No chance

It would cost 2m to cut him and he's the only S on the team with actual game experience at that position. He had a down year but he had 2 pretty good years before that. Way too premature to talk about cutting the guy.


I agree with Steve. Our safeties sucked last year so you are going to cut the one guy with decent game experience at the position and who has had decent years at the position in the past in favor of a rookie and a 2nd year man who hasn't played the position before. If Hyde and Dix beat out Burnett and they end up being the two best safeties then by all means start them over Burnett but to suggest cutting him is just plan silly. You need more than just 2 starters and if Burnett is your man off the bench I think that says something positive for your depth at the position.

Burnett's position coach has said he worries too much about covering other peoples mistakes instead of his own position responsibilities. In other words, he's the opposite of A.J. Hawk who you tell him to be at this spot at this time, you know he is going to be there.


FS means Fragile Safety.
Is safety Morgan Burnett OK? He missed lot of practice.
McCarthy: I was told he tweaked his ankle.


Isn't that exactly what you want a Safety to do? I mean if he doesn't do it, who will?

In addition to what has been said, when is depth not critical during a season. What happened at qb last year?

Morgan Burnett has not done a whole lot during today's padded practice. Certainly he is physically limited.

What if it is a message though? What if Micah Hyde and Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix form a better tandem than Burnett with either? What do the Packers do with Burnett? Release him? Trade him? Drop him down the depth chart?



Burnett was limited today because he tweaked an ankle. Let's not start throwing him under the bus just quite yet.

Rodgers didn't throw it that well today in practice. Maybe he's losing it.

Lord have mercy.

Exactly. He tweaked his ankle. He'll be fine. Why if someone gets nicked up do we already start talking about cutting him. Way too knee jerk here.

lol the first line clearly states that "Certainly he is physically limited."

No, Burnett won't be released. That is just silly talk, but who's to say he couldn't be moved via trade? We lack the depth for a trade so that makes it unlikely.

The remark about which TANDEM makes the Packers better is something we should be keying on in this topic, I think.

What if lets say ...

Burnett + Hyde = 30
Burnett + Clinton-Dix = 40
Clinton-Dix + Hyde = 70


Obviously, you start the best TANDEM, right?

I've read that ALL THREE may be used in some packages, so even the tandem argument doesn't really apply.

even if Burnett was significantly hurt/under performing we're left with Banjo and Richardson for depth. The Packers will hire Jerry Jones to be GM before they cut/trade Burnett this year.

Even when he's available, he's not that good. And now he's not even able to practice.

They have already shown the packages where Hyde moves to CB in certain Nickel and Dime situations. I don't see Burnett being cut before this season plays out unless we get some lopsided trade in our favor, and I don't see why any suitors would come calling for Burnett at this point. I want to see this play out with all three playing this season.

The guy on the bench is always better than the guy on the field.
