    New general manager Brian Gutekunst said he wants the Green Bay Packers to be involved in just about every free agency deal. So far he’s making good on that promise.

    Former Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson has already visited with the Packers, and now the team has “preliminary interest” in former Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

    Jordy is being released and Apollo is shedding a tear. I just hope the Cowboys don't do the same to Dez.

    Edit* but looks like they're signing Jimmy Graham for 3 years.

    Yeah, I'm not happy about it but I get it. I wonder if restructuring was offered? He's lost a step but can still be a good #2.

    Happy to welcome Graham. He should do great with Rodgers.

    Just reading GB signed Muhammed Wilkerson. Good start to FA for you.

    Nice value as well with the one year prove it deal. Its about time they went all in because Rodgers is well into the back nine of his career.

    The smaller Green Bay market and strong locker room should be good for him.

    It's rare that I agree with this sort of trade. For a top notch QB prospect, sure but for a RB? Not liking it and don't get me wrong, I like Barkley's game.

    The Jets will pick the worst QB of the 4 or 5 top ones and the fan base will be left wondering why they did not take Barkley.

    I'm hoping the Browns take a QB at 1 and then Barkley at 4, just keep him outta the NFC.

    I would bet that maybe one of these QB's turns into anything close to a pro-bowler. I think it's a lot of hype and people wanting them to be the next big thing, rather than them having any real shot. JMO, we've seen it countless times before. Barkley, Chubb, Fitzpatrick and Vita Vea will probably all have better careers than these QB's.

    I donít think any of the QBs really look like Top 5 talent and even debatable whether any are top 10. Jets would be better off with Barkley and rolling with Teddy Bridgewater. A lethal ground game will open things up for a middling QB and build a strong D - look at Jax with Bortles. Not every team can build around a franchise QB and I just donít see the point of trying to force it. Foles, Keenum, etc just proved that you can find capable QBs if you build the right way around them.

    I find it hilarious that every year these scouts and prognosticators and "experts" try to convince themselves that these guys can be the next big thing. I guess it's just the importance of the position, but I think going BPA is the best route most of the time. As long as you have a great defense and a good running game/passing game where the QB isn't TO prone, you have a good shot at winning in this league.

    I think it's like this: you need a good QB to contend. Finding one in FA is almost impossible for most teams. So the only recourse is to lay the money down on the roulette wheel and give it a spin.

    No one thought Carson Wentz was going to be Carson Wentz in 2017 but he did it. I mean he was a high profile QB but he far exceeded expectations last season. So, anything is possible. Some of the QB success comes down to the coach fitting a system to their QB's strengths instead of trying to fit the QB to the system. Foles is a prime example of this. He has been two entirely different players depending on the coach's focus.

    Word is that Dez will be cut after the draft: https://twitter.com/Schultz_Report/s...87010453426177

    Which means their top priority in round one may be a WR. Calvin Ridley maybe? I could see the 49ers going after Dez. They're in the running for most improved team come next winter.

    Its funny this news comes out now as the NFL voted unanimously to change the catch rule. That 2014 catch against my Packers would count today.

    Well see, back in 2014 it was a 4th and 1 and Romo dropped back for a pass that Dez caught on the goal line but the refs screwed us over and called it incomplete.

    Oh you mean cutting Dez? Cause they don't have a QB that can throw the ball to him, so they'd rather save $12.5M in cap space after June 1st - because that's when you really look for cap room...

    I'm not a fan of this and I hope it's not true.

    Why don't they trade him to a talent starving team like the 49ers or Browns? Can you imagine a Josh Gordon/Dez Bryant combo?

    I don't get why teams cut guys instead of trading... I think it has to do with salary cap implications. I don't get that involved lol I just like the on-field stuff.

    As bad as the Browns are, WR probably is their best unit. Donít forget Cory Coleman lit it up before breaking his hand last year.

    He's on my Dynasty club. Good point but they can use all the talent they can get and guys like Dez don't hit the market often.
