Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers  from around the web and here at PackersNews.com. Grab a strong cup of coffee and get caught up on everything you need to know about the Packers.

We start with the team’s announcement that they have signed five undrafted free agents that participated in their rookie orientation camp this past weekend while also letting one of their long-snappers go:

Taybor Pepper took to social media to say goodbye:

Pete Dougherty highlights three undrafted guys to keep an eye on this offseason.

From Pete:

Last year the Green Bay Packers had six undrafted rookies on their roster for their first game.

Nothing like that will be happening this year. General manager Ted Thompson had his first double-digit draft (10 players) since 2013. That alone reduces the roster spots that will go to undrafted rookies.

But history says at least one and probably a couple undrafted players from this year’s draft class will make the Packers’ final 53 or at least play at some point this season.

So I talked to two NFL scouts about the Packers’ undrafted class, and here are three lesser-known players to keep an eye on this offseason and during training camp...

Be sure to check it out. Pete got some really interesting stuff from those scouts.

Ryan Wood has the latest on Packers director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst interviewing for the Buffalo Bills’ open general manager position:

Elsewhere, Packers safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix makes his first appearance on NFL Network’s Top 100 players, coming in at number 77:

Three years ago on this day I was drafted to the Packers now I'm number 77 on the top 100. I couldn't make this spot without faith, Hard work, leadership and my peers who paved the way and set a standard I will uphold. Darren Perry coach, I know you ain't on here but without you I wouldn't have developed so quickly as a player without you pushing me to do more, give more and not only in the classroom, but being able to take it to the field coaching me endlessly and never allowing me to be complacent even when I have a good game and thinking I'm the 💩 (pisses me off). I'm forever grateful for you Coach Perry!! (🐐) like you would say ha, let's take it even a step further. 2017 Is going to be great I'm excited I'll be ready for the season when it gets here until then I'm gone train 🏋🏾 and Hang. Do a lil bit of school work📚and enjoy my family and life. To my peers, it's a blessing to be recognized by you all and I'm coming for everything, even the Safeties who are recognized before me. 😎 #GOD100 #GopackGo #Top100 #77 #WantMore #21
