Packers plan to sign Dimitri Nance off Falcons practice squad

It’s not like Packers G.M. Ted Thompson to go looking on the waiver wire for the biggest name available, such as Willie Parker.  Smart move.

It is just like Thompson to sign an unknown running back off another well-run organization’s practice squad.  Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that the Packers will sign Dimitri Nance from the Falcons to help fill-in for Ryan Grant, who is out for the season.

Atlanta reportedly made an effort to keep Nance, but the undrafted rookie from Arizona State chose to leave anyway.  Another smart move.

In Green Bay, only Brandon Jackson and fullback John Kuhn are in front of him.  Atlanta is stocked with veteran backs in Michael Turner, Jerious Norwood, and Jason Snelling.

We don’t think losing Grant is a devastating blow; running backs are replaceable.  But the enthusiasm regarding new starter Brandon Jackson should be tempered by his history of minor injuries in limited playing time.

The Packers were already going to be pass-wacky this year.  It’s going to be even harder for opponents to respect their running game now.

UPDATE:
The team confirmed the signing.  They also announced they signed defensive end Jairus Wynn.  Grant and Justin Harrell were placed on injured reserve.

    “We don’t think Grant is a devastating blow; running backs are replaceable. ”
    Uhh, you just made it sound like the packers season was over in the “grant is out” post. Grant was essentially a practice squad guy who was about to be cut by the giants when the pack gave them a 7th rounder for him.

  2. Nate_O says: Sep 14, 2010 3:28 PM

    I agree with you there Rosenthal. Grant isn’t that big of a blow. He is an average RB on a good offense. He is very replacable.

  3. MVPnis says: Sep 14, 2010 3:28 PM

    He showed a lot of promise int he preseason. Sucks for the Falcons to lose him

    News from the future:
    Dimitri Nance scores one of 5 Packer TD’s in Green Bay 36-17 win over the Vikings Oct 24.
    Vikings fans scream “it was the refs, we beat ourselves, Favre is just rusty, Aaron Rodgers is teh ghey, and we only lost by 19 on the road.. that’s pretty good!” on every available message board.

  5. Canned Gravy says: Sep 14, 2010 3:29 PM

    I knew this an hour ago….C’mon, you guys are supposed to be the first feed for this kind of stuff.
    This will be insurance on Jackson or someone else. Starks will be back in 4 or 5 weeks and may very well get the starting nod. The guy looked solid as hell in PS.
    Can’t imagine Ted doing what Ted doesn’t do. Sign available FA’s. Who knows…he may not have too.

    ================
    OK exactly who is WE in the Rosenthal post? Are you speaking as a PFT writer or Rotoworld?
    Because if the injury makes the Super Bowl prediction no longer meaningful, wouldn’t that equate to the loss of Grant being devastating?

  8. murray22 says: Sep 14, 2010 3:33 PM

    Ryan Grant was an undrafted free agent who was fourth on the Giant’s depth chart until Thompson traded for him ( a sixth round pick). Nance also plays special teams.

  9. Meldog says: Sep 14, 2010 3:35 PM

    Joique Bell was out there.

    Hmm…it’s not like they would have to overpay for Parker. A vet minimum deal would probably do the trick.

  13. packfan4ever says: Sep 14, 2010 3:43 PM

    he’s got dreads therefore he’ll fit in just fine. he’ll be the starter by october.

  14. RC IV says: Sep 14, 2010 3:49 PM

    And if All Day got injured for Minnesota, it wouldn’t hurt the offense?
    Chris Johnson?
    Christ Gregg, you are as dumb as the Packer chesse turds on here.
    Grant was not a game breaker, he was a solid RB. Losing 1200 rushing yards is the 1st chink in the armor Ted.
    But hey, ” We are the packers, we just plug someone else in and roll on, ” right?
    I laughed so hard i almost pissed my pants.
    Not looking good for GB……too bad.

    I’m waiting for Vikings fans to remind us how good they have it with Fumbles All Day and also with Throws Interceptions With a Minute Left in Playoff Games Every Year – two sorry-assed losers, when you really get down to it.

  16. mudduckswithnoringsarejealous says: Sep 14, 2010 3:57 PM

    ted, here is your opportunity to swing a trade for marshawn lynch. the loss of grant hurts, but you can get a good young workhorse pissed off stud potential back in marshawn for pennies on the dollar. give the dude a chance. offer buffablow a 4th rounder or so for him.

