    This is the second best secenario that could have happened. The best being we trade him to Texans for something worth more than a 4th rounder and the worst scenario being he reports, we give up a 4th rounder, pay him 5 million to be our 3rd stringer.
    "We're only going to score 17 points?" Brady said before chuckling about it. "OK. Is Plax playing defense? I wish he had said 45-42 and gave us a little credit for scoring more points."

      Well we lose a 7th rounder next draft I think, but we still own his rights in hope that he decides he still wants to play.

      We may not here anymore about Plummer till draft day, but expect his name to be brought up in the hopes that he wants to go to Houston and play for Kubiak and we get a bargain of some sort.

          Yeah I'll take that over a future 7th any day. Look at our recent 7ths: Massaquoi, Phinissee, Russell, Abdullah & Razzano are all goners. Bennett and Warren still have a chance, but we're not a team that really relies on 7th rounders often anyway.

            How often does a 7th rounder actually turn in to a good player anyway. Barring your Marques Colstons, a lot of the players are career backups or out of the league in a few years.

              Donald Driver, Mark Tauscher, and Scott Wells, just to name three all of which are currently starters on the Packers.

                Now list every 7th rounder who is out of the league and you will be in the vast minority

                  TJ Houshmandzadeh also was a 7th rounder

                  But the point is, 7th rounders have maybe a 10% chance of sticking

                  Good move by the Glazers, Plummer retires we lost a 2008 7th round pick and 5 mil goes into the Glazers pockets

                      What do you mean? We spen every penny under the salary cap every year. We pay our caoching staff very well. The Glazers just built a 20 mil training facility. Sacrificing a 7th round pick and pocketing 5-7 mil as a worst case scenario is not a bad deal at all. All trades involve some level of risk and reward, and this trade was very little risk and plenty of reward

                        As far as I know he still hasn't filed his papers with the NFL.

                          Driver is the only one that is really good out of those ones

                            Some teams rely on late round picks more than others. Not us, most of our 7ths fail to stick with the team or the league. Until we start drafting gems in the 7th, trading them away is meaningless.

                              Hopefully Jazzy Warren develops, but if we land CJ this year he could be thrown to the scrap heap.
