Greenbay May Want AB!

From pfw

Sources in Titletown expect the Packers to recruit a veteran quarterback to Green Bay. We’re told head coach Mike McCarthy would be interested in acquiring Aaron Brooks or Tim Rattay, former pupils of his in New Orleans and San Francisco, respectively. It’s not a certainty either player will be available, but each has a high salary relative to his impact thus far. Brooks might only consider coming to Green Bay as the team’s starter, an opportunity unlikely to be extended to him unless Aaron Rodgers fails to perform in minicamps without Brett Favre. Should Favre retire, though, Brooks could be enticed to join Green Bay to compete for the starting spot.

If we can get a third for him go for it!

If we could get a late seventh round for him, go for it!

I heard they wanted Brooks, because the guy that ran the drivable snow plow at Lambeau died & well, Brooks seemed like the perfect replacement for him after his play last season.

At least a 4th for AB, then take it.

I'd settle for them paying for his plane ticket out of New Orleans.

Yeah I would too, but some kind of draft pick would be nice.

Even if we can't get a stupid GM like say Matt Millen to bite on taking Brooks, canning his sorry butt would put us at around $17 million under the cap. So, whether we get a draft pick or not, it is best for us to get rid of Brooks to free up more money for free agency.

Here's a thought, we give them Brooks in exchange for Farve, then draft Young, who better to teach a young QB than Farve, Farve could be our starter next season , then in two years it would be Young's team and Brett would retire a Packer, everybody would be happy, make sense?
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..

Right on LTF. Trade Brooks for Farve. And have the caveat that if Farve retires before the season's over, we get a 3rd this year or a 4th next year.
