Williams would consider staying even if it means less money?

    I think it is important to keep the guys that really want to stick around.

    That's pretty impressive, considering the way some guys look for their payday.

    I hope TT gives him a good market-value offer. Regardless of our depth @ DT, we saw how quickly the postion can thin and the vitality of health at that spot. Plus, we have oodles of cap space that probably won't go to any premier FA's anyway.

    Pro Football Weekly also had a piece on Williams not too long ago that discussed Williams' value on the Free-Agent market.

    They concluded someone would look at his stats, and over pay him. Williams is a good player, but he isn't all that consistent.

    With reports that DT Shaun Rogers is set to be released by the Lions, I expect Williams to wait until Rogers gets some big money deal, and use that contract as a baseline on what Williams deserves.

    That means I think it is inevitable that someone will offer Williams more money than he is worth, and more than than what TT thinks a player like Williams should get. I'm not too optimistic he'll be back, but I'd love for him to return as a Packer!

    Williams should make more money than Shaun "Fat-n-Lazy" Rogers.

    Re: Williams would consider staying even if it means less mo

    I dunno, I think Rogers will make more.

    to be honest, I wouldn't mind if Rodgers signed with the Packers. We've got the rotation to keep him fresh, and more importantly we'd have a DT combo great than the Vikings.

    It'll be pretty effin tough to run through those two big bodies.

    But yeah, I'll stop dreaming now (about Rogers, not Jennings).

    Re: Williams would consider staying even if it means less mo

    Agreed.
    I want to keep him. Why? Because 2 years in a row, he got seven sacks coming up the middle.

    That's hard to do. Plus, QBs absolutely hate it when the pocket collapses up the middle. There's nowhere to go when it's up the middle.

    I also think Rogers WILL make more. But I think Williams SHOULD make more.

    Here's a question:

    If Williams leaves, do you take a shot at landing Rogers?

    I'm talking about if Rogers is willing to play for a fair deal, somewhere in the 3-4 million dollar range. Packers could say they are a legit Superbowl contender, and Rogers would stay within the same division, having a shot to get revenge at the Lions twice a year.

    At 28 years of age, Rogers is in his prime.

    No. If we try to sign Rogers, we may as well go after Cletius Hunt and Grady Jackson. Rogers has all the God-given assets to be one of the great ones, but his laziness overcomes all that.

    He didn't look too lazy on that pick-six earlier in the year... j/k, but seriously.


    Rogers is still under contract, and I doubt that The Lions would just jettison him. They at least gotta be in take-what-we-can-get mode, right? And if they hold, no way will they trade him within the division.

    If they can't move him, they'll release him. If Ted picks him up, I trust Ted, but Rogers has proven himself to be lazy as hell and Ted has shown himself to be intolerant of lazy players.

    I'm gonna say he could fetch around $5 million/yr, with a pretty huge signing bonus, what with the salary cap hike. he's definitely hitting free agency at the right time

    If that doesn't speak "Packer Person", I don't know what does. Hopefully they will find some middle ground and remain in Green Bay. I truly believe that Williams could play any spot on the Dline.. and do it well.

    He has my vote.. not that means didly squat.. but just the same he has it.

    Williams showed up big in the biggest game. If TT wants to keep him around I'm all for it.

    I've just assumed that he is gone after the season. If he goes Harrell will replace him pretty well.

    I was arguing with a Lions fan on Fantasy Football Jungle about Rodgers. He is lazy and inconsistent. He's not a fit for this team. He'll take plays off. The Lions are letting him go because of this reason. I wouldn't sign Rogers at all. His track record worries me a lot and it's his on the field track record that does.

    Thats pretty good news, he is a good DT and it sounds like he wants to stay in Green Bay and thats the type of players I like.

    I'd LOVE for him to be here, but realisticly, i think someone will offer him the moon, and he will take it.
