Packers News: Brandon Underwood Investigation; Johnny Jolly Signs But Not Tramon Williams or Atari Bigby

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

 - Have you wondered what happened to the police investigation of CB Brandon Underwood? Nothing has happened in the last week since the police didn't recommend charges. It's possible nothing ever comes of it, but it will continue to hang out there for at least a while longer.

 - UPDATE: Williams did sign his tender on Monday. While DE Johnny Jolly signed his tender last night, CB Tramon Williams and SS Atari Bigby did not. Now both are staring down a paycut. Bigby would only lose $50K, but Williams could lose $2.5 million. He's got an awful agent if he lets him lose that much money (or maybe his agent has a stubborn client). Hundreds of restricted free agents signed tendered contract offers, but Williams and Bigby are two of only a handful of RFAs who haven't. They've got no one to blame but themselves for this. It sucks for them that they weren't true unrestricted free agents, but that's not how it works right now. It's been known for months that teams have the leverage.

- Former Packer executive Andrew Brandt has written a number of good stories at the National Football Post about the current plight of the restricted free agent. He's going to write soon about collusion, something the union is already taking a look at according to Pro Football Talk. Will anything come of this or is it just something else to bring up during labor negotiations?
