>>Packers Lose Hyde, Tretter; Appear Close To Losing Lang
(Green Bay, WI) — The Green Bay Packers have lost corner Micah Hyde and center J-C Tretter to other teams, and guard T-J Lang and running back Eddie Lacy are shopping elsewhere. Media reports say Hyde signed with Buffalo on the first day of N-F-L free agency for five years and 30-and-one-half million dollars, 14-and-one-half million of which are guaranteed — and Tretter agreed to a three year deal with Cleveland worth 16-and-three-quarter million, including ten-million guaranteed. The Packers have reportedly failed to reach a deal with Lang, and he planned visits to Detroit and Seattle — while Lacy was off to show Minnesota, Seattle, and Green Bay the progress he’s made on a surgically repaired ankle. The Packers avoided a third loss on the offensive line by signing Don Barclay to a one year deal for one-point-three million that includes incentives. Also, former Wisconsin guard Kevin Zeitler has reportedly signed a five-year, 60-million dollar contract with Cleveland, leaving Cincinnati after five seasons.
