Size Matters At Center

The Packers waived offensive lineman Greg Van Roten on Tuesday. That wasn’t a surprise. After a promising first training camp in 2012, the former Ivy Leaguer simply didn’t show any improvement last summer (that he made the 53-man roster still boggles my mind). When asked why his client was let go, agent Bill Baldini said,...

What’s EDS Worth?

I feel about Evan Dietrich-Smith the way I’ve felt about A.J. Hawk for the past few years – he’s the type of player a team should start because it has to and not because it wants to. And to be honest, the Packers didn’t really have another option in 2013. Greg Van Roten didn’t impress in his second camp and rookie J.C. Tretter broke his ankle in August. That left EDS...

I’ve never been an Evan Dietrich-Smith fan. That said, I can’t imagine the Packers without him in 2014. Not because EDS is a top-of-the-line starting center, but because GM Ted Thompson has no legitimate alternative at the position. Greg Van Roten is a fringe player and J.C. Tretter has never snapped a ball in his life. The fourth-round pick, who has been out all season with...
