Tauscher back with the Pack!

According to an article on by Jason Wilde and citing NFL sources, and as hinted to Friday by head coach Mike McCarthy, the Packers have reached agreement with veteran right tackle Mark Tauscher on a reported two-year deal that will likely allow "Tausch" to finish his career with the team that drafted him, his home state team.

Returning to the Packers late last season after coming off a serious knee injury and rehab, Tauscher helped reestablish solid offensive line play down the stretch. He may not be flashy, and he may be getting a bit long in the tooth at age 33 (as of this June), but he is solid. Combined with the re-signing of LT Chad Clifton last week, the Pack have returned their starting tackles to the roster, giving them the opportunity to bring in and nurture the necessary replacements for either this year or a year or two down the line. QB Aaron Rodgers will have good security blankets on both ends of the line for at least this season and hopefully beyond.
