Flanigan, a former Southern Door High School star and the son of former Packers linebacker Jim Flanigan Sr., started eight games for the Packers last season. The ninth-year pro had 46 tackles, tops among non-starters, and 4 ½ sacks.
Flanigan visited Jacksonville on May 3, but the Jaguars are just $129,000 under the salary cap and probably will have to wait until after June 1 to sign him. That's when teams can create salary cap space by releasing selected veteran players with cap-consuming base salaries. Jacksonville is expected to release linebacker Hardy Nickerson and wide receiver Keenan McCardell, which would reportedly free up more than $7 million in cap space.
The Packers may have an interest in both Nickerson and McCardell.
