Year of the Receiver? Eh, not quite

Year of the Receiver? Eh, not quite
Last year's NFL draft class had a bounty of wide receivers. This year's? Well, Peter Schrager isn't sold on any of them just yet.

Special team ace White will stay in Green Bay
Tracy White, the Green Bay Packers' most productive player on special teams over the last two seasons, will be back in 2008.

White agreed with the Packers on a two-year, $1.8 million contract that contained a $250,000 signing bonus. White said Sunday that the Broncos offered him a signing bonus in the $500,000 range early in free agency but that fell through when they signed Seattle linebacker Niko Koutouvides.

"I love it in Green Bay," said White, who visited Denver and Pittsburgh during the first week of the unrestricted free-agent signing period before deciding to re-sign with the Packers. "Basically, I was talking to Green Bay the whole time."
