    Opportunity now knocks: What do we do?The Broncos didn't want to lose him, but had to make a choice! Now what do we do? We can still use a good #5 Receiver who dominated in the SEC last year.

    Tavarres King - WR - Free Agent
    Broncos waived WR Tavarres King.

    The moves clears a spot for Von Miller's return to the active roster. A fifth-round pick, King was just promoted from the practice squad Tuesday and could draw some interest on waivers.

    Since the waiver process takes time I would hope TT can evaluate White tomorrow and then make a decision on claiming him. I don't think you can feel slighted by him staying in Denver when they proposed adding him to the roster. Remember, he did have his locker cleared and he would not have done that if he didn't think he was coming to GB. Busch league by Elway. Treat the guy with a little class and don't act like he is just a pawn to you.

    Can the Packers still sign this guy or has the opportunity passed?

    I think it would be verrrrry interesting to have Chris Harper and King as our two backup WRs. Harper was a 4th round pick for Seattle that struck out there and in SF, but the guy has potential. King looks for real. Both of them are better than any WR the Packers had on the practice squad IMO.

    After 1 week (and the Packers no longer needing a WR) the Broncos cut Tavarres King. This time the Panthers claim him on waivers.


    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/10/21/panthers-claim-tavarres-king-off-waivers/

    I wonder if the Packers put in a waiver claim? We will never know - I would guess not. He was offered a spot and then signed with the Broncos. If he was more excited to play for the Pack, he would have signed then.

    Poor bastard. Had the chance to catch passes from Rodgers and be on a team in the hunt for a SB. Now he is with the dregs in Carolina. He must be real happy with Elway.
