Ego Ferguson Era in Green Bay Over Before It Started

The Green Bay Packers made a move by claiming defensive lineman Ego Ferguson off waivers from the Chicago Bears on Monday. As of Wednesday, it is a non-move.

Ferguson failed his physical and was released.

It’s kind of comical in a way. Here’s a guy who was a second-round pick in 2014, the only season he’s managed to play in all 16 games. In 2015, Ferguson was put on injured reserve after four games with a knee injury. He was then suspended four games for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. In 2016, he didn’t play in a game, spending the entire year on IR with a shoulder injury.

Cleary, the Packers found something troubling with Ferguson’s injury history when he showed up in Green Bay.

So Ferguson will not be trying to live up to his potential in Green Bay or maybe anywhere else.

Jerel Worthy, anyone? What is it with Big Ted and sucky second-round defensive linemen?

Personally, I think that anyone not good enough to be on the Chicago Bears’ roster, sure as hell shouldn’t be on the Packers’ roster.

    They 1st had a clue they were in trouble, when Ego had to climb 2 floors of stairs up to the medical room, and he needed to rest for 5 minutes after getting halfway up.

    I suppose the fact that he only played in 4 games out of 32 might have been a clue.

    I’m disappointed because here i thought Uncle Ted outsmarted the rest of the GM’s…….again.

    Of course i’m laughing in a sarcastic matter (it eases the pain).

    Can anyone remember a few people posting that if the Packers got rid of Ted. Ted would have his pick of jobs and write his own ticket?

    I fucking absolutely love some of you guys!!

    He is a camp body if he even passes the physical.

      Thanks, not sure what caused the failed physical but it is hard for a football player to come back from a patellar tendon injury. Ego had that injury I think in his second year and that is why I guessed he would fail his physical.

      Now if I could just be correct in TT riding off into the sunset after the draft, this year.

        I’d prefer he rode off into the sunset BEFORE the draft.

    So I don’t have to order the big foam Turd Ferguson cowboy hat? “It’s funny because it’s big” Turd said.
