Amid stalled free-agent market, Packers remain on the hunt for wide receiver help

GREEN BAY — With a week gone by in NFL free agency and the Green Bay Packers having yet to address arguably the most glaring need on their roster — wide receiver — a familiar refrain can be heard from certain precincts in the fan base.
