Packers Blog Roundup: Masthay As Extension Candidate

Packers Blog Roundup: Masthay As Extension Candidate

In reference to the Packers having more than $10 million in salary cap space, ESPN.com NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert made mention of punter Tim Masthay being an extension candidate. "The Packers could approach guard Josh Sitton, tight end Jermichael Finley and/or punter Tim Masthay," writes Seifert. This shows how far Masthay has come as a punter to be mentioned as an extension candidate ahead of guys like Jordy Nelson, Scott Wells and Ryan Grant.

More commentary on possible contract extensions comes from Acme Packing Company.

Former Packers safety Matt Bowen gives readers something to watch tonight in a post at the National Football Post. "Don’t worry about the starters, game plans or what the No.2 QB is doing when you sit down to watch preseason football tonight," writes Bowen. "Instead, focus on the kicking game—all four core special teams—because that is where the competition matters in the fourth and final preseason game."

Tonight's preseason finale against the Chiefs is previewed at the Rock 'N' Roll Cecil Club.

The Packers should only keep four tight ends on their roster, according to Michael Rodney of Packer Update. "There’s no question Green Bay has five tight ends who can play in the league, but that doesn’t mean they all have to play for the Packers this season," writes Rodney. "Unless whoever is the No. 5 tight end on the depth chart has the potential to develop into a quality starter – and I don’t believe any of the candidates have that kind of ability – keeping four players at the position is enough." I personally think a couple of them have starting potential, and the Packers will keep all five.

Adding to the roster discussion is a slew of 53-man roster predictions. AllGreenBayPackers.com has the picks from Adam Czech, Zach Kruse, Thomas Hobbes and Kris Burke.

More roster predictions are at JonBob's Packer Blog and Ken's Packer Blog.

Can Tori Gurley win a roster spot because of his punt blocking ability? "Gurley is an intriguing prospect on a number of levels," writes Kevin Seifert. "He has shown flashes as a receiver during the preseason and, as a wise man I know told me, you can't teach 6-foot-4. But the punt-blocking potential is a new one for me. I don't know if I've ever seen it at the top of a player's résumé."

The career path of former Packers quarterback Brian Brohm to the UFL is noted by Total Packers.

The Packer Ranter likes the plain endzone painted with diagonal white slashes.

Lombardi Ave. overreacts to the Presidential address overlapping with the Packers/Saints game calling Obama's choice stupid and asking him to apologize to the teams.

DO NOT LET THE GINGER MENACE WALK!!!

We finally, after 10+ years, have found a great punter. The last one we found Wolf allowed to leave for TEN. TT, you learned under the man and know that it's one of his biggest regrets.

If we lack the money, I'm positive that Slocum would gladly give 90% of his salary to Masthay, with him saving his ass every single play and whatnot...

Ditto, and I always thought GM stood for something else.
