GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers reached an injury settlement with rookie tight end Colt Lyerla on Tuesday and waived him off injured reserve.

The settlement will pay Lyerla through Week 8 of the regular season, his agent Vinnie Porter said, and also allows him the opportunity to return to the NFL this season. Had he spent the entire year on injured reserve, he would have had no chance to play until 2015 but would have been able to attend meetings and other functions with the Packers.


Trying to sneak him onto the PS? Then again maybe not:

Quote:
After eight weeks, Lyerla is free to sign with any team. However, by rule, the Packers couldn’t bring back Lyerla for an additional six weeks. That would be after Week 14, making his return seem unlikely.

If I'm reading this right, the Packers pay him for half a season, then lose him anyway? Why - if he has the potential they say - would they not put him on IR, which would mean paying him for the other half of the season, but then they keep him for next year?

I'm thinking Colt and his agent made an agreement with the Packers. The Packers paying full season of IR is more than half and in exchange, Colt agrees to give the Packers for chance to sign him.

If they were interested in keeping him they would have done it differently. he's gone. Just my guess.

Might be he's not quite as perfect as some on here would believe. Again, he was not drafted by a league that is starved for talent and has very low standards for behavior. This is a league with murderers, rapists, drunk drivers, and PED abusers. I don't think his character alone contributed to his not being drafted.

Yeah, you would think if they wanted to develop him, they would have IR'd him. Injury settlement to me looks like they cut ties.

They put a guy like Rajion Neal on IR, but cut Lyerla, I don't think thats a good sign.

he was not counting against the 53, so the only reasons to release him now are.

(A) His injury is really bad

(B) His attitude/work ethic stinks

(C) He is just not good enough to waste time developing (i don't think they would bring him in the first place if true)

(D) They are trying to circumvent the PUP to bring him back later, while risking losing him to another team.

(E) His injury is not season ending, but he has not shown enough that the Packers want to have him next year, so he and his agent reached a settlement in the hopes that another team could pick him up and stash him for next year. so that he can get with acquainted new team ASAP.

I vote "E"

The kid has no character and questionable talent at best.
Cut the losses and let him go.

I think because they're following NFL rules...

I think by rule they could IR the whole season if he was serious injured enough and/or if he and his agent are okay with it... sounds like he and his agent want him to be free because they think he can still make a roster this year and play this year (after he heals up half the season).

So the team and the agent have to come together and agree on some sort of settlement package... and they agreed at 8 weeks it sounds like.

I tend to agree with you, although I'd consider B a possibility too.

I just hope he doesn't end up on some other team as an NFL success that we should have had.

Appears he has his hops back now. I would like the Packers to bring him back again for a try out.

I liked the idea last year, this year its a no go. Didn't he get arrested immediately following his release last year?

That video's from '13.

They could take a look at him, but he's been out of footbal for what, 2-3 years? Not to mention he's apparently crazy.
