Legendary senior writer, Packers lead blogger & NFC North featured columnist jclombardi agrees with Packers moves to reach 75 roster deadline.
Today, to reach the NFL's 75 roster limit deadline, the Packers wisely put these players on injured reserve. WR Jared Abbrederis; OL Don Barclay; RB Rajion Neal; NT B.J. Raji; LB Joe Thomas; and OL Andrew Tiller. We agree with these strategic moves allowing the final preseason Chiefs game to get good looks at players needing practice and at promising players for the final roster.
Further, replacing NT Raiji, DT Letroy Guion finally gets valuable playing time in the Chiefs game to get ready for the NFL season. Meanwhile, rookie center Linsley will also get valuable playing time replacing injured again center Tretter, in the Chiefs game to get ready for the NFL season. Actually Linsley has a higher preseason PFF score than Tretter. Again, how GM TT let veteran center EDS go in free agency, while resigning OLB Neal and creating this predictable scenario is beyond rational belief, but who know?
