5 Players Green Bay Packers Likely to Sign in NFL Free Agency 2014

Green Bay Packers Free Agency

The 2014 NFL free agency is officially upon us. The Green Bay Packers are expected to be very active in free agency this offseason, much to the delight of their loyal fans. The rumors have already been flowing in regards to which players the team might sign. At this point, it’s all about dissecting fact from fiction, which is harder than it sounds with Ted Thompson at the helm. Regardless, here are five players the Packers could sign.

It’s no secret the Packers want to upgrade the safety position, which is where Mike Mitchell comes in. Green Bay has reportedly had discussions about him joining the ranks. His 67 total tackles, four sacks, four interceptions and nine passes defended in 2013 are certainly intriguing statistics. However, it will all come down to the price for Thompson, who won’t pay much more than .5 million per season.

Another position of need is tight end. With Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless likely gone, Green Bay must sign a tight end in free agency. Garrett Graham has showed steady improvement over the past three seasons with 2013 being a career year for the former Wisconsin Badger. Since the Houston Texans have yet to retain him, the Packers will be very interested to hold a conversation with him the first chance they get.

3. Jared Allen

Jared Allen may prove to be too expensive for the Packers. However, an inside source revealed that Green Bay is one of the few teams on Allen’s wish list. That alone is enough reason for the Packers to at least take a meeting to see if there’s a legitimate possibility that he could land in Titletown for a decent price. Allen wants to play for a contender and Green Bay will be able to provide that for him.

2. Lamarr Houston

The Packers are very interested in Lamarr Houston, which should excite fans in Green Bay. Unfortunately, his price continues to skyrocket, which means Thompson will evacuate immediately. The only way Houston lands in Green Bay is if his price comes down a bit. However, that appears unlikely. Regardless, he’s still someone to keep an eye on because the Packers’ desire to sign him is very real.

At this point, I would be shocked if Arthur Jones doesn’t sign with the Packers. The defensive end is a talented pass rusher who is even more productive when it comes to stopping the run. He’s exactly what Green Bay needs on the defensive line, especially if they don’t retain B.J. Raji. Jones won’t come cheap, but the Packers need to make a big move at some point and the time is now.

    Just another crack job. Go to ESPN.com rumors page, take the top 5 names associated with the Packers, and then write an article and claim that these are the guys who are LIKELY to sign.

    It’s just….absolute nonsense. There is an outside chance that they sign more than one of these guys, and with all the teams interested in Arthur Jones only an IDIOT would be “shocked if they don’t,” sign him. The Giants, the Bears, Colts, Titans, Redskins….and every other team with salary cap money.

    Well…so much for being “shocked,” if Arthur Jones doesn’t sign with the Packers. He’s already signed…and…not with the Packers.
