  1. Sherrod, Barclay and EDS are the backups? There’s got to be some kind of trade developing here.

    1. That Reggie Wells cut is the only surprise so far. I don’t think there’s a fan or beat writer out there who had him gone. A possible trade seems to be likely in light of this.

      And as you noted, I think it speaks of higher chances for Sherrod and Barclay.

      1. Reggie Wells is cut in part because they probably don’t want to guarantee his salary for the year. He can be signed again in Week 2 and paid for just the weeks he spends on the roster while Sherrod recovers. But if Sherrod can go they won’t bring Wells back.

        1. I’m not sure that would have been a huge difference, Wells signed the veteran minimum with no guarantee, so even if the Packers would have had to guarantee his contract after week 2 and then cut him, the loss is very minimal. I’m not sure about this, but there’s also a chance that he signed some sort of injury clause like Benson did.

      2. lol, actually I cut Wells in my prediction, though I admit it was a coin flip between him and Barclay. I actually think the offensive line depth is pretty good this year, Allen Barbe and Tony Moll anyone?

  2. I thought Levine would make it maybe at Jennings expense and thought Barclay might make it as well as Wells not instead of..

  3. No big surprises so far for me. I put together my predictions a few days ago and the only one I have wrong so far is Datko.

    I think Ted is holding off on the rest to see if he can pull off a trade for a backup OL or to trade James Jones for a 2013 draft pick from Miami.

    Next to go, I think, will be So’oto, Ross, Merling, Boykin (unless Jones is traded), Sherrod (PUP), Coleman. Starks is also a candidate for IR.

    1. I have a feeling that at this point, it’s probably too late, unless the Dolphins cave in. Considering that Jones was a 3rd round pick, Thompson is probably angling for a 2nd at the minimum and the Dolphins I’m sure don’t want to give that much up. Though maybe that’s will Gilleylen and Boykin are still around.

    1. Muir cut? And last night he was the last one on the field, soaking in the experience ….this NFL cut-down time is tough.

    2. Unfortunately for Muir, he’s a nose tackle. Packers don’t need a third nose tackle. He did play really well though, someone will pick him up for sure…
