However, my opinion is that the idea the Packers would even consider a trade for Ponder is about as straight as one of Ponder’s passes.
Chris Wesseling of NFL.com wrote the report yesterday, listing not only the Packers, but the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, and New Orleans Saints as possible trade partners with the Vikings.
I can’t imagine why Ted Thompson, who hardly ever trades in the first place (outside the draft), would even consider such a move. He already has Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien in-house, as well as rookie Chase Rettig, so it just makes no sense for the Packers to go after a QB who has been dismal at best during his first three years in the league.
Expect the Packers to go into training camp with the four quarterbacks listed above.
If the Vikings want to trade Ponder, please don’t call Ted Thompson … he’s got your phone number blocked.
