    Green Bay went head-to-head with a couple other franchises — one of whom has a highly-respected young GM — to get their preferred pass-rushers in free agency."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football AdviceCDTShareTweetShareShareCheese Curds , 3/22: Packers had to outbid other teams to land their free agent haulTrevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY SportsOver the years, one constant for the Green Bay Packers was an unwillingness to budge on the value of a free agent. The Packers would seemingly set a number and stick to it; if the player’s price went over that threshold, the negotiations were over.This year, however, the Packers apparently were a little bit more flexible about that rule than in years past. The details of how Adrian Amos and Billy Turner landed in Green Bay are not entirely clear just yet, but we now know that the Packers did get into a bidding war for both of their new pass-rushers, Preston and Za’Darius Smith. There are two possibilities here: either the deals still came in under the team’s maximum price for these players or else the team bent those rules a bit, knowing that they needed some urgent help on the roster. Regardless of which pathway these signings took, however, the fact that the Packers continued to negotiate after setting their initial number is in and of itself unusual.At first glance, this appears to be largely due to general manager Brian Gutekunst’s influence. Russ Ball still holds the purse strings to an extent, though perhaps even he could see the wisdom of making these significant additions. But it’s clear that Gutekunst values free agency more highly than Ted Thompson did, and perhaps he was willing to push Ball a bit to be more willing to open up to get their guys.It’s also worth wondering what had happened if the Packers had missed out on one or the other of these pass-rushers. Based on the deal that veteran Justin Houston just signed in recent days, it’s reasonable to think the Packers could have been in the market to sign him. Still Womens Tramon Williams Jersey , given the health and youth of their two new players, Gutekunst is surely perfectly happy with how it all worked out.Packers outbid Jets for Za’Darius Smith, Colts for Preston Smith | Packers WireThe fact that the Colts were highly interested in Preston Smith seems like a great thing; GM Chris Ballard has a great reputation for his eye for talent, so being able to land a player that he coveted speaks well of that decision. The Jets' front office is...let's say less highly-regarded, so the price tag for Za'Darius is at least a bit more concerning.Justin Houston contract: Colts sign LB to two-year, $24 million deal | SI.comThe Colts instead spent their $12 million per year on Houston after missing out on Preston. That's about $3 million less than Houston would have received from the Chiefs this fall, and $1 million less than Preston Smith's deal. However, the shorter term reflects Houston's age and injury history, both knocks on him compared to the younger Smiths.Green Bay Packers' Billy Turner ready to 'have my own impact' | Packersnews.comTurner's dad, Maurice, played three games for the Packers as a running back in 1985. Now his son is in Green Bay as well, and the Turners will be the third father-son tandem to suit up in green and gold.Ex-Detroit Lions guard T.J. Lang ready to retire from NFL | Detroit Free PressIt's apparently the end of the line for Lang, who was just released by the Lions a few weeks ago. He has certainly had an injury history, particularly in recent years Quinten Rollins Jersey White , showing that the Packers made the right decision in not paying him big money when he hit free agency a few years ago. Good luck in retirement, TJ!Raiders sign Vontaze Burfict, and now everybody wants them on Hard Knocks even more | SF GateRemember a few years ago when Burfict knocked out Brown with a dirty hit over the middle of the field, concussing the receiver and setting up the Steelers’ game-winning field goal? Now he’ll have a chance to lay dirty hits on Brown in practice!Packers Week 1 Injury Report: Oren Burks limited, Josh Jones out of Wednesday practice On Wednesday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers announced their first formal injury report of the 2018 season. The Packers listed just three players on the report, a good sign for their overall health heading into their week one matchup with the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.However, the three players on the report are all players who play up the middle of the defense, and they include one projected starter. That player is linebacker Oren Burks, the rookie and third-round draft pick out of Vanderbilt. Burks was tabbed as the starter after Jake Ryan’s ACL tear early in training camp, and he acquitted himself well in the first two preseason games. However, he suffered a shoulder injury during warmups of the third game against the Oakland Raiders and missed the final two exhibition contests.The good news on Burks, however, is that he was able to practice in a limited fashion Dean Lowry Jersey , suggesting that there is still a possibility that he may be able to play on Sunday at Lambeau Field. Reports as recently as last Friday suggested that Burks was “likely” to miss the game, but this is a positive step forward for him. Still, the team may prefer to start a healthy Antonio Morrison or Korey Toomer over Burks on Sunday.Joining Burks as a limited participant is fellow inside linebacker James Crawford, an undrafted rookie out of Illinois. Crawford was a surprise on the Packers’ final 53-man roster, and made the team primarily due to his special teams performances in the preseason. The final injury is the only one that kept a player out of practice entirely, and it is to a notable player, second-year safety Josh Jones. Jones missed practice on Wednesday with an unspecified ankle injury. After he started seven games a year ago, initially at the Will linebacker spot then later at strong safety, the Packers’ coaching staff slimmed down his responsibilities to the safety position this offseason. Jones entered week one as the likely backup to Kentrell Brice, though he is still likely to see significant snaps on defense.Stay tuned for updates, including the Bears’ injury report from Wednesday and both teams’ updates on Thursday and Friday.Packers Injury ReportDid Not ParticipateS Josh Jones (ankle)Limited ParticipationILB Oren Burks (shoulder)ILB James Crawford (hamstring)Bears Injury ReportDid Not ParticipateS DeAndre Houston-Carson (forearm/back) Limited ParticipationTE Daniel Brown (shoulder)
