The Green Bay Packers Monday made a pair of practice squad transactions, releasing running back Bobby Purify and replacing him with Samkon Gado. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, made the announcement.

Gado, a 5-foot-10, 226-pound running back from Liberty, originally signed as a rookie free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs this past May. Waived near the end of the preseason, he re-joined the Chiefs and spent the season's first month on their practice squad. His last name is pronounced GAH-doh.

A native of Nigeria, Gado played 39 games at Liberty and averaged 6.0 yards on 273 career carries (1,631 yards) with 16 touchdowns, and caught 38 passes for 486 yards and six TDs

Profootball Weekly 10-24-2005 Whispers

We hear the Packers are smitten with practice-squad RB Samkon Gado, a 5-10, 226-pounder claimed from the Chiefs last week. One scout said Gado, who attended Liberty, runs a 4.43 40-yard dash, 4.13-second short shuttle and has serious upside, and he even called Gado the next Willie Parker.

Willie Parker? There is a big difference between 4.4 and 4.2. Also, not to mention Parker is the benefactor of one of the best O-lines in football, which is something Green Bay knows nothing about this season!

For a guy 5'10" 226 lbs, that's pretty damn fast.....

This kid has the same height and weight as Ricky Williams... I wonder what Ricky ran in the 40 back in the day.....

The next Willie Parker?

I'm not so sure I would want to be the next Willie Parker if I was this kid... I mean, who really wants to be an over-rated, under-sized member of a permanent RBBC system?
