NFL Free Agency is officially here, and the next few days will feature several Green Bay Packers rumors. The Packers have been quite so far, but they might make a few moves. With that in mind, here are all of the interesting rumors and news tidbits on the Packers.
Danny Trevathan Wanted To Play For Green Bay
The Chicago Bears signed ILB Danny Trevathan earlier this week, but he wanted to play for the Packers.
"I wish they would have, but they didn't," Trevathan told NFL Network. "My guy Randall Cobb is over there, but they didn't so I'm here with Chicago."
Trevathan and Cobb both played at Kentucky. Adding Trevathan would have filled a big need at MLB, but the Packers might not have wanted to pay him. After all, the Packers rarely sign other team's free agents.
Perry Back With Packers

It's a one-year deal for $5 million for Perry. He hasn't been that great for the Packers, but he will help their pass rush.
The NFL announced the compensatory picks for the 2016 NFL Draft. The Packers are getting a pair of fourth round picks, No. 131 overall and No. 137 overall. The picks are the result of the Packers losing CBs Davon House and Tramon Williams last offseason.
