According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Greg Jennings may not get the kind of money he’s looking for once he becomes a free agent this offseason.
Greg Jennings is a really fine wide receiver, but he may be in for a little bit of a rude awakening on the free agent market. According to a couple of front office men I spoke with, teams might not be throwing fistfuls of cash at this two-time Pro Bowler. Why not? A couple of reasons. First, they believe Jennings won’t produce as much without Aaron Rodgers throwing to him, and without Mike McCarthy drawing up plays for him. And secondly, he is 29 years old. Jennings would have been much better positioned to make a killing if he became free after his first contract. Teams are hesitant to pay big for other team’s wide receivers in their third contracts.
I understand why teams might be hesitant to pay Jennings, but all it takes is one team that’s will to overpay for a player that’s been as produc...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
While many feel that Jennings is all but out of Green Bay, he would still be a valuable and vital piece of Packers offense
Recently on Twitter, free agent wide receiver Greg Jennings posted a picture of his empty locker with the following note:
“My #packers locker is empty. Reply w/ a caption letting me know if you want it to stay that way or not! #freeagentlife“
I am one who...
Dan Pompei of the National Football Post writes that Packers WR Greg Jennings figures to find a limited market for services once free agency is open for business.
A couple of front office men informed Pompei that there are concerns that Jennings’ production had a lot to do with Aaron Rodgers throwing him the ball and head coach Mike McCarthy designing plays to specifically...
Erik Walden and Clay Matthews – Packers Spys?
I spy… a blitz?
The impetus for writing this post was to determine once and for all, how much actual “spying” of Colin Kaepernick did the Green Bay Packers do and who was involved? On twitter after the game, there was a wide disparity of opinions on this topic. Some bemoaned why the Packers didn’t employ a spy, others claimed...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers will be watching the Super Bowl from home for the second consecutive year, but the Packers' MVP quarterback once again proved that star NFL players can be known for more than just their on-field success.
Rodgers is very involved with the MACC (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer) Fund, frequently participating in many aspects of the foundation...
After winning the Super Bowl in 2010 and winning 15 regular season games in 2011, the Packers entered 2012 as probably the favorite to win it all. After a 2-3 start, that kind of faded away and even though they finished the season 9-2 from that point on, they still never really felt like the type of contender they were supposed to be. They only beat 2 playoff teams in that stretch...
Green Bay Packers guard Josh Sitton has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster. Sitton was an alternate at guard, and he was named to the team on Sunday, replacing San Francisco starting guard Mike Iupati after the 49ers advanced to the Super Bowl.
Sitton has been an alternate in the past, but this is his first Pro Bowl selection. The Packers coaching staff is coaching the NFC squad...
Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee writes that Packers C Jeff Saturday is “likely to retire.”
Saturday, 37, was signed as a stop gap for the Packers after they lost Scott Wells during free agency, but he was ultimately benched in favor of Evan Dietrich-Smith. Green Bay reportedly sees Dietrich-Smith as a long-term option at center, but GM Ted Thompson was seen speaking with Oregon...
The Packers have five restricted free agents, including cornerback Sam Shields and center Evan Dietrich-Smith. Of them, the big financial decision will be with the tender amount for Shields.
Linebacker Erik Walden was one of many mediocre starters for Green Bay
There’s no excuse for how poorly the team performed against the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round of the playoffs, but looking back, it’s hard to be disappointed in the 2012 Green Bay Packers.
If you look objectively at the 24 players (including kickers) who took the majority of snaps at their respective...
We look back at the season with our featured performer, depth chart, unit grade and look ahead to 2013. Clay Matthews had a dominant season, even while missing four games. Even though the other outside linebackers combined for nine sacks, the Packers need someone to emerge as a consistent sidekick.
