If you're going to get fired by a pair of teams and play for a third in the first two months of your pro career, you could do a lot worse than following the Chris Harper plan. According to Bill Williamson of ESPN.com, the rookie wide receiver was claimed off waivers by the Packers today....

If they were gonna make a move, I wish they did it a few days earlier to give the guy an opportunity to learn some of the playbook.

Meh...3rd team in a matter of a few months and the Seahawks and 49ers aren't exactly stacked at WR to not have the guy on the 53.

The guy they wanted wasn't on the waiver wire a few days earlier.

Large physical rookie WR with a ton to learn... for a big physical WR, he has very good straight line speed, but not the best with stop and go nor changing directions. Good at using his body to block defenders from the ball. Probably needs a good bit of work with his footwork.

Some rumors have said, he came into Seahawks camp around 240 lbs which is probably over weight unless maybe they wanted him as a TE. It was rumored the 49ers wanted to turn him into a WR/TE tweener.

Probably a pick up to bulk up special teams, especially this week.

Only way he sees the field on Offense is if.......hell not even going to say it.

Welcome to the team!!!

Hope he kicks ass on Special teams!!!

I anticipate the Packers trading down their 1st round pick this season for a second, third, and fifth pick so that two receivers can be drafted. I really want to see Jones and Nelson resigned again, but we need to keep the receiver factory going.

Nelson doesn't seem to be greedy with contracts so far, so as long as they make a reasonable offer - I would imagine he will return. Same with Jones, if he will take a reasonable contract as well. What receiver in their right mind would want to be on the field with any other quarterback?

I also agree with your call on trading picks. It is obvious thos year that we have lost a lot of depth at WR. The good news is Green Bay has done well with bringing receivers up, so it shouldn't be a long term issue - as long as we keep our main guys.

This is just one of the problems of maintaining a winning franchise. I have had many an argument about replacing our veteran players and replacing them with quality youth. People tend to look at their teams and identifiable players and have hurt feelings when they are replaced or released. The bottom line is that football is a business and to stay competitive, a GM needs to have ice water running through his veins to make the decisions that keeps a team young and talented. The Packers have a pretty good man in place.

I disagree about getting several WRs fairly high in the draft. Yeah, we might lose one or the other of Nelson and Jones, slim chance even of both, but we will still have Cobb and a much more experienced Boykin, and it's much too easy to pick up mid-level WRs. This guy Harper may or may not amount to anything, ditto that for Dorsey or White or Walker, but the point is, they aren't that hard to find. What we might do is go for a WR in the first round, but only if some real star prospect falls to us.

Ted takes a C high this year.

Although he does have a track record of drafting at positions at which contracts are upcoming. He's also shown the ability to hit on WRs in the 3rd round.

We've got 3 right now who can play. We had 5, but keep in mind, DD wasn't drafted high. Keep the door open for a guy who's gonna fight his way in from the bottom.
