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.

Get It Straight: Jay Cutler Is Awesome!

Jay Cutler

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 […]

Flynn Won’t Be Traded, For Now

Matt Flynn

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 […]

Kato Kaelin’s Life Is Good Since The Packers Won The Super Bowl

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 […]

My Man Aaron Rodgers In Hollywood With His Girl Jessica

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a bad man. He wins Super Bowls, he vanquishes the memories of legends and he dates hot broads. Case in point, Gossip Girl star and Wisconsin native Jessica Szohr, who we first told you about in December. Well, our man ARod was in Hollywood at the Sunset Tower […]

Edgar Bennett May Be Being Groomed As An Offensive Coordinator

Edgar Bennett

The Green Bay Packers had to hire a new receivers coach, since Jimmy Robinson left to take the same position with the Dallas Cowboys.

They announced the move on Friday and it’s a familiar face, although not someone you would expect.

Former Packers running back Edgar Bennett will take over for Robinson. Bennett coached the Packers running backs for last six seasons. For the previous four seasons, he served as director of player development.

Lovie Smith Gets His Extension, Talks Up Cutler

Lovie Smith

The Chicago Bears have given coach Lovie Smith a two-year contract extension.

Smith, who was entering the final year of a four-year contract, made $5.5 million under his old deal, making him one of the highest-paid coaches in the NFL. Assuming he didn’t take a pay cut, Smith makes slightly more than Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy, who recently signed an extension paying him an average of $5 million a year.

Jenkins Bitter, Says He’s Gone

Cullen Jenkins

As far as he’s concerned, Cullen Jenkins’ career with the Green Bay Packers is over.

He’s a little bitter about it too.

The Packers did not use their franchise or transition tags — the deadline to use them was Thursday — and the team hasn’t approached Jenkins about a new contract.

Raiders May Still Look At Perry, Moss

The Oakland Raiders remain the only NFL team with a defensive coordinator opening and, for whatever reason, they’re in no hurry to fill it.

When head coach Hue Jackson does get around to interviewing candidates, Green Bay Packers assistant head coach Winston Moss and safeties coach Darren Perry figure to get a shot.

Packers Won’t Franchise Anyone

Cullen Jenkins

While several NFL teams have been slapping the franchise tag on their players, the Green Bay Packers won’t be using theirs.

There was speculation the Packers might use the tag on defensive end Cullen Jenkins or kicker Mason Crosby, both pending free agents, but Ted Thompson obviously thought the cost was too great.

Quitler

Remember when Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler quit on his team during the second half of the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers because his vagina hurt?

In case you forgot about it, I thought now would be as good a time as any to remind you.

Apparently Everyone Needs To Be Told: Asomugha Is A Long Shot

Nnamdi Asomugha

Personally, I thought we made it pretty clear. Soon-to-be-former Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha isn’t likely to sign with the Green Bay Packers, even though he’s expressed an interest in rejoining former teammate Charles Woodson.

Sure, it’s a wonderful thought, pairing Asomugha with Tramon Williams and moving Woodson to free safety. Asomugha, Williams, Woodson and Nick Collins — three All Pros and one in the making.

Make A Stupid Bet, Do Stupid Shit

Luke Ravenstahl

We’ve all made stupid bets.

Usually it’s because of that sonofabitch called pride, which needles you in your side just as soon as you’re forced to defend your home turf. A wise man once told me never to bet with your heart unless it’s a lead-pipe cinch.
