    From good 'ol PFT.com














    This has me shocked. I can't see this happening. UNLESS! Brett informed Ted/Packers that he'd committ to TWO years if we had Moss. But I dunno. I'm kind of shellchocked on this.

    Well.....there again.....it's just a RUMOR! Take it all with a grain or two of salt.
    I don't put much stock into any of this, until i see it from a REAL source.
    These rumor mills will just keep churning out stuff. And no one remembers the ones that turn out to be bogus. The only ones remembered are the 1 out of 500 that happen by chance to come true.

    I could see this I guess maybe Mike and Ted don't think Rodgers isnt the right man or he isnt good enough. Or like someone said that they think Brett will be back longer because of Moss. Or they think they can draft a better QB in this year or next years draft so trade Rodgers

    Seems suspect to me being we do not have a back up for Brett, or, if it were to happen, someone to at least try and turn the keys over to later.

    Oakland knows they will not get first round material for Moss at this point anyhow. Especially when you tack on his salary. Woofta! I still say he will have to be willing to redo his contract or it's too risky at his age and recent production.

    I heard earlier where A. Thomas looked to be heading to San Fran so if we're going large it might as well be here. Just not quite $9 mill large.

    This rumor makes a weird kind of sense. But I hope it does not come true. Moss is a jackass, and I don't think he would make the team much better. I don't think he's worth picking up at all, and especially not at the expense of a young first-round QB.

    Wow, another stupid rumor.
    Brett Favre, KGB, Ferguson, Clifton and a conditional 5th for Moss or if it is Aaron Rodgers instead of Brett Favre it is a conditional 3rd round pick.

    Part of the deal is Moss has to have at least a dozen boot lickers on hand at all times.

    Yeah, you can't really put a whole lot of stock into PFT.com I just found it interesting.

    This snipit also is saying they want a QB in return for Moss which goes along with the latest snipit from PFT.com about Moss. Moss for Rodgers.

    Regardless, I just found it amusing. I don't know if I think it's a good idea to trade Rodgers for Moss. If we thought Ingle Martin could be the 'QB' of the future, ok. But we've seen less of Martin than Rodgers. ... is that a good thing?

    :twocents: First of all both TT and MM think quite highly of Rodgers. Second of all the Pack has really got a nice bunch of receivers to develop which is TT's most important stance. Third there's a very good liklihood GB will be able to snag at least one if not more good looking receivers in the draft. And fourth if Robinson makes it back GB will have the receivers they need.

    Do they think highly of him? Wasn't it just 2 years ago that MM was the niner's OC and they passed on Rodgers to take Smith? They could get Moss and then pick up Harrington for a backup after Miami lets him go. :rotflmao: or Brooks is available now -- we know how well Brooks and Moss work together. :rotflmao:


    OR -- in another thread, it was mentioned that Barnett wanted to play in CA if he could not get the contract worked out. Why not package Barnett and Manuel for Moss and Porter and then draft for the defense.

    (is there a smiley for when I am being sarcastic?)

    I doubt Green Bay would give up on Rodgers for Moss. I wouldn't be against it as a fan but I just don't see that happening.

    Also Moss to Jacksonville doesn't make much sense. Moss was very outspoken against Mike Tice in Minnesota and pretty much said he was not the coach for that team. That would create for an awkward situation.

    The point that I would like to make is this.... The rumors of Moss to the Packers, like the billboard hits from the 70's.... "Just Keep On Coming!"

    Rodgers for Moss sounds a little crazy... But who knows. The point is this, the rumors just keep on coming. Where there is smoke......

    The Raiders would never do this because it's a 3 quarters on the dollar trade. Trading Moss away for Aaron Rodgers would be unforgivable to me if I were a Raider fan.

    If this is true, maybe Rodgers wouldnt mind going back to California since hes from there. I kind of hope its true, because maybe then Brett has confirmed he is going to play more then this year that would be great IMO...and having MOss isnt such a bad idea...

    okay look at this..

    I looked at the KNBR web site, but here at work wont load cuz cant install flash player


    source


    KNBR is reporting that the Raiders and Packers have reached a tentative agreement on compensation for Randy Moss. But the entire thing is contingent upon Moss (and his agent) ability or willingness to restructure his current contract into something the Packers are more comfortable with and can absorb.

    The particulars of the deal weren't discussed, but it has been rumoured that the Raiders would get a 2nd round pick in 2007 and an additional pick in 2008.

    I think this is as good as it gets in terms of getting Randy outta here. I say take the deal and help the Packers negotiate if you need to.

    I don't believe that report one bit, sounds like someone making up a rumor. I saw another one on a raiderboard saying Randy and our second for Rodgers and your first. I would take them all as they are for now, rumors, but I there does seem to be a little bit of smoke here.

    If I hear anything from the Raiders side I let you guys know.

    Now there are rumors of the Packers giving up TWO(2) picks to get Moss. TT would have to totally abandon his practice of years just to get a high-priced malcontent with fast dropping numbers. Sound logical? Not to me. This is a great year for drafting WRs. That's the way to go.

    Don't worry yourself too much. There is some smoke but a lot of things have to fall into place. If its 2 picks no way one is a #1. Maybe a 2 and a 3. I think Rodgers + a pick sounds more likely if anything.
