I was astonished to read something about the Packers at ESPN today. Regarding the signing of Jeff Saturday it is notable that the veteran center for Peyton Manning is the first unrestricted free agent signing for the Packers in three years. That led me to do some more digging and I found that the Packers are so proud of the way that their team is built that they have a “How The Packers Were Built” page on their website.
On that page it tells you that 33 of the current Packers were drafted vs. 31 who arrived by way of free agency. That free agent total sounds pretty high, but so many of them were undrafted rookies it makes sense. Donald Driver is the lone player remaining from the 1999 draft. Chad Clifton is the lone player from the 2000 draft. Then there is a scary break in the action as the Packers have no representatives on the team from 2001 – 2004.

Al: If he was still around, I would pick Mark Tauscher. I always think offensive...

The Green Bay Packers are boosting up their defensive line now as they came to an agreement with defensive end, Anthony Hargrove. The 28-year-old was in contract talks with the Packers this past week. Hargrove has played for the Saints, Bills, and Rams and most recently the Seahawks, where he totaled 18 tackles and three sacks.

Now, you can’t tell me that during your Sunday sports coma you haven’t noticed the cheesehead linebacker with the flowing golden mane and arsenal of fancy footwork.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- For a general manager like Ted Thompson, these are the types of days to look forward to.

Reggie McKenzie worked under Ted Thompson for seven years, but he obviously doesn’t adhere to his former boss’ philosophy of saying as little as possible when it comes to dealing with the media.
