If you need somebody to go do some rails and bang some hookers with in Green Bay tonight, you might want to try to get a hold of Colt Lyerla.
The Green Bay Packers have the former Oregon tight end in town for a tryout. This guy has a list of misdeeds almost as long as mine and that’s damn impressive.
Lyerla supposedly had third-round talent, but went undrafted. Here’s why.
So, this dude has, uh…. some problems.
From the sound of it, his parents are real pieces of work. His mother is/was on disability and couldn’t provide much of anything. His father booked when he was a sophomore in high school and didn’t come back.
If you erase all of that, there’s a lot to like about the guy.
He’s 6-4, 242 and ran a 4.61 40. Lyerla is noted for being athletic and having soft hands.
He’ll need to get stronger though if he’s going to play in the NFL. He only had 15 reps in the bench press at the combine.
Now, all of that being said, we love second-chance stories and the Packers have been known to hand those out in the past. See: Koren Robinson and Johnny Jolly.
So of course we’re going to be pulling for this guy.
Aaron Hernandez v2
I don’t think he’s going to murder anyone, but this guy looks to have mega problems. Hope I’m wrong in a huge way because I think he’s got first round athleticism.
only 11 more reps than Abracadabra the Badger wonder boy…how can anyone in sports their whole life only rep out at 4?? Im 65 and can do that…..i think…
I think he’s more Gronk than Hernandez. If he can turn his life around (Green Bay would be one of the places to do it) he could become a great player.
Every A team needs a Murdoch
Nacho Dan FTW!!!
It was 5, Billy, and Abbrederis weighs 190 lbs. and is over 6′ tall-skinny with long arms is not a good combo for good bench results-collegiates don’t lift nearly as much as they do in the pros either. Finally, WGaF how much he can bench? He’s a receiver; can he play? That’s all I want to know.
Never thought Thompson would take a chance on Lyerla. Think it says alot on how they feel about the TE position this year after the draft.
We were one of 3 teams that attended his private workout. I think TT had his eyes on him for awhile. Very pleased by this
Disenfranchised, working-class white guy from a broken home? I like him.
Wow, this dude is a beast. If he shapes up and make the team, no one can stop our offense. We’re going to have 2 beasts out there grinding defenders to pulps.
Surprised by this pickup…but you can’t coach up natural abilities like he has. He should make the 90 man at the very least. If he sticks on the roster beyond that, it might be a result of us losing Finley to another team or early retirement.
There is a good use of Twitter. HAHAHAHA!!!!
I mean, say Hail Hitler or death to Whitey, whatever you want in the privacy of your own home, Americans died for that right, but to tweet that?? Hahahaha… Doing coke and tweeting do not mix!
This guy needs to “get stronger”? Then pictures lie because he looks like he could rip Chris Conte’s head off and piss down his neck.
A white boy whose dad ditched? That is a new one.
It’s as protected as anything you might say Ill-tarion.
Lots of people believe that stuff, it’s fodder for the disenfranchised.
You’d say his confusion about a cover up is worse than embracing racism?
Last thing Ill…. it’s no longer in your own home once it’s made it to Twitter and that is not his fault, it’s the fault of the generation that finds it okay to broadcast personal opinions to the world instead of your inside friends.
