This is really looking ahead to the start of training camp, but I had the opportunity to ask former Green Bay Packers VP Andrew Brandt a couple questions about 1st round draft choice LT Bryan Bulaga. I'm a little concerned about signing him because of the two rookie signings mentioned in this article: DE B.J. Raji held out for two weeks last season, and the last time the Packers selected an offensive lineman in the 1st round, Iowa's LT Ross Verba held out for three weeks.
Andrew Brandt: I wouldn't think there would be a problem signing Bulaga. The agents representing Tebow and Bryant, Jimmy Sexton and Eugene Parker, are reasonable negotiators, as I have done several deals with each. Bulaga should have a seamless negotiation.
AB: Chad and Mark will be fine. They've been around long enough to know it was only a matter of time before a high draft pick was used at tackle. They'll welcome him in, play some practical jokes on him, and move forward. Nothing to worry about there.
