We've seen this movie,  Green Bay is "interested", Thompson offers a vet minimum with some Kroll's gift certificates thrown in. Player goes somewhere else.   I hope this year is different.

Sorry I watched Nitschke on "What's My Line." To me the only NFL news is packer News.

I should have put this in the On the Streets where 'rumors' go.

If the last couple years have taught our organization anything, it's that the draft has not been enough to turn around this lousy defense.

It is quite obvious we need to sign a proven player, if we don't this off season then I seriously question what our management is thinking.

......so I hope it means Ted has come out to play with the big boys!!

I wouldn't bet the farm on it, but the enthusiasm is nice. Just don't get your hopes up as Ted has an S.O.P and it is usually not Free Agency.

We play the 3-4 so neither of these guys get me excited.

That's right, because drafted players tend to get hurt, whereas FAs are proven players and therefore never get hurt.

A more reputable source, NFL.com, is now reporting the Packers interest in DE's Houston and Jones.

If we get Jones and Raji comes back on a one year deal our dline is in pretty good shape.  Jones, Jones, Raji, with Boyd, Daniels, Worthy and others backing up.  I think getting both is a bit of a longshot but if we did it would sure make the draft a little easier.  Safety, TE, OLB

I wonder if we have the money to get Jones, Raji and EDS if we want to sign Cobb and Jordy to extensions.  Raji would only be a one year deal so he wouldnt change much.

I think the human terrier Cortland Finnegan in the slot with Shields and Williams as corners move Hyde to safety with Burnett would be great
Cortland Finnegan would add the type of attitude this secondary needs. I still LMAO at how Finnegan suckered Johnson into getting ejected. The dude took a couple major roundhouses for his team and laughed . too funny.

If we've got Shields and Williams on the roster then I think adding Finnegan is overkill.  Casey Hayward is a very good slot CB!

Ask Vic on Packers.com says the Packers are interested in Jairus Byrd.  Not sure if he really has any inside info

I think Ask Vic was being sarcastic when he said that.

I'm a huge fan of both Jones and Houston if used properly. What's tempering my hopes is the early indications that this will be a crazy spending free agency period.

When the auctioneer gets frothy, TT tends to sneak away to a quiet corner (and rightfully so). Both players are significantly better all-around players than Everson Griffen, who just hauled in $42M/5, so the tag might be steep.

Dangit. Maybe the Packers are being used again. Agent says they've never called about Houston.

I'd be happy with either of these guys.  Need help up front and these guys would be an upgrade.
