Ranking the Green Bay Packers' Best Remaining Free Agency Options
Mike Roemer/Associated Press

The Green Bay Packers had a very interesting first week in the 2014 version of NFL free agency last week, especially on Saturday.

At the early stages of free agency, which began on March 11, general manager Ted Thompson was not making a peep about going after other free-agent players around the league, but instead concentrated on his own players who shared that same designation.

The Packers were able to re-sign cornerback Sam Shields, defensive lineman/outside linebacker Mike Neal, tight end Andrew Quarless and nose tackle B.J. Raji last week.

The Packers also lost two players to free agency, as safety M.D. Jennings signed with the Bears, and center Evan Dietrich-Smith signed with the Bucs.

The big news of the week for the Packers came on Saturday, when it was announced that defensive end Julius Peppers had signed with the Pack.

I had written that the signing of Peppers by the Packers was a definite possibility on two occasions early last week, here on the very first day of free agency, and also here.

The Packers still have some work to do in free agency as they try and get some more help to add to the depth chart before the 2014 NFL draft.

I believe that there are three players from other NFL teams that the Packers should take a close look at in free agency, plus there are at least two current Packers whom I believe the team will re-sign.
