Packers sign second-round pick Quinten Rollins

AP

The Packers wrapped up a deal with their second-round pick Monday, signing Miami (Ohio) cornerback Quinten Rollins, per the NFL’s personnel notice.

Rollins (5-11, 195) was a collegiate point guard before moving to football in 2014, and a successful transition it was, as he was named the Mid-American Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year after intercepting seven passes. Now, Rollins faces a potentially even more challenging transition — the move from college to the NFL.

In other Packers roster news Monday, the club parted ways with a player who played a key role in one of their defensive touchdowns from a season ago. Second-year defensive end Luther Robinson, who deflected a pass caught and returned for a touchdown in Green Bay’s win vs. Minnesota in October, was waived by the Packers on Monday.

Robinson (6-3, 301) played in five games in 2014 for Green Bay, notching a pair of tackles.

To replace Robinson on the roster, the Packers signed center/guard Andy Phillips, an undrafted rookie free agent from Central Michigan.

  1. Thoughts and prayers are with you Quinten when you go against Wallace or see Peterson coming straight at you.

    Good night, Irene!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Packers are slowly building their teams to win and contend!

    Meanwhile the Queens sign our castoffs so they can hope to taste one of Green Bay’s 13 championships, which the Queens know nothing about!

  3. Trash,just like the rest of the cheesehead defense.you should fit right in.the packers might not even get a chance to have another playoff meltdown this year.

    It is funny seeing this come from a Vikings fan. You know……a fan of a team that had a worse ranked defense than the Packers last year.

    SKOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!

  5. And yet our trash defense plays in the playoffs every year while the NFL’s next dynasty in Minnesota sits at home.

    Gotta love how Vikings fans say the Packers choke (they did no argument from me) but take a look at the Vikings history of choking the list is long and distinguished.

  6. Packers are 9-1-1 against Minnesota since 2010, yet the Vikings fans still keep talking. Hard to be much more pathetic than that. Enough said.

    The Vikings want this guy badly. He has proven he can score touchdowns with Teddy throwing to him! They want him on both offense and defense.

    That was Christian Ponder who threw that pass.

    Actually, the Vikings were ranked 14th and the Packers were ranked 15th in yards allowed. In points allowed, the Vikings were ranked 11th and the Packers were ranked 13th.

    Just in the interest of accuracy.

  9. It would be interesting to see how many yards and points the Packers allowed after they had the game in hand.

    Yes, I realize that the NFC championship seemed “well in hand,” and yes, I realize that the Packers choked (but not as badly as the Vikings have choked, historically speaking).

    But if you look at the games during the regular season, with yards and points allowed when the Packers weren’t in prevent, I’d be fairly certain that the packers would have been a much, much better defense than the Vikings.

    Don’t forget about 1969. Vikings won the NFL Championship. The very next year was the merger and then the AFL was no longer around.

    In the interest of accuracy? Or cherry-picking? Overall, Packers defense was ranked higher than Vikings in the 2014 regular season. I’d do post-season stats as well, but you know…

    However, if we’re cherry-picking stats, I prefer this one:

    World Championships

    Packers: 13
    Vikings: 0

    What’s with teddy Thompson drafting nothing but basketball players this year?

    ##embracethechoke
    =======================

    ##embracethechoke – what is that? The Minnesota Wild’s slogan this year?

  13. @1969nflchampions – sorry man, but in the Superbowl era, it’s not a championship if it isn’t a Superbowl victory. An NFL championship in ’69 without a Superbowl victory has the SAME meaning as an NFC Championship does today – Zilch.

  14. What in the world are you talking about? Leave to a purple troll to try and claim a championship when they lost in a Super Bowl in 70, one of 4 failures to win a championship. Matter of fact the claim to fame is most playoff losses come playoffs since the advent of the Super Bowl. The dynasty of futility lives on for over 53 years, ouch!

    The NFL and AFL were not together then. So, the Vikings won the 1969 NFL Championship. Then lost the Superbowl.

    So, I am not wrong. They won the 1969 “NFL” championship.

  16. Who? Never heard of him and never did any of the draft pundits. Another poor choice by Mr Ted. Of course he will be cheaper then the guys who he trained and nurtured for three four years and let go to save a buck, ya that is smart philosophy.

    I got money that says the guy is a stiff, if not why round two and not round one?

  17. And just think about the year the Vikings last made the Super Bowl. They played in it in January 1977. Star Wars wasn’t even released yet, disco was all the rage, Jimmy Carter was the president, and all of our dads were driving Gremlins and Pinto Station wagons.

  18. Wait for it…Queens fans already talking crap! They’ve won 50+ offseason championships and counting!

    Meanwhile, the Packers have won 13 REAL championships!

    Derp

  19. Ted is easy to figure out. Tight ass is his middle name. The only GM who lets very good players leave and gets nada in return except to save the salary he would have paid them.
    The Vikes get something for all their people by doing it the year before their contract ends.
    Jared Allen had more in the tank but not enough to pass on draft picks for his trade rather than wave goodbye and get nothing. The difference in building a team.

    This year it bites Ted in the Arse as the Vikes with all that talent take the top spot now and for years to come. Packers will be third as the Lions take over second.

    Can’t win with undrafteds all over the place making big mistakes in playoff games.

    Don’t forget about 1969. Vikings won the NFL Championship. The very next year was the merger and then the AFL was no longer around.
    ================================== The NFL Championship in that era is the equivalent of the NFC Championship today. What everyone remembers is that the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl that year.

