I just find it interesting how the world works sometimes.

In 2020 the Green Bay Packers got two players from Liberty High School in Bakersfield, California. Namely 1st round pick QB Jordan Love and undrafted free agent LB Krys Barnes.

Despite sitting on the bench for three years, and not getting much on field value out of QB Love, the Packers reward him with a starting opportunity in 2023 (it's probably deserved, I don't mean to imply it's wrong, just pointing out the oddities of life and ever changing).

Meanwhile ILB Barnes became an unlikely starter, giving the Packers absolutely great value out of an UDFA contract, and his reward? A pink slip... 


Life sometimes seems strange... the guy that gave great on field value so far gets punished and the guy that gotten poor on field value gets rewarded...

Supply and demand... there was a large supply of ILB and not enough demand for his services, and a huge demand for QBs and not a big enough supply of them.


Sorry, just my rantings, I was thinking it would be cool for these two highschool teammates to keep being teammates, sadly looks like that time is over.

True professional. Never complained about lack of playing time. I don’t really understand not bringing him back, but whatever.

More of a thumper. Barry's "system" needs guys that can run and cover. Barnes is a good player tho.

I like Krys but it was inevitable that he wasn't a long term solution. Hopefully someone picks him up. I hope he can get 5 years in. If not he is still one of the very few people that can proudly say that he played in the NFL.

beast (18-Feb) : I'm pretty sure those cap hits are going to hit no matter what, if the players are released, re-sign, whatever, the cap hits are earned
Martha Careful (18-Feb) : DH, 10.4 I agree. Z2C IIRC they could sign later, but lose ability to adjust void years/dead cap
Zero2Cool (18-Feb) : They could release before Monday. Then sign later, yea?
Zero2Cool (18-Feb) : Doesn't meant they won't be on Packers in 2024 does it?
dhazer (18-Feb) : @martha That's why said I guess we will know about Savage because if no extension we get a $5 million cap hit for him

Zero2Cool (16-Feb) : How's that work? They can't sign him via free agency?

Martha Careful (15-Feb) : Kudos to them for the quick hook.

buckeyepackfan (12-Feb) : lol
buckeyepackfan (12-Feb) : Don't know how Vegas does it. 46.5 over/under I took the under
