Packers sign nine players to futures contracts

We usually don’t report on “futures contracts” but it’s a slow week in the NFL, and Packers fans probably enjoy hearing anything about their team as they bask in the glow of a Super Bowl title.

So here goes: The Packers signed nine players to futures contract on Thursday: guard Adrian Battles, tackle Chris Campbell, safety Michael Greco, linebacker Cardia Jackson,  safety Anthony Levine, wide receiver Antonio Robinson, defensive tackle Jay Ross, wide receiver Chastin West and linebacker/defensive end Albert Young.

Eight of the players came from Green Bay’s practice squad players; Levine was signed off  the ever-popular “street.”

  1. Not a huge deal, but Levine wasn’t signed off the ‘street’ – he was on the Practice Squad all season and the first couple of weeks of the playoffs before he was placed on IR.

  2. LB Curtis Young was overheard talking to his wife…

    “Hon, get the building permits for our dream home! All I need to do is beat out Clay Matthews, AJ Hawk, Nick Barnett, Desmond Bishop, Brad Jones, Brandon Chillar, Brady Poppinga, Frank Zombo, Erik Walden, Robert Francois and Diyral Briggs plus whoever they draft and I’m in!”

    The way the injuries hit us last year, I wouldn’t be surprised if he does play.

  3. @ BleedingSilverAndBlack – Are you seriously going to complain about injuries this year when comparing your team to the Packers?? Come on, that’s laughable.

    A healthy Saints team will beat the Packs every time.

    Maybe last season. Not this season! A healthy Packer’s team trumps a healthy Saints team because they have one things the Saints didn’t have this year…a balanced and consistent defense.

    Just means that 7 or 8 of them will be charged with assault in the future.

    I don’t think kicking the snot out of the opposing team in a SuperBowl is a chargeable offense.

    Because of a reference to an “assault in the future,” it was a speculative statement…regarding a likely “future” SuperBowl, not this one. I think the the Steelers played tough and are a very good team and had many chances to turn it their way.
