Daryn Colledge signs tender with Packers

A couple of months ago Green Bay Packers restricted free agent guard Daryn Colledge disputed reports that he was “furious” at his tender offer with the Packers. But while Colledge might not have been furious about it, he wasn’t happy enough about it to sign on the dotted line.

Until today.

Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press Gazette reports that Colledge showed up at Lambeau Field today, signed his restricted free agent tender and started workouts. The tender is a one-year, $1.759 million contract.

Colledge started all 16 games for the Packers in 2009.

    One more year of underachievement from a guy who has been given more than enough chances to prove himself and has done squat.

  2. nerd says: May 10, 2010 4:35 PM

    Now he just needs to make the team.

  3. GirthyOne says: May 10, 2010 4:36 PM

    “Furious” Daryn is nothing more than an adequate or less fill in at guard until a real one shows up (someday).
    The horrid drafting that Thompson had done with the offensive line of the Packers includes this bum and the other bum drafted with him, Spitz. Both should have been out of jobs and replaced in the draft or free agency, but ‘ole rocket brain Ted just can’t seem to get it done.

    Great job guys! Way to get him signed!

    He has a couple of younger brothers who are even better than he is, but daryn college.

  6. JimmySmith says: May 10, 2010 4:46 PM

    He obviously watched the Packers pick up two O-Line men in the draft. I will be surprised if the Packers don’t trade him prior to the start of training camp.

  7. JJCheesehead says: May 10, 2010 4:49 PM

    they should ship him back to the north pole…..

  8. Gregjennings85 says: May 10, 2010 4:50 PM

    I heard a rumor that we may deal Darryn Colledge for Philadelphia draft pick OLB Ricky Sapp.
    I won’t miss DC’s play on the field, but I will miss his name, which, used in congruence with a NORTHERN ‘Sconnie’ (Wisconsin) accent can be magic:
    Dickie:
    “Hey der, Dale…you used ta’ have all dem’ kids runnin’ around here…where dey at?”
    Dale:
    “Darryn Colledge.”

  9. TheBaySay says: May 10, 2010 5:03 PM

    A couple of things to look for regarding whether the Pack will be better this year: Is Colledge still starting? Is Jarrett Bush still on the roster? If the answer is “No” in both cases, they should be a better team.

  10. Johnnyb612 says: May 10, 2010 5:04 PM

    I guess the good news is that he signed on a Monday. Now he won’t get the chance to ruin my Friday. Since Mondays usually suck anyways, this has to be the best case scenerio. Also, I have this weird feeling that the Packers are about to get another 7th round draft pick.

  11. Gregjennings85 says: May 10, 2010 5:06 PM

    Ethan. Man alive. I was on that joke when we drafted him.
    Noooooooooooooooooooooo!

    Unfortunately for you, he won’t be sliding over from guard to play LT if Clifton gets injured, so the real loser in this is Jared Allen. His ability to pad stats against a 2nd and 3rd string LT’s (College/Lang) in 2 games won’t be possible now that they have 2 true LT’s between Clifton and Bulaga.

  14. wrath4771 says: May 10, 2010 5:40 PM

    Colledge will get cut. No way does anyone trade for him. On a line that takes a lot of grief, he is the worst of the bunch.

  15. footballrulz says: May 10, 2010 5:45 PM

    He’s still over paid–he’ll be gone before the season starts
    Oh wait, TT’s still there (sigh).

  16. Schau3r says: May 10, 2010 5:57 PM

    @GirthyOne
    Are you stupid? The Packers are one of the best teams in the league. Ted rebuilt the team from the ground up. Daryn Colledge sucks, but the line is not as bad as everyone thinks it is. Uniformed football fans should just not speak.

  17. nerd says: May 10, 2010 6:02 PM

    TT’s done a good job of getting linemen. Since MM stopped requesting the “smaller, quicker” guys, anyway. TJ Lang, Josh Sitton, Bulaga, for instance.
    Colledge didn’t get to practice at LT last year, because they wanted to go with “continuity,” rather than the normal musical chairs scenario. Then he got thrown to the wolves when Cliffy missed his inevitable 4 games. This got into Colledge’s head.

