Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson has been implored by fans to make a move to help the struggling team and 2 days in advance of the NFL trading deadline, he has. The Packers will send the Jacksonville Jaguars a conditional, 7th round pick next April for veteran safety Anthony Smith. Yes, the same Anthony Smith who signed with Green Bay as a free agent last year, had a decent training camp but was a surprise cut of Thompson's at the end of the pre-season. Aaron Rouse won the backup safety job but he was released a couple of weeks into the season. Smith, a five year veteran out of Syracuse, is familiar with the Packers defensive scheme having started his career in Pittsburgh. He played last fall in St. Louis but was released and hooked on with Jacksonville where he was scheduled to start a third straight week yesterday before packing his bags for Green Bay. There are rumors floating about that the Dallas Cowboys, now 1-4, may unload one of their three running backs, Marion Barber, Julius Jones or Tashard Choice. Reports on ESPN say Barber is the likely candidate and the Packers might be interested. Stay tuned.
