    Interesting note on KFFL:

    Adam Teicher, of the Kansas City Star, reporting for the Sporting News, reports the Kansas City Chiefs plan to shop for up-and-coming young players rather than high-priced veterans. They probably will begin their search at defensive tackle, where the Green Bay Packers DL Kenderick Allen would be a good fit

    The drafting of Jolly led the Packers to keep an extra DT last year.
    The Packers rotation has worked well and Allen was a low cost addition last year. Like all other businesses they likely have a budget at each position.
    Allen is probably more valuable to another team than the Packers. He will make more money elsewhere.

    The cap position and few veterans on the team make 2007 off season losses are going to hurt far less than an average year.

    Assuming Green stays I think the worst loss the Packers will absorb will be Taylor at LB.

    We are in very good shape when the "dust settles" in regards to players to keep or let go.

    Many teams have cap room until they re-sign several players, or, opt to let them go, creating the need to replace them which is just spinning wheels in that case.

    The Vikes, for example, are cap rich because they let half their defense go. Where will they be by the time they spend what they need to be as good as they were on "D" last year?

    We are very intact right now and have a bunch of cash. We should have everybody back on both sides of the ball plus upgrades where needed.

    I like it.
