Packers sign Quinton Dial

The Packers signed linebacker Ahmad Brooks last week and they’ve added another former member of the 49ers defense.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Packers have signed defensive lineman Quinton Dial. Dial was released by the 49ers over the weekend and paid the Packers a visit on Monday.

Dial started 26 games for the 49ers over the last two seasons, but was left without a spot in the lineup after the team transitioned to a 4-3 base defense under new coordinator Robert Saleh.

The Packers run a 3-4, so Dial should find that to be a more comfortable place to make a bid for playing time. Dean Lowry, Mike Daniels, Kenny Clark, Ricky Jean Francois, Christian Ringo and Montravius Adams were the defensive linemen to stick through the cut to 53 players in Green Bay.

  1. So now that we see the Packers ate not the deepest team I wonder if that also means that their offensive line is not the best on the NFL and that their WRs are not unstoppable? Hmmmm. Maybe even the Packers are already the NFC representative in this year’s Super Bowl. Do you think Mark Murphy knows this yet?

  2. The bottom line? The Packers are better than the Vikings, and they have been for the better part of a decade. Nothing the Vikings have done tells me this year will be any different. The trolls know this to be true, and we’ve never doubted it. It’s another crap sandwich the trolls will have to eat, but they’ve developed the taste over time.

    Bon appetit’

  3. It makes a lot of sense.
    Certainly more sense than paying Boone millions of $ to play golf.
    Heidi fans make the first five comments, anxious to do some talking before the season starts.

  4. This can only add to the depth of this team. Any time you bring in an experienced player that is just a little bit better than the guy that made room for him, you get deeper.

    That’s how the Packers were able to go deep in the postseason several years in a row despite having unexpected injuries to key personnel. That’s how you do it. Take the Vikings for example; they too had unexpected injuries to key personnel last year. They tanked. The Packers made it to the NFCCG before hitting a wall. They could’ve tanked before the postseason, like the Vikings, but they didn’t. They didn’t…….because of depth.

    One of these years they will use that depth to win another SuperBowl trophy, like the depth that enabled them to win SuperBowl XLV with a bunch of no-names. The Packers do it as well as any team in the NFL.

    Just imagine how much more dominant the Packers would be over the Vikings if they could avoid that annual fate? Maybe this is the year.

    You said the vikings had the best defense in football yet you trade for a DB? Irony impaired I see.

    Depth?! Is that Rodgers’ new nickname or something? After listening to you guys blame the blowout in Atlanta on having too many injuries in the secondary, now you’re trying to tell me that you had great depth? Oh no, now those plucky little fill-ins were doing great but they just “hit a wall.” They were terrible! You can’t claim that you have great depth and at the same time blame the blowout on injuries.

    I certainly can! The NFCCG was brutal, no doubt, but without the depth they wouldn’t have made it that far. Without the depth it would’ve been “Vikings-ish.” Stuff happens in NFCCG games. I heard of one favored team losing 41-0 in an NFCCG. Did you ever hear of such a thing? Stuff happens. Having depth doesn’t guarantee a SuperBowl victory, even though that is the bar Viking trolls set for the Packers, with their own being “we sure have bad luck.”

    Going into last year’s playoffs the Packers were using Ladarius Gunter as their #1 corner.
    Gunter made the team as Green Bay’s 6th DB out of their 2016 training camp.
    As Ted Thompson signed street free agents to supplement the Packer’s secondary, Gunter was called on with the task of covering the likes of ODB, Dez Bryant and Julio Jones.
    Though it was a struggle, they still made it all the way to the NFC Championship game.
    Most NFL teams didn’t even have enough depth to make it to the playoffs.
    If you honestly can’t understand this, then I can’t help you.

  9. Again, “depth” is just another way of saying “Rodgers.” Maybe if you lost him for the season, we would see what kind of depth you have.

    Viking fans don’t set the Super Bowl as the bar for the Packers, Packer fans do. Look around. Every year you guys are predicting Super Bowl. This year, your team president did it. Nothing seems to dampen your optimism. Then when it doesn’t happen, we get “stuff happens.”

    What is the difference between “we sure have bad luck” and “stuff happens”?

    I still think Aaron Rodgers had more to do with the Packers going to the NFCCG than did Ladarius Gunter. I see Bryant had 9 receptions for 132 yards and 2 TDs and Jones had 9 receptions for 180 yards and 2 TDs. If you actually think Gunter was an example of great depth, I can’t help you.

  11. Ricky Jean Francois is another failed prospect who was drafted by the 49ers. it shows that the Packers are far from having a strong enough D to reach the Super Bowl.

  12. Depth is what got the Packers to the NFCCG, with a beat-up squad. Having depth can run out if injuries continue to mount, which they did. Having depth is no guarantee for a SuperBowl victory. Lack of depth is what got the Vikings to 8-8 after starting 5-0. You had an All-Pro, Pro-Bowler, NFL record-setter under center. Should we start calling them the Minnesota Bradford’s?

    Depth was the difference between the two teams last year. Look at those teams. Understand what happened and how they got where they did.

    You’ll have a better understanding of depth.

    Wait a minute are you saying filling out a defense with players waived from other teams does not equal deepest team in the NFL? You must not be a Packer fan.

  14. So to summarize Stellar’s arguments over the last couple weeks:

    1. The Packers suffer more injuries than any other team in the NFL (debunked).

    2. The Packers have greater depth than any other team in the NFL.

    So what’s the problem? Why aren’t you winning the Super Bowl every year, as you predict you will every year?

  15. Wait a minute are you saying filling out a defense with players waived from other teams
    ——-
    50% of the players in the NFL have been waved by another team. Not sure why Viking fans think this is such a bad thing? Lots of good players get waived due to salary and other considerations. Doesn’t mean they can’t play.

    Now you’re sounding like cheesey.

    Fake News.

  17. The bottom line? The Packers are better than the Vikings, and they have been for the better part of a decade. Nothing the Vikings have done tells me this year will be any different. The trolls know this to be true, and we’ve never doubted it. It’s another crap sandwich the trolls will have to eat, but they’ve developed the taste over time.

    Bon appetit’

  18. they’re signing starters from one of the worst defenses in the league last year, that’s a bold strategy Cotton lets see how it works out for them.

    31-0

  19. Teds not as stupid as he sounds during press conferences. He knows that if he retires with only one ring while having Rogers on the team it will haunt his career forever. With that in mind, he is making moves like a man that will retire soon About time.

  20. I wish that we didn’t have to waive Christian Ringo, though. He knows the GB system, has been in the NFL for a couple years, tough to see him go. I hope we can sneak him on the Practice Squad.

  21. This is all pretty straightforward. The Packers are better than the Vikings but probably not deep enough defensively to win the SB. I see us going deep into the playoffs after a fairly easy NFC North Championship. We’ll have a great year, 11-5 or 12-4, Rodgers will be in the conversation for MVP but in the end our D will prevent a ring. It’ll be a fun year, yet again, to be a Packer fan.

  22. It is kind of funny… The vikings trolls have ripped on TT for years for not signing free agents and/or filling holes on the defense with other players when teams make cuts. Now he does it and they use it as an excuse to say the Packers are desperate for doing it.

    This is all occurring at the same time they claim to have the best defensive secondary in football while they trade for a Defensive Back. Hypocrisy thy name is a viking fan.
