    Hey Slick, I see your point but, I would try to grab a FA other than Rice because he would still be a #4 and at his age I would still take a much younger WR at that slot.

    As for Murphy, whenever he is healthy enough to play he still is far behind in conditioning and STILL has not played in any game. Only TC.
    I would give him a shot at punt return and #5 or #6 WR. If he stands out and climbs the depth chart...Great!!

    I can't say I'd go after Rice at all. I feel we have better WR then the Broncos and he would have been I think sixth on their team? I think with Koren we'll be okay or even Bragg.

    I agree with your choices. Lets see how the Packers Management play it.

    Hey Football Guru

    Robinson was cut because he is four year player and gets a roster bonus for being on the roster opening day. The Vikes will resign him. Do you just post without knowing what is going on? Sheesh.

    Skoal!

    Last I heard Andre Rison wasn't playing for anyone...j/k - he's too old.

    Rice would be ok. He decided to retire because he was #4 on the Broncos list and he didn't want to be that low on a roster.

    I say follow up on Troy Edwards.

    There has been rumor out of here in Green Bay that it could posssibly WR Jerome Pathon who was cut by Seattle could added to the Green Bay Packer roster.

    The papers are reporting Jerome Pathon(recently from the SeaWalruses) will be in for a look today. He's a bit of a nutcase, but talented. He wouldn't need much training, having been schooled in the Walrus' version of the WCO, similar to Sherman's.

    Rice-bad idea, old and slow.

    Pathon-from the little I know about him, could help. I like the security of a veteran, especially since you never know if/when Fergy or Driver will go down w/ an injury.

    The Seahawks can't catch. They continually have drop ball problems...and Pathon was cut from this group? Oh Boy.

    It all depends on Murphy, if he is healthy and looks as good as they were saying before he got hurt, I believe that we'll stand pat.JMHO Now watch them sign someone today. :-?

    Seriously, what about Antonio Freeman. Favre knows and likes him and speed was never his forte.

    Re: Hey Football Guru

    I'll work on knowing everything so I can be just as much as a know it all jerk as you. :roll:

    Freeman : I'd rather Sterling Sharpe come out of retirement then having Freeman back.

    I don't think Kelly Campbell was picked up by anybody. Very fast and I even saw him catch a ball once!

    This an article from Monday....

    Packers: Pathon to wear the green and gold?
    by Fanball Staff - Fanball.com
    Wednesday, September 14, 2005

    News
    The Packers will audition free agent receiver Jerome Pathon and could sign him to a contract as early as Tuesday, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Pathon was cut by the Seahawks during the preseason.

    Views
    Pathon would immediately add some depth to the Packers' receiving corps that lost their best playmaker on Sunday. However, his fantasy value is limited unless he can beat out Robert Ferguson for a starting gig.
