Josh Sitton: It Wasn’t About the Contract

Josh Sitton is now a former Green Bay Packer and a free agent. The Packers reportedly tried to trade Sitton, a three-time Pro Bowler, before releasing him today.

Why would they do such a thing?

There was a report that the decision was contract-related. That Sitton was displeased that the Packers were focusing on extending other players before addressing his deal, which expired after the season.

Sitton says that wasn’t the case.

“I was prepared to play the season,” Sitton told PackersNews.com. “I have no hard feelings whatsoever. They’re comfortable with who they have. They weren’t planning on going forward with me.

“That’s business. I’m sad to leave. I’m excited about new opportunities.”

So why then, did the Packers decide to part ways with Sitton.

The most obvious answer is it saves them a significant amount of money. They’ll get more than $6 million of cap space by releasing Sitton. His contract had just $300,000 in dead money.

The Packers obviously decided they weren’t going to re-sign Sitton when his contract did expire. They also have several younger players they want to extend. This move gives them more flexibility to make those deals now or during the season.

J.C. Tretter, David Bakhtiari and Eddie Lacy could be on that list.

It’s still hard to believe the Packers couldn’t find a trade partner for Sitton. There’s already significant interest in him on the open market. A trade would have resulted in the same cap savings.

And that’s what makes this move so completely idiotic. The Packers will get nothing for a three-time second-team All Pro.

Had they just kept him this season and let him depart as a free agent, they likely would have received a third or fourth-round compensatory selection.

So way to go, dipshits!

    Looking toward the future?what about winning a super bowl now!isnt that what the objective is every year?

    1. Icebowl September 5, 2016

      Just heard Sitton signed w Bears….
      Great move by TT….

  2. MMTTDCSUCK September 3, 2016

    Watch Sitton sign with the Vikings, give them all of the nuances and pro’s and con’s of the offense. TT you are a genius . . .

    1. PF4L September 3, 2016

      It’s a shame the President of the Packers doesn’t have any rocks. But it should come as no surprise, as Murphy doesn’t interfere or even question anything Ted does. Someone should explain to Mark Murphy that overseeing Ted doing his job duties, is actually HIS job. Green Bay is turning back into the old boys club that it was in the 70,80’s where no one needed to be accountable.

      1. MMTTDCSUCK September 3, 2016

        Yep!

    2. Icebowl September 3, 2016

      Im sure Bert has already gotten Queens on phone w Josh….

      1. Empacador September 4, 2016

        Favre probably regards himself high enough that he thinks he will take over for Goodell so he can REALLY stick it to the Packers year in and year out!

    3. Icebowl September 5, 2016

      Right division MM…..
      Wrong team…..
      Just heard Sitton signed w Bears…
      Fox and Co. get the GB playbook as a bonus….
      Short-sighted move by TT…..
      Can’t believe they didn’t think this would happen…

  3. PF4L September 3, 2016

    I can’t express strongly enough to you guys, the contentment i have for Thompson right now.

    Even if, the intent, was to free up cap space to sign others to long term deals. It’s a dumbfucking move.

    You have your offense coming back together, you sign what hopes to be the answer at tight end. The defense looks like it will be better, especially in the secondary as rookies have a year under their belts. So it wasn’t wrong to have idea’s of a Super Bowl run this year.

    So…..What does Ted do right before the start of the regular season? Release your best offensive lineman and get nothing for him, while shrinking what little depth you had.

    Does anybody wonder why we don’t read “In Ted we Trust” anymore? I know Phatgsuz is a big Ted fan. I’d love to hear from him and any other Packer fan Ted supporters on this issue. I’m waiting………….

    1. Phatgzus September 3, 2016

      I’m assuming you meant “contempt”.

      Otherwise I agree with you. I often support TT, mainly because he’s privy to a million times the info and experience I’ll ever be, and more often than not they work out, but this makes absolutely no sense, whatsoever unless Sitton literally can’t/won’t play and his contract would be nothing but an albatross, or they think Lane Taylor or Don Barclay is capable of playing guard at an All-Pro level, or they want to get one or more FA DLs immediately. If none of the above is true then this is by far the most idiotic thing TT has done, including panicking and signing Vince Young and Seneca Wallace.

