The Packers have lost one of their starters from last year’s Super Bowl.
Guard Daryn Colledge has agreed to terms with the Arizona Cardinals, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network. It is no surprise Colledge left town.
The good, not great starter has publicly talked about his desire for a new contract for years. While he didn’t seem to get a ton of respect in Green Bay, he did start 76 games for the club.
He adds much-needed competence to a Cardinals offensive short on answers. The Rams also reportedly were in the bidding for Colledge.
Colledge and wide receiver James Jones figure to be the best Packers to leave the team in free agency, although we haven’t heard anything about Jones the last two days. The Packers are also expected to cut linebacker Nick Barnett.
