Before the Packers cut down to 75 players today, here's what's going on around the Green Bay media and around the NFL.

Want to know who the Green Bay Packers are cutting today to get down to 75 players on the roster? Well, we can't help you on that quite yet. But until we know, we encourage you to check out today's Cheese Curds, in which we find questions about Nick Perry, officiating big hits, the timeline for signing Vince Young, and the possibility of trading a tight end. Eat up!

Packers still seek best complement for Clay Matthews - JSOnline
And I still think Nick Perry can be that guy.

Players wonder: What's a legal hit? - JSOnline
McCarthy: "I thought Manning's hit on the quarterback was textbook. He hit Brady Quinn, who was in the air — both of his feet were off the ground — when he did hit the ground he continued one fluid motion and rolled off."

Tavecchio not disheartened by release, reps | Packersnews
It's pretty awesome when a guy gets cut and has nothing but good things to say about his former team. Giorgio seems like an awesome dude, and we should wish him the best of luck.

Vince Young should have been signed sooner | Packersnews
I have to admit, I'm with Vandermause here. VY won the backup job in two weeks; he'd probably look far better in the offense if he had several months to absorb it.

Eddie Lacy might be the draft's biggest steal - ESPN
It's probably nothing new to Packers fans, but it's nice to see the rookie getting some national attention.

Could Oakland Raiders turn to Green Bay Packers for tight end help? - ESPN
We retweeted Ed Werder's tweet about Brandon Bostick drawing trade interest from around the league. I could certainly see Oakland or Kansas City being interested, given their GMs' ties to Ted Thompson.

NFL could ease policy on Adderall under new PED deal -
Fascinating - did you know that testing positive for Adderall currently carries a higher penalty in the NFL than marijuana or amphetamines?

A summary of outright lies you need to know about Jeff Tuel -
Jeff Tuel will start in week 1 for the Bills. Jon Bois fills you in on who this guy really isn't.
