Ryan Grant Tweets A Picture Of A Jaguar

The Jacksonville Jaguars have quite a few solid running backs on their roster as Rashad Jennings is slated to be the back up with Maurice Jones-Drew holding out, but could they be in the market to add another player at that position? I tend to think not, but a recent Tweet by former Green Bay Packers running back and free agent Ryan Grant was a bit odd.

I don't necessarily think the Jaguars are planning to sign Grant. If Jones-Drew is indeed set on taking his holdout into the regular season, it would make sense for the Jaguars to sign another capable back to backup Jennings and Grant would seem like a nice fit, if he's healthy. The five-year veteran has garned little interest, but is a former 1,200 yard rusher with the Packers.

Update: But of course, Grant tweets nine hours later it was just a picture. Mark Long of the AP also confirmed there is no real interest on the Jaguars end.
