys know how to prepare, how to practice and we’ve got a good environment.”

The Raiders will have three first-round picks in the NFL Draft later this month.
