I think we're heard about a number of the big names, but maybe talk about some of the less hyped guys.

Giants released CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie due to salary. So he potentially could be cheaper and while he's not a long term solution, he does seem to have the size and length that the Packers seem to be looking for and he's always been fairly athletic. Though he has admitted that he's better when a coach pushes him hard and really gets on him, I think the Packers have a DB coach that can do that. Also he can plus both inside and out.

Seahawks don't sound like they're interested in resigning RB Eddie Lacy, who had a horrible year, and while Lacy has normally disliked the offseason, it sounded like he was relieved this offseason was finally hear, so he could attack his offseason work as he sounded more motivated than ever to get a great offseason in... a motivated Lacy in the offseason might be the perfect thing for him, and if a team can sign him cheap (with incentives) and put a half decent OL in front of him, he could potentially break out again, like averaging 5.2 yards per carry like he did when he was last with the Packers.

Colts RB Frank Gore has been turning out 1,000 yard seasons with a horrible OL... what could he do with a better OL, QB and offensive system? Though the downside is he's about to turn 35 at a position that normally drops off at 30... but he's a different back than any of the current RB and might be a great short term mentor.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson and/or Redskins WR Ryan Grant... both just had big breakout seasons for their team. I'm more interested in Richardson, because I think he's more explosive, younger and he's been playing with a question OL and used to a QB scrambling around. But there is also Grant, who has trained with Devantae Adam, hasn't missed a game in his career (yet) and the last time the Packers got a Ryan Grant out of the NFC East, he turned out to be pretty good.

My eyes would be on DRC and Richardson. Price concerns me though. This is not a value-based free agency period at the moment. We may need to wait for a deal to come. Plus, patchwork players are generally the way to go.

Eddie has had all the motivation he's needed for multiple offseasons. Whether it be due to his toe, other injuries, or a lack of motivation that ship sure seems to have sailed.

I've heard Aaron Colvin's name pop up periodically as a potential CB option from the Jags.

we dont need lacy back ... we got a ton of RB options this season for a change.
not counting ty - he's a WR and please keep him that way.

I agree about keeping away from Lacy.
I really thought he was going to be a great player for us. But all the talent in the world can’t make up for a lack of motivation and a lack of desire to be a great player.
He has wasted what he had.

Chiefs safety Ron parker released. Thoughts?

If our backs are as injured as they were last year, yes, Lacy should be on speed-dial, but he shouldn't be considered for an off-season acquisition. I'm saying this as one of his biggest apologists.

My favorite receivers in Free Agency are Jordan Matthews and Allen Robinson. I don't think Sammy Watkins has proved anything and unlike the other two guys I mentioned, he never did anything to make his receivers look good.

Another WR who I do think is worth a look is Brice Butler. He's been Dallas' best receiver for the last two seasons now.

BG, GB's new GM, is I believe quite aware that his Packers need players at more than one position. That said I would believe that he also is not going to give away his game plan. If he can get a FA for a reasonable cost, he may do so. Also, the draft is approaching and he may have certain players targeted.

Patience is one of the hardest of life's lessons and we will need to be patient and see what the Packer's new GM does. Smile

Packers are showing interest in Rashaan Melvin. So is Oakland. 6'2", physical corner.

I'd like read more about this player and any others that GB may have an interest in.

I know we need to focus on defense, but if the price was right, I wouldn't mind grabbing Eric Ebron.

Guarding Adams, Cobb, Graham, Ebron and Monty all on the field at the same time might be tough.
Three straight seasons with at least 45 catches for 530 yards.

Interesting, but another TE that can't block.

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 (3h) : 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 (3h) : 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 (4h) : 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 (4h) : can't say there would be much difference, aside from tonyan being way faster
nerdmann (6h) : You gonna go with Tonyan?
gbguy20 (6h) : the dude needs to go after this year
nerdmann (6h) : Bring him back until you develop a guy. That takes a year or two.
nerdmann (6h) : I look at Graham as Chmura, without the blocking.
nerdmann (6h) : Dude was on pace for the all time production record for TEs, broke his damn thumb.
nerdmann (6h) : 46 receptions isn't bad.
packerfanoutwest (6h) : many free agents don't want to play in GB,,,and you know why. Graham played for the money
Nonstopdrivel (9h) : Graham has 46 receptions on 77 targets.
Zero2Cool (9h) : Graham should sit until his broken thumb is better.
gbguy20 (11h) : careful rabidgopher, half the forum will attack you if you say that here.
rabidgopher04 (11h) : Jimmy Graham rarely catches the ball when it comes his way.
Zero2Cool (12h) : Graham: 'My numbers suck' in Green Bay
Zero2Cool (15h) : @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
