    Glad to see Rolle is still on the team. That was the only cut that surprised me.

    Some team must have claimed Rolle?

    Weird! So maybe he cleared waivers, but decided to sign to the practice squad of another team?

    From the Packers website under "Packers announce practice squad":
    Signed to the practice squad were S Chris Banjo, WR Kevin Dorsey, C Garth Gerhart, WR Alex Gillett, RB Michael Hill, LB Adrian Hubbard, TE Justin Perillo, DE Luther Robinson, T Jeremy Vujnovich and WR Myles White.
    You sure it's Wilde always getting stuff wrong?

    IMO it's funny you cite an example of Wilde being correct in the same post you say he's always getting things wrong. BTW, I see you edited your post in which you said Wilde's didn't make sense because they wouldn't be keeping 3 WRs.

    If the biggest criticism of Wilde is getting the names of players wrong while tweeting it reinforces my opinion of him as a pretty good sports writer.

    I heard something about an injury settlement with Goodson. Maybe Rolle is going to the 53 after all, where he belongs. :sneaky:

    It doesn't make sense to me to keep three WR's on the PS. I'm guessing one of them will
    Be cut

    You maybe right. Goodson has a concussion and you can't cut an injured player

    Yeah. Goodson's spot could be getting cleared out for someone else coming in.

    I don't get it. They couldn't have cut him yesterday, but they can cut him tomorrow. So in other words he was injured yesterday and isn't injured anymore? The does not make any sense when they don't want him back (they could just IR him and reach a settlement). It only makes sense when it is a very short term injury (until tomorrow), and they want him on the practice squad now (and not over 6 weeks). And why is Rolle home, and not one of the receivers?

    Well there is obviously still some "shifting and moving" going on. Just gotta wait and see how it shakes out.

    I think so also but I saw where he was waived and figured this a good spot to drop the tidbit. He is practice squad eligible though, no?

    At 5:30 PM today Hodkiewicz and Wood reported the following:

    "The [practice squad] list does not include CB Jumal Rolle, but a source told Press-Gazette Media that Packers will sign Rolle to their practice squad on Monday. To do that, they'll have to release someone they signed today."

    They also reported that Banjo fills one of the new veteran PS slots. Evidently, White qualifies for "standard" PS.

    If this report is correct, I would guess one of the 3 WRs signed to PS will be released. It would make sense that Rolle would go to PS; we're fully stocked at DB for this season.

    http://www.packersnews.com/story/sp...-re-sign-wr-white-to-practice-squad/14901179/

    There has been another report attributed to Demovsky that the Packers have worked out, "T Michael Bamiro, T Manase Foketi, G Adam Gettis, and DB Robert Steeples."

    http://nfltraderumors.co/nfl-notes-bears-browns-cowboys-packers/

    I believe all of these guys are PS eligible under the "standard" rules.

    However this shakes out, the workouts indicate there is keen interest in adding an O-Lineman, evidently to PS, which would result in another PS cut if any of them are signed.

    I wish the NFL would go ahead and expand rosters as well as practice squads.

    Seems obvious if the league is serious about extending the regular season, but it would improve the sport either way.

    Do I have to have a certain number of replies before I can create my own thread?

    Not sure why you thought marking WIMM's post "Old" was appropriate. Is this an inside joke I'm unaware of?
