    Packers | B. Taylor agrees to terms
    Fri, 24 Mar 2006 21:42:28 -0800

    Bob McGinn, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports the Green Bay Packers have agreed to terms with free agent LB Ben Taylor (Brown) on a one-year contract that probably was worth less than $1 million. The decision by Taylor to pick Green Bay over re-signing with the Cleveland Browns came down more to the possibility of significant playing time and maybe a starting job in Green Bay.

    :eek: Good deal and woth Poppinga 's inability to be ready by first game we still need a fly to the ball LB like; may I say it? A.J. Hawk! A side note; apparently GB has at least two candidates for C that have good upside potential with at least one guard besides the tackles. SO! Who me worry? LOL

    I am OK with this signing -- if he can stay healthy he has some upside. But even then the Packers only signed him to a one year contract.

    It is hard to get too excited, given that the 2 of the 3 "big" signings of (non-Packer) FA (Manuel and Taylor) GB has made, came down to decisions because they had a better chance of getting more playing time in GB -- in this case more than in that power house Cleveland.

    I also understand that we are competing for a Viking LB cast off R. Smith -- ignoring that LB was considered the weakest link in MN defense for the last several years -- I suppose some will drool over that signing too.

    I guess the good news is there is talent and depth at LB in the draft.

    Being excited about signing guys because they are cheap is kind of like the Fin who says, "the food sucked, it was uneatable," and then says. "and there wasn't nearly enough of it."

    Both signings look good to me.

    Maybe adding Woodson at CB and Hawk at LB would solidify the defence.

    Cundiff...Great.

    Get away from my team!

    Maybe we could invite Jose Cortez to camp also...

    Get a little shat-kicking fest going.

    Another solid signing, for under a million nonetheless...

    We finally have a solid tackling LB next to Nick Barnett...last year Barnett had to make a lot of tackles, and he finally has some help--

    And after re-evaluating this team, we didn't need the BIG free agent signing that I thought we did (though a name like Woodson would really get us flying high going into the regular season). Think of all the time-consuming drives that we had against us last year, especially in the second half. We now have someone else that can tackle, and we have a DT in Pickett that won't have to be subbed in and out like Grady was...I like this defense more after it overachieved by a lot last year

    I've stayed away from this thread because I don't want to sound negative and I didn't know much about Taylor. But after researching this, I don't see it. Why does this guy excite you guys? It's an OK signing but I think you guys are overevaluating the man. Why was a one year, less than 1mil contract the best this guy could garner? Do we really know more than all the GM's out there?

    i'm a student and i started a part-time job where i work every saturday and sunday, and let me say, it was REALLY tough adjusting to not looking forward to the weekend. it's one of those things that you don't think about until it's taken away. i believe such will be the case with TT losing Ryan Longwell. SO, what i'm trying to say is that i'm not looking forward to billy cundiff, and without longwell, i think that it really might cause TT to not look forward to the weekend anymore, either.

    No we dont. This is what Ive been saying. GMs get the benefit of the doubt with me until they prove theyre useless, which sherman did in his tenure.

    TTs first season, he had no money and a great draft

    This offseason, he has money, and is doing some dinking and dunking, but its not over, and we still have the draft which will rock my socks i bet.

    if this next season sucks, and the season after, cuz of TT, then get rid of him, or any GM who cant do the job.

    But its hard to blame TT for the injuries, thats for sure. Hopefully free weights helps.

    I'm not blaming TT and I'm glad he only signed for one year for less than a mil. I just said it's hard to get excited about signing a one mil per year lb when nobody else even offered him that.
