There are arguably eight defensive linemen worth keeping on the Packers roster this season, but can they really afford to keep both Jolly and Boyd around?



Quote:
But it’s extremely difficult to see the Packers keep any more than seven defensive linemen on their roster this season, and even seven would seem to be pushing the limit for a team that––more often than not––utilizes only two defensive linemen on the field at any one time.

Green Bay would appear to have six defensive linemen that are near locks for roster spots. First round draft choice Datone Jones is obviously one of them. Veterans B.J. Raji and Ryan Pickett are also set in stone.

Beyond the top three, C.J. Wilson, Mike Neal and Mike Daniels are all good bets to be part of the defensive line rotation. That leaves Jolly and Boyd competing for a seventh spot on the Packers defensive line.

Jolly makes the team and Boyd the PS. Whether they can KEEP Boyd is another matter.

Imo it's Wilson vs Boyd. I have a hard time seeing us cutting Jolly by the way he's been playing.

I would not be surprised to see Neal cut. We keep both Jolly and Boyd. Neal was an experiment that just is not panning out IMO. He is the most expendable of our DL group listed there. We keep 7.

This could be more possible than people realize.

Hard to say what the coaches are thinking, but a number of people in the know have suggested it.

I don't see Neal getting cut unless he gets injured. He's still a decent DL pass rusher which we need and they've got him working with the 2s at OLB. I can't really say he's looked worse than Moses and Palmer so I see him working with the 2s there as legit.

Heck I would rather have Neal as a back up OLB and cut Moses and/or Palmer than cut Boyd, Jolly, or Wilson.

That's entirely possible. Maybe they are really serious about Neal at LB and give him 6-8 games or so to work into a role there. I just wonder about his lower weight and what that may do to his effectiveness on the DL. I also wonder if the talent we have added on both the DL and at LB may be eclipsing that of Neal, making him a potential odd man out.

I've got nothing against him other than his rather low production and low availability since being drafted, for whatever reason, injury/suspension. I thought he showed improvement last season, but it was nothing consistent, nor anything that impacted big games for us down the stretch.

I'm just wondering what their real plan is for him. I'd rather keep both Wilson and Boyd. Jolly is a lock. 8 DL seems like overkill, but maybe their plans for him at LB are more involved...?

there are so many lbers as well. It seems like a stacked house. They better be a top 10 defense.
