Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for March 19, 2015

New, comments

One Packer free agent is doing his due diligence and meeting with a potential new team this week.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Today, the NFL takes a back seat to college basketball. The first real day of the NCAA Basketball tournament tips off today at just after noon Eastern time, and with it the country's collective sports consciousness focuses on the hard court for the next few days.

Of course, it would be a very Ted Thompson move to sign a free agent or two while nobody's paying attention, so naturally we expect some Packers news to come down the wire soon. Until that happens, check out today's curds, which feature another former Packer free agent visiting a potential new team as well as some fallout from the March league meetings.

Oh, and don't forget to get signed up for APC's NCAA Basketball Tournament Pool here.
