New Defense - New Faces.
Release Campbell and P. Smith. -
You have the draft Ammo to replace either.
We saw how long it took to replace Daniels.
Clarke ? - Just keep him. Honor the contract.
Jones - keep him for Love and Pride.
Trading Alexander is a possibility.
Let Savage go. Bahk - Injury settlement.

You can never replace the reliability and presence of Smith to this team and in the locker room with an unknown commodity. Availability is the best ability. See what happens if we have Aaron Jones for 20 or 21 games next season.

8 sacks in 19 games for P.Smith. He will have to take a refi deal. Is he able to go hand in the dirt like he did with Washington? Clark is not going anywhere, neither is Jaire, the secondary is already paper-thin. Campbell's knees may have taken a toll, but you want backups and he knows how to defend. They still need the dominant DT. Draft Sweat for the 4-2. Bhak will probably retire.

Let the kids play!
Refi a deal for the next 4 years is ridicules.
Cut him and resign him.
Stop the long term deals with
the over the 30.
Rodgers was a leader too.
It's time to say enough.

The refi is essentially a take it, or leave it scenario. NO long terms attached. The big buck guys have to show up in the Playoffs. He drafted Van Ness over Broderick Jones to send a message to Smith.

Remember the old adage that says you don't draft for today you draft for tomorrow. For today, let's see what happens first in free agency. As usual opinions will vary. One thing I would not do is give up any draft capital as we are set to have a great draft with all our picks. As i see it, the best thing we could do for today is try to land one game changing player from free agency. A couple have already been mentioned on Cheesehead. Words alone will accomplish nothing. Action must be taken. Gute has some very important decisions to be made before the start of the season. The first chapter is free agency. Chapter two is the draft. The objective for the 2024 season is the Superbowl. If we can stay relatively healthy this can be the year.

......and the money to pay for a game-changing veteran FA comes from ? Are you going to push even MORE money into the future.

The Packers are simply not in a position to pay a lot of money to a single veteran FA. Next year they might be, but this year they continue to pay for having pushed so much money into future debt.

You want a good guy at Safety (for example), draft one and hope he learns quickly. You might (in fact it is quite likely) that you do get a veteran FA, but it will be a cheaper fill-in the Packers hope is good enough to survive another season without being the Royce Newman of a unit.

It is tough to accept this, but that is the cap situation this year.

The 'run it bqck one more year' decision has panned out as one of the worst decisions the Packers have made for a long time.

It's like a young person with their first credit card, piling up debt and ignoring the future. I don't really know what the front office was thinking when they shoved so much debt into the future.

However, coulda and shoulda are in the rear view mirror now and the Packers have to deal with what is. 2024 will be painful, as 2023 was, but with a little luck, when 2025 rolls around, the cap situation will be much improved.

Chalk the earlier bad decisions down to a learning experience, one that should never be repeated and move on.

This all started with the Aaron Rodgers-Broncos trade/nontrade debacle. Once you start down these pushing money ahead deals, its hard to see the light outside the tunnel. It's a bad deal even if you are getting good production out of the players, but so much worse if not. The amount of money that teams are paying for players not even on the team is staggering.

The Bahktiari deal is really unsatisfying with the amount of games David has missed the last 3 years. We have no options with Campbell and P Smith, at least Smith played well this last year.

I have disagreed with Leatherhead about keeping Savage. I am coming around to his way of thinking because again, we do owe Savage $5 million regardless if he is a Packer in 2024 or not. He probably would not be much more expensive to sign to a 3 year contract in the $5 million per year range with some incentive package.
Also I really think our D-Backs will all benefit from our new DC because he is a D-Back specialist. That was the big bonus in hiring either Hafley, Evero, or the coaches from Denver and Baltimore.

Part of this could be helped by the league allowing bigger yearly increases in salary cap. The newer player contracts are forcing that now. With the amount of dollars QBs alone command puts teams behind from the start. The cap hasn't been keeping up with the increases in salary for quite a while now. Hopefully GBs money guys can figure out Clark and Jones new contracts without hurting us more.

Owens is the smart move if your bringing in new safety talent. Rudy savage smith stokes hit the road. Let gets speed and size at corner safety and end and rock and roll baby.
Defense seriously lacked speed. Can't have receivers running past you Savage, Nixon.

Draft Khyree Jackson-CB-Oregon via Alabama. 6'3 200lbs and runs 4.4. or T J Tampa-Ia St-6'2 200 and runs 4.4
Either would be a great addition to CB room. After trading back from #25 and getting a high 2nd and a 3rd/4th, we can pick either of these CBs in the second while scoring more picks.

As for Safety, draft one of Kam Kinchens, Tyler Nubin, Jaden Hicks, Calen Bullock in 2nd or 3rd round. Maybe Kitan Oladapo, James Williams, or Josh Proctor later.

Sign FA Safety Jeremy Chinn-Carolina or Whitehead-Jets or Kurl-Redskins. Any of them would be an upgrade and not expensive. I would love for Chinn to be a Packer. 6'3 220lbs and runs 4.45. Wow!

DB room rebuilt.
