Daily Tap: Nelson Leaves; Graham & Mo Arrive
Jordy Nelson gets released (2-11 mins) Move had to be done for the Packers to free up room. Need to understand that the Packers need to get faster and more athletic for today’s NFL. Jordy lost a step. He became a glorified tight end with amazing red zone abilities. Gutekunst will be judged the most harshly on this one. Jimmy Graham Arrives (11-15) Packers will try yet again with a physical, big tight end. Graham is easily the best one of the bunch
The blocking aspect of his game doesn’t concern me. Still think Green Bay should go after a tight end in the draft. M
Muhammad Wilkerson also arrives (15-19) Mike Pettine’s first move but huge sign for the GB front office. Deal is about as cheap as you can get for a Pro Bowl talent. Daniels helped close the deal, and that d-line is going to be fierce Lowry can still have an impact. Around the NFC North (19-24 mins) Bears revamp their offense with Robinson, Gabriel, Burton. Keep Prince. The Bears hype will be real next season Vikings get Kirk Cousins – 84 million fully guaranteed. We’ll see how this affects the rest of their offseason Lions miss out on another NE corner, this time Malcolm Butler, but goes to same spot. Also lose Ngata who goes to chase a ring.
