No Packers-Anthony Hargrove deal -- yet
By Kevin Seifert
PALM BEACH, Fla. -- I know a lot of you have been asking about the status of free-agent defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove, who visited the Green Bay Packers last week, and to this point has taken no other visits around the NFL.
You're citing a Twitter account that appears to be Hargrove's, but is not officially verified but is implying he will soon agree to terms with the team.
Here's what I can tell you: Packers officials on their way into a meeting here Monday morning said there was no deal to announce. That doesn't mean they won't ultimately sign Hargrove, giving them two veteran free-agent signings in the span of a week, but it's not a done deal at the moment.
Obviously we'll keep you updated. As we discussed last week, Hargrove provides a versatile mix of pass rush and power who could play end in a 3-4 and tackle in the nickel.
