    I'd give Joe Flacco $12-$14M/yr

    I think the Packers are on their way down. Rodgers is the only thing keeping them afloat. They have lots of young stars that are going to be due huge contracts and the vets are all getting phased out. They need to keep drafting strong to have any sort of chance to stay relevant. Matthews, Rodgers, Finley, Tramon, Shields, Raji, and Cobb will all be due huge deals in the next couple years.

    Also James Jones will be looking for a new deal as well.

    I would say the Cowboys but I don't think you can decline more than they have already..

    As long as Aaron Rodgers is their QB, they won't truly be on the decline.

    The Packers are a good FA and draft away from being the best team in the league. The same could probably be said for a lot of teams, but they have a top 3 QB and a great WR corps even without Jennings.

    Fix that OL and front seven, and they'd be sitting pretty.

    I think the Pack have invested too much into the WR group, they should have looked at OL and passrush/DB help, its obvious Rodgers will make anyone look like Rice.

    They've hardly invested in the WR group IMO.

    Nelson has a 3 year/$13M deal. Jones has a 3 year/$9M deal. Cobb is still under his rookie contract which is super cheap. That's nothing. We pay Craig Stevens and Lavelle Hawkins similar amounts... AWESOME!

    Jennings is the only concern, and I'd bet my house they'll let him walk. I know I would... they have other huge needs and are fine with Nelson, Jones, Cobb.

    three 2nd round picks and a third?

    Thats quite a bit to me, not to mention Driver was pretty good not that long ago.

    I thought you were talking strictly contract numbers.

    Yea, that's a lot, but that's over the course of five drafts. Not a big deal if you ask me. It's not like they're pulling a Matt Millen with the Lions and drafting WRs in the first round every year.

    And they'll certainly not take a WR this year until late in the draft.

    Bad teams(7-9 or worse) that will stay bad for a minute: Eagles, Chiefs, Raiders, Jaguars, Jets, Cardinals, Panthers, Dolphins
    Eagles: What can I say? bunch of overrated thugs...
    Chiefs: Could a QB from this class turn them around? I doubt it...
    Raiders: Garbage
    Jaguars: Shouldn't have drafted Gabbert...
    Jets: They should have never put that much faith in Sanchez
    Cardinals: Shouldn't have ever traded for Kolb's slaw self
    Panthers: Cam Newton isn't a winner...he's a conceded douche...Plus, steve smith is bout done.
    Dolphins: Tannehill is not the answer

    Bad teams that will improve: Buffalo, Browns, Titans, Detroit, Chargers, Rams, Buccs, Saints
    Bills: Literally a QB away from being a playoff team
    Browns: Trent Richardson
    Titans: Still believe in Lockers
    Detroit: They'll be fine...
    Chargers: Rivers is only 31, still in his prime
    Rams: My boy Fisher gonna turn them into something serious...Bradford is capable of winning
    Buccs: I like their head coach, Doug Martin and Josh Freeman are good too
    Saints: Will get better next season, but Brees is bout to be 35 so they better make something happen soon.
