    Pissed off 350lb nose tackle + crappy interior line + old QB != good news

    Who cares? Maybe he should realize he's not worth that kind of money because he could fall apart at any moment.

    If I remember correctly the Packers took on Jackson and gave him a chance to show he still had it after NO...

    This is just a business move...

    The whole "ill-will" thing is unjustified.

    Few contracts are handed out based on the past.

    Grady should be thanking us for giving him a chance to get back in the mix.

    Move on---Let it go.

    Rod Gardner, same thing, but he showed some loyalty--Grady opened his mouth even last year wanting more money.

    Grady was too much of a liability, some games he would take residence in the opposition's backfield, but some games he would get winded/tightened knees, and have to sit, and he's a year older, whatever

    Has he even been signed by anyone? I haven't heard anything. that should tell him he's not in that upper tier he seems to want to claim.

    Somebody would have jumped on him by now if he was all that.

    Wouldn't you guys feel the same way. If any of you were fired and went to work for their competitor, wouldn't you want to stick it to your previous boss?

    I'm not saying the Packers should have re-signed him. I'm just saying what he is feeling is probably natural.

    so he's going to dominate for 10 plays, stopping the run...this is just another example of why we didn't resign him

    My biggest thing about Grady (g-r-a-v-y) Jackson is this.....

    On Packers.com the list both at these stats:

    • Grady Jackson (75) - 345lbs
      Colin Cole (90) - 325lbs

    Now, when you've watched these two standing side-by-side...

    Do they "look" like they're only 20 pounds difference? You tell me!

    Somebody's BS'n someone... fer sure!

    We should have at least made an attempt at Grady. Granted, he's not worth a big contract, but I'd have no problem signing him for a 2 year contract with maybe half the signing bonus he's asking for. He played his *** off for us the past two years, and we've seen the type of difference maker he can be. The man is massive. He sucks up blockers better than almost anybody out there, and he's a major reason why our defense did well last year. I would love to see him in a Packer uniform next year lining up next to Pickett - now that would be a killer defensive line. Too bad that's not going to happen. And as far as what he said about wanting to play against the pack, I don't blame him. I just hope he never does.

    I agree. Only the Packers and Panthers were interested in him when the Saints dumped him. He did a good job of overcoming a bad reputation with good play and good conduct when he started out with the Packers, but once again greed steps in and the reputation and ill-wll resurfaces.

    He'll probably get signed by someone because he still has something left to offer a team, but I think his own sense of self-worth is a lot higher than what most NFL teams think he's worth.

    I know you all are such experts and everything, but...

    It does seem there are people interested in Grady.

    Yep. And all three are in the same boat. Getting older with lots of questions physically and wanting a boat load of money. LOL.

    Every one of these teams would like to give him a shot...but NOT at the money he wants. Eventually, some team will sign him to a contract loaded with incentives.

    Other than his age I agree bt. The only draw back would be losing a younger player with potential.

    No No it is true that was/is their weights. What they didn't tell you was Colin was actually on the scale and Grady just had one of his legs and his belly on it when they weighed him. :moo: (note to Ryan: we need a big bellied smilie so I can put it in here.)

    Does that mean he would give his new team a full game's effort when/if he plays GB instead of just the handful of plays he gave GB?

    If so that would prove the Packer staff correct that he took plays off and dogged it while wearing the Green and Gold. If he don't that too proves them correct that he isn't worth the money he is asking.

    Is this the same Grady who got a chance to play when no one else wanted him? Is this the same Grady who signed a contract, spent all his money, and then had to get a loan from the Packers and then tried to hold them up for more money after they bailed his fat butt out? Grady needs a lesson on gratitude.
