I thought it would be appropriate to have a thread just for this so everyone can post up rumors they read.

Ill kick it off with arrigos daily read.

The Packers are working on a deal with FB Justin Griffith and it looks like he will be a Packer by Monday morning. I was told Griffith REALLY liked the facilities and thinks he can help the Packers do some good things.

The Packers would indeed have interest in Ruben Droughns when he gets released by the Browns later in the week.

Look for the Packers to address their running back and tight end issues in the draft. They don't have to much interest in Jeremy Stephens and feel this they can get a solid tight end during the draft. A player that people should keep an eye on is Ben Patrick out of Delaware.

The Packers are trying to get RB Dominic Rhodes in for a visit from what I learned.

I was told by a good source that the Packers front office is indeed looking to trade up for a running back, and feel they have a good shot in doing so, but if not look for a play maker to be taken at the #16 spot that would have an impact right away in some capacity.

Tory James was in Green Bay yesterday and may be the Packers nickle back next season because things went well. He would upgrade a secondary that has two of the best man on man CB's in Al Harris and Charles Woodson.

The Packers have not the Seahawks about Darrell Jackson, and I have been told, don't plan to.

Still no movement on the Randy Moss trade front between the Raiders, Packers and Jags (the ONLY 3 teams that are seriously considering a move.

I was told the Packers may be considering a deal that would land them BOTH the Patriots 1st round picks, by swapping the #16 pick with them.

There are a few Safety's the Packers really like LSU's LaRon Landry, Reggie Nelson, Jason Wendling, Eric Weddle, Sabby Piscitelli and Tanard Jackson (who can also play CB).

I wouldn't be totally opposed to the trade of our 1st rounder for both of NE's 1st rounders. We would get the better value out of that deal, of course it would most likely cost us Lynch or Landry but we could still address safety and TE in the 1st and then maybe get a 2nd round RB (though none really stand out to me). GB would have to give up their 1st & 2nd for NE's two 1st rounders and their 6th rounder to make the trade even. But then again the team moving up generally takes the hit when it comes to value. Honestly I'd rather they stay put and take Lynch or Landry, but if they both are gone then I'd take the trade.

I would have no problem at all with the Pack trading down for BOTH of New England's 1st rounders...we could potentially pick up 2 immediate starters right off the bat with the depth in this draft.

Why would he come to Green Bay for less money? Yes the Raiders aren't a very good team, but the Packers aren't the Superbowl contendors that some of you are making them out to be.

Not to mention that Green Bay has difficulty drawing people to an area where there is little to do. I personally love the Midwest, but I'm not a big baller either.

I have no clue as to why he would play here for less, it seems illogical to me. Here's what I wrote in the Griffith thread:


How do you know TT didn't offer him more than Oakland? Maybe he just didn't want to be in GB. I hate that everybody just always assumes that TT low balled them. I'm sorry but GB just isn't that big of a draw, if I could live there or in California I'd def choose Cali if the monies are pretty similar. TT proved last year that he'll pay players by offering Woodson and Arrington both huge contracts. Arrington chose to play for less just so he could be in NY.

Speaking of Arrington I wouldnt mind taking him as a situational player.

In response to the record thing. You can thank Sherman for that with all his overpriced free agent signings and cap space mess that TT had to clean up before he could start building a wnning team again. I know this isn't the thread to get into it but since you brought it up. If Sherman wouldn't have signed guys like Hunt and Johnson and made the worst draft picks in Packer history other than Mandrich, TT might've been able to keep those OL's that everyone gives him so much crap for letting go. Sherman was riding his predecessors team to good records while he was managing the future of the team into a downward spiral. TT has cleaned that up and in a short two years got the Pack back to being competitive.

Sorry about being off-toic so thats all I'll say regarding the issue in this theread.

The way GB feels about football though is incomparable to any other city and players here are all people care about. Living in So. Cal can be nice but it isn't the same when it comes to football

Julius Jones has been rumored as a player to be traded. GB and BUF seem to be likely destinations.

I wouldnt mind giving up a 3rd rounder for him. Although I'd rather deal our 3rd rounder for moss.

I really don't see TT trading picks for anyone other than Moss. Also, I really don't consider Julius Jones a special player and think that the draft will fill our need at RB.

Moss would certainly be better value for a 3rd rounder but the draft will most likely be our solution for RB

"Alot of what I am being told is the Packers will upgrade the offense in this draft and look to add AT LEAST 2 play makers in that side of the ball. The hot names I hear right now are Adrian Peterson, Ted Ginn, Marshawn Lynch, Robert Meachem, Greg Olsen, Sidney Rice, Dwayne Jarrett, Craig "Buster" Davis, Dwayne Bowe, Antonio Pittman and Dwayne Wright.

