Colledge’s Days As A Packer Probably Over

Daryn Colledge

Colledge has likely played his last game for the Packers.

[intlink id=”94″ type=”category”]Daryn Colledge[/intlink] has never been the Green Bay Packers best offensive lineman.

In fact, he’s probably the weakest of the team’s starting five, but he had a decent 2010 season and again proved to be one of the Packers most durable players.

None of that will probably make a difference once free agency begins, though. Colledge is set to hit the open market and the Packers haven’t made much of an effort to keep him.

In fact, they already look like they’re making plans to replace him.

The team has been linked to Baylor tackle Danny Watkins, who projects as a guard in the NFL, and may be available when the Packers pick at No. 32.

There’s also been a lot of talk about giving T.J. Lang a chance to compete for a starting spot. Colledge’s spot at left guard is the only position currently in question and coach [intlink id=”67″ type=”category”]Mike McCarthy[/intlink] said he thinks Lang, who was a tackle in college, might be better suited playing guard.

Whichever way you slice it, the writing seems to be on the wall as far as Daryn Colledge is concerned.

    And good riddance, I will give my props to the dude for always being suited on Sundays but he was pain in the ass for Packers. His trade demands in the off season isn’t really a Packer players personality (ill forgive AJ if he returns) Lang will be the next Sitton just watch.

  2. He seems to think he’s much better than he really is. Not that I’m an expert, or anything. As much of a “me” guy as you’d typically see on the O Line.

    He played good in his contract year so another team can pay the big $$ and enjoy the Colledge we saw for years aka garbage play!

    And he does seem a lot like a “me first” kinda guy. Typical Boise State player! ha ha