      1. PF4L September 3, 2016

        What too ya so long?

        1. PF4L September 3, 2016

          *k

        2. Phatgzus September 3, 2016

          Was watching the Badger game. You weren’t?

          1. PF4L September 3, 2016

            Yea i was, unbelievable hey? Thought all was gonna be lost with a field goal, then the pick, then the cheap shot that reminded me instantly of Suh. Be interesting to see what the NCAA does with Boutte. Also amazing, was that everyone was acting like the play was over.

          2. Phatgzus September 4, 2016

            It was. Wisconsin did everything they could to give the game to a clearly overrated LSU team. Props to the D and the Bart Starr namesake for keeping the team in this and staying cool under pressure, respectively. Houston made some very nice throws against an elite college program and looks to have a bright future.

            As for the INT, he was clearly down when he caught it so no surprise from the players not playing it out after the catch. The penalty is one of the dirtiest that I’ve ever seen, dirtier than anything I’ve seen Suh do *though not necessarily cheaper), dude should get a multi=game suspension at the very least, I think a year-long suspension or scholarship forfeiture would be going too far though. We’ll see.

          3. PF4L September 4, 2016

            Is he down, without a defender even touching him?

          4. Phatgzus September 6, 2016

            He is in college.

          5. PF4L September 6, 2016

            Thanks for clearing that up for me.

            I only follow the Badgers and watch a few select college teams, is the down rule different than in the NFL?

      2. PF4L September 3, 2016

        Even if i’m not privy to a million times of info that Ted possesses. If Ted thinks Taylor and/or Barclay is capable of playing ANY position at a Pro Bowl level. That alone is grounds for termination.

        1. MMTTDCSUCK September 3, 2016

          This ^^^^^^^^

      3. Empacador September 3, 2016

        Man was I right when I said this would be an interesting weekend. You hit it right on the head with the Vince Young/Seneca Wallace comparison. I thought it was strange, starting with the punters earlier in the week, then seeing they cut Lovato with no replacement. I immediately went back to 2013 and the QB cluster. After I heard Sitton was cut, along with Bradford, who I thought played well enough to stick, and Barrington, as a projected starter, this has turned into one strange day.

      4. Phatgzus September 3, 2016

        If this was solely about saving money for next year’s contract, this will likely go down as an historically idiotic hyperopic move. You want to save money,? Cut Peppers, an older player at a position with less depth. Now we don’t even have Josh Walker as a back-up if anyone gets injured, unless we want him to be our IR returnee. Stop licking toads, please, Ted.

  4. Kato September 3, 2016

    I am a supporter of Ted Thompson, but this. Literally makes zero sense. I am still confused. Especially from a depth standpoint. What bonafide player do they have to take his place?

    1. MMTTDCSUCK September 3, 2016

      None . . . welcome to clarity regarding TT.

  5. ferris September 3, 2016

    The roster now will not be the final 53. Just wait. I don’t understand it but Ted does not care about your opinion so if you don’t like it become a Vikings fan or a fan of whatever team Sitton signs with. I’m recalling the “let Favre compete for the starting job Ted is an idiot people,,,how can they let him go?” It’s still just football.

    1. PF4L September 3, 2016

      So because Ted doesn’t care about our opinion, we can’t have one? And if we don’t like it we should become a Viking fan?

      Who the fuck are you to tell me i can’t have or express my opinion?…… FUCK YOU.

      Fuckin Ted sheep!

      1. MMTTDCSUCK September 3, 2016

        LOL! this AGAIN ^^^^^^^^

    2. Killer September 3, 2016

      Ferris, change your moniker to “Ted Sheep”. Accuracy counts.

    3. Empacador September 4, 2016

      Ferris, you do understand the circumstances right? This is not even remotely the same as Favre trying to force his way to the Vikings in 2008 because he thought he was bigger than the team. And having Rodgers ready to step up. Sitton wasn’t trying to pull that crap, and there is no ready made replacement waiting in the wings here. Yes still just football but still premature to inflict this kind of damage of your own volition when you didn’t need to yet.

  6. Deepsky September 3, 2016

    I don’t get it. There’s a couple NFL Super Bowl borderline quality teams who will improve greatly by having Sitton on their roster. The Vikings and Seahawks for instance.

