GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It didn't take long for Tyrone Walker to feel that he was making a good impression on the Green Bay Packers' coaching staff.
Brought in on a tryout basis to the Packers' rookie orientation camp in May, Walker immediately performed better than a typical undrafted wide receiver who was just hoping to earn a non-guaranteed contract.
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- At the start of training camp, the Green Bay Packers were hoping that someone would perform well enough that Randall Cobb could be removed from special teams return duties. Jeremy Ross is getting very close to allowing the Packers to do just that.
"I think Jeremy has an excellent chance," coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday.
Two weeks ago, McCarthy had...

Movin' On Up:CB Micah Hyde
It's been an impressive training camp for rookie cornerback Micah Hyde. One day after making a spectacular interception in the end zone in which he fell backwards and tipped the ball to himself on the ground, Hyde had another memorable play Thursday when he jumped...
Packers cornerback Tramon Williams has been sidelined since late June with a bone bruise in his knee.
Williams believes he’ll be ready for the Packers season opener against the 49ers.
“I think so, I think so,” Williams said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “I’ve never really thought about that. I thought I’d be playing now. But I think so.”
Williams says he’s...
According to FOX Sports Wisconsin, Packers quarterback Vince Young is starting to look pretty good in practice.
During an individual drill in which the quarterbacks faked a handoff and rolled out to throw a pass into the target netting, Young was on top of his game. Rolling to his left and throwing across his body, Young went 3 for 3 in the drill, successfully landing each of his...
Though he suffered a minor knee injury and was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list to begin the 2013 training camp, DuJuan Harris remains the Green Bay Packers favorite to start. This despite the two highly touted running backs selected in this year’s draft; Eddie Lacy from Alabama and Johnathan Franklin from UCLA.
For those of you unfamiliar with DuJuan’s career...

Movin' On Up:
Kickers Mason Crosby and Giorgio Tavecchio
It was a perfect day for both Crosby and Tavecchio. In 16 field-goal attempts, there was not a single miss. Going back and forth, Crosby and Tavecchio connected from distances of 33 yards, 36 yards, 39 yards, 43 yards, 45 yards, 48...
The first game of the Packers season is in the books. Even though it was a 17-7* preseason loss to the Arizona Cardinals (yeah, um James Starks scored, watch the replay on NFLN) there were some real positives to take away from that game. The defense minus Davon House (what the hell Davon) played well. New LT David Bakhtiari acquitted himself nicely against a very good defense...
Despite the rumors about him being overweight and the injury concerns it looks like Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy will start and get the bulk of the carries this season. Lacy has the most talent out of every back on the roster and outperformed them in camp as well. His size should also allow him to be a huge weapon at the goal line.
Overview: Franklin hasn’t shown...
The Packers first preseason game did not go as smoothly as most would have hoped. They were shut out 17-0 at home at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals, and aside from their first offensive possession they were unable to sustain drives when Aaron Rodgers exited the game. As coach Mike McCarthy said after the game there was plenty of room to grow, and he was right, but where exactly...
The Johnny Manziel reality show has had everyone in the sports world talking. The latest person is Aaron Rodgers who was asked about the media by Peter King but went on to talk about Johnny Manziel:
“I feel bad for Johnny Manziel. I mean, he’s made some decisions … I just think, he’s a 20-year-old kid, and I wish he could just live like a 20-year-old.
“Ten years ago, when...
When it comes to the many adventures of Johnny Manziel, there are generally two lines of thought. On one side, you have people who think he is a spoiled college kid who needs to focus less on partying and more on football. On the other, there are people who say a 20-year-old kid is entitled […]
