Packers won't tender DeShawn Wynn

The deadline for making tender offers to restricted free agents comes next Thursday.  And some teams are already making their decisions.

The Packers, for example, has told running back DeShawn Wynn that he won’t be tendered, according to Tom Pelissero of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.  (For what it’s worth, we’ve confirmed that one.)

Wynn originally was obtained in the seventh round of the 2007 draft.  He started four games as a rookie but he has since played sparingly.

Next Friday, he’ll become an unrestricted free agent.

Pelissero also reports that cornerback Tramon Williams is expected to receive an “elevated” tender,” as will safety Nick Collins.  Per the report, other restricted free agents who would have been unrestricted free agents in a capped year will be given tenders, but possibly not at the first-round level or higher.  That group includes safety Atari Bigby, cornerback Will Blackmon, guard Daryn Colledge, defensive end Johnny Jolly, fullback John Kuhn, and offensive lineman Jason Spitz.

  1. I like Wynn. He manned up after his rookie year. Wouldn’t play with a hangnail. Lacked dedication. He’s really come on though. Edgar Bennett can reach these guys. Was very tough picking up blitzes before he went down this year. People criticize him for lack of toughness, but this was a legitimate injury.
    Dude has skills, but our Oline never really gave him any holes. I think he was trying to hard too. Didn’t get many chances, because of his past.
    The Packers have 4 guys who are very similar. Wynn is one of them. If they moved Wynn to FB, they’d have two potential Pro Bowl FBs on the roster, with Wynn and Quinn Johnson.
    Dunno if he even makes the team as a HB. We got Grant, Jackson, Lumpkin and Wynn in the mix. But these guys are all “between the tackles” types who aren’t great recievers. The Packers want a speed guy who can catch a screen pass (without tipping it up into the air first) and take it to the house. A guy who can get to the corner.
    These guys all have skills, but we got too many of them, imo.

  2. DeShawn Wynn? Didn’t know he was still on the roster. Hope they can get Williams and Collins signed to a deal.

  3. Talk about a non story. Florio, WTF. With all the combine stuff going on you make a headline out of a 4th stringer not receiving a tender from his team. Come on.

    Cue the Ted Thompson bashing by people who know nothing about the game of football.

    I would think you’d find it hard to type whilst you are getting teabagged by TT.

  5. The Packers don’t really need any of those players, Spencer Havner can play all those positions.

  6. “Aww! Isn’t this cute? The Packer turds get their very own thread!”

    You are certainly correct. It doesn’t take much more than a basic understanding of the game to to see just how lousy Thompson is.
