Greg Jennings Wants To Become An Actor

Greg Jennings

Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings seems to have a budding acting career. Jennings landed a bit role on the CBS drama Criminal Minds last year, but recently got something more meaty to sink his teeth into — a featured role on USA’s Royal Pains.

Jennings Uses Fitzgerald For Motivation

Greg Jennings

Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings is one of the best in the game, but he’s getting his motivation from someone who’s a little better — Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Fitzgerald is a five-time Pro Bowler and one of the hardest workers in the NFL. Jennings, who has four fewer Pro Bowl selections, began working out with Fitzgerald in Arizona this week, under former NFL receivers coach Jerry Sullivan.

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 […]

Seven Green Bay Packers Make Top 100 List

Aaron Rodgers

Seven Green Bay Packers made CBSSports.com senior writer Pete Prisco’s top 100 NFL players of 2011 list. The top-ranked Packer should come as no surprise. QB Aaron Rodgers came in at No. 6 overall — behind Texans wideout Andre Johnson, Raiders cornerback Nmandi Asomugha, Cowboys linebacker DeMarcus Ware and (puke) quarterbacks Tom Brady and Peyton […]

Greg Jennings’ Response To ‘Put The Team On Your Back’ Video

Back in April of last year, some dude became a YouTube sensation when he uploaded a video of a particular Madden play where he, as Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings, went 99 yards on a broken leg for a touchdown.

The commentary is pretty awesome, but completely NSFW.

Here’s One Reason To Be Optimistic About Sunday

Aaron Rodgers

We haven’t talked a lot about the Pittsburgh Steelers, particularly in a negative light. That’s because the Pittsburgh Steelers scare me. More than the Philadelphia Eagles, more than the Atlanta Falcons and certainly more than the Chicago Bears. Coming into the playoffs, I thought there were two teams who could give the Green Bay Packers […]

Five Packers Make Pro Bowl; Rodgers Not One Of Them

Greg Jennings

Five members of the Green Bay Packers made the Pro Bowl. Despite appearing in the NFL’s Pro Bowl ad, quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not one of them. The Packers who will make the trip to Hawaii are receiver Greg Jennings, tackle Chad Clifton, linebacker Clay Matthews, cornerback Charles Woodson and safety Nick Collins. Collins, Woodson […]

Jennings Is NFC Player Of The Week

In what seems to be pretty much a weekly occurrence, a member of the Green Bay Packers will be handed an NFC Player of the Week award. This time, receiver Greg Jennings will get the offensive award. Jennings had seven catches for 152 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers rout of the Minnesota Vikings, […]

Jennings’ Increased Production Directly Related To Finley’s Demise

Green Bay Packers receiver Greg Jennings is playing some outstanding football of late. In the last five games, Jennings has 32 receptions for 520 yards and six touchdowns. Those are pretty nice numbers, especially when compared to his first five games — 14 receptions for 183 yards and three touchdowns. Additionally, Jennings’ targets have increased […]

Stick A Fork In The Minnesota Vikings

Greg Jennings

I think we can all agree, thanks to the Green Bay Packers, we can stick a fork in the Minnesota Vikings. They’re dead. Their season is officially over after the Packers thoroughly dominated them and old man Brett Favre in a 31-3 victory at the Metrodome. None of us thought it would be as easy […]

Packers Passing Attack Faces Tough Test Against Jets

The New York Jets will have their best defender, cornerback Darrelle Revis, back at full strength for their match-up with the Green Bay Packers, this Sunday — something that isn’t good news for the team’s passing attack. The Jets are coming off a bye and Revis says he’s 100 percent for the first time since […]

The Brett Favre Curse Is Broken

Brett Favre

The Green Bay Packers finally pulled out a close game and in doing so, ended the curse of Brett Favre, beating the Minnesota Vikings 28-24. The Packers sit in a tie with the Chicago Bears atop the NFC North with the Chicago Bears at 4-3. Although the Packers defense gave up plenty of yards — […]

Packers Lackluster In Loss To Redskins, Injuries Continue To Mount

Donald Lee

The Green Bay Packers did everything they could to keep the Washington Redskins in the football game for four quarters. In the end, the Redskins finally took advantage to win 16-13 on a Graham Gano 33-yard field goal in overtime. After a strong first half, the Packers offense failed to do anything of note in […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Lions

Steffen: After what feels like decades of ineptitude (oh wait, it has been decades) the Detroit Lions’ offseason roster moves had many prognosticators predicting marked improvement over last season’s two-win season. Indeed the Lions are an improved team. Led by rookie dynamo Jahvid Best, the offense has more firepower and fellow rookie defensive tackle/tank Ndamukong […]

Predictions: Packers vs. Bills

Steffen: The Vegas oddsmakers have the Green Bay Packers favored by how much again? 13.5 points?  There are plenty of folks out there who’d tell you that isn’t nearly enough. Don’t count me among them. Like last week, this game will be much closer than it needs to be. Obviously, the biggest question mark for […]

Packers Offense Could Join A Select Few

The Green Bay Packers offense looks like a juggernaut going into the 2010 season. The possibilities of this season got me thinking about some of the greatest individual seasons by teammates in NFL history. The Packers had two 1,000-yard receivers, a 1,000-yard rusher and a 4,000-yard passer in 2009. Those numbers came courtesy of Greg […]

Nelson, Williams The Packers Primary Returners

The Green Bay Packers will go into their week one game with the Philadelphia Eagles with receiver Jordy Nelson and cornerback Tramon Williams as their primary return men after cutting safety Will Blackmon, Saturday. Nelson will return kicks and Williams will return punts. Running back Brandon Jackson will also be in the mix as a […]

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 […]

Jordy Nelson’s Time Is Now

Jordy Nelson hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since the Green Bay Packers made him their first selection (second round) in the 2008 draft. He’s shown flashes of potential. He’s shown his blazing speed. He hasn’t developed into a top-of-the-line NFL receiver. That shouldn’t necessarily come as a surprise, considering Nelson is sitting behind […]

Greg Jennings: Actor

Greg Jennings

Apparently, Green Bay Packers’ receiver Greg Jennings can do more than catch footballs and run fast. Or, at least, we’ll see… Jennings will make his acting debut Wednesday on the CBS drama Criminal Minds, where he plays a lab technician. Jennings’ appearance is brief – only one scene – but he does have a few […]
