The Green Bay Packers are wasting no time kicking off free agency, after signing former Cleveland Brown Christian Kirksey first thing this morning. They have now made their second move, one which signals the end of an era for the Packers.

The Packers have signed the former Detroit Lions right tackle Rick Wagner as reported by Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network. The contract is reportedly worth 2 years and $11 million, which will be significantly less than Bryan Bulaga would be asking for and that he will receive on the open market. With Bulaga about to become a free agent, it seems as if the Packers are ready to move on.

Bulaga was drafted by the Packers in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft, and has been a trusted member of the Packers offensive line since he came to Green Bay.

Meanwhile, Wagner is a former Wisconsin Badger and fifth-round draft pick of the Ravens in 2013. He was cut by the Lions last week, and will be the likely starter at right tackle for the Green Bay Packers next season. He is looking to have a bounce back year on an offensive line that is coming off a great season.
