Packers C Jeff Saturday
1) Introduction: Before the season, I wrote that Jeff Saturday had to stay healthy. The Packers offensive line, blocking for an MVP quarterback and trying to get a no-huddle offense rolling, had no other option at center. Turns out Saturday was over the hill, and the Packers did, in fact, have another option at center.
College: North Carolina
Rookie Year: 1999
NFL Experience: 14 years
Career Stats and more:
3) Expectations coming into the season: Quarterback of the offensive line. Saturday was supposed to be the veteran who plugged a hole left by Scott Wells. Expectations were low for his run blocking, but he was mainly brought in to keep Aaron Rodgers upright.
4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: Saturday struggled all season run blocking. We kind of expected that coming in, but I don’t think many people expected it to be as bad as it was. According to Pro Football Focus, Saturday managed just ...

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?
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...
Packers T Don Barclay
1) Introduction: Everyone’s favorite Packers wrestling jobber went from an afterthought in training camp to an important player down the stretch. Barclay did enough to make the team, then did enough after being forced into the starting lineup to merit a look at starting somewhere on the line next 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.

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...
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.
