Date:

Packers extended an "original pick" restricted free agent tender to TE Spencer Havner.

The tender was offered before Thursday's deadline but is just now being reported. Havner failed to catch a pass before landing on injured reserve last November. The special teamer won't be guaranteed a roster spot next season.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel does not expect TE Spencer Havner to be back with the Packers.

Havner landed on injured reserve after just two games with the Packers. His contract is up and the Pack can find cheap special teams help elsewhere.

Packers placed TE Spencer Havner (hamstring) on injured reserve, ending his season.

In his first game since being re-signed in early November, Havner injured his hamstring while playing special teams. It's his second hamstring injury of the season. He's far from a sure bet to resurface with the Packers in 2011.

Packers TE/LB Spencer Havner re-injured his pulled hamstring while playing on special teams in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Havner was active for the first time since being re-signed by the Packers on November 12. He was primarily being used on special teams before pulling up lame.

Packers signed TE/LB Spencer Havner, formerly of the Lions.

Havner was waived/injured by Detroit earlier this season after sustaining a torn hamstring in Week 5. He'll focus on special teams for Green Bay.

TE/LB Spencer Havner was brought in for a physical by the Packers.

Recently waived by the Lions, Havner had been battling a hamstring injury. The undrafted, one-time Packer is versatile since he plays both sides of the ball, but won't be signed if his injury continues to linger.

Lions waived/injured ILB Spencer Havner (hamstring).

Havner posted six tackles in five games. He'll be placed on injured reserve if he clears waivers.

Lions ILB Spencer Havner (hamstring) said he won’t know more about his status until Wednesday.

With DeAndre Levy not expected to play in Week 6, the Lions are really hoping Havner is healthy enough to play this weekend. They might look to bring in some linebacker help either way.

The Lions announced their acquisition of Spencer Havner on Monday, and listed him as a linebacker.

Will Heller is safe as the third tight end behind Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Scheffler. Havner's main role will be on special teams, but he'll also likely back up DeAndre Levy at middle linebacker with Rocky Boiman gone.

Lions claimed TE Spencer Havner off waiver from the Packers.

Unless the Lions want to carry four tight ends, Will Heller could be the odd man out. Havner, a productive special teamer with some playmaking ability (four TDs on seven catches last year), he's the ideal No. 3 tight end.

Packers waived TE Spencer Havner.

Green Bay's tight end depth chart looks like this: Jermichael Finley, Donald Lee, Andrew Quarless, Tom Crabtree. Havner can cover kicks, and doesn't have bad hands. He's certainly worth a flier for a tight end-needy team.

The Packers will release TE Spencer Havner if they can't find a trade partner.

Havner appeared on the watch list of several fantasy owners last season after racking up four touchdowns in a four-week span at mid-season. Tom Crabtree, undrafted out of Miami (OH) in 2009, appears to have beaten him out for a roster spot. Donald Lee's spot is secure.
Sat, Sep 4, 2010 03:13:00 PM

Packers TE Spencer Havner will play some linebacker in the Packers' preseason opener on Saturday.

Havner was a linebacker at UCLA, though he's probably only getting snaps on defense as preparation for an in-season emergency. He's won the Packers' third tight end job, and could jump up the depth chart if Donald Lee is cut.

The Nevada County (Calif.) district attorney's office found insufficient evidence to charge Packers TE Spencer Havner with drunken driving after crashing his motorcycle last month.

The D.A.'s office is sending the case back to California Highway Patrol for further investigation. Havner isn't off the hook quite yet, though the case against him is obviously weak.
