posted 07/23/2008

The Green Bay Packers have signed tackle Breno Giacomini, quarterback Matt Flynn and wide receiver Brett Swain. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signings Wednesday.

Giacomini, a 6-foot-7, 311-pound player from Louisville, was a fifth-round selection (No. 150 overall). He started all 12 games at right tackle in 2007 for the nation's No. 6-ranked offense.

A 6-foot-2, 222-pound signal caller, Flynn was the Packers' first seventh-round pick (No. 209 overall). He capped his collegiate career by leading LSU to the 2007 BCS National Championship.

Swain, a 6-foot, 203-pound player from San Diego State, was Green Bay's second selection in the seventh round (No. 217 overall). He earned second-team All-Mountain West Conference honors in 2007 after leading the team with 58 catches for 973 yards and five touchdowns.

Thanks for the links guys, i appreciate it. I figured these deals were going to get done first because the late round guys usually do. There is less money on the table and usually they are just happy to be on a team. I expect the rest of the guys to sign in the next week or so.

Haha sorry man. There was nothing really wrong with you post but it did have the other one quoted in it that was baiting so i decided that would be the easiest way to make it disappear. It must be because i'm on such a power trip right now...:D

The Green Bay Packers have signed guard Josh Sitton and waived punter Ken DeBauche, linebacker Marcus Riley and cornerback Kyle Ward. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the transactions Thursday.

Sitton, the club's fourth-round selection (No. 135 overall), earned first-team All-Conference USA honors in his final season at Central Florida. A 6-foot-3, 317-pound player, he helped the Knights' offense set single-season school records for rushing yards and points as a senior in 2007.

Sitton is the fourth Packers' draft pick to sign with the club.

I guess this means that Ken DeBauche isn't even going to get a chance to compete in camp for that spot. Either Jon Ryan is continuing to improve or DeBauche isn't all that great. I figured they would at least keep him around until the pre-season games to see him punt in game situations
