    I just saw this and wondered if we possibly take a look at him once we hit camp and the results may not be what we were hoping....

    It says they were looking for a 2nd at the draft, I have to assume that price will come down as we get closer to the season. Thoughts?

    Positives: He’s young (24) and he’s due to be paid $896K this season. He’s got three years of NFL experience. And he used this phrase correctly: "I know, as well as everyone else knows, that I can play some football," Kendricks said. "The proof's in the pudding. The rest, I can't control." ;) http://espn.go.com/blog/philadelphi...8/mychal-kendricks-confident-in-crowded-field

    Negatives: The price: I’d fall off my chair if Thompson paid a 2nd or 3rd round pick for him because if he did, the only way that would make sense would be sign him to a long-term deal since his current deal expires at the end of this season. The combination of a high pick, the cap space, and cash makes him joining the Packers very unlikely IMO.

    The correct usage, if one must insist on serving pudding, is "the proof of the pudding is in the eating" as you well know. I would concede that the usage quoted would be acceptable if we were talking about somebody where the eating part is a given, such as with Raji. Alternatively, if the Sumo wrestler belly fat were affectionately referred to as "the pudding", the usage sans the eating would make perfect sense. ;)

    I would be excited to get Mychal Kendricks after he had a breakout season in 2014. But as TJV correctly pointed out the price will be way too steep for the Packers to acquire him.
