The first 24 hours came and went, and the Packers didn't make a move. Big-name players like safety Jairus Byrd, defensive end Lamarr Houston and outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware all were signed by teams other than Green Bay.
There's no doubt that all of the above players could have drastically helped the Packers win for the foreseeable future, but general manager Ted Thompson simply wasn't willing to pay, or overpay in some instances, for players.
This type of decision-making shouldn't come as a surprise to those that know how Thompson operates. However, there were still plenty of things that we learned about the Packers after the start of free agency.
