  1. Green Bay Packers 2019 Offensive Line

    Right, I mean if I believed those things, I would also have no trouble in shipping him out for some value. But I am kinda confused. If he gets benched, that means he didn't "right the ship".
  2. Green Bay Packers 2019 Offensive Line

    well, yea, that is not really a revelation. middling OG's make about $3.5m AAV. that should tell you the league's valuation of them. I agree, if someone offers a 4th, that's tempting, but I just don't think anyone is going to offer even close to that. I agree he's not going to net a compensatory pick, regardless of where he's at. That wasn't the point of bringing it up. I'm willing to risk not getting the return of a 6th/7th rnd pick in order to have some more depth this year while the rookie gets broken in. I'm not comfortable with either Cole or Light. As @AlexGreen#20 has been mentioning, which year are we going to start going "all-in"? Do we still need to be trying to get cute & trying to moneyball the roster over such minimal returns?

    I think the trade value would be pretty low, even if he bounced back to 2017 form of being a middling OG. If losing that production in FA, that’d only net you a 6th or 7th rnd compensatory pick. Not sure what that translates to for a mid-season trade with 1.5 yr left on the deal. Doesn’t save you much monetarily. It only shaves off maybe 35% of his 2019 cap to trade/release in wk 6 (not counting the dead 2020 money that accelerates). So if money is what you’re after, there isn’t much difference between trading him now & cutting him after the season. So it’d be like $1.9m cap savings & a 6th/7th. I think I’d just keep for insurance.
  4. Patriots sign OT Marshall Newhouse

    Not a bad year to have no hands . as long as they are making offensive holding a point of emphasis to flag.
  5. Packers & Bears Postgame

    Might be that Kipp doesn’t know what he’s talking about. The PFF I’m looking at has him at #35 overall Guard & #53 in pass blocking.

    So you’re saying I’m at least a little smart. Thanks
  7. Week 1 Games

    Or, some of us are smart enough not to make knee-jerk reactions.
  8. I think it's funny that you see it as a dogpile or "knob slobbery" just because there is an instance of some members agreeing with a certain position of someone else. You're starting to sound pretty condescending and pretentious. I had you pegged differently.

    Bigotry is bigotry. Period.

    Kool-aid is pumping full-steam here.
  12. Do the Packers have the worst ILB corps in the NFL?

    I'd also add that sometimes guys like that aren't just thinking about the money. They're looking for a place where they have a realistic chance to compete for a starting job. Which means GB would have to pay an even higher premium than usual above those guys' current salaries to convince them to come here and hold a clipboard. And that's assuming those players wouldn't reject the idea outright. Can't just look at the salary and assume GB could have them for [insert salary]+$1.
  13. Packers Cuts Thread

    just shows a lack of knowledge of what is typical in the NFL and with the salary cap. most teams have lots of turnover in a period of 2 years.

    best way to build a team. kinda like SF before Kaep & LA before Goff
  15. Packers Cuts Thread

    Better than nothing, but it’s the closest thing to nothing. Not even a 7th, but just moving up a couple spots in the 7th. Assuming he passes all the Cleveland medical checks.
