    Is going to be waived/injured reserve. Would be a slick move putting in a claim for him! Thoughts?

    Lol...well...one could say most guys in the nfl have brain issues! The knee isn't a huge deal...6-8 weeks of rehab...and yeah, he's probably better than our back ups.

    Trestman and our present locker room seem to be able to handle some of these higher risk guys. It all comes down to the risk/reward factor. Only Emery and Trestman would know if this particular guy is worth a shot. If they are okay with taking a chance on a player (this guy or anyone) then I trust their judgement.

    I'd say it's worth a shot.

    I really wanted Phil to sign him as UDFA until I found out about his character issues and drug problems. Just stay away from him, we don't need that kind of idiot in our locker room.

    Is this the same he's better then our backups as Christian Jones was going to be a surefire to make this team? He's a UDFA headcase; and if he was as good as you think GB wouldn't risk putting him out there; you won't see the Bears putting Wilson out there to be snagged up like that.

    Agree 100%. Just say no. This guy is a problem and I was actually HAPPY when the Packers picked him up.

    Wilson has experience, as little as it may be, in the league already. Had we had to make a move with him last year, the risk, IMO, would have been the same as it is for colt.

    he has 2 catches, lets not act like he's some kind of vet. And last year they might have, and if someone had said, hey should we take a shot at wilson w/a busted acl/pcl after GB drops him, I would have said no also. If GB thinks you're worth the risk of losing, there's probably a reason for it.

    I don't think it's that they think he's worth the risk of losing, but that the rules dictate they must go about it this way. Teams must waive a player before putting him on injured reserve if it occurs before the season starts. It's simply procedure. Could they lose him? Sure, the Giants lost Jake Ballard when they tried to put him on waived/ir and the patriots scooped him up. It doesn't happen a lot though because teams know the guy is done for the year.

    Actually I saw that Colt cannot be placed onto a teams PS after picking them up off waivers, he has to be on the active roster. If he could get poached onto the PS, maybe....but definately don't need Colt on the active roster.

    Former Oregon Ducks tight end Colt Lyerla was arrested in Washington County at 2 a.m. Saturday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants, according to the Sheriff's Office.
    Lyerla, who was arrested almost a year ago in Eugene for cocaine possession, was released at 8:37 a.m. Saturday. Sgt. Vance Stimler said the report on his arrest is not yet available, but that Lylera is suspected of being high on either illegal drugs or prescription medications when he was pulled over.
    The 21-year-old, booked into the Washington County Jail at 6-foot-5 inches and 250 pounds, grew up in Hillsboro, attending Hillsboro High School.
    Lyerla, 21, recently made news by claiming in an article on SBnation.com that he chose to attend the University of Oregon because an unnamed booster promised his family a house, car and other things.
    He left Oregon in October 2013 to pursue the NFL but was not drafted in 2014. Lyerla joined the Green Bay Packers as a free agent then injured ligaments in his left knee Aug. 2. He was recently given an injury settlement by the Packers.
    Lyerla's next court date is Sept. 17.
    The Oregonian will update the story as details emerge.

    Too bad. The guy obviously has talent, but he is heading down the wrong path.
