Packers sign two, lose two in free agency

Change at 1265 Lombardi Avenue was swift on the first day of the NFL's legal tampering period.


Though the deals technically do not go final until Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers reportedly signed two new players and lost two to free agency. According to, tight end Jimmy Graham signed with the rival Chicago Bears after the Packers released him last week. Linebacker Blake Martinez found himself a new deal in New York, signing up for three years to play for the Giants.


The Packers were active in bringing in players as well, signing former Detroit Lions tackle Rick Wagner and former Cleveland Browns linebacker Christian Kirksey to separate, multiyear deals.
