    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Packers are expected to restructure Aaron Rodgers' contract to address his grievances with the team while setting up his "departure from Green Bay after the season."

    Schefter noted that this isn't a done deal yet but it would be surprising to see things fall apart at this point. It's a truly wild situation as Schefter also added that the new contract would address some of his "issues with the team" but didn't elaborate further. It would void the final year of his deal and allow him to leave by preventing the Packers from using any kind of tag on him. Lastly, the new contract would not give Rodgers any more money but would free up some cap space for Green Bay to spend this year. It's a bizarre situation and the lack of any new money, if true, would solidify the fact that Rodgers' dispute with the team was based exclusively on philosophical differences. More info will come and clarify some of the oddities of the deal but, for now, Rodgers is back with the Packers for another year. 

    I gotta say, after all the drama and speculation, this is a disappointing outcome. Now we're back to the outcome we expected before draft day - Rodgers plays one more year in Green Bay, and then gets traded.

    I agree, if they trade Rogers, they need back a guy that projects as a stud. I want a top 30 MLB prospect for him. Quality, not quantity. 

    I don’t think there’s any way they’re getting that... teams are hesitant to move their best prospects except for blockbuster deals. If you include Berrios, then yah that’d make sense.

    Do they still need to sign a kicker?

    Greg Joseph looks to be winning the job, as UDFA Riley Patterson was reportedly struggling in OTAs and was absent from minicamp. 
    I suspect they may turn to the waiver wire if both struggle in the preseason and camp.

    Give Terry Francona, Dave Roberts, or Kevin Cash this lineup and the Twins are 15 games over .500, not 15 below.

    Selling off once-in-a-lifetime talent like Buxton because your manager is overmatched and can't adjust seems foolish.

    That’s insanity, no manager is worth 30 wins! We have the third worst pitching staff by runs allowed, what sorcery would these managers perform to erase the runs out pitchers allow?

    Maybe Roberts or Francona could have gotten 3 or 4 wins, but not 30. Heck, I know Dodgers fans who think Roberts is a poor manager and if fired, they’d be doing better. It’s all a matter of perspective...

    Who and were is the 7 years stated?  Is this just a guess at the length?

    Ken Rosenthal's article:

    The Twins’ initial offer to Buxton was for $73 million over seven years, and included a unique incentive package that would have increased its potential value, sources said. Buxton’s side countered, and the Twins responded by increasing the guarantee to $80 million.

    Byron Buxton has rejected a contract extension with the Twins according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

    The timing of this is important considering the trade deadline is around the corner. It's possible the Twins will hold onto Buxton, who is due to become a free agent after the 2022 season, but the door certainly seems to have been kicked open for a potential trade. It should be an exciting week.

    I don't think he gets traded this week, but I think it might happen over the winter.

    I stand corrected. Use him on 3 WR formations.

    You're not completely wrong; Jacksonville did use him as a punt returner, but only as a backup kick returner. But after spending a 4th on Nwangwu and a 5th on Smith-Marsette, I'd think those two will be getting the KR and PR reps.

    Unsurprisingly, Twins southpaw Taylor Rogers “is very popular on the trade market,” MLB Network’s Jon Heyman tweets.  There is enough interest that the reliever has a “good chance to be dealt” even though Minnesota is reportedly reluctant to move players who are under team control beyond this season.  Rogers has one more arbitration year remaining before free agency in the 2022-23 offseason.

    From MLBTradeRumors, It sounds like teams are willing to pay a high price for Rogers...

    Which leaders? So far I’ve only heard Zimmer and Patrick Peterson, who were pushing players to get the vaccine.

    Harrison Smith too.

    Looks like they’re going to sign former Jags WR Westbrook to a 1 yr/$2.5M deal.

    Thoughts?

    It's a nice move for depth, Westbrook is a decent receiver and should be better than Bisi and Beebe.

    Calvin Faucher was a relief pitcher who was drafted in the 10th round I think from UCI in Irvine CA.  He had a low 90's fastball and was their closer.  That is all I got for you.  And he signed for around slot value or just under it I think.  He was a senior....

     

    I figured that much out, I was just wondering if anyone had heard of him before the trade. I hadn't, but there was an article on him from a couple years back.
