News and Rumors

Many Free Agents with Green Bay Ties Are Awaiting the Call

Jordy Nelson

As I write early on Wednesday afternoon, some names familiar to Packers fans are nervously waiting for the phone to ring.

At quarterback, the scuttlebutt is that the Cardinals are offering Brett Hundley a 1-year deal in the $2-3 million range.

At running back, Ty Montgomery is still available. John Kuhn has just begun enjoying retirement.

At wide receiver, Randall Cobb remains unsigned. While Jordy Nelson is under contract, indications are that the Raiders plan to release him.

At tight end, Jared Cook is considered the best tight end still available. Also still out there are Lance Kendricks and Marcedes Lewis. Richard Rogers is tenuously attached to the Eagles, but he’s coming off of injured reserve.

On the offensive line, T.J. Lang, Ulrick John, and Marshall Newhouse are all looking for a team.

Turning to the defense, edge rushers Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, and Frank Zombo are still free agents.

At defensive tackle, a couple of the guys still available are Ricky Jean-Francois and Mike Pennel.

I’m not seeing any free agent linebackers with Packers ties, other than the above edge rushers.

At cornerback, the guy that Packer fans are most interested in is Bashaud Breeland. Davon House and Sam Shields are also still available.

At safety, Chris Banjo just got a 3-year extension with the Saints. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, a starter for the Redskins the second half of 2018, should also draw some attention.

Someone else said it first but I popularized it: “Athleticism is important in athletic pursuits.” It took three years, but the Packers finally listened. My new mantra: “Trading down is fine, but never trade up.”

    Now just wait a damn minute here…..Seattle didn’t want to keep around a future HOF QB? Well, maybe they know what a good QB looks like.

    In related News: Looks like Hundley signed on with the 3-13 Cardinals…..Sounds about right.

      I read someplace that Hundley thinks he can get another starting gig with the Cards if they deal Rosen. Fitzgerald should be as happy as a pig in shit when Hundley destroys Larry’s final year in the NFL.

      Larry call Jordy right now! You may want to retire before you have to endure the frustration of running wide open or at least about to enter a wide open zone with no ball forthcoming. Jordy deserved better and so would Fitzgerald.

        Speaking of Jordy, he has been released by the Raiders.

          Well…the Pack wants to be in every conversation. so maybe they woo him back with an offer of vet min.

      Saw this comment on reddit: “Bears may get Ha Ha, but the Packers get the last laugh”

        Not to be a anything….but….When one team wins the Division, and another team comes in 3rd, i’m pretty sure the Division winner has the last laugh,

        Just sayin.
