    What do you all think? Would he be a reasonable acquisition for the Packers? I think so. Granted he is 31 and doesn't do a whole lot for us long term I think he still has a lot of value. He would bring a veteran presence and take care of one of the CB spots. If the Pack choose to draft another CB he would be a good mentor as well.

    Having LeRoy Butler as a coach and Sam Madison as a player would benefit the Packers very much.

    I hope TT will spend a little money on decent FAs this year.

    I think if we pick up Sam Madison and Darren Howard (DE from NO) and draft a guy like A.J. Hawk, then draft for depth we'll be set for next season. It might be worthwhile to pick up a veteran FA 2nd or 3rd WR in case we have the same injury problem.

    I'd also like to see a new OC, but that's another discussion. ;)

    I don't think TT wants to spend money on old guys in the FA.

    Maybe, but it wouldn't hurt to bring in 1 or 2.

    Howard? No thanks. Bad things happen when we look to NO for DL help.

    Grady was all right - even this season.

    Joe Johnson was a Saint before we signed him. He didn't pan out only because the the injury. I think we should have tried him out for another year.
