grease on my brake caliper

i notice today after riding to work there was grease spun up to the swing arm and up under the seat and on the number plate. It was a very small amount and it looked like it was coming from the caliper.. So i pulled the caliper and cleaned it up . We all know grease wouldn't leak from the caliper so after searching the web all i could come up with is a wheel bearing that went bad. I pulled the wheel off and inspected the bearing area and it did not seem to look at all like a bearing was blown . No extra grease or any type of hang up or loose feeling to anything.. Know idea were it came from ,, maybe there was a little glob that came lose and flug around. Any feed back would be nice

Chain lube? I had similar "grease balls" from chain lube build up around the front sprocket until I switched to a dry teflon lube.
