Jarrett Boykin was a pleasant surprise last summer. Is he ready to be the Packers’ No. 4 receiver?
A year ago, the Packers had a crowded group of wide receivers. A declining Donald Driver was buried on the depth chart behind veterans Greg Jennings, Jordy Nelson and James Jones, as well as a budding star in Randall Cobb.
But that was then, and this is now. Driver is retired, and Jennings is playing for the Minnesota Vikings and (apparently really excited about) catching passes from Christian Ponder. Last season, Driver barely played and Jennings missed eight games.
But between Jennings and Driver are six career Pro Bowl selections and ten 1,000-yard seasons. So needless to say, the Packers face some unanswered questions at the position headed into the 2013 season.
Nelson, Jones and Cobb will all return.
Of the three, Jones was the only player to play all 16 games last season, but the trio combined for 2,483 receiving yards and 29 touchdowns. That accounts for 57,8 percent of Aaron Ro...

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers admitted to Tom Pelissero of USA Today Sports that things are different without both Greg Jennings and Donald Driver being around. “Not having those two and a good friend of mine, Charles Woodson, who I played with for a long time just like those guys — that’s different,” Rodgers said. “So, we’re a different football team. Lacking...
Jermichael Finley came on after the bye week last season. Will this be Finley’s last season in Green Bay?
In five years with the Packers, Jermichael Finley has went from being the outspoken tight end to a focal point of the offense, and again, back to the outspoken tight end.
And in a circus-cautious locker room such as the one in Green Bay, Finley has been one of the most scrutinized...

The Green Bay Packers finished last season 12-4 and won the NFC North title in back to back years. Along with those back to back titles have been back to back exits in the NFC Divisional playoffs. While they have a top five offense, their defense has been below average the past couple years. With those stats in mind, here...
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told USA TODAY Sports that training camp will be “a little different” this year not having wide receivers Greg Jennings and Donald Driver. “Not having those two and a good friend of mine, Charles Woodson, who I played with for a long time
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- No Greg Jennings. No Donald Driver. It seems like an ideal scenario for a backup wide receiver like Jarrett Boykin to emerge in the Green Bay Packers' high-scoring offense.
Boykin doesn't see it that way, though. Not because it isn't, in fact, a great opportunity for the second-year receiver to have a much bigger role this season, but simply because...

With today's dedication of roughly 7,000 new seats in the south end zone of Lambeau Field, the Green Bay Packers now boast the third largest stadium in the National Football League, with seating for approximately 81,000 fans. When Lambeau Field opened in 1957, it was then known as City Stadium and had a seating capacity of 32,500 (the name was changed in 1965, when it was renamed...

Harper’s Brother looks like Aaron Rodgers?
It is often said that competition will breed excellence. With the Packers looking to improve their run game they certainly have added plenty of competition to their backfield. This is the first of a three-part set profiling the Packers three most competitive positions when training camp starts on July 26.
Ever since Mike McCarthy took over as the Packers head coach in 2006 the Packers...
On September 30, 2012, Graham Harrell played in his first game for the green and gold. Stepping in for Aaron Rodgers was no small task, especially in the red zone of a tight game. The result: a disastrous fumble on his first and only play, not the impression a backup quarterback wants to leave in limited duty.
Fortunately, the Packers won the game and the botched play never stuck...
