Yes, it was a limited number of snaps and yes, he's back on the sideline resting his ankle, but if Saturday night against the Browns was any indication, Johnny Jolly is out to make a case for the Packers keeping him at the end of the season, when he is set to be a free agent. Of course, it's no secret that Jolly will be under the microscope next offseason due to his lingering off field problems. But against the Browns starters, Jolly made the most of his handful of snaps, including an unbelievably athletic play for a defensive tackle/end that saw him box in a running back from the backside of a dump off pass and ultimately assist in the tackle.
Yes, it was the Browns and it was the first preseason game. But for a team that has many concerns along the defensive line, a productive and disruptive Jolly would be a welcome surprise.
