Sounds like we got a 6th round for him.

Tremon Smith, step up to return some kicks!

Is Shepherd going to take over the returns? I don't know.

Here's a little about him out of Forbes a month ago.

Quote:
Cobb had everything you’d dream of when designing the ideal slot receiver.

These days, Williams wonders if he’s watching Cobb 2.0 when he looks at rookie Darrius Shepherd.

Shepherd, an undrafted free agent from North Dakota State, has been one of the stars of the Green Bay Packers’ training camp. Shepherd has turned heads with his sensational play from the slot, excelling on a daily basis against anyone and everyone the Packers have thrown at him.

“He is the one receiver we have who has the body of a natural slot,” Williams told Conley Media of Shepherd. “He has the quickness and is built specifically for that position. He is obviously showing up on the field every day and I think every team needs a really good slot, for sure.”

Many of Shepherd’s measurable compare favorably to Cobb’s eight years earlier.

Shepherd is 5-foot-11, 186 pounds. Cobb was 5-10, 191. Shepherd’s vertical jump was 35.5 inches, which was two inches better than Cobb’s. Cobb’s time in the three-cone drill was 7.08, which was slightly better than Shepherd’s (7.13).

Cobb’s 40-yard dash time (4.46), though, was substantially better than Shepherd’s (4.57)

Tremon Smith is 5-10 200 4.43 40 (I saw another site that listed him at 4.30)

So he sucks for the last few years & we stick with him. Finally this year he shows some flashes of something good. And we kick him to the curb for a little bit of nothing. If nothing else, he’s a sure handed punt returner. That’s more valuable than you think. I don’t get it.

Tyreek Hill said Smith was the fastest guy on the Chiefs.

He was injured his rookie year, in 2017 he was a top 5 return guy, again in 2018 he was injured.
He never sucked, he just wasn't healthy.

This is just Gutey getting a sure 6th rnd pick in 2020 instead of waiting for Davis to hit FA next year and maybe getting nothing for him as a comp in 2021.

No coincidence that Davis was a,TT draft pick.
Or is there?🤔🤔🤔🤔

Davis showed a little something this year but to call him sure handed is a stretch , the guy has fumbled quite a bit over the past few yrs !!

He had 2 fumbles in 2016 as a rookie.
That's it.
He played in 11 games in 2016
15 games in 2017
0 games in 2018.
Again staying healthy has been his downfall so far.
The Packers will be fine with Smith or Shepard.

Maybe Davis will stay healthy and find a home in Vegas.

Sure handed punt returner. Meaning I don’t recall seeing him drop a punt. That’s 99% of being a good punt returner in my opinion.

It seems weird that they'd trade Davis after it looked like he finally found a niche on offense thanks to LaFluers scheme (jet sweeps and what not) and his role on STs.

I agree with you. There’s definitely been some questionable moves recently in my opinion. Hopefully they all work out.

How many offensive snaps has he taken this season? 23.

19 in week 1 then a huge drop to 4 in week 2.

I know. I just posted what I saw on a website. Can't say if it's accurate or not.

Before the preseason game against the Raiders many thought that Davis was going to get cut. I am thinking that getting a 6th rounder for him when he only has 1 year left on his contract and was likely not going to be in our long term plans is a pretty good move on Gute's part.

Items:
  • The guy has one reception.
  • To me, the guy looks shaky catching punts
  • Can't block, and
  • was hurt often.
So, what's the big deal?

Considering, as other poster have mentioned, he was likely to get cut and numerous teams are looking for WR talent, I think it was a good time to cut bait and get something for him.

Further, many posters have been calling for more playing time for Kumerow and perhaps even Lazard, let's do it.

In the end I think it comes down to do you want your 6th WR be your return man or do you want your 6th cb ?

You can never have enough Db's these days.

You can get bye with 4 ir 5 receivers.

Well, my first prediction came true: Trevor Davis won't be on the Packers roster next year. I had a pretty strong feeling he wouldn't even make it through the year with Green Bay. Now it remains to be seen if my second prediction comes true: that he won't be on any NFL roster next year.

As far as I'm concerned, good riddance. He had contributed next to nothing on offense to this point, and he was simply awful on special teams this year.

Don't forget an idiotic no-fair-catch last week where he got absolutely pummeled (at least he held onto the ball), followed by a very late fair catch, followed by blocking after a fair catch getting flagged.

gbguy20 (10-Oct) : think of it this way. give up a 50k job for the potential to earn 500k if they manage to last just a year on a roster. they come out ahead.
gbguy20 (10-Oct) : lots of things don't give up on their dream until forced to. the reward outweighs tge risk to a certain point in their ife
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : I think for me it would depend on what kind of civilian job I'd managed to secure in the interim. No use screwing up a good thing for a pie-in-the-sky shot at a dream.
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : If a team that had previously cut you brought you in for a workout, would you be open to signing with the practice squad?
KRK (9-Oct) : I would like to see either/or Pennel or Williams. Lancaster and Lowry have been disappointing IMO
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : PFF has Chandon Sullivan and Will Redmond with highest defensive grades
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : Something like that.
buckeyepackfan (9-Oct) : CM3 out till week 10 with broken jaw.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Packers worked out Packers: Rico Gathers, Mike Pennel, Sly Williams
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : A team, dunno. A room, very easily. They interviewed him. lol
beast (8-Oct) : But how well did the Packers know LaFleur's command of a team and room before hiring him? (We'll never know)
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : hhaha great stat
Mucky Tundra (8-Oct) : Christian McCaffrey has 866 yards from scrimmage. The New York Jets have 718
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : @RobDemovsky Most think he was hired for his offensive philosophies and schemes, but perhaps Matt LaFleur’s command of a team and room went underrated.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : seahawks +2 vs browns. Slam it while you can!
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : just a thought. he fumbled at the one yard line this weekend and now they traded for another wr. figure maybe they're switching him out.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Really? Raiders gonna cut Davis??
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : turns out this guy is just a tool
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : apparently, baker mayfield refused to shake hands with the 49ers during the coin toss. they made him pay for it all night.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : maybe the raiders are cutting tdavis after his fumble
KRK (8-Oct) : 49ers are frigging terrific. Both lines are awesome
Nonstopdrivel (8-Oct) : I hope it was one damn sexy pic.
