Found January 21, 2014 on The Pack Mentality:
It seems that Ben McAdoo is looking to make the Packers East in the Big Apple. It was already reported that McAdoo is going to make a play for Andrew Quarless during free agency and now it also seems like McAdoo wants to add James Starks to the Giants roster: The first report surfaced just a couple of days after McAdoo accepted the offensive coordinator’s position with the New York Giants. That report stated that the Giants would go after Packers tight end Andrew Quarless. Only a couple of days later, it was reported that the Giants may also show an interest in free agent running back James Starks, who had a successful season backing up rookie Eddie Lacy, though he did miss a couple of games because of a leg injury. The worrying part is that Starks makes sense for the Giants. The team has little running back depth behind Andre Brown and David Wilson just had neck surgery and his NFL future is in doubt. Meanwhile, the Packers could definitely use Starks as a change of pac...

Where are the Green Bay Packers in the way too early 2014 Power Rankings?

Only one game and two teams remain. For everyone else, the calendar (both in real terms and in the football world) has turned to 2014. Next season is now this season for 30 NFL franchises. Thus, it’s time to start assessing where everyone stacks up heading into next year. Who will bounce back? Who will fall off? Who has made good hires? And who has made bad fires? The regular season...

Quarless has 'more in the tank' as Packers TE hits free agency

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It didn't happen the way that Andrew Quarless wanted, but the Green Bay Packers tight end got the opportunity to show what he can do as the No. 1 option on the depth chart. The timing was perfect for him too, as Quarless will hit unrestricted free agency this offseason. After the season-ending injury to Jermichael Finley, Quarless had his moments. The back...

C Evan Dietrich-Smith unsure if he'll return to Packers

Green Bay C Evan Dietrich-Smith sounded the uncertain about his future with the Packers and for good reason, too. Dietrich-Smith saw what the team did with the players to his right and left as general manager Ted Thompson re-upped guards Josh Sitton and T.J. Lang months in advance. The 27-year-old Dietrich-Smith will enter free agency with no idea whether he'll return next season.

Packers free agent Mike Neal expects 'to be great' with another year at OLB

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Mike Neal isn't sure which position he'll play next season or for which team he'll be suiting up. Perhaps the Green Bay Packers will express strong interest in re-signing him, perhaps interest will be stronger elsewhere.  It's an uncertain future for Neal, a free agent whose situation is further complicated by his transition in 2013 to outside...

QB Aaron Rodgers says 2014 offseason 'very important' for his physical conditioning: 'I’m expecting to be in phenomenal shape come August'

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers came back in the nick of time to save the team's season, but he was barely cleared to play and still was walking on eggshells with his collarbone. Now that he can focus solely on his health, Rodgers says this is a critical offseason for him physically and he's going to work to be in the best shape he can come August.

Green Bay Packers 2014 Salary Cap Bonanza: Defense

In part one of this two part series I established the projected salary cap for 2014 to be $126.3 million and that the Packers are going in to this off season with roughly $27 million in cap space. I also projected the Packers to spend $6 million in 2014 cap space on locking down the […]The post Green Bay Packers 2014 Salary Cap Bonanza: Defense by Adam Kuhl appeared first on Water Cooler Sports.

According to a report from the Houston Chronicle, Young filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Via the Chronicle: Attorney Brian Kilmer of Houston filed the petition last week in a Houston federal bankruptcy court on Young’s behalf, listing […]Continue reading...

What's a GM to do? Stay the course, if you're Packers GM Ted Thompson.

An 8-8-1 win-lose-tie record can change people. After all, it's a bit of a sign of averageness (is there such a word?) if not outright mediocrity. That's where the Green Bay Packers find themselves after an injury-riddled, albeit NFC North Division Championship-winning season. Also, getting bounced in the first round of the playoffs -- by the same team, no less -- doesn&...

Looking Back/Ahead: Safeties

The Packers surprisingly bypassed the position in the draft, Morgan Burnett regressed, nobody emerged and Jerron McMillian was released. So, where do the Packers turn? We look back and have a juicy rumor from a scout at the Senior Bowl.

Championship Breakdown, With a Packers Spin

Championship weekend was a bittersweet moment for Packers fans. Sweet because championship weekend lived up to the billing, and is one of the best weekends in sports. However, it was bitter because the Packers were not playing. Good news is, there was plenty to be gleaned from these games for the Packers to adapt to.   First up on the day was the Denver Broncos facing off against...

Eye In The Sky

I’m currently in the process of watching every defensive snap from this past season. I’ll be periodically posting my findings here. I’ll be watching schemes, the performances of individual players, etc. I’m just now really getting started, and I have already learned a lot. I’m really excited about digging in even further. In the meantime, I thought I would do one last post...

Ted Never Stops Scouting

Here’s what Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting tweeted last week from the site of the East-West Shrine game: “Ted Thompson still here. The man lives ‘first one in, last one out’ mantra. Respect the hell out of him.” This next tweet came from Dane Brugler of “I was the second person to arrive at West practices. The only person who beat me? Ted Thompson...

Looking Back/Ahead: Cornerbacks

We review 2013 with our good, bad, surprise and grade, plus take a look at what's ahead in 2014. Even with the strong play of Tramon Williams, Sam Shields and Micah Hyde, the Packers missed Casey Hayward's big-play ability.
