We talked about it for much of the season — Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has developed into one of the league’s best cover corners. Now, the hardcore football geek statistics have validated the statement. Williams appears near the top of Football Outsiders cornerback charting stats for 2010.
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.
Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams made the Pro Bowl after all. Although many saw Williams as one of the biggest snubs when the Pro Bowl rosters were announced, Williams, who was a first alternate, has been added to the NFC roster because the Philadelphia Eagles Asante Samuel cannot play due to injury. Tramon had […]
Signing cornerback Tramon Williams to a contract extension was a great move by the Green Bay Packers, but probably not such a great move by Williams. The Packers locked Williams up with a four-year extension averaging $8.25 million per season, in late November. With Williams’ recent performance, that looks like a bargain. Not only did […]
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 […]
Five members of the Green Bay Packers made the Pro Bowl. Despite appearing in the NFL’s Pro Bowl ad, quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not one of them. The Packers who will make the trip to Hawaii are receiver Greg Jennings, tackle Chad Clifton, linebacker Clay Matthews, cornerback Charles Woodson and safety Nick Collins. Collins, Woodson […]
Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has signed a four-year contract extension. The deal averages $8.25 million per season and locks up Williams through 2014. Williams will receive $14,376,333 in base salary this year, with $5.074 million guaranteed, according to the Journal Sentinel. The total worth of the contract is $41.25 million, which includes a […]
Shawn: I’ve said all year the Green Bay Packers would win this week’s game, and if anything, I believe even more strongly in that prediction now. The Atlanta Falcons are 8-2, sure. Everyone seems to have forgotten that they beat the Saints after Garrett Hartley missed two easy field goals that would have won the […]
Green Bay Packers linebacker Desmond Bishop finally got his chance to start and he’s making the most of it. Bishop has outperformed Nick Barnett, who he replaced in the starting lineup after Barnett’s season-ending wrist injury, by a wide margin. So far this season, Bishop has 54 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble, and an […]
It’s somewhat surprising it ended like this, but the Green Bay Packers have released cornerback Al Harris, a move first reported by Jason Wilde. Harris, who suffered a major knee injury last November, has been on the physically unable to perform list throughout the season. The Packers had to make a decision on whether to […]
We gave you the midseason awards: other people’s edition yesterday and we also told you what we thought about midseason awards. The best word to summarize would be this one: indifference. However, we promised you our midseason awards at some point, and here they are. The difference between our midseason awards and other people’s are […]
We’ve somehow made it through eight weeks of the NFL season and you know what that means — every dickhead with column space is handing out their midseason awards, naming All-Pro teams, etc. What does a midseason award get you? Not a goddam thing, but the stats tells me people like to read about them, […]
The Green Bay Packers are finally ready to pony up for cornerback Tramon Williams, who is having his best season in his first as a full-time starter. According to the Journal Sentinel, the Packers have offered Williams a contract that will pay him greater than $5 million per year. Williams is currently playing on a […]
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 […]
The Green Bay Packers will get cornerback Al Harris, safety Atari Bigby and running back James Starks back this week. All three players have been on the physically unable to perform list since the beginning of the season and this week is the first they are eligible to return to practice. Coach Mike McCarthy said […]
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 […]
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 […]
After the Green Bay Packers gave cornerback Charles Woodson a contract extension yesterday, there was was some speculation Tramon Williams might be next. Williams will start at cornerback opposite Woodson this season, at least until Al Harris returns from the physically unable to perform list and gets back into football shape. Although Williams commits his […]
Ted Thompson may not be done tweaking the Green Bay Packers roster yet. The Packers brought in former Tampa Bay returner Clifton Smith and former Jacksonville safety Gerald Alexander for workouts, Tuesday. Smith was Pro Bowl return man for the Buccaneers in 2008 and has career averages of 28.3 yards on kickoff returns and 12.1 […]
