As the Green Bay Packers prepare to start voluntary workouts next Monday, there is a surprising omission on the team's roster. A certain fullback whose name is often chanted at Lambeau Field remains unsigned at this point, despite two straight Pro Bowl seasons and a nine-year tenure with the team.

While John Kuhn is still a free agent, Jayrone Elliott is on the other end of the spectrum - he's a young, ascending player who remains under contract and is hoping for a bigger role in his third year.

Meanwhile, in the Pacific Northwest, the Seattle Seahawks' quarterback has moved on from his praising of one ridiculous consumer product to another. In fact, this new endorsement seems so absurd that it might actually put Recovery Water to shame.

Check out all that and more in today's curds.
