They list off reasons why he had to do something. I'm pretty cautiously excited. I don't like it when media is saying my team is winning free agency. You don't win the Super Bowl in March, but you can sure lose it.

ESPN said:
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When word began to circulate a few weeks ago at the NFL combine that the Green Bay Packers would be big players in free agency, it was met with plenty of "yeah, right" responses.

And when the first day of the negotiating period passed with no action, the "yeah, right" crowd could have argued that these were the same old Packers who never did much in the opening rush of free agency under former general manager Ted Thompson.

Then came Tuesday morning.

Before lunchtime, second-year GM Brian Gutekunst landed four free agents who had agreed to contract terms: pass-rushers Za’Darius Smith (formerly of the Ravens) and Preston Smith (Redskins) plus safety Adrian Amos (Bears) and offensive lineman Billy Turner (Broncos).

So why did Gutekunst go all-in the day before the league year opened?

"He had to do something," a league source said Tuesday.

Gutey was here last year, but really wasn't in total control. He had Murphy and McCarthy to deal with.

This is really his 1st year to have total control and he is making the most of it.

He is building his team.

We should find out in the next week or so if he is going to bring back any more of The Packers FA's.

Would like to see him bring Breeland back, and if Clay would take a team friendly deal wouldn't mind seeing him back as an MLB and situational rusher. I have a feeling Clay will definitely get picked up by someone else. Breeland is really the last piece in free agency I want this year, with the exception of a mid-level veteran wideout if any become available.

I too am excited over the FA player acquisitions. However much remains to remake the Packers and lift them to a SB victory. I do feel that GB's GM is moving the player personal roster in a good direction. Some may say he is spending too much money, but a lot can still happen between now and opening day of the 2019 reg. season.

IMO, GB might be looking now at spending their #1 picks on possibly a WR or a TE if the available players in the draft fit the new GB system. Let us step lightly as we wait to see what moves will come next. BigGrin

I would of liked it if we would of grabbed Cook from the raiders ... We seem to have a lot of WR in the works but we always like to draft them.

I hoping for a good DL guy and of course some OL guys in the draft. Guess I wont be looking at OLBers ...

With the addition of Billy Turner (OL from the Broncos) the Packers have picked up a good OG/T.
The D-line has not been the issue, but pass rushing has. That and a new Safety addresses the most needful areas of last seasons improved Packer Defense. Resigning Wilkerson should help to provide a solid set of Starters.

Having addressed the Defensive need and the O-line need. IMO, improving Rodgers offensive options seems to be the next natural thing to focus on.

I think Cook is still a FA.
Unless I missed the signing.
I guess I should have said it will be interesting to see what, if any, 2nd tier FA's Gutey signs.

I see this years draft as a BPA after todays signings.

Zero2Cool (2h) : Keep in mind the quick little fast guys that the Rams, Falcons used. They might see Trevor in that role.
Zero2Cool (2h) : More than likely, this is a last ditch effort to find a spot for Trevor.
Cheesey (11h) : I agree gbguy. He must have a relative in a high position on the Packers!
gbguy20 (17h) : except ty was actually good (at both positions) where Trevor has never shown a reason to be on the 53. how he has been here for so long escapes me
wpr (18h) : It's the Montgomery experiment all over again.
gbguy20 (20h) : Trevor Davis practicing as a RB during OTAs. what the hell

TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : There was a stat that indicated that home crowd was most important in basketball of the big 4 sports. Not sure why.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Raptors are simply better team top/down, and two of their main guys are hobbled.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : And didn't learn from past mistakes and lost Game 4.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : Bucks should have lost Game 1, got lucky. Dominated Game 2. Screwed up in Game 3.
Zero2Cool (22-May) : I don't think they are gonna make it to the Finals. No effort, no heart last night.
buckeyepackfan (22-May) : Don't panic Cheesey, series will go 7 games. NBA needs that to happen.
Cheesey (22-May) : Bucks stunk it up tonight. If they keep this up, they will be WATCHING the championship on TV.
TheKanataThrilla (22-May) : Congrats Blues. Stanley Cup bound.
gbguy20 (22-May) : i c u cheesey
Cheesey (21-May) : Yeah....would have been good “JU JU”! LOL!
Zero2Cool (21-May) : Should have taken JuJu Smith-Schuster instead of Josh Jones
Zero2Cool (21-May) : " So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the reps. I think everyone in here is comfortable what Davante is about."
Zero2Cool (21-May) : LaFleur says Davante Adams is present, but he did not practice: "Just precautionary, and ... we do have some young receivers. So I think it's a good opportunity for those guys to get the bulk of the r
Nonstopdrivel (21-May) : They won another Eastern Conference Championship in '74.
Nonstopdrivel (21-May) : They won it all in 1971.
gbguy20 (21-May) : im assuming not
gbguy20 (21-May) : have the bucks ever won it all?
Cheesey (21-May) : Yup.hes best taking it to the hoop.
gbguy20 (20-May) : the nba 10 years ago vs now
Zero2Cool (20-May) : and I do NOT want Giannis taking 3's unless we are up by double digits. Period.
Zero2Cool (20-May) : and it was bumbled up and a turnover. TAKE THE DAMN SHOT
Zero2Cool (20-May) : So many times it looked like clear lane to the hoop and instead of the layup, they did an awkward pass
Zero2Cool (20-May) : That was another thing that boggled my mind.
Cheesey (20-May) : True. So many missed shots. These guys are pros, yet can’t seem to make a free throw???
Zero2Cool (20-May) : 12 points wasn't the issue, it was his 8 turnovers. And the stupid ass passing in the paint. Just take the damn lay up.
Cheesey (20-May) : Held the Greek freak to 12 points. That sure didn’t help us.
Zero2Cool (20-May) : Always feel home team gonna win game three. But once OT hit, I felt it was ours.
Cheesey (20-May) : They had plenty of chances. They just plain blew it.
Zero2Cool (20-May) : Bucks didn't win, crap!
Zero2Cool (19-May) : It'll be canceled before the month is up 😜
gbguy20 (19-May) : dangit

gbguy20 (18-May) : from*

Zero2Cool (18-May) : Sling TV is $25 a month.
nerdmann (18-May) : My SkyStreamer is running great.
Nonstopdrivel (18-May) : Even at fifty bucks, YouTube TV is reasonable. I projected the Super Bowl on a screen at least 20-feet high, and the clarity was impeccable.
gbguy20 (18-May) : 50 is nuts for that. i like your sling idea
Zero2Cool (18-May) : YouTube TV is $50 a month
Zero2Cool (18-May) : I paid for one month of SlingTV for NBA
