SNAKEBIT! Joppru Boselli.

Texans | Joppru Injury Update - from www.KFFL.com

Updating a previous story, ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the injured suffered by Houston Texans TE Bennie Joppru (knee) appears to be a torn ACL. If confirmed, Joppru would likely be sidelined for a third straight season. Joppru will undergo an MRI exam Tuesday, May 17.

Let's hope Casserly makes a deal for Bubba Franks...He's the best TE left on the market, and it's pretty obvious Joppru is never going to play a down for us...

How soon can can we get Franks in here? Seriously, Joppru's career could be over before it even started...

Franks is a transition tag FA, so he can sign an offer sheet with any team until July 22. The Packers would then have 7 days to match the offer. If they don't match, no compensation is given.

I was all for the Texans pursuing Peter Boulware. Now, I think the cap room would be served on Franks. So I was for the Boulware signing...until I was against it. I now have empathy for John Kerry.

Please sign Franks. Our TE situation is very depressing now.

I am for us getting franks now even more than I was before. He has the ability to block and catch . He can take a lot of pressure off our WRs like he did in GB(ferguson, walker, and driver flourished with him there). I really wouldnt mind paying a little more for him to make sure we land him.

He could really help our redzone scoring percentage.

I was just thinking too, I think Green Bay is having some cap problems which could help us if we decide to go after Franks. I say we make Franks a good offer, nothing too crazy though...Man we need a TE... :brickwall

What were Franks stats last year? I mean would we be signing him in a long-term situation or a temporary fix?

Yeah but it's gonna be hard for him to sit out all season even though he knows he's going to need to. He's gonna wanna be out there with the rest playing, i know been there done that. It's hard to just be the one on the sidelines watching others play or do what you love.

Just a thought: If im not mistaken he is from the "U" and AJ and PBuch could really help the negotiations

Bubba Franks:

Has never missed a game as a pro, seeing action in 64 straight contests (69 including playoffs)
Including his scoring pass in 2002, it marked the first time since 1991 that three Packers threw for touchdown (also Brett Favre and Doug Pederson) in a season
Fourth tight end in Packers history to be named to the Pro Bowl joining Ron Kramer (1962), Paul Coffman (1982-84) and Mark Chmura (1995, 1997-98)
Interestingly, his first touchdown receptions as a collegian (in 1997 at Pittsburgh) and in the professional ranks (in 2000 at Tampa Bay) came on fake field goal attempts
Was only the third tight ever drafted by Green Bay in the first round - and the first in 30 years (Rich McGeorge in 1970 being the last) - when the Packers tabbed him 14th overall in 2000
Caught a 20-yard pass from President of the United States George W. Bush, like him a West Texas native, when the then-Texas governor made a surprise visit to a Packers practice Sept. 28, 2000, during his presidential campaign
While in college, he worked as a caddy at LaGorce Country Club in Miami Beach during the summer months

I sure do look forward to the day when Billy Miller can't make this team. No offense intended, but he's not an NFL caliber TE and yet, I'm afraid this is going to be the 4th consecutive season where I watch him play quite a bit for my team.

Man Joppru has the worst luck, but as for Franks I say we go for him. Hes like 6'5" 260lbs, thats like combining Billy Miller and Seth Wand.
