Long snapper — a position that should not even be in existence — Brett Goode is done for the year.
Goode was placed on injured reserve on Monday after injuring — wait for it… his hamstring, on Sunday!
The Green Bay Packers Annual Hamstring Epidemic has begun and it has now claimed Brett Goode.
The Packers quickly went out and signed Taybor Pepper to replace him. The Packers actually had Pepper in briefly. Pepper was signed after the season to compete with Derek Wolf for the long snapper job. However, he was released on May 8, so there was no competition.
The Packers didn’t like Wolf, either. They released him and then brought Goode back after Wolf didn’t click with kicker Mason Crosby.
So maybe explain to me again why the actual center can’t just snap on field goals and punts? Are Corey Linsley’s arms too short to get it back there?
I don’t know the answer to this question, although I do feel it’s absurd to even ask.
Anyway, see ya later, mullet!
The Packers have also signed offensive lineman Ulrick John off the Cardinals practice squad. Their top three tackles were listed on Monday’s injury report. David Bakhtiari hasn’t played since week 1. Bryan Bulaga started this past week, but who cares? Not only is he mediocre, but he’s injured again. Which brings up the question, when isn’t Bryan Bulaga injured?
So maybe Justin McCray and Adam Pankey on Thursday, which will be just delightful.
We don’t know the roster move that brought in John yet.
