Matt Flynn is as good as gone already. I'm hoping Wells is signed before the 13th. I think the odds of the Packers being outbidded for Wells are high. The rest of the players are not likely to be targeted hard by other teams. The impact of losing any of them is probably minimal. However, I would like to see most of them at camp in the fall.

I think Bush will get some somewhat big offers.Your right though Flynn is gone and he should be, best of luck to him in his new gig.I honestly dont think Wells will be back and def. not for the money he wants,UNLESS Wells goes out there expecting his 7M+ and doesnt get that type of money offered he may be back at GB price.
Otherwise,let him go,Wells isnt worth 7M,not with Even D-S on the roster who can fill in.Id like to see Ryan Grant back but TT can land a big back in the later round and that may be the smart move seeing as we ahve a lot of big names coming up in a few years and need the cap space. So Ill say this,,,I dont believe Wells is worth the 7M or so.Wells is good,but, not worth 7M.
The other 2 Walden had a bad year last year and Howard Green who id like to see back,we can use a big body in the middle but i can see him being offered something.

It's never good to lose promising D-lineman that are familiar with the system. I hope the Packers can keep Green also, but it always comes down to the dollars. Walden did have a bad year, but when he has played well he has been outstanding. I've said myself that Wells is worth 5 to 6 million. I think 7 is high, but I'm still hopeful he can stay. The Packers don't need to be rebuilding at multiple O-line positions. The draft should be used primarily for the defense. There is only so much that can be addressed in the draft.

Enough is enough hey Ted get off your butt and do something our team is not getting any better you need to get a center and say the guy from the raiders to help with our lack of a pass rush if you don't you got to go!!!
