    or faster at the 2018 NFL Combine. The Green Bay Packers now have four of them on their roster Blake Martinez Color Rush Jersey , as astute Twitter user @buzzboy3 noted on Thursday.Green Bay drafted cornerback Jaire Alexander and his 4.38 speed with their first selection in the draft last April, then picked up wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (4.37) in round five. Following final cuts, general manager Brian Gutekunst also signed cornerback Tony Brown, he of the 4.35-second time, to the practice squad. Brown has since been promoted to the active roster to bolster an oft-injured cornerback unit.Then on Wednesday, the Packers made a handful of roster transactions, one of which was claiming defensive back Natrell Jamerson on waivers. The former Wisconsin Badgers DB is the fourth player to hit that time cutoff in the 40, running in 4.40 flat at the Combine. Originally a fifth-round draft pick of the New Orleans Saints, Jamerson failed to make it through final cuts, but was immediately scooped up by the Houston Texans. After suiting up for the team’s first ten games, Jamerson then sat out the past two weeks before his release on Tuesday. Jamerson joins Alexander, second-round pick Josh Jackson, and Brown as DBs who we listed on the Packers’ potential draft boards prior to April’s selection meeting. Interestingly, although Jamerson was listed as a safety at the Combine and on the Texans’ roster, the Packers have him as a cornerback on theirs.Jamerson’s size (5-foot-11, 201 pounds) and speed do make him a candidate to play corner as well as safety, and his lateral quickness helps as well. Although NFL Draft Scout published his 3-cone time as 7.07 seconds, Wisconsin’s officially-reported time was 6.87, right at the ideal cutoff time that we assumed this spring. His workouts earned him a value of 8.21 out of 10 on the RAS scale, putting him in the upper fifth of safeties in terms of overall athletic ability.He also has a knack for big plays with the football; he scored a touchdown in the East-West Shrine Game in January on a fumble return. Jamerson then appeared to score a fumble return touchdown in week eight against the Miami Dolphins, but a replay review showed that quarterback Brock Osweiler’s arm was going forward and the play was ruled an incomplete pass. That comes in addition to a pair of touchdowns in college, one on a kickoff return as a sophomore and one on a pick-six as a senior.As a cornerback, Jamerson appears well-suited to play a slot corner role for the Packers , having lined up there often in Madison during his three years as a defensive back. He also has the aforementioned kick-return ability, which could come in handy for a Packers squad that saw return specialist Trevor Davis go on injured reserve for the second time this year. Finally, Jamerson is talented on kick and punt coverage as well, serving as a gunner on those teams for years.Even if Jamerson does not see much playing time on defense in the final four weeks of the season, he should get some run on special teams. He now has a month-long opportunity to show that he deserves to at least stay with the Packers through next year’s training camp. Once Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings took the lead on Green Bay, they played with a fierce refusal to let it go.They held onto the ball with the same determination.Cousins bounced back from his worst game of the season with聽342 passing yards and three touchdowns聽without a fumble or an interception, and the Vikings overcame some early gaffes to outlast the depleted Packers for a 24-17 victory on Sunday night.Completing 29 of his 38 attempts, Cousins found聽Dalvin Cook聽, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen for scores. Diggs and Thielen had eight receptions apiece.“It just kind of shows his character, shows what kind of player he is, to be able to just not really care what people talk about him, not really care about what happened last week,” Thielen said of Cousins, adding: “The throws he was making, his full game was really impressive. That’s what you expect out of him.”Sheldon Richardson had two sacks to lead the defense’s game-long stifling of Aaron Rodgers, and the Vikings (6-4-1) pushed the Packers (4-6-1) further back in the NFC wild card race.The Vikings won a night game for the first time this season after losing to the top three teams in the NFC: to the Rams in Los Angeles, at home to the New Orleans Saints and at Chicago in a two-interception game by Cousins against the first-place Bears. The Vikings entered the weekend with the fourth-most turnovers in the NFL, and Cousins has been charged with 13 of the 16 giveaways. Coach Mike Zimmer was so impressed by the way Cousins played against the Packers that聽he gave him the game ball in the locker room afterward聽.