  18. GB3Pack4 says: May 10, 2010 6:02 PM

    Seems like a nice guy, a good worker, flexible, congenial, articulate, but not a good enough player. If it’s true that he was furious re his tender, it seems the chances the patient and/or desperate Pack gave him, might have led him to overvalue his own play.

  19. Pervy Harvin says: May 10, 2010 6:07 PM

    Great news!!! The Vikings D Line love Daryn Colledge !! He is the turnstyle that lets them play Bukkake with Sharon Rodgers.

  23. packerhater28 says: May 10, 2010 6:35 PM

    If everyone in the world took a shit at the same time it would still smell better then a packer fan.Packer fans are just the laughing stock of the human race, not unlike the kids you used to point your finger and laugh at in school.

  24. murray22 says: May 10, 2010 6:36 PM

    Colledge is a tweener. He doesn’t have the height, agility, arms or feet to play left tackle and doesn’t have the size or strength to play guard. I remember one draft guide calling him “fake tough” and “undersized” the year he was drafted. They were right. At his best, Colledge is a finese left guard suited only for the zone blocking scheme, nothing more.
    I will be seriously disappointed if he is in the starting lineup this year. Marshall Newhouse is already a better prospect.
    Go Pack!

  25. Wipackman says: May 10, 2010 7:20 PM

    I see a trade developing
    DC to the Los Angeles Vikings for WASSSSSAAAA WASSSSSAAAA WANNNNGA …….. or thw WZZZINATOR or Demitrius Underwood or ( sorry I am getting tired ) but you get it ……the list goes on.

  26. Pervy Harvin says: May 10, 2010 7:34 PM

    AWESOME!!! More Bukkakke for Rodgers by the Vikings defense!

  27. PackFaninPackLand says: May 10, 2010 7:35 PM

    $1.759 million ??? Gee, that’s about one dollar for every sack he allowed last year.
    Truth is, Colledge should thank his lucky stars that he’s even in the league and not asking people if they “want fries with that”.
    On his BEST day he is mediocre. BEST DAY !
    Good thing there was no signing bonues as I see him getting cut or traded for a 7th round pick or a sack of used footballs about August 30th.

  28. nerd says: May 10, 2010 7:55 PM

    He’ll get cut and the Vikings will scoop him up, right away.

    Although it would not surprise me if Jared Allen would enjoy that, I am also not shocked to hear the homosexuality coming from Minnesota’s fans. They go hand in hand just like K-Y and “Childo.”

  31. packerhater28 says: May 10, 2010 8:28 PM

    Only the truly retarded or those who don’t know any better would ever admit to being a Packer fan.Then again some say they are just to get a reaction out of everyone else, because let’s be honest, no one in their right mind could like such a team.

  32. Johnnyb612 says: May 10, 2010 9:25 PM

    Packerhater28,
    very creative post. I think the time has come where we can think about taking you out of special Ed classes and give you a shot at some true life classes. Congrats, and tell Daryn that all he has to do is apply himself… Just like you! You really deserve this, and your parents must be very proud.

  33. Pervy Harvin says: May 10, 2010 9:39 PM

  34. gnarlswoodson says: May 10, 2010 10:32 PM

    man daryn colledge swallows a bigger load than packerhater28, seriously.
    and everyones right, sharon rodgers was running for his life against the vikings last year behind that line, which will be much improved this year.
    against the vikings in 2 games of CONSTANTLY running for his life, rodgers threw for almost 700 yards and 5 tds. you viking fans are petrified of the 900 yards and 9 tds rodgers will throw on you this year, its ok i understand.
    pervy, I knew something was missing from PFT good to see youre back for the moment pal. fishing 6 days a week, what a life! I figured maybe you had a job or something, you know?

