In an unprecedented move to bolster an already depleted team, the Green Bay Packers have made an unusual late season acquisition. Working late into the night at 1265 this weekend, the Packers have inked...
...Mr. Potato Head to long term contract. Mr. Head or "The Head" as known to his teammates is sure to be a welcome addition to a team desperately looking for a spark plug.
Spending their Thanksgiving crunching numbers instead of turkey, Ted Thompson and the Packer's staff worked tirelessly to get the thick skinned superstar to choose Green Bay as his team of the future.
Head, 1'6" and weighing in at a hefty 2.35 lbs, is excited to showcase his talents with this storied franchise.
"I'm thrilled to be a Green Bay Packer today," said an obviously tired Head. "My agent and I both felt that Green Bay was a talented team that will contend for a title for many years to come."
Head will arrive in Green Bay early Sunday morning with his wife Barbie and their daughter Strawberry Shortcake. Although he is not expected to make an appearance on the field, Head will join his teammates on the sidelines as they take on the Panthers Sunday afternoon.
In an early morning press conference GM Ted Thompson was relieved that the efforts of the front office had finally paid off.
"We are very excited to get Potato into town and ready for the stretch run," said Thompson. Getting Head has always been a huge priority for me this season, and it's satisfying to see the effort come full circle."
Although his position is not set in stone, Head will most likely replace Bush on the Packers roster for the remainder of the season.
Contract details have not been released at this time.
