If he made half of what he is making now, then maybe... but honestly, how many actual big plays do you remember from last year?
I know that the acclaim of being 2nd team all-pro is kind of cool, but he had one 88 yard TD last year... and only 330 total yards in returns. So the other 28 returns totaled only 242 yards. In the passing game, he was overwhelmed getting only 1 TD and 36 receptions all year long.
This isn't really production that a couple dozen other guys couldn't replicate, or even improve upon. Bowden might be better... I'm certainly going to try him in training camp and find out.
Grant isn't a bad guy, he just doesn't really provide much spark. I mean, I know that the threat is there... but he rarely delivers. He has a TOTAL of 11 TDs in 5 years. Can you imagine signing a pass rusher with only 11 sacks in five years and thinking that he was going to make a real difference?
To me, Grant is a guy who constantly looks great, but actually doesn't do a whole lot.
I like the pass rusher analogy.
Those going gaga over Grant have an Al Davis like obsession w/ speed.
If he added as much value to the phins as say Az-Zahir Hakim did to the Martz era rams than keep him
That said, Grant IMO is not as valuable to the team as Jesse Davis.
