Ryan Grant agrees to deal with Packers

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers agreed to terms with running back Ryan Grant on Saturday, allowing one of last season's surprise breakout stars to report to training camp as early as Sunday.

Agent Alan Herman said Grant has agreed to a four-year deal that could be worth up to $30 million, with much of the money coming in performance-based escalators.

Grant will make $4.25 million this season.

Grant is an exclusive-rights free agent but refused to sign his tender offer from the team in hopes of working out a long-term deal.

He did not report to camp earlier this week, and talks between the two sides had stalled until late in the week.

Grant and Herman plan to be in Green Bay on Sunday to review and sign the contract.

The completion of Grant's deal was reported by foxsports.com earlier Saturday.
