While teams started shopping and signing free agent players around the NFL,
all is quiet so far on the Green Bay Packers front.
Free agency officially got underway at 3pm Tuesday afternoon and the Packers started with nearly $7-million in salary cap room. But Ted Thompson and company didn’t reach a deal with veteran center Scott Wells or defensive back Jarrett Bush.
The Packers are likely looking to reach a deal with one and most likely both players, but they’ll have to wait to see what the market will bear for both.
If Wells and Bush don’t get the kind of deals they’re hoping for, there’s a chance they could return to the Packers.
There was no interest in any other free agents from other teams, but that’s not a shocker. Thompson rarely plays the free agent game, other than to sign his own players.
QB Matt Flynn has drawn some interest. The Miami Dolphins are hoping to land Peyton Manning, but that’s not real likely. Should the Dolphins miss out on that deal, they’ve already reached out to the Flynn camp to express their interest in the former Packers backup.
Running back Ryan Grant is also seeking offers from other teams, but the Packers have already said they would like to resign him.
