Almost as soon as Randall Godfrey hit the free agent market, the linebacker challenged Seahawks signed him for a $1 million signing bonus. That was probably too rich for the Packers to match with their snug salary cap. On the plus side, it looks like Kenny Peterson might just be a perfect replacement for Vonnie Holliday. Line coach Jethro Franklin and Joe Johnson both spoke well of him on Packer Plus and Sherman thinks Peterson might be able to start alongside Cledius Hunt at defensive tackle according to Pro Football Weekly. I still expect Gilbert Brown to be starting next to Hunt on opening day but with three starters on the defensive line who are known for missing time (Johnson, Hunt and Brown) the Packers need all the depth they can get.
