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 […]

Packers’ Stars May Play Sunday

The Green Bay Packers will be without tight end Jermichael Finley on Sunday, but it looks like their two biggest injured stars have a shot at playing. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a concussion on the final play of the game after a helmet-to-helmet hit, will miss some practice time this week, but hasn’t been […]

Cullen Jenkins Doesn’t Want To Make A Scene; Makes A Scene

Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins is not the kind of guy who makes a scene… unless he wants a new contract. Ah yes, it’s that time of year. Or at least it’s that time of year for Jenkins — the season of discontent. Jenkins is in the final year of his contract and […]

Clifton, Colledge Likely To Start

It looks like the Green Bay Packers will open their game with the Chicago Bears tonight with the same starting offensive line they opened the season with. Both Chad Clifton and Daryn Colledge practiced with the No. 1 unit on Saturday and will start barring a last-minute setback. Clifton has been battling a knee injury […]

Johnny Jolly’s Trial To Begin First Day Of Camp

Green Bay Packers’ defensive end Johnny Jolly’s felony drug possession trial has been rescheduled for July 30, the day the Packers open training camp. Jolly’s trial has been pushed back several times now, which was not totally unexpected. In Harris County, Texas, where Jolly will be tried, cases with defendants who are in jail take […]

We Told You So: Johnny Jolly Edition

Hate to say I told you so… Ah, who am I kidding? I enjoy saying I told you so. Pro Football Weekly’s Dan Arkush is reporting the Green Bay Packers are seriously considering releasing Johnny Jolly, who is a restricted free agent and about to go on trial for drug possession in Texas. Claims that […]

Johnny Jolly Is Begging For A Suspension, Or More

No one has ever accused Green Bay Packers’ defensive end Johnny Jolly of being a Rhodes Scholar, but he’s probably a little dumber than we thought. Jolly, who’s trial for possession of 200 grams of codeine was supposed to start today, but got postponed until May 26, received more bail restrictions after prosecutors submitted several […]

Ryan Pickett A Defensive End, B.J. Raji The Nose Tackle

There were a couple of surprises during the first day of the Green Bay Packers’ OTAs open to the public. Ryan Pickett, who’s played defensive tackle his entire career, was lining up at defensive end with the Packers’ starting defense. Last year’s first-round pick B.J. Raji took Pickett’s place at nose tackle. Whether the move […]

Packers Sign Nick Collins, Ryan Pickett

Ryan Pickett

By Green Bay Packers’ standards, the team has been active during free agency. They haven’t signed a player from another team, but they’ve now signed three of their own players after inking safety Nick Collins and nose tackle Ryan Pickett today. There are conflicting reports on Collins’ contract. Per Pete Dougherty, Collins received a four-year […]

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, […]

Nick Collins May Hold Out

Nick Collins

All is quiet on the Nick Collins front and that isn’t good. The Green Bay Packers starting strong safety avoided offseason team activities last year because he was angry the Packers wouldn’t renegotiate his contract. Now, Collins is about to become a restricted free agent and there seems to be no movement on a new […]

Packers Will Franchise Ryan Pickett

The Green Bay Packers will use the franchise tag on nose tackle Ryan Pickett, according to NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora. The move is somewhat of a surprise considering Pickett isn’t an every down player and the Packers chose nose tackle B.J. Raji with their top choice in the 2009 draft, but quality nose tackles are […]

Packers Top Free Agent Priority: Ryan Pickett

Ryan Pickett

Some interesting tidbits have come out about the Green Bay Packers free agent priorities in the past week. Although he’s clearly their top player without a contract for the 2010 season, safety Nick Collins is not at the top of the Packers’ list of players to resign. The main reason is Collins will be a […]

Ranking The Green Bay Packers’ Free Agents

Nick Collins

The Green Bay Packers have 18 players in their contract year after Monday’s resigning of linebacker Brandon Chillar. However, the situation isn’t as dire as it may look. The collective bargaining agreement – the agreement between the owners and player’s association that dictates the rules of the salary cap, free agency, guaranteed spending, rookie salaries, […]

Oh Yeah, Packers Are Playing The Bears This Week

In case you forgot, the Green Bay Packers are playing the Chicago Bears this week. That had kind of slipped my mind because… what’s that old song? Oh yeah, it’s this one. The Bears (5-7) are bad this season for a lot of reasons. Most noted is the fact quarterback Jay Culter leads the league […]

Five Reasons the Packers Will Beat the Vikings

Nick Barnett is among them

The Green Bay Packers are three-point favorites going into their contest with the Minnesota Vikings this weekend. Since the Packers are playing in Lambeau Field, that line simply means that the oddsmakers feel these two teams are evenly matched. Still, this season’s history says the Vikings are the better team. The Vikings are 6-1 to […]

Packers Sense of Urgency Needs Come From Within

It was refreshing to hear a member of the Green Bay Packers address the elephant in the room, yesterday. “Nobody’s happy where we’re at right now. Nobody. We’re 2-2, man. That’s not good. We have too much talent to be 2-2. Too many people care to be 2-2,” nose tackle Ryan Pickett said. This came […]

The Packers Defensive Resurgence Begins On The Line And A Few Other Notes

No, it wasn’t lost on us. We pointed out how well the Green Bay Packers defense played in week one both during the game and in the aftermath. That, however, has been somewhat lost in the blather surrounding the terrible performance of the Packers offensive line. It should be noted, though, both Cullen Jenkins and […]

Green Bay Packers: 5 Reasons for Excitement

Hi. Im here to save Mike McCarthys job.

With training camp beginning at the end of the month, I am starting to get excited for the upcoming Green Bay Packers season. Since we’re in the down time between the Packers mini-camp and training camp, I figured now is as good a time as any to get you excited too. There are some very […]

Positional Notes: Kampman, Barbre and Raji Looking for a Fit

Aaron Kampman

We know more about this year’s version of Green Bay Packers now that the team’s first mini-camp has concluded. It has been well documented that former Packers’ defensive end turned outside linebacker Aaron Kampman has been a bit uneasy about the position change this offseason. First, he wouldn’t even discuss it. When he finally did […]
