    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.

    Hard to believe that the Lions or Packers would trade in their own division.

    They have said the Lions have been talking about trading him already. It makes the most sense he is young and fits or ZBS I want him for the right price, I rather trade for him then Moss

    I say trade for anyone other than Moss:) I just don't see the good that Moss would bring. Bell is not an every down back. I would rather see Henry for a year or two with us drafting a rookie to groom for 09?

    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.

    Pro Football Talk isn't a reliable source. I've seen a few mistakes made in the past 72 hours by them that leads me to believe they aren't an inside source or they don't have reliable sources.

    However with that said Len Pasquarelli of ESPN reported on the radio that the Packers probably didn't expect Green to sign somewhere else or get this much money. He didn't report anything on the Packers panicking or seeming desperate but he did say they're probably a little surprised Green left Green Bay. He then said they're likely going to pursue a veteran RB to replace Green for this year.

    Unless you’re an ESPN Insider you won’t have access to this pod cast. If you do then go check it out.

    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?

    Time to panic. We do not have a starting RB. Sign Corey Dillon for a year or two then draft two RB. What we have on the roster now are rejects from other teams. Hell, sign Tony Fisher and Najeh.

    I am not worried. RB is the easiest position to fill on the roster, and a rookie can easily step in and perform at a high level....examples are endless.

    Remember that "reject from another team" Ahman Green? Woked out pretty well, didn't it?

    Any sleepers coming out of Arkansas schools this year, pax? You hit on Corey Williams pretty well a few years back.

    On the topic of Tatum Bell, I'll just say it'd make me sick to see this guy become a Packer. I get every single Denver Broncos game where I live, so I've seen him play. He's nothing special, and thinks he deserves more respect than he actually does. He's pretty much a turd, and I'd hate to see the Pack give up anything for this guy.
