A roundup of what's happening on the Green Bay Packers beat.

GREEN BAY, Wis. – It won't soothe fans clamoring for the Packers to make some free-agent moves, but they should know general manager Ted Thompson did not take this week off.

In fact, it sounds like he has been rather busy -- or busier than usual in free agency.

At least two more players who signed with other teams this week revealed that they had drawn interest from the Packers. Former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle Al Woods was scheduled to visit the Packers on Thursday but he never made out of it Tennessee, according to the Tennessean newspaper, because he agreed to a deal with the Titans.

Likewise, former Indianapolis Colts safety Antoine Bethea, who signed with the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, told that the Packers were among the teams that expressed an interest.

Earlier in the week, new Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Red Bryant, who was released by the Seattle Seahawks, revealed he also had a visit scheduled with the Packers that he never made.
