DeAngelo Yancey Already Working On His Lambeau Leap

The Green Bay Packers grabbed themselves a couple of receivers late in the draft, last week. They picked Purdue’s DeAngelo Yancey in the fifth round and LSU’s Malachi Dupre in the seventh.

Traditionally, rookie receivers don’t get much playing time under Mike McCarthy. You can go back to last year and ask Trevor Davis. You can also look no further than bigger names like Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.

But Yancey and Dupre probably don’t know that.

By the look of it, Yancey thinks he’s going to be getting into the end zone a lot. He’s already practicing his Lambeau Leap.

We’re all for seeing some Leaps that count for Yancey, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

The Packers will again enter camp this year with an abundance of receivers who could make a legitimate claim to a roster spot — Nelson, Cobb, Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, Davis, Jeff Janis, Yancey and Dupre.

Last year, they opened the season with seven receivers on the roster. They barely used four of them — Janis, Davis, Jared Abbrederis — who was later released, and Ty Montgomery — who was later converted to running back.

It will be interesting to see how that position plays out this year.

    A hockey player should never touch the Stanley cup unless he has earned it on the ice. A Packer player should not do a lambeau leap until he has earned the opportunity by scoring a TD.

    Doesn’t be have to score first?
