The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel doesn't envision the Packers even making an offer to restricted free agent WR Jarrett Boykin.

Boykin entered the season as the Packers' clear No. 3 receiver, but got hurt and was passed by rookie Davante Adams and left in the dust. He played just 122 offensive snaps after Week 3. Even if the Packers can't re-sign free agent Randall Cobb, Boykin appears on his way out. He's a slow possession receiver.

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.

Packers FB John Kuhn plans to test free agency.

Kuhn made his second Pro Bowl this year despite playing just 249 snaps. He had to settle for a one-year deal with the Packers last offseason and could struggle to attract interest on the open market. Kuhn will most likely end up back in Green Bay on a team-friendly contract.

Impending free agent CB Davon House said he's ready to be a starter and would prefer to re-sign with the Packers.

"I know I can start in this league. That's what I want to do," House said. "I truly believe my film says it's time." At 6'/200, House has the size most teams covet in outside corners. The former fourth-round pick started 14 games in his four seasons with the Packers and received mostly positive marks in coverage. House has battled shoulder injuries in recent years. He's our No. 11 free-agent corner. The Packers will have an opening if they let CB Tramon Williams walk as a free agent.

The Packers denied the Rams permission to interview QBs coach Alex Van Pelt for their offensive-coordinator vacancy.

The Rams sent in requests for both Van Pelt and Colts special assistant Rob Chudzinski on Monday and both inquiries were denied on Tuesday. The Packers are notorious for blocking assistants from promotions outside the organization.

Packers signed WR Myles White, CB Devonta Glover-Wright, S Jean Fanor, LB Adrian Hubbard, C Joe Madsen, RB Rajion Neal, LB Joe Thomas, OT Jeremy Vujnovich and OG Josh Walker to reserve/future contracts.

A 2013 undrafted free agent, White caught nine passes across seven games in 2013, but never made it up to the 53-man roster in 2014. His most likely home next season will be the practice squad.

Aaron Rodgers (calf) expects to be back to full health in six weeks.

Rodgers was going to be hobbled in a potential Super Bowl appearance, but confirmed Tuesday that he would have suited up. Rodgers also admitted to being haunted by the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss. Despite Sunday's crushing defeat, Rodgers is the odds-on favorite for this year's MVP award.

Free agent Randall Cobb said his preference is to re-sign with the Packers.

Of course Cobb wants to stay with the team that drafted him, one that has a future Hall of Fame quarterback in Aaron Rodgers. That doesn't mean he'll be giving a hometown discount. Cobb, our No. 3 free agent WR behind only Dez Bryant and Demaryius Thomas, is going to fetch big-time offers -- likely in the range of the $45M extension with $15M guaranteed Victor Cruz landed. Considering Davante Adams and Jeff Janis are under contract cheaply, GM Ted Thompson may choose to allocate his funds elsewhere come March.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns are interested in Packers OC Tom Clements for their offensive-coordinator vacancy.

The Browns have yet to request permission to interview Clements, but the Packers don't have to approve that request. We're not sure why Clements would even want to leave Aaron Rodgers for offensive-coordinator hell Cleveland where they recycle play-callers on an annual basis. The Browns are going to have a tough time luring someone to that disaster of an offense that doesn't have a quarterback and seems poised to dump its lone playmaking receiver in Josh Gordon.

The Rams have requested permission to interview Packers QBs coach Alex Van Pelt for their offensive coordinator vacancy.

Van Pelt has been with Green Bay since 2012, first serving as running backs coach and then taking over as quarterbacks coach once Ben McAdoo landed the Giants' offensive coordinator job. We'd consider him an underdog for this Rams' gig if Rob Chudzinski is in the mix.

Packers WR Jeff Janis was inactive for the NFC Championship Game.

The buzzed-about undrafted free agent ended up appearing in only three games this season, catching two passes for 16 yards. With Randall Cobb headed to the open market and Jarrett Boykin a restricted free agent, Janis has a good shot at keeping his roster spot for 2015, and could even compete for No. 3 duties in camp. Catching passes from Aaron Rodgers, Janis remains a "hold" in dynasty leagues.

Jarrett Boykin caught only three passes for 23 yards in 2014.

Boykin went 0-for the playoffs. Boykin looked like an emerging player in 2014, but is now a restricted free agent with an uncertain future in Green Bay. Randall Cobb could be on the way out, but Boykin is miles behind Davante Adams on the depth chart. The Pack could decide they'd rather move forward with Jeff Janis taking Boykin's roster spot.

John Kuhn rushed twice for three yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss to the Seahawks.

Kuhn added a three-yard reception. Kuhn's second rush was initially ruled a one-yard touchdown, but was reversed on review. Kuhn "vultured" only one score from Eddie Lacy this season, and offers as little fantasy value as ever. The 32-year-old fullback is headed to the open market. He'll most likely end up back in Green Bay.
Jan 18 - 7:48 PM

James Starks rushed five times for 44 yards in the Packers' NFC Championship Game defeat.

Starks was targeted three times in the passing game, nearly hauling in a deep reception. His five carries were largely the result of Eddie Lacy battling some sort of second-half leg ailment. The owner of a career 4.3 YPC, Starks has proven to be an able "breather back," but has never suggested he's ready to be more. He's due a slightly-steep $1.175 million for 2015, but should be back in Green Bay. Starks turns 29 in February.
Jan 18 - 7:44 PM

Brandon Bostick wasn't targeted in the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss.

Despite the zero-look day, Bostick still managed to secure goat status, failing to corral a Seahawks onside-kick attempt late in the fourth quarter. Going on 26, Bostick has nice athletic upside, but caught all of two passes in 2014, playing 34 snaps. He's not guaranteed back at his $585,000 salary for 2015.
