He's a free agent. He gets to hit the market or the Packers have to franchise him at ~$15million which thereby makes him untradeable. As does the 2 first rounders it would cost for you to sign him from underneath them.
Not exactly Peeks .
There is an exclusive and non exclusive tag , and while placing the tag on a RFA requires two #1 picks in compensation tagging a free agent under the guise of negotiating a contract gives the tem the option to take less .
We pulled off a trade for Corey Williams with a second round pick after he was tagged ,and the Chiefs only gave up a second for Cassel in a sweetheart deal with Pioli.
The Packers aren't gonna try and extort anybody which by all rights two number ones for a seventh rounder couldn't be construed as anything less. if that was indeed what they were seeking , , just parlay the expected interest in Flynn into a pick on his way out the door .
They'll want our Atlanta pick at 22 , but I'd counter with a second in 2013 and step it up from there.
What can be negotiated is one thing. The negotiation rights are not transferable though. Pack would have to sign him long term and then deal him. And to sign him will be expensive because he's guaranteed ridiculous money if they franchise him under either path.
To your point, I'm sure Pack could sign him for years and dollars ok'd by Browns and Flynn and then deal him to CLE but that's gonna cost a lot of cash and compensation.