    And the Packers don’t have anyone to replace him either. Sheesh. Just when you thought the offensive line was stable this year, now we get to look forward to a yippy Rodgers chucking it.

  7. Empacador September 3, 2016

    You know, this also reminds me of the time Ted first became GM in Green Bay. He did the same thing in essence to Wahle and Rivera, except the cutting at the end of training part. Something about being able to find guards anywhere. I wonder what Rodgers thinks about all of this? He had a first row seat watching what occurred when it happened to Favre losing those guys. Maybe R-E-L-A-X part 2 is coming.

    1. Empacador September 3, 2016

      Yeah, front row seat too. Damn spell check or fat fingers.

    2. PF4L September 3, 2016

      Empacador, it’s funny ironic that you brought up Wahle and Rivera. As i first saw the headline about this move, i instantly thought of those two. I can remember everyone losing their shit over that move also, Favre then got ate up that season, one of his worst. I use to think Ted didn’t like overpaying, especially lineman, but he sure has taught me different a handful of times in the last few years.

      1. MMTTDCSUCK September 3, 2016

        TT “The Frugal GM” fuck that fucking fuck . . . Love the LS limbo dance as well . . .

    3. Deepsky September 4, 2016

      In Thompson’s defense, the Seahawks got nothing out of Rivera after signing him and the Cowboys only got a few games out of Wahle.

      1. PF4L September 5, 2016

        In Favre’s defense, the Oline sucked after that move, amiwrong?

  8. Killer September 3, 2016

    What is missed in this is the absolute betrayal o the organization regarding Josh Sitton. He played his heart out. He was dependably dominant. He excelled. He commanded respect from all other teams. He played for the Packers for years without taking PEDs, screwing an underage babysitter, whining, smuggling drugs, or hiding a gun in a flower pot.

    He was playing out a contract he and the team willingly signed. His end of the bargain? Kick ass. He held up that end. What did he get for it? Cut in the final cuts when many teams don’t have salary cap room. Absolute betrayal.

    Cut him after the year (they coudl find out right then if they get anythign in a trade) or before the draft, or even the first week of training camp. If they had he would have gone out there and got a contract for 10 million per year. Now he will be lucky to get 6 million.

    The other players should learn from this — do your job, excel, be a team player, mind your business, do as you are told, make a difference for the team, AND THEN BEND OVER AND GET MOLESTED BY TT AND MM!

    1. Phatgzus September 3, 2016

      Except contracts can be voided at any time if it’s written in, which clearly it it. Welcome to the world of big business, enjoy your Rumspringa.

      1. PF4L September 3, 2016

        Phat……legally voided contract or not, it’s a bad way to do business. And it also sends a real shitty message to the team. That was one fucked up way to fire up a team. Like i’ve said time and time again. I’d buy Ted a plane ticket out of Green Bay, and i’d even help him pack.

        1. MMTTDCSUCK September 3, 2016

          I’ll split the cost of that ticket with you anytime PF4L . . . I would help to slam the door on his ass when he goes out the door if needed . . .

          1. Ted Hawthorne September 3, 2016

            Hell, I’ll throw him out of the plane.

      2. Killer September 3, 2016

        Fatguts, I did not claim that what TT and MM did to Sitton was illegal (though I guess I did COMPARE it to molestation which would be illegal). The move lacks class, wisdom, and honor but, of course, OBVIOUSLY, is not illegal.

        You do this again and again, Fatguts. You re-frame a stand, post, or opinion into something it is not and then attack that thing it is not. Try to stay focused and on point.

        I guess you’ll respond and state this post proves I worked with the Nazis in WWII…..

        1. MMTTDCSUCK September 3, 2016

          Non sequiturs . . . Fat Jebus loves him some non sequiturs . . .

          1. Phatgzus September 3, 2016

            I don’t think you know what a non sequitur is, not surprising really.

        2. Phatgzus September 3, 2016

          Nor did I, never was my point. Reading comprehension, it’s an easily acquired skill-practice.

          1. MMTTDCSUCK September 4, 2016

            Yeah! that’s right! reading comprehension . . . Go read some John Stuart Mill Fat Jebus . . . then we will compare notes; comprehend that. Lol

          2. Phatgzus September 4, 2016

            OK, shoot.

