Packers | Looking To Keep Longwell

The Journal Sentinel reports the Green Bay Packers have made a priority of re-signing potential free agent PK Ryan Longwell. They have already had begun negotiating with agent Frank Bauer during the season. He wants to stay in Green Bay and he has said he is open to signing a new contract before he hits the free agent market. Free agent S Darren Sharper figures to be the team's top priority, and the Packers also likely will tender first-round offers to restricted free agents such as RB Ahman Green and LB Nate Wayne. GM Ron Wolf knows the value of having a top PK. The bad news for Longwell is that there are several good kickers who will be lining up for free agency including Jeff Wilkins of St. Louis, Morten Anderson of Atlanta and Olindo Mare of Miami.
