Just letting everyone on the Packers know, Iâ€™m available. Iâ€™m 6â€²2â€³ 200lbs, run the 40 in about 40, donâ€™t go over the middle but run crisp routes, have good hands and never had a DUI. Iâ€™ll work hard and take the minimum for a white receiver (which I think is about $6.50/hour).
Seriously though, now that Koren Robinson is going to spend the next year in court, jail or the barâ€¦ who does Favre throw to? Ferguson might not play again this year. That leaves us with 3 receivers! Not only that, but Driver is banged up (rib injuries donâ€™t tend to heal quick when youâ€™re always getting popped by linebackers and safeties on slant routes, either) and Ruvell Martin is not a really attractive #3 option.
So with that, the trading deadline passed without going after any receivers. I can certainly understand and applaud no mention of Randy Moss by the team or the mediaâ€¦ but no receivers period? Why not unload some of that depth at defensive tackle to go after a young guy with some potential? Instead, theyâ€™ll probably call up someone like Calvin Russell from the practice squad. Doing that would be as close as you could come to saying â€œfuck itâ€ to the entire season. I suppose weâ€™ll see a lot more two tight end sets and a lot of praying that no more receivers get hurt. Maybe we can have Woodson line up in the slot and finally have a defensive back who holds onto a ball.
