Vance Walker to visit Green Bay

ESPN reporting he will visit Packers if does not sign with KC during visit.

I do not know anything about him except he is a Raider.

Walker was graded better than any of our free agent DL, heard he was decent as a pass rusher, not so good vs. the run.

So, he's the exact opposite of most of our DL?

So, to sum up, both Dorsey and McKenzie signed mid-range free agent defensive linemen with pass rushing ability today. Good thing we're stocked at that position.

I still think it's possible that Adam Carriker might be brought in for a Week 2 or 3 visit.

If he's fully recovered from his quad injury, he would be an ideal fit as a 3-4 DE (age 29/6'6"/300#'s).

Would give the Packers the "length" they need (and should want!) at DE, and then bring in another draft pick of similar mold but not have to depend on draft pick having to be "the guy" right away.

Gotta remember that, as of right now, they are missing Pickett-Jolly-Wilson from last years DL. Nice that they brought back Raji for a "prove it" year, but they need more than that and a draft pick.

Carriker has value written all over him and he would be just the kind of signing that TT likes to do.
