Like Nick Perry, cornerback Kevin King is made of glass. And like Perry, the Green Bay Packers ended King’s season on Wednesday by putting him on injured reserve. Joining him there was running back Tra Carson.
This is the second season in a row King has been sent to IR. And that’s notable since he’s been in the league for just two years. King played nine games as a rookie before landing on IR with a shoulder injury. He managed just six games this season. The official injury this time is… wait for it… hamstring!
If the Packers could ever solve their hamstring epidemic, they might actually be a good football team again.
King will finish the year with 17 tackles and one interception.
Carson was called up from the practice squad when the Packers dumped Ty Montgomery on the Ravens. He played in four games and two special teams tackles is what we got from him.
Meanwhile, two roster spots. The Packers claimed two guys on waivers to fill those spots. Those guys are defensive end Fadol Brown from the Raiders and defensive back Natrell Jamerson from the Texans.
You can’t really tell me the tank isn’t on anymore.
Brown was an undrafted free agent this year. He’s had 17 tackles on the season, but more importantly, he played for the Raiders, who are garbage.
Jamerson played at Wisconsin and was a fifth-round pick by the Saints. They waived him in September and he’s been with Houston since. Until they waived him this week. He has seven tackles on the season.
This kind of stinks like Kobe Bryant’s last year with the Lakers. Okay, Byron Scott, you have one job. Just do whatever Kobe wants and then we’ll fire you after the season.
Okay, Joe Philbin, just do whatever Aaron Rodgers wants and then we’ll fire you after the season.
Am I wrong?
