The Packers claimed WR Rod Gardner off waivers from Carolina. He probably is an improvement over WR Andrae Thurman for the number 3 wide receiver, but that isn't saying much. If Gardner was playing well at all, then Carolina would have probably kept him. Carolina has been desperate for a receiver to play alongside WR Steve Smith all season, and apparently Gardner hasn't done anything to prove himself in Carolina. It is hard to imagine Gardner having any impact for the Packers.
