Chris Harper

The Green Bay Packers have added some reinforcements for their banged-up receiving corps. They claimed Chris Harper, who was waived by the San Francisco 49ers Thursday.

Harper was a fourth-round draft choice by the Seattle Seahawks this year, but was released during final cuts. He was then re-signed to the team’s practice squad until the 49ers grabbed him.

Harper hasn’t seen any game action yet this season.

As a senior at Kansas State, Harper had 57 catches for 848 yards and three touchdowns.

Why Harper hasn’t been able to make an impact in the NFL, we have no idea, but he’s obviously going to need some time to learn the Packers offense if he’s going to make any sort of impact in Green Bay.

The Packers released running back Michael Hill to make room for Harper. Hill appeared in two games after being promoted from the practice squad.

He’ll still be eligible for the Packers practice squad.

    Great — another two-time cast off to fill the void left by another array of Packer injuries. Remember last year when EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE on this board was all about DuJuan Harris. Guys were sucking his d— left and right, Illitarion was getting in line for seconds to get on his hands and knees for the guy and low and behold a full 365-days later the guy in no more.

    NFL cast off’s are cast-off’s for a reason. This no name loser is no exception.

    Only reason the Packers win games and stay competitive is because they have Rodgers. Everything else on this team is injury prone trash or overrated sh–.

      You do realize that Dujuan is still on the roster right? Also that he was supposed to be the starter until he blew his knee out in the pre-season.. Get your facts straight before you go on a rant.

    I don’t give a SHIT who the Packers bring on board. Whoever they do better be full of PISS and vinegar. FUCK what everyone says, Rodgers can make any CUNT of a reciever look decent. Even that COCKSUCKER Jennings looked good although he is a MOTHERFUCKER. So don’t worry, it doesn’t matter what kind of TITS for wideouts the Packers have because Rodgers is gonna tear it up. IT’S ALL GOOD HERE!

    Some of you fellas ought to read “SunTzu – The Art of War”. Deception in every battle is key.Though there forces are mightier, we will exploit their weakness till we are strong. Then the solid blow to follow.
    My Pack will prevail.
    Go Pack Go!!!

    They were likely hot on Harper in the draft, like Seattle, these teams know how to ID talent—and admittedly Ted does have an eye for both receivers and their DB counterparts. I like the “name” Chris Harper, sounds like an NFL player to me. Time will tell if he sticks on the roster and makes an impact down the road but they certainly are trying to evaluate players they “liked” in the draft but did not select for one reason or another. I recall Harper having some of the prototype things we like in WRs, he has great body lean/ control and generally catches the ball naturally. He’s not a burner but he can get separation (at least at the College level) and probably is another YAC candidate. He’s got an NFL ready physique as I recall. Moreso than Tyrone Walker anyways. 6’1″ and 225 lbs.

    Folks are saying this is what distinguishes Brady from Rodgers, that Brady can make nobodies look good. I’d suggest the difference is that Rodgers is still runnng for our life, even though our offensive line has improved pretty well despite the loss of Bulaga. Indeed it looks better than last year.

      I’m not sure if they’re saying that anymore. Brady is having an off year with a rating of 75.3 and a QBR that ranks him at 19th in the league while he adjusts to losing his playmakers to injury, free agency, and prison. While I don’t believe in those stats too much, it is obvious that he is struggling this year. Every QB needs playmakers. Also, to be fair to Rodgers, he sure helped Boykins look great yesterday.
