It’s awfully early, but we already hear rumblings that running backs Ryan Grant, Brandon Jackson and DeShawn Wynn won't be around in 2010. Grant is overpaid, Jackson is unreliable and Wynn is a nonentity..... Mike McCarthy made it clear to Dom Capers that he wanted Green Bay to be a pure 3-4 team in 2009 - even though his new defensive coordinator had impressive results running an under 4-3 scheme in his inaugural seasons with Jacksonville in 2000 and Miami in 2004. Those teams, like the current Packers, had personnel better suited to play with four down linemen..... While Ted Thompson probably won’t pull the trigger on any major trades before next Tuesday's deadline, he’s at least testing the waters. Green Bay is willing to move either Nick Barnett or A.J. Hawk, but there’s little interest in either player. Fellow linebacker Aaron Kampman is far more appealing to other teams, but he doesn’t appear to be on the block..... Expect VP of Player Finance Russ Ball to initiate serious contract negotiations with center Jason Spitz in the next few weeks. The former Louisville star, along with guard Daryn Colledge, are the team’s top targets for in-season extensions..... And finally, former Packer Jamon Meredith had far more fans in the front office than he did on the playing field. Coaches and even some of his linemates had lost faith in the rookie left tackle after watching him drop out of numerous practices during training camp for a variety of reasons. The ex-South Carolina star is currently a backup in Buffalo.
