    interesting note towards the bottom of the article. It says something to the effect that linebacker is the Packers top priority and that they plan on bringing in 4 veterans to compete for 2 open positions. Raonall Smith and Barrett Green were mentioned as posible signings.

    Nice

    Our RBs are tops in the league

    Ahman
    Gado
    Davenport

    THAT is a trio no defensive coordinator wants to think about.

    -----

    as far as the LB quote goes....WHOOOOO!! Bring in some vets, and lets rock this party. We already have one of the best lines in the league (tell me KGB\Pickett\Jenkins\Kamp isnt a top 5 line...i dare ya!)

    we need CBs and another LB(or 2 or 3 according to that article!) and we're set on defense.
    -----

    add the fact we might get Hawk or Mario...

    im drunk..

    It is, thats a killer 3 man combo of death!

    I dont argue for the sake of arguing, I call it like I see it, if people agree...fine. But this is a good RB core

    I'm not entirely happy with this signing. With this many running backs there it seems like there is something extra in the laundry basket.

    I like our group at running back, like the idea of bringing in competition at linebacker, possibly a backer in the draft. I have another wish. Sign Law or Woodson. Brett's gotta be watching.

    California Cheese-says:"I'm not entirely happy with this signing. With this many running backs there it seems like there is something extra in the laundry basket."

    Packers always bring in over 80 players into training camp in late July. They all compete for positions on roster. All the Packer running backs will compete. Packer Contracts are not guaranteed. Only the signing bonus has to be paid. I don't see any down side to bring Davenport back. If he isn't a better back that other running back on the roster. He will be released . Since Packer contracts are not guaranteed, Packers will only have to pay the reporting bonus which is guaranteed. Davenport contract figures are not know yet, but I don't think they are real high. He is a back up running back who is coming off an injury.

    It has been said by many NFL football people, that a NFL team can always use good running backs as they are prone to injuries. The Packer experience with running backs last year , backed that thory. I think, the Packer went through 7 last year.

    Packer fans should have no problem with the signing of Davenport. he has showed to be a capable back up to Green, but he needs to stay healthy. If Davernport doesn't show the Packers he is able to stay healthy , I don't think he will make the Packers '06 regular season roster.

    What's wrong with "extra"? Last year that little extra was used up fast and it was that extra that helped keep the running game afloat. By the way, don't get really unhappy if you see another "extra," a running back, drafted in the middle rounds, thereabouts.

    I believe this means that ****** will be the KR, and they will reduce Ferrgy's ST playing time quite a bit. Don't have any problems with that one bit.

    I'm quite shocked about this signing...

    Don't get me wrong, it's okay...But I was fairly sure "the phantom shite-er" would gone...

    I mean, isn't that all we ever heard. Football can be strange sometimes.

    Everybody's so sure...and then...Here he is.

    Okay....RB's are all-set.

    Hey TT is doing a nice job thus far in my opinion. He's resigning the key players and letting the minor ones go..

    Maybe this is why Fisher didn't get a new deal..

    I like this signing, with a new blocking scheme which should benefit the running game, we're beefing up our backfield so we can hopefully pound the ball and eat up the clock to win some games like in years past

    I'm surprised by this signing. With all of Davenport's injuries, and Rosenhaus as his agent, I thought the Pack would let him go. Plus I think it was him who got Terence Murphy injured last year by muffing a kickoff and causing an opponent to run into him.

    If Davenport can stay healthy, it will be good to have him back, but that's a big IF.

    TT just might be setting him (Davenport) up for a trade!