With the Browns adding Jamal Lewis and the Texans adding Ahman Green, the teams in "need" of a RB in the top 10 picks are decreasing. So that led the Packers and Redskins to start talking about a deal that would send the #16 pick, a 2nd round pick this year, and either a 2 next year or a 4 this year for the #6 pick in the draft IF Adrian Peterson is available.

Justin Griifith had a REALLY decent offer from the Packers on the table, but Oakland made a bigger offer and he took it.

A source told me that Green Bay like Lynch, but they see him "tip toeing" through holes sometimes and question whether he can take the NFL pounding. He has split time with JJ Arrington and Justin Forsett the past 3 years and still has some nagging injury questions.

I was also told that if a deal cann't get done to move up and Ted Ginn was available, the Packers would be hard pressed not to take him. He fills 3 needs for them (deep threat, return specialist and play maker) and most of their scouts view him as a "Steve Smith" type down the road.

Brett Favre is ahead of schedule in his recovery from ankle surgery.

The Packers have talked to Detroit about Tatum Bell, and the Cowboys about Julius Jones, but I was told it is unlikely they will bring in a RB before the draft.

One of the reasons why Dauntè Stallworth signed w/ New England was his deal (6 yrs 33 mill) is really a 1 year deal. IF he shows he can stay healthy and have an impact, the Pats will kick in a $6 mill roster bonus and make the rest of the deal "active".

The Buccaneers have called (again) inquiring about Randy Moss, who is STILL on the block.

I wouldn't be surprised if the 49ers take Adam Carriker with the 11th overall pick. I was told they have ALOT of interest in him as well as Patrick Willis.

The Lions may be really considering drafting Brady Quinn. His stock is on the rise again and the Lions need a QB for the future.

LaRon Landry's name has been mentioned w/ the Texans, Falcons, Cardinals, 49ers and St. Louis.

I was told the Rams REALLY like Reggie Nelson, and Patrick Willis.

The Vikings have expressed alot of interest in Jamaal Anderson, Leon Hall and Brady Quinn.

The Falcons have expressed some interest in Landry, Okoye, Branch, Hall, Jarrett, Meachem and Nelson.

I was told the NFL is expected to suspend Pac Man Jones, no word on the length of the suspension.

The Vikings are considering bringing in Ian Scott, Cato June and Nick Harper.

Keely Washington should be signing w/ the Dolphins some time this week since the Pats signed Stallworth, Washington is running out of options and the 'Phins really like him."

Arrigo isn't goint to be posting on the sidelines as much anymore because he's interviewing on some radio job he said. He posts as a memeber on another forum I am a member of and he said HE THINKS there is a 75% chance that moss will be in GB before the draft. Also the deal could be rumored to include KGB or corey williams and 1 of our picks for Moss, a pick, or a player ( Jordan maybe). Take it's for what it's worth comming from that source.

MOSS DEAL HINGING ON CONDITIONAL PICK

There's a hitch that has emerged in the ongoing negotiations between the Packers and the Raiders regarding the terms of a potential trade of receiver Randy Moss to Green Bay.

We're told that the Raiders will only take quarterback Aaron Rodgers if there's also a conditional draft pick based on Rodgers' performance in 2007.

In short, if Rodgers doesn't perform, the Packers have to give up more in 2008.

The Packers' concern is that, because the Raiders have been so bad of late on offense, it's a given that Rodgers won't play well in 2007. Moreover, the Packers are concerned that the Raiders will bench Rodgers at some point during the season in order to ensure that a higher pick will come their way from Green Bay in 2008.

To resolve this potential impasse, we're told that the Packers are considering offering a 2009 conditional pick based on Rodgers' play in 2007 and 2008.

As we see it, the conditional pick should also be tied to the performance of Moss. The more he does in 2007, the more the Raiders get in 2008.

Really, the trade is about Moss, not Rodgers. And if Moss plays at Lambeau Field like he performed there while a member of the Vikings, the Packers should be happy to eventually give up a first-day pick in 2008.




Forget all the other news you have heard, it is mostly speculation. I received an E-mail late last night but couldn't open it because of computer problems. After opening it a few minutes ago, here is the latest news on the Moss situation.

Any of the negative fan reaction about a Moss deal isn't affecting Thompson and it shouldn't. His job is to do what he sees fit to put the best team on the field. The Packers want him if the price is reasonable. It appears the Packers have made a legit offer, two in fact. I don't get into many rumors because no one hears enough ACCURATE information to post on a regular basis. Most rumors should in fact be called speculation, because that's what they are.

