We're about to enter what, for Packer fans, is usually a pretty action-less time of year -- early free agency when Ted-the-consistent-seeker-of-value-without-overpaying-and-preferring-to-do-it-by-drafting-anyway Thompson rarely is heard from.

I thought it might be interesting to ask everyone who, if they were GM, they would be willing to overpay for come free agency this year....both players and positions.

My list (so far):

Offense: Greg Jennings.
Offense: Ryan Clady (depending on injury prognosis).
Defense: Henry Melton.
Defense: Cliff Avril.
OL help in general.
NT help in general.

Overpay ... probably no one, unless it's a one year deal and I've got some cap room just sitting there.

Overpay? Noone, plain and simple. Overpay implicates that you pay someone more money than he's worth which is always a bad thing. [grin1] Even if I take it as you meant it, I wouldn't spend big bucks on any of those guys available.

This time of year, absolutely no one. This time of year teams overpay on long term team destroying deals.

I could see overpaying in Aug- November, if a catastrophic injury occured and someone was available on a short, expensive contract. Something like Benson last August.

If the Packers had cap space and were only one player away from being as close to a sure thing Super Bowl contender, I'd be inclined to overpaying for said player. I think the Packers are a few players away from being Super Bowl contenders. I think as long as the OL and DL are the primary weaknesses on the team, they will falter year in year out.

Mario Williams...Albert Haynesworth...Nnamdi Asamgouah?

On second thought, I'd rather not overpay for anyone.

I'd rather pick up free agents like Sam Shields, Dez Bishop, DuJuan Harris, Jeremy Ross, Don Barclay and Dez Moses.

I wouldn't overpay, but I would be curious as to what the pricetag is for Jake Long.

Since no one else wants to, please allow me to do some shopping.

Cedric Peerman – Running Back – Cincinnati Bengals 5’ 8” – 211
Core special teams player, natural zone runner , who runs with power
4.34 speed - Kirwan Explosion Index 76.75 6.99 cone 1.40 Ten yard split
Overpaying for a guy making $540K? Peanuts.

Kenny Phillips – Free Safety – New York Giants 6’ 2” – 217
4.48 speed Can play single high and has good man skills
You’re not likely to get into a bidding war for Phillips. He made 2.08 million
Give him the $2.3 million that we paid Collins for 2012 (since he is now off the books)

Rocky Bernard – DT - New York Giants 6’ 4” – 300
His 2002 combine numbers 4.96 speed - Kirwan Explosion Index 72.0
Think of Bernard as a Cullen Jenkins type who can stay healthy, he’s only missed 10 games in seven years.
He’s 33, but has some tread left on the tires – especially as a five-tech.
He can be had by overpaying to the tune of $1 million per.

Gregorious- no. GB has plenty at WR they don't need to overpay.
Clady- no. GB has enough injured OT already way overpay?
Melton. hmmm. possible. Depends on the definition of overpay? A competitive price and maybe a dollar or two more? Sure. $1 mil over the going rate plus tons of front loaded money? no.
Arvil? no. to light for a 3-4 or 2-5. He is best in a tradition 4-3 base.
OL in general? no. I am comfortable for one more year with who they have. Looking for a draft and develop C. The G are adequate to above average so no need to overpay. OT. Probably already have some good ones if GB can move beyond injuries and potential and see what they really have. In 2 years I may be so inclined if there is no progress made.

Zero2Cool (9h) : Jordy has "legitimate hope" to play, per @RobDemovsky.

Zero2Cool (9h) : Dallas OL had some holds weren't called and 2 defensive holds, not called.
uffda udfa (9h) : I think the Pi vs just a holding call is a legit complaint. Terrible call.
GoPack1984 (9h) : Dallas can't complain about the officials. They got away with so many defensive holding calls.
uffda udfa (9h) : Dallas radio postgame: Dallas wins 7 out of 10 times.
uffda udfa (9h) : Brice led Pack w/ 6 tackles including the hardest of the game.

DarkaneRules (11h) : we beat an arguably better team at their place without morgan burnett. still can't believe it

uffda udfa (11h) : Dallas play by play guy said we aren't best team.
uffda udfa (11h) : NBC is off the air down here. This is an OTA broadcast signal.
uffda udfa (11h) : Tornado warnings in Dallas area. Sign of aPACKalypse to Cowboys fans.
uffda udfa (11h) : I agree with a Homer. That's true. It was actually 35 per Erin Andrews post game int.
Zero2Cool (11h) : @espnhomer 4th and 26 is dead replaced by 36 on 3rd and 20.
