By no means do I wish to alarm anyone, but I think this is weird.
As of this writing, Wednesday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers don't have a punter.
I wouldn't worry much about this if the team had a bye week. Instead, they have a home game against Houston Sunday.
And they don't have a punter.
The Packers cut the ineffective Derrick Frost on Monday. You might remember him as the guy who honked four pathetic punts the prior Monday night in New Orleans. It's an excusable thing for a punter to have a bad day in a driving rain or on a windy day. What isn't so passable is for a punter to suck it up in a domed stadium.
When the Packers made the move, they began scheduling free agent punters for tryouts. That was Monday. With a couple more scheduled to try out Wednesday, the Packers are getting close to the deadline.
