Matthew Mulligan was devastated when he was surprisingly released by St. Louis. That disappointment turned into elation when he was signed by the Packers. Rather than catch passes, Mulligan relishes doing "the dirty work that nobody else wants" to do.
Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers continue to inch closer to burying the hatchet. There has always been a noticeable amount of tension between Favre and Aaron Rodgers since the Packers decided to commit to the former Cal star as their quarterback of the future, but it appears the Ole Gunslinger is even ready [...]
Brett Favre hasn’t just buried the hatchet. He’s dug a hole so deep for said hatchet that it looks like it won’t ever come back.
