The Green Bay Packers have yet to sign a free agent from another team, but that could change if they bring in former Oakland Raiders defensive lineman Vance Walker for a visit.
From Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com:
The Packers expect a visit from free-agent defensive tackle Vance Walker perhaps as soon as Friday. Walker, a starter for the Oakland Raiders last season, doesn’t have star power but could provide some depth on the defensive line. Walker visited the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday.
If the Chiefs are truly motivated to sign Walker, they may not want him to leave town before signing a deal.
The Packers might have their work cut out for them, prepared to offer a more lucrative contract, if they even hope to have the visit actually occur.
Should they sign Walker, he would be a new face on what could be a new-look defensive line in Green Bay with B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, Johnny Jolly and C.J. Wilson all free agents.
Friday morning on Cheesehead TV, we'll be interviewing defensive lineman Josh Boyd, and ask him the status of the position.
Boyd joins us at 8:30 a.m. CT on our morning talk show, Railbird Central. Our homepage will be taken over by the live broadcast at that time. Tune in.
