Welcome to your Morning Buzz, rounding up news and views regarding the Green Bay Packers from around the web and here at PackersNews.com.

Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com presents his list of the top 25 prospective free agents for 2021. Two Packers are featured prominently:
5. David Bakhtiari
Green Bay Packers · OT · Age in 2021: 29
Despite a few short stretches of ordinary play over the last two years, Bakhtiari is a 28-year-old left tackle with four straight first- or second-team All-Pro nods. Considering how well older tackles have held up in recent years, Bakhtiari's next contract may still cover part of his prime.
6: Kenny Clark
Green Bay Packers · DT · Age in 2021: 25
Somehow still just 24 years old, Clark has improved every season in Green Bay. He's now one of the most dominant and complete defensive tackles in the sport.
Surprisingly, Packers running back Aaron Jones and center Corey Linsley failed to make not only the top 25 but also the 15-player "Just Missed" list.
