    Thinking ahead... KGB

    Kabeer... oh Hell, I can't spell his name... KGB has been released by the Packers.

    With Little banged up and the pass rush still not where it needs to be, might be worth a look on the waiver wire. He's only 31 and had 9.5 sacks last year. Plus, with the Packers paying his salary, he probably won't command too much money.

    There's a reason he's called KGB. He'd be a good addition to the rotation. He knows what's up, knows how to win. Though, he doesn't really sound interested in playing again.

    We do need help. We can't rely on Little as of now because he's on the bench more than the field...

    I am not sure where he is going to help. With Long and James Hall, we still have two functional ends. Is kgb really better than erik moore at this point? He has shown no real pulse this year. I dont buy the "knows how to win" argument. What he has known how to do over his career is sack the qb and he isnt doing that at all anymore. I think he is completely washed up. The packers are a team thinking playoffs and they wouldnt waive a guy who provides veteran leadership and has been very popular over the years with the fans and a very productive packer unless they really thought he was done, especially since they have to pay his full salary anyway.

    Since he will come cheap he's worth a shot, but he will only come in on sure passing downs and I'm not sure who we would release to sign him?

    Yes, exactly. In a league of "what have you done for me lately", KGB doesn't seem to hold much status.

    Is it possible that this could hamper the development of Chris Long? I mean, he's already developing fine when in a mix with two vets and Erik Moore. Is it wise to make him compete for playing time with a third vet, nonetheless, a supposed 'sack specialist' who hasn't proven much all year?

    I think he's done. As RedArcher said it doesn't even sound like he's sure he wants to play again based on what I've heard. He's been talking about what a fantastic privelege it's been playing for the Packers and how he's not sure what his football future holds etc. If he wanted to play I might give him a shot to replace Eric Moore, but I don't think he'd play a larger role than that, and then it's not really worth it to make a change IMO. He's been a complete non-factor in the Packers games I've seen this year.

    Because those are his initials?

    He might be a good player having a less than stellar year. The problem I would see here is that he doesn't really figure into our long-term plans. I don't think he'd be thrilled about being fourth or fifth in the defensive end rotation, but his recent production wouldn't warrant placing higher than that. We want Long and Adeyanju to get playing time, and at this point I don't know if KGB is a better play than James Hall. We'd want him for half a season as a depth player, and I really doubt that would be an appealing opportunity.

    Well we could release Eric Moore, also a defensive end.
