Welcome to Wednesday, Packers fans, as we officially have less than a week until the opening of free agency. Today we have a story on the top safety on the market, as he discusses the possibilities of coming to Titletown. Also of interest are a number of draft prospects, including a pair of talented defensive players and also the graduating Wisconsin Badgers, who will be going through their workouts today at Wisconsin's Pro Day.

To make a long story short, "Both guys were good players but they aren’t the dynamic players that opposing offenses build a scheme around." That's the takeaway here, and he's totally right about that.
