If the Packers do take Rattey or Brooks might be an addiction that Farve won't be a Packer next season either by a trade or he simply retires..
In a perfect world, that would be a great scenario, except for the V. Young part. I would definately take Leinart over Young. Young has that fumbleitis thing much like AB. Not to mention, there is a short shelf life for running QB's in the NFL. In reality though, Green Bay will not let Favre go unless its to retire. He is too big of an icon to the Green Bay fan base.

Not that I'm against that trade, but... Favre has stated that it's not his job to get a young QB ready to play. It's his job to be a starter. He's supposedly not taught Aaron Rogers anything in his rookie year.

Hell if we can't get anything for him just cut him. I like the 17 million under the salary cap. Hey does anyone know if that 17 million is already deducting Howards salary? I don't believe it is and at that point we would have alot more money for some good FA's.

Just a couple of observations on this topic.

1. Green Bay is run by a bunch of idiots for hiring McCarthy.
2. If McCarthy wants Brooks, then he probably is willing to give up WAY too much to be reunited with him.
3. New coach + idiots running the franchise = we get more for Brooks than he's worth.

McCarthy is our best bet to really take advantage of anyone with a Brooks trade. I'd shop him to Green Bay pretty hard. I wouldn't really ask for any players to complicate the deal either. I wouldn't really be shocked if McCarthy was willing to give a 2nd for him and I'd laugh all the way to the bank. McCarthy will never have more influence in personnel matters, so I'd really be in favor of dealing Brooks before draft day.

RE: Re: RE: Greenbay May Want AB!

First of all, this is probably all just speculation because some guy at PFW noticed that McCarthy once coached Brooks, so he thought he'd make some crap up and post it.

But hey, if PFW is right for once, then yeah, get AB's dumb arse out of here. Any first-day draft pick would be amazing, but even a 4th would be good too.

And another note. ISN'T THERE A HUGE CAP PENALTY FOR JUST CUTTING A PLAYER??????? I think that if we cut him, we will take a huge cap penalty for it, but maybe I'm just making that up. Any enlightenment?

I agree cher, If we can't get a penny for him, cut him and be happy with the 17 mil, I just want him gone.
I don't see the packers given us their 2nd pick, Brooks isn't worth that, let's be honest, a 4th or 5th maybe, hell a hand shake would work for me.
As for the penalty for cutting a player I haven't read anything on us paying a penalty for cutting Brooks, I know that if we cut him before March 1st we don't owe Brooks a dime.

I thought I remember reading that even if we cut Brooks, there's a significant cap hit (4 or5 mil?) for us. I think I read it somewhere late in the season when Brooks was benched, but I don't remember where, or when.

Actually, that's incorrect. Brooks has been paid the vast majority of his bonuses, which causes the cap hits when players are cut. His 6 point something mil salary is mainly just that, salary, so if we cut him, he is at minimal cap charge. I doubt it would even be a million dollars total. We have the keys to get rid of him, it's just a matter of if we do it or not.

Do the math. 4 or 5 million is (greater than or less than) 17 million. Think we should give them Brooks and a complimentary 7th round pick for taking him off our hands. But I still want the bag of Fritos.... Snack-size.... Bar-B-Que.
