You probably know the name Brian Price. The defensive lineman was with the Green Bay Packers before.
The Packers signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and he actually appeared in one game that year. He was in Dallas last year and then Oakland this year before being cut.
So how did the Packers not get Price?
He decided to stay on the Cleveland Browns’ practice squad instead of re-joining the Packers’ active roster. The Browns, who are basically the Packers East since John Dorsey took over as GM and then sucked away Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith, pulled the old Packers’ move of upping Price’s salary so he would stick around.
No honor among thieves and Dorsey has clearly proven himself to be a thief, thus far.
The Packers are looking for defensive line help after losing Muhammad Wilkerson to a season-ending ankle injury last Sunday.
They reportedly also worked out Quinton Dial this week. Dial was on the roster last season. The Packers signed him after he was released by the 49ers.
Dial was unspectacular in 2017, but Wilkerson was unspectacular in three games this season. We don’t see much of a difference.
Dial had 19 tackles and a pass defended in a limited role with the Packers in 2017. Wilkerson had five tackles and nothing else through three games with the Packers this season.
It’s possible the Packers won’t bother signing another defensive lineman at all at this point. Dean Lowry was a starter last season. He’ll get back into that role now.
The Packers seem to be high on 2017 third-round pick Montravius Adams as well. Adams has only gotten 13 snaps on the season. He’s going to be getting more now.
We’re still likely going to see a move, however. At some point.
Maybe they’ll bring back your boy Jeff Janis.
