I hear your pass protection is hurting. Plugging jake in would give you a shot in the playoffs. He's an all pro and would immediately improve your OL.

Absolutely not. No need to give up a good target plus a high pick for a LT when we have a 1st round one still recovering who was never even given a chance yet. Plus we need to pay our own guys. Not realistic at all for us.

I'm not sure I like it, even then.

Yes Jake Long is a pretty decent T, but James Jones could start at WR for probably about half the league, AND a second, just doesn't make sense unless it's a move of pure desperation. They still have Sherrod who hasn't even really gotten a shot yet and could very well be the long term answer there, so a move like this just doesn't make sense to me.

Yeah - take away the only WR that has consistently made plays for the team. Jones stepping up makes Jennings expendable IMO. If Cobb and Jones step up in a big way then why pay Jennings 10+ million?

Add to the scenario that Driver is likely gone after this season and Jennings has a very real possibility of leaving in FA. Trade Jones and it's possible you're left with a WR corps of Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Jarrett Boykin going into next year. Not good.

Why the hell would the Dolphins do this Laughing Keenan Allen>>Jones. They could just draft him and not lose their elite LT...

I'd be more willing to consider trading Jones for good picks or a decent player straight up, as long as it doesn't come with a huge contract price tag.

Jennings being hurt and Jones stepping up is what changed the equation.

The only reason any Packer fan should say no to this trade is because of salary cap implications. Other than that, clearly having an elite LT trumps a WR who normally has been at best the #4 or #5 option on the field. This year he has stepped up, but Jones has been in the league long enough for teams to know what he is. A talented, but inconsistent WR who doesn't show up every game.

Y'all bess be trollin'.

Everyone would do this trade. Everyone but Miami.

Elite LT for a #2 receiver and a 50-64 pick? Did Long kill a guy?
