It is no secret that the Green Bay Packers hate overpaying for players in free agency. That goes for re-signing their own players as well as signing anyone from other organizations.

The latest of these departures, guard T.J. Lang,...

Packers mock draft: Filling T.J. Lang's void in the first round
