|Itís not the role Taysom Hill wanted Thurman Thomas Jersey , but the Saintsí trade for Teddy Bridgewater allows the team to use Hill on special teams without reservation.
Josh Katzenstein of the Times-Picayune expects Hill to be a core special teams player this season. Hill played one snap on offense last season and 71 on special teams.
In the final five games, Hill made four special teams tackles.
Hill, though, had hoped to win the backup job to Drew Brees. He spent the offseason competing with Tom Savage http://www.greenbaypackersteamonline.com/davante-adams-jersey , whose future with the team now is in doubt.
But Hill already had attended some special teams meetings, and quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi said Tuesday, before the trade, he expected Hill to contribute in the kicking game regardless of Hillís spot on the depth chart.
ďI think heís going to be on special teams regardless Matt Murray Jersey ,Ē Lombardi said, via Katzenstein. ďThatíd be an interesting situation, but heís going to be on special teams. Heís so good at it that youíre not going to just have him there holding a clipboard. Heís got to go play.Ē
A Chicago Bears defensive back pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors stemming from a fracas at a bar in northeast Iowa.
Deiondre' Hall and Green Bay Packers defensive back Makinton Dorleant were arrested March 26 last year outside Sharkey's Funhouse in Cedar Falls. A Black Hawk County court document said Hall didn't respond to police instructions and spit in officers' faces. Dorleant was detained after he approached officers in a threatening manner following Hall's arrest, police said.
Hall entered written pleas Feb. 9 to charges of disorderly conduct and public intoxication Braden Holtby Jersey , the documents said. A charge of interference was dropped in exchange for his plea. The 23-year-old was sentenced to six months of probation on a deferred judgment. That will allow his conviction to be removed from court records if he successfully completes the terms of his probation.
The records said Dorleant, 25, was given a year of probation and granted a deferred judgment at his sentencing last May on the same charges. The Packers cut him in April after he failed a physical.
Both men played college football in Cedar Falls at Northern Iowa.
