Raiders Raid Packers Practice Squad

Brandian Ross

The Oakland Raiders signed Brandian Ross from the Green Bay Packers practice squad. Could this clear the way for the return of Tori Gurley?

Packers Interested In Dave Tollefson, Add Daniel Muir

Dave Tollefson

The Green Bay Packers have expressed interest in New York Giants defensive end Dave Tollefson, who’s expected for a visit next week. The team also signed defensive tackle Daniel Muir and lost cornerback Pat Lee.

Packers vs. Chiefs: First Impressions

Vic So

The Green Bay Packers beat the Kansas City Chiefs 20-19 to close out the preseason. Here are our first impressions, including which bubble players solidified a roster spot, who disappointed and which position is going to be overloaded.

Training Camp Observations 8-29, Full Pads

Marshall Newhouse

The Green Bay Packers held their final open training camp practice in full pads Monday. We got a long look at Matt Flynn, the offensive line looked better and Morgan Burnett and Davon House were making plays.

Training Camp Observations 8-16, Full Pads

Randall Cobb

The Green Bay Packers may have a quandary at tight end, where six guys are legitimate players. That, and the team experiments with Randall Cobb, Desmond Bishop’s father makes an appearance and injuries are affecting several players.

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 […]

Whatever Happened To Brandon Underwood?

Brandon Underwood

Remember Brandon Underwood? During the summer, the Green Bay Packers were high on Underwood. Coach Mike McCarthy said he was the player who made the biggest second-year jump. Underwood came into training camp as the Packers nickel cornerback. Underwood played well during practice, but that didn’t carry over to the preseason games. Then he got […]

Sam Shields Is Packers Kick Returner… For Now

One of the more interesting developments to come out of the Green Bay Packers mauling of the Dallas Cowboys was cornerback Sam Shields taking over as the Packers kick returner. The team has been looking for a reliable kick returner all season. Receiver Jordy Nelson, who was given first crack at the job, had some […]

McCarthy On Al Harris’ Release

Veteran cornerback Al Harris can still play, but he didn’t fit into the Green Bay Packers plans. That was the message from coach Mike McCarthy after the Packers released Harris, on Monday. “We made a decision based on the overall depth and future of our roster. A number of different variables went into that decision,” […]

Will Blackmon Is Off The Market

Will Blackmon

After the Green Bay Packers gave Aaron Stecker a tryout two weeks ago, we speculated that the team might be interested in bringing return man/safety Will Blackmon back. They won’t get that opportunity. Blackmon, who was among the Packers’ final roster cuts, was signed by the New York Giants. Blackmon tore his ACL early in […]

Packers Looking At Options On Kick Returns; Where’s Will Blackmon?

The Green Bay Packers aren’t happy with their kick returners. Jordy Nelson is averaging a team-high 23.7 yards per return, but fumbled twice in the Packers’ victory over the Detroit Lions. He was temporarily replaced by Pat Lee against the Washington Redskins, but Lee managed only 16.5 yards on two returns. This week, the Packers […]

Rodgers, Matthews, Pickett Held Out, Shields Returns

As expected, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (concussion), linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) and defensive end Ryan Pickett (ankle) didn’t practice on Wednesday. Rodgers has a shot at playing against Miami this weekend if he passes a battery of tests to see if he’s fully recovered from the concussion he suffered against Washington. Matthews also […]

Nick Collins “Not Optimistic” About Knee

Add safety Nick Collins to the Green Bay Packers growing list of injury concerns. Collins missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee strain and said he’s not optimistic about playing against the Redskins on Sunday, according to Kareem Copeland. “I’m doing the best I can to get ready for Sunday,” Collins said. “Just trying to strengthen […]

Packers Not Exactly Dominant In Season-Opening Win

Kevin Kolb

Maybe it’s time to table the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl talk for a bit. The defense, led by linebacker Clay Matthews, was the biggest reason the Packers were able to escape Philadelphia with a 27-20 win over the Eagles. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense wasn’t close to firing on all cylinders, but […]

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 […]

Shields Playing Nickel, Lee In Danger Of Getting Cut

Undrafted free agent cornerback Sam Shields looks like he’s just about locked up a roster spot on the Green Bay Packers. Pat Lee, a former second-round pick, looks like he’s in danger of getting cut. Shields served as the Packers nickel cornerback during Sunday’s practice. While some sources have suggested he could soon be taking […]

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 […]

No Need To Panic About Defense Yet

Matt Hasselbeck

For the second week in a row, the Green Bay Packers offense looked unstoppable, while their defense looked suspect — this time in a 27-24 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Just as they did against Cleveland a week earlier, the Packers employed a vanilla version of their defense. Unlike last year, when the team was […]

Al Harris Could Return Next Week

Brad Biggs is reporting that Green Bay Packers cornerback Al Harris could begin practicing next week. Harris has been on the PUP list since the beginning of training camp, while he continues to rehabilitate a torn ACL. According to a league source, Harris could be cleared to return to practice as soon as Monday. He’d […]

Does Sam Shields Have A Shot With The Packers?

Sam Shields

A lot of people like undrafted rookie free agent cornerback Sam Shields. He’s not only received a lot of coverage in the media, but both coaches and players have gone out of their way to praise his playmaking ability and his commitment to learning the game. Shields has blazing speed and as they say, you […]
