The Green Bay Packers may not be done with free agency quite yet. The Packers have reportedly inquired about veteran offensive lineman Cody Wallace.

Wallace is entering his ninth season in the NFL. He’s spent the last four with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Wallace injured his knee last November and spent the remainder of the season on injured reserve. He started all 16 games for the Steelers at center in 2015, his only season as a full-time starter.
Obviously, if the Packers make a move here, they’d be looking at Wallace as offensive line depth. At the moment, it would appear that backup guard Don Barclay would also be the answer at backup center.
Considering Corey Linsley’s injury history — he’s missed 10 games in three seasons — it might not be a bad idea to have some additional insurance.
Won’t hurt for depth and to replace Linsley if he leaves. Let’s not forget we need to extend Adams, Dix, and Rodgers.
Screw the o-Line, start deleting from the D-Line and get guys who want to play. Start with getting rid of Matthews who’s getting paid to do nothing.
Exactly! The defensive line outside of Daniels isn’t that good. We need Eliot Wolf and Ted Thompson to sign Vance Walker or Elvis Dumervil to challenge Ricky Jean Francois for the DE spot.
