Kyle Sebetic is the Newest Packer

Kyle Sebetic

The Green Bay Packers have gone and signed defensive back Kyle Sebetic.

Is this guy the replacement for Tramon Williams and Davon House?

Hardly.

His signing is interesting for really only one reason.

Sebetic participated in the NFL’s first veteran’s combine last Sunday. That combine is just like the regular combine, except it features guys who are supposedly washed up, rather than guys just coming out of college.

Sebetic is just the second guy who got a contract as a result of that event, following receiver Nathan Slaughter, who signed with Arizona earlier this week.

So who the hell is this guy?

He’s a Wisconsin native (Pleasant Prairie). That’s not going to get him a roster spot, though.

Sebetic was a four-year starter at Dayton. He was an undrafted signee by the Giants last offseason.

They released Sebetic on August 4 and re-signed him to the practice squad for one week in November. So we have no idea whether he can compete at the NFL level at all.

    Must have reminded Ted of Chuck Cecil.

    He played corner at Dayton, so he has some athletic ability. If you watch his highlights, he is a very sound, hard hitting tackler.

    My guess is that yeah he definitely isn’t a potential replacement for Williams or House, but he could be groomed to replace Bush as a special teams gunner.

      Yea I lost count on the number of NFL corners coming out of Dayton.

    Good call Uncle.

    Ted lurches into action with a real impact signing. Maybe we can convert him to OLB???

      give TT a break, bro. doesn’t he deserve to rest on his laurels for a bit, after the Peppers “coup” last season?

    Checked his combine out. He’s got House size and speed. 37″ vertical and 10’3″ broad jump. He’s got NFL DB size and athleticism and cheap so we sign him up and see if he can be the next diamond in the rough like Shields and Rolle. You can’t teach athleticism, size, and youth. If he’s a quick learner and can figure out Capers scheme in camp and PS then got a good backup on the cheap. TT must be inspired by Jordy Nelson and go for these underestimated white guys with size and athleticism (Jared Ab, Jeff Janis and now this guy). It worked for Bill Belichek.

      careful. unless he is gay, Obwana-zombies, or even BO himself, might call out that kind of thinking as “racist” no?

        Jordy admits publicly that him being a white receiver gives him advantage because he’s underestimated.

    Got no prob with extra camp bodies, I’m just trying to figure out how and why we’re so damn cheap when compared to every other organization. Are there a few quality vets left to sign? Maybe he will monitor other teams and sign their last cut guy(s) at end of preseason.

      TT also looks at Lacy and HHCD as examples of how he can immediately fill a void in the starting lineup with draft for cheap. One thing you can count on is that young guys are more durable and can recover faster than older guys.

    We’re trying to be in position to keep our studs every year and pounce on a quality FA when we need them. That said, I think that we should have gone for House to lock that up so we only have to worry about drafting ILB, NT, TE. Now we got to try to draft a CB early as well. I don’t think they trust that House can stay healthy enough to risk a long term contract. The worst thing you can do is to pay a guy $6million to be on injured reserve.
