    Adam Schefter says GB interested as per kffl.com

    Perfect fit. Marshawn and Droughns and Morency in Zone Blocking with Moss + Favre = The Brett Favre SHow...game over nfc.

    EDITED by AADP - Not relevant to the original thread topic.

    He is getting up there in age, but might have something left in him.

    Might be worth a look (I trust TT to look into many different avenues including this one for RB).

    ACTUALLY, ADAM SCHEFTER SAID, AND I QUOTE, "IT WOULDN'T SURPRISE ME TO SEE A TEAM LIKE GREEN BAY GO AFTER DROUGHNS".

    That means this is nothing more than conjecture on Schefter's part, and there is no evidence to suggest the Packers will target Droughnes.

    A seven-year veteran, Droughns, 28, came to the Browns from Denver in a 2005 trade, after rushing for 1,240 yards in 2004. He gained 1,232 yards in 2005, his first year in Cleveland, and the Browns rewarded him with a three-year contract extension worth $12 million. But Droughns slumped to 758 yards in 2006 and there have been some off-field problems in the past year.

    He worked well in Denver's zone blocking scheme, so he's definitely worth a look.

    Hes definitely a One cut runner, he mite contrast well with a more playmaking RB in tandem.

    Droughns, if healthy, is a pretty good back that can provide a year or two of decent service and allow us more flexibility to choose, or trade up/down, with the 16th pick. My gut says we take one of the WRs (Bowe or Meacham) in round 1, provided Lynch is gone to Buffalo which I am assuming at this time, and possibly TE in round 2 in the form of Zach Miller. After that, I see CB/S, O tackle to groom, and then BPA.

    Griffith, if/when he signs, will be a huge pick up for this team for years to come.

    i wouldn't be entirely unhappy with a cheap contract for about two years. something along the lines of what we offered green... about 2 mil per.

    Tim Carter is kinda blah. I live in the New York area, and saw quite a bit of him. He is blazing fast with bad hands and is so soft he could get knocked out in a pillow fight. I think the Pack is best served drafting a RB anyway, Droughns isn't anything great, whereas Marshawn Lynch may be a franchise back.

    Cuban, I think Ferggy offers much more value than what he brings to the field.

    He has a good attitude, and more importantly a terrific work ethic. The improvement he made from his rookie season to his senior year, from what I have read, is extraordinary.

    With some of the young players that have great talent coming in, having a person like Ferggy guide them in terms of work ethic can't be bad at all.
