Default GB illegally talking to HOU C Myers

http://www.rotoworld.com/headlines/n...-headlines?r=1

@Rotoworld_FB
Report: Packers flirting with center Myers dlvr.it/1FbRYB



The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Packers discussed free agent C Chris Myers with his representatives "in one of the technically illegal but nonetheless widespread meetings" at the Combine.
The Journal-Sentinel's venerable NFL writer, Bob McGinn, insists nearly every re-signing and free agent signing in March "germinates" from the "supposedly illegal cub-agent meetings in Indy." Pro Football Focus' top-rated 2011 center, Myers makes sense for Green Bay as a replacement for fellow under-sized zone-blocker Scott Wells. It's conceivable that sources leaked the talks to tempt Wells into lowering his reported $7.5 million asking price.

I think they should hand us their first round pick for such a travesty.

Didn't Schaub and the Texans beat Rodgers and the Packers the last time they played? I remember the Texans rolling up over 500 yards of total offense at Lambaeu Field. I'm excited that they play in Reliant this season.

Schaub holds the record for most passing yards by a visiting QB in Lambeau and it was the coldest game played that season. But he is a suck system QB.

Default Re: GB illegally talking to HOU C Myers

Am I the only one that thinks Myers is leaving for "greener" pastures? That was a joke not a packers joke....

If I can find the link I'll post it but when he was traded he didn't sound thrilled about being in Houston, I don't think he wanted to leave Denver. Then we ripped him a new one for the better part of 2 years and now? He's probably gonna get an offer from Oakland (Knapp), probably get one from Shanahan unless they have a C already, Green Bay and let's not forget he's from Miami....

And Houston is up against the salary cap. He might pull a Vonta. Make a probowl then make some scrilla elsewhere.

If that wasn't what you were referring to then put me right but I'll try and have a crack at explaining it;

Basically, they all know that as soon as FA starts it becomes a free-for-all to sign the guy, your offer of a visit gets chucked in the pile with every other team in need of the #1 ranked center in the league.

What if they schedule your visit just after the visit with Washington, but the Redskins make a great impression on the guy you're after and the money they offer is over what he expected to be offered, and he's already signed on the dotted line before you even get to speak with him?

What if his current team (in this case us) is his only real interest and you spend your time putting aside a boatload of cash to pursue him, lose your current center who's also pretty good and end up in a bind yourself?

There are a lot of positives to talking to prospective free agents before anyone is allowed to that could be as much as securing his services ahead of time all the way down to simply finding out that it isn't worth your time and effort to pursue him when FA does start.

All fine and good but still not worth the trouble though IMHO.

Well, that's IF Konz is even still on the board at #26. Some teams are not going to draft the sexy pick (QB, WR, RB, CB, S, etc.) and at that point a guy like Konz could be on somebody's radar.

IF we lost Myers and needed a quality long-term center, is Konz that guy? Is a Day 1 starter like a JJ Watt was last year? If he's THAT good, teams will be gunning for him. Will Smithiak be willing to trade up for him IF he's that good and IF he's a hot commodity on draft day? Lots of "if's" going on, for sure.

These guys are trying to put their toe on the line, and even dangle it OVER the line if it means they get an edge on the competition. Happens all the time. It's the old "if you're not cheating, you're not trying" approach. Is it worth it? Probably not. Is somebody foolish enough to try it? Absolutely.

I'd love it if Green Bay got popped for tampering, but I doubt it happens. All teams, to a degree, do a little toe-dangling on this issue. I would imagine that the Texans have let Green Bay's people know that it's onto them and any more of this type of stuff will not be tolerated. Texans are onto this, for sure--Bob McNair, IIRC, personally initiated a meeting with Goodell over the whole Brian Cushing saga, I'd imagine they've gone to bat with the League Office over the Chris Myers/Green Bay thing too.