            I’m down to talk about the merits of utilitarianism and social equality any day, as should anyone who cares about society, morality, human nature, etc.

          3. MMTTDCSUCK September 4, 2016

            Lol Fat Jebus! You are so full of shit . . . Part of the reason that I come to this site is to read your retorts. I actually really dug your “TT stop licking toads” line yesterday . . . JSM is an acquired taste, something that you have obviously NOT read . . . my veiled attempt at intellectual sarcasm to you . . . Reference his “On Liberty” as you tend to admonish others in here for their right to their “opinion” no matter it’s value or your disdain for it, or them! or me for that matter! . . . Very dry shit at times. This is not college 101 son. But very good “Liberal” philosophy from looong ago.

          4. Phatgzus September 5, 2016

            1) Oh I understand what the point of your statement is.
            2) Anyone who’s been to high school knows who “JSM” is (LMFAO abbreviating him now, like he’s fucking BNL [I doubt you’ll get the reference]).
            3) What the actual fuck are you trying to say, Gramps? Lay off the donepezil, you’ve had too much.

          5. MMTTDCSUCK September 5, 2016

            Fat Jebus, I believe you know what the fuck I am getting at. Do not act purposefully obtuse. I love it when I get your goat! You pontificating, verbose lickspittle . . . Gramps! I like that! JSM has never been a topic in high school! Especially nowadays. Referencing JSM was to save typing time. BNL? Non sequitur . . . How in the hell is that a comparison? JSM was already a known. BNL? Not, it could reference countless things. Go read your comic books and enjoy your mothers moldy basement . . . Hey! perhaps that is your problem . . . too much black mold will affect your mind . . . Donepezel? I am so sorry that your mother uses it, must be rough on you. Time to move out of that moldy basement. Do not forget to take that foam “seat ring” with you . . . back to Brookhaven

          6. Phatgzus September 6, 2016

            BNL is just as widely known in the public as JSM, THAT’s how common knowledge his existence is.

            FYI, went to two HS’s in two different parts of the country and both spent a week on the philosophy and impact of Mill, Locke, Kant, Paine, Henry, et. al.

            I find it ironic that you claim to have some philosophical education and yet you can’t distinguish a non sequitur from a red herring, even better is your reliance on ad hominems as a crutch.

            Love love LOVE the people who are so ignorant on that which they speak that they blatantly undermine their own stances. By all means keep it coming :).

          7. MMTTDCSUCK September 6, 2016

            “even better is your reliance on ad hominems as a crutch. ” FJ . . . that IS exactly what you do . . .

          8. Phatgzus September 6, 2016

            Uuuuuhhhhhhhh no. I establish a premise, then support said premise, THEN I rip into you like Cartman into a bag of Cheesy Poofs (TM) on his first day back from fat camp.

            I don’t think you know what an ad hominem is either, but thanking you for supporting my latest point. By all means keep on keepin’ on with this cavalcade of ignorance.

    2. PF4L September 3, 2016

      Killer…who keeps putting a nickle in you? This is our team, we got this.

  9. Kato September 3, 2016

    The only things that come to mind, after thinking about this for a while, are maybe his back was worse than the packers were letting on. Two, there was talk about the packers viewing Bahktiari as a guard. Did he ever get reps at guard? Never heard about him playing guard in the preseason. Maybe their thought process is plugging Bahktiari at guard long term and Spriggs swinging to left tackle. Who knows? Still think this was a terrible move.

    1. realityhits September 4, 2016

      Exactly my thoughts. Younger Bak who shined at camp. 12-0. Idk, it’s anyones guess?

  10. Tucson Packer September 3, 2016

    Can we just move Nelson to Guard?

    1. Empacador September 4, 2016

      Don’t you mean Janis? Or maybe Colt Lyerla, current legal problems aside. Lol!

  11. PF4L September 3, 2016

    The Packers are now about 15 million under the cap. This reeks of creating cap room to sign Tretter, Linsley, or TJ Lang this year. Here’s the real story, Ted is trying to fix the problem of having 4 lineman’s contract expiring at the same time. But ….it was a problem he created himself, with no vision. They could have extended somebody last year when they were 7 million under the cap.

