Oh, and an expensive free agent acquisition.
But scheduled to count $9,437,500 against the salary cap in 2013, the Packers opted to release Woodson and use that money elsewhere. Since then, the Packers have signed Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews to lucrative contract extensions and brought in 11 players via the draft.
But one position that wasn’t addressed by the Packers in April’s draft was safety.
Alongside Morgan Burnett, the Packers’ have questionable depth at the position. Second-year player Jerron McMillian has his sights set on the starting job, and M.D. Jennings has added five pounds in hopes of being an every-down player. Sean Richardson, an undrafted rookie last season, also figures to compete for playing time.
Entering the draft, many expected the Packers to address the safety position early. But with the No. 26 pick, they turned their shoulder to M...

This week, Packers’ brass revealed they were actively shopping James Starks, former playoff hero...
Illinois State defensive lineman Nate Palmer only had one predraft visit, and it was with the team that drafted him, the Green Bay Packers. At the 6-foot-2, 248-pounds, Palmer fits as an outside pass rusher in Dom Caper’s 3-4 scheme. In college he played as a down lineman and will be making the transition to linebacker in the NFL, but he doubted that anyone would draft him...
