Starks needs to stay low, run behind his pads more. Maybe that will keep him healthy.

Green will have a year separating himself from the knee surgery, so maybe he'll get some burst back. I think he was learning how to get what he could from Benson last year. I thought he was hitting the hole better, not always hesitating, trying to go for the home run. Still he's an ideal third down type of guy. Not necessarily "the man."

DuJuan needs to keep doing what he's doing. Don't let up, don't lose the fire.

Brandon Saine is the wild card. I really like this dude's skill set. Mike had high praise for him two years ago. Hope he comes back strong.

As for Kuhn, stick a fork in him.

When Saine went down last year I pretty much thought that would be it for him.

UDFA's only get so many chances.

Then I head Mike say on his tv show that he really didn't get to Talk with Brandon much, the reason, because Saine did everything right and he did not have to worry about him.

Still hoping he comes back healthy and ready!!!!

Mike said he was the most reliable of the RBs in 2011, which was his rookie year, and he was picking up blitzers on 3rd down.

nerdman, I actually agree with you on all counts over here. You should stick to football hahahaha. In addition to what you say, I'd like to see Ryan Grant kept as a backup RB and occasional FB - with Kuhn gone.

I don't see any harm in bringing Grant back for another shot at the roster.

I've been critical of Grant, and he does have his limitations, but I think he's worth a TC spot if he's still got something in the tank. Especially with the injuries we annually suffer at the position.

buckeye, if that was your call, you were dead nuts on. Kudos man!

I was not seeing the light at the time and have since taken another look at the big picture. I've realized Ted's task to keep Rodgers and Matthews is a bit daunting, especially when you consider he will want to do that in such a way that doesn't kick our asses in the future. If in fact that is his plan. It sure looks like it, and I cannot fault him for not being a player in FA this year. Maybe he is looking more 2014-2017 for a NEW window, allowing our previous window to close a bit.

Zero mentioned our shot was 2011 and 2012 and I agree. It didn't happen, so this seems a prudent way to move forward. Run what you have in 2013 while cutting as many high priced contracts as possible, and let the 2013 chips fall where they may.

You were right. I was wrong. I just wanted us to win so badly, 2011, 2012, and now. But, looking at the bigger picture, now may just have to be what it is so that we can have a future window, with more realistic chances to win it all.

Nobody's "right or wrong" here, I just thought it would be fun to put the whole roster down before FA started and see just how close it was at the start of the season.

I am looking at The Ravens right now, they won the SB, signed their QB to a huge contract, but obviously they were not prepared looking at the # of starters that they had to let go.

Ted seems to always be thinking 3 years ahead, Raji,Mathews,Rodgers contracts are all coming up, along with many more players, bringing in players who might or might not make The Packers better just seems to be to much of a risk.

Just read where Ted signed Francois, and let Crabtree go, gotta go update my roster again!!!! lol

A player I'd like to see the Packers pick up in the 2nd or 3rd round is the Strong Safety out of FIU, Jonathan Cyprien. Haven't really heard much talk about the guy, but he can flat out play. He has good speed, is both a solid tackler and big hitter, and knows how to make plays at the line of scrimmage. Pairing him with Burnett would give the Packers a solid Safety tandem for years to come.

Packers | High on current safeties
Wed, 20 Mar 2013 20:39:43 -0700

One source close to the team said the Green Bay Packers are high on safeties M.D. Jennings, Jerron McMillian and Sean Richardson next to FS Morgan Burnett. The team did not pursue high-priced safeties in the free-agent market, surprising some agents. However, the team feels they might have the answer internally.

Guess I can put Jermichal Finley on the 53man roster.
Packers paid him his money today.
With Donald Driver and Greg Jennings both gone, JM will probably be asked to do more, I just hope he doesn't turn into one of those chatty diva types.

"According to Matteo Gandini of Sportitalia, former University of California kicker Giorgio Tavecchio has signed with the Packers. The move was also confirmed by John Breech of CBSSports.com."

A little competition in TC doesn't hurt, but in the end Mason Crosby will probably be The packers K.
I'm adding Tavecchio to the roster for now.

This is not a huge concern, IMO.. Zombo and Walden were both inconsistent players in their time here.. I would rather plug in a couple rookies or street free agents later in the game than continue to hope either become the answer.

We have decent numbers yet at the edges..

Matthews
Perry
Moses
Johnson

Couple that with a draft pick, a couple UDFA's and maybe a veteran later.. we will be fine. Baring a run on injuries again that is.


Personally, I think Moses really jumps in development and becomes a strong #3 at the edges.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I'm almost leaning toward Ted Thompson trading down in the draft and gaining an extra lower round pick as long as we get in the top 40.
I would assume doing so would add an additional low 3rd round pick. I am guessing trading #26 for say #37 would require that team giving up their 3rd round pick.

I say this because on about any mock I see there are plenty of good players that would be there at #33 to #39 and adding a low 3rd round pick would give Ted 4 players between rounds 2 and 3.
I would love to see an OL, DL, Safety, and RB used for these picks and can see several pretty darn good players that would be around.

It seems like we can't keep our 1st round guys on the field (Perry, Sherrod, Bulaga) so maybe Ted Thompson should just bypass that round. It also makes sense in that this would be capitalizing on a deep draft.

Don't know who the trade partner for Ted would be but with all these veteran QB signings maybe one would jump in for one at #26 that wouldn't go earlier with an experienced QB on the team.

You might get your wish Warhawk if one of those quarterback desperate teams wants to trade up. None of the 2013 quarterbacks are worthy of a top twenty pick, but there may be a run on them in the late twenties.

I put this guy in FA signing, fighting for roster spot category. Depending on what Ted does in draft, there just may be room for him on the 53 man roster.

The Green Bay Packers signed free-agent TE Matthew Mulligan (Rams) to a one-year contract Sunday, April 7, his agent confirmed.

Evan Dietrich Smith sign his free agent tender, will go into camp as starting C.

Most have predicted that Ted will look for a C in the draft, only if he drafts one within the 1st 2 rounds do I see any camp competition for EDS.

He probably should have started from day 1 last year, but that is ancient history, hopefully Mike & co. plug 5 guys in early, keep them together, and hope for no major injuries.

We can get by with EDS, but he's nothing special. He's a great backup for the interior line.

I think Van Roten would be backing him up, no? This is a position at which we could use an upgrade.
