Packers make offers to nine

Packer safeties Nick Collins and Atari Bigby, cornerbacks Tramon Williams and Will Blackmon, offensive guards Daryn Colledge and Jason Spitz, defensive end Johnny Jolly, fullback John Kuhn and tight end Spencer Havner all received tender offers from the Packers on Wednesday, according to a report in today's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. What the dollar amounts in each case were is still unkown.

Basically, these qualifying tenders mean that if one of these restricted free agents -- with the exception of Havner -- walks away and accepts an offer elsewhere, the Packers are entitled to compensation in the form of a specific round draft choice.

One of the players to whom an offer was not extended was punter Jeremy Kapinos. The Pack have only a street free agent punter on board right now, Tim Masthay, so they will be looking for help on the free agent and/or draft market for sure.
