Packers lose another scout, this time to the Jets

The Packers have had a deep bench in the personnel department in the past, but some of that is scattering now.

According to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Packers scout Alonzo Dotson is taking a job in the Jets scouting department.

It has been an offseason of change for the Packers front office, beginning with new General Manager Brian Gutekunst taking over for longtime G.M. Ted Thompson.

Then former Packers employee John Dorsey took Alonzo Highsmith and Eliot Wolf with him to Cleveland.

As it relates to Coleman, the change of scenery that would come from a trade could be a welcome development. And so we’ll see whether the Browns get a “decent offer” for his services at some point before training camps open.

Based on Coleman’s first two years, a “decent offer” could be the Browns giving another team a draft pick to take his remaining guaranteed money off the books.

Both the Patriots and the Rams are likely to be awarded two third-round picks next year, according to That’s the best haul of any team.

The Patriots are always smart about getting compensatory picks, which are awarded to teams that lose more free agents, and especially more expensive free agents, than they sign. It’s no surprise to see the atop the list of compensatory picks.

But the Rams’ presence at the top may surprise a lot of people, because the Rams made offseason headlines by attracting a lot of players. How can the Rams get so many compensatory picks after an offseason dominated by headlines about the Rams bringing in big-name players?

The Class of 2011 was incredible: 15 Pro Bowlers selected in the first round, including eight of the top nine picks. Cam Newton, Von Miller, Marcell Dareus, A.J. Green, Patrick Peterson, Julio Jones and Tyron Smith went ahead of Watt.
