GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Ted Thompson has suddenly become quite active in free agency. Just hours after signing center Jeff Saturday, the Packers have added defensive tackle Daniel Muir.
Muir, 28, played for Green Bay as an undrafted rookie in 2007, appearing in three games and recording four tackles. Muir has spent the past four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, where he started 26 games and had 82 tackles.
It is likely that this means the end of the road for Packers defensive tackle Howard Green, who is an unrestricted free agent. Despite being healthy, Green was on Green Bay's inactive list for the playoff loss to the New York Giants.
That backup spot to B.J. Raji is now for Muir, a 6-foot-2, 312-pounder from Kent State.

Not gonna lie, I love those Discount Double-Check commercials. All three of them. I think the Clay Matthews one might be my favorite, just because of how down Rodgers seems with the whole phenomenon and how nonchalant Matthews is when Rodgers questions him. Anyhoo, moving to cards, I picked up three Rodgers Rookies for about the price of a blaster after tax. I was fortunate enough...
Jeff Saturday is without doubt my favorite Colt. His everyman story of struggling just to make in the NFL is inspiring. He's a good man, a father and clearly a man on great character. He's also been one whale of an offensive lineman and a leader to boot.
Nate Dunlevy tackles the tough question about Jeff's credentials for the Hall of Fame in his tweet bag:
GREEN BAY, Wis. After four disappointing seasons in Green Bay, Pat Lee is no longer with the Packers. The 2008 second-round pick signed a one-year deal with the Oakland Raiders.
There was no reason for Green Bay to keep Lee around any longer. He was unable to crack the top-four spots on the cornerback depth chart, sitting well below Sam Shields and Jarrett Bush for the nickel and...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- After 10 days of inactivity in free agency, the Green Bay Packers have agreed to sign longtime Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday, according to multiple internet reports. Terms of the contract are not yet known.
Saturday, a 13-year veteran after going undrafted in 1998, has played his entire career with the Colts. Nearly all of those years were spent snapping...
I can't really take credit for that headline concept (darn it!). That was more or less an ESPN line. Something to the effect that "Jeff Saturday signed Friday to play Sunday." Well done, es-pen, well done indeed.Anyway, the point of all the above is that veteran, venerable, free agent center Jeff Saturday was signed by the Green Bay Packers yesterday. He will replace...
Green Bay lost one Pro Bowl center but replaced him with five-time Pro Bowler Jeff Saturday. Saturday was the unsung hero of those Peyton Manning-led offenses and now he'll work with another line-of-scrimmage maestro in Aaron Rodgers.
Former Saint has already been suspended twice by the league
Unable to sign a proven pass rusher in free agency and unwilling to rely on the likes of Erik Walden and Jarius Wynn for another season, the normally conservative Ted Thompson now appears willing to go the unconventional route in an effort to improve what was his team’s Achilles’ heel in 2011. What other explanation...
The New Orleans Saints aren't the only team that has been toinvestigated by the NFL for running a "bounty" program.
The league also probed the Green Bay Packers in 2007 for a similar program, although the infractions were on a much smaller scale.
The Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported that Green Bay players offered to pay the team's defensive linemen $500...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Green Bay Packers have signed free agent veteran center Jeff Saturday. We don’t have the specifics of the contract a this time.
Saturday will be 37 years-old by the time the regular begins, I would think he has a year or two left, before he retires.
Saturday was contemplating whether or not he was going to sign with the Titans or possibly...
In his first year as Green Bay Packers General Manager (2006), Ted Thompson grabbed Charles Woodson and Ryan Pickett via free agency. Neither appeared to be a stud at the time—the Oakland Raiders thought Woodson was breaking down—but adding two starters to a team that had gone 4-12 was a step in the right direction.
In the five years that followed, Thompson’s free agents were...