  17. Pervy H. says: Sep 14, 2010 4:05 PM

    Any bum could replace Grant. Like true Dead Thompson style, he goes out and gets another nobody…you know…like when he TRIES to draft…

  18. Ambrose says: Sep 14, 2010 4:11 PM

    I liked Ryan Grant. He was a very unassuming but productive day-in day-out guy. He never got the national attention other backs received but he wasn’t far behind them in terms of production either. But nearly every star playing the game was a back-up to somebody else at some point. I hope somebody steps up and takes advantage of their big chance. The Packers will need it. Thye will still be hard to beat…especially if there is a diamond in the rough somewhere. Who knows…maybe Brandon Jackson will benefit from the extended playing time in a primary role (as long as he stays healthy.)

    Not about the money, it’s about the roster spot. Willie Parker is not worth the roster spot even if he was willing to play for a beer brat w/ mustard and kraut! I don’t know anything about Nance, but I do agree Thompson has a decent track record with this kid of acquisition, so here’s to hoping.

  20. Wipackman says: Sep 14, 2010 4:16 PM

    Ryan Grant is a 1200 yard a year back….not spectacular but that is towards the top of the league. Sorry Ryan you are a class player !!! ( For all Viking fans CLASS means ……oh nevermind youll never grasp it )

  27. Hauschild says: Sep 14, 2010 4:45 PM

    Grant wasn’t really a 3rd down back anyway, and opposing defenses don’t have to blitz that inconsistent pass-protecting O-line, so no loss other than experience and a tough runner in Grant.
    The Packers will go exactly like last season – bludgeoning inferior opponents into the ground, but struggling mightily with teams that can consistently put pressure on the QB AND score somewhat consistently, which would be Minnesota and New Orleans. The Packers’ defense still appears very exploitable, which will certainly be apparent in the playoffs. Minnesota will struggle a bit until the receivers get settled – Harvin no longer playing the slot and Cam fitting in. By midseason, the Vikings will be fine, and then will become dominant by post-season, once Rice returns.

    Hey why not? Didn’t an undrafted free agent for the Texans just rush for over 225 yards last week? Grant was just average and nowhere near the key to the Pack’s success — that’s pretty much limited to Rodgers. The real issue is that TT was a dope for not having depth for an injury-prone position with an injury-prone starter.

    Oops I admit I was wrong. He didn’t start against Tenn. and Minn in 2008, but still played. So he has started 31 games and played in 33 since 2008. Hardly injury prone.

    No mason, most packers fans don’t blame refs for the loss against arizona. the team failed as a whole. the defense did not make enough plays to win. the offense didn’t make enough plays to win. Though it was a great game to watch, the packers came up short of the win. We don’t place any single blame on one player like rodgers. he kept us in the game. played admirably. The packers live and die as a team. And the fans still support them.

    Typical idiocy from the Vikings fan base. Yeah, it was all Rodgers’ fault. His 5 TDs and 400+ yards weren’t enough. And he really let his team down in allowing 51 points. He needs to do better on defense.

    1. Losing a starter is never good, but the Packers have to move forward.
    2. Grant was good, but he is replaceable.
    3. Jackson is serviceable and Kuhn might surprise some people. Hard runner who keeps his legs moving. Reminds me of a poor mans Mike Alstott.

I only take the “rumors” Florio and Co. start semi-serious and even that has not made me stop coming back. The ONE thing that has been bothering me are the “ignorant” posts by “fans”….
    I literally have to “weed” out the good ones from the bad ones….. About 15-20% of the posters know their stuff…..
    7. Pervy and his merry bunch of queenies, do you people not work? And i do not mean “owning your own businesses”……. Because you guys sure spend a lot of time on here looking like idiots bashing the Packers….

    Falcons are idiots for letting this kid go. Norwood and Turneroid are injury prone with little chance of returning to previous glory. Falcons should not put more than a year or two into a running back. The big contracts doom the Falcons to 8-8 maybe They should have learned their lesson with the Vick contract. There are no skilled players chomping on the bit for game time. Maybe they should trade for Dwyer.

    People, you cannot simply replace a 1200+ yd back with some practice squad and roster filler players and expect to be just as successful! Common sense would seem to dictate that. Then again, Ted clearly has shown no common sense during his tenure, so I shouldn’t expect his fans to.
    I take it Nance or Jackson will be the league MVP this season then? After all, Ted went and got them, and everyone Ted picks is a star player. Even Bush, even Harrell.
    Back to reality.
    Despite what all of the anti-championship Ted fans will tell you, losing Grant IS a big deal. Us real Packer fans know this.
    Rodgers, while very talented, is not known for getting the ball out quickly. Now that he has no believable play action to help him, along with a Ted Budget OL, expect to see more and more defenders in the backfield.
    Hopefully we are able to overcome this, have the defense step up in a big way, and still make a playoff run. If we fail to, I can at least take a small measure of comfort in knowing that will make this Ted’s last year.

