    #Packers sleeping on the decision. Barring a bad night sleep, it appears they will sign Lyerla, according to source.


    According to two sources, Lyerla looked good at the Packers’ rookie orientation camp, which wrapped up on Saturday.

    “We did a lot of work on Colt,” general manager Ted Thompson said during a Saturday news conference. “He’s a very talented athlete. We interviewed him at the Combine, we went through all those procedures, talked to a lot of people. He’s a young man that made some mistakes and we feel like he was worth bringing in and taking a look at.”

  • Hope he makes it. Has all the natural athletic ability in the world, would be a shame to waste it.

    He's so talented, but this dude is a mess. I guess it's worth taking a chance on him from a financial/pick standpoint, though. It's not like you're burning a first-rounder or second-rounder on this guy like Justin Blackmon (a guy who had alcohol problems in college, IIRC) or Josh Gordon (kicked out of school for smoking weed, IIRC). It's just a cheap UDFA contract with no pick given up. If he starts doing coke again, you just cut him.

  • Well they are in a dire need of TE. For Colt, it would be a good opportunity for both sides. Lyerla is very talented and could be a good surprise if he's got his off-field stuff in order.

    Right up to the moment he walks out on them, or holds out because he has 10 catches and wants to be paid top TE money.
