    The Green Bay Packers and receiver Carlyle Holiday have agreed to terms, according to the team's Web site.


    Holiday, a two-year veteran out of Notre Dame, is the last of the Packers' four exclusive-rights free agents to re-sign with the team. Terms were not available.

    Holiday had nine receptions for 126 yards in four games for the Packers last season after being claimed off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals. He is expected to compete for a reserve role this season.


    Yippity do dah, after hearing the news that the Packers are not going after Turner, this news is even more thrilling.

    It's like ordering steak and getting a slice of Bologna. More of the same

    What's so bad about Carlyle Holiday? I mean I get the Turner disappointment but don't take anything away from Holiday at least yet or use him signing terms just so you can make your frustration clear. He did look encouraging against the Bears to close out the season. If nothing else it'd be nice to keep 5 or 6 receivers on the roster instead of 4.

    I think Holiday gives us a Randel-El type player, one who is fast but can also expand the playbook with trick plays.

    Definitely showed promise in the finale against the Bears, and what is most encouraging is that he is a converted QB (if I'm not mistaken), so he is bound to improve at the position.

    I think he might have potential from what he has shown, but he is obviously still developing.

    He has been compared to Arnaz Battle.

    Jeez, can't we even announce a player signing on this board without putting a negative spin on it? Some of you people kill me. I share your disappointment with the lack of free agent signings, but please save it for another thread. Holliday deserved to be resigned.

    I don't see the purpose in this thread because if TT DID sign Turner you wouldn't have anything positive to say about it anyways.

    It's seriously to bad that your HATE for Ted Thompson is so much greater than your love of the GREEN BAY PACKERS.

    And if you come back with that as not true I can say with great faith you have FOOLED THE HELL out of about 400 posters on this site.

    Look at what the Titans are doing this week, they are bringing in guys and I am willing to bet, are looking to see what they have available to them. I would be surprised if they sign them before draft day. I will explain the same logic that I think we are using, although we aren't bringing guys in right now.

    Why sign anyone or make a trade for Turner until at least the first two rounds of the draft take place. We have no idea, especially this year how the draft is going to shake out. What if the RB darling Peterson starts sliding, if we make the deal for Turner we tie our hands in making a deal to grab AP. Point is it makes very little sense to pull the tigger on a trade this close to the draft without waiting for the draft to unfold.

    I am not defending Ted here, because I am concerned that he isn't bringing guys in to at least take a look at his options to "PLAN" for any post draft moves. But to me, we have waited through the intial stages of FA, why not allow a couple more weeks to pass and let at least day one of the draft to unfold, see what picks are falling to us and then make a decision if we want to pull the trigger on a deal for someone like a Turner.

    My two bits... for whatever it is worth.

    PS - Holiday will make this team, just a feeling.

    And just cuz it isnt announced means no one is coming in?

    I.E. last year Lavar Arrington, no one knew ( media) seemed to know he was in Green Bay until he was about to leave

    not trying to knock on your post, but my point is it happens all the time

    LOL... Yep, everything is 007 with the Green Bay Packers... I didn't rip nor defend, I stated that I am concerned. I could say something like prove that we have brought people in, but it is pointless.

    You cannot post a single thing on this board at all without upsetting the left or the right Ted people. Have fun running around in a circle.

    Well at this point of the year, the agents for the players themselves need to generate as most activity for their clients as possible, so why wouldn't the agent throw the press a bone if their player is visiting. But anyway...

    This reminds me of the chicken and the egg question...

    And I am not singling you out Longtime, I am growing tired of the battle, let each have their opinion wether to "hate" the job TT is doing or not. But don't build the threads around the premise to defend or bash, hell none of us know **** from shinola right now other than our opinion.

    I mean look at this thread, we have posts that do nothing but point out the vibe from Pyles post.... you know how he feels... so accept it... move on.. and post something that has to do with the Packers... not how one feels towards the Ted. There is a thread in the Smack area for that!

    We have not made a lot of moves which is the very reason we can be the frontrunner of any deal out there that makes sense.

    I highly doubt the Titans will pay the sticker price and unless SD gets that they are better off waiting until draft day with RB being a weak position this year.

    It looks like it's going to be a WILD draft this year.

    They both turned in tough catches. Holiday did especially well reaching back and snagging passes that were behind him.

    Try to follow along chief. Quit stating what I think or what I WOULD do. Go find me where I said bringing in Turner would be bad. In fact, I stated it would be a good move but I guess you would rather go around putting words in my mouth.I'm tired of people stating false **** and trying to pass it off as truth.

    Secondly, you are like a stand-up comedian who's been using the same material for years. "You are not a Packers fan" in every other post gets annoying. I don't know how many times you can use the same regurgitated, worn-out material.

    Lastly, I respect certain people here, and you are not one of them so your little attempt at attacking me because you are incapable of debating football, means little. I care what certain posters have to say, and the "defend Ted at all cost" crowd is not one of them. I'm glad you need to piggyback the "400 other posters" for validation but I have a spine and don't need people to agree with me. Pathetic, simply pathetic

    If you wait to make a trade for Turner and two rounds of the draft are in the books....he isnt going anywhere. Id think there is no way AJ Smith is going to take less than a first so certainly less than a 2nd rounder is out of the question.

    Turner visits the Bills tomorrow and the Titans and Chargers have had discusions. Im sure there are ideas on what they would want for him and maybe nothing happens till draft day but Turner is worth a first and id rather have him over Lynch and maybe even Peterson who will get beat up like Chris Brown with his upright running style.
