    Source.

    GBPG reports it's a 5 year deal, with financial terms undisclosed.

    Good job by Brandt, getting the picks essentially on time.

    Now only thing left is to have Harrell cleared by the docs to participate in contact practices (the first of which is tomorrow at 2PM). Here's hoping! :cross:

    God I hope he clears. That would be a bad year to start the year.

    Anyways, great news! I can't wait for this year to start.

    Re: Harrell signed

    There's always some bad cheez that dones a negative perception about it from time to time.


    Me? Not really. I wasn't overly concerned either. I can't remember a draft pick holding out for an extended amount of time. I think T Buck did?

    Re: Harrell signed

    Yeah T-Buck didn't suit up until the third game of the regular season. That's the last pick I remember to hold out for an extended period of time. I remember in his first game as a punt returner that T-Buck took it to the house lol. I guess that WASN'T a sign of things to come eh?

    Here's the details of the deal: ESPN Story







    Basically, 5 year deal if he plays regularly, 6 if not. Just over $8m guaranteed, and a max value of $15m. Not bad, supposing he plays. :cross:

    I'm probably wrong but I expected a higher price for him. I wonder how much of the rookie cap Brandt used and how much of our total cap is left. Probably at least $10mil of the latter. Anybody know?

    BTW, and of extreme importance of course, let's keep our fingers and toes crossed (gonna be hard to walk straight) that he is cleared to practice. And absolutely NO (repeat NO!) cut blocks on him in practice. Save that for the darned Eagles.

    Good for Harrell and the Packers...now there's nothing left but to win over the fans by making plays. It sucked that this kid got a negative reaction from the fans when he was drafted. It wasn't his fault and we might all applaud TT for making this pick after we find out what we have in Harrell.

    <edit> OK, some wouldn't applaud Thompson for this pick if he went to Pro Bowl after Pro Bowl.

    A running back? Who wanted a running back, considering that Lynch was already gone by the time the Packers drafted? Sometimes these sportswriters just make stuff up.

    Anyway, it's great to have all the new players signed on time. I didn't think Harrell was the type to hold out.

    I agree. I would add that I think Harrell has a chip on his shoulder of the nature of "I'm gonna show you I was worth this pick!" ... he has that quiet nature to him so far. Thinking more about it, Jamaal Reynolds had the same demeanor... ****.

    Anyhow, I hope Harrell blows some OL up and slams the **** out of some RB and QB's.


    I wonder if Harrell and Co. turn out to be studs if fans will still bitch about more than half of the picks made by Thompson every draft.

    I think some people on this forum would and I don't think we're one of them.

    Looks like all the hand wringing some were doing a few weeks ago about us not getting our picks signed was wasted.
    Just like i said it was at the time.
