Yep, sounds about right... Jenkins indicates he could be done for the year...

    Unless we can get some kind of discount for him, I think he gets traded. No point in re-signing a guy to a huge contract who can't stay on the field, especially when we have Jolly and Mike Neal coming back next season.

    He's a pretty good talent to have, but it seems like he misses an awful lot of time.

    Neither Neal nor Jolly have an ounce of Jenkins' talent, so far.

    Jenkins is just such a beast both against the run and against the pass. He's a really rare player, like Richard Seymour and Darnell Dockett.

    IMHO we re-sign Jenkins before we do Bishop and Hawk.

    Jolly's had the year off. I wouldn't want to count on him for anything yet.

    Jenkins and Bishop need to be priorities!

    If Jenkins gets placed on IR, does that make him ineligible for the pro bowl? I was thinking... if he gets a pro bowl selection, THEN he'll want even bigger money...

    Jenkins won't make the Pro Bowl because he just doesn't get the respect that he deserves.
    He's also had injury problems in 3 of the last 4 seasons, and now he's 30 or gonna be.
    Even his brother Kris keeps getting hurt.

    I think this latest injury, and he was untouched, will cost him a few million, and helps our chances to keep him.

    Hawk will not make anywhere close to $10 million next season.
    This past off-season, he was unwilling to take a paycut.

    His tune might change next off-season, but here's what gives him a lot of leverage:
    His availability.

    Nick Barnett keeps getting hurt. Jones gets hurt. Zombo gets hurt. Poppinga is done.
    Meanwhile, Hawk keeps suiting up and doing his job pretty well.

    Yeah, as much as I want to say $10M to Hawk is crazy, when you actually look at the guys production this year, he's been playing at a very high level. yeah, he's not a pass rushing demon like Matthews, but he plays the run really well, and even seems to do better in pass coverage now. Still don't think he's worth $10M, but that's something for MM and TT to worry about.

    Cullen Jenkins is a big time talent and should be a signing priority. His weakness, if any, is that he gets injured doing his job. Better to have a man play hard and sacrifice himself than keep one around who plays soft.

    Isn't Jolly going to be a FA? I don't know if the Packers resign him with those kind of character flaws anyway.
    I agree Neal is going to be a player. Good draft pick which alot of people criticized.

    I've been watching Hawk like a hawk. He's played about a just above average pace so far. I know alot of us were hoping for a killer linebacker but he's certainly steady. Always on the job, makes a play here or there but never hurting you.
    But 10 million? He'll take a pay cut because he knows he's not that kind of money player. If not, we have Bishop who's played much better than I expected. We all love him in preseason, maybe the reps he's getting now gets him to Hawk's play.
    I'd love to see them sign Jenkins to a long term deal, but he does get injured and you have to find the time for the younger guys. I know injuries are something that can happen to anybody, but once you have them, they tend to reoccur, I don't think Mike Neal has an injury history. It's just MHO.

    packers should get a deal done with Hawk just after the season that extends his contract and that reduces his pay next year while giving him a decent signing bonus. At the start of the season I didnt think we would keep him but now I could see us holding on to him for 3 more years.

    Having a semi-healthy Cullen Jenkins against CHICAGO would be big...I think CM3's production slowing down is a direct effect of Cullen not being healthy
