The word around the football drinking fountain is, Smith was way too slow to make plays. His replacement worked rings around him.

Throw in a guaranteed 9 million if he gets injured and cant play next year and he was a liability Dallas was happy to get rid of.

I'm expecting nothing and if he delivers more then that fine.

Maybe I missed it or have it wrong or both.

1) Why did NE trade Gilmore? The story I heard reported was that they haven't offered him an extension so he didn't want to play for them. What else makes sense? Why else cut or trade a good CB even one coming off an injury?

2) Has anyone seen reported by local or national media that a major reason why the packers couldn't sign/trade for Gilmore is that he was insisting on an extension in NE and hence was targeting teams with a desire to do so.

So most likely it had nothing to do with what Gute would offer in a trade or that Gilmore had a 2021 price tag of 7.5M but everything to do with saving their money to extend Ja the better and younger CB who is also up for an extension. Not to mention the Packers 2022/23 Cap situation.

As always not a shot at anyone in particular, IMO A Naglar and CHTV are the best Packer site for Packer analysis. Just using the site/post to ask the questions...

Not a fan of it, I understand it as insurance if they couldn't get the CB they wanted come draft so not to be forced to reach. But 6M? He may be better than we fans think but was someone really going to pay him that much? Sure he knows the system, for the most part, familiar with team/teammates/ etc but it was also in his best interest to come in on the cheap on a prove it year where he is already acclimated.

There wasn't much out there, especially Boundary corners and the move is paying off with the injuries (they had zero depth for a team looking to compete for a SB) Heck Jackson and Hollman are gone and ento didn't even make the 53.

But ya, IMO paid too much.....

That said its two different situations, Gilmore wasn't an available FA in the offseason. and IMO, the Packers now, would of given up a 6th and paid 7M for a 1 year rental if Gilmore would of taken it. Remember that whole situation is suspect as he was announced cut then all of a sudden a trade was made, I think Nags explained it or I heard it somewhere that its a negotiation tactic by agents and the team?

Im thinking That way the agent can make sure there is interest in an extension and agree to a trade instead of just going through waivers and having any team claim him, possibly putting him right back in the situation he was trying to get out of.
