I hear a lot of people patting themselves on the back for predicting we would re-sign Greg Jennings. That’s hardly impressive if you ask me. Nail the next move, and I’ll be impressed.
The entire world knew the Packers would get a Jennings deal done. There was never a doubt, just some concerns on the timing. Making a prediction about it is the same as saying the grass will be green this year, the sun will come up tomorrow, and IronMan will hit a couple of Packer forums today. The correct forecast is hardly a sign of supernatural superiority.
I am happy the deal is done, happy it’s before training camp, and happy it’s off the table. The real trick? Predicting the Packer’s next move.
The likely answer is the re-signing of Nick Collins, but I am going to go out on a limb and say that one is going to take awhile. My prediction on the next move the Packers make?
Signing a veteran quarterback.
Let’s face it, Brohm is not getting it done, and Flynn, although serviceable, is more of a check-down king than a starting quarterback in the NFL. With neither backup making huge strides, the Packers are going to be forced to start considering a veteran arm to up the level of competition.
The talent pool is shallow right now, but don’t be surprised if the Packers bring in a fresh arm to mix things up a bit.
That’s my prediction and I’m sticking to it.
Check back later today as we break down mini-camp day three, and check back tonight as we unleash a whole set of mini-camp video not available anywhere else but Cheesehead Nation.
In the meantime, all hail Gregorious.
