Who’s running this clown show? That’s what I’d like to know. On Monday, the Green Bay Packers re-signed cornerback Jumal Rolle, who they cut on Saturday.
This time, he’s on the practice squad. On Sunday, it was reported that Rolle was part of the practice squad. Then the Packers released their 10-man practice squad and Rolle’s name was not on it.
Well, now it is.
Of course, to make room for Rolle — one of the stars of the preseason — the Packers had to release someone. And that someone was receiver Alex Gillett.
So let me ask you this. What sense did it make to sign Gillett to the practice squad on Sunday, knowing you were going to sign Rolle on Monday and release Gillett?
Did you just want to fuck with the guy?
Maybe see what would happen to his psyche after being cut twice in the space of three days?
Play a joke on him?
“Hey kid, we’re signing you to the practice squad! Just kidding! I got you good, you fucker!”
We don’t have an answer. There has also been speculation that there might be some more roster tinkering coming.
Demetri Goodson, who presumably beat out Rolle for the sixth cornerback spot, is dealing with a concussion. If the Packers had cut him on Saturday, they would have had to pay him an injury settlement.
The rumors have it that they still want to release Goodson, who obviously isn’t ready to contribute this year, and put him on the practice squad. They could then elevate someone to the active roster.
Is that guy Rolle? Only if there’s any justice.
Alex Gillett would probably tell you there isn’t.
I don’t care what GB had to do to get Rolle, it’s all part of the game. Ted’s just playing with the rules.
I’m pretty sure when everyone saw they had three wide receivers on the PS that something was gonna give. Rumor on the street was that Rolle was fielding offers from other teams to be on their squads and took an extra day to think about it supposedly. Don’t know if that’s true or not just one of the rumors. Either way White was on the active roster and had game experience, Dorsey has the lucky distinction of being a draft pick with at least some potential and Gillett was simply the odd man out of the equation. Wish him well, being a converted quarterback he has been getting better at receiver the last two years, perhaps someone will pick him up.
Either way I can imagine that something will be done with Goodson to open a spot on the gameday roster for either Rolle or Banjo, most likely Rolle. I can’t imagine he’d stay in Green Bay unless he was assured that he would get a chance to suit up for a game. Either way we have a pretty deep roster set.
I’m glad he’s back – he seems like someone that can really contribute. Both he AND Banjo. I wouldn’t mind seeing Quarless get dumped and bringing in a veteran Center….
Hope TT does the logical thing and cut Goodson soon so we can elevate Rolle to Roster. Williams and Hayward are likely to get injuries early and often.
In Ted we trust. Don’t mess with my religion! I go to church every Sunday (and sometimes Thursday) and let the big man upstairs work out the details. Don’t ask so many got-damned questions or it’ll fuck up my faith, traditions, and my family values.
…(and sometimes Monday)…
First you bitch about Rolle getting cut over Goodson. Then he clears waivers and the Packers sign him to the practice squad. Now you’re bitching about Gillett getting cut.
Maybe, just maybe, the Packers have a plan. A plan that neither you or me knows anything about. Maybe we should just sit back and watch before we rush to judgement.
But that would go against the M.O. of Total TMZ Packers.
