The Green Bay Packers have made a plethora of moves this week, shoring up their roster with the likes of Za'Darius Smith, Adrian Amos, Preston Smith, and Billy Turner. Those additions figure to speed up the team's push for contention, especially after missing out on the playoffs the last two seasons.
Despite those additions, Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst says they were not made due to a belief that franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers' championship window might be closing.

Gutekunst has a much different approach than previous general manager Ted Thompson, who was never known to be this aggressive on the open market. He has truly asserted himself in his first two years running the front office at Lambeau, and is hoping to fulfill the yearly goal of the Green Bay Packers: make a deep run in the playoffs and win the franchise's fifth Lombardi Trophy with Rodgers at the helm.
