Cook, coupled with physical gifts could at least run down the seam and jump for the ball. Why couldn't we be patient and wait for Cook price to come down?

If we don't get Cook then that's fine...just draft one of the many talented prospects instead to backup Bennett.

The Packers only dip into free agency to get the very best talents. Woodson, Pickett, Peppers, Bennett. That is an excellent way of improving the roster. Kendricks on the other hand isnt an improvement.


I think you are clueless. For a backup TE, what more do you want? The guy can help spread the field. I can't remember us having a better #2 TE since we had Chewy and Keith Jackson. Honestly get a clue. And it's being reported that Cook's agent was a jag and jockeyed his way right out of Green Bay. I'm proud of how Ted maneuvered this one!

4.57 with a 38 1/2 inch vert is not being able.to run and jump? Laughing

Put on the tape. he can't run and jump. He's very pedestrian.


Given the fact you Kendricks is competing against Richard Rodgers really doesn't help your case bud that Kendricks isn't a good athlete, lol.

Didn't see this coming. Even with Bennett, GB's depth at TE was....uh, not very good. This addresses that

GB can now go in to the draft without having to draft a TE this year


I love the fact we just totally shored up a position and can move on from it.

He may not be the best pass catching TE in the world but he's gotta be a better blocker than RichRod is. I'm not complaining to loudly because we have Bennett starting.

Gotta think it's pretty cheap or just a 1 year deal given we haven't heard a peep.

Let's leave the sexual innuendos at home.

I just wish it wasn't absolutely impossible for Kendricks to become a seam weapon. I just wish it wasn't absolutely impossible Kendricks could be anything but a short yardage guy. It's too bad because it looks like he's going to be an okay #2 tight end and nothing more. Bummer.

His career Y/R is exactly the same as Bennett's and .04 lower than Jordan Reed's.

Don't post much but I couldn't resist. What's not to like about this signing?
Once we see the dollar details then we can have a reaction. Can't imagine he broke the Packer bank to sign. This now allows the Packers to get onto bigger fish to fry for next season. We have signed 2 outstanding players and a pretty decent one for absolutely SWEET contract deals. Good gosh people, get a grip!

^I don't know if you're referring to me or not, but I was joking. Other fans are saying that Kendricks can't possibly be anything more than a short range option for us. I disagree. I think every Packer fan likes or loves this signing.

He seems able to get more Yac than Rodgers who's primarily a short yardage TE Bubba Frank's 2.0 who gives you zero Yac.

No HZ, I wasn't referring to you. Just my overall opinion on the situation.
