Packers sign Loyce Means

The Packers have signed cornerback Loyce Means, the club said Tuesday. Terms were not disclosed.

The 24-year-old Means recently ran the 40-yard dash in less than 4.4 seconds at a workout, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported.

Means went undrafted out of Houston in 2011 and had a preseason stint with the Bills. That same year, he also played for the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Means’ addition gives the Packers seven cornerbacks on the roster, with Tramon Williams, Casey Hayward, Sam Shields, Davon House and Jarrett Bush the top returning veterans.

    Ted Thompson has a knack for finding gems among the rubbish in the CB market. I know some of the CBs on the roster now and/or in 2010 where undrafted free agents.

    LOL? Super Bowl?

    TOO Ambitious, perhaps?

  4. millertime20 says: Apr 2, 2013 7:22 PM

    He can for sure cover megatron lol nottt! They need all 7 corners

  5. bordner says: Apr 2, 2013 7:29 PM

    He probably won’t stick, but I’m sure this move didn’t cripple them financially. I believe Tramon Williams took a similar route to the Packers, and he was a big reason why they won XLV. You never know…

    How will they be able to pay Rodgers after such an extravagant signing???

  7. aaronitout says: Apr 2, 2013 7:37 PM

    Considering Tramon Williams and Sam Shields were both undrafted I would say this is a good sign. Means Island!

    Free Agents being over paid will not happen in Green Bay. The Packers look for talent without needing to break the bank. Keep the humorous replies coming.

    Aint this April 2nd?

    Eight mediocre/crappy cornerbacks<1 bonafide starter. See Lions season last year for details.

    When you factor in the fact that the refs let GB corners grab and push and basically give them free reign on any and all illegal contact these corners will have a chance to aspire to be barely functional.

    Oskee wee wee. Oskee waa waa. Holy Mackinaw. Tigers! Eat ‘em raw

    I haven’t seen Loyce at the gym in a while. I wondered where he went…

    Sounds like your fantasy Lions record for the 2013-14 season.

  13. gbmickey says: Apr 2, 2013 8:09 PM

    A Lions fan making fun of a team being able to cover a receiver? Are you serious?

    Packer pass defense did pretty well, look it up.

    This reminds me of when Viking and Bear fans laughed because Ted signed undrafted Sam Shields. Now Sam has a starting gig and a ring.

    There is a reason that Ted has won 2 Executive of the Year awards, while lesser teams are still trying in vain to win their first Superbowl. He understands football, and they don’t.

    It doesn’t matter who plays corner for the Packers. Cutler will throw them the ball 4 to 5 times per game, Sidearm Stafford will be lucky if his glass frame will make it past week 3, and Ponder can’t even throw it in the air from the hash mark to the sidelines.

    6 wins easily for the Packers in the division.

    Should be another 12-14 win season, and if they stay healthy, a good march to the Super Bowl.

  16. whatjusthapped says: Apr 2, 2013 8:16 PM

    If he even makes the final 53, he will be an upgrade over any Viking CB just because he is on the field and not in jail.

  17. farvite says: Apr 2, 2013 8:18 PM

    Cute little signing.

    .. 10-6 here we come.

  18. banlarson says: Apr 2, 2013 8:20 PM

    Packer fans: “Great job by Thompson, he’s a genius. Great first signing in FA market. He’ll be a pro bowler for us”.

    Rest of the world: “Who?” Oh, a CFL guy they can pay $24.99 a game. Nice job.

  19. farvite says: Apr 2, 2013 8:24 PM

    Losing Jennings and Woodson hurts bad.

    This team isn’t on the same level as they were in 2010.

    No Sup (Bowl) for you!!!!

  20. claymath52 says: Apr 2, 2013 8:31 PM

    Hey I wonder if James Starks will give up his number 44, burp.

  21. garyman1 says: Apr 2, 2013 8:36 PM

    Interesting…. the one question that keeps popping up in my mind is “who in the wide, wide, world of sports is Loyce Means ?”

    Because we all know that the Lions have won as many Superbowls as the Vikings

  23. farvite says: Apr 2, 2013 8:46 PM

    Natrone Means wasn’t available?!!

    “He can for sure cover megatron lol nottt!”

    Calvin certainly puts up some impressive statistics. Too bad he can’t win games.

    It’s true! The NFL has specified certain criteria regarding the treatment of the Packers.
    To wit:
    1) Referee and back judge must spring for the Packers’s pizza of their choice after the game. All executives and practice squad guys are eligible to chow.
    2) All replays are to go the Packers’ way unless it kinda looks like the refs might take some grief.
    3) All opponents must emulate the Lion’s play to ensure the Packers have a somewhat decent chance of winning.

    On a lighter note, Loyce Means will live forever in the annals of theHall of Name. It rolls off the tongue and is pleasing to the eye.

    Will he run for cover when Peterson gets lose in the secondary !!

  27. purpblooded says: Apr 2, 2013 9:46 PM

    Just checking to see if any Viking fans troll and post on Packer threads, like so many Packer fans do on Viking threads………..Loyce Means Buissiness!

  28. crownofthehelmet says: Apr 2, 2013 11:44 PM

    wmelch, please stop with the humor attempts, you’re really bad at it. Try keeping it simple, like:

    I’m not sure what this signing means.

  29. 15to12 says: Apr 3, 2013 11:47 AM

    THIS IS IT!!! The Reggie white signing of this year!

  30. deltaoracle says: Apr 3, 2013 4:20 PM

    I think eightandeightlions meant to say “Seattle wide receivers” when he wrote about GB corners pushing. Easy to get them mixed up – like the replacement refs did.

  31. jhtobias says: Apr 3, 2013 10:35 PM

    Oh Viking Fan stop being bitter just because you didn’t sign Frank Zombo.. I know the queens still have a fetish for signing ex packer players.. You can still sign woodson and get your fix since the Jennings signing is wearing off..
