It is being talked about on profootballtalk.com that the Packers are looking to swing a trade with the Motor City Kitties for Tatum Bell.
As they scramble to attempt to fill the void left by the sudden departure of mainstay running back Ahman Green to the Texans, we're told that the Packers have contacted the Lions about a possible trade for running back Tatum Bell.
Bell was acquired by the Lions last week as part of the Dre' Bly deal. As we've reported, both Bell and former Broncos tackle George Foster are candidates to be traded again.
We're also told that the Packers contacted the Bears about the availability of running back Thomas Jones, but the Bears said that he is not available. It remains to be seen whether the Bears would be willing to trade him to a team other than their intra-division arch-rivals.
Detroit's willingness to shop Bell doesn't mean that the team is looking to shed tailbacks. We're told that running back T.J. Duckett currently is in the building, and that the Lions are expected to try to get him signed.
all about da packers said:The story at pf.com seems to make out TT as now panicing to replace Green.
If that is the case, and there is no evidence to confirm it is, that would mean (at least to me) that TT didn't have an adequate back up plan to replace Green.
If that turns out to be true, TT is a moron who dropped the ball big time.
However, I expect TT to have had backup plans that he will now begin to explore, and I believe they may have looked into the asking price of Bell. I expect TT to turn a few more stones before we get our RB though.
He got rid of Green? Green was OVERPAID by a team that listened to Mike Sherman....continuing his success filled blueprint of overpaying "his guys".
Hell, Ahman said he got more than he expected......now, THAT is overpaying, when the player is suprised by the number.
Yeah, TT "got rid" of Green. What color is the sky in your world?
