Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee takes a look at the entire Green Bay Packer’s franchise and where things stand as they head into the offseason.

Packers Come Up Short At End

At 6’4 and 325 pounds, Johnny Jolly looked and played like a 3-4 defensive end Johnny Jolly hasn’t played a game for the Packers since January 2010, but his absence on the D-line is still being felt.
