    As a Georgia Bulldogs fan, I would love this. Hope it's true, but I'm also not expecting too much.

    And who said that TT wasn't going to make a move that insured our playoff success?

    Sounds like Denver is trying to convince him not to leave.

    All the more reason to sign him. King was a pet pick of mine, and if he adds 20 lbs, he fits our prototype to a TT

    I like it. He's almost identical to Donald Driver in terms of size, speed and athleticism. Not the playmaker Cobb is by any stretch, but more athletic than Jones for sure. Can he be ready to take a few snaps in the slot by Sunday? If Jones isn't back Sunday then Quarless or Finley will probably take WR3 responsibilities and he would come in on 4 WR sets, where all he really has to do is occupy a defender. If he's smart enough to get up to speed in a month or so, he could be a significant upgrade to our overall passing game after Cobb gets back.

    And who do you replace McMillian with? That would leave us with only 3 safeties. He's only a second year player. Remember how everyone was calling for Sharper to be cut all the time in his first 2 or 3 seasons? He turned out pretty well. Too early to give up on Nate.

    That said, I think the obvious cut would be Nixon or Hill.

    Where did you see that? I'm not seeing where they've actually signed him yet. I see they signed Reggie Dunn to the PS, but that's it so far. Speculation is high on King, but if you found a confirmed source I'd love to see it. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places for it.

    The obvious cut would be Hill for sure. The only reason we signed him was because of the Starks, Franklin & Kuhn injury. If it weren't for that GB might have signed Charles Johnson to there active roster before losing him to Cleveland.

    It is typed at the bottom of the page:

    Yeah to GB! I wanted the Packers to have 5 WR's coming out of training camp anyway. It thought that they would keep Johnson because of his upside, but King played at a much higher level of competition and is much more NFL ready. I only want to see what he can do with YAC (Yards after Contact) which I didn't see much in his highlights. A good route runner and receiver.

    Not sure if the NFL is bound by any wiki page.

    If they did, it would far more accurately give is the inside assessment of the real severity of the injury.

    Very true but news agencies only care about reporting the news and reporting it 1st which is how they make their money in order to get hits to their website I would guess.

    Wiki doesn't report anything. Its an open access forum, not much different than this one. Any of us could go there right now and report that King just got a franchise tag in the Lingerie League.

    They lose him for 8 weeks if they do that. If there's a chance he can be back in 5 or 6 weeks, they won't do it.

    Best evidence is that it seems clear that he cleaned out his locker this afternoon. When asked if he signed with the Packers, he said, "How do you know that?" But he might have meant, "Where did you get that idea?" I haven't seen anything from the Packers' side yet.

    He could be signing with the Patriots for all we know with Amendola injured (AGAIN).
