    Was just cut by the Saints. Cue Rodell pining for the Packers to sign him, even though he's been over the hill for a year or two now. :)

    If rodell had it his way, harper would be signed for 10 years 120 million with a 20 mill signing bonus. BONEHEAD.

    I'd take him on a one year vet minimum deal with a little roster bonus. Morgan Burnett, who I still have a little confidence in, is not ready to be the vet of the secondary. Roman Harper could teach our guys to be physical whether he's over the hill or not, but you can't pay him hardly anything; obviously past his prime.

    Of course I don't necessarily agree with paying for presence and not for play, but if we could draft Ha Ha or Pryor and give him half or all of his rookie season to sit behind Harper and learn from the guy, I would have no problem with that. If Harper causes issues because of age, the rook gets in the starting lineup early.

    The Packers don´t need another SS, Burnett will play there next season.

    I too like Burnett a lot better at SS than FS. Any thoughts on Brooks from FL St. in the mid-rounds? I was watching some clips of the guy the other day...he flies around and doesn't seem to mind sticking his nose in it.

    I do find myself coming back to Hyde, though. FS these days coming out of college run in the low to mid-4.5s. Here's the current crop:

    Hyde's 4.52 at the Combine is in line with these guys. Smart player. Tackles well.

    I hate when ppl harp on Hydes "40" time. Hyde has football speed and plays faster then his 40. There are alot of good db's who don't run like Deion Sandcastle.

    If he continues to play he did last season I´d rather have him on the bench, but with the contract he signed last year that won´t happen.

    Brooks is a decent option, but I think the Packers should either draft a FS in the first round or get a starter via free agency and use their third and fourth round picks on other positions. The guy I´m intrigued by as a late-round pick is Marqueston Huff. That guy´s lightning fast and can hit as well, not sure he´ll play projects as a FS in the NFL though.

    And they probably were.
    They just didn't know it until they were out from Lombardi's whip.
