Thompson outlasts Ingle Martin in GB

Sooner alum notes:
The Packers released Ingle Martin on Friday, leaving Sooner alum Paul Thompson as the third string QB for now. The two commentaries I read on the net indicated skepticism that Thompson is secure in the job. I believe Green Bay is holding out hope the Casey Printers will become available. My analysis from 1500 or so miles away is that Thompson will end up on the practice squad as the 3rd string's not like there's a lot of other options out there for QB, or the Vikings might have something better to choose from in there camp than Tarvaris Jackson, Tyler Thigpen, Brooks Bollinger and Drew Henson. Holy freaking cow. Just spent two minutes searching on Tyler Thigpen...Tyler is the ONLY QB Coastal Carolina has ever had (FB program started in 2003), and he's made it to the final NFL cut. I don't believe the LandThieves have ever had a QB throw a pass in an NFL regular season game (90 or so years of football) and this school's first QB ever may make it.

Ok, I digress. The Pack plays again on Thursday evening, we'll see if PT makes it.
Zach Latimer was cut by the Bolts this weekend.
Dan Cody was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list by the Ravens. Dan spent all of 2005 on IR, and only played three games last year.
