This is the kind of hot stove transaction news that gets every fan's attention. The Green Bay Packers have signed eight players from their practice squad, and one from their injured reserve, to future contracts. Yes, that first sentence is total sarcasm.
This isn't big news, but it means all these players will get at least one more shot with the team in mini-camps this spring. That's assuming the lock out is over by the end of April. The players signed are WR Chastin West, G Adrian Battles, S Michael Greco, WR Antonio Robinson, LB Cardia Jackson, S Anthony Levine, DE Curtis Young, T Chris Campbell, and DT Jay Ross.
Though none of those players had an impact on the field in the Super Bowl, I saw many of them at media events. They remained part of the team throughout the season. But if a die-hard Packers blogger doesn't have any questions for them, then it's obvious that the major media isn't very interested in either.
