Packers cornerback Tramon Williams makes a pick against the Giants

There’s another surprise suitor for cornerback Tramon Williams — the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints appear to be the most serious suitor for Williams yet. He’s visiting New Orleans Tuesday night.

This development presents the very real possibility that the Green Bay Packers could lose both of their free agent cornerbacks. Early Tuesday, career backup Davon House signed a ludicrous deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars that averages $6.25 million a year.

Although the Packers have offered Williams a deal (two years, $8 million), he has rejected it. Word is, Tramon wants a third year and a good deal of guaranteed money.

We’d say he can have one or the other. Not both.

Even if they lose Williams, the Packers aren’t out of options just yet. Slot corner Casey Hayward insists he’s capable of playing outside. However, based on his god-awful tackling ability, we might disagree.

There are a couple intriguing free agents available as well.

They are Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, both of whom played for the Patriots last season.

You’re laughing at the notion of Ted Thompson signing an outside free agent, especially a big ticket one like Revis, we know.

Well, get ready to clean out your drawers!

That doesn’t mean the Packers will actually do anything besides express interest and then sit around with their thumbs up their asses, but I think we can all agree. Darrelle Revis would make a nice replacement for Tramon Williams.

    You let Casey Hayward play. You drafted him in the 2nd round and this is his opportunity. He knows a big contract could be waiting for him if he performs, so he should be motivated.
    Like others, I have my concerns with him, but we really don’t know how he’ll be in the outside since he rarely played there. One thing is for sure- you’ll be drafting for that position again.

    Revis had his agent call Ted and hear the Packers offer for a laugh.

    Move Hyde back to corner and draft another safety.

    Let Ha Ha take Williams spot and Richards or Bango fight it out for the open spot.

    Jesus Christ I’m glad you dips don’t run our team. Turn a second year safety into an outside CB? Turn Hyde and his lack of speed back into a CB? Oi, draft and develop boys, draft and develop. BTW I’m a huge Tramon fan, I hope we resign him.

    I didn’t say anything about Hyde , and I would love to have Williams back but not for the three years he wants and not for more than the Packers offered. What was that 4 mil. , so bring him back for 4.5 , I do agree with you about draft and develop but you can’t let 1 player hold you hostage. If he doesn’t like the deal OK.
