    Bruce Gaston cleared waivers and was added to the Packers practice squad. He was released this
    past weekend as Jared Abbrederis WR was added to the active roster.

    I thought he'd get snatched up by someone, but i suppose they would have had to put them on their active roster and nobody was willing to do that yet. I'm glad, I think with time he'll be a good rotation guy

    Yeah, this is actually great news. He hasn't shown up yet but IMO it's good to retain guys that know your system. Defensive linemen have a knack for injuries in general and Gaston is a good secondary insurance policy.

    This seems like a logical move. He has some potential and could be worth developing. With Josh Boyd already done for the year, the Packers have protected themselves with both Gaston and Christian Ringo on the PS should another D-lineman fall.

    Anyone just see that sack by Gaston? Haven't watched the Bears much, but it's on, he just destroyed the Broncos center

    The only Packer to get a sack over the past three weeks. It should still count even though he's an ex-Packer. We need something to shout-out about since there has not been much else to cheer lately.

    It's only one play obviously but I really liked him and was sorry to see him signed off of the PS.
