Report: Colledge unhappy in Green Bay
Daryn Colledge is not doing cartwheels over the second-round tender he received from the Green Bay Packers. In fact, Colledge would like a way out of Green Bay but that might be a tough ticket to come by based on the rocky season he just completed.
The Packers, right now, are planning to have him and Jason Spitz, another restricted free agent, compete for the starting left guard job. But the entire line is in flux as left tackle Chad Clifton and right tackle Mark Tauscher have uncertain futures. About the only thing settled is that Scott Wells will be the center and Josh Sitton will man right guard.
“If it's a second round, maybe I have a chance to move," Colledge said on KTIK in Boise, Idaho, Wednessay night, according to Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Maybe I could be coming to a city near you."
Bedard reports that it is no secret Colledge would like to leave the Packers. He started last season at left guard and was forced to spend time at left tackle when Clifton was injured. He didn’t play real well in either spot, and thus the plan is for a competition at left guard.
With a second-round tender, it will be hard for Colledge to drum up interest as a restricted free agent, but stranger things have happened. Stay tuned because it’s a line in flux.
