Gs Taylor, Evans shore up Packers line

(TSX / STATS) -- DE PERE, Wis. -- In the spring of 2005, Green Bay Packers Pro Bowl guards Marco Rivera and Mike Wahle departed in free agency. Green Bay's offensive line play was atrocious that season and it took until 2007 before the Packers recovered.

In the last 12 months, Green Bay has lost Pro Bowl guards Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang. But the Packers seem to in far better shape with the emergence of left guard Lane Taylor and the signing of unrestricted free agent Jahri Evans.

"I'm very happy," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "I think our offensive line will compete to be one of the best lines in the National Football League. We're early in the process.
