Former first round pick Laurence Maroney gets traded to the Broncos with a 6th round pick for a 4th Click Here (sports.espn.go.com). I would have seen if Green Bay would have offered more.
Maroney was in the doghouse and never getting out, I think he might surprise some people with a fresh start. He did seem to fumble or do something spacey at the wrong times more often than he should have.
They really didn't have many options. Cutcliffe was the other main candidate, and while the man has done an admirable job at Dook, he wouldn't have been a 'sexy' candidate either. Sumlin was a pipe dream at best and has no ties to the area.
