On The Packers Cornerbacks, the Vikings Stadium, and the Bears Safeties

New, comments

ESPN's Kevin Seifert is another writer who thinks the Green Bay Packers need to draft a cornerback. So is CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco, who I discussed earlier. Once the next pick in the SB Nation writers mock draft is posted, you'll read that I don't disagree that they need another cornerback. However Seifert's point is that the Packers might not be able to rely on three cornerbacks coming off injury (CBs Al Harris, Pat Lee, and Will Blackmon). The Packers are expecting all three back at some point in 2010 (I'd be stunned if Harris was 100% on week 1), and it's not like they don't exist. If all three were re-injured, then it would cause a problem, but every position is a problem if it loses three players from it.

So the Vikings lease on the Metrodome expires after the 2011 season. The Minnesota legislature is working on a new stadium deal, but are the Vikings using the lease expiration as an excuse to get a new stadium or to get out of town?

The Bears released veteran S Mike Brown this time last year. The release wouldn't have been a surprise on many teams, Brown has been in decline and battling injury for the past few seasons, but the Bears have so much trouble finding help at his position that he might still have been useful to them. They're still looking for the answer at safety.
