Charlie Peprah

The Green Bay Packers are still dealing with injuries suffered by players during the 2011 season. Here’s who’s ailing, what’s wrong with them and when they’ll be back.

Aaron Rodgers Voted NFL’s Best By Peers

Aaron Rodgers

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the No. 1 player in the NFL Network’s Top 100. In all, six Packers made the list, which is voted on by NFL players.

Packers Have Seven Pro Bowlers

The Green Bay Packers have seven Pro Bowlers on the NFC roster. Here’s who made it, what we think of it, who didn’t deserve to go and who may have gotten the snub.

Packers Deal Wrap-Up: Sherrod, Jones, Kuhn

John Kuhn

The Green Bay Packers went on a frenzy of signing players over the weekend. They inked all of their draft picks, receiver James Jones, fullback John Kuhn, receiver Brett Swain and tight end Spencer Havner. Here are the details and how the moves impact the team.

Packers Have Salary Cap Problems

Mark Tauscher

Once the new collective bargaining agreement is finished, the salary cap will return to the NFL and 2011’s cap will be lower than 2009’s. The cap is projected to be as high as $121 million, but could be as low as $117 million. The 2009 cap was $122 million. If the 2011 cap is $120 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Packers Interested In Adding Another Fullback

Collin Mooney

If there’s one thing we know about Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson, it’s that he loves his fullbacks. Even though the Packers use more four- and five-wide receiver sets than anyone in the NFL, a time the fullback isn’t typically on the field, the Packers have carried three fullbacks on their roster since they drafted Quinn Johnson in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Packers Throw Out First Pitch, Brewers Immediately Sign Them

Packers first pitch

Twelve members of the world champion Green Bay Packers were on hand for the Milwaukee Brewers home opener Monday afternoon to throw out the first pitch… er, pitches. I’m only kidding about the Brewers signing anyone, but hell, none of the Packers have anything to do during the damn lockout and the Brewers supposedly vaunted […]

Kuhn Expects To Be Back With Packers

John Kuhn

John Kuhn isn’t doing himself any favors. Over the weekend, the pending free agent said he expects to return to the Green Bay Packers next season. Either Kuhn doesn’t expect they’ll be much of a market for his services or he doesn’t want to play anywhere else, which severely diminishes his chance of signing a big-money contract in free agency.

Packers Must Know Something Top Secret About Free Agency

Daryn Colledge

The Green Bay Packers are made some strange moves on Wednesday, when they tendered free-agents-to-be guard Daryn Colledge, kicker Mason Crosby and fullback John Kuhn.

Colledge and Crosby received second-round tenders and Kuhn received the lowest tender.

Here’s why all none of this makes any sense.

Market, Packers Restocked Offense May Mean Kuhn Doesn’t Return

John Kuhn

The Green Bay Packers appear to be willing to let fullback John Kuhn test the market in free agency.

Kuhn’s agent says the Packers haven’t been in touch about a new contract and Kuhn could be an attractive option to a team looking for a lead blocker and power runner.

Packers Control The World For A Minute

The Green Bay Packers got to control the world for a minute.

At least that was Charles Woodson’s assessment of what it meant to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange, which Woodson, teammates John Kuhn, Ryan Grant and Packers president Mark Murphy did, yesterday.

Jackson Is As Good As Gone

Brandon Jackson

I know. It’s not the offseason yet, but some people are getting an early jump on looking at the Green Bay Packers free agents to be. One guy who’s in an even more dubious position than receiver James Jones, whose chances of returning to the Packers seem about 50/50, is running back Brandon Jackson. When […]

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 […]

Apparently James Starks Is Not The Answer

James Starks

Running back James Starks burst onto the scene three weeks ago when the Green Bay Packers hosted the San Francisco 49ers, running for 73 yards on 18 carries and seemingly reviving the team’s stagnant running game. Afterward, coach Mike McCarthy praised Starks’ ability to gain extra yards after contact. On Sunday, Starks wasn’t even active […]

Starks’ Future Looks Bright

James Starks

Not that it’s time to anoint rookie running back James Starks the second coming, but the sixth-round pick looks like he might have a bright future with the Green Bay Packers. Starks ran for 73 yards on 18 carries in the Packers’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers, Sunday. Meanwhile, starting halfback Brandon Jackson got […]

Everyone Upset Packers Didn’t Acquire Lynch, But Would It Matter?

Lost in the malaise surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ injury report last week was this nugget — pretty much everyone in the organization is pissed general manager Ted Thompson failed to acquire running back Marshawn Lynch from the Buffalo Bills. Lynch was traded to the Seattle Seahawks for a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a […]

Marshawn Lynch Will Not Be Joining The Packers

The Seattle Seahawks completed a deal to acquire Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch for a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a conditional pick in 2012, today. The Packers seemed to be the obvious destination for Lynch since Ryan Grant went down with a season-ending injury in week one and much speculation and rumor followed, […]
