Jones, Jackson Were Tendered

James Jones

Despite initial reports to the contrary, the Green Bay Packers did tender potential restricted free agents James Jones and Brandon Jackson, last week.

Both Jones and Jackson have four years of service. Under the rules of the 2010 collective bargaining agreement, they would be restricted free agents. Under the rules of the previous agreement, they would be unrestricted, which is probably what they’ll be when a new labor deal is signed this year.

Would The Real Jay Cutler Please Stand Up?

Jay Cutler

I’m not clever enough to write an entire article referencing Eminem’s popular song in witty sorts of ways, nor would I want any of you to think I’m a fan of his. So, the analogies cease here and onto the real question: does anyone else find it hilarious that Jay Cutler’s namesake is this meathead? […]

They’re Making Fun Of Brett Favre’s Penis At Mardi Gras

I’ll make this short and sweet because I was doing just fine not talking about Brett Favre or his penis.

The satirical Krewe D’Etat, which holds their own parade the Friday before Fat Tuesday at Mardi Gras, had a float featuring none other than former Minnesota Vikings quarterback Brett Favre taking a pic of his tiny penis.

Packers Did Not Tender Jackson, Jones Or Bigby

James Jones

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 […]

Lockout Avoided?

DeMaurice Smith

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 […]

Packers Sign Charlie Peprah To New Deal

Charlie Peprah

The Green Bay Packers remained busy before the potential work stoppage, signing safety Charlie Peprah to a two-year deal, according to Fox Sports Adam Caplan.

The deal is reportedly worth $2.3 million.

Packers Will Trade Or Release Barnett

Nick Barnett

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.

Packers Must Know Something Top Secret About Free Agency

Daryn Colledge

The Green Bay Packers are made some strange moves on Wednesday, when they tendered free-agents-to-be guard Daryn Colledge, kicker Mason Crosby and fullback John Kuhn.

Colledge and Crosby received second-round tenders and Kuhn received the lowest tender.

Here’s why all none of this makes any sense.

No NFL Lockout For At Least One More Day

Roger Goodell

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 […]

Aaron Rodgers Douses Mila Kunis Rumors

A couple Green Bay Packers are getting a little good-natured ribbing in on Twitter.

Linebacker Clay Matthews accused quarterback Aaron Rodgers of going Hollywood, after the Rodgers was spotted with Black Swan star Mila Kunis at a party in Hollywood.

A.J. Hawk Will Sign New Deal Today

A.J. Hawk

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.

Brandon Underwood: No Contest Plea In Prostitution Case

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.

A.J. Hawk, Two Others Get The Ax

A.J. Hawk

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.

With Lockout Seeming Likely, Owners Take A Blow

DeMaurice Smith

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 […]

Market, Packers Restocked Offense May Mean Kuhn Doesn’t Return

John Kuhn

The Green Bay Packers appear to be willing to let fullback John Kuhn test the market in free agency.

Kuhn’s agent says the Packers haven’t been in touch about a new contract and Kuhn could be an attractive option to a team looking for a lead blocker and power runner.

Goodbye, Atari Bigby

Atari Bigby

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.

Now Naked Guys Are Cursing Jay Cutler Before Getting Arrested

Jay Cutler

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.

Bishop Is Top Inside Linebacker, Hawk Negotiations Going Nowhere

Desmond Bishop

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.

Colledge’s Days As A Packer Probably Over

Daryn Colledge

Daryn Colledge has never been the Green Bay Packers best offensive lineman.

In fact, he’s probably the weakest of the team’s starting five, but he had a decent 2010 season and again proved to be one of the Packers most durable players.

Rodgers Reportedly Working Mila Kunis

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.
