Surprise of the offseason!

Edit: If someone could fix the poorly worded thread title, and maybe embed a tweet or something, that would be great.

I hope this can be a positive step for him getting back to football.

Great news.

Another step for him as he moves on with his life.

The Packers obviously thinks he has the talent to play in The NFL, his biggest hurdle will be to stay focused on football.
Being able to stay focused and add some quality depth to the line would be good enough for me

This is like giving The Packers 11 picks this year.

Great for this young man. The experience will be great for him, whether or not he makes the team. A big step in moving on with his life.

As you requested. Would you prefer the tweet to be on your post?

Is this kind of like getting an extra 5th round draft pick selection for this season? I'm glad he's back, and I kinda hope he's left alone on why he wasn't around last season. Dunno, maybe it'd be good to talk about it? Either way, just glad he's at a point where he can resume his career.

Just for giggles from a 2017 prospect report:

Washington State’s Cole Madison is played this past year at right tackle, but could find more success moving inside at the next level.

Cole Madison is a solid all-around offensive line prospect. He features average size with good arm length. However, he is a little on the short size for an offensive tackle prospect. This isn’t a major concern, but something that could push him inside.

Madison does a good job playing with leverage and balance. He is committed to keeping his pads down with a wide base. This helps him change direction and anchor after contact.

In pass protection, he fights to gain inside hand placement and get his arms extended. This keeps defenders off his frame and provides space. Madison’s wide base gives him balance and helps his shuffle.

However, he isn’t a very fluid athlete and will be beat around the edge at times. The key for him to hold up in space is quickly getting into position and using his arm length to engage. He could stand to add more strength which would improve is latching skills.

Washington State’s quick hitting offensive attack hasn’t given Madison much experience pass protecting for extended periods of time. He will need to adjust his plan of attack in the NFL.

Mike Leach’s offense also doesn’t provide offensive linemen a chance to fire off the ball and open running lanes. It’s all about spacing which asks the blockers to use angles and position. However, Madison does show a nasty streak and will keep his legs driving once engaged.

Madison has a chance to stick at right tackle at the next level. However, his lack of ideal height and fluidity are cause for concern. It’s possible that his best fit in the NFL will be a guard with a team that looks for more athletic interior blockers.

There’s enough talent here for Madison to find a place and stick on a roster.

For Cole Madison to return to football with the Packers is great. I wish him and the Packers all the best of success.

That said, Madison will have to overcome the trash talk that he will face against opposing teams and on the practice field as well. No advantage, large or small, is ever overlooked in the predatory world that is the NFL. They will needle and prod him to get him to loose his cool. He can get past it and move on, but he will have to face the dragon.
