None of us can say with surety than anything specific is going to happen, except that the Packers will have to field a team this year, and ensuing years, within the confines of the restrictions that are there in the salary cap.
We'd all like to be a fly on the wall, listening in on conversations between Murphy, Ball, and Gutekunst, as they discuss the issues, and communications with players and their agents. It's not going to happen.
It reminds me of a friend of mine who said he could call the flip of a coin six times in a row. I told him he would be just as well off saying it would be heads six consecutive times. He said I was wrong.
After considering it for a while, he said although both are equally as probable happening, he felt more confident in calling each flip.
He didn't get past the second flip, when he called tails, and it was heads. No matter what we see as an avenue out of this mess, and for success, we're not going to be 100% right. It all depends on the human nature of the players involved, and the perspectives the people with the purse strings see, in each one of them.
Just like the coin flips, each one is it's own problem, and can effect the entire string of events.
