TEXANS, PACK SWAP TAILBACKS

A league source tells us that the Green Bay Packers have shipped running back Samkon Gado to the Houston Texans in exchange for running back Vernand Morency.

Gado, an undrafted free agent signed by the Packers in 2005, was one of the few brights spots in the team's dismal 4-12 season, rushing for 582 yards and getting five starts. He played college ball at Division I-AA Liberty, and plans to go to medical school when his football career ends. He had two carries for -7 yards on Sunday.

Morency was a third-round pick of the Texans in 2005. He rushed for 184 yards for the season. Morency had one carry for five yards in the regular season opener.

The move reunites Gado with former Packers head coach Mike Sherman, who is assistant head coach of the Texans.
Evidently Kubiak and Sherman don't share the affection of many here for Morency.

This guy can pound the ball and he is a between the tackles kind of runner, I think he will require less work as a project than Morency for Kubiak... Big problem is he fumbles way to often. But he is explosive

Anyone know if it was a 1on1 trade, or if any other picks/players are involved ?

I was led to believe few of the coaches liked him...so much for that tripe I guess. Our first day pick for an UFA? If Morency blows up in GB I'm gonna be ill.

seams like an good move to me. He runs a 4.47 40, with some power. After his football days are over, he says that he want to be a doctor.

Here is a nice article on Gado http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=489603

In the article it talks about why the new coaching staff is down on Gado. Green Bay is switching to a zone blocking system and Gado is not picking it up well.

I thought Morency was coming along very well. I would have started him and I don't get this at all. I guess anyone who wasn't chosen by this regime, other than Carr, AJ, and Robinson, is hanging on by a thread. I don't know anything about this GB guy, except that he's a UFA from Sherman's old team.

Well, now in 3 days we've been beaten badly in game 1 and lost the guy who I thought was our best (remaining anyway) RB. All I can do is throw up my hands and wonder why.

Is this true or some kind of sick early April Fool's joke? What? Huh? Someone tell me this is a nightmare? Gado for Morency? I just threw up a little in my mouth. Morency was hands down our best back in preseason, WTH???????????

Samkon has proven that he can carry the load in Green Bay. He's got more experience (even though not much more) than Morency, and most of all, he's shown he can get the job done. If he can just do what he did last year, I think we got the good end of the deal.

The Packers seemed to like Noah Herron a lot and Morency will start as the #3 back there, so it will be awhile before he gets in there and starts, if he does. Also, I think Samkon is 3 years or so younger than Morency so hopefully Samkon will be with us for awhile. Since I live in the area, I must say, a lot of Green Bay fans really liked Samkon and will be upset with this trade.

And an undrafted free agent for a 3rd round pick means nothing. That was a year ago. Would you trade Eric Winston for Mike Bell? Things change. All this means is that Green Bay hit the jackpot with Gado.

Gado started 5 games last season and sure got the job done, but how could we trade our best back for this guy??????????? I have trusted most decisions made by Kubaik and Co. up to this point, but if this is true I think I am gonna cry.

Green Bay message boards reporting the same thing.

They feel THEY are getting the raw deal.

We'll see, I like Gado, I like Morency also.

Any good confirmation yet?

The reason we can trade our best back is because Lundy maybe a little worse if I want to be negative. Lundy is not a huge drop off from Morency, so at the worst possible scenario where Gado is horrible, it won't hurt us that bad. But yes, like I said before, the Packers fans are upset at trading Gado. They've seen him play more than we have, so they know what they've lost. And so do we with Morency. That's why we both feel we got screwed. It's a pretty even trade if you ask me, but Samkon has played in more games and has done more than Morency has. It's not like Morency went out there and had a 100 yard game and we traded him.

Tack another one of our first day pick that are not on the team anymore...

I think we need to be looking for some safety help.
