That's what Andrew Brandt is hinting at today over at the National Football Post:
...as happens so often in football administration, no good deed ever goes unpunished. There are still a few players whose contracts have not been addressed and who are now asking, “What about me?” as they form a line at the door. The low rumble of discontent may pick up a notch soon in Green Bay.
Normally, I would dismiss this as idle speculation from a national pundit, but Brandt's in a unique position in that he is familiar with most if not all the players involved. He knows the agents, he still knows most of the front office people in Green Bay and he knows most of the players. If there have been whisperings of discontent, and I don't doubt there have been, he would know.
Not that this would be unexpected. The team still has a long list of restricted free agents who have not signed their tenders yet. Nick Barnett even joked about being jealous over on Twitter. Daryn Colledge was reportedly upset the Packers tendered him so low and that the team didn't want to talk extension at the end of the year - and now he's watched three guys get p.a.i.d. paid. It happens - guys see their teammates getting paid, and paid well, it's natural to ask "What about me?"
It will be interesting to monitor this throughout the offseason, especially as it pertains to the teams Restricted Free Agents who, when they sign on the dotted line, will be working under one year deals.
As Brandt says at the end of his post:
...the offseason is just beginning.
