Apparently, Chiefs shopping Branden Albert for two picks. Packers already used two firsts on attempts at an LT. What do you know about this Albert?

Good player. Has good grades at PFF if I recall correctly. Was originally gonna be a guard or right tackle but has played really well at LT. I'd trade a 2nd and 3rd for him in a heartbeat.

He's a good player, but the Packers won't have the money necessary to sign him long term.

or maybe give them Packers 1st round, for their 2nd round plus a 3rd next year.

I'd give no more than a 2nd for this guy. Hasn't he been hurt?

He's a decent LT, but not great, and is fairly expensive (and 29). I don't know what kind of long-term deal could be worked out with him, but I don't see this happening at all.

GB already has too much invested in OT. Without us knowing the health of Sherrod and Bulaga I would hold off.

All the reason to get a proven LT. Not talking

My point is that the Packers FO may know whether the guys are able to play or not.

Let's say they are able to perform at full capabilities. Then it is a waste of a draft pick.

If they can't play then it does make sense to acquire someone else.

If they have no idea whatsoever then it could go either way. My guess is they would wait and see.

Exactly. If they make a move on a guy like this, we know what that means as far as Sherrod's progress.

Even if Ted Thompson wanted to make a move, I seriously doubt the Packers would be able to afford. Until the contract situations of Rodgers, Matthews, and Raji get resolved, there won't be any "big name" moves happening. Only way something like this happens is if Finley or Tramon get cut/traded.

I also very much doubt this happens. If he's 29 and has a contract expiring in a year or two, he isn't worth too much. As for affording him, the whole salary cap situation is greatly overrated as a problem. There are a lot of ways of structuring things to get a big contract figure with a not as big cap hit.

I'm hoping Ted Thompson doesn't trade because he feels the answers are already on the team. If the opposite is true he definitely needs to address the problem ASAP so Aaron doesn't get killed. I think the real key is how confident they are that Sherrod and Bulaga will come back 100% from their injuries, Datko could be a dark horse, it will be interesting to see if he can get healthy and make a big jump. The possibilities are there, hopefully they make the correct decisions as to the answers being there.

If it all works out, we've got serious depth on the line, except at C. Maybe Van Roten can be a player there.

As the FA prices continues to drop, is it an idea to poke around Andre Smith to see if he will sign a team friend deal perfomance based? He is a risk but if you could get him to bite on a contract that is pay as you go with alot of incentives, it might not be a bad idea?
