Underwood’s Chances Of Making Roster Just Got Slimmer

Brandon Underwood

Safety Brandon Underwood has a sprained knee that’s expected to sideline him for several weeks. If that’s correct, his chances of making the Green Bay Packers final roster aren’t looking good.

Packers Free Agents: Who Will Return

Mason Crosby

Now that we know who the Green Bay Packers unrestricted free agents will be, we can tell you who’s likely to be back and who isn’t. For several players, the writing is on the wall — they’ve played their last game with the Packers. Here’s a look at who’s likely coming back and who’s likely […]

Lockout Could Be Over Soon: The Details

Roger Goodell

A new collective bargaining agreement could be coming soon, which means the godforsaken lockout, court cases and he said/she said bullshit that has been this NFL offseason might finally be over. Commissioner Roger Goodell presented the details of the proposed labor agreement to the owners on Tuesday. Although no vote was taken, the details make […]

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.

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.

Jenkins Should Be Next In Line For A New Contract

Cullen Jenkins

With Desmond Bishop receiving a contact extension, defensive end Cullen Jenkins should be the top priority for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have several key players who are scheduled to be free agents under the current system, which is expected to be extended at some point. In addition to Jenkins, they include fullbacks John […]

Packers Getting Healthy

This is not a misnomer. It is not misdirection. It’s not the old switcheroo. The Green Bay Packers are actually getting healthy, and just in time for the Minnesota Vikings, who come to town with their old, washed-up, dick-texting quarterback this weekend. Linebackers Clay Matthews and Brandon Chillar are expected to return to the lineup, […]

Harris And Bigby Will Return, May Play This Week

The Green Bay Packers will get cornerback Al Harris, safety Atari Bigby and running back James Starks back this week. All three players have been on the physically unable to perform list since the beginning of the season and this week is the first they are eligible to return to practice. Coach Mike McCarthy said […]

Packers Bring Back Anthony Smith

The Green Bay Packers traded a conditional seventh-round pick to the Jacksonville Jaguars for safety Anthony Smith, on Sunday. This will be Smith’s second tour with the Packers. The team signed him as a free agent prior to last season, but he was among the final roster cuts. Smith has started three games for Jacksonville […]

Do the Packers Miss Anthony Smith?

Anthony Smith

That’s the word, at least according to one report. The Packers cut safety Anthony Smith during their final roster cutdown, instead deciding to keep Jarret Bush and Aaron Rouse. The team also traded for Derrick Martin. Rouse has since been cut. Smith was pushing Atari Bigby for playing time during training camp and was easily […]

Atari Bigby Has Competition, A.J. Hawk’s Role Diminishing

In what looks to be the one true battle remaining in training camp, the Green Bay Packers seem undecided on who to start at safety opposite Nick Collins. Atari Bigby, who is coming off major offseason ankle surgery, was projected to be that guy. However, free agent signee Anthony Smith has outplayed Bigby in almost […]

Welcome Back, Nick Collins

Well, well, well. Guess who decided to show up? Green Bay Packers starting safety, Nick Collins. That’s who. Collins has been staying away from Packers’ offseason activities while he pisses and moans about his contract. However, on Wednesday, Collins showed up at OTAs, where his Packers teammates have been for several weeks now. Collins did […]

Anthony Smith in Hunt for Starting Safety Spot?

Anthony Smith Randy Moss

Anthony Smith, whom the Green Bay Packers picked up as a free agent this offseason, may find himself in the hunt for a starting safety spot when training camp opens. Smith has been lining up with the Packers No. 1 defense during OTAs, which means absolutely nothing other than last year’s starters, Atari Bigby and […]

It’s All Part Of The Plan

Ted Thompson creeps out the Green bay media at least week

The NFL’s annual spending orgy that we call free agency has pretty much come and gone. Predictably, a large contingent of Green Bay Packers fans have been lamenting the fact that, yet again, GM Ted Thompson failed to sign a single average player to a multi-million dollar contract. Coming off an utterly disappointing season, the […]

Free Agency 2009: Week 2 Update

Let’s hope our new safety has learned his lesson. It’s true. After the wild and wacky first weekend of free agency and all the money that was thrown around, I needed a break. Besides that, after the first weekend, there wasn’t a lot of movement. As we chronicled, the Packers lost out on Chris Canty […]
