GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It's not often that an undrafted rookie performs so well during training camp and preseason that the final roster cutdown is of little worry. But that was the case with Packers outside linebacker Dezman Moses.
Before leaving Lambeau Field following Green Bay's final preseason game, with roster cuts due less than 24 hours later, Moses already knew he was safe.
"I had a few hints the day before that I could sleep," Moses said. "That helped me a little bit. But you never know until someone tells you it's official. It's a little relief, and then it's back to work."
Moses gave the Packers' coaching staff and front office no reason to even second-guess his spot on the roster. He dominated during minicamp, but judgment on his skills had to be withheld somewhat considering that those practice sessions involved no pads and no hitting.
But as his success carried over, it was obvious that general manager Ted Thompson had found a steal after the draft by signing Moses.
