    As TheScout said, it could be possible for Packers to get Porter. Do you think it would be worth it? He has skill, but hasn't put up big numbers. And TheScout said he is somewhat identical to Walker in size. But is it worth talking a risk on him?

    Re: Get Porter?

    I'm assuming you mean Jerry Porter?

    He would be a good player for us. I've always been a fan of his. The question is what it would take to get him. I've haven't even heard he was on the block. Enlighten us with more info.

    Re: Get Porter?

    Thescout is new... go look at the post labelled TheScout is coming

    and hell yes bring in jerry porter... if we could get him for a conditional pick and robert ferguson id say yes... fergy is semi useless and with TT in control draft picks seem to multiply so giving one up for porter is a STEAL.... Donald Driver Jerry Porter Greg Jennings all of a sudden we have a solid solid solid recieving corp.

    Re: Get Porter?

    I'm too lazy to go the front page before I post something...so I have no clue how feasible this trade is...but if what Packnic described is all that the trade requires...then heck yes, go for him. He has a few breakout games/year...has been a solid up and coming receiver....wouldn't mind having him in green 'n gold.

    Re: Get Porter?

    Oh lol :
    This Dude : YES BRING HIM IN !!!

    Rumor: Already a couple days after the draft, rumor has spread that Oakland receiver Jerry Porter is unhappy with the organization and has requested a trade. Porter is a 7 year veteran that has played in the shadows of Hall of Fame bound receivers Jerry Rice, Tim Brown, and Randy Moss. Porter's best season came in 2004 when he caught 64 passes for 998 yards and 5 touchdowns. San Francisco, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, and Green Bay are said to be the interested teams at this moment.

    Packer Related: The Packers traded disgruntled WR Javon Walker to the Denver Broncos during Saturday’s Drafts. While the Packers have tried to address their receiving problems through the Draft they still lack a deep threat which Porter is.

    TheScout's Take Porter could be the impact player that Brett Favre may like. He has a lot of talent. He's a former 1st round pick that has been an underachiever for his career. A change of scenery might be what he needs to breakout. At 6’2â€

    Jerry Porter fizzled after one good year, he is quite massive though.

    Re: Get Porter?

    Hey its just reumblings right now, it could turn into something, or it could fizzle away and die. But by the sound of things, it looked like to me that TT believed Ferggy has talent and can still put up numbers. But IMO, I wouldn't mind this trade at all. Ferrgy has something against taking hits, and Porter could thrive in a system like MM's, since Porter has some nice moves and can gain yardage after the catch.

    Re: Get Porter?

    Arrow I love you, but think about what you just typed.

    Jerry’s most productive year for catches was last year and he had 76.

    Sure he turns 28 in July, but he still has some grease on those wheels.

    Jerry Porter would be a great pick up for the Pack and the Pack would be a great pick up for Jerry.

    As a Raider fan I will tell you that this is not a situation where he had one good year and fizzled out.

    Porter has flat out speed and that is why Al targeted him out of the draft. He can run a fly pattern with the best of them and Brett would love him. He also as he showed last year with Collins throwing him suicide passes, that he has above average soft hands, and is willing to take hit while going over the middle.

    Jerry has a reason for being upset with the Raiders. He was a third receiver and could have been a 1 or 2 with most teams in the last 3 years. He thought he had the opportunity until Al signed Randy, and I will tell you this with all conviction…. Randy benefited by having Jerry running a fly because teams had to cover Porter.

    Jerry Porter is no slouch and would be a great asset to the Pack.

    Porter is the man. He busted out the last half of the season. I'd love to have him on board.

    Re: Get Porter?

    Ah RP, I have missed you buddy.

    Can you adress the injuries that Porter has suffered? Where they freak accidents, or is Porter something of a liability when it comes to injuries?

    Also, what type of character does Porter have?

    Re: Get Porter?

    that'd be great to get Porter if the rumor is indeed true.

    Driver and Porter. Wtih Jennings or Gardner in the slot. That seems like a pretty solid receiving core for Favre to work with. Favre is also known for making receivers better so maybe Porter would indeed thrive with Brett.
