Training Camp Observations 8-16, Full Pads

Randall Cobb

The Green Bay Packers may have a quandary at tight end, where six guys are legitimate players. That, and the team experiments with Randall Cobb, Desmond Bishop’s father makes an appearance and injuries are affecting several players.

Which Packers Will Show Up Out Of Shape?

Howard Green

An offseason with no one to watch over them is about to conclude. You can bet your ass some members of the Green Bay Packers will show up to training camp out of shape. Here are the odds-on favorites.

Jermichael Finley Has A Lot Of Reasons To Be Motivated

Jermichael Finley

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is motivated by: A. Another Packers Super Bowl run B. The fact the Packers keep adding tight ends to the roster C. Money D. All of the above I think we all know the answer to the question is D.

Veteran Packers Who Should Be Worried

James Jones

The NFL Draft changes the face of every team’s roster and the Green Bay Packers are no exception, even though they’re the reigning Super Bowl champs. Several veterans will go into training camp to fight for a roster spot, while others will simply be let go during free agency. Here’s a look at which players […]

Preparing For Finley’s Departure? Pack May Add Another Tight End

Jermichael Finley

We all kind of scratched our collective heads when the Green Bay Packers drafted tight end Andrew Quarless in last year’s draft. The team seemed stocked at the position at the time, with Jermichael Finley, Donald Lee and Spencer Havner. The Packers ended up cutting Havner, Lee didn’t perform and Finley got hurt, so it […]

Chillar, Havner Could Miss Extended Time, Lee On The Outs

Brandon Chillar

Not that the news is going to change the season, but the Green Bay Packers are likely to be without linebacker Brandon Chillar and tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner for a while. Chillar aggravated the shoulder injury he suffered earlier in the year on kickoff coverage in the first half of the Packers’ loss to Atlanta. […]

Havner Could Be Back With Packers Soon

The Green Bay Packers worked out tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner on Tuesday and will reportedly sign him soon, according to Scout.com. Havner took a physical for the Packers last week. The continued interest signals that the Packers very likely will re-sign Havner, perhaps as soon as Monday, when the team gathers for its first practice […]

Rodgers Good To Go, Matthews Game-Time Decision

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went through a full practice Friday and has been cleared to start against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Officially, he’s listed as probable on the injury report. “I thought Aaron Rodgers looked fine today at practice,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “From my perspective, I would say he’s ready to […]

Rodgers Cleared, Returns To Practice

Rest easy, Green Bay Packers nation. There’s a good chance quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play against Miami on Sunday. Rodgers, who suffered a concussion against Washington, has been cleared by doctors and returned to practice on a limited basis, Thursday. The quarterback had to be cleared both in house and by an outside specialist. Unless […]

Packers’ Stars May Play Sunday

The Green Bay Packers will be without tight end Jermichael Finley on Sunday, but it looks like their two biggest injured stars have a shot at playing. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a concussion on the final play of the game after a helmet-to-helmet hit, will miss some practice time this week, but hasn’t been […]

Observations From Packers 59-24 Victory Over Colts

Peyton Manning

The Green Bay Packers offense is potent, we knew that, but in their longest outing of the preseason against last year’s AFC champs, they put any doubts to rest. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who I have a hard time believing isn’t on his way to becoming the best player in the NFL, cut up the Colts […]

Havner Back At Linebacker

Spencer Havner was a linebacker in college and spent his first couple years in the NFL at the same position before switching to tight end prior to last season. Havner looked like he had found a home at tight end — entering training camp No. 2 on the depth chart — and had carved out […]

A Look At The Packers Depth Chart

The Green Bay Packers have released their first depth chart, which gives us a good idea of who is and who isn’t performing well. It also sheds some light on who is playing where. On the offensive side of the ball there aren’t any big surprises. Most notable is that Donald Lee has regained the […]

Training Camp Observations, Aug 5, Full Pads

Atari Bigby and Morgan Burnett

Here’s a quick look at Green Bay Packers training camp from Aug. 5. Breno Giacomini running with the No. 2 offense Maybe this is due in part to T.J. Lang being a little banged up, but Breno Giacomini has been lining up with the second-string offense at right tackle and even lined up with first […]

Training Camp Observations, August 3, Evening, Full Pads

The weather man was wrong. It’s sunny and 85 degrees about an hour before practice. Quick observations: – There is a lot of talk here in Green Bay on the Brett Favre retirement. My thoughts — he stays retired until September 9th when, while mowing the lawn, he decides to drive the lawnmower to the […]

Packers Sign Andrew Quarless

The Green Bay Packers have locked up fifth-rounder Andrew Quarless, a talented, but troubled tight end from Penn State. Quarless received an $183,000 signing bonus, but salary and length of the deal have not been reported. He was the Packers first of two fifth-round picks (No. 154) and joins guard Marshall Newhouse (fifth), running back […]

Packers Depth Chart: That’s Interesting, Man

The Sporting News released their pre-training camp preview for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday and our initial reaction was, to borrow a line from The Dude, that’s interesting, man. The depth chart wasn’t interesting so much for the starting lineups, but more surprising on some of the second-string players. First, it’s important to point […]

Who’s Out At Tight End?

We won’t know the answer to this question until training camp is complete, but the Green Bay Packers have a logjam at tight end after drafting Andrew Quarless in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. Joining Quarless is starter Jermichael Finley, Spencer Havner and Donald Lee, who opened 2009 as the starter. Unless the […]

Packers Add Tight End, Guard In The Fifth Round

The Green Bay Packers defied logic again in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. Packers’ GM Ted Thompson chose Penn State tight end Andrew Quarless with the team’s first fifth-round pick (No. 154), even though the team is solid, one-though-three, on the tight end depth chart with Jermichael Finley, Donald Lee and Spencer Havner.
