    I'm wondering if he'll ever get an opportunity to showcase his stuff....

    If he's survived this long with the Packers without really doing anything of note, he must have something really positive.

    I know he is supposed to be a good ST's player as well but I remember one game where he kepted getting suckered into the middle instead of holding his lane and the returner popped out around where he was supposed to be for a bunch of yards.

    It happended like four times. I finally said "who is that guy" and it was Humphrey. They have to think fairly highly of him or they wouldn't have restricted him.

    I posted a thread several weeks ago asking who you think might step up and produce from within the ranks.

    I said Underwood at Safety and Beech at RB.

    Maybe this guy will do something for us.

    warhawk, I'm more inclined to say Zac Alcorn would be a better choice to step up...

    I think if the Packers keep 3 TE's he'll make it over Donald Lee. I see Bubba Franks, Draft Pick, and Humphrey on the roster. Of course this depends on injuries. If the Packers keep 1 FB they could and likely would keep an extra TE.

    I think Humphrey can be a decent red zone target. A guy that subs in on goal line packages but nothing more. He's not the solution to our problems at TE.

    I'm intrigued about Zach Alcorn, I think he can become a legitimate starter, he possesses speed and athleticism, however I don't know anything about his hands, does anyone know anything about this?

    I read he was an all-state performer on his high school basketball team, that has to make for good hands, Antonio Gates was a basketball player and he has some of the best hands in the league because he catches the ball with his hands and not his body.
