Clusterfuck Update 3/17: Options At Center Diminish, 49ers In On Peyton

Chris Myers

Free agency has slowed down, but there have still been plenty of developments. The Green Bay Packers even factor into some of them. Here’s a breakdown of the important moves over the past two days.

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 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 […]

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 […]

Bigby Is Gone Again

Atari Bigby

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby is nothing if not injury-prone. Bigby strained a groin in Sunday’s victory over the New York Giants and has already been ruled out for Sunday’s contest with the Chicago Bears. Obviously Bigby can’t be counted on, so why should anyone care about a guy who’s only been able to […]

Bigby Could Return This Week

Atari Bigby

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby, who’s spent more time standing around on the sideline this season than he has on the field, could return from his latest injury as early as this week. Bigby took part in a limited portion of practice on Thursday and passed a running test before practice, which is the […]

And Here Comes Atari Bigby’s Next Injury Problem

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby has aggravated the hamstring injury that landed him on the physically unable to perform list, which perfectly follows his pattern. By most accounts, Bigby is a decent safety, when he can stay on the field. Unfortunately, he can’t stay on the field very often. In addition to missing the […]

Peprah, Bigby Will Split Snaps

Charlie Peprah will remain the Green Bay Packers starting strong safety, but it appears it’s only a title. Despite playing some outstanding football of late, that apparently isn’t enough to keep Atari Bigby, who saw his first action of the season against the Dallas Cowboys, off the field. Nope. The Packers have come up with […]

Peprah Is The Packers Starting Strong Safety

Green Bay Packers strong safety Atari Bigby saw his first action of the season in the Packers’ last game, but he didn’t return to the starting lineup after his return from the physically unable to perform list. Charlie Peprah, initially an injury replacement for rookie Morgan Burnett, remained in the role. It looks like Peprah […]

Packers Activate James Starks

James Starks

In a somewhat surprising move, the Green Bay Packers have activated running back James Starks from the physically unable to perform list. Starks, who the Packers chose in the sixth round of this year’s draft, was in the same boat as Atari Bigby and Al Harris. The Packers had to activate him, cut him or […]

Packers Activate Bigby

The Green Bay Packers have activated safety Atari Bigby from the physically unable to perform list. Cornerback Al Harris and running back James Starks were not activated. The team has until Tuesday to either activate them, place them on injured reserve or cut them. The Packers had an open roster spot, so they did not […]

Packers Cut Montgomery; Bigby Could Be Back Soon

Mike Montgomery

The Green Bay Packers have ended the illustrious Mike Montgomery era, releasing the defensive end Tuesday. Montgomery played in two games this season for the Packers, after being signed on October, 15. He recorded no tackles. A former sixth-round pick by the Packers, Montgomery simply doesn’t fit the Packers 3-4 system and he never has. […]

Bigby May Play This Weekend

Safety Atari Bigby may be activated off the physically unable to perform list for the Green Bay Packers game with the New York Jets this weekend. Coach Mike McCarthy says he hasn’t ruled Bigby out, but he has ruled out cornerback Al Harris, who is in the same position as the safety. “We’ll finalize that […]

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 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 […]

Packers Could Pursue Michael Lewis

This is just speculation, but the fact that the Green Bay Packers lost starting strong safety Morgan Burnett to a season-ending ACL tear and the San Francisco 49ers released Micheal Lewis, the team’s opening-day starter at strong safety, seems like a nice coincidence. Lewis had a falling out with coach Mike Singletary last week and […]
