Good article on Harris and Woodson.

I don't know why, but reading this made me think, Could Woodson be Thompson's Reggie white to a lesser degree?

Yep, unrestricted. He'll probably be gone. He wants money, we have depth at DT, and plenty of teams will be willing to outspend us.

I still am liking the idea of franchising him. Then we can try to trade him or keep him for one year with out having to sign a multi year contract.

Exclusive rights free agent means that we own him. If we want him back he is forced to sign a contract for minimum salary.

Especially if we have a bunch of cap when it comes the time to make that decision. If we're going to sit on a bunch of money I can understand that, but if we can franchise a player and keep him around for another year and just use part of that cap space than we should.

Grant has saved us so he needs a fair deal. Have we seen enough to give him a big contract, or do we wait 1 more year? personally i think he is the real deal and the playoffs help show it. He better be a Packer 4 a long great career

If all we do in free agency is resign him and the rest of our guys I would actually be fine with that.

He'll get his, we don't have to worry about it though. We have him for next year no matter what. He'll get a new deal before next year's offseason, it's just a matter of when. I think we will wait until during next season to give him an extention.

Me too. I think it will happen though pretty soon if he keeps this up. Sometimes players just need to be rewarded for doing huge things for the team and that is what he did. He came in and gave us a running game when we desperately needed it, because lets face it, if our running game would have finished the season as it started there is no chance we'd be near our level today. Favre throwing 50 or 60 times a game would have been figured out eventually.

Just dont want another Javon Walker type thing happen. but that was a little bit different because J-Walk had like a 5 year rookie deal he was on and asked for more. Plus Grant seems like a good guy but im pretty sure J-Walk seemed like 1 to.

I'm not worried about it. Grant will cash in, it's just a matter of time. When we do give him a new contract I hope we lock him up long term though. If he keeps running like he has he'll be very expensive in a couple years. The soonest I'd expect an extention would be training camp. Then we get through free agency and sign our draft picks and know exactly where we're at cap wise. Then we can structure the deal accordingly.

As we we know TT doesn't jump to conclusions, but he knows when somebody deserves a deal. I think we'll see offseason talks and something that can get a deal done is a player being prominent within the organization, if we continue to hear good things during the offseason about how Grant is "thee guy" then a deal will be done. I just hope there's no cheap skate type of stuff on the front office side of things that could stir up our locker room.

I think a likely scenario is a little one year deal done no matter what with extension talks to go with it.

Exactly what I've been saying. He'll be signed to the Exclusive Rights free agent contract which is the minimum salary for a third year player. Then we will negotiate with him until an extention is signed probably in July-September.

Did anyone else see or hear favre saying that he never said he was comming back next year? I realise that he never actually did, but he did confirm that on tv today for the people that assumed he was implying that his decision was already made.
