Packers Practice Squad Signings: Green Bay swaps running backs adds WR

Hatcher Over the weekend, the Green Bay Packers quietly made a roster transaction, promoting defensive lineman Tyler Lancaster to the active roster from the practice squad. Lancaster took the place of running back Darius Jackson, whom http://www.packerscheapstore.com/david- ... rsey-cheap the Packers released, and his promotion opened up a spot on the practice squad.The Packers elected to fill that empty spot on Tuesday, but they also made a swap at another position on the squad. The first new name is wide receiver Keon Hatcher, who played his college football at the University of Arkansas. The 6-foot-1 Hatcher was invited to the NFL Combine in 2017 but injured his hamstring at the event and did not complete his drills.Hatcher spent five years at Arkansas and finished his career with 19 touchdowns and just shy of 1,900 receiving yards. He also added 21 rushes for 259 yards and a touchdown and pitched in a few kickoff returns early in his career. Hatcher spent the entire 2017 season on the Oakland Raiders’ practice squad.The other new face on the practice squad is running back Tra Carson. A dual-threat running back, Carson ran for 1,165 yards as a senior in 2015, adding 29 receptions for 183 yards and scoring a total of eight touchdowns. He projects as a physical runner Cheap Jaire Alexander Jersey , measuring in at 5-foot-11 and 227 pounds. His Pro Day numbers include a 40-yard dash time of 4.64 seconds and a vertical jump of 37 inches. Carson suited up for two games with the Cincinnati Bengals this year after spending all of last season on the active roster but failing to make the 46-man active gameday roster even once. He was released with an injury settlement on October 1st.In order to open up a second spot on the practice squad to make room for these two players, the Packers released running back Joel Bouagnon from the practice squad. Bouagnon was the Packers’ leading rusher in the preseason, but he did so with just a 2.8 yards-per-carry average. Through three games, the Green Bay Packers sit 24th in the NFL with just six sacks. For all of the talk of improvement with a new scheme under defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, the early results are ugly: the Packers sit 21st in the league in defensive passing DVOA on defense and a brutal 27th on defense overall.If it seems that the Packers aren’t generating enough pressure, you’re not wrong. Part of the issue is that when they do force third downs, they are too often the third-and-short variety, which limits what Pettine can call. Muhammad Wilkerson’s injury will surely hurt on the inside. On the edge, they got one awful game from Clay Matthews in week one, and afterward have seen Nick Perry practically vanish — and now he faces questions about his ability to play on Sunday.With these injury issues starting to pop up, the challenge for Pettine to find ways to generate pressure with his scheme becomes even greater.Packers’ defensive line ready to step up | Packers.comWith no Muhammad Wilkerson for the remainder of the season Cheap JK Scott Jersey , Dean Lowry and Montravius Adams will be called upon for more meaningful snaps. In addition, the Packers worked out old friend Quinton Dial, who could be a viable candidate to pitch in a handful of snaps per game on early downs.Packers' Mike Pettine facing decision on bringing pressure | Packersnews.comIt seems that Pettine has only called a handful of blitzes so far this season, which Tom Silverstein sees as a potential problem. However, Ben Fennell of The Athletic sees the issue being that the Packers aren’t forcing third-and-longs often enough, which is when those blitzes are most effective.Packers not getting enough from $59 million man, Nick Perry | Packers WirePerry is one of the reasons for the Packers' struggles in getting to the quarterback. He has just one sack -- on fourth down to clinch the win over the Bears -- and has not been able to generate pressure consistently in one-on-one situations. Adding to the challenge is that he's currently in the concussion protocol.The NFL roughing the passer rule might be enforced differently soon - SBNation.comThe competition committee -- with Packers president Mark Murphy as one of the key members -- is holding a call this week to address the roughing the passer rules and to consider adjusting the emphasis on what types of calls need to be focused on.Zimmer: 'Possibility' Dalvin Cook plays Vikings-Rams - NFL.comCook missed last Sunday's loss to the Bills after being injured against the Packers, but with that time off he's a question mark for Thursday's game.Ax-throwing bar deemed unsafe, has liquor license suspended for 1 day | MLive.comMaybe -- JUST MAYBE -- it's not a great idea to give people copious amounts of alcohol and encourage them to throw dangerous objects by using the tagline "Who said don't mix alcohol with axe throwing?"
