    Ill jump on the Jolly train- we was my second favorite dlineman behing Pickett- and saying Goodell reinstates him this year. I understand that legal problems are not good for business but I don't understand why most fans on here would be fine with letting Jolly walk- before his first "lean" running with the law, he was a very productive rotation player for us.
    Plus, he's under contract for another year if he's reinstated. So we get a proven player on the roster for those ineveitable injuries (knock on wood) and his experience can also be helpful to the younger guys coming in.
    Love Jimi.

    I was actually excited at alot of the draft picks and the UDFA signings and all these departures mean alot of these guys will actually make the team. Can't wait to see the UDFA's from MTSU, BYU and UTAH tear it up.

    You guys seem resigned to the fact that Jenkins will not be re-signed. Why? I ask because supposedly he is in New Orleans right now.

    Old, injury prone and wants a long-term, high dollar contract. Unfortunately, he's just at that age, and we can't really afford him.

    There is enough depth to send him on his way. I have no problem with him leaving and I thank him for his services.

    Its been accepted for some time that he was leaving, few fans feel he is a long term investment, but are happy to see him get paid.

    I want Cullen back with the Pack...Now that he has lasted past the 1st big wave, it can only help the Pack..

    We know they wont break the bank for him, but they will give hm a good pay raise IF they think he is deserving..

    If it hasn't changed, we should be getting a ton of picks, including a few 3rd rounders.
    Teddy will have a field day on Draft 2012. Too bad comp picks can't be traded though.

    We play the Bolts and the Lions of course..... and if Cullen goes to the Saints, dammit. We play them in the opener. He won't be hurt by then.

    I don't think we would get any compensation for Barnett since he was not a free agent and was just cut. Up to now the free agents that have been signed by other teams wouldn't get us much i.e Colledge, Jackson, Bigby, Hall, etc. All depends on Jones and Jenkins but where they were picked initially also figures into it I believe.

    Atari is gone? I completely forgot about him...not that he is important because he can't cover at all.

    I just read that the salary floor won't go into effect until next year so Ted may very well do nothing. The only thing I would like to see him do is pick up some bodies for the offensive line.

    Bigby not technically cut. Sorry my post was misleading.

    From GB Press Gazette. "At safety, the Packers haven’t shown any indication they’re going to re-sign Atari Bigby, a starter who missed 22 games combined the last three seasons because of ankle and hamstring injuries."

    I have never thought much of Bigby as a player. Literally worthless in coverage. He's good for a big hit once a game....but cannot cover anyone. See ya Atari.
