    Until proven otherwise, I'd equate that to getting information from this forum. What is smaller than salt?

    You actually think I would advertise to that site? :roll: I was only posting where the information came from...no different than posting to ESPN or Pro Football Talk?

    I heard Rodgers-Cromartie excelled at the combine, which is a good and bad thing. He may be gone by #30. :(

    John Clayton was just on NFL Live a few minutes ago, he said Corey Williams could be gone in a trade within the next few days. He said the Pack are looking for a 2nd round pick in return, so we'll see what happens in the next few days.

    a second round pick for our deepest position on a guy who is leaving next year anyway. would be freakin awesome.

    not as awesome as a 2nd and a 6th. but awesome

    I was a big advocate of re-signing Williams, but I wouldn't upset about receiving a Round 2 choice in exchange for him.

    PC.com and PF.com are content driven from their respective users. Without users, no content, no PC.com or PF.com.

    ESPN and PFT.com work differently and are geared differently. ESPN is 'world wide sports' and does not get its content from its users nor does PFT.com.

    Actually lately I had been leaning towards the idea of keeping Williams, try to sign him long term.

    After today, with Raiders DT Tommy Kelly getting a 7 year - 50 million (18 million guaranteed) deal, I've started to lean towards the idea of trading Williams and getting what you can for him.

    That's massive money, and I can't (and don't want to) see the Packers giving Williams anything near that amount of cash. Not at a position we are so deep at and rely on a rotation.

    With Cole reportedly getting the second round RFA tender, I can see Ted looking to actively pursue a trade for Williams. Problem is that Rogers, Jenkins, Stroud are also rumoured to be on the market, so the supply of DTs available might be greater than the demand, meaning the Packers will have to settle for a lower draft pick than they'd have originally wanted.

    Actually the ....

    ... is a front page rule on that "other" site. It was not directed towards you in anyway. I thought it funny that a link was posted to another site who warns it's users of the above.

    Does anyone know if the value of the Franchise Tag for a DT changes in light of the contract by DT Tommy Kelly?

    The value was around 6.3 million, but would that value increase in light of the new contract that Kelly got?

    Yes, it can. I also read somewhere that teams can front load the contract to increase the cap number as well to irritate other teams.

    A cut and pasted example....

    One way to use up the current year cap bulge is to use large roster bonuses in lieu of signing bonuses for any free agents that they might sign. If, for example, the Bucs were to sign cornerback Asante Samuel, they could give him a $20 million roster bonus, which would count fully against this year's cap. In turn, he would have significantly lower cap numbers in future years of the deal.

    There's another potential benefit to such a move. Because the Raiders have applied the exclusive franchise tag to cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, his one-year tender will be based on the average of the five highest-paid corners in 2008. A cap number in excess of $20 million for Samuel would force that number north by $2 million or more.

    Given that Bucs coach Jon Gruden and G.M. Bruce Allen used to work for the Raiders, we could see them getting a kick out of sticking it to their former employer in this way.

    Just because I think it's cool, I emailed Mike Florio head of PFT today and said thanks for the hard work during day one of free agency. They were writing their arses off. He actually emailed back and said thanks. Thought it was a class act all the way from a guy who was on the Jim Rome show a few hours earlier.
