Packers sign RT Rick Wagner

Recommended Posts

Definitely a stop gap move. Wagner doesn't suck but isn't a long term answer. If they value is there in round 1 this year, I'd still go OT.

Now watch it all come crumbling down with using all our remaining cap space on Hooper and trading our first round pick for Hopkins to end up with nobody at IDL.  Look like a contender winning 15 games.  Beat the Niners in a revenge game in the divisional round, then have to sit through Alvin Kamara and Taysum Hill run for 300 yards against our utter lack of a presence outside of Kenny Clark.

I’m saying it now so it doesn’t happen.  If we don’t significantly address our IDL, nothing else matters.

Yay. Thank you browns!

Thank them when they trade us Njoku for a 5'th round pick.

Can you interpret this for me?

Brit Pack confirmed to be a bot

I just want to thank the Cleveland Browns for being the dumbest organization in football. Hooper is now the highest paid TE in all of football and he's NOT a Packer! hallelujah!

It's not like Bulaga was the picture of health either.  OL are always banged up- it's the nature of the position.

I wouldn't compare the two. Different tiers of tackles.

Nice upside deal for a patch. Similar to Kirksey, he’s got a lot of the cap hit (13%) tied to health. Easily cut-able in Y2 if things don’t work out or if they stumble on a stud rookie OT in the draft. 
 

graded well except for last yr. even last yr, graded as the #23 OT over his last 5 games. #41 over his last 7g (including only 1sack & 1 QB hit). That’s perfectly fine for your 2nd-best OT. 
 

I wonder where this leaves Taylor, now that it looks like there is less chance of them shifting Turner to RT. Maybe can cut for a big FA swing over the next few days, or just keep for the OL depth and competition next camp.

Alwayd thought Wagner would make a great G and then he was good enough at T. Similar to Kirksey I don't see this preventing a 1st round T.

Bill O'brien might give us JJ Watt and $10M cash for Lane Taylor.

I’m certain Gutekunst has plenty of intell on what Bulaga’s market value is, but it will still be interesting to see how much he earns on the free agent market. Huber, the SI writer, makes a “No $h_t Sherlock” statement when he says,However, replacing Bulaga with Rick Wagner can’t possibly be viewed as an upgrade from a pure performance perspective. Really ?!? 

BB simply played his way out of Green Bay by having a stellar 2019 season. Good for him, too bad for the Packers. We’ll see how well Gute’s patch job works out, but he’s undoubtedly done his homework of Wisconsinite Wagner.

Meantime, I still GB will try to keep Veldheer on board. If that comes to fruition it gives Gute even more flexibility to wait for a quality young tackle to fall to him in the draft.

Now this is getting really interesting!

I like how Gute has started things. Like it has been said in both the new FA threads, this gives us breathing room so we can really focus up in the draft and continue to add talent to this roster. I hope we give this offense some weapons for year dos.
