The long-time Packer returns in an effort to claim his old job back. On Family Night, the Green Bay Packers’ special teams unit went through a fairly rough night. Kicker Mason Crosby made just five of eleven field goal attempts, some of which were attributable — at least in part — to bad snaps by undrafted rookie long-snapper Derek Hart. Crosby had to abort another attempt in practice this week due to a high snap that Justin Vogel could not bring in.
Rob Demovsky said:
The Packers are keeping Hart -- for now -- but as long as there is no dropoff in Goode's performance, it's likely he will be the opening-day snapper for the 10th straight season. They did not have to release Hart or anyone else to make room for Goode because they had been one short of the 90-man training camp roster limit since they released defensive tackle Letroy Guion last week.
...
Goode had a workout last week with the New York Jets, which perhaps prompted Thompson to make the move he did Saturday.


I speculate that the Packers plan was to try to replace Goode with someone younger that just as goode (pun), and if they couldn't find someone, then resign Goode a day or two after the final 53 man roster, like they did last year... which allows them to hold an extra player a day or two longer, and hopefully help sneak them to the PS.

But Goode didn't want to wait and had the try-out with the Jets and the Packers knew that so far Hart wasn't as goode as Goode... so they're protecting themselves and locking him up.

I'm still surprised that last year Crosby claimed he's NEVER seen Goode have a bad snap, not even in practice. If true, that's EXTREMELY impressive consistency! ... and not good, but d@mn GOODE!

They just lost Rob Davis from the front office too. Dude has a whole road ahead of him.

I'll do a search but where did Davis go. I always liked him even though I had no idea who he was. Actually I knew who he was but what I meant was "who is Rob Davis" I think you know what I mean.

Good news about Goode. LS could be the most under appreciated position on the team and IMO its not the place to try to save a few bucks on the cap because it likely isn't going to be much of a savings. I'm not sure how many teams actually employ one but I would guess they are always looking to improve. A couple of years back when the Bears long snapper of 15 years (maybe not quite 15 but it was a lot) even my most die hard Bears fans friends had no idea who he was. That's what happens when you get a good one, you keep him and don't worry about the position for a decade or more. I'm not saying don't try others out but don't cut your stalwart until you are sure the new guy works out. Had Goode signed with the jets we could have been screwed. Still might be but our prospects are Gooder now.

THere was some situation in he front office, Davis just packed it in, not sure what it was. I think he's out of football now.

Do you have an inside source or where is this info coming from?

Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy said. "We hated to lose Rob, but [it is] a special opportunity for him."

It's not on that link, but I remember another quote where Murphy something to the effect that he didn't think it was his place to announce the opportunity, so he'll let Davis do it, if he so chooses.

To save like what, $50,000? I can't imagine his salary was so much that it would be worth it to roll the dice and sign some unproven rookie.

No, I think it was more about the roster spot than the salary/money.

That way they got
1) an extra guy in training camp, and
2) An extra spot for play with for the 53 cut down, just like last year when their 53 man cutdown had zero LS on the roster... which allowed them to keep CB Makinton Dorleant on the cut down to the 53 man roster, which allowed Dorleant to be eligible for the designated to return list!

If he's not healthy for the start of the season, the Packers might be planning to do the exalt same thing for DT Montravius Adams... especially since NFL doubled it to two players allowed to return.

Of course Geronimo Allison's one game suspension, still allows for them to do that... but Goode would of allowed them to have a second spot to try to hold onto their top PS guy for a extra day and they to sneak them over to the PS late, after hopefully all the other rosters are set.

Just checked.  It's $150,000 difference.

Dude gets pushed back after the snap and can't get downfield to cover kicks. But he does get the snap perfect everytime and even can make the laces line up however the kicker wants them.

If they go wih Goode, Janis has a better shot to make the team, because they'll need gunners. Any word on Demetri Goodson?

Seems like you're taking that straight from Michael Rodney's article... But think about something, the NFL doesn't allow people to straight up rush LSer, so why is the LS getting pushed back? ... because it's not so much being pushed back as the Punt OL seems to be taught to hop back a bit and tighten up and help each other, more than they're being pushed straight back. But the LS is the furthest out, so he has drop back more than the others to make the line even. So yes Goode goes backwards at first... but it seems to be by play design.

You can really see it at 4:16 of this video, where the Punt OL is retreating back before the rush even gets to them.

It's been commented on in a number of podcasts as well. Goode doesn't get downfield very well, and he's 32 now. It's one of those things where they'll try to replace him every year. If they new guy can get the ball delivered, we can cut Janis for someone who can actually contribute.
