The agreements reached with guard Ron Hallstrom and center Mark Cannon leave the Packers with two holdouts: wide receiver Phillip Epps and linebacker Brian Noble. “If everything goes well with Ron and he stays healthy, he’ll make the kind of money where he should be,” Hallstrom’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, says.
