With the draft getting closer and closer, the Packers have to address the team’s biggest question mark. Derek Sherrod has been earmarked as the staring left tackle this season. He was drafted in the first round in 2011 and is still seeking his first start. Ted Thompson must decide how much stock he needs to place in offensive linemen Derek Sherrod — who has been projected as the starting left tackle. The former first rounder has only played in five games with no starts mainly because of a compound leg fracture. It’s not only a huge risk to put Sherrod in a position to get some quality time. But it’s even more of a gamble when the guy who he’s protecting is the best quarterback in the league. This is a make or break year for Sherrod. He is playing out the final year of his four-year, $6.6 million deal. The Mississippi State standout could have a dramatic turnaround for the first time in his four-year career this season. He could help own the line of scrimmage and give Rodgers ample t...

Packers team needs at kicker and punter

Each and every offseason brings new competition within each franchise as athletes are fighting for their lives to make one of the 32 teams that make up the NFL. The Packers are no different.

Packers 2014 Draft: Why Green Bay Needs Colorado WR Paul Richardson

I know that the first thing people usually think about when it comes to the Packers drafting players in the first round is defense, but in this case taking a nice WR like Colorado’s Paul Richardson might not be a bad idea. In his three year career at Boulder, Richardson was overall pretty good, catching a total of 156 passes (83 alone last season, a school-record) for 2,412 yards...

Breaking Down Matt Flynn’s Contract

Coming into the 2014 season, many fans placed backup quarterback as the top priority of the offseason.  It’s easy to see why, the Packers were a drastically different (i.e. drastically bad) team after Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken clavicle and it was only some late season heroics from “Plan F” Matt Flynn that the Packers even had a chance at a playoff run at the end of the...

Packers LB Jamari Lattimore Officially Signs His Restricted Tender

  Packers ILB Jamari Lattimore officially signed his restricted tender on Wednesday, according to the NFL transactions release. Green Bay placed the low tender of $1.431 million on Lattimore back in March.

Poll: Jolly Most Likely To Return

Last week’s poll question asked which free agent is most likely to be re-signed by Green Bay. Hundreds of you voted and the runaway choice was defensive lineman Johnny Jolly. That makes sense since the Packers are still lacking size at end and the 31-year-old performed fairly well last season. Of course, Jolly’s health will […]

Packers: Could Green Bay Target QB Tom Savage in 2014 NFL Draft?

The Green Bay Packers are one of the teams fortunate enough not to need a franchise quarterback from the 2014 NFL Draft — they already have their franchise quarterback in Aaron Rodgers, one of the game’s truly elite players. However, that doesn’t mean Green Bay isn’t looking for a little help at the position. Ever since last season’s fiasco, when Rodgers was lost for nearly...

NFL: Is the League Right to Challenge World Series with Packers-Saints in Week 8?

In case you don’t already know, the Packers Week 8 Sunday night game in New Orleans has come into some controversy, as it happens to be scheduled on the same night as the fourth game on the 2014 World Series. Before 2010, the NFL refrained from this kind of stuff, respecting that people shouldn’t have to pick between Baseball’s biggest moment and a can’t-miss Football primetime...

Vince Young attending Browns minicamp for a tryout

Vince Young is a quarterback who, despite playing decent during his career and having a winning record as a starter, has been able to find himself back in a starting role in a couple years.
