    Preston Smith, ZSmith, Amos, Turner, etc. And yes, AR takes up a chunk of it. But I suppose you’d rather the Packers continue to draft and develop, as opposed to spending the money.

    Your dislike for AR has clouded your love of the Packers. It’s sad.

    my post had nothing to do with rodgers. it was just to clarify the cap situation for you. geesh! you said "the Packers are in a reasonably decent cap situation." that's not accurate as of today.

    But aside of Blake Martinez the Packers don't have any core players headed for free agency after this season.

    the more I watch him this year, the less convinced I am he's a core player. I know they call him one all the time and refer to him as the field general etc, but I think there are a lot of guys that play at his level, they're cheap too.

    To be fair to Blake, he isn't a core piece of a defense...but at ILB we have no buddy worth placing any trust in. In Blake we have a fairly fundamentally sound player...he isn't blessed with exceptional speed, he doesn't diagnose plays incredibly fast...but he has no fear of impact usually even if it is late or after the play developed and is easily an above average ILB in the league.

    The question on whether to resign Blake is going to be governed more by how does the market see him. If one just looks at stat lines I fear he will be more expensive than he arguably is worth...however there is also a peace of mind knowing precisely what you have, which IMO Blake provides. He isn't what I would call a playmaker but the dude is solid at precisely what he is. I still wish Jake Ryan was healthy and here to assist him...

    Bryan Bulaga is definitely a core player at this point. This was posted a few weeks ago but Bulaga is grading out better than Bahk so far this year

    Are you seriously saying Bulaga isn't a core player? Our best performing OL...

    Fwiw, I'd rather re-sign Fackrell than Blake.

    I sense we will sign only one of these two back. With Fackrell's 2018 season and if he can show good signs this year being behind the Smiths I truly hope for his sack the dude cashes in. Hate to see him go, but solid guy deserving it.

    Way early to be speculating on our FA's, but with the next draft looking to be very offense heavy. Blake seems to be fairly safe to be resigned. Fackrell should also be ok as well. Tramon, Mason, and Geronimo could be in trouble though of being re-signed.

    mason? nah...he's a lock. blake's probably ok too. of that group tramon's probably the least secure.

    i have no idea, it's a long time between then and now. He actually looks less impactful to me now, than when he was a rookie. He'd be fine to keep on the roster, but I think fans have him way overvalued because of his the number of tackles he has attached to his name.

    I doubt the upcoming draft has that much of an influence on what the Packers do in the Free Agent Market (with their own or others). If anything the Free Agent Market, as Gute proved this season, is where you go to get your immediate starters and the draft is where you go to get your hopeful/future starters.

    I do agree with your first statement, way too early to accurately predict what the Packers will be doing in Free Agency or the draft. A lot can happen between now and then, guys can play better, worse, get injured or have another player step up and make them totally expendable.

    Inside linebackers that perform on a level with Martinez won't be cheap to sign in free agency.

    There's no doubt Bulaga currently is a core player. We already discussed about it possibly not being smart to re-sign a 31-year old tackle with a significant injury history in a different thread already though.

    Fackrell's 2018 season was a complete fluke. Another team will overpay for him because of it though.

    The Packers should save the cap space and move on from Crosby after this season.

    In a rare instance, I pretty much agree with everything Wimm says above.

    - We haven't had reliable consistency at ILB since AJ Hawk's 2010 season. Those guys may be out there, but we weren't able to bring them here until they drafted Blake Martinez. Blake's solid play allows others to take chances.
    - I was a big naysayer of re-signing Bulaga previously. I still feel that while he's playing great, it won't last forever. It feels like people are thinking about the two blackjacks that they just got and pushing all the money onto the table expecting another one. Eventually the luck fades, and so will Bulaga's luck escaping injury. I would keep a 90% healthy Bulaga.
    - Fackrell is not an impact player, and I don't think he's all that consistent either. Someone else will over-pay him and we will find a younger version. Hopefully an better player at that.
    - I love Crosby, but I agree that this is the case of moving on for the sake of cap space and also cutting bait before it stinks. It's not like we've got Matt Prater!

    Mychal. Erik is not a free agent.

    I disagree with this, but most likely because we have very different opinions of the level at which Martinez is performing.

    Martinez has been average this season but in free agency it would most likely take several millions a year to sign an inside linebacker performing at that level.
