AADP... great rebuttal post.. and it very well might get brought into play on the numbers game... but we have Harrell on the PUP already and KGB very well might land there as well..

My wager is that we start the year light on the Dline in terms of numbers and keep a couple skilled players as extras.. week 6 rolls around.. someone or two will land on the IR with an injury protecting players of interest that won't make it through waivers to the PS.

We will see.. Ted Thompson and company have had some weird roster configurations to start the year at times.. I am sure this one will be no different. :lol:

So true.

The thing that worries me is the D-line is not too strong going into the season, and I believe McCarthy/TT believe the games are won and lost in the trenches. That sounds pretty stupid considering we've had a lot of shuffling on the inside of the o-line, but I still think McCarthy and Ted live by this philosophy.

Taking that into account, and the fact that Pickett will be seeing his first action against the Vikes, I think (or perhaps prefer?) the Packers play it safe and keep an extra DT on the roster, even if it is Muir or Malone.

If I remember correctly, a couple of years ago the Packers had a verbal agreement with a player that they'd resign him after they released him in the final cuts. That was done so they had time to trade FB Nick Luchey I think.

Perhaps that's the route the Packers can take here too? They have a wink-wink/nudge-nudge agreement with Lumpkin that he'll be back in a couple of weeks once the DT rotation becomes more solid....?

Considering Lumpkin said the Packers were the only team to show interest in signing him, he might do this as a show of his gratitude for the Packers making the only serious offer to sign him after the draft...

I'd hate to see Lumpy not here. He has shown he WANTS to play, and is a tough son of a gun. Guys like that don't grow on trees.

Um...Cheesey...

people don't grow on trees period. They get delivered by storks.

Anyways, I'm hoping nobody snags Lumpy from our PS, which he'll probably end up. I like the kid, but think Herron's underrated and don't want to lose him either.
