Fishing For Compensation…is TT Finished in Free Agency?

  8 months ago     133 Views     2 Comments  

In an off-season that can be described as "busy" by Ted Thompson's standards, the team has still seen more players leave than sign. The defense will benefit from Davon House but he certainly isn't a playmaker and the young pups Randall, Rollins, and Gunter will push him. The biggest signing was on the offensive side of the ball and with Marellus Bennett, but that meant passing on Jared Cook, who presumably will get a contract elsewhere eventually, the Packers are in a position to make a haul in the compensatory draft pick realm in 2018. I made a bet that…

R&R Free Agency

I've not written a post for a while but feel the need to vent, All the chatter about Thompson dabbling in free agency has me thinking could this be the year?
