Green Bay Packers: The team is interested in signing Kansas City free-agent CB William Bartee and has made him a contract offer. The Chiefs would like to keep him and the New York Giants are also pursuing the four-year veteran. "Green Bay has made an offer," Craig Domann, Bartee's agent, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "But they need to increase it." Bartee, a former second-round pick, has been a backup three of the last four seasons. His agent said Wednesday that he is negotiating with all three and a deal should be done in the next three days.
New England Patriots: With WRs David Givens and Deion Branch emerging as two of QB Tom Brady's favorite targets, there was some speculation that WR David Patten would be looking for work by now. But apparently the Patriots aren't ready to get rid of the eight-year veteran. According to the Providence Journal, Patten received a $250,000 roster bonus he was due to be paid this week, confirming that he is indeed in the team's immediate plans.
