Being a Green Bay Packers fan I don't find freeagency exciting at all anymore.



Me either. I prefer the playoffs.

Conditions/Events
Greg Jennings Leaves via FA
J. Finley signs new contract
Charles Woodson restructures current contract
Derrick Sherrod is ready for TC
Jerel Worthy is ready for TC
Ted will NOT make any draft day trades or sign any BIG NAME FA’s.

Currently I see 50 of the 53 spots taken, now there will be injuries during TC that will change that #, if Worthy and Sherrod are not ready that’s 2 more spots, if Finley and Woody do not come to some kind of agreement that’s 2 more.

So there could be as few as 3 and as many as 7 spots for Draft Picks, UDFA’s and FA signings to compete over at the beginning of TC.

Packers have 7 draft picks, I am not going to try and guess when and who but just going to take a shot at positions,


Ted will draft:

1RB, 1FB, 1 C, 2 DT’s, 1 WR and 1 S

The most important thing to happen(IMHO) is to set the O-line early in TC and keep those 5 guys together playing as 1 unit as much as possible.

O-line starters from L-R
Newhouse, Lang, Dietrich Smith, Sitton, Bulaga




SP TM(3)..Crosby, Goode, Masthay……………………………........................….3
QB(2)…Rodgers, Harrell,…..Coleman(1 PS)
RB(3)…Green, Harris, Saine
FB(1)….Kuhn
WR(5)…Nelson, Jones, Cobb, Boykin, Ross
TE(5)….Finley, Crabtree, Quarless, Taylor, Williams
OT(4)…Bulaga, Barclay, Newhouse, Sherrod
OG(3)…Sitton, Lang, Van Roten
C(1)…Dietrich-Smith…………………………………………..............................…24

DT(2)…Pickett, Raji
DE(4)…Daniels, Neal, Wilson, Worthy
LB(8)…Hawk, Mathews, Bishop, Moses, Perry, Smith, Jones, Manning
S(3)…Jennings, McMillian, Richardson
CB((5)...Williams, Shields, House, Hayward, Bush
DB(1)…Woodson……………………………………………....................................…….23

On The Bubble, fighting for job with draft picks or will not be back
Robert Francois, James Lattimore, Eric Walden(gone), Frank Zombo, James Starks, Cederick Benson.

Fighting for spot on PS with draft picks and UDFA’s
B.J. Coleman(only because Harrell is not eligible), C Garth Gerhart, OG Joe Gibbs
OT Andrew Datko, OT Kevin Hughes, TE Brandon Bostick, LB Micah Johnson, S Chaz Powell, DT Jordan Miller, CB James Nixon


Have fun tearing it up boys, but no matter what most think, when healthy this team is pretty solid across the board.



Eric Walden gone, probably means Lattimore is going to stay.

All ready to add Steven Jackson!!!! Do i/ Don't I?
Guess not quite yet.

Well no Steven Jackson, wonder if Ted will sign someone like Beanie Wells or Micheal Turner(hope not on either), I'm guessing he will draft a RB at some point and let the guys already on the roster fight it out.

I don't see the Packers signing a RB that they didn't have on the roster last year, other than a draft selection, or undrafted rookie. There's no point in trying to.

Starks needs to stay low, run behind his pads more. Maybe that will keep him healthy.

Green will have a year separating himself from the knee surgery, so maybe he'll get some burst back. I think he was learning how to get what he could from Benson last year. I thought he was hitting the hole better, not always hesitating, trying to go for the home run. Still he's an ideal third down type of guy. Not necessarily "the man."

DuJuan needs to keep doing what he's doing. Don't let up, don't lose the fire.

Brandon Saine is the wild card. I really like this dude's skill set. Mike had high praise for him two years ago. Hope he comes back strong.

As for Kuhn, stick a fork in him.

#27 Posted : Thursday, March 14, 2013 5:11:20 PM(UTC)
When Saine went down last year I pretty much thought that would be it for him.

UDFA's only get so many chances.

Then I head Mike say on his tv show that he really didn't get to Talk with Brandon much, the reason, because Saine did everything right and he did not have to worry about him.

Still hoping he comes back healthy and ready!!!!

Mike said he was the most reliable of the RBs in 2011, which was his rookie year, and he was picking up blitzers on 3rd down.

nerdman, I actually agree with you on all counts over here. You should stick to football hahahaha. In addition to what you say, I'd like to see Ryan Grant kept as a backup RB and occasional FB - with Kuhn gone.

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.
