Agreed to a 3 yr deal

They just ran out of time.

Sad to see him go. Really hoped/assumed that Ted would re-sign him (or House). Cornerback was a position of depth the past years but now a huge need and I think this hole can't be filled in the draft only. Really curious what Ted does now.

3 Year, $21 Million. That's a huge contract for a 32 year old CB. Good for Tramon, I am always happy to see players get paid but I am glad it's not Green Bay making that kind of commitment.

That's a bummer, but I'm glad he's getting some money. Good Packer. Wish him the best

Wow wow wow.  Shocker.  I expected we'd get one or the other between him and House.  But both bigger than I expected. 

Bummer. 

Hmm.  So, we've got $21+ in cap space.  What do do with it all, if none of it's going to Tramon or House?

Wow, thats a huge blow to a defense that couldn't afoord to take steps backwards.  What was the strength of our defense becomes a rather big weakness with the loss of 2 of our 3 best boundry CBs.

I'd bet the majority of it is hoarded for next season.

Happy for Williams, he did good things while in Green Bay.  Glad he got a big payday, TT made the right call on this.

I would like to see the breakdown on that.  Because that is way too big.

I thought three for 15 would be his selling price.

Man, the NFL really liked him and House.

Next man up?

I am happy for both but they were not going to get that in Green Bay.

I do not see Ted as hoarding.  He is making prudent business decisions.  Once you start overpaying it is very hard to back that truck up.

I agree with Gregg.  I would like to see the details of the deal as well.

That's a lot of money, but I bet the only guaranteed money is the first year salary.  If he got a big signing bonus then the Cleveland GM is as bad as Holmgren was when he was there.

As for the Packers, I suspect we go CB high and play next man up.

Tramon's had some nice moments over the years for us, especially that pick right before the half against ATL on the SB run, so I'll wish him the best and appreciate his time with GB.

That being said, I would've balked at giving Tramon or House anything north of $4m/year, so if they're signing for $6.25m and $7m, more than happy we didn't re-sign them.  Think that production will be easily replaced

I'm really surprised that someone was willing to pay Tramon that much and thought he'd return to us after sifting through the other options around the league.

Cornerback just became a bigger priority in the draft. I expect a boundary/speedster corner to be selected by us in the first two rounds now.

Damn Browns....good corner but c'mon that's crazy money.

We are now in the hurt bag.  Have to draft 2 CB's now.

Just became our #1 need.

Can't blame TT on that one.  Can't blame Tramon either...

Fortunately Pack is pretty good at developing corners. 

Gonna have to do it in a hurry now.
