We May Be Short Changing Aaron Kampman

Aaron Kampman

On the eve of free agency the Green Bay Packers face one of their toughest decisions on the future of defensive end/outside linebacker Aaron Kampman. The Packers have publicly stated that they want to resign Kampman, but they will have competition for his services. A week ago, it would have been fine with us if […]

The Inside Dirt on the Packers Restricted Free Agents

Nick Collins

The Green Bay Packers have submitted tenders to nine restricted free agents. The team hasn’t announced at what level they’ve tendered them, but some information has surfaced in the past 24 hours. Here’s a summary. Nick Collins – The Packers starting free safety received the highest possible tender, which is a 10 percent increase on […]

Kapinos Won’t Be Back With Packers

Jeremy Kapinos

The struggles of Green Bay Packers punter Jeremy Kapinos and the special teams as a whole have been well documented. Today, Kapinos found out he won’t return to the Packers in 2010 and to put it mildly, he’s pissed. The Packers tendered all of their restricted and exclusive rights free agents today, but Kapinos and […]

Some Interesting Free Agent Possibilities For Packers

Ted Thompson

Although there are players available – like Antrel Rolle, Dunta Robinson and Darren Sproles – who would make great additions to the Green Bay Packers in free agency, we all know who we’re dealing with here. We’re dealing with Ted Thompson and during his tenure with the Packers, Thompson has signed exactly one outside free […]

Packers Tender Blackmon, Williams; Colledge Has Competition

The Green Bay Packers used the original-round tender on cornerback Will Blackmon, who is returning from a knee injury. The tender is for $1.176 million and gives the Packers the right to match any offer Blackmon receives. If Blackmon signs with another team, the Packers would receive a fourth-round draft pick. Meanwhile, cornerback Tramon Williams, […]

Antrel Rolle Will Be Free

The Arizona Cardinals will cut safety Antrel Rolle rather than pay him a $4 million roster bonus on March 5, a move first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter. We talked about the potential of Rolle joining the Green Bay Packers, where he could replace Atari Bigby at free safety, a couple weeks ago. Now that […]

Tauscher Could Be On Browns List

Mark Tauscher

It’s hard to believe there will be much competition for a 32-year-old right tackle on the free agent market, but then, the free agent market isn’t very strong this year. So, Green Bay Packers right tackle Mark Tauscher, who will become an unrestricted free agent later this week, could have some teams kicking his tires. […]

More Tomlinson To Green Bay Rumors, But Sproles Is Now Free

After LaDainian Tomlinson was released by the San Diego Chargers there was immediately Internet speculation about him joining the Green Bay Packers. Subsequently, we told you why that makes no sense, but that didn’t stop none other than the San Diego Union Tribune’s Chris Jenkins from bringing up Green Bay as a potential destination for […]

Top-Flight Cornerbacks Available, Packers Unlikely To Act

Dunta Robinson

Make no mistake about it, the Green Bay Packers are in the cornerback market. Al Harris is rehabilitating a major knee injury and behind Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, who ended the season as the starters, the Packers are thin. There has been speculation the Packers might be interested in acquiring San Diego’s Antonio Cromartie, […]

Nick Collins May Hold Out

Nick Collins

All is quiet on the Nick Collins front and that isn’t good. The Green Bay Packers starting strong safety avoided offseason team activities last year because he was angry the Packers wouldn’t renegotiate his contract. Now, Collins is about to become a restricted free agent and there seems to be no movement on a new […]

Bears Targeting Kampman, Peppers

Aaron Kampman

The Chicago Bears needs a defensive end, that’s been established. Adewale Ogunleye is an unrestricted free agent and isn’t expected to be re-signed. Further, Gaines Adams, who the Bears traded a second-round draft choice for during the 2009 season, died in the offseason. Even with both of those guys, the Bears defensive line managed only […]

Packers Will Franchise Ryan Pickett

The Green Bay Packers will use the franchise tag on nose tackle Ryan Pickett, according to NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora. The move is somewhat of a surprise considering Pickett isn’t an every down player and the Packers chose nose tackle B.J. Raji with their top choice in the 2009 draft, but quality nose tackles are […]

Tomlinson To Packers – Why It Makes No Sense

LaDainian Tomlinson

You don’t have to be a San Deigo Chargers’ fan to be a fan of LaDainian Tomlinson. The guy is not only likable, but he’s been one of the best players in the NFL since 2001. If you’re a fan of the Green Bay Packers, you’ve probably had at least a fleeting visage of Tomlinson […]

Packers Extend Derrick Martin

Derrick Martin

The Green Bay Packers have agreed to a two-year contract extension with safety Derrick Martin, who was scheduled to become a restricted free agent on March 5. Martin, who was acquired at the end of training camp from the Baltimore Ravens, is entering his fifth season and was one of the Packers strongest special teams […]

Viable Options For the Packers to Replace Mason Crosby

Mason Crosby

Green Bay Packers’ kicker Mason Crosby had a terrible year in 2009 and the team was reluctant to make a change down the stretch, with good reason. There wasn’t a kicker on the market who was any better. Crosby made a career-worst 75 percent of his field goals. That ranks him 25th in the league […]

Antrel Rolle Could Be on Packers Radar

Arizona Cardinals’ free safety Antrel Rolle is a name that’s probably on the Green Bay Packers radar. Why, you ask? Rolle is under contract with the Cardinals. Well, that contract isn’t going to fly in Arizona. Rolle is due $8 million in base salary and a $4 million roster bonus on March 5. Although Rolle […]

Packers Should Follow Steelers’ Lead

Mike Wallace

The Green Bay Packers have been following the Pittsburgh Steelers lead for a few years. They build almost exclusively through the draft, they converted to the 3-4 defense, and the Packers even hired the architect of Pittsburgh’s original 3-4 defense to run theirs – Dom Capers. Last week, the Steelers made the announcement that even […]

Packers Off Julius Peppers’ List

Juliius Peppers

We’ve connected Carolina Panthers defensive end and free-agent-to-be Julius Peppers with the Green Bay Packers on a few occasions. So have several other outlets, but it looks like Peppers has already crossed the Packers off his list of potential teams. The National Football Post’s Andrew Brandt says there’s no chance Peppers will sign with Carolina […]
