What We've Learned About the Green Bay Packers After the Start of Free Agency

Free agency has certainly started, but it doesn't seem like Ted Thompson knows that.

Free agency has officially begun in the NFL, and it seems like everyone forgot to tell the Green Bay Packers about it.

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.
