My Sports Rumors:
The Green Bay Packers are interested in bringing free agent running back Ryan Grant but not till they let him test the market. His agent, Alan Herman, thinks that a market will setup back for the back but he’s not sure what that will bring for his client.
“He will hit free agency,” Herman said Tuesday. “But they gave us an indication they would like to have him back. I have to sit down with Ryan in the next few days and see what he wants to do. I haven’t talked to him about it yet. I’m sure he’s open to that (returning). On the other hand, being a free agent is enticing.” (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)
Herman said he has heard enough talk in NFL circles that there will be a market for Grant, but where that might be and how much that might yield are things Herman said are to be determined. He said Grant will go into free agency with an eye for the best fit, and undoubtedly money will play some part in it. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)
His agent also says that Grant has interest in rej...

2011 Packers Yearbook: Green Bay Packer Player Most Likely to Have a Breakout Season in 2012:
(Be sure to place your vote in the poll below.)
Adam: Bryan Bulaga. We usually think of a skill player when talking about breakout seasons. That’s not fair to the offensive lineman. Look for Bulaga to take the next step in 2012.
Al: Matt Flynn is probably the correct answer, but there’s...
The Packers decided against franchise-tagging Matt Flynn Monday.
Packers quarterback Matt Flynn will be free to sign with whichever team he so chooses this spring after the NFL’s franchise tag deadline passed at 4:00 p.m. EST Monday without GM Ted Thompson slapping the $14.4 million tender on the 27-year-old backup.
Instead of taking the risk of tagging Flynn and then trading him...
Lighting in a bottle, that’s what NFL teams do during free agency. What a player does in one system doesn’t instantly make them great in another. The hottest quarterback prospect this year outside of Peyton Manning is Matt Flynn from the Green Bay Packers, and teams are betting that he’s more magic than myth.
Matt Flynn is this year’s version of Kevin Kolb, a quarterback...
Miss America finally got her chance to meet one of the NFL's most talented quarterbacks.
When former Miss Wisconsin Laura Kaeppeler was introduced during the nationally-televised Miss America pageant in January, she gave a shout out to the Green Bay Packers and quarterback Aaron Rodgers. After she won the crown and attended the Super Bowl in Indianapolis, fans and reporters...
GREEN BAY, Wis. Now available to the highest bidder: The Green Bay Packers' all-time leading passer, quarterback Matt Flynn.
As the deadline passed at 3 p.m. CST, the Packers opted not to use their franchise tag and Flynn is officially an unrestricted free agent.
With NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers in his prime and coming off his best season, there was no room for Flynn to play in...
Matt Flynn will hit the open market March 13th.
The deadline for franchising players has come and gone without the Packers tagging Matt Flynn. While Ted Thompson may have worked hard to complete a trade that would provide a team with exclusive negotiating rights to Flynn, it appears that Robert Griffin III and Peyton Manning ultimately killed the market for Flynn.
The four most likely...

This season’s dynamic lineup of stars includes Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver, who will perform either the Foxtrot or the Cha Cha for the first time on live national television with his dance partner during the two-hour season premiere of “Dancing with the Stars,” on Monday March 19th — Driver will definitely hold his own. -TO...
STRANGE GAME OF TAG
Among the more notable players not yet franchised by their respective teams is Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn.
The Green Bay Packers led the NFL in passing yards allowed last season. Therefore, they’re going to focus on DBs and and pass-rushers first and foremost in the 2012 NFL draft right? Not so fast my friend. What about a tight end if Jermichael Finley leaves? What about the running back situation?
Then we must consider the fact that Ted Thompson is as much a “value GM” as there...

Brett Favre. Perhaps his greatest strength was his greatest weakness. In a survival of the fittest like tactic from the days of the Wild West, for 20 years Favre brought his gunslinger mentality to various cities throughout the NFL. Sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn’t, but the fact of the matter remains that when Favre
As of the 3 p.m. (Central) deadline, there is no news to report regarding center Scott Wells. What we do know is the Packers decided not to use the franchise tag on quarterback Matt Flynn.
Past drafts are littered with players like former Green Bay Packer defensive tackle Justin Harrell. A slightly undersized and injury prone defensive lineman, the Packers drafted him in the first round in the 2007 draft. Harrell unquestionably had a good deal of talent, but he only played in two games his senior year, raising some serious red flags. In his four years in the NFL Harrell...
