When the Green Bay Packers finalized their 2014 53-man roster on Saturday, I can't say I was too astonished. The roster was set up the way I thought it would be, although a couple of the roster spots awarded were a bit surprising.
Maybe the biggest surprise of the whole weekend was that the Packers signed 10 of their own training camp players to their practice squad. Normally the Packers have signed a few of their own players in the past but have also brought in players who were with different teams during the summer.
It tells you that Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy believe there is a lot of talent and depth on the team.
The 10 players that the Packers put on the practice squad Sunday were wide receivers Myles White, Kevin Dorsey and Alex Gillett, running back Michael Hill, tight end Justin Perrillo, center Garth Gerhart, offensive tackle Jeremy Vujnovich, defensive lineman Luther Robinson, linebacker Adrian Hubbard and safety Chris Banjo.
On Monday, the Packers released Gillett from the practice squad and brought back cornerback Jumal Rolle.
The Packers also posted their depth chart on Packers.com.
I see this team as being a definite contender for winning the Super Bowl.
I'm going to grade how each of the units fared for the Packers after the roster was cut down to the 53-man level.
