The Green Bay Packers did some transacting today, benching rookie defensive tackle Luther Robinson for the season and signing defensive tackle Bruce Gaston to replace him.
Robinson, who started the season the Packers’ practice squad, had four tackles on the season in limited action. He suffered a calf injury in practice on Saturday and is now on injured reserve.
Gaston comes to the Packers from the Arizona Cardinals practice squad. Like Robinson, he is a rookie that was an undrafted free agent. Unlike Robinson, Gaston has already bounced around the league.
His year has gone like this. Signed by Arizona. Cut by Arizona. Claimed by New England. Cut by New England. Claimed by Miami. Released by Miami. Signed to Miami practice squad. Claimed by Arizona. Released by Arizona. Signed to Arizona practice squad. Signed by Green Bay.
Surely, soon to be released by Green Bay.
Gaston is 6-2, 316 and played at Purdue. He had 48 tackles, including seven for loss and three sacks as a senior.
