    Good for Mike. I am surprised, however, that TT would spend that much.

    It wasn't a lot more than I thought, about 2 mil, I thought 10 per was going to be it. But I wouldn't say Ted is cheap, just selective and he pays his own players, he doesn't readily give out money to strangers is about how I view him. But he's offered some pretty good contracts to mostly deserving players over the years.

    Quick, call up the Jones and Hawk contracts. :) And, don't bother parsing this or the above posts to make your arguement - I just through this in for comic relief.

    I think this is a great call, but does this mean Raji won't be back? Are we planning on going NT high in the draft?

    Pretty much where Daniels' contract belongs. Per year, he's making about $43,000 more than Cameron Heyward on the Steerlers and $500,000 less than Calais Campbell. Just glad the Packers didn't have to match the Campbell contract like the Saints did with Cameron Jordan.

    And I really hope that the Packers don't offer Raji more than $1-2 million to come back...Raji has had a decent year this year (very good to start but has slowed since) but certainly nothing that shows he's an integral part of the defense going forward.

    Daniels was the must get. I figured 10 million a year so nothing out of the ordinary.

    Remaining free agents that I can think of.
    Raji - I really hope he is back
    Guion - fine letting him walk
    Neal and Perry - would like at least one back
    Heyward - I think Rollins and Randall have made him expendable
    Crosby - Must sign
    Starks - Really want him back

    None of these guys should really break the bank. Raji might cost more than I expect

    Does this count towards TT signing free agents?

    Actually Jones' 5th year option year would be 2017 and they don't decide on it until March. So they have him for 2 more seasons yet if they want.

    This counts as Thompson signing one of his own free agents. ;)

    IMO Daniels was a critical re-sign. Packer Notes writes:
    http://packersnotes.com/2015/12/done-deal-for-daniels/

    What this means to me is Thompson and staff can check off their most important re-signing for the coming off season. As Rodney at Packers Notes mentions, next in line are likely Crosby, Raji, Starks, Neal, Perry , and Goode.

    I like Crosby well enough, but if it takes the going rate of $4M or so a year, I hope they move on and draft a kicker late. Crosby is the very definition of an average kicker.

    Starks is getting up there, but it'd be nice if they can bring him back cheap in a similar role.

    I like Mike Daniels A LOT. He's easily the best defensive lineman the Packers have had since Cullen Jenkins. With that being said, that is a ton of money for a 3-4 DE. Glad he'll be a Packer in his prime.

    I got to be honest, I'm fine if the Packers lose all of the guys listed above. Crosby is a very good kicker, but he becomes replaceable if he wants to be in that $4M/year range. I'd rather the Packers sign Terrance Knighten to play the nose. Neal and Perry are good rotation guys.... Starks has his moments... Don't underestimate the value of a good long snapper.

    I thought so, but rhetoricalbut now the question is does it or doesn't it. Someone after posted that it counts as signing TT's own free agent, and I can't figure out how signing someone that isn't a free agent counts as signing a free agent.

    C'mon, it's locking up a player who would have been a UFA at the end of this season. It's no different then signing him to a contract the day before the UFA signing period begins. Signing UFAs from your own roster isn't infusing new talent into the team, but it is retaining talent.
