Packer Rundown: McCarthy ready for Rodgers if Favre retires; signings

Green Bay Packers' Head Coach Mike McCarthy says he's prepared to keep moving forward should quarterback Brett Favre retire.

On Fox Sports Radio Tuesday, McCarthy said he's excited about back-up Aaron Rodgers and how he's developing.

Rodgers would replace Favre should the three-time MVP decide he won't return for his 18th NFL season.

McCarthy said he was planning to talk to Favre Tuesday. Favre promises a quick decision this time.

McCarthy will hold his season-ending news conference today (Wednesday).

Running backs' coach Edgar Bennett said he and his colleagues sent the players away on a positive note Monday, despite their overtime loss to the New York Giants in the NFC title game.

Meanwhile, the Packers have agreed to contracts with 10 future free-agents.

That includes all eight members of their practice squad. Running back Corey White and receiver Chris Francies are the best-known among the group.

However there is still no word on the signing of defensive tackle Corey Williams. He says he prefers to stay with the Pack, but his position could be one of the hottest in free agency.

The other unknowns are backup quarterback Craig Nall, long-snapper Rob Davis and corner Frank Walker.

Walker told reporters he wanted to stand out more than he did and he was disappointed he didn't get to play more.

Green Bay also has two restricted free agents; defensive tackle Colin Cole and running back Vernand Morency.
