Packers waive Makinton Dorleant

Cornerback Makinton Dorleant is no longer a member of the Packers.

According to multiple reports, Dorleant was waived by the team on Tuesday with a failed physical designation. He spent most of last season with a hamstring injury, but was activated from injured reserve late in the season. He then tore his ACL after playing in four games with the team.

Dorleant’s chances of staying with the Packers probably weren’t helped by a March arrest in Iowa. Dorleant was cited for interference after an altercation at a Cedar Falls bar that also included Bears cornerback and Dorleant’s Northern Iowa teammate Deiondre’ Hall. Hall was cited for disorderly conduct, public intoxication and interference.

The other 31 teams will have a chance to add Dorleant to their roster, but the combo of injury and the recent arrest may leave him looking for work for a while.

    If you cant make the horrible Packers defense it might be time to retire!

    And yet, the Packers have beaten the Vikings 12 out of the last 15 times they’ve played each other.

    How is that possible?

  3. Stupid trolls….regardless of which side of the river you live on, please slink back under the I 94 bridge and hibernate until September at least.

  4. Ladies and gentlemen, the ariani screen name is #1 of the 15 log on’s by a viking troll we see on display with the first two comments in this thread. You will likely see others to follow as the conversation continues. See how many you can count.

    Aaron “crybaby” Rodgers, and the team that over the past 30+ years has been the consensous leader every year of “gift calls” that either negate the oppositions positive plays, or helps their offense succeed after it was originally shut down on given plays…..Well you wanted the answer to the question. That aside, no wonder the guy got the boot, after all, their secondary is 3 deep in great talent…..uhh, their secondary is 2 deep in great talent…….uhhh, oh who are we kidding, they ‘re bad back there and we all know it. LOL!

    The Packers have CBs?
    //////////////////////////////////////

    CB’s? No, they use use text messaging and email just like everyone else. Just because a few of their 13 NFL Championships are from the 60’s doesn’t mean they haven’t evolved from the use of citizen band radios.

    How old are you?

    Sigh

    …packer fans…smh

  8. G-Mo showed potential, in a position where he will likely be used when players like Cobb Adam’s and Nelson, may get banged up retire, or be cut loose.

    There is NO reason to let this guy be on the roster as there is 0 benefit to the Packers.

    Spielman on line 1…

    To laugh, maybe.

    Packer CBs are as valuable as Packer stock.

    Nothing to see here at all.

    The really sad part about this is that I have the feeling that you honestly think this is true. Just like I’m sure you also believe the world is flat, we never went to the moon, and Bush was responsible for 9/11.

  11. 1966-67 SB Champions had the great Ray Nitschke
    1996 SB Champion had Reggie White
    2010 SB Champion had Charles Woodson
    The past 7 years gb has had only the PED Clay
    This isn’t rocket science, but your gm thinks it is. Get some defensive players and win the SB before Rodgers is gone.

    It’s more accurate to say that only a few (2) of their championships occurred after the use of CBs, the telegraph, and stone tablets were the main form of communication.

  13. If I were a Viking fan, I wouldn’t be comment too soon, there is a better than even chance that Spielman will sign him. Not because he can play at the NFL level, that has little to nothing to do with Spielman’s signings, but because he plays CB and has a habit of getting arrested, much like the other Viking CB’s except this time Spielman doesn’t have to spend a 2nd rounder on the guy.

  14. Hello Makinton,. This is Rick Spielman over here to the west of you in Minnesota, I think you would fit right in on our team, after all this usually is the 1st stop after a Packer isn’t good anymore. When can you be here? We’ll give you 5mil a year just because you played for the Packers. I know that’s a lot more than they were paying but we just love having all you cut Packers on our team.

  15. I’ll admit the packers defense is horrid no doubt.. But at least they don’t have the most overhyped defensive player in the league. Xavier Rhodes is the most overrated player bar none.

    holds on every play and when he doesn’t hold gets burned .. That dude is the most hyped up player in the league .. that will be funny when the dumb queens waste their cap space on the overrated one

  16. I agree the defense needs to be beefed up, but the most recent SB the Packers won Matthews was runner up in DPOY. So its not like Charles did it all.

    If this whole thing isn’t “rocket science” why have you not given ONE name for the Packers to sign while your bashing TT.

    Everyone wants to point out flaws but no one wants to point out a way to fix it.

    Interesting take on Xavier Rhodes.

    Its much different than NFL.com as well as other reputable organizations ranking him as a Top 10 CB.

    But hey…keep explaining why he isnt.

  18. Xavier Rhodes is a good corner, I will give you that. He can’t cover a healthy Jordie Nelson, but he is still good. If anyone thumbs this down I will know you are a vikings homer who didn’t watch the second game the teams played against each other last year.

    That reminds me of the soup cans and kite string the overrated Steelers were using for sideline communication when the Packers rolled them in the SuperBowl several years ago.

  20. it’s hard for corners to cover for 8-9 seconds while the oline gets away with blatant holding.

    It only looks like the Packers O-line is holding, because the Vikings D-line is so slow.
