Green Bay Packers All-Time Best Free Agent Signings

Reggie White

Since the Green Bay Packers won’t be signing anyone of note during this free agency period, we decided to look at their all-time best free agent signings to cheer you up.

Packers Ax Brandon Chillar

Brandon Chillar

The Green Bay Packers have gone from a position of strength to a position that’s potentially weak in a matter of two days. The team’s inside linebacker depth has been diluted even further with the release of Brandon Chillar.

Barnett May Renegotiate Deal

Nick Barnett

Nick Barnett wants to finish his career with the Green Bay Packers. He made that abundantly clear Thursday, saying he’s willing to work with the organization to make it happen. The Packers may have other ideas, though.

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.

Packers Have To Make A Decision On Hawk Soon

A.J. Hawk

The Green Bay Packers have to make a decision on linebacker A.J. Hawk at some point this offseason.

Hawk is guaranteed $10 million for the 2011 season under his current contract. That’s an amount the Packers have no intention of paying.

Where Would The Packers Be Without A.J. Hawk?

A.J. Hawk

I’ll be honest. I’ve never been a big fan of Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk. He’s simply never lived up to his status as the fifth-overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. No All Pros, no Pro Bowls, never developed into a big-time playmaker. After he didn’t play a snap in the Packers season-opening […]

Packers Extend Bishop

Desmond Bishop

The Green Bay Packers have signed inside linebacker Desmond Bishop to a contract extension. The deal is reportedly for $19 million over four years. Bishop took over the starting job at inside linebacker after Nick Barnett’s season ended after week four, getting the first extensive action of his Packers’ career. He then proceeded to make […]

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 […]

Chillar, Havner The Latest Packers To Injured Reserve

Brandon Chillar

The Green Bay Packers now have 13 players on injured reserve after the team placed linebacker Brandon Chillar and tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner there, Tuesday. Both players aggravated injuries — Chillar a shoulder and Havner a hamstring — in the Packers’ loss to Atlanta. Chillar recorded 16 tackles, a sack and an interception in eight […]

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. […]

Young And Unproven Players Are Now Part Of Packers’ Success

As the Green Bay Packers’ injuries began to pile up, quite a few people thought the wheels were about to fall off. The Packers currently have 10 players on injured reserve, five of which are starters, eight of which play defense. While Ryan Grant and the Packers lack of a certifiable running game was the […]

Bishop Making The Packers Coaching Staff Look Like Idiots

I’ve always questioned the Green Bay Packers coaching staff and their reluctance to give young players a shot when those players were behind veterans on the depth chart. Mike McCarthy and company always have some reason to stick with the veteran over the young guy, even when the young guy has a similar talent level. […]

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, […]

Matthews, Chillar And Tauscher Return, Neal Out

The Green Bay Packers got some good news on the injury front, Wednesday, which is a refreshing change of pace for the team. The most important development is linebacker Clay Matthews returned to practice after missing last Sunday’s game with Miami. Matthews only took part in the jog through portion of practice, but barring a […]

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 […]

Welcome Back Spencer Havner…

That’s what I might eventually say if I were Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson. Tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner was placed on the waived/injured list today by the Detroit Lions. Havner was released by the Packers during their final preseason roster cuts. Havner could provide valuable depth for the Packers, who are battling injuries […]

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 […]

Rodgers, Matthews, Pickett Held Out, Shields Returns

As expected, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (concussion), linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) and defensive end Ryan Pickett (ankle) didn’t practice on Wednesday. Rodgers has a shot at playing against Miami this weekend if he passes a battery of tests to see if he’s fully recovered from the concussion he suffered against Washington. Matthews also […]

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 […]

Injury Replacements: Who To Be Worried About

If you haven’t heard that the Green Bay Packers have a shitload of injuries, well… then get the hell out of here. The Packers will be down four week one starters against the Redskins this week — five, if you count linebacker Brandon Chillar and six, if you count cornerback Sam Shields. Those players are […]
