Packers Tight End DJ Williams
The Packers have been practicing since Thursday of last week, and while it’s far too early to start shaping the final roster, a handful of players have people raising their eyebrows.
Can these three guys keep it going? Or will they wash out like so many other players who were superstars in late July, but duds in September?
D.J. Williams, TE
Instead of just lifting weights and doing cardio, Clay Matthews stepped outside of the box to get bigger and better after his rookie season. Matthews took up mixed martial arts training and went on to have a breakout second season. Apparently, Williams stepped outside the box this offseason, too…and into the cow pasture. The second-year TE says he’s gotten stronger thanks to an offseason cow-wrestling regimen back in his home state of Arkansas. Williams seems serious about it too, describing his technique in detail and talking about how he just tries to “not get hurt or die” when showing these cows who is the superio...

AROUND THE WEB
With the departure of former starting safety Charlie Peprah, who was released in a very similar manner to former inside linebacker Brandon Chillar for failing his physical at the start of training camp in 2010, all eyes now look towards Charles Woodson, MD Jennings and Jerron McMillian to see which ends up being the starting safety opposite Morgan Burnett.
Only a couple of problems...
Safety Morgan Burnett Taking Charge
After the Green Bay Packers cut ties with Pro Bowl safety Nick Collins, the importance of Morgan Burnett undoubtedly grew larger.On top of being the Packers’ key communicator on the back end of the defense, he was a turnover machine, constantly hovering deep in the middle of the defense waiting for his opportunity to jump routes or lay the lumber...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When the alarm begins to sound inside Donald Driver's college dorm room, his home during training camp, the 37-year-old Packers wide receiver still has the motivation after 13 NFL seasons not hit the snooze button. That might not seem like much, but to Driver, it means everything.
For Driver, it's a sign that he still has the energy to show up for a drill...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Former Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly is apparently quite low on the priority list of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
With Goodell in Green Bay for the Packers' training camp practice Wednesday morning as part of his brief preseason tour, a potential NFL return for the indefinitely suspended Jolly was a topic that was met with a quick response.
Green Bay Packers linebacker Erik Walden was suspended for one game by the NFL on Tuesday as a result of an arrest last November. Walden was charged following a dispute with his girlfriend, and he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges. He avoided jail time, but the league decided to punish him for what it considered a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy...
Defensive end Anthony Hargrove, already facing an eight-game suspension for his role in the Saints bounty pool, has been released by the Green Bay Packers.
The NFL has said the Saints' bounty program paid defensive players improper cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents from 2009 through 2011.
The 29-year-old Hargrove has denied NFL accusations that he lied to league...
WHO NEEDS TECHNOLOGY?
Packers tight end D.J. Williams said he has come back looking stronger this year in training camp because he wrestled cows during the offseason.
While it’s probably unfair to compare Mike Daniels to Mike Neal, that won’t stop some fans from making the analogy after the rookie from Iowa left Tuesday’s practice with a groin and/or knee injury. Neal has played in only 10 games since joining the Packers in 2010. Daniels, whose durability was questioned by scouts prior [...]
Green Bay Packers tight end Jermichael Finley has returned to practice after sitting out several days following what his wife described on Twitter was a mild concussion. Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee reports Finley was participating in practice this morning but that he has been held out of full 11-on-11 work. That makes sense. The Packers will work him in slowly as he comes back...
This is the the losersbracket.com style review of the Green Bay Packer Practice us losers attended today.
First let’s get to the chicks! This may have been a certain media star Jen Lada in front of us… best view of the day folks.
Jen Lada is smaller than Shaky Smithson (it’s not even that close!)
Here are our (in no particular order) non media filtered unbiased observations...
Inside linebacker Desmond Bishop and fullback John Kuhn were activated from the physically unable to perform list Tuesday, but tight end Andrew Quarless, left tackle Derek Sherrod, offensive lineman Jaymes Brooks, outside linebacker Frank Zombo and defensive lineman Johnny Jones remain on PUP. Quarless will almost certainly begin the season on the list, meaning he’ll [...]
