Even with the off-season moving at a snail's pace, I still have some things to ramble on.
It seems every guy that is rumored to be in talks with our team has some sort of character issue. It’s either dirty play, arrests, or the unforgiveable act of guaranteeing a win against an opponent. Part of me wants to think, “Looks like Ted is moving past ‘Packer People’ and just wants to win” but the truth is, the NFL is full of scumbags and if any GM wants to fill a roster, he’s going to have some guys with character issues. At the same time, don’t turn the team into the Raiders.
I never thought I would see Packers fans so angry that guys like Christ Canty didn’t sign with Green Bay. Two months ago, could you imagine being upset that we didn’t bring in powerhouses like Kevin Burnett? Free agency does crazy things to people. Oh no, we didn’t get Grey Ruegamer! F*CK!
Tramon Williams is holding out. Or at least that’s what most people will have you believe. I want to know how you can hold out of something that isn’t taking place. That’s like me saying I’m not going to serve in the military! Take that, Government! What’s that? There’s no draft and I’m not obligated? Okay, nevermind then. Similar circumstances here. When there’s actually something that he’s missing (camp, OTA’s) then it’s an issue. Till then, it’s his agent doing his job.
For the record, Tramon deserves a payday but holding out won’t be any part of negotiations. It got Tramon’s name in the news and got people noticing he’s vastly underpaid. Good job, agent.
It seems Jarrett Bush has the itch to test the market because he is meeting with a number of teams. I can’t wait until someone takes him. That would be sure to cheer up my buddy Alex. This is addition by subtraction in every sense of the word. With Pat Lee and Tramon Williams being the future at the cornerback position and bringing in safeties in free agency, the Packers have no need whatsoever for Jarrett Bush.
