Packer Report @PackerReport
#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 they have fun with that nut........ Not a risk I'd want my team taking.
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.
Current favorite players (in no specific order): Jeremy Lane, Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reed, Arian Foster, Brandon Marshall (DEN version), and of course, the real one Marshawn Lynch
