Jeff Saturday’s free agent tour started in Green Bay, and it will end there.
Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that a deal between the Packers and Saturday has been completed.
The Broncos were expected to make a strong push for Saturday, who has been Peyton Manning’s center for almost all of Manning’s career, and who would represent an upgrade at center in Denver.
But the Packers need a center, too, and Saturday is a strong choice for them. The Packers rarely sign unrestricted free agents, preferring to build through the draft and focus in free agency on re-signing their own players, but after starting center Scott Wells signed with the Rams, Green Bay makes sense as Saturday’s landing place.
