    there are no rumors started about this team by anyone other than media. We may as well start our own rumors, they'd be as credible or as likely as any the media "reports" on. By the time this team releases anything, someone is usually already signed. They run a pretty tight ship in that regard.

    I've seen Matt Forte and Danny Trevathen connected to us. But that is about it. Again, these are just rumors from various websites/media etc.

    it seems there are guys here who get hints before it happens. Maybe just twitter fanatics? But they know before me, and I want to know. lol

    I'll give you 2 dollars for every "hint" they get right before it happens, if you give me 1 for every hint that doesn't happen, deal?

    I'm on Twitter constantly (it's a curse really), it's 90% garbage. Be aware of the Ian Rapopart and Adam Schefty (bopth spelled wrong on purpose) fake twitter accounts if you decide to head out into the merky waters of the Twitter world

    Adam Schefter just reported the Packers are in talks with Matt Forte. I think this is a waste of FA.

    I think we can safely assume we won't be getting Marshall. Denver will bring him back now that they lost Danny and Jackson. I really hope Ted doesn't go after Shea Mclellin, he couldn't possibly sound more underwhelming.

    I wouldn't be mad if we signed him but I'd rather sign Trevathan.

    Who is Trevathan going to? I haven't seen anything on that.

    I don't. Especially at the right price. Rodgers has never had a RB like Forte. Who can get out into passing routes and catch the ball down field.

    Still nothing official. Last I read, Titans and Bears both "have an eye" on him.

    TE Owens Daniels is available. We better not pass him up again. That guy can still get open and ball.

    Another year of TT not being proactive and waiting until it's too late to jump in the pool.

    Its smart actually. Anyone who signs now before the signing period even begins, will be getting overpaid. Its a sign of a desperate team.

    it hasn't even begun yet

    anyway, I think it should be mandatory that for anyone complaining about Ted not doing anything, they need to have their guys, their price, listed for everyone to see before they put complaints on the forum. At least one guy.

    While Daniels might be a slight upgrade over Rodgers he's not the athletic tight end the Packers are in need of.

    Geez, calm down, the signing period hasn't even started yet.
