gilbert traded
« on: August 28, 2019, 05:58:10 PM »
for a 7th round pick to Tennessee.  They get something for a player who would have been 5th OLB at best.


This also gives them some flexibilty at cutdown time. If you put a player on IR before the roster deadline you lose them for the season.  If you have them on the roster at the deadline then a few hours later you can add the player to IR with the possibility of getting him back later in the season,

For example they can go with 4 OLB's at the deadline with ESB as the 7th receiver.  Then you put ESB on the IR and add Ramsey someone they pick up as the 5th OLB.

Nice move by Gute.

So, the additions of the Smith's, plus the drafting of Gary and the emergence(?) of Fackrell meant that the Packers were probably going cut Gilbert anyway. As noted, good move by Gutekunst.

Nothing for Mike Daniels, nothing for Josh Jones, 7th for Gilbert ?

Here is what the team got for Daniels: https://packerswire.usatoday.com/2019/07/24/how-does-releasing-mike-daniels-affect-packers-salary-cap/

Jones was cut, and has now cleared waivers. In short, none of the other 31 teams was interested in even adding him to their 90 man rosters. So, with that information, it's hard to see how the Packers were going to get another team to give up anything for a player no one apparently wants.
Gilbert at least had some "flash moments", and could provide some situational pass rushing ability. Jones also has a treatable medical issue:

Daniels contract made it hard to trade him.

The Jones release is interesting to me, based on contract and talent he should of been tradable. With the fact that not a single team even bothered to kick the tires for free for a week hints at something unknown to the public in his closet. We probably will never know the whole story here.

Just guessing, but it is probably a longshot that the Packers really do get anything for Gilbert. He said himself that he hopes to be ready for opening day with his injury, if not than by week 2. He needs to first pass his physical for the trade to go through. And that is probably only step one of the trade, it probably is a conditional 7th based on playing time and games played. Most times those picks do not transfer. Would be nice if this was one that did.
