Marshall Newhouse GB 2 Months
The Packers are not expected to re-sign free agent OT Marshall Newhouse.
Green Bay exhausted its patience on Newhouse, starting him at left tackle for two years in which he flopped miserably. He was also ineffective as a swing tackle this past season. Newhouse won't be a hot commodity in free agency.

Having lost his left tackle job to Bryan Bulaga, Marshall Newhouse will compete to start at right tackle in training camp.
The Packers moved Bulaga and Josh Sitton -- their two most accomplished linemen -- to the left side this offseason, and will trot out Evan Dietrich-Smith at center with T.J. Lang shifting to right guard. Right tackle is open to Newhouse, Don Barclay, and Derek Sherrod. We suspect Newhouse will end up as a swing lineman because he's versatile, but not a starting-caliber run or pass blocker.

One NFC scout told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that OT Marshall Newhouse is not an "ideal" starter.
"You have to do things in your protection scheme to give him help at times," the scout said. "You're not going to want to leave him alone every snap. ... He could be a swing guy." Beat writer Tyler Dunne thinks the Packers could move Bryan Bulaga to left tackle and start Don Barclay at right tackle. Barclay started four games last season. Dunne thinks it would be "smart to strike" on Alabama RT D.J. Fluker with the No. 26 pick in the draft if he were available.

Packers LT Marshall Newhouse's base salary will be up from $575,000 to $1.323 million in 2013 after he hit escalators in his rookie contract.
Newhouse started all 18 games at left tackle in 2012, including the playoffs. He's an above-average pass blocker, but struggles creating space in the run game. Newhouse will battle for the starting job this summer with former first-round pick Derek Sherrod, who is attempting to come back from a gruesome broken leg injury.

Packers LT Marshall Newhouse (concussion) returned to practice on Monday.
Newhouse had been sidelined since the Packers' August 3 intrasquad scrimmage. It shouldn't be a concern going forward, but is something to file away for if/when Newhouse suffers another concussion. OT Derek Sherrod (broken leg) remains out indefinitely.

Coach Mike McCarthy suggested that Marshall Newhouse is entrenched as the starting left tackle entering training camp.
"Marshall is at that point in his career where the people in the building have a lot more confidence in him than maybe the people outside," said McCarthy, praising Newhouse's athletic ability. "I think Marshall is going to be a good player for us. He made a huge jump last year and he's made another jump so far this year." Last year's first-rounder, Derek Sherrod (broken leg), will likely start camp on the PUP list.

Packers OT Marshall Newhouse allowed a team-high 10.5 sacks and 41.5 pressures in 2011.
A fifth-round pick in 2010, Newhouse made 10 starts at left tackle and three at right tackle after not appearing in a game as a rookie. His struggles could complicate the Packers' thinking on LT Chad Clifton, who is currently set to count $5.7 million against the salary cap during his age-36 season in 2012. If Clifton is released and Green Bay isn't ready to turn to Newhouse, RT Bryan Bulaga would likely be shifted to the blindside.

Fifth-round rookie Marshall Newhouse allowed zero sacks and just one pressure after taking over at left tackle for Chad Clifton in the second quarter of Week 5.
At 6'4/319, Newhouse is built more like a guard than a blindside tackle. He has excellent feet, though, and has caught on quickly as one of the team's smartest linemen. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Bob McGinn told SI.com's Peter King this week that Newhouse may end up beating out first-rounder Derek Sherrod to be Clifton's long-term successor.
