I don't see it happening. Hakeem Nicks wants a huge contract and I don't see the Packers parting with a pick to rent a player for half the season. And Kenny Britt is just not the player some think he is.

I don't see any "big" moves happening, either. The only way I could even really see Ted Thompson considering something would be if both James Jones and Randall Cobb were out for the season. If appears as if Jones will be back sooner rather than later, and possibly even Cobb (although I still wouldn't be surprised if he tore his ACL). Even without Cobb, that will give the Packers Aaron Rodgers, Jordy Nelson, James Jones, Finley, Lacy, Franklin, Boykin, and a few other role players. All things considering, that's still not too bad. It's not an elite core, but many QBs have played with worse. The biggest factor then becomes continuing to establish the running game, as they have been doing. While a really good running game might not be able to make up for the loss of Cobb completely, it can come close. A good running game plus the remaining weapons will still make it hard for most other teams to beat the Packers, especially with the defense playing well.

Nicks would certainly look good in Green and Gold, and the Packers could very well resign him instead of him going elsewhere for the long term, but I think he's a little over rated, anyway. Ted Thompson could probably do better, and for much cheaper, through the draft.

Kenny Britt would have to be a short term rental.. as the guy as a list of legal issues that seem to attach themselves to him.

9 Times Britt has been in trouble with Johnny Law since joining the league.. 9 times since 2009. And people are rubbed wrong by Finley's immaturity.. this guy would give them nightmares.

Nicks would be a short term rental because of his salary..


But Uncle Teddy seems to be wise in keeping a chunk of that salary cap open so that as the attrition wears on.. we have opportunities like these.. just don't know that either is the right fit for us. Long term anyway.

Give me Josh Gordon or Greg Little from the Browns and I'll be happy.

Not gonna happen, especially since we are playing them this week, but Rodgers throwing to Gordon would be amazing.

I like Little too, but I don't see that happening. He would be a great #4 and a good #3. Not that fast, but pretty big and can catch. Tough, too.

Nicks and Britt can stay out of the Packers locker room. Britt is a liability, and Nicks is too expensive for what you are getting. For that matter, Nicks has done little to nothing lately, so why would you expect him to produce in green and gold?

No thanks!
