The Packers swapped undrafted cornerbacks Wednesday, signing Daquan Holmes while waiving David Rivers with an injury designation. Rivers had not been participating in the team’s OTAs.

Holmes, who played at American International, made first-team Northeast-10 Conference in his final two seasons. The 5-foot-11, 187-pounder made 69 tackles, five pass breakups and five interceptions last season.

He also has return ability, with two return touchdowns, including an 88-yarder last season.

Holmes had a tryout with the Packers during their rookie minicamp last month.

  1. “Talk about rearranging deck chairs.”

    When you’re part of the “Final Four” in the NFL, its not exactly the end of the world. Particularly when you lost your #1 CB, the next 2 were playing injured, and both OLBs were basically one-armed. Worth a camp tryout for a potential return man.

    There are some sinking ships in the NFL, but the GB squad ain’t one of ’em.

  2. ……and despite their defensive shortcomings (last year,) they still own the Vikings.

    What’s with that?

    Vikings have split their games the past two seasons….you do not own the Vikings. Enjoy your upcoming 500 season. A devastated offensive line playing 4th stringers isn’t happening for the Vikings this year so you won’t be handed the division like last year. Remember your 4-6 start last year? That’s the real Pack. The Vikings 5-0 start is the real Vikings. Gonna be a fun year….but we wont’ see many Packer fans on social media once a few games have been played (and lost).

    Oh, it goes much deeper than that. It’s the entire organization, from top to bottom, driven largely by the fan base.

    The Packers’ closest comparable is the Patriots, with the Patriots at the top. The Packers and the Patriots do a lot of things very similarly and both have enjoyed a lot of success. The Patriots have had more success so let’s not twist this. That’s just a fact.

    The Vikings’ closest comparable is the Browns, although things are looking up in Cleveland. Before the new regime came to Cleveland, the Browns and the Vikings did things very similarly, with similar results. That too is just a fact. Now here’s the kicker.

    The Viking fan base is perfectly happy with this. They spend countless hours per day, telling us how great the entire Viking organization is and how the actual winning teams are all wrong and should be run like their giant shipwreck. It’s bizarre.

  6. its the Laquon and Daquan radio talk show on your local radio FM dial.

    playing tracks and talkin’ stats.

  7. The Vikings 5-0 start is the real Vikings.

    Reminder, it is not how you start, it’s how you finish. Granted we didn’t win the SuperBowl, but we did make the playoffs. And the in your mind great Vikings, oh yeah, on the sidelines again.

    I have to give it to you, that was funny!!!
    The vikings O-line has blown for two years. It was just scrubs replacing scrubs. It’s not like any future HOF’ers went down. Plus, I think it was your coveted defense that gave up 30 plus points to the Packers, not the O-line.

    The Pack were without their top 3 DB’s and had to start street free agents. You are saying that was the real Pack?

    I sell third place, again.

  9. Sounds like a lovely place.
