Who would claim a third-string quarterback, we said? The New Orleans Saints, apparently.
Ironically, the Saints also claimed Joe Callahan last year after the Green Bay Packers released him. They claimed this year’s preseason hero, Taysom Hill, after the Packers released him on Saturday.
The bigger loss for the Packers, in terms of actual potential contribution, is defensive lineman Brian Price. He was claimed by the Dallas Cowboys.
Hill flashed real potential in the preseason and the Packers certainly wanted to keep him around on the practice squad, but no dice.
We had Price on our final roster, but he clearly lost out Christian Ringo in the Packers’ eyes.
And while we all might be salty about these two losses, let’s step back into reality for a moment. Bottom-of-the-roster guys don’t really matter.
The regular season starts next week and it’s all going to be on Aaron Rodgers, just like it always is.
