Not a well known name in the group.. lol.

With Clay Matthews gone for at least a few more weeks due to a thumb injury and Nick Perry suffering from a broken foot, the Packers need linebackers.

And so they brought in eight guys who could play linebacker in their 3-4 defense on Tuesday.

The candidates were, per a league source, Victor Aiyewa, Alan Baxter, Demetrius Hartsfield, Jake Muasau, Justin Staples, Aston Whiteside, Brandon Williams, and Lawrence Wilson.

Did anybody really expect Ted Thompson to bring in established players/retreads/whatever you want to call them? This is the Packer way. Apparently only one of those eight was deemed worthy of our practice squad even though we had two PS openings.

Andy Mulumba has been one of my favorites among the rookies from the day he was signed, I think he will do fine. Palmer also has looked good. Those two plus Neal should be enough except for the prospect of even more injuries. Apparently Stoneburner is cross-trained for OLB in an emergency, and I assume Barrington could play there too if necessary. No need to panic.

I think a good portion of the Packers players were unknowns. I remember being duped by ESPN in favor of Chad Jackson who we heard quite a bit about and then he picked some kid who's supposedly slow out of Western Michigan instead. That turned out okay and similar things have happened in the past.

Plus, unknown is cheap! lol

As long as The Packers have "The Indestructable one" anchoring the middle, and making sure everyone is in place and knows their assignments, they wil be fine!!!!

I would like to see Sam Barrington get a few reps on the inside, just to spell either Hawk or Lattimore.

Actual game experience is so much more valuable than practice.

This time of the year I suppose it isn't too surprising that there isn't a well known name in there. Just hoping our LB injury bug is done for the season.

Nonstopdrivel (20h) : should have done*
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Hi 😊😉
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : I guess I should have did a refresh when I walked away from the computer.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : Peters is 25 with one year left on his contract at just over $3M
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Mel Kiper sticks with Marcus Davenport to GB in 2nd mock
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : As for Marcus Peters, how old is he an what's his contract years left?
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Packers got tired of Sitton's antics.
Zero2Cool (21-Feb) : Sitton was released not because of play or salary, but personality. He will not be re-signed.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : If we are planning on possibly cutting Cobb I can see the 2nd round pick. A second round pick for Peters is a pretty good deal.
Smokey (21-Feb) : I'd offer Cobb + a 3rd round pick + a 6th round pick in 2019 for the CB Peters from KC.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : I guess that is a highter round pick
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : Suggestion was a 2nd round pick. I would want a lower round pick. I think that is too much. A 3rd or 4th seems about right.
Smokey (21-Feb) : Cobb and WHAT PICK ?
TheKanataThrilla (21-Feb) : A suggestion I saw was a trade of Cobb and a Pick for Peters. I think that would be a great move.
Smokey (21-Feb) : Sitton was drafted be GB in 2008, not a young man at this point, but still is a "bear" of a man.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : Sitton? Maybe if the price is right.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : I doubt the Packers would try to resign Sutton. But who knows? If the price is right?
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Bears declining option on Josh Sitton. He'll be Free Agent.
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Chiefs CB Marcus Peters trade rumors -- come to Packers!
Smokey (20-Feb) : Join us in Packershome and be part of the discussion today .
Zero2Cool (19-Feb) : Elizabeeth ... good bye
Zero2Cool (19-Feb) : Saturday, August 19, 2017
Zero2Cool (19-Feb) : That's dedicated spammng!
Nonstopdrivel (19-Feb) : For some reason, I had to flush my DNS cache to access this site from my laptop today.
Nonstopdrivel (19-Feb) : I prefer toads to frogs, Smokey, thank you very much.
Rockmolder (19-Feb) : My girlfriends says thanks, Rourke.
Smokey (19-Feb) : Nonstopdrivel that you most likely say to all the frogs you meet .
Nonstopdrivel (19-Feb) : Rockmolder's avatar is so fucking sexy.
gbguy20 (19-Feb) : never seen the interview before. tough to listen to. can't believe it was 7 years ago
gbguy20 (19-Feb) : just watched a nick Collins tribute on yourube. the end featured an interview with nick reflecting on his injury
buckeyepackfan (17-Feb) : Saints De'Vante Harris nothing but a POS!!!!! Look up his tweetes on Florida killings!!
Nonstopdrivel (17-Feb) : They're laying new gas line near my house. The trucks are all from a company in Madison.