    The bottom line was, that it was bad planning. And the cost of that bad planning, is we lose our best O lineman, and it decreases our depth.

    Ted is trying to fix his own fuck up, but by doing so, depletes much needed talent.

    Or…..Big Ted doesn’t think Aaron Rodgers got his ass kicked enough last season.

    1. MMTTDCSUCK September 4, 2016

      How much were they under the cap at the end of the last year? Quite a few million if I recall correctly. TT “The Frugal GM”.

      1. PF4L September 4, 2016

        Like i wrote, about 7 million.

    2. Empacador September 4, 2016

      Well, after re-reading this, one thing is clear. Sitton was the oldest with back issues. Cutting him now saves them cap dollars to do what was already suggested. Sign some of these other O linemen to contracts now. Coupled with the money they will save when they don’t resign Peppers, plus whatever the caps rises to next season all of them will probably be resigned.

      I liked the suggestion (I think Howard made it) about cutting Peppers this year if it came down to money. Charles Woodson got cut and he was arguably playing, and continued to play, at a higher level than Peppers is, so why not start that transition a year early as well?

      1. Howard September 4, 2016

        It was Phatgzus on cutting Peppers. I tried to avoid this subject yesterday as I still think all is not out about this cut. I thought the team was going to have the right mix of veterans, (peppers and Sitton included) and young guys with multiple players hungry for new contracts.

        1. Empacador September 4, 2016

          Thanks for the correction Howard and sorry Phatgzus for not attributing that to you instead.

  12. Zwoeger September 3, 2016

    So now we get a season full of buffoonary with some lunacy mixed in.
    The moment TT got his contract extetenion I knew MM would stay ( and with them the poor medical staff, condition trainers and so on ) and there would probably be no Super Bowl under the old boys club reign.

    1. KG September 4, 2016

      I found out a couple weeks ago that Sittons house was up for sale. You guys think maybe there was something going on behind the scene that we weren’t privy to?

        I’ll admit, I myself am disappointed to see Josh Sitton go, but if all you’re going to do is bitch and whine about everything the organization does, why don’t you go be vikings fans? At least then you would have a reason to hate everything the team does and might actually be smarter than the team executives. The rest of us big boys will support our team and leave the decision making to the guys who earn their living doing it. Now wad up your panties and threaten me again internet tough guy

        1. PF4L September 5, 2016

          Listen closely shit for brains. Even if true. That doesn’t mean shit, shithead. He just got married, shit for brains. What?…..The ONLY reason on earth that he could have for wanting to sell his house is because he knew he would be cut right before the season started? Is that the logic your shit for brains operates under?

          I have an idea, put on your #4 vikings jersey, grab a cookie, and stfu. And don’t write another post unless you have my permission.

          1. KG September 5, 2016

            PF4L, you should maybe have your mommy read my original post to you again. I only implied that maybe because his house was for sale that there might be something going on that we the fans weren’t privy to. So you admitted that what I found might be true and then melted down on me for being right? Having Josh Sitton get cut isn’t the calamity you seem to think it is. Now, if you are forced to repeat the second grade a fourth time, now that would be a calamity. its okay though, the rest of the adults and I will always take care of you. Now run along you little scamp. :)

          2. KG September 5, 2016

            No, you listen to me you worthless cunt. I will come in here and post what I want, when I want. I find your bravado (look it up) laughable considering you have no idea who I am or where I’m from. If you did I am certain that you wouldn’t speak to me like that… not because I am a super tough guy but because you are nothing more than an angry little pussy boy who has nothing better to do than be a nasty useless internet troll. Go suck a dick and crawl back under your rock

            Now that you had your little tantrum…..how about posting something that actually has to do with the subject of football. Now about you not being a tough guy, that i can buy.

            But in the future, try keeping it to football, maybe even contribute something of substance that required thought and intellect. If you insist on hiding behind a new username that’s fine, just try not to blow anymore gaskets with your little tantrums.

