Packers | Re-signing Longwell the No. 2 priority

Rob Reischel, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports the Green Bay Packers No. 2 priority this offseason is to re-sign PK Ryan Longwell. The two sides remain far apart, though, and Green Bay is thinking long and hard about placing either the franchise or transition tag on Longwell. Longwell has made 81.6 percent of his kicks over his nine years with Green Bay. The question the Packers have to ask themselves, though, is if they want to pay top money to a kicker if they're in a rebuilding mode, as they appear to be. "There could be a roster massacre, I guess," Longwell said late in the season. "It depends on which way they see it going. I mean, there are schools of thought for both sides I'm sure."
