    ESPN Milwaukee reports that the Packers have added an ex-Bronco and an ex-49er to the linebacking corps. I like the idea of a 6' 4" linebacker. He could block some passes. But I've never heard of these guys.

    Wilhelm I remember playing well for the Chargers.

    But nothing big. He may be better than what Chillar is doing...

    All roster spots are taken now. There were 2 spots left with Neal and Popps at IR, but with they signed 3 LB and cut Simpkins.

    However, though thin at DL, with Jenkins and Pickett back, what I think they'll do is cut Montgomery and Fran├žois to make room for the 2.

    About Starks, I don't think he'll play this year... If he does, one of the TBs are cut. Hall, Johnson or Nance.

    dont like the idea of a 6 4 inside backer.. too tall and prolly too slow and cutting montgomery for one of these players is a horrible idea imo.. were ****** if pickett AND jenkins dont come back this week

    Brad Jones is out (probably) with shoulder issue so there's another roster spot opening up (maybe???). Can't keep the injury bug away for anything.
