Larry Brown Sports:
Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun have a lot in common and have developed a friendship because of it. They’re both star athletes in Wisconsin, from California, and they each won MVP awards last year. Rodgers defended Braun when the failed drug test first came out, and he told MLB to eat crow after Braun won his appeal. Now the two are opening a restaurant in Brookfield, Wisc. together — Braun’s second restaurant.
According to a press release, the restaurant will be called “8*twelve” and it’s expected to open in late June.
“8*twelve will offer American cuisine including many family favorites as well as steaks and seafood. Executive Chef Aaron Patin designed the menu, creating items that will offer an extra zest of flavor by being prepared in the wood fire grill, a center point of the kitchen. Fans of both players will see memorabilia in the bar area, which will also include numerous big-screen televisions to catch sporting events.”
Both players are expected to make scheduled and unsche...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- He's an MVP, a Super Bowl champion, and now, Aaron Rodgers has his own day.
Seven months after Wisconsin resident Jennifer Brilowski started a Facebook fan page for the idea of 121212 being Aaron Rodgers Day in Wisconsin, it will become official.

Does James Starks give the Packers the best chance to win?
The Green Bay Packers have the most potent passing game in the NFL heading into the 2012 season. While their pass-happy offense with Aaron Rodgers and his ridiculous amount of weapons in certainly impressive, the same can’t be said for their running backs and their ground game.
If Green Bay wants to improve off an impressive...
Kris with Tom Crabtree
Tom Crabtree stood on stage and told all of us he hoped never to see us again.
No, the Green Bay Packers tight end didn’t go all “Jay Cutler emo” on us. What he meant was that he didn’t want to see us at the 2013 Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Walk to Cure Diabetes because he wanted a cure to be found by then and therefore nullifying...

Rodgers Goes Out...
Considering where he was only a few years ago, it's crazy how big-time Aaron Rodgers continues to become. The Packers quarterback, who golfs fairly regularly with Michael Jordan and has become a regular at some of the biggest non-football events like the Kentucky Derby, was recently named the most marketable player in the NFL by the Sports Business Journal.
So in addition to...
In an exclusive interview that's the basis for a lengthy feature in Packer Report Magazine, Packer Report talked to new center Jeff Saturday. While most observers assumed Saturday would follow Peyton Manning to Denver, Saturday had several reasons why he chose Green Bay.
Former Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant is showing off his elusiveness this offseason. And while he’s never been known as anything but a runner who seeks out contact, you wouldn’t have guessed it from his and his agent’s shiftiness concerning the Lions.
Last Thursday, Grant’s agent, Alan Herman, told the Detroit Free Press via text message that Grant would be...
What did the Packers see in Casey Hayward? Read the NFL's official report and you'll understand why general manager Ted Thompson vaulted back into the second round. This is not some scouting report from a guy watching YouTube videos. This is the real deal, delivered to the teams.
While any move probably depends on the play of the safeties and other cornerbacks, Charles Woodson said he is willing to move from cornerback, where he has been elected to four consecutive Pro Bowls.
Okay, word is that Ryan Grant was heading to Detroit to close a deal with the Lions. Or he didn't. Or he did. Or he was a no-show. Or he was in disguise. Or ...
Junior Seau's suicide shocked everyone who pays attention to the NFL.
If the NFL wants a case study on how not to handle tragic situations involving past and current players, it should look no further than professional wrestling.
Here’s a small sample of well-known professional wrestlers who have died before the age of 50 since 1997: Bam Bam Biggelow, Eddie Guerrero, The Big...
