Packers moving forward without veterans Bulaga, Martinez

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers’ additions of linebacker Christian Kirksey and Rick Wagner this week signaled moving forward without two key veterans.

Longtime right tackle Bryan Bulaga has agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Chargers and linebacker Blake Martinez is joining the New York Giants. The Packers confirmed reports of their departures Wednesday on the opening day of free agency.

Bulaga has been a fixture at right tackle for the past decade. Martinez has been Green Bay’s leading tackler each of the last three seasons.
