Free Agency Begins Today, Packers Will Be Nowhere To Be Found

Chad Clifton

Surprise, surprise.

Free agency begins this afternoon and word out of Green Bay is the Packers will have nothing to do with it. Well, technically that’s not entirely true. The team will probably make a couple moves to bring their own guys back and will likely either have to re-sign center Scott Wells or his replacement, but there’s virtually no chance the Packers will make a splashy signing.

Quarterback Matt Flynn will be leaving for a starting job and the Packers will also have to make long-overdue decisions on what to do with veterans Chad Clifton and Donald Driver. Both have hefty contracts this season. Clifton is expected to be released and Driver could meet the same fate or could have his deal restructured.

The Packers will also have to decide whether to bring back guys like running back Ryan Grant and cornerback Jarrett Bush, who along with defensive lineman Howard Green and linebacker Erik Walden are free agents. The smart money is on Grant returning, but the others are likely to be playing elsewhere next season.

It should be a wild afternoon in just about every place but Green Bay. We’ll be tracking the big signings as well as the NFC North.

    Cut Clifton already. Love what the guy has contributed to the Pack, but he is eating up some serious cap room.

    Who cares if we don’t make moves in free agency. We are a 15-1 team with virtually the same team coming back. Draft a bunch of d-men and lets fuck this league up again!

    No big surprise. We need the money to extend the contracts of other players.

    They will, however, bring in a professional male prostitute who will let Rodgers deepthroat his penis while Thompson plays with his rectum before and after practices, and sometimes on Sundays. From their point of view that is a better use of the orgainzation’s money.

    NFL GM saying, teams that play in March don’t play in January.

    And if you can’t pay, then you can’t play.

    First day of free agency = First day carnival comes to town.

    All the suckers that rush to be the first ones there get fleeced the hardest.
