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 […]

A.J. Hawk, Two Others Get The Ax

A.J. Hawk

The Green Bay Packers released linebacker A.J. Hawk, safety Derrick Martin and tight end Donald Lee, Wednesday.

Hawk’s release doesn’t come as a big surprise, considering the Packers had no intention of paying his $10 million salary, which would have been guaranteed on the first day of the league year.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Packers Offensive Line Has Become A Strength

No one would have considered the Green Bay Packers offensive line a strength last season, particularly in the first half. Part of the reason was the ineffectiveness of right tackle Allen Barbre, who was eventually replaced by Mark Tauscher. Another factor was injuries. Chad Clifton missed several games, forcing left guard Daryn Colledge and later […]

Packers’ Road To 53

The Green Bay Packers had to release 22 players today to get to the 53-man roster limit. Perhaps the biggest surprise among those players is safety and return man Will Blackmon. Blackmon has been injured for much of training camp and that certainly didn’t help his chances of making the roster, but he was considered […]

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 […]

The End Of Jarrett Bush?

We’ve been waiting for it for three years, but the end of cornerback Jarrett Bush as a member of the Green Bay Packers appears to be getting closer. As we’ve documented many times, Bush is a liability on defense. What’s kept him on the team thus far is his play on special teams. A few […]

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 […]

How The Packers Beat The Cardinals

Look for a lot of this

Surely, not much can be taken from the Green Bay Packers’ 33-7 drubbing of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Cardinals quarterback Kurt Warner played only one quarter and threw only six passes and the Cardinals employed a vanilla game plan. But hold the phone for a minute. The Packers not only demonstrated that they can […]
