    That's a 5th round pick and an 8th round pick - not picks 5 and 8 in the 1st round.

    Yeah we on the Buffalo boards read that, and someone else got information that the Eagles were only offering the Bills a 4th round pick for him. That doesnt seem like too juicy of an offer. The Texans offered a DT and a 3rd round pick.

    If I were Marv Levy I would be trying to work out numbers with GB rather than the Eagles.

    If this offer has really taken place, I would
    assume this deal should be done by the end
    of the week.

    Just to keep things clear:

    BUFFALO GETS:
    Javon Walker
    5th ROUND pick (2006)

    GB GETS:
    Eric Moulds
    3rd ROUND pick (2006)
    4th ROUND pick (2007)

    The real stopper to this deal is GB would have to negtiate a contract with Moulds before the deal would go through. He is looking at something in the area of 3 years 15 million.
    #1 He is not worth that.
    #2 How many deals has TT done worth that amount?......0
    The best I can see TT offering Moulds is 1 yr 1 mill. with some incentives.
    Don't think that is going to happen. But I can dream.

    the years in NFL contracts dont mean much. how is TOs 7 year deal or whaever looking like?

    How is Diggs contract looking. Guys get cut when contracts are backloaded.

    Id sign him for 3-4 years, with a backloaded contract, just gotta make sure the bonus isnt too big.

    You trade the contracts. Moulds is over 6 million in salary for 2006. The picks compensate for the high price. The signing bonus is accelerated to Buffalo (so the Packers don't pay). Green Bay could cut Moulds after each year and gain cap room at no cost. It could be looked at as a year to year deal. No need for a new contract right away. The Packers have the room.

    There can be conditions on the picks. It's all part of the negotiations.

    Remember like a wilting flower Walker's value goes down every day until zero at the trade deadline. Why do you want to keep him? You will get more games out of Moulds than Walker. Think!! Walker is leaving and he is not coming back. Do you want nothing in return??

    The deal is absolutely great. Think about it, were getting an extra draft pick, getting rid of a guy who can sit and still get paid, a draft pick next year, oh yeah and by the way, a guy named ERIC MOULDS!!!

    I'm usually a more conservative Packers GM (hehe) but in this case I think the Pack needs to bite on it immediatly

    I just now read this thread and wasn't aware of the trade rumor until 15 minutes ago. If it's true, I think it's a great deal.

    Best case scenario with Javon, at this point, is that he comes to camp on time, has a monster year, and then leaves in the offseason.

    Worst case-T.O. type scenario.

    Everybody makes very good points about the contract - Moulds' that is. The Bills are on the hook for the signing bonus, so we would essentially be on a year to year deal with him. It's like leasing an apartment with the option to renew.

    Do you think our brass would allow the zoo that went on in Philly to invade Packer Camp?

    Probably not to that extent, but with the new CBA there's not a whole lot an organization can do to a player like that. Trade him, release him, pay him to sit on the bench - those are the only options.
