Guion's arrest is just a picture of how quick things change in the NFL. The draft and develop is working and adding a couple of really good FA's helped tremendously this year. I think TT will do his best to keep his own and might pick up another FA gem this year, hopefully an ILBer. I like the sound of Rodgers to Rogers so TE isn't to big of an issue IMO.

Well as a rookie he has a lot of room for improvement. Also he has decent speed, he played WR in college. How fast is Gronk? I don't see any reason why he can't stretch the field next year.

Gronk is an amazing talent. He doesn't look that fast. But speed isn't everything in football. The combine can't test guys for real football situations. Seen plenty of duds come out of the combine that were picked way to high just because speed and strong arms.

Agree completely, Danny. I like Rodgers, but his ceiling is probably #2 TE. He can be a possession type of receiver and we can hope that he will learn to block. He showed some improvement in blocking, but he has a ways to go there still. I wonder if Hawk can run with him in practice? If so, 'nuff said.

Finley has faded away into oblivion. Haven't heard anything about him in some time. Career officially over?

As long as Rodgers can hold on to key third down conversions or red zone throws then that's fine . The Packers have plenty of other options to move the ball downfield.
