The Packers have a number of intriguing free agents: Jermichael Finley, Scott Wells, Matt Flynn, and Jarrett Bush.
Flynn figures to fly the coop, but the Packers will try to retain the other three. Finley looks like a strong candidate to get the franchise tag.
Packers fans want to know how possible contract talks are going with Wells, who is coming off his best season. Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel says don’t expect any deals anytime soon.
The Packers traditionally don’t re-sign potential free agents until very late in the process. This is usually just before or after the start of free agency.
While Green Bay does this more than most teams, it’s something to keep in mind with all teams. I’ve seen a lot written lately reading into the fact that certain players haven’t started contract negotiations. That’s the norm.
It’s easy to forget that free agency is still almost a month away. It begins March 13, and most contract talks around the league don’t start in earnest until the Combine.
Essentially, we shouldn’t expect many big moves in any city until March. This is annually one of the quietest times of the NFL calendar year.
