Green Bay Packers News: A case for re-signing Nick Perry

The Green Bay Packers’ decision to sign or not sign Nick Perry is no easy one. Today’s Titletown Report features a case for keeping him in the building.

Good morning, and  welcome to the first Titletown Report of the week. The offseason moves on, and the focus is well and truly shifting towards free agency and the 2017 NFL Draft. We have you covered here at Lombardi Ave.

Free agency grabs the spotlight this morning, but for once not about players on other teams the Packers could (or should) attempt to sign, but rather one of their own.
