I don't see any harm in bringing Grant back for another shot at the roster.

You, my friend, seriously need to hang out at some sites that don't exclusively cater to just Packers fans. There is a whole wide world out there.

I've been critical of Grant, and he does have his limitations, but I think he's worth a TC spot if he's still got something in the tank. Especially with the injuries we annually suffer at the position.

Well so far Ted is who most thought he would be.

Not gonna get involved in high price FA.

He may sign a couple of 2nd or 3rd tier FA, but nobody who will get anyone on this forum excited.

Next step NFL draft!!!!


Edited original post to keep up with any changes.

buckeye, if that was your call, you were dead nuts on. Kudos man!

I was not seeing the light at the time and have since taken another look at the big picture. I've realized Ted's task to keep Rodgers and Matthews is a bit daunting, especially when you consider he will want to do that in such a way that doesn't kick our asses in the future. If in fact that is his plan. It sure looks like it, and I cannot fault him for not being a player in FA this year. Maybe he is looking more 2014-2017 for a NEW window, allowing our previous window to close a bit.

Zero mentioned our shot was 2011 and 2012 and I agree. It didn't happen, so this seems a prudent way to move forward. Run what you have in 2013 while cutting as many high priced contracts as possible, and let the 2013 chips fall where they may.

You were right. I was wrong. I just wanted us to win so badly, 2011, 2012, and now. But, looking at the bigger picture, now may just have to be what it is so that we can have a future window, with more realistic chances to win it all.

Nobody's "right or wrong" here, I just thought it would be fun to put the whole roster down before FA started and see just how close it was at the start of the season.

I am looking at The Ravens right now, they won the SB, signed their QB to a huge contract, but obviously they were not prepared looking at the # of starters that they had to let go.

Ted seems to always be thinking 3 years ahead, Raji,Mathews,Rodgers contracts are all coming up, along with many more players, bringing in players who might or might not make The Packers better just seems to be to much of a risk.

Just read where Ted signed Francois, and let Crabtree go, gotta go update my roster again!!!! lol

A player I'd like to see the Packers pick up in the 2nd or 3rd round is the Strong Safety out of FIU, Jonathan Cyprien. Haven't really heard much talk about the guy, but he can flat out play. He has good speed, is both a solid tackler and big hitter, and knows how to make plays at the line of scrimmage. Pairing him with Burnett would give the Packers a solid Safety tandem for years to come.

Packers | High on current safeties
Wed, 20 Mar 2013 20:39:43 -0700

One source close to the team said the Green Bay Packers are high on safeties M.D. Jennings, Jerron McMillian and Sean Richardson next to FS Morgan Burnett. The team did not pursue high-priced safeties in the free-agent market, surprising some agents. However, the team feels they might have the answer internally.

uffda udfa: Best looking site out there!
Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
