The Packers signed third-round pick Jace Sternberger on Monday and they added another tight end to their 90-man roster as a waiver claim.

The NFL’s daily transaction report brings word that they have claimed Pharoah McKever off of waivers. McKever was cut loose by the Jaguars when they claimed tackle Andrew Lauderdale off of waivers last week.

McKever signed with the Steelers after going undrafted out of Florida International last year. He wound up with the Jaguars later in the year, but did not appear in any regular season games.

McKever began his collegiate days at North Carolina State, but had only one catch before moving to FIU. That catch went for an 82-yard touchdown and he added 27 catches for 301 yards and three touchdowns last year.

  1. Realizing early that Jace is yet another draft bust for the Pack…doubt this will correct it.

  2. Wow, lot of Viking fans interested in an insignificant waver claim. Shame you guys don’t have anything else to do with your time.

  3. I’ve never seen so many TEs that can’t block anybody on one team. Yikes!

    Because we all know what a poor blocking TE Mercedes Lewis is….

  4. All of a sudden it’s an embarrassment of riches and a position of strength. I have a feeling something great is in the offensive plans. LaFleur may have been the OC elsewhere, but he answered to somebody else. He can do whatever he wants now, and I’m looking forward to it.

  5. I am also surprised he didn’t swith to play defense since GB has the worst defense in the league again.

    And I had such high hopes for this season. Damn you ariani and your sweet time travel machine.

  6. Whoa. Rumor has it the Vikings did put in a claim for him.

    Spielman was overheard saying “this guy could be the best QB we’ve had since Favre.”

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    His description of what occurred is an example of Rodgers knowing more than his coaches. Perfect timing too, or they may still be stuck with McCarthy. I trust LaFleur is taking advantage of Rodgers’ on-field prowess.

    And yet he’s still on the team working side by side with Rodgers. What’s that tell you?

    We all know JG can’t block…never could…but he wasn’t signed to be a blocker, which is why we picked up ML, and why what you said is dumb.

    Lewis had a high cap hit for this year.
