Brian Gutekunst was named GM of the Packers on January 8, 2018. He’s made over 100 personnel moves since that time – some good and some bad.

I think Raven Greene could definitely provide some good stuff to the defense. What you think?

I haven't seen enough of him to form an opinion.

Michael Rodney's opinions aside, Raven Greene may compete well for a spot on the Packer Defense, but at Safety and not at Inside Linebacker. He should have the speed for pass coverage, but not the weight to stop thundering opposing Running Backs in their tracks. He will have to compete on a high level to secure a Secondary spot on GB's final 53 man roster.

I think Greene potential return last year, was a bit over hyped because our defense was absolutely dominant the two games he played, and they were absolutely dominant because the defensive front kicked the shit out of the Vikings and Bears OLs, and both their QBs folded under pressure. Then the defense struggled more against better OLs/QB combos. I didn't think him along would change the defense back to the dominant first two weeks we saw.

That being said, I think it's clear that Greene can absolutely play a very important role, and probably be successful at it.
________________________________

The Packers need a coverage LB, and the options are Kirksey, Burks and 3rd Safety.

While traditional Kirksay has done well in coverage, he reported struggled at it in his last healthy season and then had two seasons with injuries.

Burks, well, he's just struggled on defense so far, despite maybe the highest potential for this role, he's also got the lowest floor and hasn't yet shown us flashes that he'll improve (yet).

3rd Safety, as they did last year, get Greene on the field and they later did with Campbell, might give their best coverage, which I believe is what Pettine is going.for, what's best against the passing game.
________________________________

The bottom line is, if healthy, Kirksey will get on the field, and I think he'll be Summers and Martin competing for the physical LB role when Kirksey is in the coverage LB role, maybe against more run first teams.

While Burks and Greene will compete for the the coverage LB role against more teams and I think Greene will win.


But even if they go with Kirksey at coverage LB, Greene still has a shot to get on the field, as they have named Savage as a potential option in the slot CB role, which would free up a Safety role. And while Savage might be at a disadvantage in terms of getting practice snaps in this role, making it less likely to happen, he also might be physically the most talented option, (except maybe Alexander whom we want on the outside,) that they have available.


So if healthy, I expect them to find ways to get Greene on the field often, mostly as the coverage LB, but possibly at Safety too.

Zero2Cool (20-Jul) : Rodgers declined the offer, proof it’s not about the money.
Zero2Cool (20-Jul) : This off-season, the Packers offered Aaron Rodgers a two-year contract extension that would have tied him to Green Bay for five more seasons and made him the highest-paid QB and player in football. R
Zero2Cool (20-Jul) : uh oh Hotel Desk Manager just made a great point. @Bucks have closed out every series on the road.

dfosterf (19-Jul) : They moved (replaced) that tank in order to make room for an undisclosed expansion to Lambeau. There is a lot of (humor) material to work with here in the upcoming shareholders meeting
dfosterf (19-Jul) : The construction workers in 2003 put a sign on the old tank that read: "Minnesota Vikings locker room"
Zero2Cool (19-Jul) : We have Bears locker room under the parking lot?
dfosterf (19-Jul) : Plus we moved the 400,000 gallon poop collection tank to under the player parking lot, so we have that going for us as well!
