With the initial chaos of free agency over, Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson can get to work finding bargains.

This is the time of year to address needs, but Thompson doesn’t tend to do so in the opening week of free agency. Amid the chaos, it’s unlikely you will sign a player to a contract that isn’t going to be above your valuation.

As the market settles down, opportunities arise for teams to find talented players who can fill a need and not cost anywhere near the price you would have to pay in the first few days.

Last season, the Packers found late value in defensive tackle Letroy Guion. Guion, a former Viking, was initially brought in as depth behind B.J. Raji, but found himself as a regular starter after Raji suffered a season-ending bicep injury in training camp.

Guion was a solid performer on the field, making 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks in 2014. He is a perfect example of a solid, second wave free agency target that Thompson likes to bring in.

Could these three players be on Thompson’s radar?
