It’s a lot of speculation.
Guys throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks.
It never hurts to check out all possibilities. It doesn’t mean they are REALLY interested.

Anyone wonder if we were always in these talks but just were more private about it?

Yes, I have wondered that for a long time, if the Packers we're checking or if they just assumed they would be out or decided they were uninterested or what did and didn't happen.

Then again, I'm still wondering as we know that they have talked once... that doesn't mean they are even in the same state of being in the race to sign them.

The Packers did talk, it was just a footnote after the player signed and got very little to no attention. I do think having it publicized that we are talking is an attractive sign to free agents. It kind says, hey, they do wanna sign people, whereas the hush-hush Ted Thompson approach left everyone believing we don't want free agents as the only indication of a free agent being talked to was if they were signed. Remember, Julius Peppers had a tour and everything and no one knew until VOILA, he signed. I struggle to believe Peppers was the only player to fly under the radar with a tour and talks.

Back when Ted was in charge it didn't pay for the media jackals to even bring it up because everyone would just say "yeah right" now that Gute has said he is going to be more active in FA they throw everybody's name out there because "Yeah maybe"

I don't doubt that Ted talked to a lot more agents than we will ever know about but I'm also convinced that Gute will talk to some that Ted wouldn't have considered.

As far as Robinson goes if I'm going to go after a Jags receiver I'd rather have Lee.

Ted did due diligence and always had a number. Question is, will Gute pay more than Ted?

gbguy20 (3h) : no one said tonyan is better than graham but it sure seems the general consensus is beginning to lean toward cutting graham rather than paying him another 10 million
beast (4h) : I like Tonyan, but this nonsense (that's growing though out Packers fans) that Tonyan is better than Graham is just like the nonsense about Aaron Rouse being better than Nick Collins in 2007...
beast (4h) : Tonyan got down field once when the OL COMPLETELY OWNED the DL on one play and Rodgers and ALL DAY to hold the ball!
Zero2Cool (5h) : is Tonyan faster? I'd be good cutting Graham and using Tonyan more. I've seen him stretch the field. Graham with busted thumb = terrible
gbguy20 (5h) : can't say there would be much difference, aside from tonyan being way faster
nerdmann (6h) : You gonna go with Tonyan?
gbguy20 (7h) : the dude needs to go after this year
nerdmann (7h) : Bring him back until you develop a guy. That takes a year or two.
nerdmann (7h) : I look at Graham as Chmura, without the blocking.
nerdmann (7h) : Dude was on pace for the all time production record for TEs, broke his damn thumb.
nerdmann (7h) : 46 receptions isn't bad.
packerfanoutwest (7h) : many free agents don't want to play in GB,,,and you know why. Graham played for the money
Nonstopdrivel (10h) : Graham has 46 receptions on 77 targets.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Graham should sit until his broken thumb is better.
gbguy20 (12h) : careful rabidgopher, half the forum will attack you if you say that here.
rabidgopher04 (12h) : Jimmy Graham rarely catches the ball when it comes his way.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Graham: 'My numbers suck' in Green Bay
Zero2Cool (16h) : @NicholasJOlson Stefon Diggs currently has 88 catches without a single drop.
Nonstopdrivel (21h) : I'm pissed I missed it. I fell asleep on the couch.
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : 11 comeback wins by Philip Rivers down 14 points or more. Insane stat.
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : Big Fucking Balls by the Chargers. What a game!!!
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : And the refs don't call the helmet to helmet
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : I hate cheap 3rd down penalties for automatic first downs.
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : Nick Foles probably take them on a winning streak to set up a QB controversy
gbguy20 (14-Dec) : poor guy
gbguy20 (14-Dec) : oh wow
Nonstopdrivel (14-Dec) : Carson Wentz has a fractured backbone. Will likely deal with impotence for the rest of his life.
TheKanataThrilla (14-Dec) : KC & Chargers hopefully this lives up to the hype.
nerdmann (14-Dec) : Leave more of those bigger faster guys for us.
nerdmann (14-Dec) : Teams are going with this smaller quicker WRs
nerdmann (14-Dec) : lol
Zero2Cool (13-Dec) : Probably a good sign you should change your system. dumbass
Zero2Cool (13-Dec) : Mark Davis: Amari Cooper is “a great, great player” who didn’t fit our system
gbguy20 (13-Dec) : Byron bell to ir
Zero2Cool (12-Dec) : @ProFootballTalk Taysom Hill named NFC special teams player of the week
