    Wow that's some big props. I have to say the Ryan Grant pickup has worked out well. Think the Giants would like maybe a little more than a 6th knowing what he's capable of. :pop:

    Thompson picked up a new and better Ahman Green?

    I like Grant, he runs hard, hits the holes, has good vision, adequate speed and finishes the runs. He's just a plain simple good ol' back without the fancy dancing around stuff.

    Am I correct in thinking Grant is a RFA this off-season?

    I don't believe so. I read an article on up coming players to be RFA's and UFA's and I didn't' see his name. It was from Pro Football Weekly.

    Thanks porky, I read in an article online somewhere yesterday that mentioned Grant being a RFA at the end of the season. Took me by surprise, since I hadn't heard that before.

    What a find, what a surprise Grant has been. Yesterday he proved he could be a workhorse, which is probably what we'll need him to be during the playoff games at Lambeau.

    Things are looking great for our future at RB. Grant has emerged, and Wynn was looking solid before getting injured yet again. Those two should make a great RB duo next year.

    I am 99.99 % sure that Grant will be an 'Exclusive Rights Free Agent'.. meaning.. Such a player has no more than two accrued seasons in the NFL and may only sign with his prior team, provided, of course, that the team extends a minimum qualifying offer to the player.

    So the Packers could use a one year deal to allow them more time to make sure that Grant is the real deal... then either tender him as a Restricted FA or lock him up to a long term deal... So the probablity is high that Grant will be in Green Bay for a number of year if we so choose.

    That's what I'm thinking. If Wynn stays healthy, Grant + Wynn = a monster 1-2 punch, probably 2nd best RB duo on the NFL (after the Vikes, and yes, better than Dallas).

    And wasn't Noah Herron pretty awesome before he was sidelined with injury?

    So what is the hype? I don't get it. He's good, period. No hype required.

    I say we lock him up in a long-term deal now for cheap.

    Herron is an above average blocker and receiver.

    He is not a great runner though.

    He should challenge Jackson for our third down back spot next year.

    Says Exclusive Rights Free Agent


    Such a player has no more than two accrued seasons in the NFL and may only sign with his prior team, provided, of course, that the team extends a minimum qualifying offer to the player.

    also Vernon Morency is a RFA
