    Apparently they offered him €6m and the Vikings are paying him €7m so they weren't miles away but I'd imagine it was the principal of it for him. He deserved better but at the same time they obviously got him value close to correct if he is signing with a Vikings roster that won't be challenging any time soon for similar money. Everything about Jones just screams class act so I hope he is successful there (Except against the Packers) and comes back before long to get his due in Green Bay. Can see him resigning at some stage to retire a Packer.

    From what I read the guaranteed money from the Packers was 4m and the guaranteed from Vikings was 6m so a 2m gap. Packers wanted Jones to go from 11m to 4m. Can understand him moving on. Was surprised it was the vikings though and thought he might have more options out there.

    rumours going around that Micah Hyde might be coming back. F**K yeah, wasn't used properly by dom capers and should never have been let go. Love how aggressive Gute is, the time is now for Love.

    Hmmm Jordan Morgan OL picked first by the Packers.

    6.5. ..315… what the Packers like as an OL..Apparently is versatile

    and could play in the interior if doesn’t work out at tackle.

    Interesting pick with Mims and Barton not taken.

    Missing Cooper Dejean after the Eagles trade up a little disappointing, but Edgerrin Cooper and Javon Bullard are two absolutely cracking picks for me.

    Jordan Morgan seemed a bit of a stretch yesterday but absolutely feels like a Gute type pick. Fills a need and versatile. Neither under nor overwhelmed with Morgan......totally whelmed

    Hopper was a great pick! 😀

    Very happy with the draft so far. Lots of needs being seen to. A CB would have been nice too but you can't have it all!

    Apparently the 7th round pick was projected 2nd or even 1st round pick before a disastrous 2023 so maybe if he can get back close to that previous level there might be something there. Don't have to look too far back to find a 7th round CB they picked previously that ended up starting as a rookie and playing well!

    Hopefully Stokes can get back to his rookie level and Valentine kicks on. If any of these happen then the backfield could be a real strength. Add in a new DC with a new scheme and the defence as a whole could improve massively. We have thought that before though so I'll reserve judgement but it certainly looks as though the pieces are there.

    I didn't know that. Hopefully, he can regain his previous form. Definitely worth the punt so! Excited to see our defensive plan with ethe new DC. It surely can't be any more infuriating than the last 3 years considering the players we had and now have.

    Opposition with a 3rd and 17…. Bang … down the middle ..TE collects unscathed 18 yds from the line of scrimmage.

    Tell me those days will be history!


    😫

    I try and partition my trauma on a DC by DC basis!😅

    NFC North could be tough to get out of next season.
