Packers re-signed RT Bryan Bulaga to a five-year, $33.75 million contract.

The Packers upped their offer at the 11th hour and were able to keep Bulaga from reaching the market, where he was certain to command more money as the top free-agent tackle. The soon-to-be 26-year-old was Pro Football Focus' No. 4 right tackle last season, excelling as a pass blocker. After taking care of Randall Cobb over the weekend, Green Bay was allowed to focus on Bulaga. The Packers will return one of the NFL's elite offensive lines and skill-position corps.

The Packers are "closing in on a deal" with RT Bryan Bulaga, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Green Bay is hoping to have a deal in place before Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline. The Packers reportedly upped their offer to over $6 million a year, which is still substantially less than he would have received on the open market. Rather than explore free agents, Green Bay seems focused on keeping its core together. Aside from the Packers, Bulaga was also drawing interest from Buffalo.
Mar 10 - 12:18 PM

The Bills have shown interest in free agent RT Bryan Bulaga.

They're also looking into Mike Iupati. Buffalo's offensive line woes are well-documented and with just over $25 million left in cap room, the Bills still have enough cash to land a top-flight free agent. Bulaga certainly fits the bill. We have him rated as the No. 1 tackle available in free agency. Bulaga is hoping to net annual earnings of close to $8 million.
Mar 9 - 1:19 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports the Jaguars, Redskins, and Bucs are interested in free agent RT Bryan Bulaga.

Bulaga, 26 later this month, can play both tackle spots, but would man the right side for each of the three teams listed above. He's said to be seeking $7-8 million per year, a price the Packers seem unwilling to pay after locking up Randall Cobb on Saturday. Bulaga is the No. 1 tackle available in free agency.
Mar 8 - 9:16 AM

Free agent RT Bryan Bulaga is seeking $7.5 million to $8 million per year.

A source told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel the Packers have set Bulaga's price at $7 million annually and are prepared to let him walk if he doesn't accept. Green Bay's fallback option is Don Barclay. Bulaga's market value increased on Saturday, when the Texans and Cowboys locked up Derek Newton ($5.3 million annually) and Doug Free ($5 million), respectively. Bulaga is the top tackle and arguably the No. 2 offensive lineman left in free agency, behind only Mike Iupati.
Mar 7 - 11:51 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy "definitely" wants to re-sign free agent RT Bryan Bulaga.

McCarthy added "I know Bryan wants to be back." Aaron Rodgers is already on the record as saying re-signing his right tackle should be a priority. Bulaga is Rotoworld's No. 1 free agent tackle.
Feb 19 - 3:29 PM

Aaron Rodgers said re-signing free agent RT Bryan Bulaga should be a high priority.

Bulaga, the No. 23 overall pick in 2010, finally got healthy in 2014 and shined. He started 17 games (including playoffs), excelling as a pass blocker for Rodgers. Bulaga, our No. 1 tackle available in free agency and just 25 years old, will not be cheap.
Jan 26 - 11:07 AM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (concussion) has been upgraded to probable for Week 16 against the Buccaneers.

This likely means Bulaga has passed the final hurdle in the NFL's concussion protocol. He will start against Tampa Bay.

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (knee) is active for Week 3 against the Lions.

It's a nice boost for the Pack, who were getting league worst right-tackle play in Bulaga's absence. Inactive for the Packers are QB Scott Tolzien, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, LB Brad Jones, DT Mike Pennel and WR Jeff Janis.

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga has been getting in limited practices this week, and has yet to be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets.

How Bulaga feels on Friday and Saturday will be the "final test." Typically, it would be in the Packers' best interest to get Bulaga at least one week of rest, but Derek Sherrod was so bad in his absence that they're apparently willing to push the envelope. Bulaga is still unlikely to return before Week 3.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky sets RT Bryan Bulaga's timetable for return at 2-4 weeks.

Demovsky believes that's the usual timetable for an injury like Bulaga's. It's definitely better news than an ACL, which Bulaga tore last year, costing him the entire 2013 season. The Packers will try to make do with Derek Sherrod in the meantime. Andrew Quarless will likely have to block more.

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga has been diagnosed with a torn MCL.

Although MCL tears don't typically require surgery, this one figures to shelve Bulaga for a month or more. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, it's still "undetermined" how much time Bulaga will miss. Losing Don Barclay during the preseason is a loss that's felt right now. Fill-in RT Derek Sherrod got abused by Seattle's defensive front on Thursday night. The Packers will play the Jets in Week 2.
Fri, Sep 5, 2014 03:17:00 PM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga has been diagnosed with a left-knee sprain, but the team believes he's avoided "major" injury.

Even a minor knee sprain could hold Bulaga out for multiple weeks, but it's a bullet dodged for the Pack after Bulaga missed all of 2013 with a torn left ACL. The news is even better considering how overmatched Derek Sherrod looked in relief. Bulaga has 10 days to heal up for the Pack's Week 2 tilt with the Jets. His status should be updated no later than next Wednesday.
Fri, Sep 5, 2014 12:09:00 AM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga was forced from Green Bay's Week 1 game against the Seahawks with a left knee injury, and will not return.

That's the same knee that cost Bulaga all of 2013 with an ACL tear. Bulaga wasn't carted off, but headed to the locker room midway through the second quarter. Derek Sherrod will finish the game at right tackle. It's a major concern for the Packers.
