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.

Training Camp Observations 8-11, Full Pads

Dom Capers

It’s the last night practice of training camp. The Green Bay Packers decided to throw all the tourists off and change the schedule for the rest of the practices. They’ll now start at 11:15 a.m. Under pressure I know some of this could be attributed to [intlink id="305" type="category"]Dom Capers[/intlink]‘ defense, but the offense was […]

Jermichael Finley Has A Lot Of Reasons To Be Motivated

Jermichael Finley

Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is motivated by: A. Another Packers Super Bowl run B. The fact the Packers keep adding tight ends to the roster C. Money D. All of the above I think we all know the answer to the question is D.

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 […]

Preparing For Finley’s Departure? Pack May Add Another Tight End

Jermichael Finley

We all kind of scratched our collective heads when the Green Bay Packers drafted tight end Andrew Quarless in last year’s draft. The team seemed stocked at the position at the time, with Jermichael Finley, Donald Lee and Spencer Havner. The Packers ended up cutting Havner, Lee didn’t perform and Finley got hurt, so it […]

Francois, Gordy Are Your Newest Packers

The Green Bay Packers filled the two roster spots vacated when they placed Brandon Chillar and Spencer Havner on injured reserve by promoting Robert Francois and Josh Gordy from the practice squad. Francois, a linebacker, was on the Packers’ roster for four games earlier this season. He was originally promoted from the practice squad prior […]

Chillar, Havner The Latest Packers To Injured Reserve

Brandon Chillar

The Green Bay Packers now have 13 players on injured reserve after the team placed linebacker Brandon Chillar and tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner there, Tuesday. Both players aggravated injuries — Chillar a shoulder and Havner a hamstring — in the Packers’ loss to Atlanta. Chillar recorded 16 tackles, a sack and an interception in eight […]

Chillar, Havner Could Miss Extended Time, Lee On The Outs

Brandon Chillar

Not that the news is going to change the season, but the Green Bay Packers are likely to be without linebacker Brandon Chillar and tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner for a while. Chillar aggravated the shoulder injury he suffered earlier in the year on kickoff coverage in the first half of the Packers’ loss to Atlanta. […]

Packers Sign Havner, Tauscher To Injured Reserve

As expected, the Green Bay Packers signed tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner. Coming as somewhat of a surprise, is the Packers cleared a roster spot for Havner by putting tackle Mark Tauscher on injured reserve. Tauscher has been battling a shoulder injury and hasn’t played since week four. Rookie Bryan Bulaga has started in Tauscher’s place […]

Havner Could Be Back With Packers Soon

The Green Bay Packers worked out tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner on Tuesday and will reportedly sign him soon, according to Scout.com. Havner took a physical for the Packers last week. The continued interest signals that the Packers very likely will re-sign Havner, perhaps as soon as Monday, when the team gathers for its first practice […]

Welcome Back Spencer Havner…

That’s what I might eventually say if I were Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson. Tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner was placed on the waived/injured list today by the Detroit Lions. Havner was released by the Packers during their final preseason roster cuts. Havner could provide valuable depth for the Packers, who are battling injuries […]

Packers’ Road To 53

The Green Bay Packers had to release 22 players today to get to the 53-man roster limit. Perhaps the biggest surprise among those players is safety and return man Will Blackmon. Blackmon has been injured for much of training camp and that certainly didn’t help his chances of making the roster, but he was considered […]

Havner Back At Linebacker

Spencer Havner was a linebacker in college and spent his first couple years in the NFL at the same position before switching to tight end prior to last season. Havner looked like he had found a home at tight end — entering training camp No. 2 on the depth chart — and had carved out […]

A Look At The Packers Depth Chart

The Green Bay Packers have released their first depth chart, which gives us a good idea of who is and who isn’t performing well. It also sheds some light on who is playing where. On the offensive side of the ball there aren’t any big surprises. Most notable is that Donald Lee has regained the […]

Training Camp Observations, Aug 5, Full Pads

Atari Bigby and Morgan Burnett

Here’s a quick look at Green Bay Packers training camp from Aug. 5. Breno Giacomini running with the No. 2 offense Maybe this is due in part to T.J. Lang being a little banged up, but Breno Giacomini has been lining up with the second-string offense at right tackle and even lined up with first […]

Packers Depth Chart: That’s Interesting, Man

The Sporting News released their pre-training camp preview for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday and our initial reaction was, to borrow a line from The Dude, that’s interesting, man. The depth chart wasn’t interesting so much for the starting lineups, but more surprising on some of the second-string players. First, it’s important to point […]

Who’s Out At Tight End?

We won’t know the answer to this question until training camp is complete, but the Green Bay Packers have a logjam at tight end after drafting Andrew Quarless in the fifth round of the NFL Draft. Joining Quarless is starter Jermichael Finley, Spencer Havner and Donald Lee, who opened 2009 as the starter. Unless the […]
