The news that came out of DuJuan Harris’ physical on Monday was not good; a fist-sized cyst on his lung was pressing against the organ and would be threatening his overall health if it had not been detected. Then came the good news: the cyst was benign and could be removed in a relatively harmless procedure which was performed the very next day.
Harris waited until Wednesday to make the news public, using social media to announce the issue and its resolution. The whole affair, as it turned out was very good news for Harris, and anyone who cares anything about people in general should be pleased and relieved that the cyst was detected and removed so quickly. Harris should be ready for the opening of training camp, and that is very good news for the Green Bay Packers... Read more

But as Crosby has watched recent signing Giorgio Tavecchio split kicks with him during minicamp and other offseason practices, he...

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...
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...
Most NFL teams feature a “team building” activity on the final day of their mandatory OTA minicamps. At Lambeau Field, rain forced the Green Bay Packers inside, where they decided on a dodge ball tournament for their activity. Eight captains chose their teams, and when the smoke cleared quarterback Aaron Rodgers had gunned his team to the tournament championship.
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...

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...
If Aaron Rodgers can let what happened with Brett Favre go, so should the fans.

Perhaps it may have finally vanished.

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?
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...