I won't say this information is 100% accurate because I didn't hear it from Thompson but the guy I have always called number one has been very reliable and I put his information in that 85%-90% accurate category.

For Moss

1 - KGB and a 4th

2 - KGB a 5th/07 & 5th/08


The Raiders want a 3rd/07 & 4th/08 or KGB and a 3rd/08 or a 2nd/07 & 5th/08


If the Packers want him bad enough it would seem a deal could be worked out. The Packers really want KGB to be part of any deal. Number one thinks a deal will get done unless another team like Jacksonville enters the bidding.

CHIEFS SHOPPING L.J.

A day after reporting that Chiefs running back Larry Johnson doesn't appear to be on the trading block, Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Chiefs are indeed shopping the four-year pro.

Per Schefter, the Chiefs have spoken with the Browns, Packers, Titans, Bills and possibly others. To date, the Chiefs haven't gotten close to a deal.

A Chiefs official told Schefter that the team hasn't engaged in "specific" trade talks, but Schefter properly (we believe) discounts the claim as a product of semantics. The Chiefs can't afford to have the quietly temperamental Johnson go T.O. on the team, so any trade effort must be done discreetly.

The biggest impediment to getting a deal done, as Schefter explains, is the money it would take to sign Johnson to a long-term deal. Schefter says that Johnson wants a deal worth more than the eight-year, $60 million package received by Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson two years ago.

In our view, too much has to happen too quickly for a trade to happen before the draft. And given the prevailing thought in league circles that running backs are largely interchangeable, a team in need would be better off making a play for L.T.'s backup, Michael Turner.

Yamon Figurs...I would love it if TT drafted him late in the draft. I'm sorry but I really don't think Robinson is that good at returning kicks. I truly believe he was a product of the system over in Minnesota. If you look at his averages in the 4 games he played with the Pack, he wouldn't even rank in the top 30 in the league. Granted it was just 4 games, but he only had ONE good year. I just don't see how one year makes you a proven returner.
If you look around the league, I just can't see teams changing their game plans because Robinson was back there. He's not a threat like others are. I would like them to address the problem and not rely on Koren.
So even if they draft a WR to do this, I think it's necessary. Especially if you can get someone that is a threat anytime they touch the ball. Figurs could be that guy. If your defense can get you any stops and you have a strong return game, you don't need that home run playmaker on offense. You just have to be consistant, which is what I think the Packers can be....because in all honesty, they don't have any big time playmakers.

Update: Several NFL sources confirmed Tuesday that Johnson is on the trading block, NFL.com reports.

Recommendation: The Chiefs have spoken with the Browns, Packers, Titans and Bills about a trade involving Johnson. Trading the 27-year-old runner will prove difficult, as Johnson is entering the final year of his contract and seeking a lucrative new deal. The Chiefs appear poised to select a running back on the first day of the draft regardless of Johnson's status on draft day, bringing in four high-profile runners for visits last week. Any deal involving Johnson still remains unlikely, but it is clear that Kansas City is gauging his value around the league.

You think TT would give up the #16 pick? Because I know the Chiefs are definitley valuing him at first round value, if Michael Turner has such a rediculous asking price.

Larry would be a huge hit on the cap after this year, he's been worked quite a bit so his tires are worn out a bit, he's 27, and according to some he isn't the best of teammates

Drafting a young back means the money is fairly cheap compared to LJ, he has fresh new tires, and more than likely their great locker room people

Moses
04-25-2007, 05:16 PM

Mwkick
04-25-2007, 05:27 PM
Prince, the guy ahs played 2 full seasons, that's it! Granted he had a ton of carries in both seasons, but come on.
And as far as locker room issues, this isn't the girl scouts. You're here to win ball games. Things don't work out in the next couple of years let him go and draft one then. But this is an elite back.
I'm sorry but this team lacks a playmaker. I can't see finding a top-ranked guy like LJ through the draft.
That's like saying you wouldn't want LT because of his contract. He's a game-changer.
Unbelievable...

04-26-2007, 12:04 AM
I'll second that umphrey. He may not be the best fit here in GB, but the guy is far from done in this league.
Someone said earlier that his "tires have a lot of miles". He's played 2 full seasons....get off it. He has at least 5 good years left in him....and that's the minumum. So stop using the age or "mileage" excuse.

5 years isn't far enough in the future, u obsessed draft picking lovers???? Gezus.

