According to Joe Fortenbaugh at the National Football Post, the Packers are putting the full court press on Canty’s agent, reportedly by offering more money than the Giants.
Needless to say, I think Thompson realizes how badly his defensive line needs help.
UPDATE: See here for the latest from Bedard, which contradicts the report above.
UPDATE 2: So much for that.
17 mil guaranteed is reported. If so, I understand why Thompson passed. I understand he has a boatload of players becoming free agents in 2010. The question is, outside of Jennings, are any of them worth a damn? And what good is it to keep a bunch of guys if your defensive (and offensive) line is in shambles? That’s where the game is won and as we saw last season, the Packers are weakest at those positions. So it would seem Thompson would need to pay someone at sometime….
