Can Dave Tollefson play standing up?
Sorry for the late start! Bad timing today, guys. I worked until 2 am, then had a game to cover for the other site at 8 a.m. I'm sure you'll forgive me, especially since this is up bright and early during the week. And Ted Thompson signed two free agents yesterday, neither of whom was expensive and both of whom play positions where the team needs help. Who's got reasons to be anything but happy? Here's your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.
In case it wasn't obvious watching him on the sidelines, Edgar Bennett loves his job and would like to be an offensive coordinator someday.
Former Packer Dave Tollefson might return to the team. He's a 4-3 rush end who hasn't played standing up, but apparently management thinks he could adjust to the position.

Efficiency and individual roles in a team's offense tell you more about a player -- in this case, Dez Bryant -- than volume stats do.
Yeaaaaaaaah, I can't root for Donte' Stallworth.
I know y'all don't like Chris but I can't spell Aromashodu without looking it up five times so he's probably a decent blogger.
This is really thorough, but the premise is inherently flawed. Picking a player at 11 overall does not make him more likely to be a good linebacker. "Recent history" doesn't matter; Patrick Willis would be the same player if someone took him first overall. The analysis of how he fits in (or doesn't fit in) on the team is VERY good, but the other part of the argument is ridiculous.
