Packers apply tenders

The Green Bay Packers have announced the issuance of a variety of qualifying offers.

Eight restricted free agents will receive a one-year deal, including safety Atari Bigby, cornerback Will Blackmon, guard Daryn Colledge, safety Nick Collins, defensive end Johnny Jolly, fullback John Kuhn, offensive lineman Jason Spitz, and cornerback Tramon Williams.

The team did not specify the levels of the offers.

The move leaves running back DeShawn Wynn eligible to depart.

The Packers also have announced that tight end Spencer Havner has been issued a one-year offer as an exclusive-rights free agent.

[Editor's note:  I was moving too quickly earlier and made a couple of mistakes.  Cornerback Derrick Martin has signed a new deal, so he's not leaving.  And I missed Kuhn's name on the list of tendered restricted free agents.]

    I really liked all three FB’s but it’s insane to keep 3 for another season. Thanks for the tough play Kuhn, I bet Daetrois will be calling soon.

    Green Bay Packers sign S Derrick Martin to 2-year contract on 2/22/2010.

    Bob_neson and fake Jimmysmith , my mouth misses those toothpick dicks of yours.
    A Packer fan is one who is easily spoted.They are very slow in their thinking and response,they studder and drool.They are in the highest percentage in high school drop outs.They tend to inbreed and drink warm cheap beer.
    They have become brain washed to wearing cheese on thier heads for all of us to laugh at them yet they think it’s cool.They live in the past(usally in the 50′s and 60′s)because they have nothing to look forward to in the present.They have trouble identifying thier (ahem) “women” from farm animals.They tend to all have huge guts, both males and females.In short they are the lowest forms of humanity in all the earth.

    Derrick Martin was signed to a two year contract extension a couple days ago, so he is off the market. Also, we didn’t tender our stud (cough, cough) punter Jeremy Kapinos. So if anyone wants him, he’s available. I’d appreciate it if you added him to the list so that the NFL GM’s that read your post notice he can be had.

    The great and powerful Jimmysmith has spoken.
    In doing so, he has revealed a need for remedial English so typical of nascent LA Viking fans.
    Long live Jimmysmith and Jimmysmithisms.

    I was going to say “cue the never been laid ” Viking fans, but they (seeing is all they do is live in the basement on their computers ) but they were already on here in warp speed..get alife losers..this a FOOTBALL blog..not a junior high chat room.

    20 Years from now Aarom Rogers will not be on Conan O’ Brien as a football superstar.
    The Farvmister loss probably in total in 20 years will cost Green Bay $500 million in lost revenue.
    Aaron will make a good musician and Sundance movie critic.

    Kuhn got the lowest tender. Can’t anyone read?

  10. atolend27 says: Mar 3, 2010 7:47 PM

    jimmysmith is a viking fan? after all these years of kicking the shit out of them, they get one year on us and talk s**T. typical for a bitter fan who hasnt won a super bowl. bretts still good, except in playoffs. adrians year sucked and u gave away sharper. smart franchise.

    You said women farm animals and big guts?… You must have been looking at the picture of your mom and wife in the family portrait when typing that comment. Just a thought.

  12. garyl says: Mar 3, 2010 8:16 PM

    The impetuous Packers lost sooo much money in the Farve situation.
    Half a billion!!!
    How does AR mack up for that.

    garyl- Forrest Gump is making fun of you right now.

    What were Majik and Jeff saying again?

  15. Sterling says: Mar 3, 2010 8:28 PM

    Jimmysmith isn’t a Vikings fan; he’s a fan of hearing himself talk. Or in this case, reading his own posts. He posted that meandering, mistake-filled post on a Vikes page and was so proud of it, he copied and pasted it here. Any dim bulb who would make fun of others while misspelling every other word in his rant deserves whatever he gets.

    How bout those Vikings… they ALMOST won another Superbowl.

    Holy shit! You posted this again?
    You’re still unable to spell, though. I’d suggest running your shit through a spell-checker now and then.. At least if you want to call others stupid. It comes off pretty ridiculous as you do it.

    ________________
    We were saying that Ted has a lot of key free agents. Tendering these guys an offer is not the same as signing them. These guys all still have a chance to leave. Even if they somehow all stay, what happens next year when all 8 are unrestricted? I’m sure that a 2 time Pro Bowler like Collins will be thrilled to receive a crappy $2 mil. tender.

    I would love to know why the hell Daryn Colledge got tendered. The dude was by far the worst performer on the offensive line this past year.

    Wisconsinites have an obesity rate of 26%, where Minnesotans have a rate of 25.3%. WI is ranked 25th, MN is ranked 31st fattest.
    If you really want to know, almost ALL of the fattest states are in the south.
    Top-15 fattest states:
    (1. MS), (2. AL), (3. WV), (4. TN), (5. SC), (6. OK), (7. KY), (8. LA), (9. MI), (10. AR), (11. OH), (12. NC), (13. MO), (14. GA), (15. TX).
    I can almost hear southerners bemoaning how fat Wisconsin is, as they shovel pounds of french fries covered in chili and cheese into their pieholes.
    In addition, we have a great state school system, and regularly churn out dynamite student-athletes. Only a moron wouldn’t realize that.
    Wisconsin / Marquette > Minnesota (I’m sure you have a better curling team, though)
    Bucks > Timberwolves
    Brewers = Twins (who cares?)
    And as for ‘drinking crap beer’, apparently you have never been to Wisconsin, as we have amazing beers for every palate. I know NOBODY can compete with Minnesota’s fine beer selection (…crickets…), but we’re trying our darndest.
    Laughable, in all regards.

    How dare you question your lord and savior, Ted. Super would disown you if he saw you disrespecting Teddy.

    Wisconsin / Marquette > Minnesota
    You cant be serious. If you are tour dumber than I thought.
    Brewers = Twins
    Really the Twins franchise has 3 world series trophies ( 1 as the Senators) The Brewers have 0.
    The Braves are now the Atlanta Braves, so they don’t count.
    When arguing baseball, Twins fans don’t bring up trophies from 87 and 91.
    Yet you jagoff Packer fans just can’t help yourself, can you?

  23. Ruvell100 says: Mar 4, 2010 1:54 PM

    Jeff….seriously….
    “Wisconsin / Marquette > Minnesota
