1) Introduction: Packers safety M.D. Jennings entered 2012 trying to crack the roster at safety after playing primarily on special teams in his rookie season of 2011. With Charles Woodson moving from cornerback to safety and with the team having drafted rookie Jerron McMillian in April’s draft, Jennings faced some stiff competition for reps at safety. Because of the team’s many sub packages on defense, Jennings did get on the field as early as week one. When Woodson went down midway through the season, Jennings started several games and gained valuable reps at safety.

3) Expectations coming into the season: Jennings was expected to develop and see some reps in the team’s nickel package as well as back up Burnett and Woodson. The team’s hope was that Jennings could push to

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?
Packers G/T T.J. Lang
1) Introduction: Armed with a new four-year contract, T.J. Lang was excellent early in the season. Then he tore a ligament in his elbow in game five and regressed a little bit. Having to fill in at right tackle didn’t help matters, either. Overall, though, Lang had a good season and he’s another player the Packers don’t have to worry about when it comes...
1) Introduction: Packers S Charles Woodson was moved to safety in the team’s base 3-4 defense. A broken collarbone injury at St. Louis on October 21st forced Woodson to miss the rest of the regular season. He did not return until the Packers’ Wild Card matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.
Charles C. Woodson
1) Introduction: Packers safety Jerron McMillian was the second of Green Bay’s two fourth round draft picks in 2012 (133rd overall). When the team lost safety Nick Collins in 2011, it quickly became a position of need for the Packers. Charles Woodson would move back to safety, but the team needed some young talent to infuse for the future. Enter McMillian...
Young Brandon Bostick could be part of a two-headed monster at tight end in 2013
If the Green Bay Packers decide to part ways with tight end Jermichael Finley, the assumption is that GM Ted Thompson would either sign a replacement in free agency or draft one in April. But I’m not so sure about that. I think Finley’s successor, or should I say successors, might already be on the...
Aaron Rodgers appreciates Brett Favre's longevity. He wants to replicate that tenure while playing for the Green Bay Packers. Of course, that will require continued success at a high level and staying healthy. These are two things that don't come easy in the NFL.
According to Garrett Johnston of the Post-Gazette, Rodgers wants to play as long as Favre played...
GREEN BAY, Wis. With Greg Jennings one month away from hitting unrestricted free agency, the market for the 29-year-old wide receiver will be heating up soon.
The closest comparison to help determine Jennings' value is wide receiver Vincent Jackson, who signed a five-year, 55 million contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last offseason. Jackson was 29 at the time and had similar...
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...

Ted Thompson's track record drafting running backs has been underwhelming. With the backfield in flux behind DuJuan Harris, a three-down back who excels in pass protection and receiving would be a major asset.