    You’re team has done NOTHING to prove it is even 1/2 as good as last year. Sure you only lost by 5 the world champs, but you looked like crap doing it.
    It won’t be easy to overcome this injury, but it’s not the end of the world.

    Losing Grant doesn’t hurt the Packers that much now, the true test will be when the cold weather moves in, will they be able to pound the ball?

    ACS:
    Not Rodgers fault. But he did fumble on the last play….just like Favre threw the int.
    Rodgers gets a free pass, because see below.
    Favre gets castigated.
    ————-
    I disagree completely. Rodgers doesn’t get a free pass. I’ve said multiple times he should’ve seen the blitzer and either gotten rid of the ball or held onto it. It’s on him.
    At the same time, he did score 5 TDs, so… It’s not like he had 1 TD and 3 turnovers like old man river. Again, Favre isn’t fully to blame for the Vikings’ loss against the Saints. But he’s at the top of the list.

    I am really ashamed to share a favorite team with these Ted worshipers.
    People, you cannot simply replace a 1200+ yd back with some practice squad and roster filler players and expect to be just as successful! Common sense would seem to dictate that. Then again, Ted clearly has shown no common sense during his tenure, so I shouldn’t expect his fans to.
    I take it Nance or Jackson will be the league MVP this season then? After all, Ted went and got them, and everyone Ted picks is a star player. Even Bush, even Harrell.
    ————-
    Then put your money where your mouth is and name a player. WHO SHOULD TED SIGN? Prove him wrong instead of playing the hindsight game and not risking anything.
    Make a prediction. Tell us how badly Brandon Jackson’s going to do. Something. Anything other than being an ignorant one-track know it all.

    It’d be awesome if he was related to Larry Nance….
    But really, does any normal* football fans know anything about the guy?

    Not true. i played with him in hs and know him pretty well. He is a hard runner. hard to bring down w a high motor and a HUGE record setter here in texas.

    I would trade for Lynch personally.. The boat already sailed on Maroney, but you can do almost as well. Dude is talented, angry, and with something to prove. That’s a good guy to have.
    I also would make a move to bolster the O-Line, which would help the running game more than anything else. Even if you give up a first for McNeill or equally disgruntled equivalent, it’s worth it to get the last pieces for a Super Bowl, and Ted has only hit on a first round pick three times in his ten-year career anyway, so not as much of a waste as it would be for other teams.
    As for Jackson? He’s serviceable. Sure handed receiving threat out of the backfield, but not a significant rushing threat by any stretch. I don’t worry for how badly he will do near as much as I worry about Rodgers lasting the full year now.

  71. joseph says: Sep 15, 2010 11:31 AM

    He was a victim of run by committee system where he never got to get in game momentum. the falcons loved him too…

    No worries Packer fans, Super Bowl on lock down. Practice Squad players will take you all the way… 16-0 OMG! Can’t wait to see Karen Rodgers go out next week with a broken finger nail. Enjoy the cheap beer and all the class. I like how you cry babies whine about “class” on a blog. GET A LIFE, oh and try to stop being so fat

    He is not related to Larry Nance… and he will be a VERY SOLID back for gb style. he takes great care of the ball and has since highschool. i remember oklahoma drills w him as the back… he is mojo strong and with a low center of gravity and is fearless. the only thing i worried about is his speed… he isnt chris j. in hs he ran 4.4 something but asu fattened him up.

    Hold your horses Packer Nation. Just a rumor but… Uncle Teddy may be trying to work a trade with Jerry Jones. I’ve read in 2 seperate Packer chat forums that the deal could be Marion Barber and a 7th rd pick for a player and a 4th rd pick. I know the Boys need an o-lineman but who would GB part with??

    Who Dat is not a word either. It’s just an annoying thing that Saint fans think make them look cooler.

    The Eagles wanted Spitz in the off season, but the Packers didn’t want to trade him to them being that they played them 1st week. Maybe him?

    “There is only one game that I truly blame the refs for my whole life of being a Packer fan. Can anyone guess what game that was? Here is a hint. The play I am referencing directly led to the re-implication of instant replay.”

    Off-hand, it has to be the Jerry Rice fumble in the 99 Wild Card game.

    pervy, i was thinking beer cheese could go out with fof…… hopefully fof would be so upset with bcs’s generic tyrone davis packers jersey and bcs would be just as upset with fof’s generic joey browner jersey they’d kill eachother…. or at the very least cut off eachother’s fingers so we wouldn’t have to listen to their moaning and bitching anymore……………. or ya could chaperone the two of them and smack them across the heads with your schlong just before they start falling for eachother?