And anyone who would think Moss isn't worth a 3rd needs to take the blinders off...IMO

NAVY
04-26-2007, 03:38 AM
hold on now... LJ DOES have a lot of miles on him. Its not that he is ancient or that he cannot perform well anymore. He IS 27 which statistically means he has 3-4 years left. But carrying the load as much as he has in the last couple of years does take a toll on a RB. Not to mention he wants a contract worth more then the one LT signed last year. I don't think he is worth that much money or worth a first round pick.

I can see giving up a third for moss...or maybe even a second if we get their third or some other pick...

Mwkick
04-26-2007, 07:09 AM
I agree he's carried the load a lot, but he barely played at all before he was 25.
Typically 27 would be considered old if you were playing at a consistent level. But IMO since LJ sat behind Priest AND was in Vermiel's dog house, I would think he'd have at least 5 years of top-tier running left in him.

What do you think about Morency? He's 27....

I do agree, I don't think he's worth the big contract, but I believe LJ will be a top-tier back for quite some time.

umphrey
04-26-2007, 02:07 PM
Reasons I don't want LJ:

1) He's a bad teammate. I remember hearing reports and watching videos that he was childish, ie coaches always had to be around him reassuring him..."don't worry LJ, you'll get em next time". If we don't keep him happy he'll probably start whining about getting more involved too, etc.
2) He sucks at pass blocking.
3) He's gonna want a contract roughly 8 years, 80 million with lots of guarantees.
4) He got 416 carries last year. Now that doesn't mean his career is over, but it means he is probably 50% likely to get hurt a lot next year and will definitely see a drop off in production.
5) We have to give up 2 day 1 picks for him.
6) He isn't a great fit, we're looking for a curtis martin, warrick dunn, priest holmes, clinton portis kind of back. Not necessarily elite, but a smaller shifty guy with good speed that excels at following blocks.
7) I couldn't say this for sure, but I'm nervous that he is a product of KC (see Priest Holmes when he was old and still getting 20+ TDs). They have a history of great RBs, so it's possible that his production was inflated because of the system, coaching, and oline.

POSTED 11:05 p.m. EDT, April 26, 2007
PACKERS MAKE AN OFFER FOR MOSS?
There's talk in league circles that the Green Bay Packers have made an offer of a fourth-round draft pick to the Raiders for receiver Randy Moss.
The information doesn't come from the Packers or the Raiders, so there's a chance that it's not entirely accurate. With that said, it originates with a team that has a keen interest in the question of whether receiver Calvin Johnson will be on the board after the Raiders use their first pick.
And the obvious conclusion is that a trade of Moss will increase the likelihood that the No. 1 overall pick will be receiver Calvin Johnson.
This, in turn, could cause teams who are talking to the Lions about Johnson to shift their attention to the Raiders, since it might take a trade up to No. 1 to get Calvin.


I'm all for it.

Yes but the angle that needs to be looked at 2 fold. 1 is that he is averaging around 400 carries in KC where as in GB that wouldnt be the case having a real QB not a system that creates QB stats like they have in KC so his carries would be more effective and less so he might be a 1300-1500 yd back instead of a 1600-1800 yd back in KC which would prolong his career and make him worth a lot more. 2 is that as Brett gets older GB needs to have a star to transition from Brett to the next QB and taking the pressure off of whoever that may be so they can blossum into another great QB in the lineage of Packerdom. I think the LJ trade would be great and would instantly put you into Super Bowl contender and ahead of anyone in the NFC.

Plus if the rumors about Moss still being in the works an offense of Favre Moss and LJ with Driver and Jennings ?? WOW that would rival Indy and SD as an explosive Offense any Sunday !!

I like the combination of him and Kampman, don't like KGB's cap numbers though.

We'd have to eat some a large potion as a cap penalty. Not sure exactly what it is, but it wouldn't be cheap. We have space right now, so while he's not worth the contract it's not really hurting us.

something crazy i heard ..... that nfl clubs are worry about Peterson - RB

so there is a chance that the 1st runningback taken maybe Marshawn Lynch

if this turns to be true should the packers try to move up a bit to get AP?

then i heard it again from on NFL Network

I seriously doubt that happens, AD could slip within striking distance for us though.

The guy obviously wears an asshat with regards to reporting on the Justin Griffith deal, but I SO want this to happen:
I was told the Packers may be considering a deal that would land them BOTH the Patriots 1st round picks, by swapping the #16 pick with them.

Hmmm... For me that would equate to Nelson or Griffin at SS and TE Olsen. Maybe even Olsen at TE and Leonard at FB. That would make the offense a whole lot better for next year. Griffin more likely at SS later, so a Griffin and WR Bowe pairing also would likely reap large rewards down the line.

If GB traded down with NE, who would you want with the two later picks?

I'd like Meachem and Griffin but I don't know if either would be there
