  1. Green Bay Packers 2019 Offensive Line

    Sorry AG, but 3rd to 5th round draft picks are not going to make 65% of the 4.5 million we'd spend on Lane Taylor on a 1 year deal in your scenario. Not even close from a cap standpoint. I guess my point is guys move on in free agency. Now if Taylor is starting next year, that is a deal at 4.5 million. Right now we have, besides him, Turner, Jenkins, Linsley, Patrick, McCray and Madison inside. It's too early to tell if any of those guys are going to beat out Lane Taylor at LG. If he's the starter he's getting a lot more than 4.5 million somewhere to play. If he's a back up this year, he's getting more than 4.5 million somewhere to start because he's proven to be dependable when healthy. Look what Billy Turner just got and he's no better, IMO, than Lane Taylor. I just don't agree with paying a back up interior offensive lineman 2.25% of your cap. We're not exactly sitting in the greatest of shape next year either, cap wise. Not terrible but not great with Martinez and Clark up soon for new deals. Not to mention if Kevin King stays healthy he's heading into year 4 next year. We can agree to disagree on this one!

    It's just as likely that he could get considerably more than that on the open market. It is also very likely if we would allow him to walk, we'd grab another guy in the draft in round 3-5 for a lot less than 4.5 million. We also have Cole Madison who many thought would start last year. Just my opinion but you don't spend 2% (closer to 3% actually) of your cap on an interior offensive line back up.

    In this scenario you'd keep a back up interior offensive lineman for 4.5 million a year? I think that is the epitome of bad cap management IMO.
  4. It's a combination of both. You have to have both and it appears as though we do now have both.
  5. Yeah, no he didn't. If you give Diggs an out because of his OC, then what about Adams with NO QB on 2017 when Rodgers went down. Adams is a lot better than either of them.

    I want to like Patrick but he had chances to win starting job in past and could never take the leap. I'm guessing Jenkins is the back up center so we could also be going with 8 offensive linemen. I think that is a mistake.
  7. You are correct, he's probably right after those 5.
  8. Clowney Franchise Tag

    So it should cost you over 28 million to franchise a kicker or punter? smh It should be easy, the position you played the majority of your snaps is where you get franchised.
  9. Green Bay Packers 2019 Offensive Line

    I think those 8 make it and possibly a ninth in McCray.
  10. Clark should have been #5 IMO. EDIT: Davante Adams not named as a top 10 WR is a joke!
  11. Clowney Franchise Tag

    Seems to me the Texans know how to piss off one of their better players in an effort to save a little money by trying to cheat. This is just bad business. If you couldn't afford the tag number, you could have scored big with a trade.
  12. Clowney Franchise Tag

    Might be a Le'veon Bell situation.
  13. Clowney Franchise Tag

    How do teams get away with mis-tagging a guy to get a lower number. Clowney played over 90% of his snaps on the defensive line, yet the Texans tag him as a LB to get a lower price. This needs to be fixed in next CBA. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/27194822/clowney-get-deal-deadline
  14. Who's your 2019 Breakout Player

    He's just got to get a little stronger and break a few of those tackles and he's going to score, a lot.
  15. Top 5 Packers Age 25 or Younger?

    No, but Prescott is not under 25, in fact, he'll be 26 in two weeks.
