Packers ‘plan’ to keep Tim Boyle on 53-man roster after Hundley trade http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-aaron-rodgers-jersey , per report The Green Bay Packers made a big move to settle their quarterback room on Wednesday morning, trading backup Brett Hundley to the Seattle Seahawks for a sixth-round pick in next year’s NFL Draft. The obvious fallout from this decision is that DeShone Kizer has earned the right to back up Aaron Rodgers and will be the second quarterback on the Packers’ 53-man roster when final cuts come down on Saturday.However, the status of undrafted rookie Tim Boyle remained a bit of a question. Boyle impressed in the first two games of the preseason before seeing no action in game three. However, the Packers apparently are so impressed with him that they are unwilling to expose him to waivers and try to get him onto their practice squad for this season.That news comes from ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, who reports that the Packers currently plan to keep both Kizer and Boyle on the 53-man roster.Seeing this decision immediately brings to mind parallels to the 2017 preseason. Last year, the Packers had an established backup in Hundley, but they saw an undrafted rookie Womens Antonio Morrison Jersey , Taysom Hill, impress in preseason action. Rather than keeping three quarterbacks on the active roster, they cut Hill and exposed him to waivers in an attempt to get him onto their practice squad. However, the New Orleans Saints claimed Hill for their active roster, preventing the Packers from retaining him.It appears that missing out on Hill is affecting the Packers’ decision-making process this summer. Boyle has showed a strong arm in camp and has played well, but the fact remains that he is an undrafted rookie who threw more interceptions than touchdowns in college. Furthermore, the Packers are facing difficult numbers games at other positions on the roster Womens Jamaal Williams Jersey , such as running back, offensive line, and in the secondary. Keeping a third quarterback would mean that the team would have to subtract another player from one of those other positions.Final cuts are due at 4:00 PM Eastern Time on Saturday. Stay tuned to APC for full coverage of the Packers’ preseason finale in Kansas City on Thursday and all of cut-down weekend. GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Mike Pettine is staying as defensive coordinator of the Packers.New coach Matt LaFleur announced the decision Friday, answering one of his biggest questions just three days after being hired.In his first year, Pettine installed a 3-4 scheme and had mixed results. First-round draft pick Jaire Alexander showed signs he will become the top cornerback the Packers desperately need, and Green Bay was ranked No. 12 in pass defense (234.5 yards per game) Womens Aaron Ripkowski Jersey , a big improvement over 2017.Green Bay finished 6-9-1 and out of the playoffs for the second straight year. As the Packers wrapped up for the offseason last week, Pettine said he was hoping to return to keep building.“Of course, the foundation is the hardest thing to get right, and I feel that a lot of it has been built — and we’ve made a lot of mistakes,” he said. “I think we learned, especially me personally, too Womens Bart Starr Jersey , I’ve learned a lot of cases of what not to do versus what to do.”The Packers did pile up 44 sacks, tied for eighth in the league, though injuries struck the defensive line. Green Bay lacked a consistent rush at outside linebacker except for surprise sacks leader Kyler Fackrell (10½).“I like his scheme,” Fackrell said last week. “There were a lot of things that went against us this year with a ton of injuries, a ton of new guys. I think the way that he was able to still keep us playing pretty well, I think he did a great job.”Defensive lineman Kenny Clark also liked the new scheme, which saw 17 different players get at least a half-sack.“I had my best season under coach Pettine Dave Robinson Jersey White , and just the blitzes and the different disguises and the different he can do to free people up — it’s been great for me,” he said. “He’s been using a lot of our strengths on the field.”Longtime defensive star Clay Matthews is a free agent after finishing with a career-low 3½ sacks in his 10th season with the Packers.
