I think its fair to assume that the contract is a "safe" contract and honestly, I'd prefer to overpay him a little....
1. because we have plenty of cap space to do so.
2. I'd rather not go through what we endured last season.

Flynn brings the security needed at the back-up position and he has proven that he can fill the role of backing up Rodgers when needed. I am just happy we won't ever have to experience Seneca Wallace again.

The move also frees up a pick. I'm thinking we are good with the 3 QBs they have, and if they need a camp arm they can sign a UDFA. I really like this. One year contract.

re signing your own FA doesn't factor into compensatory picks. The point of the system is to somewhat compensate for losing good players from your team.


Ah OK. I thought that any signing of unrestricted free agents counted the same, whether they used to be a part of the Packers on a previous contract, or not.

He's a better version of Doug Pederson under Favre. A career backup to a future hall of fame quarterback is a pretty good gig for a noodle armed quarterback. At least the Seahawks and Raiders were the ones that made him financially secure for life and not us.

I think the best thing about bringing back Flynn, is he will be a good resource for Tolzien to better learn the offense. Less questions that McCarthy and Rodgers will need to field.

Anything over a million is overpaying though.

I think they look at it kind of like a loss vs gain over last season and since we had Flynn last season its neither a loss or a gain. They only take into consideration players whose contracts had run out with their previous team so signing Peppers will not have any ramifications on comp picks either since he was cut by the Bears and had not played out his contract.

I don't know how much it plays into Teds decisions but it has to be a factor.

That's actually a good comparison. I missed Doug when he left. I think he's offensive coordinator for Chiefs?

Zero2Cool: thank ya sir
uffda udfa: Best looking site out there!
Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
