    same thing was said about Flynn last year, they can't afford the risk of having to keep him just like last year they couldn't with Flynn.

    If the Packers attempt to tag and trade they run the risk of it blowing up in their face. The franchise tag is $10.4 million for a WR and the Packers have somewhere between $15-20 million in spae. They have the room to do it, but if they do it and can't trade him, they won't have wiggle room to do much else. If their cap number is closer to $15 million they would likely have to make some cuts just to sign their draft picks.

    This was the same deal with Matt Flynn last year, they could have tried to tag him and trade him, but the risk outweighed the reward. I would be surprised if they put the tag on Jennings.

    If it were that easy to do then we would Franchise Long and trade him away for a pick

    Technically, it isn't. But it's like tampering, everybody does it and it's very hard to prove. All you need to do is put in about a week's worth of effort in negotiating a contract for show. Then you can trade away.

    Not buying it. They risk tying up a huge portion of their cap space by making him one of highest pd WR's and then think teams will pay that price for a 1 year deal and have to give up a draft pick. They'd get stuck and then not be able to make any moves in FA and then have their #1 & 2 WR's asking why they are making less than their #3 wr. Not going to happen.

    I think the risk of Jennings filing a grievance would be a pretty big concern, wouldn't it? There's a reason teams aren't doing this...
