The Packers Make Some Roster Moves

As the Green Bay Packers get back to practice this week, they announced some moves on Monday morning to bring back one former player, and sign a new player, to fill out the practice squad.

RB Brandon Saine. The undrafted rookie has spent the season on the practice squad, and we had discussed last week the merits of moving him up to the active roster. To make room for Saine, RB Alex Green was placed on the I.R. with a season ending knee injury. This isn't really a move at running back (Green hardly played this season on offense) but Green was injured while blocking on special teams, and now they'll need someone to replace him in that role.

S Anthony Levine. He spent all of 2010 on the Packers practice squad, and he was released at the end of the preseason after missing a lot of time due to a concussion. I thought they might re-sign him once he was healthy.

C Paul Fenaroli. I didn't even bother to write last week about the going of Cam Newton's brother. But with his departure, the Packers were once again on the lookout for an interior offensive lineman to play with the scout team. Fenaroli's an undrafted free agent from the subdivision Stony Brook Seawolves, who started 38 games in college for a good running team. He spent the preseason with the Falcons, and he's been looking for a new opportunity ever since. There's not a lot of upside in him for the Packers, but it's a good opportunity for him to get some more experience.
