I will be curious to find out what they got. I was expecting this as a strong possibility after they traded for Kizer. I would have rather kept both around and evaluate how each develops a little longer. You had two backups who both had received a fair amount of real game experience.

Looks like 6th rounder

Thoughts on the game... First off Mack is really good and it sucks we had a shot at him and he ended up with the Bears.  Definitely changed the game plan for the team.  It should have changed qui

I just wanted to share a story for all you Packers fans.   I'm from Aaron Rodgers hometown and went to the same high school.  He's regularly helped with paying for kids uniforms etc and this year both

Breaking news, Clay Matthews just got flagged for roughing the passer in the Bills game. The penalty will be assessed on the opening kickoff.

The #Packers and QB Aaron Rodgers have agreed to terms on a 4-year extension worth $134M, source said. He gets more than $80M by March. A huge first year payout for their star

That is some serious money. I'd love to see more specifics on it, $80M by next March sounds bonkers.

So much for trading for Mack!  

$33M/year during his twilight years (age 37-40) is massive but it's still only 18% of the yearly cap space.  For the best QB in the league, I'll take it.

I guess I'm not quite following.  It's a 4 year extension worth $134m ($33m a year)....but that starts in 2020, and goes through 2023.  He's still playing out the next two years of his current deal, both years around $20m a year. 

How does this $80m by March come into play?  That's $60m more than he was going to get anyway, so that's got to come out of the $134m, taking it down to ~$74m to be paid out over those 4 years.....taking him to under $20m a year for those years.

It depends how they structured it. $20M this year's salary + $60M signing bonus would be $80M by March.

Although I'm not sure why you would give a huge signing bonus if you were guaranteeing most of the contract - that makes it so you have to pay it now vs later and amortize over the next five years (immediately after paying it).  They'd be better keeping the cap hit to $20M the next two years and load up on some talent for a final run.

Non-Rodgers note ....

Seems like there's a very real chance that Cobb gets cut. Allison has flourished, they have Graham and Adams making big money, and used numerous draft picks on WRs they can develop ... and Rodgers makes the WRs, not the other way around ... why do they need Cobb for another year? He's not going to be on the team next year, anyway. Why not save $8M in cash and 9.6M in cap hit and dump him now?

Cobb has the 2nd highest cap hit of anyone on the team. That's not right.

Dump Cobb and Matthews and use that $20M this year to trade for Mack!

Cobb and Matthews will help them win a title this year.   And then next year they will be gone.

This.  I guess I wouldn't be surprised to see them cut one or both but I think Clay isn't going anywhere.  I could see them trading Cobb and getting some sort of return on him - but if they can't trade him I suspect they will keep him this season and get their money's worth.

Yeah I agree with this. They aren't in salary cap trouble for this year, so why cut Cobb? 

 

Are Clay and Cobb being over paid? certainly. But until it's a problem, don't mess with it. They serve a purpose. We are paying them more than they deserve for the roles they have, but that goes away next year. 

 

ETA: I could see them doing with Cobb what they did with Hawk previously- cut and resign.

But McCarthy was a believer in him...

 

 

Glad to see him go. Hope they got more than a conditional 7th for him. 

 

Word is they were offered something in the 5th-7th range for Huntley during the draft.  I'm guessing a conditional 6th (if Huntley is on the SEA roster next year).  Better than nothing if they were going to cut him anyway.

i'm shocked about them carrying Tim Doyle. He seems no threat at all to be poached by another team. And we have a lot invested in our immediate backup. Why carry him on the active roster?  Waste of a 53-man spot, imo.

He might just go to the 53-man but be one of the 10 inactive on game day (I think only ~43 are active on game day).

I think they still feel the pain of losing Hill after they put him on the PS. He was clearly better than Hundley, they gambled and lost and it cost them the playoffs last year. They see a ton of potential in Boyle.

I think there is little interest in Cobb due to his salary, not because he is injured.  If Cobb gets traded, does Geronimo become the other starting wide receiver for sure?  Seems like there's so many of them. 

Anybody think Ty Montgomery gets back to playing WR?

To bad they don't reward Lombardi Trophies to the team with the highest paid player.  They still have to earn it. Now Aaron, go out and earn another, this year for starters.

To be fair, they would have won another SB if Bostick doesn't botch an onside kick recovery

I will never get over this .. they were clearly the best team in the league that year. They went to SEA during the prime Legion of Boom years and were up two TDs with 2 minutes left in the game. They dominated the whole game.  Just unreal they didn't win that. So few injuries, dominant offense/defense. That was the 2nd SB year.

F***** Bostick.

That or Rip returning? Would they bring him back (I know they have kerridge on the practice squad). Depth and can block and run short yardage if there is an injury to Montgomery or Williams.  Also did special teams.

Though I suspect a back with possible return skills.

I'm hoping they bring back Rip. I'd like to see Wadley TBH
