    The Green Bay Packers have reached agreement on a four-year deal with third-round draft choice Jason Spitz.

    The Louisville offensive lineman became the eighth Packers draft choice to agree to terms, leaving just four unsigned heading into the first training camp practice Friday evening.

    The 6-4, 313-pound Spitz started 38 games at Louisville and enters camp No. 1 on the Packers' depth chart at right guard. The Packers drafted Spitz with the hope he could fill one of the three interior line positions and it wasn't long before they settled on a position that was considered a weakness last season.

    Still unsigned are: first-round pick A.J. Hawk, second-round pick Daryn Colledge, third-round pick Abdul Hodge and fifth-round pick Ingle Martin.

    Good to have Spitz on board before the start of training camp. There are still four more to go. Ingle Martin is probably taking awhile because with a backup QB there need to be a lot of clauses in the contract in case there are injuries to the guys ahead of him and he ends up (gasp!) leading the team.

    Of the four guys left, the most important one to have signed before the first day of camp is not Hawk, it is Colledge. He needs maximum time to mesh with the rest of the O-line if he's going to start as a rookie. I want Hawk (and the others) signed as well, but I think Hawk will be okay if he misses a few days of camp.

    :shock: According to roster on this site; GB has 99 still on the list. Does that mean that 19 have to be cut before camp?

    you do realize the roster is listed by numbers lowest to highest and some are not currently being used so there is really only 87 or 88 players

    I like everything I read about this guy. His bad-*** temperment is going to infect this line in a good way....and combined with Colledge's known nastieness.....well, I must say I like the attitude that Ted is drafting...Hawk, Hodge as well....all smart, nasty, motor-always-running kinda guys.

    Spitz sounds like a good guy - and JS Online reports his salary/bonuses as indicating he will likely start.

    On the roster ... How do we stand with exemptions for NFL Europe etc?

    Too late, cheesey......already labeled. Actually, while I am very supportive of TT and generally like damn near everything his is doing, much of my "support" for TT is actually in defense of the guy from some of the more errant and poorly composed criticisms that have flown his way.

    That said, I said from Day 1 that TT would be drafting football players...not a bunch of nancies who dabble in the sport for pay, p@ssy and parties....and would rid the roster of that type of player quickly. Thus far, I am batting .1000.

    TT lover, batting .1000 isn't going to get it done my man. That's only 10%. And while I love this draft class and what TT has done so far this year last years draft set us back even farther. I'm being fair to him now you should also.

    I do love Spitz, but the bottomline is who knows if he pans out? I THINK he has a brighter future than Colledge!

    I was going to say that too. Batting 1.00 would be much better. However, let's wait and see how A-Rod pans out when he gets a chance and how Poppinga recovers from his injury to label this last year's draft class though ok?

    Do you know why the Space Shuttle Challenger crashed? We discussed the issue during our programming class as it was relevent to programming errors.

    They used the wrong data type on some vital configuration that caused it to crash. It was an extremely elementary mistake that even new to the world programmers know better.
