The Packers opted not to issue tenders to a trio of their restricted free agents: linebacker Robert Francois, tight end Tom Crabtree, and linebacker Frank Zombo.
Francois will be back, Crabtree won’t. As to Zombo, the Packers don’t seem to care.
According to Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers “haven’t shown much interest” in re-signing Zombo.
It’s a calculated risk for the Packers, who lost Erik Walden to the Colts. Likewise, Nick Perry missed most of his rookie season due to injury.
Injuries have been a problem for Zombo over the past two seasons. He arrived as an undrafted free agent in 2010.
