"Really, you have to tell the guys he's going to be a backup to Brett," Rossley said in an article published by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "We told him we want Brett to stay as he can. There's no hiding that."
Verbally, Volek expressed interest in joining the Packers in any capacity. Financially, however, his asking price doesn't match that of a clipboard holder. His going rate is reported to be in the same two-year, $4 million range that eventual NFC Champion QB Jake Delhomme received last year to join the Panthers.
Volek played in seven games for Tennessee in 2003 with a start in their season finale victory over Buffalo (26-45. 295 yards, TD). On the season, he completed 44 of 69 passes for 545 yards, 4 TDs and one interception. The Fresno State product, who turns 28 next month, impressed the Packers in workouts with his strong arm and quickness.
