It has been weeks and the Green Bay Packers still have yet to announced long-term extensions for two of the team’s best players – linebacker Clay Matthews and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel believes that the team, which very well may have already agreed to deals with the two superstars, were merely waiting until the players were in town next before signing the new papers. The Packers did report Monday for an offseason conditioning program. Silverstein mentions that the parameters of Matthew’s next contract were believed to have been agreed upon at this year’s NFL Combine. Ian Rapoport also believes the Packers and Clay Matthews are “real close” to an extension. The Packers have $17.45 million in salary cap space and are just one of two NFL teams this offseason to not sign another team’s unrestricted free agent. Their offseason additions have been few and far between. It’s believed Green Bay is willing to save most of that space for the...

Report: Packers, Sam Shields talking about a long-term deal

According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Green Bay Packers and cornerback Sam Shields are talking about getting a long-term done.

Compensation picks key part of the Packers player acquisition process

GM Ted Thompson likes to 'window shop' during free agency. The level headed talent evaluator likes to retain his own talent rather than pay for an unknown entity. In keeping with that mode of operation, he also is adept at letting a player go a year too soon, rather than a year too late. One facet that often gets overlooked is receiving compensation picks for quality...

Ex-Packers QB Brohm signs with CFL team
