The Green Bay Packers have restructured the contract of veteran RB Ryan Grant’s contract, thesidelineview.com has learned.
Grant, who was to earn $3.5 million in base salary for 2011, had his base salary cut to $2.5 million earlier this month, a source confirmed.
UPDATE: Grant’s entire base salary is guaranteed for cap, skill and injury, another source confirmed. Grant’s $1 million roster bonus was paid earlier this month and he can earn an additional $1.8 million in incentives. As was the case in the previous deal, he has $750,000 in total per game roster bonuses ($46,875/game).
Grant’s salary cap number has been trimmed from $5.65 million to roughly $3.87 million.
With Grant’s base salary fully guaranteed, he will certainly be on the roster this season and will almost certainly still start.
