    Former Packers tight end Spencer Havner visited the team on Friday to undergo a physical and see how far he has come in rehabilitation of a pulled hamstring, his agent said.
    Havner, who was let go in camp and picked up by the Detroit Lions, was released again after suffering the hamstring pull. The Packers may need help after rookie Andrew Quarless suffered a shoulder injury against the Jets Sunday and Havner would eventually be able to help fill the void.
    However, he isn't fully healed from the hamstring injury and probably would be a candidate to be signed coming out of the bye.
    i was a little surprised to see this.

    that would be a welcomed improvement on depth, and we could always use depth in this season

    SIGN THE MAN NOW!!!! The only thing our young TE's have proved is that they're not yet ready to take over the load. Throw in the injury-riddled state of the LB corps, and this becomes a no-brainer!

    Sign him now.

    I'd be very disappointed if he ended up somewhere else again.

    I was upset that we cut him, he was decent, I hope the Packers sign him. Havner > Quarless.

    Good addition to the receivers and to the special teams, if his hammy will let him play.

    Havner has at least proven he can catch the ball in the endzone.

    Quarless > Havner as a receiver, no doubt about it.
    Crabtree > Havner as a blocker and ST player.

    But Havner has good value. Would like him to be back.

    I feel like havner made our offense go last year on 3rd and short. He was ALWAYS open for a short dump off and nice run for a first down when he was in the game. He had 4tds towards the end of last season.

    you guys must have forgot, March 17th, Spencer Havner Arrested for crashing his motorcycle and suspicion of drunk Driving..... that = you get cut no matter what.(edit: unless your are Ben Roethlisberger ;) Good to see he is getting a second chance, even though word from Detroit was he was a bad teammate/ Poor work ethic. Hopefully he can regain last years form and catch a couple td's.

    just gotta wait this one out and see, I think Havner was money in a lot of big games last year including the Wild Card Game...not sure how much he could contribute with our LB's, haven't seen him play that position much at all

    The cutting of Spencer Havner made me as mad as when we released Jon Ryan, passed on Randy Moss in 2007, drafted Justin Harrell at #16, Brian Brohm in round 2 in 2008, and made Mike Neal our 2nd round pick this year.

    If we get him back, I will be very very happy. That guy produced as many TDs last year as Greg Jennings did.

    Agreed with Havner and Ryan. Easy to judge Harrell and Brohm as mistakes now, that's for sure. Neal may well be a great pick-- too early to say. The wisdom of not dealing with Moss needs no explanation. He's been a head case since high school, about the time his social development stopped.

    Last year he Was a beast in the red zone and he doesn't drop passes. Also we can use him on special teams.
