(Before we begin: Tuesday is normally our day to take a glance at the Green Bay Packers’ opposition for that week. As much as we’d love to write about the Washington Redskins, sorry, there was just too much else going on Tuesday. Don’t worry – you’ll get our full wrap-up of the D.C. trip next week. That is, if I don’t have a heart attack on the plane. Okay, I’ll stop writing about that now.)
Aren’t Tuesdays supposed to be the off day for the NFL?
It certainly wasn’t the case on this particular Tuesday. There was more than a little activity of interest involving the Green Bay Packers.
Only, really, none of it actually involved the Packers.
The first piece of news broke in the early afternoon when we learned that running back Marshawn Lynch had been traded from the Buffalo Bills to the Seattle Seahawks. The Bills reportedly received a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a conditional pick – believed to be either a fifth or sixth round pick – in 2012.
The second piece? Well, that was even more interesting, wasn’t it?