    CraigJennings83:
    Um, your little whigger thing doesn’t work for ALL Vikings fans. That is a pet name Super has for Pa Pa Pa Pa Pervy!
    What, you pissed off that the Vikings fan managers have kept you on making fries for 5 years?
    Our CB’s suck? Yeah well the DL didn’t and the CB’s were good enough that the Vikes beat the Pack twice last year.
    Typical Packer fan nonsense, get beat twice by the Vikings, finish in 2nd place (1 game in loss column, but actually 2 behind because of head to head) give up 51! points and nearly 600 yards( 150 on the ground to one of the worst run offenses in the leauge) in a WC game, then come on here and talk smack.
    It never ends with turds like you.
    Next thing you know you’ll be dusting of the trophies again. That’s the only argument you turds have when the Vikings are better isn’t it?
    I;m sure the ACTUAL members of the Packers team take solace in the fact that teams from 14-43 years and beyond have won titles…….yeah, right, they want thier own.
    Sad thing is, as long as TT is there, it ain’t gonna happen.
    Long live Steady Teddy!!!
    Craig,
    Arod just called, apparently, you swallow.
    Carry on.

    @packerhater
    Your inelligence absolutely amazes me. Does that suff just come to you naturally or do you have to take time to make it up? In the words of one of your own Viking brethren, Chicken, the next time you are in the bathtub or shower, introduce your fork to your toaster. Oh, and btw, just so you’ll understand the concept of this manuever, don’t forget to plug in the toaster first.
    @chicken
    That was last year bud. Can’t bring up the past or you’ll have us all talking about our 14+ year old trophies, as you mentioned. I’m not saying Super is right about TT being a master drafter and all that but I am looking forward to this season. May have a surprise or two in store for you. ‘Specially if Favre actually has the balls to play in that season opener. (Which I’m sure he will).
    How’s the fishing Perv? (For those of you that may not know fishing IS Pervy’s job).

  41. chickenragnarpartdeux says: May 11, 2010 12:24 PM

    Exactly Rulz:
    Last year.
    But, if you are going to hold me to that…..then you have to hold CraigJennings 84 to that also.
    Our best CB was hurt LAST year.
    We didn’t have Shepard and Cook LAST year either.
    Super is never right, especially about TT.
    If the Pack do not win a Playoff game this year, I think he is gone.
    I don’t think they did enough to fix thier OL, Clifton most likely, doesn’t fo injury free.
    Arizona exposed a huge hole in that defense also, one that Capers could not seem to fix.
    I am by no means predicting gloom and doom for the Pack or a SB for the Vikes, I just do not think that GB has what it takes to wrestle the Division away from Minnesota yet.

  42. footballrulz says: May 11, 2010 1:07 PM

    Good points all, chicken. I cannot see Clifton and/or Tauscher making the year uninjured. Hopefully Bulaga (isn;t that some sort of caviar)can step up and fill a hole if needed. Barbre & College both need to go for a veteran of some sort but we all know that ain’t TT’s style.
    I’m just thinking TT may have lucked up and got a sleeper or two this year and they come up big.
    GB”s defense had a hard time against Warner, Favre & even Big Ben although that game was still close. Just hoping the 2nd year in the 3-4 allows Capers to have some answers in making defensive changes in game. I haven’t heard much about Harris but I hope he comes back healthy and can step up in big games.
    I also think one of McCarthey’s biggest problems is his inability to make in game adjustments. Get’s away from the run game way too quickly. Hoping some of that changes.
    I think GB/Vikes probably split this year, provided Favre comes back (which he is) and survives game one. I know I’m gonna be watching that one for sure. At the very least it should be an interesting year.

    “give up 51! points and nearly 600 yards( 150 on the ground to one of the worst run offenses in the leauge) in a WC game, then come on here and talk smack.”
    Oh yeah like the Vikings did any better against the Cardinals. They were suppose to be a ‘Super Bowl’ team but they came into Arizona and got the asses kicked on national TV. Just weeks later they got torched by Matt Moore in front of yet another national television audience, in which Moore looked like Peyton Manning torching that stellar Vikings pass defense.
