Veterans who could be shown the door

Looking back on the Packers 2012 offseason, they addressed their needs and added a bunch of new players. With that said, let's take a look at which veterans could be on their way out either before camp or by the end of camp.

Charlie Peprah: I am sick and tired of people saying that Peprah is the starter and is a servicable backup. He didn't play well last year, at all. Look at the tape, on so many big plays for the opposition Peprah was so badly out of position.It's time to cut the cord and run. Many of you say he needs more time. The dude is almost 30! How much time is he going to get? It's not like he was some veteran who came to the Packers after a successful run with another team and is just struggling right now. Even without Woodson moving to safety, Anthony Levine, M.D. Jennings, and Jerron McMillon could not possibly do any worse in then Peprah did a year ago plus they are all young and one, or more, could turn out to be a gem. It's time to cut the cord and move on.

Robert Francois: The Packers have an overload at linebacker. He is probably one of the guys who will be shown the door by the end of camp if not earlier.

A.J. Hawk: The Packers trade up for Terrell Manning and plan to move him inside. With all of the rest of the talent they have inside, Hawk could be cut at the end of camp.

Ryan Pickett: if the linebacker position is currently overloaded, multiply that by 30, double it, and you have the current situation along the front line. Pickett is showing age, and as a result, could be shown the door at the end of camp.

Mike Neal: This might be the best bet to be cut of them all. The Packers have had it with Neal's nonsense along with his lack of productivity so he might be cut in the near future.

Tom Crabtree: I like the idea of having multiple sets, but if the Packers decide not to cut Driver, this would be an easy way out in order to make room for Gurley.

Donald Driver: This will be the toughest cut Thompson will ever have to make if he chooses to make it. This may offend some, but I think it may be time to take the old dog out back, and pull the trigger. There might be an easier way out of this though, such as Driver retires and takes a deal to remain with the Packers in some sort of capacity.

Nick Hill: He was signed for offseason insurance in case somebody wanted Harrell as well as Flynn and the Packers were unable to draft a QB. He will probably be an early camp cut.