    The AFL-NFL merger was announced in 1966. With the advent of the Super Bowl, an AFL or NFL league championship was no longer the apex of the season, and any of the league champions in the in the Super Bowl era prior to the dissolution of the AFL are no different than the NFC or AFC champions today.

    Also, the Packers do not claim their NFL Championships of the ’65 and ’66 seasons, and only claim the Super Bowl championships of ’65 and ’65 to reach 13.

    So credit the Packers with two more NFL Championships, making it a tidy 15.

  21. THIS JUST IN: Arodge admits to being an over-inflating cheater. Gets into fights with past teammates and is considred by those who’ve met him to be an enormous A-hole!

    IN OTHER NEWS: Teddy B takes lonely, dateless Kentucky girl to her Junior Prom for no reason other than “it’s the right thing to do.” Agrees to only take fan photos with the Girl included and delivers on his promise to makes her night remarkable.

    Keep signing those baseball and basketball players, I’m sure they’ll defy the odds and be good enough to at least make other team’s practice squads.

  22. Keep living in the past Packer fans because that is all you have your future doesn’t look that great.

  23. I think basketball players are superior athletes to football players. And this guy led his conference in steals, which tells you he has superb lateral movement requiring excellent footwork.

    He’ll do more than fine.

  24. Here’s the difference between what Aaron Rodgers admitted to and what Tom Brady did:

    Aaron Rodgers didn’t go back and change the balls after they were approved by the refs. Brady did.

    Here’s the difference between the Vikings fans and the Packers fans:

    The Packers fans talk smack because they are the most storied franchise in the sport, and Vikings fans talk smack because their team has never won anything, ever.

  25. In the interest of accuracy? Or cherry-picking? Overall, Packers defense was ranked higher than Vikings in the 2014 regular season.
    __________

    What could you possibly be talking about? What other measure are you using besides yards and points? Overall? Are you talking about the internal rankings you have in your head? What measure of overall defense do you have in which the Packers were ranked higher than the Vikings?

  26. Luther Robinson may no longer be a Packer but he never lost to the vikings and had a contribution in defeating them handily.

    It will be interesting to see who next signs Luther Robinson.

  27. Don’t know if he’ll play a lot this year because I think he’s best at safety. Regardless, I have the feeling he’ll be a really good player in a couple of years.

  28. Lol gotta love the Viking trolls! I have to give it to you guys though.. I don’t know if I would be able to tell wishful lies through my finger tips like you guys do! But then again, it’s all in good fun..

    Honestly, Rollins is my favorite pick of the Packers draft. He may not be as quick, or tall as an ideal Dback, but besides those he has everything you would want.. intensity- not scared to hit or throw his body in the air at full speed, good footwork- with his bball experience can take full credit, and his hands and ball awareness are by far his best attributes and are amazing. This guy will be a ball hawk who may fill out a little more like a Nick Collins, (bball players don’t generally like to bulk up as much but now football is his life) he will get stronger and and once he starts to learn tricks of the trade(still learning football but has did excellent for one college year) over time by packers coaches and starting Db’s, watch out!…I really hope this guy keeps his intensity! Go Pack!

  29. “What measure of overall defense do you have in which the Packers were ranked higher than the Vikings?”

    A: The most important games…the last eight.

    I think you meant Teddy R, short for Ruxpin as in Teddy Ruxpin.

  31. If you can’t win a Super Bowl with undrafteds all over the field then which team was it that won three straight road playoff games where undrafted cornerbacks had game changing or clinching interceptions before getting a pick six during their Super Bowl victory when an undrafted DE hit the quarterback’s arm to force it?

    Oh.

    You can win all the drafts you want, but some teams just know how to develop football players.

    ==================================
    From the guy who whines about Packer fans on Vikings threads.

    It’s a shame the Vikings get dominated in football by a team that drafts all basketball players.

  33. And when you Cheeseheads no longer to have Aaron to lean on, whatever will you do? I mean AR isn’t getting any younger or healthier. Like how many concussions equal a permanent head injury? Hard to say. Yet something to think about. Or else you can continue to be arrogant and not think about it all.

    ==================================
    That’s a question every team with an elite or great QB eventually has to answer.

    When they don’t have Aaron to lean on, they will do what all other teams do when their elite QB’s leave or retire; hopefully draft or sign one, or have one in the pipeline.

    Did you really not know the answer to such a simple question?

  35. Yes I know the answer to the question–you’ll get a QB like Ryan Mallett, or Matt Flynn, or Christian Ponder, etc. how will you and the other Cheeseheads handle that? You haven’t had to handle that for 15 years. I think you’ll lose your arrogance really quickly.

  36. I have no idea how cheeseheads will handle it. I’m a Bears’ fan.

    When it comes to arrogance (and a massive dose of insecurity), go no further than Vikings’ fans. Their fruitless rips on a team that dominates them and has a much more successful body of work are laughable. Then, every off-season, we get to here how great the Vikings are going to be. Come December, we get the excuses, then we hear about how all the draft choices are the best, and then the cycle starts again.

    Hall-of-Fame QB, Hall-of-Fame coach (with a losing playoff record), 5 other Hall-of-Famers. 0-4 in Super Bowls. 3 NFC Championship losses.

    Hey, but lots of division championships!
