Paper Champions: Eagles Already Crowning Themselves

Nnamdi Asomugha

The Philadelphia Eagles have made some great moves this offseason. So, of course we already know they’re going to win the Super Bowl this season or at least that’s what they’d have us believe. May as well not even play the season.

Eagles Sign Jenkins, Gun For Packers

Cullen Jenkins

The Green Bay Packers let defensive end Cullen Jenkins sign with the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency. For Philadelphia, it’s one in a series of moves designed to stop Aaron Rodgers & Co.

Clusterfuck Update 7/26: Free Agent Deals And McNabb To Vikings

Donovan McNabb

Teams can’t officially sign free agents until Friday, but that didn’t stop several players from agreeing to contracts. That, plus the Minnesota Vikings pursuit of Donovan McNabb and Nnamdi Asomugha’s first suitor.

Packers Probably Won’t Have To Deal With Asomugha

Nnamdi Asomugha

The Detroit Lions seem like an obvious suitor for free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, but are probably too cheap to pay him, which means the Lions secondary should resemble a sieve once again.

20 Questions With Sam Farmer

Sam Farmer

We’re dropping some real football knowledge this morning, courtesy of the Los Angeles Times’ NFL writer, Sam Farmer. Farmer is seriously keyed in and he doesn’t make you want to stab yourself in the eyes when you read his work, like, say, a certain Sports Illustrated writer. In addition to being all over the lockout, […]

Woodson, Williams On Cornerback Power Rankings List

Tramon Williams

Both of the Green Bay Packers starting cornerbacks, Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, made ESPN’s cornerback power rankings list. Woodson finished third and Williams finished seventh. Not surprisingly, the top two in the rankings were the New York Jets’ Darrelle Revis and the Oakland Raiders’ Nnamdi Asomugha, who received all the first and second place votes.

Apparently Everyone Needs To Be Told: Asomugha Is A Long Shot

Nnamdi Asomugha

Personally, I thought we made it pretty clear. Soon-to-be-former Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha isn’t likely to sign with the Green Bay Packers, even though he’s expressed an interest in rejoining former teammate Charles Woodson.

Sure, it’s a wonderful thought, pairing Asomugha with Tramon Williams and moving Woodson to free safety. Asomugha, Williams, Woodson and Nick Collins — three All Pros and one in the making.

Asomugha Reportedly Wants To Come To Green Bay

Nnamdi Asomugha

We didn’t pay much attention to the fact Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha became a free agent after his contract voided, earlier this week. The Green Bay Packers already have two Pro Bowl-caliber cornerbacks in Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams. They don’t really need another. However, there are reports Asomugha is interested in playing for […]

Packers Reward Woodson With Two-Year Extension

The Green Bay Packers have locked up cornerback Charles Woodson for an additional two years. Woodson, the reigning NFL defensive player of the year, has three years remaining on his current deal. He will be 39 if he plays out the full contract, which seems unlikely. The deal is worth $55 million over the next […]

Packers Reportedly Discussing New Contract With Woodson

This comes as a bit of a surprise, but the Green Bay Packers and cornerback Charles Woodson are reportedly discussing a new contract. I say it’s a bit of a surprise because, although Woodson is coming off perhaps his finest season, he’ll be 34 this year and still has three years left on his current […]

Top-Flight Cornerbacks Available, Packers Unlikely To Act

Dunta Robinson

Make no mistake about it, the Green Bay Packers are in the cornerback market. Al Harris is rehabilitating a major knee injury and behind Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams, who ended the season as the starters, the Packers are thin. There has been speculation the Packers might be interested in acquiring San Diego’s Antonio Cromartie, […]
