No deadline deals – no surprise

As expected, the trading deadline came and went with no moves for the Packers.  In fact, the Roy Williams trade is really the only one in the NFL worth noting.

Somehow, the Packers got thrown in with the Tony Gonzales rumors… I don’t understand how that could possibly make sense.  The Packers could certainly benefit from an upgrade at tight end, but with Finley hopefully developing and Lee being a good enough starter, why give up a 2nd round pick (or multiple picks) for a guy now?  Plus, the offensive line and the entire defense have so many holes that it seems tight end is probably about the least of their problems (along with receiver and QB).

In other news, with week 6 coming and going, Justin Harrell is off the PUP list.  It sounds like the team is going to bring Harrell in for practices right away, so the team will have 3 weeks to decide whether to active the injury-prone tackle.  While the defensive line could really use some help, I just can’t get excited about Harrell.  He hasn’t shown he can stay healthy his entire college and pro career, so forgive me for not being too hopeful.
