    Considering the timing of Hendo's cut I don't think TT will lett Griffith out of Green Bay without a contract.

    IMO also, this is a "Must do" deal. We can't be sure how much our OL will improve this year so a blocking FB who can also catch the ball is a no-brainer. TT may be forced to open his wallet even though FBs aren't traditionally highly paid. This guy would be worth it. Atlanta wasn't one of the best running teams by accident. They had the blocking. We need it badly. My ledgendary impatience with FA would be eased if TT got him inked. "Guaranteed money" is the linch-pin term this year. Jenkins was signed,IMO, because of the $6mil up-front. Give this FB the same $6mil and our blocking problems are solved back there. He'll make the job easier for any RB we may have to be satisfied with this year.

    Knowing WHO to sign, when, and for how much is VERY important.
    The FB position isn't a high profile area, but is VERY important. Hopefully this deal will get done.

    You would think if the Packers informed Henderson of his future relaese must mean we have some kind of agreement with Griffin before the visit

    Maybe they plan on resigning Henderson at a lesser price, as an insurance policy.
    Of course i'm just guessing.

    Me too. I got pissed @ Denver, though. The Pack had a visit lined up, but the a-hole Broncos didn't let him leave!

    Are there any updates on whether or not he's left yet? If he's still visiting, I'd say that's good news, right?

    It's a little funny that when Griffith visited Tampa it was more news in the National media, yet when he visits Green Bay not much of a peep....I'm wondering if the Packers are alot more tight lipped about things than over organizations to the local and national media?

    Sometimes keeping a low profile can pay off better then banging a drum.
    I'd rather have the happy surprise of finding out something is DONE, not just a rumor.

    Does anybody else ever wonder why Green Bay is always way down on the list of when players visit teams? How come we never get someone in and not let them leave without a contract in hand?

    The Falcons are abandoning the zone blocking scheme this year, in which Griffith was a good fit, so maybe that's one reason he's become available. Thompson may also want to keep an eye out for any Falcon linemen who are let go on the grounds that they are too small for a conventional blocking scheme.

    I never thought I'd be excited about signing a fullback, but I like Griffith alot. He'd be a great fit, and hopefully TT gave him some good looking numbers.

    I don't think that one is quite accurate.

    TT is one who isn't willing to overpay. I'd be down right shocked if it happened though (not the signing, but rather Griffith becoming highest paid FB).

    From the looks of things, JG is either staying the night @ Lambeau, or he is gone, hopefully with an offer on the table.

    Matt Lehr was released. I think he violated the substance abuse policy though. Maybe we could sign him to a minimum contract.
