    I wish we drafted Travis Fredrick last year instead of Jones. I didn't like EDS so no big deal to me.

    Very disappointing.
    I thought Ted was all about signing his own?
    Rodgers about to have his 3rd different center in 3 years. Not good.

    I originally wasn't an EDS fan but once he became proficient at making the line calls he got better. He was pretty good last year and showed something only a few other guys on this team showed.....the ability to return from injury without missing any time.

    I'm not happy with this, but mainly because we don't know anything about Tretter. The team obviously saw more of Tretter during his practices at the end of the season, and their praise was high, but essentially a rookie center is not ideal.

    Deal is for four years and $14.25 million.

    I don't think that EDS is a great center by any means, but as far as I know there aren't any surefire starters in the draft and I don't feel comfortable going into the season with a guy who hasn't played a single snap in the league.

    Man at that deal I would have liked to have him back. This one is a mistake by Ted IMO

    I just don't get why Ted doesn't value continuity with the guy who makes the line calls and snaps the ball to the franchise.

    One of the easiest positions to replace

    Or they have been watching someone else and feel confident in him.

    Every year people freak. Every year it's an overreaction.

    I'm not going to freak out but I do think it was a mistake. Life will go on but at that kind of $ I think he should have been brought back.

    Again it's easily replaceable. They clearly made little to no effort to resign him. I'm going to trust it's not an issue.

    Ok, so this is one I don't get. This line wasn't amazing to begin with, but they were starting to gel. Now taking away a guy that Aaron trusted to be our future center doesn't add up. Aaron needs protection and we don't seem that serious about it. I'll trust we'll find a solution, but this has me a little worried.

    I thought EDS played solid, $3.5 avg. isn't much so it could become one big mistake.

    What do we do now? The coaches seemed pretty high on Tretter last year, but haven't played a snap yet, and we probably aren't gonna find a good FA center, so should we just go with Tretter?

    I'd definitely be more worried about Bahktiari and Bulaga staying healthy then I would be about EDS when it comes to protecting Aaron.

    We won't go into Training Camp with only Tretter at the center position that I can guarantee you

    I wouldn't be shocked to see Lang at C and Tretter at the guard.....with another tweener o-lineman draft pick in camp as well.

    That will probably be found in the 4th Rd if I was a betting man

    EDS was pretty solid in pass blocking and I don't think a center is as easy to replace if you want to make it.

    It shouldn't come as a surprise though that you come up with that as there's absolutely nothing TT can do wrong in your opinion.

    Sherrod practiced at guard his rookie camp which put him out of the running for tackle for the season. I don't recall how he did but that may still be an option if they give Lang a shot at center.

    Hahahaha I saw you crying about someone assuming about you the past couple days in a post, getting all upset. Yet you do it now.

    I get you're new here but there was a time where I had to fend off a poster who thought I was racist for my dislike of hawk. I thought Crosby should have been ran off years ago. I'm sure I could attack more individual issues.

    Sorry, I don't partake in the sky is falling in the offseason often.

    Nothing better than musical chairs on the OL.
