I think it's either him or a draft pick.

(or both)

I just dont see us being able to continue with our current crop of backs.

Let's hope not.

He's still going on that 2010 season with the Browns. From there on out he's been little more than a locker room cancer, without any real production.

I don't think Benson will produce big time for us, but still, I'd rather have him than Hillis.

It would be a gigantic reach to think he could do anything for the Packers backfield. I consider him to be a Kuhn 2.0

Steven Jackson was the main free agent exception at this position, imo.

The Packers should focus on a runningback in the draft and could land a decent starter, even in round 3.

I rather take a look at Ahmad Bradshaw.

Agree with draft pick and players on current roster.

Packers have got to catch a break one of these years and have their rb's stay healthy!!!

Missing Jackson hurts, but overpaying for a guy who might not produce would hurt worse. The business end of the NFL sucks.

I'd look at Hillis, but only if he's willing to move to FB.

Who is Peyton Hillis?

huh, i was under the impression we already hosted Hillis,

Schefter (through kevin seifert) apparently said he is still schedualed for a visit

I can't see Hillis doing much better behind our OL than our current group--I just don't see him as much of an improvement, if any.

Zero2Cool (20-Mar) : 1 year with Aaron Rodgers and having monster stats = GET PAID STRAIGHT CASH HOMIE
DarkaneRules (20-Mar) : I doubt he'll take a deal like that. He wants to get paid like the other WRs have.
Zero2Cool (20-Mar) : I would pay 2.99 million base, then incentives! INCENTIVES!!!
DarkaneRules (20-Mar) : hah, funny how that happens in this sport. See what the market says. I wouldn't pay over 3mil.

TheKanataThrilla (18-Mar) : Would we consider trying Rollins a S?
gbguy20 (18-Mar) : so what's the deal then, are we to expect to see josh Jones in Morgan Burnetts spot this season? i guess I can't say I'm opposed to the idea.
Smokey (17-Mar) : BG is in no hurry to anounce a new Rodgers deal. Smart !
gbguy20 (17-Mar) : When is Rodgers signing that extension that was supposedly only awaiting Kirk? Typing on a phone makes things tough.
Nonstopdrivel (17-Mar) : That's what I was thinking: I wasn't aware that he was quitting.
Zero2Cool (17-Mar) : Hopefully not for a long time. We need him.
gbguy20 (17-Mar) : when is 12 resigning
Nonstopdrivel (17-Mar) : I have to say I like it, even if it means I have to put up with occasional ads for Maseratis. 😂
Nonstopdrivel (17-Mar) : Interestingly, since I blocked third-party cookies, ads I see tend to relate to the content of the page instead of my most recent Amazon searches.
TheKanataThrilla (17-Mar) : Mathieu to Texans? I thought he wanted to go to a play that was all about winning football games?
hardrocker950 (17-Mar) : Bears already matched
Zero2Cool (16-Mar) : Bears will certainly match it though. Maybe restructure after year one?
