The latest Green Bay Packers seven-round mock draft, offseason blueprint and more in the Packers News Report.
Good morning and welcome to the Packers News Report for Monday, March 5.
We are just over a week away from the start of the new league year, and the excitement of free agency. At long last it seems the team from Packers News will be participating in the fun. But how aggressive will new general manager Brian Gutekunst actually be when looking for new players either via free agency or a trade? Your guess is as good as mine. Time will tell.
The offseason is about to get interesting. With free agency just around the corner, the excitement of the draft and the combine, a potential Aaron Rodgers contract extension not far away, and all of this taking place with a new GM running the show, it should be a lot of fun.
Monday’s Packers News Report features an interesting offseason blueprint for the Pack, a report on two defensive backs the team has met with at the combine, and more. Let’s get started.
