Packers cut Rouse – read here. What is going on up there in Green Bay? Now, as is often the case, I can’t pretend to know the full story here – maybe Rouse was seriously injured and accepted an injury settlement with his release or something. But unless the Collins and Bigby injury situations have suddenly improved, I cannot imagine why the team would cut a back-up who knows the system. While the whole defense was questionable Sunday, I’m not sure Rouse was exceptionally bad.
There sure better be some kind of sensible explanation for this – like that the neck stinger is really a problem and they offered an injury settlement etc. Outside of that, we’re just so thin at the position, I don’t think there could be a good explanation. We should have kept him AND signed this Matt Giordano guy. I’m really uncomfortable going into the Rams game with a present CB and a newcomer safety as the starters.
