Would a trade for future draft picks take Josh Jones' $1.154M salary clean off the books? CB Morris Claiborne, S Tre Boston, S Glover Quinn and S Eric Berry are still available out there, and might make for quality veteran adds to this team.

Claiborne was the Jets top CB last season and he set a career high for PDs. Boston had 10 of his 11 picks over the past 3 seasons. I wouldn't mind that kind of insurance. Can't have too many DBs.

Not sure if they don't think he can play LB effectively or he just didn't want to? Pettine's defense is heavily reliant on Safeties and ILBs playing smart, savvy football...I think that's where Jones seems to struggle. He's aggressive and instinctive, but he's too often either out of position or guessing poorly. I wasn't going to be surprised if he was a training camp casualty anyway, probably a candidate to get shipped somewhere for a conditional late to mid round pick. 

Future considerations.  Is that still a thing?

I’m giddy about early reports out of camp on the OL. Sounds like Turner is the new RG. Starting 5 hasn’t been horrible the last 3 years. But this is the first time in years depth wasn’t a self induced ulcer heading into June. This is a very good OL with versatile depth. And it’s about time. If Spriggs figures it out. Great. If he doesn’t. That’s ok too. But GB doesn’t need Spriggs to figure things out. Maybe Spriggs will figure things out because of it. 

Thought it was interesting GB put a waiver claim on TE Jordan Leggett. Didn’t get him but I’m cautiously optimistic GB has a real plan for the position, how to utilize the position, and RTFB. 

Jim Rome thought he was playing it up for the crowd to make his LT look good. I think I agree. That was a show. 

Rome also asked: What would you rather see during breaks: Hall of Famers slamming beers, or some douchebag musician giving the coach a back rub?

”Milwaukee wins that one hands down.”

 

Oh yeah, I think he played that up a little bit. I doubt Rodgers would be tossing back 12 oz of beer in under 4 seconds but there was definitely some bad acting going on there. 

They gotta figure out a way to get past the Raptors so Bak can throw back 4 at a time. 

Mike Clemens (really good reporter for The Fan) also noted a big change he's already observed watching OTA's open to the media is LaFleur is, wait for it, ready???

Running plays that are SCHEMING WIDE RECEIVERS OPEN. 

What a fuc**** concept. 

MLF is heavily emphasizing timing, timing, timing on these routes. WR is at spot X and Rodgers throws it to where he's going to be.  Rodgers is also staying in the pocket much more. 

Obviously, we'll see where this is at once pads go on but for Lort Jesus if we could have an offense where Rodgers isn't waiting 9 seconds for a guy to get open and just throws the ball in under 3? Amaze balls.

It will work great if Rodgers will make the throw on time. Injury forced him to throw on time against Chicago and it worked well. It wasn't always McCarthy calling slow developing plays. 

I think Rodgers will have to accept an increased risk for interception under this offense. The go/no go decision has to come early in order to eliminate the pass rush as a factor. There will be times when the route is getting blown up as the throw is made. As long as the defense is no longer a grouper sized seine they should be able to survive the occasional INT. Hopefully Rodgers' ego will as well.

Anything injured doesn’t need coaching to fight for survival. It’s instinct. Script is out the window. Coaching is separating execution from survival. Tough to have the latter without the former. 

J'mon Moore will be interesting to watch. Still considered by many to be the most talented between MVS, EQ and him, his confidence and the confidence of #12 just wasn't there last year and he couldn't grasp MM's offense. 

Moore said he definitely went through growing pains as a rookie but learned a lot is a focused player going into this season. He probably has the most pure talent and ability. You'd see him run good routes in TC and PS but then flat out drop the ball right in his hands. 

Can he change that? Will MLF's offense be easier to grasp?
