Cutting defensive back Charles Woodson fits perfectly with the Packers’ approach to the business of football. Using the franchise tag on receiver Greg Jennings doesn’t.

But that’s what the Packers are considering doing, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. And that would cost the Packers more than $10 million in real dollars and cap dollars for 2013.

With Jennings turning 30 later this year and missing half of the 2012 regular season, spending that much money doesn’t make much sense, given the way the Packers do business.

Moreover, the Packers have three receivers under contract who, according to one of them, each can generate more than 1,000 yards receiving in 2013.

So we’ll believe that G.M. Ted Thompson will plunk down $10.36 million for an aging luxury when he does it. Until then, it just doesn’t fit with how the Packers do things.

Even if they do it, it still doesn’t fit.

Interesting to hear the #Packers are still considering franchising Greg Jennings. Thought that ship had sailed. Apparently not.

Yeah, there is a lot of buzz about this right now. Zero2Cool, you called it. I'm still a bit skeptical, because it is a lot of cash. However, could be a one year deal for his services, which could make some sense.

My concern is why tag a player who looks to want out? But, this is all business.

I could see this only if a trade partner had come to Ted Thompson at the combine,

But that seems to be a little too shady for Ted.

Yeah, I'm not really buying this either, but what do I know. If Ted was somehow able to work out a tag and trade, that would be awesome, though. It just seems like a long-shot. Jennings has made it clear he doesn't want to be tagged.

EDIT: This doesn't really seem like information the Packers would let leak either, although I suppose in the trade scenario it could have been the other team.

Keep things honest, straightforward, etc. No system manipulation, and no hosing players other than the business-is-business aspect.

Greg Jennings deserves whatever payday his career has earned him, coupled with the needs of other teams.

I think I would prefer (as a fan) to just let 'em go vs. franchise tags, etc. especially with Ted running our show-- Frankly, imo, that is one of his strengths.

I like Jennings a lot, but some shit has to give, $$$- wise, so we gotta get over it, imo

I think Philbin may want Jennings in Miami, and by giving up a 2nd or 3rd in a tag-n-trade situation - he assures he gets Greg without having to outbid the other teams.

I can only see how this happens if the Packers and his agent were discussing a contract and the possibility of being tagged came up, then the agent runs to a "source" saying "Packers are considering trading Jennings". Even if they didn't have such discussion, it benefits the client of the agent to make this tidbit known. It makes his client seem desired.

The only reason I can see a tag-and-trade is if Jennings is coming to understand he is not going to break the bank like he thinks he will.

As far as coaching him, I’ve always enjoyed coaching him. He’s a damn good football player, he’s a great fit for what we do. He’s in this position for a reason on both sides of it, that’s why you take the time and these things work out.
