Packers RB Brandon Saine
I could have easily titled this post “Brandon Saine: The New Brandon Jackson?” or “Brandon Saine Could Be Packers Third Down Back,” because that’s exactly what he’s shaping up to be. Though, in all fairness, I actually think he could be better than Jackson used to be.
Saine was picked up by the Green Bay Packers in 2011 as an undrafted rookie out of Ohio State. Though he was released in the final cuts, the Packers signed him to the practice squad, where he stayed until being promoted to the active roster halfway through the season. His first significant appearance came in the Thanksgiving Day showdown against the Detroit Lions, and Saine would later go on to see some significant playing time against the New York Giants and the Lions rematch.
According to ProFootballFocus.com, these are some of the stats for Saine in the seven games he appeared in:

Word out of Packer’s camp is that Jordy Nelson is stealing the show. With the disappointing news about James Starks coming out, it’s good to see the pass attack is still in full swing.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- In order for Packers wide receiver Tori Gurley to make Green Bay's active roster this season, several factors would have to fall into place.

Most fans were sad to see Flynn go, who might...
