    On the eve of training camp, the Green Bay Packers Thursday signed draft choices Daryn Colledge and Ingle Martin, and released safety Mark Roman. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the transactions.

    Colledge, a 6-foot-4, 299-pound guard/tackle out of Boise State, was the Packers' first of two selections in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft. The 47th overall selection and sixth offensive lineman chosen, Colledge helped Boise State to a 45-7 record from 2002-05. During Colledge's career, the Broncos were 31-1 in the Western Athletic Conference en route to four straight conference championships. Along the way, he set the school records for consecutive games played and started (both 52). Listed on Green Bay's first depth chart as the starter at left guard, Colledge hails from North Pole, Alaska.

    Martin, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound quarterback from Furman, was Green Bay's first of two choices in the fifth round (148th overall, eighth quarterback). He set career records at Furman for passing yards (5,751), passing touchdowns (42) and total offense (6,277) despite playing only two seasons. Martin had transferred to Furman in 2004 after spending his redshirt year plus two seasons at Florida, where he was recruited by Steve Spurrier. With the Gators, he served as backup to Rex Grossman as a freshman, then started at QB for four games as a sophomore before new coach Ron Zook replaced him with prized freshman Chris Leak.

    Roman had signed with the Packers as an unrestricted free agent from Cincinnati prior to the 2004 season.

    Colledge and Martin join defensive end Dave Tollefson (June 23), defensive tackle Johnny Jolly (July 7), safety Tyrone Culver (July 11), cornerback Will Blackmon (July 14), tackle/guard Tony Moll (18th), wide receiver Greg Jennings (Monday), wide receiver/kick returner Cory Rodgers (Tuesday) and guard/center Jason Spitz (Wednesday) among the 10 draft choices who have signed contracts. Just two of Green Bay's NFL-leading 12 draft choices - first-rounder A.J. Hawk and third-rounder Abdul Hodge, both linebackers - remain unsigned.

    Why would They Cut Mark Roman now? Didnt he have even a little trade value? That solved one problem who is going to be our starting Strong Safety.

    I guess you can't make a trade if nobody is willing to give you anything.

    Releasing Roman at this point was doing him a favor. He wouldn't have made the final roster anyway and he now can sign with another team in time to attend their training camp.

    As to Martin, good to see him signed. We needed a QB to run the scout team.

    The article goes on to say that coach McCarthy expects to have Hawk in camp before tomorrow first practice.Doesn't say much about Hodge.

    If Hodge is the only one who misses time in training camp, both he and his agent are idiots.

    Maybe that's why he fell as far as he did in the draft.

    first off.... trom if you dont quit dressing your dog up... ill be highly disappointed in you.

    secondly SEE YA ROMAN. weve moved on. what we had was special, and at times i even enjoyed it. but honestly your just not what we need. we need someone who cares about what we want, and about our feelings. someone who isnt selfish. And after this, we cant be friends.

    I agree with some atop of me. We definitly should have traded Roman. Yeah, he wasnt the greatest, but he wasn't the worst. We could have gotten a little somthing for him.

    Ya know this kind of comment amazes me. Some call Ted snakey then when he cuts a guy early so he can find another team he's called out for not getting something, anything for him?

    Face it, Roman sucked. Ted did him a favor. End of story.

    It would have been nice if you could have at least gotten somting for Roman, but the truth is, sometimes teams know you're going to cut him so why give something up. The guy isn't a very good football player. If you've watched him play the last three years you would all know that. It is no loss to us that he is gone. But sometimes those 7th round picks that you'd hope to get for a bumm like Roman can turn into players.

    Yes just what you said packed You never know who could possibily become a half way decent player. For example Tom Brady/Donald Driver...

    I'm guessing the Vikings are already on the phone with Roman and his agent. As an ex-Packer he meets their #1 critieria in evaluating a player.

    Boy I hope so! I will miss Mark Roman just about as much as Mike Hawthorne. Yeah, this guy was an NFL starter by default. He'll be picked I'm sure, but I highly doubt any general manager was going to give much more than a couple cases of beer for him.

    Aren't any of you sick to death of having strong safeties with TNS (Tiny Nut Syndrome). We have not had an eigth man in the box safety since the Great Leroy Butler shattered his shoulder blade.

    I am going to enjoy watching Manuel and Underwood laying wood out there. The freeway up the middle of Green Bay's is getting closed. Bye, bye Mark.

    No problem PL, I expect to be getting some crap the usual suspects shortly.

    Collins has a very bright future in Green and Gold. I bet Jim Bates kind of regrets his decision not to continue being the DC. The talent level has improved exponentially over the last 2 years.

    Many people said he could/would be released. If that's the type of information our 'insider' is gonna throw to us, we might as well find a new one. ;)

    I agree perhaps we should find someone else.
