Colt Lyerla

After getting a tryout at their rookie camp, scrapheap tight end Colt Lyerla is now a member of the Green Bay Packers. This should be interesting to watch.

Packers will Try to Turn Raymond Webber Into a Tight End

Raymond Webber

The Green Bay Packers have signed tight end Raymond Webber, who isn’t a tight end at all. But hey, the Packers will attempt to turn him into one. You can never have enough tight ends.

Packers Have Signed Kahlil Bell

Kahlil Bell

The Green Bay Packers have signed running back Kahlil Bell, who hasn’t played football this season. Why do they need another running back? Probably don’t.

Packers Claim Receiver Chris Harper

The Green Bay Packers have claimed receiver Chris Harper on waivers. Harper was a fourth-round draft pick of the Seattle Seahawks this season. Injury relief.

David Fulton and Aaron Rodgers

The Green Bay Packers signed small-school safety David Fulton earlier this week and he seems like a nut job. Here’s his obligatory photo with Aaron Rodgers.

Packers Try to Sign Top CFL Lineman, Then Shoo Him Away

Jovan Olafioye

The Green Bay Packers wanted to sign Jovan Olafioye, the top lineman in the CFL, but their medical staff killed the deal. Seems logical, right?

Packers Ink Another Contract Extension

No, it’s not nearly as exciting as linebacker Desmond Bishop’s contract extension, but the Green Bay Packers did ink another player to a contract extension, last week. Wait for it… wait for it… long snapper Brett Goode! So, the Packers won’t have to worry about a long snapper for a while, which is Goode. Ay […]

Francois, Gordy Are Your Newest Packers

The Green Bay Packers filled the two roster spots vacated when they placed Brandon Chillar and Spencer Havner on injured reserve by promoting Robert Francois and Josh Gordy from the practice squad. Francois, a linebacker, was on the Packers’ roster for four games earlier this season. He was originally promoted from the practice squad prior […]

Packers Keep Stockpiling Linebackers

After signing two linebackers yesterday, the Green Bay Packers signed a third, today. Erik Walden, a 6-2, 250-pound outside linebacker from Middle Tennessee State, was added to the Packers roster this morning. Walden is in his fourth year in the NFL. He spent his first season in Kansas City and the past three with Miami. […]

Packers Acquire Linebackers Briggs, Wilhelm

The Green Bay Packers have picked up a pair of linebackers, claiming Diryal Briggs off waivers from Denver and signing Matt Wilhelm. Briggs was released on Monday, a week after being promoted from the Broncos practice squad. The 6-4, 250-pound outside linebacker entered the league in 2009 as an undrafted free agent from Bowling Green. […]

Packers Add Linebacker, Josh Bell To IR

Josh Bell

The Green Bay Packers did indeed add a linebacker to the mix today, but not anyone of note. The Packers were forced to make a move after Clay Matthews went down with a hamstring injury on Saturday. Only six of the 11 linebackers on the roster practiced yesterday. Matthews is expected to be out at […]

Johnny Jolly Signed His Tender

Green Bay Packers’ defensive end Johnny Jolly signed his tender yesterday, according to the Journal Sentinel’s Greg Bedard. It’s unclear whether the Packers’ other two remaining unsigned restricted free agents — Tramon Williams and Atari Bigby — signed theirs. The Packers notified all three players they would reduce the tenders to 110 percent of their […]

Packers Sign Graham Harrell

We told you last week the Green Bay Packers were planning on working out former Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell. Today, the team not only worked out, but signed Harrell. Harrell, who was a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2008, has never really gotten a shot in the NFL after throwing for 5,111 yards and 45 […]

Daryn Colledge Signs Tender

What exactly took so long is unclear, but Green Bay Packers’ left guard Daryn Colledge finally signed his restricted free agent tender and reported to Green Bay on Monday. Perhaps the idea that Colledge was angry with the Packers for either not tendering him at the first-round level or he wanted out of town were […]

Charlie Peprah Back In Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers finally made their big offseason free agent signing by bringing in safety Charlie Peprah, who was with the team from 2006-08 before spending last year with the Atlanta Falcons. Peprah notched one tackle in two games for Atlanta in 2009. He was released by the Packers following training camp, last season. […]

Packers’ Undrafted Free Agent Round-up

The Green Bay Packers signed several undrafted free agents following the seven-round NFL Draft. Those players are as follows. Miami cornerback Sam Shields Shields is a speed demon. He ran the 40 in 4.3 seconds at Miami’s pro day. However, he’s extremely raw as a cornerback, having played only one season at the position at […]

Packers Re-Sign Brandon Chillar

With 18 players who have expiring contracts and more than $15 million in salary cap room, the Green Bay Packers finally got off their asses and re-signed someone to a long-term deal. That someone is linebacker Brandon Chillar, who received a four-year, $21 million extension today. Chillar will see $7 million in guaranteed money. Although […]

Packers Tried to Bring In Aaron Stecker

I have it from a reliable source that the Green Bay Packers tried to bring in former Ashwaubenon star Aaron Stecker for a tryout today. Unfortunately, the Packers didn’t get a chance to take a look at the former Tampa Bay and New Orleans running back/kick returner, as he had already signed with the Atlanta […]

Packers Inexplicably Cut Aaron Rouse

I guess this is fighting fire with fire. If your team is dangerously thin at safety, what do you do? Cut one of your remaining safeties and sign one who has never played in your system, that’s what. At least if you’re Green Bay Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson. Look, I have been a Ted […]
