Report: Packers Working Out OL Adam Gettis

Report: Packers Working Out OL Adam Gettis

According to Josina Anderson of ESPN:

Gettis is a third-year pro that spent his first two years with Washington.

After being selected as a fifth round draft choice, Gettis didn't play as a rookie.

In 2013, Gettis played in 13 games exclusively on special teams.

According to ProFootballFocus.com, Gettis played 47 snaps this preseason before being released by Washington, grading out with a positive +2.9 rating.

With Packers center J.C. Tretter nursing a knee injury, the Packers are thin on the interior of the offensive line.

I am not a fan of Lane Taylor. Gettis played for Iowa and was 2nd team Big Ten. Still, looks to me like JAG. Still, I don't have Taylor as rising to that level.

I wonder I the Packers are currently holding on to all three QBs partly as a draft-bait strategy to try to get something for Flynn. We are pretty thin at O-line until Tretter is back, and he has a history - though short - of injuries. O-Line has taken the greatest loss-to-injury impact from the preseason, except possibly at tight-end, and I'm not sure I'd equate the loss of Lyerla to the loss of Raji. If all goes right, we may be Super.

Go Pack Go.

1. Ridiculous
2. See #1 and repeat
3. Possibly
4. Most likely, but not due to just this preseason. More like body of work in GB.

The Rams would take Pryor over Flynn. Flynn has already proven with three teams that he is not QB material. The only reason he is back is we were in a bind. I cannot think of any team trading for him or offering up anything for him.

If teams feared Intel then nobody would cut anybody who has been around for years. Which is Not the case. Multiple plays are run out of the same formation. So even if Flynn told them what we ran they are still guessing what play we will actually run. And I didn't this team was so good that they had spots on the roster for buddies. Hell sign me then! I will be his best friend and work for a quarter of Flynn's salary! Contact me pack. I will be the best friend Rodgers ever had!

There is no reason to keep Flynn, other than he managed the team last year to a couple wins. Maybe that's enough, they don't want history to repeat itself. Is Tolzien better? Yes, in isolation - but he, and the staff, need to see him prove it when it counts. Until then they have Flynn. I'm sure this is his last year in the NFL, and next year Tolzien will be the guy.

There is some evidence that NFL teams are concerned about Intel: Section 2(b) states: "A practice squad player may not sign an NFL player contract with his club's next opponent later than 4:00 p.m., New York time, on the sixth day preceding the game." [In case of a bye week, the prohibition commences 10 days preceding the game.]

That being said, I don't think the rule is there to stop player movement for general Intel purposes, like player tendencies, hand signals, what plays are run out of various formation, etc., because these are all heavily scouted. I suggest the rule is there to stop a practice squad player from signing with another team after his team has put in it game planning and scheming and practiced for an upcoming opponent.
