Anthony Hargrove hints he’s Green Bay bound

AP

Free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove visited the Packers on Friday.

On Sunday, Hargrove provided strong hints on Twitter that he’ll be playing ball in Green Bay next season.

“Loving the Packer nation for all the love already,” wrote Hargrove. “Go Packers go. Goodnight.”

Hargrove had indicated earlier in the day that he was close to a deal with Green Bay. “Not official, but like I said Green and Yellow, Green and Yellow,” he wrote.

Hargrove, 28, is listed at 6-foot-3, 272. While he probably wouldn’t be an every-down player in Green Bay’s 3-4 scheme at that weight, Hargrove could vie for a significant role in the Packers’ pass-rushing nickel package.

The Packers are bracing for the loss of defensive end Mike Neal, who was suspended four games on March 13 for violating the NFL’s policy against performance enhancers.

  1. Part of that paycheck will be going to NFL and he might get a few weeks of unscheduled vacation once NFL gets done with him

  2. Awesome! He’ll have a huge impact as long as he’s on the field and doesn’t get suspended for the bounty games.

  3. Interesting, because this signing could wipe out any compensatory pick the Packers would receive for Flynn.

    The formula is based on lost free agents vs. signed free agents regardless of quality of player or size of contracts (excluding minimum salaried players). The Saturday signing negates the loss of Wells and Hargrove would seem to negate the loss of Flynn. Seeing the formula for compensation is based largley on the contract the lost player signs (and a little on their play) the Packers were probably looking at a 4th round supplementary pick.

    If this turns out to be the case, do Packer fans think this is worth it? They still could receive a lower round (6th or 7th) net loss compensatory pick.

    Sorry I can’t find the site where this guy has done a study on compensatory picks, and using the league rules on it, has come up with picks corresponding to a salary range.

  4. And at 272 pounds, the median weight for all Green Bay residents will remain unchanged upon the arrival of Mr. Hargrove.

  5. Good for him. Anything is better than playing in a wasteland like Seattle where you are forgotten about. And you’re on a team that is a perennial super bowl contender. Rock on Anthony.

  6. Isn’t this the guy that is under investigation over bounty gate that proclaimed “Favre is done!”?.. Seems like they should also be bracing for a suspension of Hargrove as well as Neal. Don’t really want this type of player on my team personally. Imho.

  7. At this point, we just need some warm bodies on the ends of our d-line.

    Hargrove won’t be going to the Pro-Bowl, but he’d certainly be a good start to shoring up the defensive line.

    Could Ted Thompson really sign two non-practice squad players in one offseason? I don’t even know the guy anymore.

    In Ted we trust!

  8. Won’t Hargrove be suspended as well?

    He was a key player in the Saints Bounty Cheating Scam.

  9. Ummm.. it’s “GO PACK GO”, Not “GO PACKERS GO”… you may want to learn that…

    Actually he got it right. In the Packers fight song it is “Go you Packers Go.”

    Got some shots in on Favre. So he sounds good to me!

    _______________

    It’s been 4 years since Favre played for GB, let it go man.

  12. Only in fly-over bayou country. Two weeks ago Packer fans were calling Hargrove a criminal for his part of bountygate and now they’re ready to admit him to the Packer HOF……why not, they have Chester the Molester (Churma’s) bust in their HOF.

    There are 31 people that have gone thumbs down on this post. They all need to lighten up. Pun intended.

  14. Mike Neal: Justin Harrell all over again. Cut him.
    Hargrove: hustle player providing depth and maybe a pass rush.
    Ted Thompson: fixed the problem at center for far less money than Wells, upgraded depth at RDE.
    Question: Ted, why didn’t you just resign Cullen Jenkins? Another day.
    Ted is now free to do what Ted does best on draft day: prowl the back alleys for hungry players who work cheap.

  15. So much for building through the draft? I guess Ted Thompson was the only who took that loss to the Giants seriously!

  16. Ted Thompson is one hell of a General Manager. He had the stones and leadership ability to make an unpopular decision with the fan base and it worked out in the tune of Super Bowl Championship and an MVP quarterback. If he thinks Hargrove can provide help on the line, past indicators suggest he’s right far more often than he’s wrong. I can’t wait until camp.

    Go Pack Go.

  17. Pickett is older, Howard is leaving, Neal is probably a bust, Jarius is an oversized OLB, Wilson & Lawerance are okay rotational players, then we’ve got The big Raji… dang, didn’t know we were that thin on dlinemen.

    Green Bay is “fly-over bayou country”? I’ll give you fly-over, but crack open a dictionary and look up “bayou”.
