Few Visitors Allowed

I don’t have the time to research the rest of the league, but I’m guessing no other team comes close to that percentage. Of the 15 players who have spent time elsewhere (Matt Flynn, DuJuan Harris, Michael Hill, John Kuhn, Jarrett Boykin, Aaron Adams, Grant Gerhart, Andrew Tiller, Letroy Guion, Julius Peppers, Tramon Williams, Jumal Rolle, Jarrett Bush, Chris Banjo and Tim Masthay), only Flynn, Kuhn, Harris, Hill, Guion and Peppers have worn another jersey in a regular season game. What does this mean? Well, it means GM Ted Thompson and coach Mike McCarthy have stuck with their draft and develop philosophy through the years. And it also means that you probably shouldn’t hold your breath waiting for a veteran center or nose tackle from another team to come walking through the door anytime soon.

Packer Update is the creation of a longtime fan. My name is Michael Rodney and I was a sportswriter in the early 1990s. I worked full-time for a newspaper in South Jersey, but I still managed to get quite a few articles about the Packers published during that time. I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy writing about the most storied franchise in all of pro sports.