            KG, I love it when someone calls someone else a “LIBTARD” It proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that that person has NO ideas’ of his / her own. Just right wing talking points from being in an insular and narrow minded self imposed fear based inculcated world . . . You have now “outed” yourself as a non thinker! Congratulations on your demotion . . . wait . . . FUCKTARD! See this word? No political affiliation! very open! cannot be tied down. Putz

          5. MMTTDCSUCK September 6, 2016

            Yeah right . . . do you project much? When I hold up that mirror you do not like seeing yourself it does eat at you.

        2. MMTTDCSUCK September 5, 2016

          There are PLENTY of things about this team to bitch about. Other teams? usually more! So, with your logic you want all Packer fans to just accept what they do because it is better than other teams? What happened to wanting the best outcome? Would you practice a craft just to get OK at it? Or would you continue to push to be better at it? Fuck your rationale it is full of holes . . .

          1. KG September 5, 2016

            wow… I am totally humbled by your brutal beat down. I do realize at this point that you are obviously a flaming libtard and will bitch no matter what anybody says or does. why don’t you grab your packers woobie and head on over to your safe space where nobody can ever hurt your fragile little feelings again. I’ve been having fun messing with you dicks but dude get a life.

            Seems as though I hit a nerve there doesn’t it? It was pretty easy to figure out where your head is due to your hysterical ranting over a disagreement. I’m done now. GO PACK!

          4. MMTTDCSUCK September 6, 2016

            Redneck . . .

          5. Phatgzus September 6, 2016

            MY word, check out this retard brawl, now this here is some quality entertainment. Fuck football, I want 16+ weeks of this, hold on, boys, no one throw the knockout punch yet, gotta get my popcorn and soda

          6. MMTTDCSUCK September 6, 2016

            PHATGZUS! For one that states that he stays out of name calling you certainly have no problem doing it. Fuck your hypocrisy. I will call you out from now on for your sarcastic shadenfreudist mentality. You must be one unhappy fuck living in your parents basement to be hovering around waiting to call someone names at the drop of a hat. You constantly demean people. You must be some real piece of work. My character flaws have NOTHING on yours you sick fuck. Popcorn and soda? You most likely are morbidly obese as well. And most likely make a living trolling for the Republican party. That would seem to fit your demeanor in here on this blog you know it all wanna be band wagoner.

    This has to be Thompson’s solution for not being able to put Tretter and Linsley on the field at the same time. Both of those guys can play, so probably the Packers are OK for now.

    Problem is, the Packers inevitably will lose one or more tackles like they always do. If they had Sitton, they had options, but now the first tackle that goes down Don Barkley is filling in somewhere on the line.

    KG, you do realize you outed yourself as a troll right? You understand the hypocrisy of calling out someone (“…but because you are nothing more than an angry little pussy boy who has nothing better to do than be a nasty useless internet troll”) and then admitting you are here enjoying yourself “messing with you dicks”, right?

    Once again, per Wikipedia, “In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people, by posting inflammatory,[1] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog) with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion,[3] often for their own amusement.” The last part of the definition [3] is relevant for you outing yourself. Would you like a participation ribbon?

    1. KG September 6, 2016

      Did you really just try to make a point by quoting Wikipedia? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      1. KG September 6, 2016

        The really funny thing here is you are right! I guess I have been trolling you dicks since you all attacked me for my original post. Here’s an idea…. next time somebody says something you don’t agree with why don’t you just say something like “I don’t agree with that”? Might make it a better room and far less volatile. I read Total Packers all the time and very rarely comment because of this sort of thing. This also isn’t the first time you guys have attacked me like this so I probably should have expected it but I guess I gave you too much credit. However, since I still am a huge Packers fan I will probably post something again sometime, maybe you could all just save your vitriol for someone else? Anyways… I’m tired of you guys now so I’m out. Enjoy the season and GO PACK GO!

        1. Empacador September 6, 2016

          So, we’re all dicks, as in guilt by association? Everyone here wasn’t attacking you. Wikipedia definition is just as good as any other definition you can find as you soon realized. At least you admit you were being an asshole. First step to recovery.

  17. PF4L September 6, 2016

    I was being kind of a dick to him, but i can’t really take any personal responsibility. Let’s be honest, it’s Ted’s fault.

    1. Empacador September 6, 2016

      I’m sure he will live as he admitted he was being a douchebag.