“Last week left a bad taste in our mouths,” Cousins said, “and the chance to come back on Sunday night football against a division rival at home was a great opportunity, and I’m glad we made the most of it.”Rodgers threw a聽touchdown pass to Davante Adams聽and聽Aaron Jones scored on a short run聽for a 14-7 lead early in the second quarter, but the Packers fell to 0-6 on the road this season and 1-5-1 against the Vikings in their last seven meetings. Their final seven possessions produced only one field goal, with five punts and one turnover on downs.“We’ve all got to play better Aaron Jones Jersey , myself included,” Rodgers said. “Started off the game nice. We had a couple good drives. We’re rolling there. We hit our unfortunate typical lull and didn’t get it going again.”With Randall Cobb out (hamstring) for a sixth game this season and rookies Equanimeous St. Brown (elbow) and Trevor Davis (hamstring) forced out in the second half, Rodgers didn’t have much to work with down the field. Left guard Lane Taylor (quadriceps) departed in the first half and left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee) was sidelined in the second half, leaving the protection shaky at best. Rodgers finished 17 for 28 for 198 yards, without a turnover.The Packers failed to move the chains on eight of 10 third downs. Jones was stuffed on fourth-and-inches by Harrison Smith, Danielle Hunter and Eric Kendricks midway through the third quarter, giving the Vikings the ball at the Green Bay 44. That set up a 37-yard field goal by Dan Bailey for Minnesota’s first lead of the game.“We’re definitely not in the position, record-wise, we thought we would be in coming into the year or even after this game. We thought we could get the victory. But unfortunately we ran out of gas,” Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said. “We’re beat up, no doubt about that. But give them credit: They put in a full four quarters.”SLOW STARTThe Vikings outgained the Packers 280-139 in total yardage in the first half, but they had to settle for a tie at the break. About to go for it on fourth-and-inches on the opening drive following a timeout to strategize, they were penalized for 12 men on the field and had to punt.Diggs collided with Thielen when Jaire Alexander crashed their pick play on the second possession, and after Diggs tried to circle back the other way with an ill-fated salvage attempt he lost 10 yards on that reception to lead to another punt.Bailey’s wide left 48-yard try wasted聽another highlight-reel catch by Thielen聽in between Alexander and Josh Jones that went for 33 yards. Later in the second quarter, after some mismanagement of the clock, the Vikings had to hustle to set up a 51-yard kick for Bailey. That one was good, but Rashod Hill was called for a false start. The 56-yarder sliced right, the fifth straight missed field goal against the Packers after rookie Daniel Carlson went 0 for 3 in Green Bay and was cut the next day.PACKED AND HAPPY HOUSEThe announced attendance of 66,872 was the largest for the Vikings in three years at U.S. Bank Stadium. A handful of Minnesota players were introduced in the first quarter with Paul Bunyan’s Axe, the trophy the Gophers repossessed from the rival Badgers in Wisconsin on Saturday to end a 14-game losing streak. Randy Moss kept the crowd fired up in a halftime ceremony to receive his Pro Football Hall of Fame ring.INJURY REPORTPackers: In addition to the carnage on offense, SS Kentrell Brice aggravated an ankle injury in the first quarter and was knocked out of action in the third quarter with a possible concussion. CB Kevin King and CB Bashaud Breeland were already inactive with injuries.Vikings: RT Brian O’Neill left in the third quarter for evaluation for a possible concussion. … CB Xavier Rhodes limped off with an apparent injury to his right hamstring in the fourth quarter.UP NEXTPackers: Host Arizona (2-9) next Sunday afternoon.Vikings: Play at New England (8-3) next Sunday afternooN.
