This is a complete assumption on my part, but I'm wondering if Gute is partly trying to load up on comp picks for next year, which is something Ted Thompson seemed to do, and this would be a good year for it as Packers as losing so many FAs.
If this is the case, then Gute would be targeting to sign their own and released players as they don't count against the Comp formula.
So just trying to create a list of released players.
Note, the editor is probably going to make this look horrible with all the copying and pasting.
