Packers signed WR Geronimo Allison to a one-year contract.

Allison was an exclusive rights free agent, so his only options were to sign the tender or sit out the season. Packers also re-signed WR Michael Clark, CB Donatello Brown, QB Joe Callahan, FB Joe Kerridge, OT Adam Pankey, OG Justin McCray, OG Lucas Patrick, and S Jermaine Whitehead.

Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson reports Aaron Rodgers is both "frustrated" and "emotional" because he was not consulted before the Packers made some significant personnel decisions this offseason.

Robinson reports the specific moves which have Rodgers miffed are the decisions to cut ties with Jordy Nelson and QBs coach Alex Van Pelt. "Both of those decisions were made without him," a source told Robinson. "In both situations, he had no influence with [the front office] before anything went down." Rodgers made some noise about the Van Pelt decision when it happened, calling it "curious" and "interesting" before making it clear he was not consulted about the move. There clearly seems to be some friction between Rodgers and the front office, and that could prove troublesome as the two sides look to work out a mega-extension this summer. Rodgers has two more years left on his deal.

Packers re-signed CB Davon House to a one-year contract.

House struggled through a back injury in the latter half of 2017. Prior to that the team had enough confidence in him to shadow both Mike Evans and Josh Gordon. House and Tramon Williams will tutor the youth behind them, including 2017 second-round pick CB Kevin King.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said people will "see a bigger, stronger Ty Montgomery this year."

Montgomery stuck around in Green Bay over the offseason to work with Packers strength and conditioning coordinator Mark Lovat in hopes of improving his durability. "I know that I can be a really good football player; I just need to stay healthy," Montgomery said. "I’m looking forward to getting one full healthy season under my belt." Unlikely to get true lead-back workloads with Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones also vying for touches, Montgomery should have a better shot to stay healthy this season, but that competition also makes him much less interesting from a fantasy perspective.

TMZ Sports reports Packers WR Trevor Davis was arrested for joking about smuggling a bomb into LAX on Sunday morning.

While checking in for a flight to Hawaii, Davis allegedly made a joke about a bomb being in his bag. "Did you remember to pack the explosives," Davis allegedly asked his travel companion while being asked standard security questions by the check-in attendant. TMZ reports he was booked for misdemeanor criminal threats. Hopefully, this is the last we hear of the absurd situation.

Free agent RG Jahri Evans said he wants to continue his career.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported the Packers were unsure if Evans wanted to keep playing, but the guard said he will play again if can find the right situation. "My goal is, I wanted to win another Super Bowl," Evans said. "So that’s my focus right now." Evans added he is "not opposed" to returning to Green Bay.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky believes Justin McCray could take over at right guard for the Packers.

Jahri Evans held down the right guard spot last season, but he is a free agent and might be looking to retire. McCray saw his first real action in the NFL last season, playing 595 mostly below average snaps at several positions. Perhaps he can take a step forward if allowed to just focus on guard, but that is at best a projection.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky writes the Packers do not know if RG Jahri Evans wants to continue his career.

Evans played well over 912 snaps for the Packers last season after signing a one-year deal last April. He will turn 35 in August, however, and may not want to give it another go. Even if he does, Demovsky thinks the Packers will likely move on. Justin McCray, who finished last season at right tackle, could be an option at right guard if Evans moves on.

Packers signed CB Tramon Williams, formerly of the Cardinals, to a two-year, $10 million contract.

Williams returns to Green Bay after spending his first nine NFL seasons there, then bouncing from the Browns to Arizona the past three years. Williams solidified the Cardinals' No. 2 corner job across from Patrick Peterson in 2017, but he just turned 35 and is a short-term fix at best. The Packers became desperate at cornerback after the Bears matched their offer sheet to Kyle Fuller.
Mar 22 - 4:26 PM

Packers agreed to terms with DE Muhammad Wilkerson, formerly of the Jets.

Wilkerson shopped his wares on visits with the Redskins and Chiefs, but a reunion with old Jets DC Mike Pettine was always in his best interests. Wilkerson had a very-public falling out with Jets management the past two years, but he remained an effective player on the field, and was dominant during his time with Pettine. Wilkerson is only 28 years old. He'll add disruptive interior ability against both the run and pass to a defensive front that needed help.
Mar 13 - 8:24 PM

Packers signed TE Jimmy Graham, formerly of the Seahawks, to a three-year contract.

Graham appeared headed for a reunion with the Saints, but the sides couldn't figure out the financials. Graham is coming off his first double-digit touchdown campaign since 2014 but saw his yards per catch crater from 14.2 to 9.1 last season. The drop off came even as Graham was another year removed from his devastating knee injury. Now 31, he required frequent maintenance days in Seattle. Despite his advancing age and seeming loss of a step, Graham is an intriguing pairing with a quarterback who at one point coaxed an eight-score season out of Richard Rodgers.
Mar 13 - 4:15 PM

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports talks between the Saints and free agent Jimmy Graham have "stalled."

Per Russini, both sides remain hopeful of getting a deal done. The Packers reportedly maintain interest. Graham should be signing on someone's dotted line by Wednesday evening.
Mar 13 - 2:09 PM

Packers tendered offers to exclusive rights free agents WR Michael Clark, OG Justin McCray, and CB Donatello Brown.

Clark played 75 offensive snaps in Weeks 16 and 17 last season as a rookie UDFA, catching just 4-of-14 targets for 41 yards. McCray started eight games at right tackle (six) and left guard (two) and could start at guard in 2018.
Mar 12 - 6:22 PM

NFL.com's Mike Garofolo reports the Packers have "reached out" to free agent Jimmy Graham.

New GM Brian Gutekunst has signaled he will be much more active in free agency than Ted Thompson. The Packers had a huge hole at tight end last season after Martellus Bennett didn't work out. Graham remains a touchdown-scoring force but didn't offer much after the catch in 2017.
Mar 12 - 1:23 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Saints have "strong interest" in free agent Jimmy Graham.

Rapoport's colleague Tom Pelissero had a similar report a couple weeks ago. New Orleans still owes Coby Fleener some guaranteed money, but it does not look like that will stop them from going hard after the position this offseason. The Ravens are another potential fit.
