    Apparently 3 teams are actively talking with the Packers about Corey Williams. Denver, New Orleans and Atlanta. Says talks are going on mostly with Atlanta and would shake out something like this:

    Our 2nd rounder and CW for Atlanta's 2nd and a pick/player.

    Man, would it be nice to get into the top 4 picks in the 2nd? And as far as the player, probably more of a depth guy.

    Why not our first rounder and CW for Atlanta's 1st rounder? IF they haven't traded it...

    I dont like the idea of trading a proven player just to go up a few spots on the first round.

    I think a multitude of picks would better suit this team over a high first rounder.

    A 2nd from Atlanta would be nice and their 3rd. I'm not aware of any players on their team that could significantly help GB, except for maybe Deangelo Hall.

    We move a player, granted a quality player, to move up from the early 60s to the early 30s...a good move. Hell, Williams is gone after this year anyway, if a long-term contract is not in the offing...which I believe is not.

    What if the player is Jerrius Norwood. I would LOVE to have him!

    Besides, if TT is pulling this trade, there is a very specific player he hopes to land, and at this point I completely trust his judgement on the talent front.

    with DeAngelo Hall making so much noise, I really can't envision Atlanta getting into any trade talks without trying to include Hall in the deal.

    I agree.

    But the Giants were interested in Hall until he was asking for 10 million. He isnt worth that here. I would like to get a quality FA CB that would help as a back up if or when Harris/Woodson gets hurt.

    Hall is a malcontent ******* who should be an automatic deal killer if they make him part of the package.

    i'm not saying we should get hall or even try to, i'm just saying that i would think that atlanta would try like hell to include him in any and every trade package they offer.

    I don't think the Falcons are dumb enough to give Norwood away...wait a tick - they gave us Brett Favre...

    Maybe there's hope after all.

    Green Bay could fleece them twice in the past 20 years.

    I doubt Corey Wiliiams would move us from number 30 to number 3.

    Highly doubt that. But McFadden would look good in Green and Gold.

    I was thinking their 2nd rounder and 3rd rounder, not the number 3 overall. Sorry, I should have clarified that.

    Williams is good, but not that good. Heh, I don't think TT would trade him if he was that good.

    I read something similiar on packerchatters today. This time of year, that site notoriously has "rumours".

    Yes, but pf.com has more (founded or unfounded) rumors and juicy gossip during offseason, which I find much more thrilling than PFT and their "sources". :pop:

    Gibril Wilson is the best S in Free Agency. He'd be a lock to start if we nabbed him.

    I really like the trade with Atlanta idea. We'd have a shot at both Rodgers-Cromartie, who had a sick workout at the combine yesterday, Keller, the TE from Purdue, or Carlson, the TE from Notre Dame. Also may be able to package our first and one of the seconds to move up (I know this is unlikely with TT at the helm, but you never know) to get Brandon Albert, who is the best guard in the draft.

    Interesting, Where is your source on this if I may ask? I know there was interest in Williams on the Redskins site, but I don't know how strongly the organization is looking for a guy like him.

    Here is the link at the chatters

    I'd take it with a grain of salt, though I do think the Pack may try to trade Corey. I'd take Denver off the list since they just got Shaun Rogers
