Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. Yesterday was a very uneventful day for the Packers, but an extremely eventful day around the NFL. A lot of players got new long-term contracts, a few guys who probably should have received new contracts didn't, and a couple of dudes got arrested. Here's your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.
