i just don't see why he'd sign with detroit at all. not even being a jerk, but what's the point. it's cold weather and a team that let's be honest, isn't a super bowl contender next year. let's remember, he prolly would've been a tampa bay buc if they offered to keep him at CB instead of S. luckily things worked out, and he fell in love here, but overall, i know weather is important to him.

lis before, unless it's like the patriots or giants or something, can't see him signing with a cold weather team that has no realistic shot of winning the whole thing next year.

My guess is it would take significantly more money + a contender to sign with someone else IF WE EXTENDED an offer.


Yep. And I don't see how we don't extend him an offer.

I'll be rather surprised if we do. If you read TT's statement regarding Charles it seemed to say "Thanks and good luck". For a team in need of speed on our defense resigning CW isn't a step in that direction. Neutral

Saints need S help.

unfortunately, they also need cap help.


Green Bay's biggest need is safety help.

Should tell ya something Wink


...That Rodgers is going to get another contract soon. That's what it says.


Well, the safety situation has absolutely nothing to do with that fact. Rodgers being the best player in the NFL and making half of what the top QBs does.

I understand what you're alluding to, but Woodson had only one more year while Rodgers has 2, so essentially GB could have kept Woody and gotten his $10million off the books in time to extend Rodgers a full year before his contract runs out too.

Woodson just isn't that good anymore. He's an in the box safety that's a liability covering the slot.


Actually, the best player in the NFL this year was wearing a PURPLE jersey with the number 28 on it. Wink

Rodgers is way underpaid though. I think Ted is going to go into mourning after Rogers signs his next contract.

Regarding Woodson, even though he has lost a couple of steps, I'll be glad to see him go. He has made a ton of plays on us during his years in Green Bay. He has had a great career and will end up in the Hall of Fame for sure.

I don't blame the Packers for letting him go though. He's getting older, making a lot of money, and the team would benefit more from having the cap space that he's taking up.
