I'm not seeing how this improves our team. I can see there is potential for him to be something good for us, but potential is of zero value unless it is realized.

I'm wondering if just having a kid had any impact on his decision to stay in Green Bay. Easier to stay put, have some familiarity around you after something life-changing. Just an outside thought...

Happy he was re-signed. He was showing some decent progress at the OLB position. Wonder what the details of the 2 year contract are...

A 26 year old who just made the transition to OLB. This improves the Packers because it gives him another year to improve at the position.

I can appreciate that cheeseheads123, but all this does is maintains the status quo of what was a pretty poor defense. I sure hope he improves. If he doesn't, he'll be Brad Jones Part Deux, another waste of what I am guessing to be $4M or more per year. If that's what the numbers are I don't think he is worth that, and I bet they are.

For what it's worth, he reminds me of Adalius Thomas. The way he played against Detroit at Lambeau was very impressive. It was maybe one of the best performances from a Packer defender all season. He needs to stay healthy, though. That’s really the key to every season with this team, but he makes drafting or signing an outside linebacker less important.

I'm not sure I'd make him into Brad Jones II (since he has, IMO, shown bigger flashes than Jones ever did). But, on the other hand, I'm not sure he's shown anywhere near enough flashes to justify excitement. He's a guy. Good backup quality I suppose. Not someone worth betting a "potential grow into high quality starter" pot on.

They need more than Mike Neal signings if they really want to improve the D above mediocrity. All they've done with the Neal signing (and, for that matter any signing of defense players that doesn't go beyond last year's roster) is demonstrate that they're not willing to get any worse than they were last year.

Not enough.

I'll be happy if he proves me wrong, but I really don't like this signing. I never liked switching him to OLB. I don't think this was a matter of outbidding anybody or a decision by Neal, just re-signing a guy nobody else wanted.
