NFL Free Agency 2014: March 11 Open Thread

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

It's finally here. Discuss rumors, signings, and anything else as you see fit!

The 2014 Free Agency season is off to a rather interesting start for the Green Bay Packers. They kicked off free agency early this year, signing cornerback Sam Shields on Saturday evening to a four-year, $39 million deal. Then this afternoon we learned that Ted Thompson did indeed tag restricted free agent linebacker Jamari Lattimore with the lowest RFA tender, ensuring that the Packers will be able to match any other team's contract offer.

The Packers have also been rumored to be interested in a number of other players, including defensive ends Lamarr Houston of the Oakland Raiders and Arthur Jones from the Baltimore Ravens (although Jones is reportedly ready to sign a deal with the Colts).

In addition, the Packers still have several 2013 starters looking for new contracts, including center Evan Dietrich-Smith; tight ends Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless; defensive linemen B.J. Raji, Johnny Jolly, and Ryan Pickett; and fullback John Kuhn, to name a few.

It all kicks off officially at 3:00 PM Central time today. This is your official Packers free agency open thread for day one of free agency, so get those rumors flying and discuss all the signings here.
