Packers Set to Be More of a Player in Free Agency in 2017?

The Packers under General Manager Ted Thompson have not been major players in free agency but that might be changing, Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reports.

Appearing on Thursday’s edition of NFL Total Access, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport relayed expectations that Green Bay will be more aggressive than usual this offseason.

“From what I’m told,” Rapoport said, “I would think the Packers are going to go and get some free agents this year along with trying to re-sign Jared Cook — which is a priority for them.”

That’s not to say Thompson is ready to go on a shopping spree. During Thursday’s season-ending press conference, Mike McCarthy reminded reporters that Thompson still has the same philosophy of building through the draft, re-signing his homegrown talent and using the open market judiciously.
