The article focuses on the football team Green Bay Packers. Regardless of whether QB Brett Favre returns, the priority will be acquiring running backs, interior offensive linemen and playmakers on defense. RB Samkon Gado is penciled in as the starter next year, but G.M. Ted Thompson will target a back in the draft and one in the free-agent market. He isn't a fan of signing free agents, but he has to restock the line, especially if he lets free-agent C Mike Flanagan go. A pass-rushing end, such as North Carolina State University's Mario Williams, would be ideal.
