Should be fixed now - thanks for pointing it out!

alfredomartinez's picture

who else is left to sign?

packeraaron's picture

Jolly, Bigby, Colledge, T Williams

CSS's picture

Is Kuhn on the roster when the regular season begins?

packeraaron's picture

I had him gone in camp last year, so what do I know...

nerdmann's picture

I think they like him over Hall.

wgbeethree's picture

isn't today the deadline to sign or the Packers can reoffer them at only 110 percent of last years pay? I could be wrong but I thought that was the deal. That would mean a possible big cut in the money offered for those still unsigned.

packeraaron's picture

No, yesterday was the deadline for another team to sign them to an offer sheet. The deadline you're thinking of is June 15th.

wgbeethree's picture

thanks for clearing that up for me. I was wondering why there wasn't a flurry of activity yesterday.

In a related topic, I don't pay too much attention to the rest of the NFL in the offseason. Does that mean ZERO players tendered with a pick were signed away? Bell is the only player I can recall signing with someone else but he was just a first refusal tender.

Yea, a lot of RFA players and agents must have over estimated the market for them...I wonder how many of them are going to be pissed at the player's union for letting this deal expire...especially those RFA players who are in their prime now.

Ron LC's picture

Like he had any other choice? Astually, I like him, but if there are 3 FB's left before the last cut one of them has to go. They can't waste that spot on a position they could use for other needs.

Aaron, I have a question that I know that you can answer. How does the time stamp work on the posts? It's obviously not Central time.

packeraaron's picture

Never even noticed, but it's clearly not Eastern either! Will get that fixed.

CJ in Guatemala's picture

Glad i wasn't the only one viewing odd times on posts, i know i spent about a total of 10 mins checking for any site configuration options!

Anyway i'm glad its fixed now.

CJ in Guatemala's picture

"getting" fixed now is what i meant

alfredomartinez's picture

Jolly yes...bigby, i d k i think im getting to be done w him, T williams...too many injuires...colledge, sure why not, we need him!

aussiepacker's picture

How has tramon williams had to many injuries? I think your thinking of will blackmon.

aussiepacker's picture

And will blackmon already signed his tender.

nerdmann's picture

Tramon is probably adequate, but I'd like to see him take another step.

PackersRS's picture

I think you confused them all!

"Jolly yes, colledge, i d k i think im getting to be done w him, bigby... too many injuries, T williams, sure why not, we need him!"

There ya go!

CJ in Guatemala's picture

LOL, totally agree with it.

FITZCORE1252's picture

He doesn't make the team. I think Hall beats him out, don't see Quinn getting cut. Anybody hear anything new on the Westbrook front?

alfredomartinez's picture

AUSSIEPACKER ur right i got them confused, and PACKERSRS that just made my day LMAO!!

packsmack25's picture

I kinda wish he would have refused to sign and sat out the season....

Oppy's picture

Coach Rhodes? Awesome.

Is that for the sake of obscurity, nostalgia, or did you lose a bet?

packsmack25's picture

Ah, Fitzcore said he had the Lombardi pic first, so I decided to switch from the best coach ever to the worst one ever.

FITZCORE1252's picture

Dude I changed to Woodson, don't know why Vince is still showing on here? I had no idea that's why you were rocking Ray. I'll go in and try to change it again. Nobody should have to rock Ray.

FITZCORE1252's picture

YES! I guess I needed to clear my cache.

Vince and I had a good run, time to change it up for a while, Vince is yours Smack. Me and Chuck got some 'bitniss' to handle.

packsmack25's picture

Haha, well now I actually like being the only one to have Coach Rhodes. It's good to always have a reminder that it could be worse...

Ron LC's picture

And now the agents and Ball go at it. Let's get Jolly and Williams signed up ASAP. Get Bigby to sign an irrevocable contract that declares he doesn't play any games with his thumb up his arse (i.e. Pitt, Minn (2) and Cards).

Colledge should be allowed to hold out until he returns some of last years' money.

FITZCORE1252's picture

I know at least 2 people are with me on the Hughes front, RS and Mike. Jerry, Jerry, Jerry...

FITZCORE1252's picture

Oh, but Mike, TCU had him standing up quite a bit actually.

Ron LC's picture

Of course, I'm betting JJ beats the rap on his felony charge.

June's picture

Can't we use Kuhn for a trade? Maybe during the draft? Would anybody go for that you think?

packeraaron's picture

Highly doubtful. Most of the NFL has gone away from using fullbacks at all. That's what made it all the more shocking when Thompson kept 3 last year.

FITZCORE1252's picture

"Most of the NFL has gone away from using fullbacks at all."

Not really true. Couldn't find anything from last year, but this is from 2008

Bucky Brooks:

"A team can produce a formidable rushing attack without a fullback, but having a quality lead blocker enhances its chances. It isn't a coincidence that the NFL's top 10 rushing offenses last season each featured a fullback."

"Fullbacks have been regarded as an endangered species for years, but history continues to show that they are relevant in today's NFL. With the running game back in vogue, fullbacks should continue to fight off extinction for the next few years."

NFL's top 10 rushing teams in 2008
Rk Team Yds/G TDs Primary fullback
1. Giants 157.4 19 Madison Hedgecock
2. Falcons 152.7 23 Ovie Mughelli
3. Panthers 152.3 30 Brad Hoover
4. Ravens 148.5 20 Lorenzo Neal
5. Vikings 146.1 15 Naufahu Tahi
6. Patriots 142.4 21 Heath Evans
7. Titans 137.4 24 Ahmard Hall
8. Redskins 130.9 12 Mike Sellers
9. Jets 125.2 20 Tony Richardson
10. Raiders 124.2 9 Luke Lawton
» 2008 NFL team rushing leaders

ALL had FB's that played a prominent role in the rushing game.

"SOLID" fullbacks (which Kuhn is)still have a place in the league, don't know if that will be the case in a decade though.

...and look at how old most of those guys are...

FITZCORE1252's picture

"and look at how old most of those guys are"

OK?

Not sure what your point is there?

Are you implying that these teams aren't going to draft/sign replacements for these "older" FB's?

Are you implying, they're just being "nice" and waiting 'till these guys "decide" to retire to switch their offensive philosophy (awww what a sweet proposition)?

I doubt it... there's always "the next guy".

WOOT!

FITZCORE1252's picture

Maybe a 6th or a 7th. Maybe.

Chicago Hooligan's picture

Kuhn is a goalline package guy, Johnson is still (maybe) the power blocker. I wouldn't get too hung up on them both being tagged FBs. I don't know if Hall still has a place on the team but they like flexible players like him.

Erik's picture

Is it said I want Kuhn on the team just to hear the fans cheer "KHUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN" whenever he does anything?

packeraaron's picture

Have to admit - I love that as well.

dan pacheco's picture

i think the thing all you cheese heads seem to forget is that ever since kory has came to green bay he has yet to play a full season. you constaltly see people on these boards banging on kuhn saying he wont make the roster an he's no good but he proved it last year that he belongs an he will do the same in 2010. so if buy chance he does get traded or cut i really hope he goes to a place where the fan base knows a little about football...

packeraaron's picture

I disagree somewhat Dan about people "banging on Kuhn" - I do think fans were a bit confused with the keeping of 3 fullbacks. Kuhn is a fine player, but he's one of three fullbacks on a team that probably only needs one.
