In last year's draft, Ted Thompson bucked his draft history as the Green Bay Packers' general manager and traded away extra picks to move up three times.

With $21 million in salary cap room this year, could Thompson again drastically break form, this time in free agency, and try to get his team over the top with aggressive pursuit of players on the open market this offseason?

The smart money says no, in part because of Thompson’s disdain for free agency, but also because of the deceiving nature of the Packers’ cap space.

fewer, better quality players is what they need at this time.

"Value" doesn't mean "never spend."

Value means "get plenty for what you pay." Ted's not a cheapskate. He's a steely eyed assassin.

I wish we had "you're a dumbass" smiley! This time of year blows donkeys. The best thread we have going is what Buckeye thinks our roster is going to look like. Talk about watching the paint dry.

Writes the venerable Sid Hartman, “[T]he latest word from some good sources around the NFL is that Harvin, who missed the final seven regular-season games as well as the playoff game because of a serious ankle injury, has told the Vikings that he doesn’t want to play for them and wants to be traded.”


Offer them Jennings and Hawk.

Can you imagine Harvin and Cobb? That would be awesome.

I guess the Queens are pretty set at MLB though.

Now they just need to figure out some way to trade a free agent that they hold no rights to.
