What are they thinking??

I believe GB is now trying to outplay Minnesota for dumb players with this signing...

From TSN,

The Packers signed Smith on Monday to give the team some more depth at running back. Carolina placed him on paid leave after a drunk driving incident in November and cut him in March. He started 11 games for the Panthers last season and rushed for 737 yards and seven touchdowns.
Fantasy Spin: Here's another sign that the Packers are concerned that Ahman Green's knee problem could be chronic. Smith has scored 27 touchdowns in the past three years, so he can get it done if he's starting. Consider him a decent reserve if he becomes Green's backup. (Rob Hurtt/TSN)

Just goes to show you how slim the pickings are at RB.

I had Green last yr and ive been wondering about his knee.This is worrying news for guys who have him in keeper leagues.

Davenport is suppose to be number 2 there but you never know when he'll decide to go take a dump in the girls dorm room again so guess he needed a driver, so they signed Lamar Smith to take him there :-t

This just seems like a waste of cap space IMO. GB has a loaded backfield with Green, Davenport, and Fisher. All three proved they could play last year and there is no reason to go out and grab a 4th rb. Davenport and Fisher put up good #'s last year when Green went down I just dont understand this move.
