    seriously it was again a great job by the scouting section but it is kind of frustrating that we are not getting any reward cause his contract is running up next year and there is little chance that he stays in GB cause he can be the starter some where else . is there anyway we can get something for him?

    I could see a possible trade early in the season for future draft picks, but other than that, we might sign him to a short term contract to stay as a backup or so we could get some compensation for him leaving.

    Ahh, I love misconceptions.

    We will, in fact, get something for Matt Flynn if he leaves via free agency. Look up "Compensatory pick."

    Don't you have to pay him a minimum of average top 5 or 10 QB salaries from this year? Which would be 10+ million.. no way.

    thats why you franchise then trade him. SOMEONE will want a guy who can start, and it would get the Packers something in return, and by tagging him, TT can work a deal to get something like the DL that he traded to Cleveland a couple years ago (completely brainfarting on his name)

    Yea, but that is quite a lot of money for someone who hasn't started but 1 game in his career. Matt Cassell started an entire season.

    The Packers don't trade him. Matt Flynn trades himself.

    The guy you are referring to is Corey Williams. But, I do hope we get something good out of it, should we happen to not keep him around after this year. Maybe even a 2nd Round Pick or something like that. Too early to tell.

    If you franchise them and plan on trading him, the Packers won't be on the hook for the salary. And most tag-n-trades can also include a new contract.

    It doesnt seem clear if they will indeed get a comp pick since he isnt a starter.

    On the other hand, they just cut Harrell, didn't they? We don't have too many options at QB if Aaron gets whacked.

    They cut him, but he made it past waivers and was signed on the practice squad

    That's one more game than any rookie QB who gets taken first overall in the draft.

    thanks, tells how much of an impact he's made since he was in GB LOL

    I think we'll get something for him, QB play is going to be horrible outside the top 10-12 QB's this year, he's going to be in demand. I'd be happy to get a 2nd or 3rd&5th for him next offseason.
