ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli is reporting the Packers have agreed to terms with tight end Wesley Walls on a one-year deal worth $755,000 and a $25,000 signing bonus. Walls would be the second tight end signed by the Packers in two days, following the one-year contract given to Luther Broughton on Sunday. Wes was limited to 19 receptions—his lowest output since 1991—last season by injuries and a Panthers offense that features the running game instead of the pass. Pasquarelli specifically mentions in his report that the Packers think Walls can be an effective red zone weapon.

Think David Martin and Tyrone Davis can read the writing on the Green and Gold wall? One or both of them could be released, as Davis is again out of shape and Martin hasn't practiced since injuring his hamstring on the second day of training camp. Walls will not threaten Bubba Franks' job as the starter, but he could siphon off some of his touchdowns. And as fantasy players know, Franks is much more of a scoring threat than a yardage threat. Walls had a great workout for the Packers last week. He reportedly is 100 percent—or at least as 100 percent as a 37-year-old football player can be. Moreover he is a close friend of Brett Favre and feels comfortable in the West Coast offense. He won't crack our top 20 tight ends just yet, but this is a situation worth watching.

Be a shame for bubba owners if walls does start to take some TD's away from him.
