Will The Packers Resign RT Mark Tauscher?

I've assumed RT Mark Tauscher would be resigned for 2010 because it appears he wants to keep playing, and last season was a disaster without him. But he remains unsigned and Mike Vandermause is penciling in OL T.J. Lang at right tackle. Lang is a good player, but I'd rather he provide depth as a backup next season because there's no one else behind him on the depth chart.

The draft is one option because It's a great one for offensive lineman, and it looks like Idaho's G Mike Iupati (as one example) will be a good one. There isn't much left in free agency beyond Tauscher either. The only offensive lineman it looked worth pursuing was OL Rex Hadnot, but the Cardinals just signed him for 3 years and $9 million

Can the Packers afford to go into next season without Tauscher? Or is it time to draft for depth and let the Lang era begin.
