Will the Special Teams Finally be Special?

draft logoThe Packers special teams was atrocious last season with botched onside kicks, poor kickoff returns etc., McCarthy said the ST’s would be better this year and it started with firing coach Shawn Slocum and promoting his assistant Ron Zook.

With an interception returned for touchdown in each of his last two seasons, the 5’11” 196 pound safety would have also been the best cornerback on the Sun Devil’s team but played safety because of team need. Sound familiar Packernation? A certain Clay Matthews was the best OLB on a certain team but played the ILB position because he was the best player his team had at that position. Now I am not saying that Damarious is the cornerback version of Clay Matthews. What I am saying is that at the collegiate level, Damarious Randall had that same kind of versatility and was willing to do what the team needed him to…and he did it very well. So when the Packers coaches get ahold of Randall…they expect they can make him into a viable replacement for the departed Tramon Williams. Continue reading

Packers Add Undrafted Free Agents

arodThe end of the draft signals the beginning of the undrafted free-agent signing frenzy. The Packers added sixteen to the roster. After a defense heavy draft, the undrafted rookies are almost all offensive players. The additions include another handful of wide receivers, which should make Aaron Rodgers very happy. Competition will be fierce for these guys to find a roster spot on a loaded team but who knows, maybe the next Sam Shields is in the mix. Continue reading
