Center Dan Koppen is a free agent the Packers could possibly sign, but likely won’t.
We started the conversation about the Packers biggest draft needs by position group on Monday. Now let’s take a look at possible free-agent targets for Ted Thompson.
It’s probably best to get this discussion out of our system right away. As usual, I doubt Thompson will do much in free agency. He signed Jeff Saturday last offseason, and Saturday ended up on the bench. That’s not going to entice Thompson to run back to the free-agent pool for immediate help.
If Thompson does bring in some free agents, they will probably be system-types — role players that most of us have never heard of that may or may not even make the team. But, hey, posting a blank page probably wouldn’t generate much discussion, so let’s pretend Thompson might want to bring in a guy or two from the outside.
Who might be a good fit? Again, don’t get your hopes up, but it’s at least worth discussin.
Jason Jones, DL

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers knows he won't be appearing on Super Bowl lead-in coverage this season as he did a year ago. After all, this year's Super Bowl is on CBS, the network responsible for the "60 Minutes" piece that Rodgers took offense to earlier this season.
"I can say I won't be working for CBS," Rodgers said on his ESPN Wisconsin radio...
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told Jason Wilde on his weekly show on WAUK-AM (540) that Charles Woodson is one of the core players of the team and needs to be brought back for next season.
“I know he is under contract and that he is an important part of our football team,” Rodgers said about Woodson. “I think he adds a lot. He is still playing at a really high...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Five months after undergoing surgery to repair his torn right hamstring, Packers inside linebacker Desmond Bishop is nearly back to full health.
"I'm feeling really good right now," Bishop said last week. "The main thing I'm lacking is my strength and my strength is coming back real fine. I'm excited about it."
There are no physical...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers will be watching the Super Bowl from home for the second consecutive year, but the Packers' MVP quarterback once again proved that star NFL players can be known for more than just their on-field success.
Rodgers is very involved with the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund, frequently participating in many aspects of the foundation...
Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee writes that Packers C Jeff Saturday is “likely to retire.”
Saturday, 37, was signed as a stop gap for the Packers after they lost Scott Wells during free agency, but he was ultimately benched in favor of Evan Dietrich-Smith. Green Bay reportedly sees Dietrich-Smith as a long-term option at center, but GM Ted Thompson was seen speaking with Oregon...
Due to the success of the Green Bay Packers franchise it is difficult to sum up a season in which a very talented team falls short of the Superbowl and the NFC Championship game for a second year in a row.
This season’s team had a lot of talent on their roster, but once again, in the playoffs they where beat up and sent home packing far earlier than Packer fans would like.
A summer illness kept Green Bay’s fifth-round pick from contributing on defense
The Green Bay Packers began the season with 10 rookies on the 53-man roster. That’s a pretty high number – especially for a team than won 15 games the previous year. But GM Ted Thompson didn’t hang on to all those rookies to save money or to make himself look good. He kept them because they could...

In a bit of news you may never read again in your life, Green Bay Packers running back Cedric Benson is reportedly due in court next month for an attack by his dogs. The attack was not on a human, or another dog, but on livestock. According...
Maybe Bryan Bulaga will finally be in position to fill the position he was drafted to play, the first-round draft pick from 2010 could be on the move to left tackle, according to Rob Reischel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, after excelling on the right side. Marshall Newhouse struggled at left tackle this past season and former first-round pick Derek Sherrod has struggled to remain...
James Starks couldn't stay on the field and Alex Green failed to impress when given the chance.
DuJuan Harris was a godsend, but he lacks the size to be a lead back while Ryan Grant's better days were in 2007.
So when the Green Bay Packers begin their 2013 campaign, don't be surprised to see the running back position come full circle - with the needle once again...
GREEN BAY, Wis. As a former NFL kicker watching a current one, new Packers Hall of Fame inductee Chris Jacke could tell what was wrong with Mason Crosby this season.
When Crosby's struggles wore on, especially during a midseason stretch in which he missed five of his nine field goals, Jacke could tell something had changed.
"I firmly believe with him it was mental,"...
We look back at the season with our featured performer, depth chart, unit grade and look ahead to 2013. Clay Matthews had a dominant season, even while missing four games. Even though the other outside linebackers combined for nine sacks, the Packers need someone to emerge as a consistent sidekick.
