DAVE TOLLEFSON TO VISIT GREEN BAY PACKERS (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/03/dave_tollefson_to_visit_the_pa.html)

"Giants unrestricted free agent defensive end Dave Tollefson will be visiting
the Green Bay Packers on Thursday and Friday a person with knowledge of the
impending plans has confirmed. That person does not have the authority to speak
officially for Tollefson or the team, and therefore requested anonymity.


<a href="http://www.jsonline.com/blogs/sports/144415475.html">The Milwaukee
Journal Sentinel first reported the planned visit.</a></p>


Tollefson began his career with the Packers after the team drafted him in the
seventh round of the 2006 draft. He then spent the entire 2006 season on the
Packers practice squad and was released after the season.</p>


A<a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/01/giants_vs_packers_dave_tollefs.html">fter
a brief stint in NFL Europe and with the Oakland Raiders</a>, he then spent the
next five seasons with the Giants, winning two Super Bowls with the team and
becoming a personality in the locker room. Last season was his most productive
as a pro. As the fourth member of the Giants' reputable defensive end rotation,
he accumulated five sacks in 16 games, two of which he started. </p>


He proved versatile, moving to the inside on passing downs in what became
known as the Giants' "NASCAR" package when the four defensive ends would line up
together. </p>


Tollefson, 30, <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/03/giants_free_agents_dave_tollef.html">visited
the Seahawks last Thursday and Friday."</a></p>

Hope we can keep him. Guy is a solid DE. Could be starter material I think
