A roundup of the latest Green Bay Packers articles for Tuesday, March 19.

Good morning and welcome to the Packers News Report. It’s all gone very quiet in free agency for the Green Bay Packers, which is no surprise considering the big deals they signed last week.

One surprise is that Bashaud Breeland won’t be re-signing with Green Bay, as he’s reportedly signing with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Interestingly, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported yesterday that the team doesn’t have much cap room remaining after their recent signings. Silverstein noted this morning that they were $13 million under the cap yesterday, but that doesn’t count for the upcoming draft class. It’s fair to say it’s unlikely Green Bay will be making many more big free agency moves this year.

In the Packers News Report today: why cornerback is now a bigger need without Bashaud Breeland, why Green Bay has a need for linebacker speed, and more.

Here’s a roundup of the latest articles from around the internet.
