Jobs Being Won, Roster Spots Being Secured

Those were some of the things discussed on this week’s Total Packers podcast, where the guys single out which positions it appears the Green Bay Packers have already decided.

Those include inside linebacker and tight end, where it appears the Packers will go with some unexpected starters.

The team also looks to have some potentially unprecedented depth, which will make shaping the final roster especially challenging. Who’s making moves and playing better than expected?

That list includes a number of linebackers — Joe Thomas, Carl Bradford and Datone Jones.

Finally, as usual, there are some undrafted free agents making a strong case to make the Packers’ final roster. The two strongest cases belong to safety Kentrell Brice and receiver Geronimo Allison. Under normal circumstances, they’d have a roster spot, but these don’t appear to be normal circumstances.

Someone else of note may have to depart to find a spot for either guy, especially Allison.

That may just leave a draft pick on the outside looking in. Hear it all and find out who by listening in or subscribing right here.

    Just thought I’d share this gem from a Vikings web site. As you know, the Vikings have a new, beautiful, state of the art stadium, a complete contrast with the broken down seat-deprived ugly Lambeau Field. A fan was writing about the new U.S. Bank stadium and his experiences there attending a concert. His detail included a review of the restrooms, compared with the old MetroDome, as follows:

    “They were nicer overall, with urinals instead of a Packer fan’s dinner trough.”
