In free agency, the Green Bay Packers responded to a slightly disappointing 2012 regular season (and massively disappointing postseason) by letting wide receiver Greg Jennings and outside linebacker Erik Walden walk.
Neither of those players will likely be worth the balance of the big free-agent deals they signed with other teams, but no big additions and two subtractions is not positive math—especially when longtime leader Charles Woodson moved on, having lost his last useful step.cheap nike nfl jerseys,wholesale jerseys cheap
Fortunately, the Packers had a very good draft, landing a lot of talent with their 11 draft picks.
The headliner is defensive end Datone Jones, who's a perfect fit for the Packers defense. Second- and fourth-round running backs Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin are competing to help rejuvenate the Packers running game and restore balance to the Packers offense.
In rookie camp, though, the backs became both roommates and "buddies," as Lacy told Jason J. Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com. If they can put together a great working relationship, it'll solve one of the Packers' few problems emphatically.
