I can almost guarantee that you'll see some extensions get taken care of before the end of this season, so that the 2008 cap can be utilized in the contracts.

Lots of young guys and plenty of room in the Cap... not a problem in my eyes... Plenty of money to sign the guys we want and need to keep hold of and bring in anyone who may stand out.

Again, another favourible position to be in for the team, and its up to the players this year to prove they are worth the big $$$!

I'm pretty sure KGB won't be here so that'll free up a few million too.

I got the feeling that Ted Thompson had already talked to Greg too, but the comment about playing for the other teams has me concerned. Mainly cuz I just bought a Jennings jersey...hope he stays put.

I don't like those quotes from Greg Jennings. That got me a little worried. You never want a guy saying that he is auditoning for 32 teams, not just the Packers.

Give Greg the biggest deal possible. Then clone him into 25 productive units.

Of the players mentioned in the article whose contracts will expire within the next two years, the only two that I would count as must-haves are Aaron Rodgers and Greg Jennings. We'll see about Clifton and Tauscher. I hope they remain healthy and productive, but at their age, Thompson may not want to break the bank for them. Pickett, Jolly, and Blackmon would be nice to keep if they stay healthy.

Players mentioned in the article who I regard as fairly easy to replace are Colledge, Moll, Spitz, Collins, and obviously Chillar. And KGB may be at the end of the line by then.

So if you look at it this way, the "numbers crunch" may not be too bad.

well as much as i would love for Greg Jennings to say... I love the Packers and I will never leave as long as they will have me. it is after all, a business and i think the "other 31 teams" quote was something the staff was preaching in camp if i remember correctly. Its just a fact, everytime you step on the field you are either increasing your pay day or ruining it. So come 2009 when the Packers want to sign you but dont have the funds, you can get signed by another team. The NFL is a business at its core, and money will always come first.


this will be interesting because there is a lot of dudes fighting for a set amount of money. but thats the beauty of the draft young and resign your guys philosophy. This is where Ted Thompson and his staff make their money. With smart drafting and sensible contract negotiations, this team will be good for years to come.

I don't think Spitz is in any way easy to replace. I believe in Harvey... Jason Spitz.
