Spencer Havner admits he was down in the dumps when the Packers cut him coming out of training camp. "I was very disappointed," Havner said. But he didn't stay down for long, and thankfully for him he didn't burn any bridges on his way out of Green Bay. The multi-purpose Havner hooked on with the Detroit Lions after getting cut by the Packers. Havner saw action at linebacker in Detroit, but he injured his hamstring and was eventually let go by the Lions. Now Havner is back with the Packers, who signed him on Friday to play tight end. Havner said he didn't harbor any hard feelings after the Packers cut him. He was thankful for the opportunity the Packers gave him to play tight end last season. Although he figured he wouldn't be back, he's glad he took the high road. "I can’t hold too hard a feelings," said Havner. "Just try not to basically. In some way it’s probably going to come back and it ended up coming back. I ended up here." Havner has been rehabbing his hamstring in recent weeks. "I tested it out a little (Monday) at practice," he said. "It went well. Didn’t feel anyting negative in my hamstring. Feels good." Havner was considered one of the Packers' better special teams players so he could very likely see action on those units.
