Daryn Colledge To The Cardinals

Unsurprisingly, Green Bay Packers LG Daryn Colledge is moving on. From John Clayton's Twitter:

The Cardinals have started to rebuild the middle of their offensive line by adding Packers guard Daryn Colledge for five years, $27.5 mil

I'm not sure about the guaranteed dollars, but I fully expect him to be playing in the NFL for the next for five seasons, and over $5 million per season is a lot for a guard. That would have put him in the Top 10 for salaries based on the 2010 Packers. He's a solid, dependable player, but he's not one of their ten best. 

The Packers have some options here to replace him. First round draft pick Derek Sherrod might have the first opportunity, but maybe they'll want to go with T.J. Lang instead. This is a deep free agent group at guard, and it's not out of the question they'll bring a veteran either at a cheaper price. But I expect they'll either want to get Sherrod playing time, or go with Lang for the future.
