The Inside Dirt on the Packers Restricted Free Agents

Nick Collins

The Green Bay Packers have submitted tenders to nine restricted free agents. The team hasn’t announced at what level they’ve tendered them, but some information has surfaced in the past 24 hours. Here’s a summary. Nick Collins – The Packers starting free safety received the highest possible tender, which is a 10 percent increase on […]

Packers Tender Blackmon, Williams; Colledge Has Competition

The Green Bay Packers used the original-round tender on cornerback Will Blackmon, who is returning from a knee injury. The tender is for $1.176 million and gives the Packers the right to match any offer Blackmon receives. If Blackmon signs with another team, the Packers would receive a fourth-round draft pick. Meanwhile, cornerback Tramon Williams, […]

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 […]

Packers Have Some Work To Do In the Middle

Early Doucet

The Green Bay Packers defense was exposed by the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The NFL’s second-ranked unit fell apart against the vaunted Cardinals passing attack, much the same way they did three weeks earlier against the Pittsburgh Steelers. It’s now pretty clear why these things have happened. The middle of the Packers defense if vulnerable […]

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, […]

Packers Tried to Bring In Aaron Stecker

I have it from a reliable source that the Green Bay Packers tried to bring in former Ashwaubenon star Aaron Stecker for a tryout today. Unfortunately, the Packers didn’t get a chance to take a look at the former Tampa Bay and New Orleans running back/kick returner, as he had already signed with the Atlanta […]

Mark Tauscher Deal is Done

Although reports on the terms of the contract aren’t available yet, Mark Tauscher is officially a member of the Green Bay Packers again. Tauscher’s signing was announced this morning. Tauscher worked out with the team last Tuesday and we knew a deal was imminent since then. Tauscher will have to work himself back into playing […]

Blackmon Done for Year, Nelson to Return Kicks

It should come as no surprise to anyone who saw the play during Monday night’s Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings game that Will Blackmon is out for the year. Blackmon tore his ACL on a second-quarter kickoff return and will be placed on injured reserve. Jordy Nelson will fill in for Blackmon on kick returns, […]

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 […]

The Packers Cornerback Battle

While the Green Bay Packers certainly have some positions up for grabs this offseason – the entire offensive line, two defensive line spots, two outside linebacker spots, and fullback are in play, as well as who starts at safety alongside Nick Collins – there is one position that is more intriguing to me than any […]

Vikings vs. Packers: Who Sucked And Who Didn’t

Nick Barnett has been lost for the season.

Every week the Green Bay Packers are starting to look more and more like a team that simply won’t live up to expectations. Yesterday, the Packers lost yet another close game to an inferior opponent, this time, 28-27 to the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers should be better than this. Maybe it’s time to accept that […]

Al Harris May Be Gone For The Year

Reports are leaking out of Green Bay declaring Al Harris’ season officially over. The Packers’ cornerback left last night’s loss to Dallas due, reportedly, to cramps. After all, as sideline reporter Andrea Kremer kept informing us, it was extremely humid in Green Bay last night. After the game it was reported that Harris was pissing […]

Koren Robinson Is Back!

Koren Robinson

Well, it’s not what you’re thinking. Koren Robinson is indeed back in the NFL, landing back with the team that originally drafted him ninth overall in 2001, the Seattle Seahawks. After the Green Bay Packers cut Koren back in May, I questioned who the hell was going to return kicks for our fine team. Fortunately, […]

Packers vs. Lions Quick Hits

Nick Collins and Greg Jennings

As much as I hate to be a wet blanket, Green Bay Packers’ fans should not start chanting “Su-per-Bowl” just yet. Even though Aaron Rodgers continues to impress and the Packers came up with big play after big play, there is plenty of room to improve. The final score, as they say, doesn’t indicate how […]

Thoughts On The Packers Return Game, The CBA And The Draft

Jordy Nelson

And they all tie together… First, the big news out of the NFL was the owners deciding to opt out of the current collective bargaining agreement. This assures an uncapped – and most assuredly insane – 2010 season. The future beyond that is uncertain. There may be a walkout or work stoppage, which no NFL […]
