It took all the way until No. 31, but the Green Bay Packers have finally landed a current player on the NFL Network's countdown of the top 100 players with outside linebacker Clay Matthews.
This is actually a slight fall down the rankings for Matthews. Last year, NFL Network's countdown placed Matthews at No. 27. Strangely, Matthews actually had a much more productive 2012 season than he did in 2011. Despite Green Bay's 15-1 regular season record in 2011, Matthews had a career-low six sacks. In 2012, however, Matthews nearly topped his career-best performance in sacks with 13.
In April, the Packers signed Matthews to a five-year, 66 million contract extension, making him the highest-paid linebacker in the NFL.
The Top 100 countdown, which is voted on by current players, placed Charles Woodson at No. 85. Woodson was still a free agent at the time, but the veteran defensive back has since signed with the Oakland Raiders.

Brett Favre says it was his fault for the way things ended badly between he and the Green Bay Packers in 2007.
“I was at fault. I feel that both sides had a part in it,” Favre said in a radio interview with WGR 550. “If you could go back would I or them have done things differently? I’m sure both sides would. But you can’t.”
“So I hate it, that it happened that...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Mason Crosby wasn't surprised that the Green Bay Packers decided to bring in some competition for him. The 28-year-old kicker knew he deserved that after finishing the 2012 season with the worst field-goal success rate in the NFL.
But as Crosby has watched recent signing Giorgio Tavecchio split kicks with him during minicamp and other offseason practices, he...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Packers running back DuJuan Harris went in for the standard pre-minicamp physical Monday and found a lot more than anyone was expecting.
After missing the first couple days of Green Bay's minicamp practices, Harris revealed Wednesday the reason for his absence.

To wrap up their OTAs, the Green Bay Packers held a Dodgeball tournament in lieu of practice for some much needed team building. The wet weather forced them to do something inside, rather than playing paintball like they have in years past.
Not surprisingly, the players were into it from start to finish. Eight captains selected teams of roughly a dozen players...
Green Bay Packers running back DuJuan Harris will miss the rest of offseason workouts as he recovers from surgery to remove a cyst near his heart. He expects to be recovered in time for training camp.

How fast a man’s feelings can change. Barely a year and a half ago, back when he was still with the Green Bay Packers, wide receiver Greg Jennings claimed that Aaron Rodgers was a better quarterback than Brett Favre had ever been. While a guest on the Ian O’Connor show out of ESPN New York 1050, [...]The post Greg Jennings disses Aaron Rodgers by Rourke Douglas Decker appeared...
Breakups are always hard and the one that happened between the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Brett Favre was easily one of the worst. Like most breakups, its the kids (or in this case the fans) that got the short end of the stick.
Is it okay to still love your favorite player or do you have to hate him now that he's playing for the 'other' team?
Fans may not...
Randall Cobb led the NFL in total yards, among other categories, despite missing a game-and-a-half last season. Now, without Greg Jennings and Donald Driver, the Packers need even more from their do-it-all star.
The Big Leagues It's a long off-season, huh?
1.) Aaron Rodgers: Green Bay Packers
- Despite having one of the worst offensive lines in the league, virtually no running game and receiver by committee, Aaron Rodgers still managed to throw for 4,295 yards and 32 TDs. Rodgers carried this team last season on his shoulders to an 11-5 regular season record. Leading the league with a passer rating of 108, Rodgers led the Packers to...
Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers seem headed for a reconciliation of some sorts. Favre is clearly retired now and headed to a first ballot Hall of Fame, so why not kiss and make up right?
Favre was speaking to Joe Buscaglia of WGR-AM in Buffalo on Thursday to promote Jim Kelly’s “Hunter’s Hope” charity auction, and took the blame for how his career in Green Bay ended...
