If this whole football thing does not work out, Packers FB Danny Vitale is going to be right at home at Chip N Dales or maybe as a stunt double for Channing Tatum.
Vitale started out with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ practice squad before signing with the Cleveland Browns in 2016. In 2018, he joined the Packers’ practice squad and was moved to the active roster towards the end of the season. While Vitale played in 15 games last season, and started 4, he did not make much of an impact in Matt LaFleur’s new offensive scheme(even though he seems like a great fit for it).
He managed a total of 3-yards rushing and 97-yards receiving for the season. While he did get more receptions than any season prior, I was expecting him to be targeted more often given Davante Adams missing a few games and the Pack being light on the WR depth. We should hopefully see more of him this coming season, but no word yet on his return.
For the curious, his NFL combine bench press performance was 225lbs for 30 reps. His max is probably around 400lbs, but that’s just speculation on my part. I doubt he is testing his max press very often given the risk of injury and what his career is worth so we will probably never know for sure.
Would someone explain to me how come he can’t be used in a similar way the Saints use Taysom Hilll who by the way gave our coaches a black eye for letting him go without recognizing his potential???
Taysom Hill”s 40 yard dash time is faster than Alvin Kamara’s. Hill is an extraordinary athlete for both coordination and speed. I agree that the Pack should have never let Hill go but few players can be utilized the way he can be utilized.
Well said gp…and also credit Sean Payton and the Saints staff in utilizing him.
Besides his athleticism and speed, the dude is just a football player. Can he be a successful QB, i don’t know. But i know 2 things…1) We won’t see him kneeling during the Anthem. 2) He loves to play football at whatever position.
My first thought in seeing that photo……Freddie Mercury is still alive and he is ripped!!
The problem with guys like this, is they are obsessed and slaves to their body. They dedicate and predicate life’s choices, based off their body. Like having an obsession looking at themselves in mirrors. F that…go to taco bell and eat something. We’ve had guys like this before, workout warriors, gym rats like D. Jones, and S. Barrington.
It’s been proven year after year after year…….being ripped has little influence on how good of a football player you are.
Look….i’m just going to say it…because it’s uncomfortable having men admire themselves, then posting a pic of the man admiring himself in his little beige shorts, clenching his fist, then using the word “studmuffin” describing that man.
It just ain’t right.
