Something For The Ladies: Will Blackmon Is A Model [Photo]

Will Blackmon

Remember Will Blackmon? He hasn’t had much success sticking with a team since tearing up his knee with the Green Bay Packers in 2009. It now looks like he’s ready to give up the NFL to become a model. We’re not kidding.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Observations From Packers 17-13 Loss To Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium

The Green Bay Packers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13, Thursday night in their preseason finale. The game wasn’t easy to watch. The starters played only one series and veterans Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Chad Clifton and Charles Woodson were healthy scratches. There were some interesting developments in the game, however, and […]

Chery Will Get Opportunity As Return Man

Wide receiver Jason Chery is getting an opportunity to make the Green Bay Packers as a return man. After returning a punt 75 yards for a touchdown in last week’s win over Indianapolis, Chery will return all punts and kickoffs in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Kansas City Chiefs. Will Blackmon, who was thought to […]

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 […]

Packers Veterans Who May Be In Trouble

At the end of every summer, the Green Bay Packers end up cutting a couple veteran players whose release comes as a surprise. Last year, it was receiver Ruvell Martin and safety Anthony Smith. Here’s a list of several players who could potentially be on that list this year. Justin Harrell, defensive tackle — The […]

Training Camp Observations — August 19

Morgan Burnett

The following is from Green Bay Packers training camp on Aug. 19. Moving Bulaga around In an interesting development on the offensive line, rookie Bryan Bulaga, who was spending most of his time at left guard, was moved back to starting left tackle for the morning practice with veteran Chad Clifton resting. Bulaga has been […]

Return Game Outlook: Hazy

Will Blackmon

Green Bay Packers training camp is pretty boring if you’re looking for real competition. The biggest and closest competition is at punter and the only real positional battle, at least for a starting spot, looks to be between Brandon Chillar and Brad Jones for the left outside linebacker spot. Not terribly exciting stuff. So, if […]

Training Camp Observations, Aug. 3, Morning Shells

Nick Collins

I’m here at the early practice once again. It’s 70 degrees, overcast, and very humid. Quick observations: Team drills – Brandon Chillar gets the nod at OLB with Brad Jones still out. – Looks like we’ll have a long portion of team drills. Not much to report during those. Game situation, offense vs defense – […]

Bigby, Harris And Starks Fail Physicals

Green Bay Packers safety Atari Bigby, cornerback Al Harris and running back James Starks failed their physicals on Friday and will start training camp on the physically unable to perform list. Harris, who is recovering from a devastating knee injury, was expected to start training camp on the PUP list. Bigby, and to a lesser […]

Bulaga, Packers Agree On Five-Year Deal

The Green Bay Packers will open training camp with all of their players under contract, after first-round draft choice Bryan Bulaga signed a five-year deal this morning. The deal is worth $14.75 million with $8.76 million guaranteed. Bulaga was the final player without a contract, after safety Atari Bigby signed his restricted free agent tender […]

Looking At The Packers As Preseason Favorite

Brad Jones

You hear a lot more about the idea in the national media than you do in the local media, that of the Green Bay Packers as a preseason favorite. Peter King ranked the Packers atop his preseason power rankings. Pro Football Weekly and Yahoo! Sports will declare the Packers their Super Bowl favorite in their […]

Blackmon Moved To Safety, Clearing The Way For More Jarrett Bush

The Green Bay Packers love them some Jarrett Bush. And what’s not to love? It’s like inserting your favorite slapstick comedy right into an NFL game! Jarrett Bush is the Lt. Frank Drebin of the Green Bay Packers. Despite bungling just about everything imaginable, he still manages to live and catch the bad guy, or […]

Ted Ginn Could Power The Packers’ Return Game

Ted Ginn Jr.

The Miami Dolphins’ acquisition of receiver Brandon Marshall from the Denver Broncos has several ramifications, but the one most interesting to the Green Bay Packers is Dolphins’ receiver/return man Ted Ginn Jr. has now been labeled the odd man out in Miami. Let’s get this out of the way first. Ted Thompson is about as […]

What Is Packers’ Biggest Need?

The Green Bay Packers have several glaring holes this offseason – offensive line, cornerback and safety among them – but I’ve been wavering as to which is the most troublesome. Offensive tackle is the obvious answer, but the cornerback position is an increasing concern on par with, if not greater than, the tackle position. The […]

Packers’ Improve From Within Rhetoric Getting Old

Ted Thompson

It’s been pretty well documented how badly the Green Bay Packers fared against top-flight quarterbacks last season. I’ll give it to you in four words: they fucking sucked ass. This offseason the team has done little to address the deficiencies in that area. As usual, there was no outside free agent signings to speak of, […]

Will Blackmon Signs Tender

Green Bay Packers cornerback/return man Will Blackmon has signed his restricted free agent tender, taking himself off the free agent market. Blackmon’s one-year tender was for $1.176 million. He signed the deal on Monday when the Packers opened their offseason workout program. The compensation if another team had signed Blackmon would have been a fourth round […]
