    FFLW reports: "FFLW is reporting that the Packers are rumored to be the likely landing spot for Chargers RB Michael Turner. Strong sources are saying that the deal will include the first round pick for 2008."

    Take it for what its worth...

    If this were to happen it would be great news as who is to say that the Packers won't have one of the worst records in the league should something happen to ironman Brett "gramps" Favre. Next year's draft should have quality firsts, all the way through to around the 25th overall selection. If Green Bay keeps their 2007 1st rounder look for them to take Justin Harrell.

    If the Packers get Turner they're pretty solid. Especially if they keep their 1st rounder this year and draft defense.

    This deal would hurt us to much in the short run, I dont think AJ will like it.

    What sounds better. A first rounder in 2008 or a late 3rd rounder in 2009.

    What sounds better to me is a 1st this year and a 4th or 5th next year. I'd be stoked to get that.

    But I think the Packers are contenders in the NFC North, all they need to do is win 9 games to make the playoffs and before you know it instead of getting a 16 this year we'll get a 25 next year.

    Oh, and then you add the fact that we wouldnt benefit from the Turner trade at all this year during our Super Bowl run.
    Simlply a 1st next year is no where near enough.

    considering the packers play in the nfc turner could end up being a 25+ first pick in '08 (yeah its the nfc) that could suck! considering its turners first draft with a.j. and turner is involved turner might be confused with turner you know what i mean???:icon_shrug:

    Exactly. Turner + a decent draft on the defensive side could turn this team into contenders in the weak NFC.

    I suspected the Packers would be lying in the weeds to pounce.

    Michael Turner will be a Green Bay Packer. We will swap places in the first round and get their 3rd round pick conditionally next year if Turner busts 1,000 yards otherwise we get a 4th next year.

    That is my story before I split here in a few minutes.

    Unless it is because he would be going to an NFC team, why would you wait untill next years #1, and you do not know what position that would be, or you can get this years #1, and know exactly what position you would be drafting in.
