Here is a list of the best of the rest, and players that the Packers have, or should, consider signing:
Analysis: A lot depends on Brett Favre. If Favre retires, the Packers obviously will need a veteran to take over if Aaron Rodgers struggles, or at least back up Rodgers. Collins is the best of the bunch.
Analysis: The Packers need fresh legs at this position. After re-signing Ahman Green and Najeh Davenport, they won't sign another veteran.
Analysis: The Packers at one time drafted (7th round, 1997) Sowell, then released him in training camp. Once again, it will be the William Henderson/Vonta Leach show so the Packers won't be pursuing another veteran.
Az-Zahir Hakim (PR)
Michael Lewis (KR/PR)
Troy Walters (PR)
Analysis: The Packers are seeking a return specialist, but it's doubtful that they will pursue Walters or Lewis. Lewis is coming off a torn ACL that caused him to miss 14 games last year, and Walters might be a little too small at 5-foot-7, 172 pounds. But Packers could use another veteran receiver, so signing either Price, Johnson or White makes sense.
Analysis: The Packers won't sign any of these guys. They seem content with Bubba Franks, David Martin and Donald Lee.
Victor Riley (OT)
Analysis: The Packers need help at guard, but are determined to re-inforce the position with their current group of linemen, plus a few more picks in the upcoming draft.
Brad Hopkins (LT)
Analysis: If Green Bay was in position to make a Super Bowl run this season, they probably would pursue a veteran tackle. But the Packers are not expected to do much damage, if any, this season in the playoffs, so don't expect them to sign a veteran tackle.
Analysis: Veteran Mike Flanagan bolted for Houston, but the Packers have a long line of hopefuls to start at center, beginning with Scott Wells. He will be pushed by Chris White and veteran free agent Wayne Lucier.
Analysis: Green Bay signed free agent Billy Cundiff earlier this week, leaving Peterson and Edinger out on the street.
The Packers have high hopes for ex-CFL Jon Ryan, signed in early February. Ryan has a good chance of pushing B.J. Sander out of a job.
Analysis: After shelling out $14 million to UFA Ryan Pickett, the Packers will save their money to bolster other positions.
Gary Walker (DT in 4-3)
Analysis: None of these guys can help the Packers, plus Green Bay gave veteran DE Aaron Kampman a four-year, $21 million contract earlier this month.
Nick Griesen (WLB)
Analysis: The Packers have Nick Barnett in the middle and probably will keep him there. Green Bay also likes Roy Manning, who will be entering his second season, at the strong-side, or middle linebacker position.
LaVar Arrington (WLB)
Na'il Diggs (WLB/SLB)
Jamie Sharper (WLB/SLB)
Tommy Polley (WLB)
Chad Brown (SLB/WLB)
Jamie Winborn (SLB)
Peter Boulware (SLB)
Keith Newman (SLB)
Barrett Green (WLB)
Brandon Short (SLB, WLB)
Junior Seau (WLB)
Nate Wayne (WLB)
Warrick Holdman (WLB)
Keith Adams (WLB)
Analysis: By signing Arrington, the Packers would silence all of their critics who say they aren't making a big enough splash in free agency. Plus, the defense would gain a legitimate playmaker at a position that absolutely needs one.
Analysis: The Packers are planning to meet with Woodson this week. They also should consider Law. The defense desperately needs a veteran cornerback to take over for Ahmad Carroll.
