Comments on: Williams Apparently Did Sign http://totalpackers.com/2010/06/16/williams-apparently-did-sign/ Your Green Bay Packers: Telling It Like It Is Wed, 01 Jul 2015 20:13:39 +0000 hourly 1 By: RayV#7 http://totalpackers.com/2010/06/16/williams-apparently-did-sign/#comment-6923 Thu, 17 Jun 2010 15:01:56 +0000 http://www.totalpackers.com/?p=5603#comment-6923 Abe, you could be right, i mean Ted Thompson never spends any money on free agents but remember that first free agent he signed? thats rite, he signed Charles Woodson and for a big contract too so who knows, Ted might take his head out of his ass and spend some money here but like you said, its highly unlikely. But then again, we are significantly under the salary cap and its an uncapped year so maybe Ted will do something but what are the odds? lol and yea Otogwe plays the same position but couldnt he make the switch to SS? its a possibility! another possibility is that we trade for Nnamdi Asomugha, he is on the trading block and i mean having him opposite Charles Woodson would be scary and i wouldnt mind sending a 2nd and 4th rounders for him but then again, im not Ted Thompson so its probably not gonna happen, lol

I just can’t fathom why they don’t understand this. Ron Wolf and Bob Harlan got it. Their tactful and succinct communication skills were a big reason they were so highly regarded. Thompson just not getting it only contributes to fans general dislike for him. They don’t even have to do it openly, any idiot could see this coming and when they got the Williams tender back they could have just “leaked”it. It happens all the time in the media.

Trade for Atogwe immediately!! Good call RayV#7, he is much better and you could offer a compensatory draft pick and the rights to Bigby. Sending him to purgatory as punishment for his discretions.

It goes without saying that TT will not spend a lot of cash on a guy that’s not his. It’s not like he’s a bargain like Bigby. So, to say trade Bigby, even if we could get something for him, and sign Atogwe is not exactly an apples to apples comparison.

Plus, I could be wrong here, but doesn’t Atogwe play the same position as Collins? We need more of a strong safety, rather than a free safety.

All that being said, I agree with you and Monty – Bigby and his agent are idiots. They drafted Burnett his replacement. To not show up is like asking to be cut.

If i was Bigby, i would settle for a reasonable salary, and get on the field as soon as possible. I wouldnt let a rookie take my job away from me and i would be anxious to help my team win a Superbowl, which the Packers are legit contenders. But it all starts somewhere and that somewhere is OTAs and Training Camp!
