Not that we need another WR....
Dang, who's wheaties did he pee in? I mean, why else would they do this going into the second week of pre-season?
Chances are either he's due a bonus sometime soon, or the Packers are just trying to dump him before the regular season. I believe if he were to be on the opening day roster that the Packers would be on the hook for his salary for the season ($1.8 mill). Attempting to trade him seems kind of odd though after making it clear you weren't going to have him as a member of your organization any longer. Kind of minimizes any trade value he would've had although it might have been slim to none to begin with. Just cut him loose and be done with it.
Robert Ferguson is on his way out of Green Bay....
Profootballtalk.com is reporting that Ferguson may be on his way to Houston given his connection to Mike Sherman who drafted him in the 2nd round when he was HC for the Packers. Ferguson is a former Aggie as well...
I dont think we have room for him to be honest.
Wow, after the draft we were discussing the lack of competition at the wide receiver spot... now our cup runneth over.
He has some bright spots and I don't doubt his ability, but how healthy is he now and how long can he stay healthy?
I want to trade in some of our question marks for exclamation points.
I like the receivers we have now on this team. I don't want another person that may take away from JJ or Mathis. I really believe that JJ and Mathis are your second and third receivers on this team.
I would pass on him as well.
And out from left field comes a shaky curve ball from the fat man in funny pants...
Well looks like my picking up Donald Driver for my FF team is a better pick up than I thought.
Serously though. I don't really know enough about his skill set to say yeah or nay, but I like the idea of Jacoby being able to step up into the #2 spot beside AJ. There could be something else going on with Ferguson that isn't being reported. How is his work ethic? How is he as a team mate? If it's all about the money, we don't have much to spend anyway.
The guy is an injury waiting to happen...again.. and we have that guy already...Mathis...so I think this isn't a possibility.
How come we can go from "It's training camp. The more players the better the competition" to "We do not have room. I like our players"? My position on an earlier thread was "unless a player is a clear cut above what we have, let's give those on the roster more reps."
No thanks. If we do pick him up i'd prefer us to wait until they deceide to outright release him.
I thought he was a bungled pick by the Packers then and i still have thought they passed up a lot on the board to acquire a guy who had one solid year at A&M. Ouch on Chris Chambers.
Ferguson is a fellow Spring Woods HS alum, but I don't think he is what this team needs.
Even though the guy may be talented there are just some players who don't thrive well in systems where their touches would be limited...
Unless something happens to one of the top 4 receivers during PS, I don't think we need him. I don't think he would be an improvement over who we have now. JMHO!
Hey, if he's good, we can always cut BVP to make room for him.
He is an Aggie.............
I am all for the more competition the better
we still have a long ways to go to become one of the elite teams
just released by the Pack should we try to get him we need
all the wideout help we can get.
