    Damn, that would have been a win-win situation, even if it was a bit more expensive. Oh well, time to move on.

    Would have been nice though.

    Check out this comment about Gray:

    Maybe that's why he didn't come to Green Bay. Maybe Thompson didn't like his attitude?

    I still don't know who he is, so this doesn't bother me much.

    I don't think he is the guy we wanted anyway.
    We need a tested veteran that can help coach Rodgers and be a sounding board as well as a backup.
    Gray certainly didn't fit that bill.

    heh heh, as do I!! I must admit though, considering the circumstances, he played pretty well this year. There has to be something up with him though.

    A.) The Jaguars released him. He seemed to be a solid back up to Garradd (sp?) without changing the offense much.

    B.) He might not have been that interested in coming to Green Bay, where he would seemingly have a chance at some significant playing time if Rodger's gets injured and he would be stepping into an extremely talented team.

    C.) He only signed a cheap one year deal on a team that now has three decent quarterbacks--essentially he's going to have to compete to even be a #2.

    Thinking about it, I'm glad he didn't come here. Thanks again TT!

    The only thing that bothers me is that John McClain is a reporter now. He was such a good cop...

    If there is anything to the "Cancer" deal, I'm glad we didn't pick him up.

    Did Green Bay Packer Packers offer QB Quinn Gray a contract? I don't think, I saw or heard a report in the Green Bay media that Packers' GM Ted Thompson offered him a contract.

    Green Bay Packers might have a good solid report that Gray was a problem in Jacksonville Jacquars locker room , not just as reporter's thoughts on Quinn.. I think the Packers had Quinn Gray in Green Bay for a work out, which could have been unsatisfactory. I think , Gray signing a 1 year contract for $635,000 and a $40,000 reportmg bonus with Houston Texans answered the question did the Packers really want Quinn Gray.? To me that means a resounding -NO!!The Packers have lots of salary cap money. That Contract Gray signed with the Houston Texans is just about NFL Veteran minimum NFL contract . If the Packers wanted him, that kind of money is no problem for the Packers.

    Hammer posted "draft a backup QB".

    A rookie Quarterback in the NFL coming to Packers would be a developmental QB. (3rd String)
    not a back up (2nd string) to this first year starter Packer QB Aaron Rodgers. The Packers need an experienced NFL QB. to back up QB Aaron Rodgers

    I think you are right on the money here. Green Bay obviously has the resources to sign a guy like Gray, but TT won't overspend for a guy and if this locker room cancer stuff is true, he probably brought him in to determine if he was Packer People or not. Obviously, we know the answer to that.

    I was never sold on the guy anyway. I don't think Rodgers could have learned a whole lot from him. I think that's what TT and MM are looking for most, a guy who will teach Rodgers the ropes and talk to him on the sidelines when things aren't going his way. A vet who has got a bit of gas in the tank in case something catastrophic happens, but mostly is a "Yoda" type player. "Do or do not throw a completion, there is no try."

    You won't get that with a rookie.
