The amount is secret. "Sources," according to the article I read.

Green Bay Packers News Talk / Earl Thomas

I think Thomas will have suitors, but getting the future HOFer to Green Bay would be a huge upgrade
I hope this link works.

Yeah, I think I'd be very happy with that.  Take that to the podium now and make sure Goddell gets it in his hands now!

Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: AAF League
« Last post by dannobanano on February 16, 2019, 11:13:15 AM »
Does anyone find it unusual that there are 24 former Packers in this league?  What does that sy about our talent evaluators?

Of the 20 something former players you refer to I believe only Bradford is a former draft pick, sounds like they did a heck of a job combing the undrafted players each year. But I doubt that is the spin you are trying to put on it.

24 former players? If they're so good, why aren't they on the roster of another NFL team? Is it time to bring up the loss of Hill  deadhorse) ? The real question is whether the AAF will become a conduit for college players looking to get paid, but being forced to stay in college. If some of the premiere players (expecially QB's) start opting out, this could alter the relationship between college and pros. Could this lead to a reconsideration of the rules regarding when players are eligible? Or whether a player who opts to turn pro, but is not drafted, could then return to his college team without penalty? There are interesting and intriguing scenarios that the AAF brings to the table.

Not sure the point you were trying to make with 'If they're so good, why aren't they on the roster of another NFL team' comment. All 32 teams cut 27 37 players each year to get from the 90 man roster to 53, that is 864 players cut each year. The list of former players probably is relevant from the standpoint that it is from the pool of every teams cuts. Unless of course the other 864 players are on another NFL team.

You took a hard left with the Hill comment and have no idea how that plays in here. Nobody on here was pounding the table any harder than I was to keep Hill at cut down to 53, but that is water over the dam and nothing positive is gained by that continuous rehash. I had to go back and look and see who thought that I was crazy to want to keep Hill and it was leader and Cheech that seem to want to debate that I was off my rocker. Again water over the dam.

As college and pro changes. Nothing is changing on that front, the AAF has the same 3 year rule that the NFL does. As for playing and returning to college, well it wouldn't matter if it was a sunday beer league game, if a player is paid anything he is no longer eligible to play that college sport. Period.

Fixed it, RT.   thumbsup)

Sets a bad precedent IMO. Whats stopping a guy like Dez Bryant from claiming the same thing?  "No team wants me so it must be collusion".

I believe I recognize 5 of those names.

Not exactly HOF guys.

I got asked to play in a AAF fantasy football league about a month ago.  Hell, I had never heard of the league, let alone the teams or players.

Mark,

How do you know the actual amount?

Or are you just guessing?

1 here Footballdad.
 I like the rookies and we should let them grow through play as they did last year. He have an investment roughly equal to the 4th pick in round four.
We are likely to have gotten great value out of these picks in a year or two. Still lots of reasons to be excited about the 3 drafted WRs, IMHO. 
61 catches for 954 yards is real production for the rookies.
 Frankly I see little need for spending any picks this year on WRs for if you add Kummerow and Geronimo to the rookies we will have a filled out WR corps.
 Only wish we were as solid at OL as WR.

Just thought I'd share my second Fanspeak attempt using the Drafttek board from 2/14/19 on the difficult setting. Absurdly unrealistic, but I'd sure take it!
