Dude retired from the pats because his body is falling apart. Apparently he has put it back together now? Humpty dumpty style?

Long time starter out west (4 years Raiders, 4 years Cardinals, 1 year Broncos) kinda injury prone like Bulaga but less so.

Raiders shocked me, when they let him hit FA the first time... he was too good to let go (then), but they disagreed, and coming off a season ending injury that year. But he once was very very good, I don't know how he has been in recent years.

Injuries have taken a toll on him, and after signing with the Patriots, he retired a week later because he didn't think his hip could make it the whole season. But he's unretiring now...

So....pick up a injured guy. Just what we need.
I guess it cuts out the middle man.
Hopefully he can play. We need SOMETHING to help.

Latest rumor (only a rumor, so who knows if this is correct) is that he avoided any serious damage, and is only expected to miss a single game (if that).

Though some fans want to just sit him until the Vikings game.

An injured guy, that when healthy, might be a decent starter...

Your last sentence sounds like a description of Bulaga.

But seems like a decent pickup if he’s just going to be a fill-in guy for when Bulaga misses some time.

In his younger days, I'd say the two were probably extremely close in a lot of ways. I think injuries have had a bigger long term impact on this guy, where Bulaga often seems to bounce back with no problems.

Those, I don't know what he has in recent years...

Nope, no other decent options... a number of teams have had OTs problems all season and couldn't find a darn thing...

There are certain positions, such as QB, OT, edge rusher and CB, that are extremely extremely rare to find a decent one during the season other than maybe via trade. And trading deadline has now past.

The Green Bay Packers officially claimed veteran offensive tackle Jared Veldheer off of waivers on Friday, confirming he passed his physical with the team.

Veldheer, a third-round pick in 2010 with over 100 career starts, was placed on the exempt/commissioners list, meaning he won’t yet take up a roster spot.


Huh? Commissioners list? That's the, you're in trouble with the commissioner list... right?

They're the only one I see reporting this, so I think it might be a mistake? Or there might be another exempt list that he's on? Or I'm not sure... but that seems odd, if true...

Saw it elsewhere too. I think Packers site. I think it's just a roster exemption for the Packers so they don't have to burn a roster spot for a player coming off the IR list.

Pure conjecture here, but is this perhaps a “league couldn’t process your paperwork fast enough because of the holidays and/or we goofed it up, but we’re not going to penalize you by kicking someone else off your roster for the upcoming game“ list

gbguy20 (1h) : lemme guess Kevin king has a hammy
Zero2Cool (1h) : Packers list CBs Kevin King & Tony Brown as questionable.
KRK (20h) : I am surprised Garrett is still employed. If things don't changenot, he could be gone tomorrow.
KRK (20h) : bares
Zero2Cool (5-Dec) : Possibly.
gbguy20 (5-Dec) : we knew what you meant. your point was still clear
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Oops, Smith was CB, not RB. My mistake. Etiher way, it was about the KR/PR not the position
gbguy20 (4-Dec) : yep
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : What do you mean? They cut a RB who was the KR/PR, so they signed someone who is KR/PR, who happens to be RB
Cheesey (4-Dec) : I don’t get it. Going after more RBs. We NEED guys that can get separation and catch passes.
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Tyler Ervin taking reps with the running backs at practice today. Ervin, 5-foot-10, 192lbs., age 26, once said he’s tried to model his game after Darren Sproles. Best 40 time was 4.41 at Combine.
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Put the Packers in a dome. They are a soft team. They need protection from the weather.
Zero2Cool (4-Dec) : Packers go on the road each game, -- I say GOOD!
Nonstopdrivel (3-Dec) : The biggest problem with being a lower seed is that, unless everything falls your way, you're going to be on the road for the entirety of the playoffs.
KRK (3-Dec) : He sucks, they can have him.
Zero2Cool (3-Dec) : Dolphins have claimed speedy WR Trevor Davis off of waivers from the Raiders,
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : It might be easier to face Dallas on the road rather than the Vikes or 49ers at home
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : I meant 5th seed.
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : Would it be better to be the 4th seed in the playoffs rather than the 3rd?
Zero2Cool (3-Dec) : Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera has been fired.
Cheesey (3-Dec) : Seattle took care of the Vikings for us!
Zero2Cool (3-Dec) : We better not bring Davis back.
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : I don't think it was a conditional 6th so yes we do
gbguy20 (3-Dec) : do we still get our draft pick or....?
TheKanataThrilla (3-Dec) : Trevor Davis cut by the Raiders
Mucky Tundra (3-Dec) : And they need Dallas to lose all 4 of their remaining games
Mucky Tundra (3-Dec) : For the Skins to win the East, they need to win out, philly to win vs Dallas and lose their other 3 games
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : Packers release Tremon Smith.
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : Yeah—in a random drawing.
Porforis (2-Dec) : At 33, I still could win a spot on an NFL roster.
Mucky Tundra (2-Dec) : At 3-9, the Washington Redskins could still win the NFC East
gbguy20 (2-Dec) : definitely not
Zero2Cool (2-Dec) : nope
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : Could we take this to the chat, so I don't have to keep refreshing?
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : DeShaun Watson is quite the QB. Thank goodness the Bears to Trubisky
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : Of course the Pats get the call
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : No blizzards. Just fog that flash-froze to the pavement.
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : Were all those people waiting for Damarious Randall to show up?
gbguy20 (2-Dec) : 2 days of blizzards finally finished here this afternoon. no accidents to report
gbguy20 (2-Dec) : hmm
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : What should have been a five-hour trip took nine.
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : No, I was stranded on the interstate for hours in the Pittsburgh viewing area as crews rushed to clear massive pileups triggered by flash icing.
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : You missed the game NSD. Hopefully you were pulling foreign objects out of peoples rectums as an excuse.
Nonstopdrivel (2-Dec) : I'll watch it with you, sweetie.
TheKanataThrilla (2-Dec) : Anyone watching the Sunday nighter? I am afraid the Texans are scamming into watching a Pats comeback when I should be sleeping
beast (2-Dec) : I honestly wonder if the NFL purposely made it backfire to undo it.
Zero2Cool (2-Dec) : yes
Mucky Tundra (2-Dec) : anyone see the Dolphins trick play?
gbguy20 (1-Dec) : the experiment has failed miserably plus backfired
gbguy20 (1-Dec) : should just be done after this year
