When your team is struggling, changes will happen. This one isn't a major change, but it is noteworthy. The Packers have decided to mix things up in their linebacking core and on their special teams unit, cutting Tracy White and calling up Danny Lansanah from the practice squad.
"We appreciate everything Tracy has done for us," general manager Ted Thompson said in the article on the JS Online blog. "We just felt like Danny is a guy that we believe, based on the way he played in pre-season and the like, that he can add a little bit more juice to us. He's a guy that we want to have on our team."
I like both players, and Lansanah was impressive during preseason. So impressive, in fact, that Bill Parcells was ready to pull him off our practice squad and sign him to the Dolphins roster. So perhaps this move reflects less on the play of Tracy White, and more on the desire to keep Lansanah in a Packers uniform.
