    Where in the heck did I state anything... to me this is a make or break year for Ted. I question what plans Ted has... for sure the he didn't envision so many holes going at this point. But maybe that is the point?

    I would totally forget about randy moss if we sign Keyshawn. Was pretty funny he got cut after his reaction to the Dwayne Jarret pick, to put it lightly, he was excited.

    Keyshawn is HELLA slow. I don't know if we need slow receivers.

    I wouldn't mind bringing him in for a look but I think there will be better ones out there in a few weeks.

    BTW, I remember in the draft coverage Keyshawn talking about the Moss-GB potential deal and saying something like "I think any WR would love to have a chance to play with a QB like brett favre sometime in his career."

    If you give that credence, he may be interested in GB.

    I don't think Key is the answer.

    Keyshawn = Redzone Target. Big time. This guy could potentially work for us, especially in our offense. Whether or not we'll get him is another story entirely.

    This just in: The Packers announced today that they are going to sign Keyshawn Johnson, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens, Ricky Williams, Tank Johnson, and half of the Cincinnati Bengals current roster. Head coach Mike McCarthy will be fired and replaced by former Packer great Mossy Cade.

    Key is slow, but as popcynical alluded to, he could be the redzone target that bubba no longer is...I see him serving as a bit of a TE role in our offense

    He'd be worth a one-year deal with incentives - if only to provide a bridge until (if?) K-Rob gets back and the young guys develop. All that said, I wouldn't be in too much of a hurry to sign him unless we are forced to. The WR pool is Key and Moulds right now, I expect 4-5 more guys to be in it in a month.

    He's 35. Let him sign with someone else.

    I don't want him.

    It's obvious TT has decided to live or die by rookies and youngsters in his tenure, so I don't want anyone taking snaps away from those rookies.

    Perhaps if James Jones ends up being injured or not doing much in Training Camp, then we can go after KJ. Until then, I'd like to give the youngsters an opportunity to prove themselves, and I'd like the staff to dangle the #3 WR position in front of the youngsters to keep them hungry.

    IF KJ came in, I don't think that could happen.

    But you could say the same about Marc Boerighter and Jennings last season. Boerighter was brought in to be the No. 2 or 3 guy and Jennings beat him out easily.

    I'd rather have a young guy facing a vet to beat in camp than simply hand him the job (or make him beat a bunch of undrafted/late round guys). We need another WR in camp with some experience and who is capable of holding down the No. 3 spot. Now, whether Keyshawn is that guy or not is debateable (I would lean towards no), but we do need someone.

    Im not all about Keyshawn, i live in North Carolina and hes not a favorite son at the moment.

    But i think he could definetly help this team. For everyone out there saying absolutely not.... some of you were all about the Moss coming here.

    and last year keyshawn had a better year than both of Moss's last two years combined. hes still got reliable hands, he still moves the chains better than any reciever in football. hes still the best possession guy out there.
    I mean id feel a lot better knowing that key was out on the flanks on a 3rd and 8. or a 2 and goal situation. thats all. if he comes great, if he doesnt i cant wait to see who steps in and wins the job.

    The four teams that want Keyshawn
    Posted: Wednesday May 02, 2007 05:52AM ET

    Keyshawn Johnson might have to put his television career on hold. Word is there might be a pretty good market for him. The Eagles, Chargers, Giants and Titans are rumored to be among the teams that are at least thinking about pursuing Johnson.

    He'd be a good fit for the Titans.

    Get Keyshawn. Averaged 70 catches a season for the past 5 years and is a total team guy and one of the best blocking WR in history. Not a deep threat but a weapon inside the 40 and we need that. Other than Driver and Jennings we don't have a proven NFL receiver. What good is cap space if you don't use it.

    Let's pass on Keyshawn, there will be better options for this team in a month (Plus we'll have a few minicamps to view the young guys).

    i don't mind Keyshwan. he acts like a bitch every now and then, but i'm fairly certain we would be better off with him, than without him.
