Packers notes: Losing rookie QB Taysom Hill tough to swallow

GREEN BAY – Coach Mike McCarthy and his offensive staff invested a lot of time in training quarterback Taysom Hill, who came to the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent with limited experience in a pro-style offense. To lose him to the New Orleans Saints on a waiver claim was not easy to stomach

Dougherty: Green Bay Packers make surprising moves at WR, QB

Analysis: Time for Packers to consider moving on from Fackrell

There’s an old personnel aphorism about missing on a high draft pick: There’s no shame in making a mistake, but don’t compound it by keeping it. It was one of Ron Wolf’s favorites. The Pro Football Hall of Famer and former Green Bay Packers general manager used to say that all the time
