Morning Buzz: Young Packers show resiliency
Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here atPackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.
We start with EricBaranczyk and Pete Doughertyquestioning the depth at outside pass rusher on the Packers roster.
Games are long and seasons are longer. You want your best rushers at their best in fourth quarters and late in the year, when games and titles are on the line. The more rest Matthews and Perry get, the better. But somebody has to play in their place, and you don’t want that costing you games, either.
The Packers drafted fourth-round pick Vince Biegel to possibly be that next guy. They also thought Kyler Fackrell or Jayrone Elliott could graduate to the role. But so far, no one has emerged.
