Sam McGuffie Claims to Have Had Workout with Packers

Sam McGuffie Claims to Have Had Workout with Packers

While not from a verified account, former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Sam McGuffie claimed on Twitter to have had a workout with the Packers on Sunday...

McGuffie originally enrolled in college at Michigan, where he played and started at running back for one season.

After several concussions and a coaching change, McGuffie transferred to Rice where he continued to play running back and then became a slot receiver during his senior season.

Going undrafted, McGuffie signed with Oakland where he spent the offseason and training camp but was released last week.

The Packers currently have only four running backs on their roster but could be looking at McGuffie as a potential practice squad addition.

Possibly a practice squad tryout.

We have plenty of talent at WR for potential PS positions. We need a viable back-up QB to calm my nerves!!!

Looks like a less quick version of Danny Amendola

Speed as in his 40 time and quickness are 2 entirely different things. I haven't seen the guy in question so not commenting on him specifically. Just saying quickness and speed are entirely different. You mentioned his 40 time as evidence of his quickness, which is apples and oranges.

Fast does not = quick.

I just knew some moron would say something about his 40 time.

quick = first downs
fast = touchdowns

A runner can't have a world class 40 time without quickness. The 40 begins with a "quick" start allowing the runner to reach his maximum acceleration level within 10 - 20 yards. This guy is among the top athletes when evaluating directional quick-twitch performance.

No it begins w/ an explosive start. An explosive start in a straight line is, again, different than quickness on the field. Plenty of fast athletes have explosiveness, but lack quickness on the field. Quickness is best defined by the ability to change directions w/o a significant loss in momentum. Nick Perry is one example. For his size he has outstanding speed but lacks ability to change direction smoothly and efficiently. Shields has outstanding speed, only OK quickness. Hayward has relatively slow speed, but outstanding quickness.

As a former Strength and Conditioning Coach, I would know.

Some people just don't get it... ^^^

They're just arguing for posterity now, there's clearly a difference. I think I trruullyy just realized that we drafted a top-tier, high pedigree workhorse for the first time since Aaron has dropped back to throw a pass for Green Bay. Every year, we hopelessly pontificate about what it would be like if Aaron Rodgers had a running game. We're going to find out for at least the next 4 years. GPG.

any idea when he will know if he got the job or not?

Brian Carriveau's picture

The practice squad is full. It's likely he's already been told he didn't get the job. It just hasn't been reported and perhaps won't because McGuffie is likely already out of town and isn't going to go out of his way to tell the media he didn't get the job. Things could always change, however. You never know.
