Carl Bradford Justin Perillo

Carl Bradford In, Justin Perillo Out

We all thought Carl Bradford should have made the Green Bay Packers’ final roster. He now gets that distinction.

Bradford, a 2014 fourth-round pick who was moved from outside to inside linebacker, was brought up off the practice squad on Saturday.

The Packers made the move because starting inside linebacker Jake Ryan will be out for Sunday’s game against Washington. The team was only carrying three inside linebackers, with Blake Martinez and Joe Thomas being the other two.

Martinez and Thomas are expected to start on Sunday, but the Packers had no depth with Ryan’s injury. It had been suggested that Clay Matthews could move back to the inside in the event of an emergency, but he has — it seems like he has refused — but we’ll just say he’s expressed reluctance to do so.

Matthews played on the inside the past season and a half.

To add Bradford, the Packers released tight end Justin Perillo. He had four catches for 35 yards on the season.

Perillo’s release is a good sign that Jared Cook will be able to play on Sunday. With or without Cook, the Packers’ tight ends have been unproductive this season. So losing one of them doesn’t really matter.

    If Matthews really has “refused” to move inside, it is another sign that MM has lost the team. Did you notice that Matthews has exactly zero sacks, tackles, forced fumbles, interceptions, or any other game stat since he got hurt. Bottom line is that Matthews is still getting paid, the team is struggling, and he isn’t helping.

    Speaking of tight ends and linebackers. Someone in the linebacker or safety crew had better have their shit together in coverage because tight ends have been killing the Packers and the group for Washington isn’t going to get any easier.

      Jordan Reed is going to rape them if the current level of play defending right ends continues

    “………Clay Matthews could move back to the inside in the event of an emergency, but he has — it seems like he has refused — but we’ll just say he’s expressed reluctance to do so.”

    He has refused? He seems like he refused? He’s expressed reluctance to do so?

    Fucking pick one….Do you dream this shit up as you type the article?

      Why do you read here? You have an issue with every article and parade around like the editor in chief.

      I’ll be arrogant like you and assume I’m speaking for everyone else when I say…

      Fuck off. Start your own blog. You clearly have unlimited time on your hands.

      Don’t waste your breath with a response. You’ve joined EWolf as forever on mute.

      Seriously. I reserve the word cunt for a special brand of human. PFL you’re the definition of a cunt.

      Cheerio.

        Don’t like it, don’t read it. But you keep reading it.

        My comments and views are always football related.

        I’m waiting for the day when you have a thought or viewpoint about something football related that someone could deem intelligent.

        Until that day comes, keep being entertained here, and learning from the rest of us.

        The definition of a cunt, is calling someone on an opinion board a cunt. That otherwise contributes nothing. Maybe your time might be better spent with your Hillary friends setting fires, smashing car windows. Maybe grab your self a new tv.

        Thank you for understanding.

          PF4L . . . I respect much of what you have to say. This statement however is repugnant even on THIS blog. “Maybe your time might be better spent with your Hillary friends setting fires, smashing car windows. Maybe grab your self a new tv.” Why the political bullshit? This country is in deep fucking trouble. We are all in this together. Why this crap? Fuck MM, TT, DC and Alfred E Newman Murphy! This is a Packers football blog! not some fucking political forum bitching site.

            No offense to the Hillary crowd. I know it can’t be easy for ya’ll.
