yeah, let's load up on skill players who spent or will spend significant time on IR. Truly inspired.

I just read the recaps of the show. It seems the new regime wants no part of letting players go away for no compensation. reported that we could have had Corey Simon or Eagles #31 last year for Howard and said no. I can see the reasoning if Grant isn't in your long term plans.

More scuttlebutt about locker room attitudes also. Mackenzie can stick on performance if he can conform to Payton's approach. Horn??? Maybe not.

Now THAT would be da bomb trade to me... send Joe to GB to be with his old bud McCarthy for Walker that doesnt wanna be there.

I hope Grant stays and we draft Hawk or Brick. Charles does too many things well just to be let go for an unproven, season-ending injury Javon Walker.

thank you. it's good to see some logic from time to time. some of you overrate Grant just a tad.

I would make the trade. Grant is good but lets be real the guy is not a elite DE, and never will be.

He is well above average. do not blame him for haz calls of last year. run blitz was #1 call. Last year we broke our streak for having at least , I forgot the #, sacks per year. We were in the top 5 of the NFL till haz blew that with cutting players and play calling caught up with him. Blame the coaching.
As for the swap I say no. swap out of 4 let GB have Mario and we get Javon Walker and throw in Henderson maybe Donte in exchange for there #3.
