NFC Rumors: Bears, Buccaneers, Packers, Rams

     

Bears

Buccaneers

Packers

According to Bob McGinn of BobMcGinnFootball.com, the Packers are planning to make a “strong run” at signing Rams free agent CB Trumaine Johnson next week.

“Last week, a source said the Packers planned to make a strong run at 28-year-old Ram Trumaine Johnson, probably the best cornerback on the unrestricted free-agent market,” McGinn writes, via PackersWire.com.

“The problem is that Johnson might warrant a contract averaging about $15 million per year, and unless the Packers either cut or exact pay reductions from wide receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson it might be a stretch to assume they can afford Johnson.”

  • The Packers made the decision to trade former first-round CB Damarious Randall to the Browns in return for QB DeShone Kizer and a swap of draft picks. (NFLTR)
  • Rob Demovsky reports that the Packers’ committee of veteran players suggested that the team release Randall last year after his mid-season antics led to him being benched. However, the Packers stuck by him.
  • There are some rumors that the Packers nearly traded Brett Hundley to the Titans before Tennessee back out and the Raiders could have interest in him for a late-round pick. (Jersey Al)
  • At the Combine, FSU DB Derwin James mentioned that the Packers spoke to him specifically about playing slot cornerback, which Ryan Wood didn’t think made a lot of sense at the time. However, with the Packers trading Randall, this could be something to consider for Green Bay.
