Jay Drowns/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Green Bay Packers are traditionally quiet when it comes to the free agent market in years past, but this year they’ve decided to add more impact players to a team that went 15-1 in the regular season. The team has agreed to terms with defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove.

Even though the Packers were the best team in the regular season, they lost their first and only playoff game of the postseason. In response, the team has upgraded at key positions, and Hargrove is the latest free agent to join the team.

Hargrove spent this past season with the Seattle Seahawks, registering 18 tackles and three sacks. While Hargrove may not put up the most impressive stats, he is considered an aggressive pass rusher who can also handle the run.

“When you think of this team,” Hargrove said, “you think of one of the most respected organizations in the league. For them to come after me is very moving. I feel blessed today.”

Along with Hargrove, the Packers also has added center Jeff Saturday and special teamer Jarrett Bush.
