During the off-season, fans just hope their players stay out of trouble.
Unfortunately, an ill-timed joke got special teamer, Trevor Davis, into trouble at Los Angeles International Airport.
While with a companion at the Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter being asked security questions, Davis asked his companion, “Did you remember to pack the explosives?”
Despite claiming it to be a joke, that didn’t matter. Davis was arrested to misdemeanor criminal threats and faces public scrutiny for a colossally stupid and immature joke.
Roughly fourth on the Packers wide receiver depth chart, Davis is primarily a special teams player returning punts and kickoffs. It’s hard to imagine the Packers making the move to cut Davis for this indiscretion, but per Over the Cap, releasing the wide out would only amount to approximately $113,000 in projected dead money.
While that’s not a huge penalty, it also doesn’t feel worth it to cut Davis for being juvenile.
More on the incident is discussed here with Bleacher Report, first reported by TMZ Sports.
When Aaron Rodgers went down, there wasn’t just a hole at quarterback, but a discernible hole in the locker room. Team leaders weren’t as easily defined as Rodgers was, and it didn’t help matters with Damarious Randall and Martellus Bennett causing internal strife. Head Coach Mike McCarthy plans to make that a point of emphasis this off-season.
The Packers generally don’t use their first-round pick on a receiver, but the good news is that if they do draft a receiver in this draft, there is plenty of talent deep. D.J. Moore from Maryland, D.J. Chark from LSU, and Memphis’ Anthony Miller could all be available to the Packers in round 2 or 3.
With Jimmy Graham now lining up for the Packers offfense, tight end isn’t a direct need, but it could use some depth now that Richard Rodgers has signed with the Eagles. The former walk-on ran a 4.7 40 and has been moving up draft boards after a strong Senior Bowl performance.
