    He must have meant that Hawk is the leader because he calls the plays... Because as far as leadership goes, Woodson is the hands down leader on this D...

    After hearing barnett is on the block i think he may go to buffalo or houston.
    We will draft some1 to replace him. Any news on donald lee/brandon jackson i know they have been released where will they go.
    I told my fellow english fans that barnett will go and bigby half way through the season and i said al would go but they mocked me looks like i was right.

    Lee is gone. I know they had serious talks about cutting him at camp last year so that wasnt a surprise. Alot of packer experts think there is a strong chance that Brandon Jackson might come back next year, but I would be surprised.

    I'd keep Jackson. It's not like he's asking anything too expensive. His market value should be 4 yrs in $13.14 mil range and $6 mil guaranteed. His significance as a pass blocker is undervalued. Don't want a Stafford or Romo do we....

    I agree with you there..... anyone remember how good 3rd down back Kevin Faulk was for the Patriots and Tom Brady all those years? That's what I see out of BJax, and let's face it: how successful Rodgers is on 3rd downs is pretty much what makes us great, so we gotta stay good there.

    You can't have too many capable backs anyway.

    Sign The Kuhn, dammit!

    Half the fun of watching the Packers last year was yelling "KUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHNNNNNN" at my TV every time he got the ball.

    makes me "think" that Jenkins was never approached for new deal cuz they wanted to get Hawk and the little ones done b4 the cba ended

    Once a new cba is done, I think they will rush to get Jenkins signed

    I think Jenkins is gone soon after the free agency period begins. He's going to demand a lot of interest and therefore he will be too expensive to keep. If Thompson wanted to, and thought he could keep him my guess is that the deal would have already been done. And I think it's likely Thompson sees Neal as Jenkins' replacement.

    Couldn't Thompson franchise Jenkins? He didn't franchise anyone else yet did he?

    I have not gone through the thread, but does anybody know if Sam Shields is a free agent or is he under contract! I know he was an undrafted free agent!

    I don't know what to think of this. I am sure we would have heard if he was tendered.

    It's not that I don;t think we should or should not tender him, it is that it was reported that we did not. All I can find in news is that we did not tender him, but Pat Mayo said Jones said he has been tendered.

    If they did tender him, they would have had to have done it last week. The CBA talks extension prohibits teams from doing deals with the players during the extension as I understand it. If they tendered him last week, I'm sure the major Packers news outlets would have posted something.

    Apparently James Jones and Brandon Jackson were both tendered. Whats funny is all kinds of websites and news sources were reporting that we did not tender them.
    Here's link on Brandon Jackson.
    Brandon Jackson was tendered a contract too | ProFootballTalk

    Spencer Havner was also tendered.

    1) Not worth the money. He'd be paid the average of the top 5 players at his position, around $13 Million for the one year.

    2) If you had to pick one position we're sickly deep at, it's DE. With Mike Neal and Johnny Jolly set to return, plus CJ Wilson and Howard Green, we're pretty set at that position. We'll still get a compensatory pick for Jenkins, so it's not like we'd be letting him go for nothing.
