I have never been a fan of Bryan Bulaga. Here’s a guy the Green Bay Packers spent a first-round pick on in 2010. They wanted him to be a left tackle, but he wasn’t good enough to be a left tackle.
David Bakhtiari, a 2013 fourth-round pick booted him from that role. Might not have happened if Bulaga were actually ever able to stay healthy, but that’s not who Bulaga is.
I was also not happy when the Packers signed Bulaga to a nearly $34 million deal in 2015. For what? Because he was drafted in the first round?
That’s never been a secret. Which maybe is why Bryan Bulaga and his weak-ass self blocked us on Twitter. A spade doesn’t like to hear he’s a spade, does he?
So for all of that, the Packers have gotten no All-Pros, no Pro Bowls and a guy who is constantly injured.
Bryan Bulaga has started all 16 games one time in his eight-year career. That was in 2016.
Bulaga has missed 34 games in his career with a variety of injuries. That number will go over 40 this year because Bryan Bulaga is out with a torn ACL. Gone for the rest of the season.
And hell, good riddance.
Justin McCray, Jason Spriggs, whoever. Let’s see what you got!
You can’t be much worse and certainly not any more injury-prone than Bryan Bulaga.
I’ve been hoping for the Packers to rid themselves of this mediocre player with an albatross of a contract for years. Unfortunately, the structure of the deal made that impossible — great job Ted, Russ.
Next year, they could realistically do it. The Packers would take on $3.2 million in dead money. They’d also save $3.55 million against the cap.
Do I think it will happen?
Ted loves his boys.
It’s funny that Mike McCarthy always says the best ability is availability. Well, no, not really, Mike. The best ability is actual frickin’ talent.
But Bryan Bulaga doesn’t have either, so this should be a moot point.
