Just finished reading the article. Good read. I hope Brandt continues to write these type of things. It's nice to have a 'insider' give his take that is not afraid to put his name to his words. Like, an 'unnamed source'.

I think we all knew that Ted wanted him back. We just didn't want to break the bank for the guy.

That surprised me too. It would've been way too much. I'm glad the Texans outbid them.

That was only if he was healthy enough to be on the active 45. Otherwise it would have been $5 million. Which I think a chunk of that would have been a considerate portion of a thank you for what you've done for us type money.

To me, this sounds like Brandt thinks the Pack overpaid. Is this sour milk, or just a result of the Favre fiasco? What do ya's think?


edit: yeah, I know I f'd up the CODE, but I'm hammered. Cut me some slack.
