Green Bay Packers: How deep is deep?

The shake up in the wide receiving ranks in Green Bay leaves the guys that did a lot of the heavy lifting from last season to do it again this year.  WR James Jones has previously been quoted as believing that the starting trio which, besides himself includes Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson will be capable of putting up over one thousand yards each this year.  With an offensive line...

Packers may have some doubts that Nick Perry can fit in their system

Former USC outside linebacker Nick Perry might just be too big too play OLB in the NFL, but last year, the Green Bay Packers felt he was athletic enough to play the position in their 3-4. He missed a good deal time due to injuries in his rookie season, and the Packers at this time, can't really say whether he's made the transition to be effective in the pro level, reports...

Green Bay Packers Need Nick Perry To Take the Next Step in 2013

Nick Perry has all the attributes you could want for an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. He’s listed at 6-3, 274 pounds and runs the forty-yard-dash in 4.63 seconds, has pass-rush ability and is strong enough to hold the point of attack against the run. Athletically, Perry is rare. Men of his size and stature are not normally blessed with his kind of athleticism. Those attributes...

Packers' Perry eager to prove himself

GREEN BAY, Wis. It wasn't the rookie season that Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Nick Perry hoped for. Injuring his wrist in his NFL regular-season debut and being placed on injured reserve two months later never let the first-round pick display what made him such a valuable prospect. While Perry certainly isn't happy about the first impression he left in 2012, that...

Tramon Williams says his shoulder is better

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers cornerback Tramon Williams says his shoulder is better and he’s ready to take over the leadership void that Charles Woodson has left behind. “We know that when Charles was here, he had that role,” Williams said. “He was the leader of this group. He taught us things. And I’m going to keep that alive — I’m going to...

Green Bay Packers Flashback Sunday: Back On Top of the World

It is almost difficult to remember just how bad the Packers used to be. From the time Vince Lombardi turned the reigns over to Phil Bengston, up until the early ’90s, to say success was limited would be the understatement of understatements. For the most part, the Packers were bad-really bad. Winning seasons were seen as success, and with a total of four between 1968 and 1991,...

RFA Shields Lacks Leverage After Rebound

Sam Shields ranked as one of the top cornerbacks in the league in several categories, including ranking first in receptions allowed per snap. Nonetheless, he didn't get a nibble in restricted free agency. The only card up Shields' sleeve is not showing up, but the Packers have all the power.

“No drop-off” in talent from Packers to Buccaneers

New Bucs tight end Tom Crabtree is familiar with talented players. Coming from Green Bay and being teammates of Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews, Crabtree knows a little bit about players with talent. Speaking to the media on the practice fields at One Buc Place, the block-first but possibly turning pass-catching tight end said the Buccaneers have some of the most talented players...

Rather, Murphy was talking about...
