    Re: Unrestricted Free Agents In 2010

    I've said it once and I'll say it again- I would be ecstatic if we were able to bring Aaron Kampman in to play the end opposite Jared. The Packers coaching staff was foolish enough to try to put a square peg in a round hole by taking one of the best pure defensive ends in all of football and telling him to lose weight and play 3-4 outside linebacker. That's akin to us telling Jared Allen to do the same thing. Fortunately for us, this could mean a lowered asking price on an otherwise great Kampman.

    That said, this coming offseason I think the three biggest needs will be Quarterback, Safety, and Defensive tackle, in that order. We have a solid d-line but, as we've tirelessly discussed, Pat is getting up there. The safeties this year are just not doing it for me either. Of course we all know about the Brett situation, this likely being his last year. Those are all positions we should be able to address in the draft, leaving us the ability to focus on re-signing Chester and picking up one big name Free Agent player to bolster a team that's likely already a deep playoff contender.

    I think you can remove QB off that list.
    We should resign TJ and Brett will be back for 1 more year. I Hope we trade up and draft a elite QB around pick 15. I don't think safety is that big a concern. We can't give up on TJ and Williams is making too much money to release. We won't address the situation. I believe the issues to fix are DT and DE. Everything else should be a draft pick because nothing we sign will be a starter.

    Ryan Clark ... NO DOUBT about it.

    This guy is a fantastic player at a position we are really struggling at and have for a few years now.

    I would love to insert Clark into our secondary mix.

    I also think we should re-sign ... and will re-sign ... Chester Taylor. An RB his age is going to have a tough time getting serious dough on the open market and hopefully we show appreciation by bringing him back.

    Peppers is a far-fetched dream ... but Kampman would be fun.

    Peppers might be far fetched, but one can dream.

    Kampman would be fine!

    Do the Pack let him get away?

    LOL, is any S going to look good in our system?
    Clark?

    If any, I'd suspect Clark to be the one.
    He'd be moving from Tomlin's defense to Fraizer's..
    Not much difference in the coverage scheme, is there?

    Clark is a very good player and has more tools than both TJ and Madieu have.

    I don't think the Pack will have a choice. Kampman is going to walk because he does not want to be a LB.

    Agreed, Kampman is no longer an asset to them and they won't want to pay him to do a less than average job that he's doing.

    I don't know if the Packers think that he is no longer an asset.

    He is a team mate.

    The Sound FX segment that I saw with the Packers, they were trying to get him his stats.
    It sounded like they have him playing his role.
    They were ahead and the coaches let him run free and he got a sack.


    I don't think they let him go.. If they are going to compensate Kampmann for what he thinks he is worth, he will stay.
    We will see in time what happens.

    -kevoncox-


    I'm gonna have to disagree about the safety not being a big concern, I think it's our biggest concern, Johnson, and M Williams rank 45th and 47th in tackles among safeties, A combined 1 INT, Our secondary has given up more yards than the Skins, Raiders, Bills, Bears, Bucs, Texans, Panthers to name a few.

    We're near the bottom for INT's, and Passes defended. Very sad considering who we've played.

    Vilfork would be awesome to get, But like you said-He'll be pricey.


    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.
