Packers Daily Links: Hargrove Addresses Suspension

Packers Daily Links: Hargrove Addresses Suspension

Newly signed free agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove answered questions about his suspension from the NFL about his part in alleged New Orleans Saints' bounty program and seemed, at least to one reporter, resigned to his fate. "Hargrove at least sounded pessimistic when asked if there’s much chance he’ll eventually get the suspension overturned," writes Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Hargrove returned to practice on Monday for the first time after missing the previous two training camp sessions on Friday and Saturday due to a personal matter not related to his suspension. There's still a case his suspension could be overturned in a court of law as former teammate Jonathan Vilma goes through the legal process.

More on Anthony Hargrove comes from the Associated Press and ESPNMilwaukee.com including his thoughts on Aaron Rodgers as compared to Drew Brees.

Wide receiver Tori Gurley answered questions about another former South Carolina wide receiver he knew, O.J. Murdock, a member of the Tennessee Titans who committed suicide on Monday. “That’s two,” Gurley is quoted as saying by Jason Wilde of ESPNMilwaukee.com. “It’s just sad, having two teammates pass away from suicide. I just hope his family is OK. I send my condolences to them and everyone. It’s not fun to hear something like that.” Gurley also reminisced about another former college teammate, Kenny McKinley, who similarly committed suicide in 2010. Meanwhile, Gurley attempts to make his way through training camp with the Packers looking for a roster spot.

More on Tori Gurley comes from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Fox Sports Wisconsin.

Second-year cornerback Davon House is making a positive impression during training camp after a nondescript rookie year. "He's still behind Jarrett Bush at right cornerback, but House is starting to make some noise," writes Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Monday was a positive start. During red-zone work, House broke up a lob intended for 6-foot-4 Tori Gurley in the corner of the end zone. Soon after that, he had an interception. For now, he's in Green Bay's dime defense." House spoke at length about his motivation for improving, which includes family as well as Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt.

More on Davon House comes from the Press-Gazette and Packer Report.

Offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga has gained attention at training camp for the strides he's made as a pass blocker. "More than anyone, first-round pick Nick Perry has experienced first-hand the impenetrable nature of Bulaga," according to Rob Demovsky of the Press-Gazette. "He already has been turned away three times in the one-on-ones. Last year in camp, Bulaga went 26-2 in the drill. This year, he may not lose once. In addition to thrice beating Perry, Bulaga also has stopped Ryan Pickett and Erik Walden. None has even threatened to get around Bulaga or push him back." With Perry being inserted at left outside linebacker, Bulaga is facing Clay Matthews less during practice than a year ago.

Rookie defensive lineman Mike Daniels is featured in an article by Rob Demovsky. "Unheralded fourth-round pick Mike Daniels, a 6-foot and 294-pound ball of fire from Iowa, has worked his way into the mix," describes Demovsky. "On Monday, the energetic Daniels jumped into the No. 1 dime, a package that defensive coordinator Dom Capers is planning to use more this season." After sitting out the entire offseason program due to recovering from shoulder surgery, news has been nothing but positive about Daniels since training camp began.

Really trying to temper my enthusiasm for these young CBs and new d-linemen, but it's hard.

I love Bulaga. That's all on him.

Did I read in the chat earlier that Daniels got hurt? Any word?

Disregard the Daniels question, Zach covered it in his post.

What's amazing is that Bulaga can be so good when his arms are so short...

Lol. Just goes to show "measurables" should be taken with a grain of salt.
