The Green Bay Packers set their 53-man roster on Saturday. Now, they - like every team around the NFL - will take Sunday to set their practice squad.


WR Myles White
WR Charles Johnson
TE Jake Stoneburner
DB James Nixon
QB Scott Tolzien

That's a start, who else?

Looking for a couple of O-lineman to show up soon.

I like Stoneburner and Nixon too. Nixon's the dude who ran a 4.1, isn't he? Wouldn't mind if they added Kevin Dorsey as well.

I doubt it's a coincidence the Packers signed former 49ers QB Tolzien. Hopefully he has pretty good knowledge of their playbook/audible calls.

My understanding is the Packers release/injury them. Which means they releasing him, but can't official yet because his injury (toe). As teams aren't allowed released injured player with out an injury settlement, so they offical couldn't release Dorsey (toe injury) until an injury settlement is agreed on (or the year is up).

I remember the Super Bowl year, the Packers released/cut somebody but he refused all injury settlements, as he wanted to rehab the whole year and then come back to the Packers training camp. Everyone on the roster got a ring other than that guy... because the Packers tried hard to release him but he refused, so basically they didn't consider him on the roster. The other IR guys (which the Packers didn't release/IR) got a ring.

I believe you're talking about WR Terrell Sinkfield... who ran the extremely fast time but also is extremely raw and has been signed to and cut by 4 teams already (before week 1 of his rookie year).

A month with the Dolphins (not all of which he could work out for them before of offseason rules)
8 days with the Packers
15 days with the Bills
4 days with the Giants

I think he's more of a track guy than a football guy. He's too unpolished and raw (as of right now) and doesn't seem to have a natural instict for it... (like RB Green didn't haven't natural instict for reading blocking even though he has all the physical tools). Though who knows, Sinkfield might get a lot better with some time on the practice squads and/or off season training.

Also the Packers were reported to work out WR/RB (most likely only WR in pros) Sam McGuffie... who's another one of those raw but fast guys. He might be an interesting 3rd WR for the Packers on the practice squad if they wanted a 3rd.

As for Nixon... looks like he might of run a 4.31 which is still VERY fast. Shields ran a 4.30 ... but Shields also has the natural lighting quick reaction time when trailing which not all "fast" guys have the reaction time when trailing. Though Nixon do better than Shields in the 20 Yrd Shuttle and 3-Cone Drill according to those links. (links inside their 40 times)

68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
Zero2Cool: Precisely what I thought.
uffda udfa: Nah, that's okay. I already asked.
Zero2Cool: If you want your name changed, you need to send me a PM with the name change. Thank you.
uffda udfa: Hey Kevin...can you change my moniker to: Unfrozen Caveman Poster? No more uffda udfa. Possible?
Zero2Cool: Today's Birthdays: Smokey (59)

yooperfan: together. He is a waste of oxygen
yooperfan: Manziel is a very disturbed young man who is looking down the barrel of a prison sentence not too far down the road unless he gets his act t
TheKanataThrilla: He's better than what we currently have backing up AR.
Smokey: A backup what, bartender ?
TheKanataThrilla: Looks like Manziel is getting cut. I'd be interested in him as a back-up.
Zero2Cool: Dunno.
Smokey: WILL WE HAVE A SB "CHAT", Zero2Cool ?
Mucky Tundra: I wonder if Stat Padford will follow Johnson to the retirement center?
uffda udfa: Winston Moss has a better all time win % than MM at 1000%. Let's make this permanent. :)
uffda udfa: We should take note and realize our Jordy might not be Jordy at 31 this season.
uffda udfa: I think Detroit has a way of doing that to players.
Zero2Cool: Calvin is retiring at age 30, just like the great Barry Sanders.
uffda udfa: He'd be 31 just like Jordy but his body is done.
