Espn is now reporting that the Bills are looking for a trade partner for Safety Jarius Byrd, So do we throw a mid to high round draft pick for him? He is in a franchise tag year so we would have to get a deal done before all would happen. I was just wondering what others thought of the idea of bringing him in? I say we pass because it will cost alot of money for his new contract.

Not Ted's M.O.

He's not going to spend a lot of money this early in the season, way to many current Packers whos contracts need to be addressed by next year.

I think The Organization as a whole are happy with the talent they have, just got to get them all back healthy and on the field.

Now if a team would straight up release a proven vet at Safety, and Ted decided that player could be an upgrade and wouldn't cost an arm and a leg, then he might pull the trigger on a deal like that.

It doesn't matter. Packers have no depth anywhere on the roster.

What about a guy like Sherrod? Or Bulaga?

Just a thought.

Why would any team want either of them? Bryan Bulaga I can see, maybe, but that's a stretch.

James Starks would be more likely. He played at Buffalo.

Ted won't give up draft picks.

Jarius Byrd will not be traded to the Packers.

1) Davon House.
2) The fact that no team can extend Byrd until after the season comes to an end.

A similar situation worked out well for the Patriots and Aqib Talib. I remember several people here were blasting the Patriots for making that trade and saying the Patriots wouldn't be able to resign him to a contract extension and that he would leave after that season ended. As I expected, they resigned him and he is now a solid player for that team.

Of course, the Packers don't take any risks like that, really, even if it meant potentially improving the team.

Talib was traded for a 7th round pick, very low risk for the pats, after repeated legal issues. Not really a comparable situation.

That and he wasn't looking to be the highest paid player at his position

IR ILB Francois (if he has a Torn achilles)

Sign TE Stoneburner to the 53 man roster.

And trade TE Finley to the Bills for S Byrd.



Not saying they should do that, just saying it's possible.
