    I know it likey will not happen but our linebacking core would be amazing if it did. I like Poppinga but he's a low 2nd to 3rd tier LB. What do you guys think are the chances we land him in this very thin free agency?

    I doubt it. The Bears are trying to keep him.

    Can't see it happening. He's going to want a lot of coin. I can see Green Bay picking a lesser-known guy though.

    I don't think there's a spot for Briggs, unless you want to move AJ Hawk. Briggs is a pursuit Weak side linebacker, like Hawk. Pop is strong side, and needs to cover.

    Thomas from the Vikings at a much lower contract would be just as effective as Briggs from Chicago IMO.

    I don't want Faneca here unless it is a very short term, front end loaded contract.. If Wahle wasn't worth a look, why spend more on a guy that is older and more of a mauler?

    For me Wahle was coming off an injury and had lost his edge...

    i think Faneca could give at least 2 very good years, and that would give maybe Colledge or whom ever a chance to mature more..

    Or at leas tin principle that is my idea

    The only thing I see though is Faneca cashing in a big time contract, I wouldn't say no, but it will take a huge cap constraint to get it done.. IMO.

    Just saying the dollars might not work in a 2 year window more so.

    This is true but we have Andrew...


    O wait DAMN IT~!!!!!!!

    LOL

    But we all know Ted wont spend that on a guard, just like Ron Wolf

    Maybe $5 mill a year, but not 9

    Last I heard was the Niners were looking at him and he was asking for too much money so the Niners passed.

    I actually heard someone/somewhere mention Rosevelt Colvin as a possible option for the Packers, someone who is not going to command mega bucks, would be one of the players in the next tier of FAs, and someone that would be able to compete with Poppinga.

    Hm.....

    Sounds like he's looking for a pay day anyways which I don't think the Packers would be willing to pay.

    A lot of scouts think that AJ Hawk is the best coverage LB in the league. Move AJ to SAM to get the best WIL in the league (Briggs).

    Hawk
    Barnett
    Briggs

    THAT WOULD BE SCARY!

    WE'd have to offer around $20 million in guaranteed money. Worth it IMO.

    Not going to happen though.
