When the Green Bay Packers were handing out what’s largely expected to be meaningless tenders to guys who have little-to-no chance of being restricted free agents when a new labor deal is reached, they also snubbed a few guys. Receiver James Jones, running back Brandon Jackson and safety Atari Bigby, all of whom would […]

The NFL and NFLPA have agreed to extend the collective bargaining agreement for seven days, so negotiations on a new labor deal can continue. The current drop-dead date for a deal is March 11 at 4 p.m. CT and the two sides will continue negotiations on Monday, avoiding a lockout, at least for now. Although […]

With the re-signing of A.J. Hawk and the declaration that Desmond Bishop is the Green Bay Packers No. 1 inside linebacker, there doesn’t seem to be much room for Nick Barnett in Green Bay.
The idea that Barnett would compete with Hawk to start opposite Bishop was floated by coach Mike McCarthy, but the thought is ludicrous.

The NFL and NFLPA have agreed to try to hash out a new collective bargaining agreement for at least one more day. With the current CBA expiring at 11 p.m. CT tonight, a lockout was expected, which would eliminate any contact between players and teams, bar players from team facilities, and result in salary cuts […]

A day after he was released, linebacker A.J. Hawk and the Green Bay Packers have the parameters of a new contract in place.
Hawk will reportedly sign the deal tonight before 11 p.m. CT, when either free agency or a lockout will begin. The 27-year-old will get a five-year deal.
Financial terms have not yet been released.

The case involving Green Bay Packers defensive back Brandon Underwood has finally been resolved.
Underwood pleaded no contest to one count of prostitution after being accused of sexual assault by two gold-digging whores, last June. He appeared in Sauk County Circuit Court Wednesday, was found guilty and fined $379.

The Green Bay Packers released linebacker A.J. Hawk, safety Derrick Martin and tight end Donald Lee, Wednesday.
Hawk’s release doesn’t come as a big surprise, considering the Packers had no intention of paying his $10 million salary, which would have been guaranteed on the first day of the league year.

The owners and players’ union are continuing to negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement and I heard it was actually going well today, as opposed to just about every other day, where little was accomplished. I figured with tomorrow being the official start of the league year things were picking up, but then I came […]

Buried at the bottom of an article in which Bob McGinn tries his best to create a not-enough-balls controversy amongst the Green Bay Packers receivers was this nugget: safety Atari Bigby won’t be back.
No, no one’s said those exact words. No, it isn’t a surprise the Packers would choose younger players to replace an oft-injured veteran who’s about to hit free agency.
The king of the mouth breathers and Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler can’t catch a break.
I guess that’s what happens when you give up during the NFC Championship game, spend the second half standing around on the sidelines looking stupid and then don’t say peep while everyone and his brother is trashing you in the media during the offseason.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the obvious yesterday, saying Desmond Bishop was the team’s No. 1 inside linebacker, but the rest of the group is surrounded by uncertainty.
The Packers confirmed Bishop was part of the team’s long-term plans after he took over for Nick Barnett and received a four-year extension in December. Meanwhile, Barnett and A.J. Hawk will be competing to start opposite Bishop.

Green Bay Packers quarterback was in Los Angeles last week hitting the Oscar party circuit.
According to the New York Post, he was also hitting on Black Swan star Mila Kunis.

Another day, another jerkoff defending Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. This time it’s Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz. Martz is here to remind us Cutler is tough and tell us he’s going to be an elite quarterback. You know, the same Jay Cutler that decided not to play the second half of the NFC Championship […]

Matt Flynn, the Green Bay Packers backup quarterback, has become a hot commodity since he started his first game in December. Flynn’s name has been tossed around as potential trade bait since then, but Packers general manager Ted Thompson doesn’t have any intention of moving him. “People are trying to get ahead of themselves, saying […]
You remember Kato Kaelin, right? That’s right — the guy who lived in O.J.’s guest house. Kaelin is also from Milwaukee and went to UWEC, so, of course, he’s a fan of the Green Bay Packers. Kaelin was on a show no guy can possibly watch, this week — The View. I mean, really. How […]
