Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. If you didn't see last night, the Packers signed T.J. Lang to a four-year contract extension. I've been a big fan of Lang for a while and I'm happy we got this deal done before the start of the season. His deal was set to expire at the end of the year, but now there's just one key player on the team with one year left on his contract: Greg Jennings.
Even though the Lang news dropped last night, it did so rather unceremoniously. Today's edition of your daily Green Bay Packers news and links has a lot to do with Cedric Benson.

How awesome would it be for a guy, after he signed for a fully or mostly guaranteed deal, said "Thanks for the free money, guys. I'm toast. I'm half the player I was two years ago."
