Carlton Brewster ist das beste!

It's promising to see that through the first four weeks WR Carlton Brewster is leading NFL Europa in receptions, receiving yards, and total yards from scrimmage. Plus he is keeping a diary.

The Packers acquired Brewster from Cleveland via trade during the 2006 preseason. He had a great chance to make the team as the fourth wide receiver, but he suffered from the same case of fumblitis that struck a number of receivers last preseason. He was released, but spent time on and off the Packers practice squad during 2006. Currently he is assigned to NFL Europa by the Packers.

NFL Europa hasn't developed many good football players, but WR Ruvell Martin was great over there and he was the Packers 2nd best receiver last season. Martin probably remains behind WRs Greg Jennings and Robert Ferguson on the official depth chart, but Martin is the best Plan B at receiver opposite WR Donald Driver if Jennings' late 2006 struggles continue into 2007 and Ferguson is still injured. If a former Europe WR like Martin can help out the Packers, then maybe Brewster strong NFL Europa season might be a sign that he could become a good player too.

If Brewster carries his strong play over into training camp and shows that he can hang onto the ball, he might be able to contribute in 2007.
