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.
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 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 […]
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.
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 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 […]
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, […]
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 […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
