1) Introduction: Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden came into the 2012 training camp with slim odds of staying on the roster. The team had just drafted Nick Perry with their first round pick and Perry would surely get every opportunity to start opposite Clay Matthews. The team also saw undrafted rookie Dezman Moses emerge durin camp and it looked lik Walden was all but out the door. When it became apparent that the Packers would need some depth as Perry developed, they decided to hang onto Walden. When Perry went down early in the season and Moses wasn’t quite ready to be an every-down player, Walden became the starter at LOLB as he had been in 2011.

1) Introduction: Everyone knows the story of A.J. Hawk, because it’s how people have measured his reputation and performance. As the fifth overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, Hawk was supposed to be more than he has been. Being “assignment sure” has become more of a condemnation of his skills than an emblem of solid play. Still, Hawk has been the consistent force...
Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers reunited on a public stage for the first time since Favre retired following the 2010 NFL season.

In the years since Brett Favre moved on from Green Bay and eventually retired (with pit stops in New York and Minnesota), it’s been discovered that the relationship between the legendary quarterback and his successor, Aaron Rodgers, was bristly at best.
That’s surely why the NFL put the two former MVPs together to present the AP Comeback Player of the Year award at the NFL Honors...

Greg Jennings is preparing for free agency this off-season. The almost 30-year old wide receiver has spent his whole career in Green Bay but when news broke that he put his home up for sale, many are assuming his time is up with the Packers.
If it is, the time comes for Jennings to decide where he will want to play next. And at least one destination makes a lot of sense.
You may remember that Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers didn’t end well. There was that whole Aaron Rodgers is the guy-taking-your-job / don’t-let-the-door-hit-you-in-the-ass-on the-way-out / what-do-you-mean-you-aren’t-retiring thing. Saturday, the two former teammates were on stage to present the NFL Comeback Player of the Year Award. They had banter before...
