I would not mind seeing Driver signed for another Super Bowl run! Jones & Cobb going down would make this a pretty good move right now. Seamless.

Add another younger talent if need be, but get Driver back in the fold. I bet he can still do it.

The guy is done. (not bashing you) But people should get over it.

I bet they sign Charles Johnson, or a street free agent.

I think there are much better options out there than Donald Driver. Forget what he has done in the past, that doesn't matter anymore in terms of helping this team presently. Driver would offer very little to this football team right now. I'd prefer going after someone that might have a CHANCE to stick around next season if they play well down the stretch.

Johnson got snatched by the Browns. But I think we still have Kevin Dorsey on the PS.

Tori Gurley's on the Brown's PS, we could snatch him.

But if Cobb is out, we're gonna need a starter.

Rodgers knows Driver. DD also knows the system, inside and out. I bet he could still play at a high level. Wouldn't mind seeing both Guhrley and Driver back if Jones and Cobby are out.

Driver hasn't played at a "high level" in years. And he's only older now.

It was reported Dorsy got IRed/released.

Normally that means the team and the player work out an injury settlement espeically if it's a smaller injury like Borsy injury seemed to be.

But WR Kevin Dorsey and Sederrik Cunningham, Sederrik are still sitting there on the Packers IR. So maybe there is some sort of plan to keep them all year and sign them for next years training camp.

On the practice squad the Packers have

3 OL (one OT, one OG and one C)
1 CB
1 QB
1 open space
TE Jake Stoneburner
WR Myles White

Dorsey is on IR

Myles white is on our PS though. Don't know how much he'd contribute

Mike McCarthy and Edgar Bennett know the system inside and out too but we're not going to play them because of their physical limitations, that's why D.D. was let go, and why no other team showed interest.



thanks Post received 2 applause.

According to Yahoo Fantasy Football, Ross is on Detroit.

I wouldn't mind seeing Driver given a try - what could it hurt? Was he horrible his last season? Or just put on the shelf and ignored? I doubt anybody in here knows, but Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson probably do, so that will determine it.

I like the idea somebody said of bringing in both Driver and Gurley, but that may not be possible number-wise if neither Jones or Cobb are hurt enough to go on IR, as thankfully looks to be the case.

Hopefully, we won't have to add any WRs, with the healthy returns of Jones & Cobb.

My asking about Driver was simply for his knowledge of the system. He was pretty much shelved last year on his way to retirement kept only as an insurance policy. It was looking like we might have needed that yesterday with both guys going down.

If they need another WR they will probably call one up from the PS. I liked Myles White in Preseason.
