Default Re: GB illegally talking to HOU C Myers

I'd really love for Myers to stay around, but if he doesn't you've really got to think interior line help moves to the forefront of draft day concerns. If I'm Myers I'm looking around for teams that have good guard play anda zone scheme. He's not big enough to hold the point of attack at center in a power man scheme. If team are asking him to do so, they'll be disappointed. He's great in space though.

I'm ok with Brisiel leaving, though I'd also like to see him stay for continuity reasons. He's had such an up and down time here.

I really have to credit the work John Benton has done here. I think he's done a good job working with what he's been giving. I'd really like to see what he could do with some elite talent in the middle of the line.

Also curious to see what a healthy Shelley Smith could be capable of.

Caldwell was an All-American at center but hasn't seemed to catch on at guard. Perhaps a move back to center is just better suited for him?

Really good point.

At one time:
A) No one wanted our players, and;
B) No one wanted to come here.

Now teams are "batting their eyelashes" and we're scoring some pretty good FA's (i.e. JJo and Manning)...

Losing two 5ths of the best OL in the NFL is not good.

Hopefully MW gets re-signed with the $$$$ saved.

Everybody should be worried since the OL has played together for a long time and relies on chemistry and timing. Everybody should be worried if both Myers and Briesel walk.

I'm not talking about anybody in particular.

Losing Myers and Briesel would be a major setback for the team as a whole. The OL was the strength of the team along with the LB's last yr. IMHO

I hope that the Packers are using Myers as leverage to re-sign Wells.

They can afford to lose Myers (it would hurt more) or Briesel (still would hurt) But losing both would be terrible.

Ricks going to have to earn his $$$$ this offseason and next offseason. How good of a job he does will shape this franchise for the next decade. IMHO

Especially since the zone blocking scheme can take some time to master and this line is finally working great together. I want to see it back, in its entirety next year. We are a running football team and need them to stay together. With new blood it could get real ugly.

I'd pay them and just let Mario walk because they mean much more to the zone blocking than Mario is to the defense IMHO.

Default Re: GB illegally talking to HOU C Myers

Here are the steps:

1. Let Mario walk. We simply cannot afford to pay him top dollar.
2. Sign Foster to a reasonable contract. Say 6 mill per year for 5 years.
3. Slap the franchise tag on Myers. A center franchise tag is not too bad and it will allow time to work out a longer term deal.
4. While Myers is under franchise tag resign Briesel.
5. With Briesel and Foster signed, work out longer deal for Myers.

All offensive lineman have the same value. This year it will cost $9.4 million to F tag Myers. That's too much for him obviously.

Yep, they have the ol as a whole. He's going to get some action. Until the texans redo sme come contracts prior to free agency,they can't really do anything until free agency starts. Jason brown got 5-35m with 22m signing bonus and 24m in the 1st 2yrs. Mangold got 5-55m. Davis baas of the giants is getting 16.9m in the first 3 yrs. If we kinda split the difference, meyers will get close to what brown got when he was the highest paid. He's better at what he does than maas. 5yrs 30m with 15m g jack.

Aren't all articles about free agency this time of the year speculation with no real facts? The only facts come about when a player actually signs or a team actually places some sort of tag/tender on a player.
