Packers | Quarterback Notes

Thu, 07 Feb 2002 11:33:28 -0800

The Journal Sentinel reports Green Bay Packers backup QB Doug Pederson may not return to the team in 2002. Third-string QB Henry Burris is also considering his options about returning to the team. If he does, he'd likely be no better than the team's No. 3 QB again because they'd prefer someone with more experience as their backup to starter Brett Favre. The Packers are likely to draft a QB again, too.

Packers | Burris Vs. Bishop

Thu, 23 Aug 2001 07:43:03 -0700

Christopher Walsh reports for the Press-Gazette Green Bay Packers No. 3 QB Henry Burris received some snaps in practice on Wednesday and he is also expected to play for the first time in the pre-season this weekend. He will attempt to fend off Michael Bishop as the team's No. 3 QB. The two QBs are roughly the same size, but Bishop is the better athlete. Burris has a huge advantage in that he’s been through three mini-camps and a month of training camp with the team. Offensive coordinator Tom Rossley doesn’t anticipate Bishop playing in either of the team's last two pre-season games.

Packers | QB Notes

Sat, 28 Apr 2001 23:52:04 -0700

The Journal Sentinel reports Green Bay Packers QB Henry Burris, who joined the team from the CFL, continues to work hard to earn his roster spot. The Packers saw enough of Burris' live arm, charisma and work habits to bypass drafting a quarterback. Burris is small and not all that fast, but he does throw a nice ball. "He's a talented kid and a hard worker," offensive coordinator Tom Rossley said. "But he's young and really raw." Currently veteran QB Doug Pederson is No. 2 on the depth chart, but the No. 2 and 3 QB jobs remain open. "I would say logically (Burris) can only be a No. 3 (this year), but who knows?" Rossley said.

The Press Gazette reports as the Green Bay Packers prepare for next week's mini-camp coach Mike Sherman has some areas he'd like to focus on, after reviewing last year's game films. He wants to improve the red-zone offense which finished in the middle of the NFL, the success rate on intermediate third-down conversions (three to six yards) must improve as does the two-minute offense. More than 60 Packers players are expected to attend starting next week. QB Brett Favre will attend the mini-camp, but he'll take part only in the morning workouts. The Packers want to get a close look at CFL QB Henry Burris who is expected to compete for the team's No. 2 or No. 3 QB slot.

Packers | More On Pederson

Sat, 10 Mar 2001 21:29:12 -0800

As a follow up to an earlier story, the Journal Sentinel reports the contract agreed to with the Packers by QB Doug Pederson is believed to be an incentive-laden contract near the veteran's minimum of $477,000 for 2001. Pederson has a good chance to be the team's No. 2 QB, but it's not guaranteed. CFL product Henry Burris will be in camp and coach/GM Mike Sherman has said he hopes to draft a quarterback and the Packers still could sign another veteran. Agent Ben Geller said four teams were very interested in Pederson, but the QB preferred to be in Green Bay.

Packers | Team Notes

Wed, 07 Mar 2001 04:45:27 -0800

The Press Gazette reports the Packers are giving some thought to signing former Packers QB Doug Pederson as their No. 2 QB. Except for Brett Favre, the only other QB on the Packers roster is CFL import Henry Burris. He'll probably need at least a year of NFL seasoning to become the team's No. 2 QB. Pederson is an unrestricted free agent after being cut by Cleveland last week. The Packers are reportedly considering several prospects for the No. 2 job. Agent Benjamin Geller said he'd like to have Pederson signed with a team by the end of this week. The Packers could also look to fill the need via the NFL Draft or with a trade for a veteran QB like Ty Detmer.

Packers | QB Swap | More

Sat, 24 Feb 2001 00:41:46 -0800

The Journal Sentinel reports the Green Bay Packers have waived last year's No. 3 QB Danny Wuerffel. He will become an unrestricted free agent Friday. GM Ron Wolf made it clear if No. 2 QB Matt Hasselbeck were traded it would be highly premature to regard newly signed Henry Burris as a legitimate candidate for the No. 2 job. Speculation has been rampant Hasselbeck is about to be traded. Wolf, however, denied that any offer had been made as of now. Wolf would not comment when asked if he'd accept Baltimore's first round pick in exchange for the QB. The Ravens reportedly one of the four teams interested in Hasselbeck.
