Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels says Julius Peppers is still a “freak of nature.” “Charles Woodson played pretty well at 34,” Daniels Daniels told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “Julius Peppers is by every means of the word a ‘freak of nature.’ I don’t think age is going to affect him too much. And he’s got some pretty good players lined up with him. Our front seven is very good. When you add the element of Julius Peppers to that. The sky’s the limit in my opinion.” The 34-year-old Peppers signed a three-year deal worth $30 million with the Packers this offseason. “When you’ve got Peppers, it’s hard to ignore him,” Daniels said. “I don’t know if you’ve had the opportunity to see him, to get on the field after a game or something. Oh my God. Wait until you see him in person when he comes in the locker room. It might scare you. “That’s

Is Jarrett Boykin ready to breakout for the Packers?

The Green Bay Packers allowed one of their biggest wide receiver names to walk in free agency this offseason. James Jones had been one of the more consistent performers for Green Bay, but the Packers feel comfortable with a young replacement in Jarrett Boykin. Can Boykin handle the load that Jones has been baring recently as the third receiving for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers...

Will the Packers add depth via the draft at inside linebacker?

Last week I talked about how the Packers simply can’t be deep enough at the linebacking position. Clay Matthews has been injury prone the last few seasons, and this past season especially it was as if being a linebacker meant being hurt for at least two games unless your name is A.J. Hawk. The Packers have added some key defensive personnel so far this offseason, but the inside...

Packers defensive coordinator calls Julius Peppers a “FREAK OF NATURE”

Julius Peppers has always been a freak of nature, but his coaches feel he still has it. “Charles Woodson played pretty well at 34,” Daniels said. “Julius Peppers is by every means of the word a ‘freak of nature.’ I don’t think age is going to affect him too much. And he’s got some pretty good […] The post Packers defensive coordinator calls Julius Peppers a “FREAK...

Green Bay Packers are hosting both Brandon Dixon and Jeremy Butler today

Today the Green Bay Packers have two small school prospects in town for a pre draft visit according to our sources.  Jeremy Butler the former Tennessee-Martin wide receiver and Brandon Dixon the standout MIAA cornerback from Northwest Missouri State, were both in Green Bay. Jeremy Butler was a JUCO All American before transferring to Louisiana […] The post Green Bay Packers are...

Cory’s Corner: Aaron Rodgers equals a capable Jarrett Boykin

The equation was proven when Greg Jennings left for Minnesota. And it’s going to be proven again when James Jones suits up for Oakland for the first time. Jarrett Boykin will be slotted into the coveted No. 3 wide receiver next season. He’s ready because of one person. I’ve heard many say that Jarrett Boykin is a question mark and cannot be counted on to truly be a No. 3 wideout...

Packers 2014 Draft: 5 Projected First-Rounders That’d Fit Perfectly in Green Bay

With the NFL Draft right around the corner, it seemed like a perfect time for the Packers Guru to shift away from free agency and the NFL offseason to focus on the draft. So in the first of many posts to come on the Packers regarding the 2014 NFL Draft, today I am kicking things off by breaking down five first-round possibilities for the Packers. These five players are all projected...

CB Casey Hayward: We just have to keep each other accountable and not take a backburner to the offense

The theme in Green Bay this offseason has been quite loud and straight to the point, the defense needs to get better. Coach Mike McCarthy has gotten more involved in the planning, defensive coordinator Dom Capers is working on new schemes, and the players are tired of hearing that everything lives or dies with the offense. CB Casey Hayward is excited for the offseason programs...

A.J. Hawk moonlights as a minister

He's no Reggie White but A.J. Hawk recently presided over the wedding of one of the Packers' athletic trainers. While Hawk is best known for being a reliable linebacker (if not a very flashy one), he's also a minister who knows how to perform wedding ceremonies, like the one he did for Nate Weir: “Nate couldn’t get enough of Green Bay,” cracked A.J...

Ted Thompson Must Not Care Much About the Center Position

Packers Center J.C. Tretter It seemed to me to be a no-brainer. The Packers have no one on their roster with more than minimal NFL experience as  a center.  Before yesterday, there were 19 players on the NFL Free Agent Tracker listed at the center position. Surely Ted would be looking to bring in an inexpensive player with real experience at center in case the JC Tretter conversion...

Casey Hayward is training hard for the offseason

Casey Hayward's 2013 season didn't go as planned. After suffering a hamstring injury in training camp, and subsequently re-aggravating it twice over the regular season, Hayward was only able to log three games in 2013. It was a huge setback for one of the league's most promising cornerbacks. Now, six months later, Hayward is starting to feel like he did before...

Bills to play Packers on Monday night in 2014?

It seems the Bills taking on the Lions on Thanksgiving isn’t the only news regarding the 2014 NFL schedule to leak out.

McCarthy, Capers balance their visions for Packers defense

In the history of the National Football League, there have been dysfunctional relationships between a head coach and his assistants. Chicago head coach Mike Ditka and defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan come to mind. They nearly came to blows during halftime of a game against Miami. New Orleans head coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams qualify. They kept their...
