The Big News (Relatively)


As we all continue to wait Brett Favre’s retirement decision, there was finally some real news from the Packers yesterday with the use of the franchise tag on Corey Williams and the decision to cut Bubba Franks. Props to Greg Bedard for his sense that the Williams move might happen (or maybe Ted Thompson read his piece and was persuaded?) At first blush, I think both seem to be smart moves. More on this later, but in the meantime see this and this

And there was also this from yesterday morning: “No Signs Packers Will Hit Williams with Franchise Tag.” To be fair, the article is a lot more nuanced than that headline might make it seem.
