    There have been rumors he could come to GB next year, would he be the difference ?

    This is the older, diminished post injury JJ btw, not the DOPY version

    Why would Watt want to go from a team that trades DeAndre Hopkins for a washed up running back to a team that wastes its 2020 draft ? That isn't even mentioning all the dumb coaching moves he saw in the NFCCG. Watt needs to go to a team that has a chance to win it all.

    You called it. The Homer's gave you a rough time but you were right to doubt those chokers. I never drank the kool aid either. Saw enough of the soft defense and special teams to know the Packers weren't a good bet to win it all.

    The Packers don't have enough cap space to trade for Watt, who in addition is past his prime anyway.

    Yeah they can’t beat good teams that count in the playoffs year in year out. I picked the Bucs to go before the season started then especially after they punished Green Bay in the reg season. It just sucks man. They gotta find a way to keep Rodgers happy for next year they should be back in it again the niners Seahawks Bucs packers should be top four teams in the nfc but this was easily there best chance to do it. Rodgers is upset who knows what happens moving forward with the low salary cap

    If he wants to come to GB and take a small say 5-7 million dollar deal to be near his family and maybe Ring chase depending how our team looks I'd be all for him coming to GB.

    But not if he expects to get big money he's had a lot of injuries and we don't have a ton of cap space.

    JJ Watt is currently under contract with the Texans for next season, scheduled to make $17.5 million. There's no way the Packers could or should pay that much money to him.

    Threads like these illustrate someone's inability to just do a little contract searching in the googly machine. LOL

    I read an article somewhere
    .
    This D is definitely missing another playmaker on the DL outside of Clark

    You really want/need 2 of 3 in a 3-4

    And then obviously a CB opposite J-aire

    I am talking about if they fail to trade him and he gets cut, I see no way we could trade for him.

    But if they cut him I could see signing him if he wanted to take a small contract likely short term in order to try to ring chase and be closer to family.

    Because they could free up 17.5k of cap space. If they go into a rebuild by trading Watson, there is no reason to keep Watt

    They would trade him. They’re not going to cut Watt.

    No one will want to pay him 17.5 m and give anything of value. His best years are behind him.. With the cap going down him getting cut is more likely than a trade.

    Watt reportedly wants out and he's been both injury prone and less productive the last few years if no team is willing to pay him the 17.5 million and give up draft capitol to get him the Texans could easily decide to cut him to save all that money especially if Watson gets traded and they go into total rebuild mode.

    Plus there is always the possibility Watt forces the issue if they can not trade him

    He ain’t coming here .. would be a fantastic story but IMO

    It’s a big name and people think he has to be good, and he is from here... that isn’t the way to handle this

    Even if the Texans cut Watt I don't think he would be interested in agreeing to a contract that made sense financially for the Packers.

    Cap implications aside, if used properly he could still be a big help and give you big plays here and there. Even in decline he's a huge upgrade over Lowry and Lancaster.
