Packers Training Camp 2021 Thread


Recommended Posts

Outside of the obvious, I really want to see what Deguara and even Dafney can do from that HB/TE role. If we can get athletes that can block and catch this offense gets really difficult to defend as long as the trigger man is willing to use all the variations.

I liked what Dafney did last season.  I prefer what I saw from him to what I last saw from Sternberger.  It will be interesting to see how the numbers game plays out.  It is difficult to keep 4+ TEs, and I'm not sure he does anything better than Lewis, Tonyan, or Deguara.

And 2021 training camp is off and running....

Ah yes, a repeat of 2008. If Rodgers really doesn't show up to camp, prepare for Love to get heckled and booed by idiots too

I personally don't fault any of these guys for getting as much as they can get when their contract comes up. I also don't fault the Packers for understanding they have a cap to adhere to, some other guys coming along that are going to need to get paid and you can't pay everyone. Rodgers has three years left on his deal. He's collected 98.5 million dollars on his contract already. 

I think it's a tough but screwed move on the Packers part to NOT pay Davante more than Hopkins got. It's not the Packers fault Arizona was dumb enough to do it. So it would seem the Packers will be without Adams and Rodgers next year. Rodgers maybe this year too. 

It's life in the modern NFL. 

I can understand why Adams would be upset.  He just watched Green Bay pay Bak a record setting deal in a very similar LT market and he was undeniably the better of the 2 players.

Larry Tunsil's contract was every bit the outlier contract that Hopkins has in Arizona and Bak's contract crushed it.  Now they're requiring Adams to play for a significant home team discount if he wants to stay in Green Bay.

Adams is in a lose lose situation.  He either gets screwed over by a low ball contract or he gets screwed over by Green Bay tagging him for the next couple years essentially playing the last bit of his prime years for a front office he hates.

You were on target....he's in a tough spot. ALL the players with contracts and/or extensions coming up are in a challenged spot. AR's cap % has shot to the top and the cap's been cut back drastically - making hard choices necessary - but you tailed off at the end:  I dont think Adams hates the front office.

Here goes Murph talking about buildings and inanimate objects again. 

It's all about finances to the organization.  Wins and losses are secondary to profit and loss.

I disagree - but it is after all a business.  NFL doesnt stand for "Non Profit"

They cant very well be making multimillionaires out of the players if they in fact aren't making coin.
