While Ted Thompson is no doubt having a difficult time these days deciding whether or not to re-sign free agents such as WR James Jones, OLG Daryn Colledge and RB Brandon Jackson, among others, it could seem like a walk in the park compared to the challenging free-agent decisions the Packers' GM might be forced to consider next offseason. Heading the list of potential Packers free agents in 2012 are two key offensive weapons — TE Jermichael Finley, who, by all accounts, is anticipating a sizable raise, and RB Ryan Grant, who suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week One last season. With it seeming like a long shot that the Packers would be willing to re-sign both Finley and Grant to lucrative new deals, it's a good bet their contract status might have factored into the selections of RB Alex Green (third round) and TEs D.J. Williams (fifth round) and Ryan Taylor (seventh round) in this year's draft.
