Free Agency

  • New Colts WR Ryan Grant said of the Ravens’ decision to fail him on a physical: “If there was an issue with my ankle, I wouldn’t have passed the physical with the Colts and the Raiders. I can’t control what (the Ravens) did. I can’t control their assessment of my ankle. I’ve gone to other places. I’ve seen multiple doctors and I’ve passed physicals so that should pretty much speak for itself.” (Jamison Hensley)
  • Before signing with the Saints, veteran CB Patrick Robinson said three other teams were pursuing him. Robinson added that he didn’t want to leave the Eagles, but “it just made more sense for me to come here.” (Josh Katzenstein)
