This time of the year all teams are maneuvering to get better. GB is no exception.

Waving this player, trading, bidding for players, and so on. It is for this reason that a thread that reports what the Packers have/or are actually doing is here. Not a thread for posting wishes, but just the facts and our opinions about the current team moves that have taken place. Like:

Waving ILB Antonio Morrison
Tendering for exclusive-rights free agent TE Tonyan
Resigning DL Fadol Brown to a 1 year contract

This thread is here to report/record the current factual player events that can be said to be done deals and your thoughts about them.

In my opinion, I'm not unhappy with the player personal moves up to today. What say you?

Cheers!

Considering I don't think they can much other than resign and release their own, I'm not happy nor non-happy with what has happened so far.


IMO Morrison was barely worth what he was getting, when he hit that pay raise for playing time in his first three years, I said he wasn't going to be kept for that amount.

I believe tendering Tonyan was smart, he might have potential to be a #3 TE and maybe more in a scheme that helps him.

Also I believe we tendered OG McCray, which I think McCray looked good two years ago when lost Rodgers and we're running the ball a lot, he struggled some in pass protection, but that was with him at RT.... I thought keeping him at OG would stop that, then they passed the ball 70% of the time and teams targeted the OGs because they knew it was going to be a pass and they were the weak links. If they run the ball 45+% of the time, I think McCray might be able to start, or at least be a pretty good backup.


And I'm not sure if this counts as factual as it was just a rumor, but it seems to be a correct rumors in the Packers keeping Graham, I think was smart (assuming he can stay healthy), he was the only weapon that distracted teams from targeting Adams all the time in the passing game, at least until he got injured... and I think he was used poorly, if used better and stays healthy, I think he might be able to be a good weapon again.

The news on Jimmy Graham is still speculative as far as I have heard. His will be an interesting case to follow though.

The coming weeks will see many players that will be involved in the NFL drama that is the offseason. This thread will be a great place to report the hard news facts as they go down.

The Packers have tendered the following players.

OLB Reggie Gilbert
WR Jake Kumerow
OGs Justin McCray and Lucas Patrick

That is all the remaining exclusive-rights Packer free agents.

Nothing extraordinary, but IMO solid football players.

Cheers!

Thought they released McRay during the season.

I say keep Jimmy. He's another slot guy. He's not gonna win with quickness or change of direction, he's gonna win with HEIGHT. Dude is our rebounder over the middle.

He didn't really give any evidence of that last year. At all. In fact, some of his more memorable drops came precisely when Aaron Rodgers was trying to take advantage of Graham's height in coverage.

With the big splash Gutekunst has made on the defensive side of the ball, I think it's reasonable to assume he will turn his attention to the offense relatively early in this draft. Jimmy Graham is due a $5 million roster bonus on the third day of the league year (i.e., March 15). It will be interesting to see if Gutekunst is in the mood to shell out this sizable chunk of change, or if he'll decide that with the probable development of his corps of tall second-year receivers, he can find a serviceable replacement for Graham's production in the draft. There are some pretty high-profile tight ends that should be available late in the first round or early in the middle of the second.

I still don't understand the rationale for keeping him. "Catch radius"....really?!?!?

He cant block, can't get open, and costs too much.

I've been thinking this same thing all day

I can't say all the moves will work out. A+ for effort anyway. The one thing all the signings will do is not lock the Packers into selecting a player because of need. They can truly take BPA.

Yes that is what I've been thinking. It looks like they've addressed their biggest needs and should be able to work the draft a little easier without feeling the need to reach or rely on rookies to start right away.

The recent moves have placed 4 new players on the GB roster. They are:

Za'Dariius Smith (OLB/Edge Rusher) (from Ravens)
Adrian Amos (Safety) (from Chicago)
Preston Smith (LB/Edge Rusher) (from Washington)
Billy Turner (OL) (from Denver)

OLB Nick Perry was cut from the Packers roster

All interesting moves that could put GB in a better position to select talented players in the upcoming NFL Draft .

Given that we have not heard anything about Jimmy Graham being released, I think it's safe to assume that Green Bay will be cutting him a hefty $5 million check tomorrow. I wish I were optimistic that he'll come through in key situations this year.

I'd love to cut him

He could still end up being a cap casualty in the final roster cuts, but it strikes me as an absurd waste of money to give him $5 million in March and then release him in August. Stranger things have happened, though.

Jimmy Graham could get cut, but at this time that is speculation. If it becomes a fact, this thread should record it. I'd like to see him traded and have the Packers get some value from the TE disappointment.

I would also like to see Matthews moved to ILB as the two new Packer Smith pass rushers put the pressure on from the edges. Otherwise, release Matthews and free up some money.

Mercedcedes Lewis (TE) has been re-signed to a one year deal.

Geronimo Allison (WR) has been tendered.

If they didn’t redo his deal it would be a shame. He is not worth the money.

Matthews isn't on our roster at this time. He's a free agent. So that money's freed up, already.

I'd also like to see Jimmy traded, but I don't think there'll be any takers for a 32 year old TE who has been playing pretty average, on a $ 10 million a year deal.

Cutting him would give us a little more cap space, but not enough to eat the dead cap and sign a player of the same caliber. And we certainly don't have a starting TE on the roster behind him. So there's no point, really.

The new offensive system utilizes blocking TEs more than before. i understand that Marcedes Lewis is a decent blocking TE. Graham, if kept, might just platoon in/out with Lewis. Two TE sets also should be a part of the new sys.

As for Clay Matthews, I doubt he finds a home with another team and might sign a 1yr for the league minimum. His time as an edge rusher is over, but he may still have a season or two left as an ILB. Matthews/Martinez on the inside and the Smiths rushing the edges sounds good to me.

I've always liked Geronimo Allison and I believe that he will have his best year yet.
