When Florio posted news Wednesday on restricted free agents for the Packers, we didn’t know yet what level each player was tendered.
Well, we have a better idea now. And guard/tackle Daryn Colledge isn’t pleased.
Greg. A. Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel writes that Colledge privately is “furious.” He wanted a first-round tender and said he thought he got a second-round tender.
“If it’s a second round, maybe I have a chance to move,” Colledge said
on the radio Thursday night. “Maybe I could be coming to a city near you.”
Colledge’s attitude won’t sit well with a fan base that was publicly furious with Colledge’s turnstile-like play last season. (Jared Allen and Antwan Odom loved it.) Colledge is tired of changing positions, but we suspect the team is tired of his excuses.
We’ve got news for Colledge: It’s very unlikely any team will give up a second-round pick for him. It could be worse, though. He could be a pissed-off ex-punter.
