The Green Bay Packers locked up wide receiver Greg Jennings through the 2012 season, making him the second highest paid member of the team, behind only quarterback Aaron Rodgers. While that's a huge deal for the organization, there's still plenty of work to do for the Packers contract negotiator, Russ Ball.
The Packers still have 10 players that are entering the final year of their contract this season and seven of those ten are starters. They also have five draft picks that remain unsigned, including the teams two first round picks, B.J. Raji and Clay Matthews.
Now the Packers have to decide who they want to sign next. Aaron Kampman, Nick Collins, Atari Bigby and Ryan Pickett are the top defensive performers entering the final year of their contracts. Jason Spitz and Daryn Colledge are sure to get new deals on the offensive line.
For the defensive players, the timing couldn't be worse. They're learning a new defense while entering contract years. Included in that group is Kampman (pictured), who appeared upset early on about his change from defensive end in the 4-3 to outside linebacker in the 3-4.
Training Camp opens up the last weekend in July for the Packers.
