I am so glad the Pack didn't draft Vernon Davis.

    He just signed a contract making him the highest paid tight end in football. Way stupid. Unproven rookie getting paid more than Tony Gonzalez Ben Gates Jeremy Shockey and many other very good, nfl proven tight ends.

    haha yes, I was thinking of former Iowa lineman Ben Gates who is from my hometown. I always get those names mixed up.

    Wow........

    I can't believe the NFL didn't adress the silly rookie salaries in the CBA, I think the need a system like the NBA.

    People are signing all around AJ Hawk on the draft board now...it should just be a matter of time before he signs on with the Pack. I'd love to see him practice on the first day. I think it would show his teammates a lot about his desire to be there and compete but as they say, it's a business.

    How much was Vernon Davis' contract? Funny how Reggie Bush is asking for more then both Mario Williams ($54 million) and Vince Young ($58 million).

    There was speculation that the Saints told Bush that they would pay him #1 money if he fell to #2...if that's true, it's time for NO to open the wallet and get the next big thing at the RB position.

    I look forward to Vernon Davis discovering our LB corp and secondary when he next visits town. My gut feeling is that the players will remember his comments and deliver payment in full.

    Nah, that's why I said the "next" big thing...Sanders hung up the cleats a while ago, man. Where have you been? :lol:

    Maybe they cloned a mixture of Gale Sayers, Barry Sanders, and Marshall Faulk and made Reggie Bush though?!?

    It would need a heaping scoop of "Sweetness" to truly be considered the next big thing. :wink:

    Don't even breathe the word Barry in the same wording as that rookie. You should be ashamed!

    I said, cloned. A cloned Barry Sanders WOULD be the next big thing at the RB position.

    I know Barry retired. I've been having Barry withdrawals for years now; thank you reminding me further.
