The Green Bay Packers were hoping that either Robert Ferguson or Javon Walker would assert themselves as reliable complements to Donald Driver, but that role may now be filled by newly acquired Wesley Walls.

"I have no grand illusion of coming in there and being 'The Man,' " Walls told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I want to be a Green Bay Packer.
