That sonuvabitch serving up his Kool-Aid yet again. Defensive lineman Grady Jackson is the latest Packer to sign with that SOB Rosenhaus, demand a new deal, and threaten to hold out of the ever-approaching training camp.

Sez so right here. (WBAY-TV...my employer)

Grady follows in the footsteps of RB Najeh Davenport in signing w/ Rosenhaus, and in WR Javon Walker's in signing AND threatening a holdout.

The worst part is that Grady said Walker and Rosenhaus were out of line...back on April 30 (when his agent was still James "Bus" Cook...who represents Favre.)

    "I mean, Javon should be here," Walker told reporters in April, "but I guess he's got to do what's best for him.... It kind of rubs you the wrong way but then again you got to do what's best for yourself."


This from a big fat man who missed most of last season with a Week 1 injury, after being a godsend in mid-2003.

I guess an actual legal contract means squat these days. Is Rosenhaus trying to kill off the Packers?

Can't say for certain, but there must be some flexibility in the players' contracts to allow for such holdouts. Otherwise the teams could just sue for breach and that would be the end of that. On the other hand, maybe there technically isn't an allowance for holdouts, but the L doesn't want teams to sue because it'd look bad to continually be suing your own players.

Let's hope so.

Maybe it's just me...but anyone on the Packers Defense threatening a holdout is kinda humorous...did they forget how godawful they were last season??

Since 2003, the Packers are 18-9 with and 2-5 without Grady in the lineup. The 5 game stretch he missed in 2004 saw the Packers go 1-4.

He's the kind of big DT that makes the Packers scheme work, which benefits the entire defense.
