FYI, The Jones listed is Brad Jones not James.

James just got extened.
7/31/2011: Signed a three-year, $9.4 million contract. The deal included a $1.5 million signing bonus and first-year roster bonus of $950,000. Another $200,000 is available through incentives. 2012: $2.3 million (+ $200,000 roster bonus), 2013: $2.95 million (+ $200,000 roster bonus), 2014: Free Agent

Sitton's contract is to new for renegotiation to help much. Not going to drop his cap number much we still have his pro-rated SB, at most maybe 1 million or 2 savings. Sitton has a very cap friendly structure. Williams might save a little more, but still maybe 2-3 million. I personally don't like restructuring these contracts because it only pushes the hit down the road, except for Woodson, because it would be moving money down the road that he would never receive.


Sorry. #-o I was on the phone and didn't think it all the way through. I was reading from the bottom of the list up and defense came before offense. LB before WR. Wade should take my applause point away for doing a poor job.
thanks Post received 1 applause.

Nah. You should have some extra applause points just because you have given over 1000 of them yourself.

At this point, Raji needs to stay. Pickett is solid against the run, but it doesn't look like any of the other DT's are capable of getting much pressure on the inside. Raji is at least average at that with the potential to be good, and a team can win with an average push up the middle. If anything, his recent average performance should make him more affordable. Losing Raji and Pickett continuing to age and perhaps decline soon is a really bad idea. I understand the numbers simply may not work out, but Ted should be able to figure it out, somehow. I trust Ted's ability to find receiving talent much more than I do defensive line talent, if it were to come down to that.

I still think Raji can be a very effective DT/NT, but he really needs a dynamic player beside of him. Hopefully someone currently on the roster will eventually fill that role, be it Neal, Worthy, Daniels, Wilson, et. al. Most of those players have shown glimpses of having that ability, but seem to disappear more often than not. Hopefully they will progress.

Finding a large athletic man such as Raji is extremely difficult. I don't think it's time to move on from him yet, I just think it's time to find a good to really good talent to play beside him at DE in base and in the middle in sub-package's. The synergy of Raji + another really good big man would result in exponential results on the field, imo. In terms of pass rushing defensive linemen currently, it's mostly just Raji and 'a bunch of guys', as far as I'm concerned. I still really like Neal, and think he could be that guy, but I'm starting to doubt that. Obviously Worthy is just getting started, but beyond a few plays, I haven't been impressed, so far. I like Daniels a lot, as well, but he has yet to really shown anything. They are both players that aren't prototypical 3-4 DT's, but specialize in penetrating while rushing the passer. That's exactly what that Packer's need most currently.

I too believe Raji would be missed. He hasn't been what he was our SB year but there would be a drop,off with out him. As long as player/agents don't over value themselves the only ones I see deserving a big pay increase are Rodgers and Matthews. Woodson should actually take a big pay decrease, but I don't see that happening. I think he'll want to be paid for years past, even though that isn't the way it works. Driver will be gone. So there are some spots to get some relief.

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.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
