To combat some offensive line troubles a few weeks back, the Green Bay Packers looked to the recent past by signing right tackle Mark Tauscher.
Now the team may look even further back to help its running back situation.
The Packers worked out Ahman Green Monday, in addition to Dominic Rhodes. (We first saw the report from Scout’s Adam Caplan, and it has been confirmed by many outlets since.)
Most likely, the Packers are just kicking some tires in case of emergency later in the season. Running back DeShawn Wynn missed Sunday’s game with a knee injury, although Brandon Jackson returned the lineup.
Tauscher’s experience thus far is a good reminder that these stories get fans excited, but don’t always have a huge impact. Tauscher is at least a week away from even participating in team drills with the Packers.
