    Collin Cole DT
    Rob Davis LS

    Well no idea yet. Haven't even played our of the seasons games yet.

    As of right now? It also depends on the price. I'd like to see Martin, Green, Lee, Cole, Wells, Jenkins, Rayner, Herron, and R Martin all stay for a reasonable price.

    Keepers:

    Ahman Green HB - I'm not sure, but he has proved so far he still can run, so I would like to give him a 2-year contract.

    David Martin TE - He's clutch, he's a good number two TE, but we really gotta get a new #1.

    Colin Cole DT - Has some talent, the rest of the season will decide, but so far I'm positive to him.

    Rob Davis LS - YES! To have a reliable longsnapper is so important, we could lose points by not having him.

    Scott Wells - He's doing a good job in the middle, yes!

    Dave Rayner - Nice job so far, can become really good! Yes.

    Noah Herron - A serviceable backup, yes.

    Ruvell Martin - I like his size, and he hasn't been playing too bad, a good backup WR. Yes.

    Leavers:

    Kenderick Allen DT - Well, no thanks.

    Ben Taylor LB - No, he hasn't proven anything, let him go.

    Donald Lee TE - No, he's not that good and we don't really need to keep 3 TEs on the roster.

    Cullen Jenkins - No.

    Chris White - Get a more talented center to groom behind Wells, no.

    Tory Humphrey - No.

    I want to see a list of upcoming Bears defensive free agents, are any of their big names up for grabs?

    Maybe we should bring home Holliday from the Dolphins to help out our D-line'?

    this is almost as silly of a thread as the "Who are we gonna draft?" one.

    can we at least wait till the seasons over?

    I pretty much agree with Gakk here, although I think David Martin is a good #3 TE.

    i think some key guys should be signed now. if the players see a hardworker like Wells get a contract extension, it will raise morale and make people want to work harder. the packers dont have a reputation as being the most loyal franchise you know.

    It's just too early to tell, but so far:

    Wells and Rayner for sure.
    Cullen Jenkins and R. Martin depending as well as most others.

    Even though he will not be a FA, sign Nick Barnett for a very long time this year.

    Ahman Green RB, beacuse of his outstading performance last sunday, and because he is a great player

    David Martin TE, He is clutch

    Scott Wells C, He is the leader of our young offensive line

    Dave Rayner K, Good season so far

    Noah Herron RB, One of my personal favourites on the team

    Ruvell Martin WR, We're quite short on WR's

    I would prefer and upgrade over Herron. I just don't like him very much and would like either a 3rd down back or a power back.

    If it were me, as of right now I would target:

    Wells - Young, improving center.
    Martin - Little TE depth and Bubba slipping
    Green - Little RB depth, team friendly deal
    Rayner - See how he performs in cold weather but so far so good
    Jenkins/Cole - I like having depth on DL and 1 or both would be nice.

    The good thing is none of these guys should break the bank and GB should be able to retain whomever they desire and still have room to redo someone who may be FA next year and/or to explore a more active stnace with other FA's.
