Packers offseason scorecard

Latest on team's UFAs, RFAs, ERFAs, players acquired and lost

-- LS Rob Davis, the team's oldest player, is a good bet to still be playing in Green Bay when he hits the big 4-0 late in the 2008 season. He remains one of the best at his specialty and commands the respect of a locker room filled with much-younger players.

-- TE Ryan Krause, a better receiver than blocker, offered little after being promoted from the practice squad at midseason.

-- QB Craig Nall returned to the team late in the season as the No. 3 guy at the position. Nall, though, isn't interested in continuing to serve as the caddie for both Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.

-- CB Frank Walker, the team's lone addition of note in the offseason last year, probably won't see a second season in Green Bay. The writing was on the wall when he was deactivated for the NFC Championship loss to the Giants, his former team.

-- T/G Tyson Walter spent the entire season on injured reserve because of a toe injury. The versatile, rugged veteran is worth bringing back to compete for a backup spot.

-- LB Tracy White was limited late in the season by an ankle injury. The special-teams ace figures to be back in a Packers uniform.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS (not tendered offers)
-- WR Carlyle Holiday (not tendered as ERFA), a converted quarterback, missed all but the season-opening game with a knee injury but, when healthy, has shown to be a dynamic situational receiver.

-- DT Colin Cole (tendered at $1.417M with 2nd-round pick as compensation) is a run stuffer, who figures to stay put and will try to rebound from a season-ending broken forearm he sustained in the Thanksgiving Day game.

-- RB Vernand Morency (tendered at $927,000 with 3rd-round pick as compensation) was relegated to a situational role after missing the entire preseason with a knee injury, isn't a must-have for next season but probably will be in the offseason competition for the backup jobs.

-- SS Atari Bigby thrived as a relentless, fearsome first-year starter but will have to rectify inconsistencies to remain in the lead role.

-- RB Ryan Grant proved to be a godsend for a previously anemic running game the second half of the season and can write his ticket as a franchise back by racking up proficient performances for a full season.

-- TE Tory Humphrey might be down to his last strike to overcome an injury history that includes a season-ending broken ankle suffered on the first day of training camp last year.

-- FB John Kuhn made his mark as a lead blocker down the stretch of the season, setting up an offseason battle with Korey Hall for the starting job.

-- WR Ruvell Martin has been a capable, tall target as a possession receiver but will be in a crowded battle to stick with the team as the No. 4 or No. 5 guy.

-- OT Joe Toledo: FA Dolphins; terms unknown.

-- TE Bubba Franks (released)

--DT Corey Williams: Franchise FA re-signed and traded to Cleveland Browns; $38M/6 yrs, $16.3M guaranteed
