Bill Huber of PackerReport.com joined the show Monday to talk about what the Packers will do during the upcoming free agent period.
With today's decision not to franchise tag Greg Jennings, we asked Huber his thoughts on Jennings' future with the Packers. He said the choice not to franchise tag is "absolutely no surprise" but that he does not think the Packers are "out of it" with Jennings. He expects the Packers to wait around a few days and see where Jennings' price stands at that point. Despite Jennings' age, Huber predicts that he will get a good chunk of money and leave the Packers. "Jennings is a proven commodity.... He showed he's got some mileage out there."
On Chris Canty's upcoming visit to Green Bay this week, Huber says what makes him a valuable target for the Packers is his height. At 6'7", Canty would help stop the run and get his arms up in the passing line. Huber also thinks that with Canty, the Packers see an opportunity to sign a player at their own price, on their own terms.
What about the recent hype surrounding Finley and his comments regarding a pay cut? Huber's take on the situation was simple. Noting Mike McCarthy's bragging about Finley, he said "There's no way McCarthy's gonna go out there bragging this guy up again and again and again if he thinks they're going to get rid of him... I think he's signed, and I think that's it."
