The speculation that Greg Jennings wouldn’t be returning to the Green Bay Packers started when the season ended for the team. It heated up when he put his Wisconsin-area home on the open market, and now it’s fully engulfed in flames – Jennings won’t be wearing Green and Yellow next season.

Appearing on NFL Network’s Total Access, Jennings all but said he was leaving, and gave an open option for the other 31 teams in the league.
Specifically mentioning the Miami Dolphins, where many have connected the dots, leading to a reunion with head coach Joe Philbin, his former offensive coordinator in Green Bay.
“I wouldn’t mind that at all,” Jennings said. “The weather’s definitely nice. They have an up and coming quarterback.”
Of course, free agency is still a month away, beginning on March 12th, he said he wouldn’t be ruling out any other options.
“It’s one of those situations … its a business,” He said, following with “All other 31 teams are an option.”
While he says that there are 31 other spots, he didn’t completely rule out re-signing with the Packers, although he sees the writing on the wall. The team has a slew of receivers, some that bloomed into star-playmakers this past season.
With the retirement of Donald Driver, the team is down a receiver, but with a deep depth chart full of starting-caliber wideouts his services are likely not going to be needed moving forward.
Many have him penciled in to join the ‘Fins in March, but anything can happen – he definitely didn’t count anyone out.

The Green Bay Packers never stood a chance in signing free agent Greg Jennings and already told the seven-year veteran that they wouldn’t be among the teams pursuing him. Jordy Nelson, James Jones and the emergence of Randall Cobb have the Packers set for 2013, but why didn’t they at least shop Greg Jennings before the NFL trade deadline or at the start of the season?

Despite flourishing in 2012, the Green Bay Packers are considering releasing inside linebacker A.J. Hawk to save $5.45 million in cap space. Green Bay, who went 11-5 and won the AFC North, reportedly has little chance to retain both the … Continue reading →
Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette writes that the Packers could end up tripling their cap space in the next few weeks as GM Ted Thompson decides what to do with some of their veteran players.
Dougherty writes that there’s actually a chance that the Packers may elect to part ways with S Charles Woodson, which in turn would create $10 million cap space. On top of that...
Defensive lineman C.J. Wilson was a steal in the seventh round of the draft
They (whoever “they” are) say it takes three years to fairly judge an NFL draft. By that way of thinking, it’s now OK to look back and judge the class of 2010. GM Ted Thompson selected seven players that April. Nearly three years later, all seven remain with the Packers – each enjoying varying degrees...

Donald Driver is on fire. He just was on Good Morning America this week and Katie Couric as well.
So we were going to hire him to speak at one of our losersbracket.com corporate parties. Damn interns always get so drunk and horny at these things. It’s down right embarrassing!
So we got a hold of his agent and asked what he would cost to come to visit us at the lb.com headquarters...
