Overview of Packers Receivers

Just want to direct you to a great overview article in today's Milwaukee-Journal Sentinel about the players competing for Packers roster spots at wide receiver. Could be as many as 13 when it's all said and done. Obviously, they all aren't going to make it. Still, there is some quality there beyond Donald Driver to go with the quantity. And some youth. And some speed. Paraphrasing the motto of Faber College ("Knowledge is Good"), competition is not all bad. The Pack should go into the season with perhaps its strongest receiving corps in years. You can read the article in its entirety here.

Tryout Signees

In addition to signing fullback Corey White from UAB, as noted in a post here yesterday, the Packers announced they also have agreed to contracts with two other undrafted rookies coming out of this last weekend's tryout camp: DeVon Hicks, a defensive end from Northwest Mississippi Community College, and Pete Bier, an offensive lineman from Army.
