Anthony Hargrove hints he’s Green Bay bound

Anthony Hargrove 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.

    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

    Lames.

    Who the hell is Mike Neal?

  5. tramonisland says: Mar 26, 2012 2:37 AM

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

    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.

    Love these Graveyard shift updates.

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

  9. realitycheck21 says: Mar 26, 2012 2:48 AM

    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.

  10. bealeman says: Mar 26, 2012 2:57 AM

    Bring it. That, and the first 3 picks on D this year. Tired of drafting TEs early and surviving on 7th-round DEs all the time.

  11. cliffordc05 says: Mar 26, 2012 4:21 AM

    Hargrove did a nice job for Seattle as a situational defensive lineman. Not sure how much time he would get with the addition of Jones.

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

    Typical douche Packer….

  14. bagadeez04 says: Mar 26, 2012 5:58 AM

    Don’t know much about this guy, though I’ve heard his name before.

  15. nostalgicsound says: Mar 26, 2012 6:07 AM

    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.

    I got nutin.

    As a Bills fan, let’s just re-title this piece: Trouble on it’s way to Green Bay.

    Nice move.

  20. theghostoflombardi says: Mar 26, 2012 6:40 AM

    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!

  21. thepvyharvin says: Mar 26, 2012 7:02 AM

    Told you he was perfect the the Packers,,,,probably be their best D linemen!

  22. robf2010 says: Mar 26, 2012 7:05 AM

    Not too smart to replace one suspended player with another.

  23. zn0rseman says: Mar 26, 2012 7:06 AM

    Won’t Hargrove be suspended as well?

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

  24. thehatefulnerd says: Mar 26, 2012 7:10 AM

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

  25. pencilmonkeymagic says: Mar 26, 2012 7:14 AM

    He was a solid run defender in Seattle, helping them move up to #9 overall.

    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.”

  27. sonopazzo6 says: Mar 26, 2012 7:52 AM

    Wish the Eagles had kept him last year……still has a little “dog” in him!

    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.

    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.

  34. The Prophet says: Mar 26, 2012 10:17 AM

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

  35. dv5454 says: Mar 26, 2012 10:29 AM

    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.

  36. thankheavenfornumberseven says: Mar 26, 2012 11:11 AM

    How do you “brace for the loss” of a guy who has done exactly nothing since being drafted in the second round? Another great draft pick by The Genius.

  37. stavreafavre says: Mar 26, 2012 3:48 PM

    I guess it’s fair to say that the Packers are pretty desperate on the DL.

  38. axespray says: Mar 26, 2012 6:44 PM

    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”.
