Packers cut Aaron Rouse – what?


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.

    Did not see this coming. Shocking. Releasing your starter from last weekend? There has to be more to the story. (At least I hope there is more.).

    They signed Giordano from the Colts prior to Rouse being cut. See earlier post.

  3. Cherry Says:

    Well, Collins practiced today, so maybe his injury as bad as feared & he’ll be able to go on Sunday.

    wow, you have to wonder what is going on at 1265. You cut Anthony Smith to keep Rouse and end up cutting Rouse a few weeks later for a street free agent. Might not want to keep three FB’s next year and maybe Meredith or Smith would still be on the roster. I also wonder how much Capers input is having in these decisions???

    Totally agree. It makes no sense. They said he had a stinger, but was expected to play. Collins seems to get hurt every year, and Bigby is no great shakes at safety … why rest the entire safety hopes on a guy who doesn’t know the system, the other players, or ? This looks like another stupid TT move.

    And this for a good chuckle – Rouse has just signed with the Giants. He could get a Super Bowl ring. Brandon Jackson had a setback with his ankle. Oh joy!
