McGahee Would Have "No Problems" Playing in Green Bay

McGahee Would Have "No Problems" Playing in Green Bay

Recently released running back Willis McGahee told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he would have "no problems" continuing his playing career with the Green Bay Packers.

Let go by the Denver Broncos Thursday, McGahee named a number of possible landing spots, including Green Bay.

"There are a lot of places I wouldn't mind playing. You got Miami, Dallas, Green Bay, San Diego, Oakland," McGahee told Anderson. "That's not necessarily my order of preference, though. All of those teams I mentioned I would go to with no problems."

McGahee turns 32 years old in October and is coming off a serious lower leg injury. However, he did rush for 1,930 yards (including a 4.6 yard average) and eight touchdowns over his 25 games in Denver.

The Broncos are now moving forward with second-round draft pick Montee Ball as their lead back for the 2013 season.

In recent seasons, the release of a still-effective running back like McGahee would have set off a firestorm of speculation in Green Bay. After drafting Eddie Lacy in the second round and Johnathan Franklin in the fourth of April's NFL draft, however, the Packers have no need to entertain the idea of taking a flier on a veteran back with an injury history.

Dallas, because it's not on the shore of a major body of water?

Cow: The best troll on CHTV's site.
If not a troll, then you must always point out the most pessimistic points of view so you don't have high expectations, and therefore are happy when the packers win even one game in a season, since, you know, you think the packers are the worst team in the NFL.

Okay, maybe not that bad, but you think they're average at best.

i'll give 'em "above average".

SF
SEA
NYG
ATL
NE
BAL
DEN
HOU
WAS

are teams with better rosters.

they're right in the mix - talent wise - with with...

CIN
PIT
IND
DAL
PHI
CHI
MIN
DET
NO
TB

so if you'd put them somewhere in the top 1/2 of that second tier group, that would have them at around 10-15.

so, yeah - "above average" fits.

Funny that people that actually KNOW the game put the Packers in the Top 5 NFL team right on par w/ Sea, your beloved 9ers and Atl!

Surely those experts don't know squat compare to the almighty infamous CowPie!

Well, if Lacy and Franklin both go on IR in preseason .....he might get a call from GB

What a horrible thought! You should be banned for even suggesting that! J/K, Kinda.

Apologize, sir.

Lucky953's picture

Uh, sure. Just so sick of injuries, my macabre sense of eternal injustice starts to kick in.

Ironic coming from someone named Lucky953

I remember the bowl game where he was injured, I believe in the 4th quarter; gruesome. I told my wife that that one play cost him millions of dollars. Not always the stand-up guy that you'd like, he has battled back from injury numerous times and had a good career.

GB - not.

The fact that GB is even on McGahee's radar shows how out of touch he is with how GB does business.

Stroh's picture

This is pointless! Packers have 5 RB that are younger and just as good at this point. McGahee can say whatever he wants, but it won't happen! Of course he would mention the Packers, he wants a ring before he's Officially put to pasture. He just doesn't realize that's already the case (like most athletes and most recently Driver). Why is this even worth drawing an article is the big question!
