Would be cool to see him retire the active leader!

What would be even cooler... is if Tramon helped the Packers win another Title -  and then retired on his 38th B-day, matching his jersey number
 

February 38th,

Today, # 38,  38 year old Tramon Williams retired  with 38 INTs in his career and 2 Rings on his fingers

Acme Packing -  Green Bay could ultimately replace Randall Cobb with another versatile Kentucky star

While General Manager Brian Gutekunst has clearly preferred wide receivers with substantial size and athleticism, the Packers’ offense really struggled without a viable slot receiver in year one without Cobb. While Green Bay’s reported interest in Denzel Mims does nothing to suggest the Packers are targeting a slot receiver early in this year’s draft, there could be a Cobb-like receiver from the very same school available.

Lynn Bowden was a true jack-of-all-trades for the Wildcats, acting as a rusher, receiver, return man, and quarterback (starter for the last eight games as senior) over his career. This versatility is comparable to Cobb’s days at Kentucky, but there are even more similarities. From a size perspective, one inch of height separates the two and their arm lengths are different by one inch as well. Neither impressed on the bench at the Combine (Cobb’s 16 reps to Bowden’s 13) and their hand sizes were also quite similar (Cobb’s 9 3/8” to Bowden’s 9 3/4”). Both were praised for their toughness coming out of college and neither had top-end speed despite being multifaceted players.

Bowden is a prospect in the second- or third-round territory at this point in the draft process, but could be an interesting piece for an offense looking for more creativity. I truly believe Green Bay would benefit from straying from the norm and adding a more elusive, shiftier player - Bowden or someone else - early in the draft.

I thought the same thing and I've been seeing him sliding down some boards.

Trails Talib and Sherman by one (both at 35).

That pick six is one of my top 5 packer plays of all time.  I went absolutely nuts when it happened .. it literally took the life out of the Falcons and that stadium.  Game Over!!

Joe Kipp -  Random thought.....

Super Bowl XLV may have had the greatest collection of wide receiver talent in a single game in NFL history.

Packers:
Greg Jennings
Donald Driver
James Jones
Jordy Nelson

Steelers:
Hines Ward
Mike Wallace
Antwaan Randle El
Emmanuel Sanders
Antonio Brown
