On Tuesday, the Green Bay Packers reportedly took a look at a kick returner for the city’s Indoor Football League team.

According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the club worked out returner/defensive back B.J. Hill of the Green Bay Blizzard.

According to the Blizzard’s website, the 27-year-old Hill has 13 return touchdowns in four seasons with the club. According to McGinn, Ross has never signed with an NFL club. Ross played collegiately at Ball State.

The Packers released returner Jeremy Ross on Monday.

The Packers also worked out undrafted rookie running back Orwin Smith, undrafted rookie defensive back Darren Woodard and veteran nose tackle Chigbo Anunoby on Tuesday, McGinn reported.

    Yes, we “stopid” Bears fans will be jealous when this guy rips off the “deavin hestar” record, indeed.

    Is this a joke?

    I would like to hope it is a joke. I think is may be more of a representation of the left’s woefully under-educated masses. What exactly are we three peating? I cannot think of anything in recent memory that would allow a 3 peat. Is it talking about consecutive wins over the Chicago Bears?

    We just didn’t have the right pre game meal and we were a little cranky. Wrong refs too. Week 5 we’ll get the right burgers from Curly’s, the right officials, and finally have a win that’s rigged for us. We are america’s team

    Sure looks like a joke. I’m a Packers fan and I’m sorry to say that this guy is probably one also. Unfortunately what he says is pretty “stopid”.

    Why not just put Cobb back there again? Risk of injury?

    This just in. Ted Thompson has decided to try out a high school student as a kick returner. The student has agreed to free gift certificates for MacDonalds after each game and his dad can travel coach class to the away games.

    In addition, Ted found a 300 pound out of work sumo wrestler and is trying him out at left tackle. The wrestler will be trained in taking down anyone in front of them so Rogers can at least get a pass off before being pumeled to the ground. In return the wrestler gets three free tickets to Japan in the off season.

    This just in. Ted has received numerous calls from free agents and his reply: no thanks we don’t want talent that we have to actually pay for.
