The Packers announced they claimed safety Ibraheim Campbell off waivers from the Jets on Monday. They released punter Drew Kaser in a corresponding move.

The acquisition of Kaser caused head scratching when the Packers announced it Saturday. He was inactive for Sunday’s game as regular punter JK Scott punted.

The Chargers cut Kaser on Oct. 3.

Campbell, 26, played one game for the Jets before they cut him last week.

He appeared in four games with Dallas this season after being claimed off waivers from Houston. The Cowboys waived him Oct. 9, and the Jets signed him Oct. 24.

He has played 43 career games, with 11 starts, and made 69 tackles.

  1. The signing of Kaser only caused head scratching because there was no investigating or even a slight dive into the details here. It was reported Scott’s wife was expecting their 1st baby and it was precautionary in case he had to miss the game there would have been no head scratching but instead only half the story is still being reported here.

    What a complete mess this hapless franchise has become
    ============

    And the funny thing is they are 1.5 games out of the division lead. The North is weak.

  3. JK said they are inducing labor this week.

    Congrats to Sydney and JK Scott!

    JK also said it was “awesome” the Packers did all that for them. A plane was in stand by last night.

    PackersNation is one big family!

    OK.
    Did she have the baby yet? What happens if we get to Saturday and the baby isn’t born yet? Do they resign a punter yet again?
    Seems like a valid reason for the signing, but still is odd when you ask basic questions as to the logic of the move.

    The good news, if Miami kicks the pack at home, season over everyone can RELAX then.

    The bad news, if the Vikings don’t win the SuperBowl with Cousins the entire season is a bust.

  6. As a Vikings fan I know how this will go. We will end up with a losing record and the Packers will win the division at 9-6-1

    Their fans are not nice. They don’t realize how hard it is to always watch them celebrate success. It was horrible to watch the 1996 and 2010 Super Bowls as a Vikings fan. As a kid I prayed I would wake up as Packers fan.
