Wynn Probably Won't

I've seen a lot of chatter about Deshawn Wynn lately. The current thinking is that Wynn might push Grant for playing time (apparently leapfrogging right over Brandon Jackson in the process).

I'm not buying it.

Last season, the Packers kept Lumpkin---an undrafted free agent rookie---over Wynn for a good reason: Lumpkin outplayed Wynn.

After Wynn was cut, teams weren't exactly falling over themselves to sign him. If each team kept 3 running backs that means there were 96 running backs to start the season that were more worthy of a roster spot than Wynn. It took an injury to one of them for Wynn to crack a roster.

Wynn has been a marginal NFL player. I'd love to be surprised here, but I don't see that changing.

An interesting question is: why are so many fans sleeping on Brandon Jackson? If any back on the roster will challenge Grant for playing time, it will be Jackson.
