Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for March 7, 2014

Rick Stewart

Two more Packers are expected to hit the open market on Tuesday as we wait for news about whether B.J. Raji will sign the offer on the table.

It's now almost all free agency all the time around the NFL, as draft analysis takes a back seat for the next week or two. This is no different in the Packers' world, as the team has a rather absurd number of players hitting the market. We have the names of two more Packers who won't be re-signed by Tuesday, a look at another who might be, and some look at other teams' free agents-to-be.

We do have one great read on the draft though, as SB Nation's Danny Kelly breaks down the league's scouting process and gets a look inside several teams' war rooms from people who have been inside.

Enjoy!

John Kuhn of Green Bay Packers to be free agent - ESPN
Well, we've got yet another Packer who won't be re-signing before Tuesday begins.

Quarless and Packers are talking, but no deal yet - JSOnline
It's no surprise that they're talking, but my gut tells me that Quarless won't be back in 2014. Just a hunch, though.

Examining why B.J. Raji would do a 1-year deal with Packers - ESPN
Here's one writer's take on Raji's rationale for seriously considering the Packers' offer. Hint: it involves a very depressed market for his services.

Something about crab? Anyway, here's the case for signing Byrd in detail.

This is fantastic, and it helps shed a little light on how Ted Thompson and company set up the Packers' draft board.

Darren Sproles, Pierre Thomas on Saints trade block, per report - SBNation.com
Good luck with that, Saints. Now that other teams know that you want to trade these guys and are up against some salary cap trouble with the Jimmy Graham thing, everybody will wait for you to cut them on Tuesday. Oh wait - one of them is apparently already getting cut.

Michael Vick to the Vikings? Adrian Peterson thinks so - SBNation.com
LOL.
