Packers tender Barclay, Richardson but not Boykin

Josh Walker may have earned a spot on the Packers roster

Two of the Green Bay Packers’ three restricted free agents – offensive lineman Don Barclay and safety Sean Richardson – received qualifying offers from the club Tuesday, meaning the Packers clearly have both of them in their plans for 2015.

It also means the team will have the right to match any offer they receive on the restricted free-agent market.

Meanwhile, the Packers did not make a qualifying offer to wide receiver Jarrett Boykin, meaning he is free to sign with any team. However, the Packers could re-sign him at less than the one-year, restricted free-agent tender amount of $1.542 million.

Barclay, who missed last season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in training camp, was to be the sixth offensive lineman last year and would provide depth behind right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who agreed to terms on a five-year deal Tuesday. Richardson is a key special-teams contributor who began to see action on defense during the second half of the season when the Packers went to their “Big Okie” base package where they brought Richardson off the bench and took out cornerback Sam Shields.

As for their exclusive rights free agents, the Packers extended a qualifying offer to safety Chris Banjo but not to running back DuJuan Harris, making him a free agent.
