Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for February 12, 2014

Today's curds take a look at two Packers free agents and a new coach, and they feature a lot of sarcasm.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

As the off-season rolls along, free agency speculation continues. Today, Sam Shields and Matt Flynn are the players of interest for the Packers. We also have a look at new running backs coach Sam Gash, as well as an examination of how completely absurd the idea of Larry Fitzgerald coming to the Packers would be.

That's all I've got for a lead-in today, folks. Enjoy the links!
