It started with a Tweet from Ian Rappaport:

The story continued via Twitter:

Then it became a fully reported news story:

Wide receiver Ryan Grant is no longer in the Ravens’ plans.

According to multiple reports, the former Redskins’ wide receiver failed his physical Thursday and he will no longer sign the four-year, $29 million deal he agreed to with Baltimore.

Grant has never missed a game in his four-year career, but an issue with his ankle in his physical with the team was enough for the Ravens to back out of the deal.

The 27-year-old caught 84 passes for 985 yards in four years with the Redskins.

Baltimore went on to sign another wide receiver, John Brown, to a one-year deal worth $5 million Thursday, but they still have a void among their wideouts.

According to ESPN, Baltimore is now expected to pursue Michael Crabtree who was released by the Raiders Thursday.

Now Rap Sheet is back with a report that the Ravens are moving on to Michael Crabtree:

This is a mess for Ryan Grant, who thought he had a sweet 4 year, $29m contract lined up, only to learn that he’s injured and back on the free agent market.

Reports say that the Ravens failed him on the physical because of an ankle injury that Grant suffered in the final game of the season.

Is it possible that Ryan Grant could end up back with the Redskins in 2018?
