No, unrestricted free agents cannot start signing contracts with new teams yet, but their agents can officially begin negotiating with teams around the NFL as of 12 noon on Monday, which marks the start of the league’s so-called “legal tampering period.”With this phase of free agency underway, the Green Bay Packers are sure to be the subject of numerous reports and newsworthy items over the next few days. The team seems to be in the market for help on the front seven of the defense, at safety, and on the offensive line, among other spots. With around $35 million in salary cap space to use (for now), general manager Brian Gutekunst has ample resources to add a few key veteran players to the Packers’ roster at essential positions.Meanwhile, the Packers’ targets are sure to get plenty of attention from other teams as well, and news should be flying quickly starting on Monday afternoon. We’ll keep you up-to-date with all of the news and reports that affect the Packers here until free agency officially begins at 4:00 PM Eastern on Wednesday.Packers-related news & rumorsRE-SIGNING: TE Marcedes Lewis will re-sign with the Packers on a one-year deal (full article)RFA TENDER: WR Geronimo Allison received a right of first refusal tender from the Packers for one year and $2.025M. The Packers can now match any offer sheet he may receive from another team (full article)RELEASE: The Packers are cutting OLB Nick Perry as a conventional release. This will save the team approximately $3.3M in salary cap space in 2019, and they will not have any further cap charge for him after this year (full article)SIGNING: Packers and OL Billy Turner (formerly of the Broncos) agree to a contract for 4 years and $28M (full article)SIGNING: Packers agree to sign OLB Preston Smith (formerly of Washington) to a 4-year, $52M deal (full article here)SIGNING: Safety Adrian Amos (formerly of the Bears) will sign with the Packers for 4 years, $37M (full article here)SIGNING: OLB Za’Darius Smith (formerly of the Ravens) will sign with the Packers Brett Favre Jersey White , per Ian Rapoport.

However, they reportedly hope to wait until the “first wave” of free agency concludes, per Albert Breer of SI.The Packers once tried to trade for OLB Za’Darius Smith from the Ravens, per Peter King. Smith is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday, suggesting that Green Bay will be interested in him.The Packers are a team to “keep an eye on” regarding WR/RB/KR Cordarrelle Patterson (formerly of the Patriots), per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.The Packers are interested in bringing back UFA safety Ibraheim Campbell closer to training camp, per Michael Cohen. He likely would not be able to pass a physical and sign until the summer.The Packers will tender Reggie Gilbert and Justin McCray, per Rob Demovsky.The Packers will also tender backup offensive lineman Lucas Patrick, also per Rob Demovsky. In the not-so-subtle disagreement between Packers coach Matt LaFleur and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers regarding joint practices, Rodgers is the winner. As expected.After Thursday’s preseason game against the Texans, LaFleur was asked to address Rodgers’ pointed criticism of joint practices generally and http://www.packerslockerroom.com/authentic-josh-jones-jersey , specifically, the inclusion of close-to-live kickoff drills.After joking that he and Rodgers aren’t on speaking terms after Rodgers spoke publicly about something that should have been handled privately, LaFleur told reporters, “You know what? There’s a lot of things that a lot of players don’t like about training camp.”And then LaFleur basically conceded that Rodgers has a point.“From his perspective, I can understand where he’s coming from in some regard because it’s not like they’re playing, they run about four different coverages, so it’s not overly complicated,” LaFleur said. “It’s not like [Packers defensive coordinator Mike] Pettine throwing everything at you. So, I get it from his perspective. But at the same time, there’s 10 other guys on the field with him on each play, and it was great for us, especially when you talk about our run game getting some different looks to go against. I always respect his opinion, just like I do all our players. But I still think it was beneficial for us.”And then LaFleur basically conceded that, as to the strong criticism of kickoff drills during the joint practice Montravius Adams Jersey White , Rodgers was dead-on balls accurate.“The one thing that I will comment on that I thought that he was dead right on was when you look at the kickoff, they ramped up their intensity level and we didn’t match it,” LaFleur said. “It looked a little, we got it taken to us a little bit. That’s something moving forward I probably wouldn’t do again is those full covered kickoff drills.”All that said, LaFleur should have had to say none of that publicly. Because Rodgers shouldn’t have publicly criticized the coach’s decision to conduct joint practices or the manner in which the joint practices were conducted.It may be hard, given the intensely tribal nature of sports, for some fans to process this observation as anything but an attack on Aaron Rodgers, but it’s criticism that is warranted and deserved. If Rodgers or any other quarterback has a concern about any decision(s) that his coach has made, the best way to handle it is to handle it privately. Any coach of any team at any level would agree with that.Really, any manager of any business of any kind in any location would agree with that. Concerns about decisions made by the manager shouldn’t be aired out publicly, and any manager who gets called out publicly by one of the employees he manages will, if being candid, admit to being frustrated.
