I've been thinking about our injuries at WR, and noticed Gurley was signed to SD's PS last week. Maybe we should raid that sucker and bring him back just for insurance purposes. Jennings coming back is no sure thing. What if Jordy's hammy flares? I know I would feel a lot better having that kid back in the Green & Gold. What do you guys think?

Not sure, but I think for The Packers to sign him from SD's PS, he must be put on The 53 man roster.

Who is there to drop?

Now if one of the wr's goes on IR, Gurley would probably be the best option to be able to step in.

I think Gurley was cut by Packers, Vikings, Raiders and Buccaneers all with in a 3 month time span for a reason.... I don't have a clue what they reason is... but most guys don't seem to be cut that fast...

Also which player would you suggest cutting to put Gurley on the 53 man roster?

Only way we're getting another WR is if any of the other 4 get hurt.. We didn't keep 6 WRs and 4 TEs for nothin'.

Lot of time these PS cuts are made because a need for another position comes up due to injury or such.

You can look at it the other way, Gurley has shown promise and teams have signed him knowing if needed he would be able to help out.

I believe Tori Gurley will get his chance with an NFL team, and hope he makes the best of it.

Right now The Packers just don't have room for him, maybe if he is released from SD Ted might bring him back.

True that does happen sometimes.... but what's even more true is,

Most of time if they think a player is worth keeping around, they keep the player around.

good idea but with none of the WR on the IR they don't need him. even if they do sign him he would most likely be on the bottom of the depth chart and they wouldn't have him on the field much.

Its fishy to me that the guy was cut from 4 teams in a very short period of time. I think with the WR the Packers have, they should be able to use the "next man up". With a quarterback like Rodgers, he can make any receiver we have on our roster look better than they truly are. When I say that, I am referring to bottom players such as Boykin or any other WR that we would take up from the PS.
