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 to toughness and attitude.
Born: 09/20/1987, in Royal Oak, MI

NFL Experience: 4 years

3) Expectations coming into the season: Teams don’t hand out four-year extensions to bad players (well, smart teams don’t, anyway). The Packers had high expectations for Lang and, for the most part, Lang proved he was worth his new deal. I’d rather not see Lang moved to tackle ever again, but it’s not like he was a total disaster out there. His flexibility is another asset.

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.
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
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 →
Packers T Bryan Bulaga
1) Introduction: If Bryan Bulaga looked into a crystal ball, what would he see? Would he a season where he finally stays healthy and is solid at right tackle? Would he see a move to left tackle? Would he see himself handing over half of his annual salary to me? It’d be nice if he saw the third scenario, but the first two are more likely.
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...
Packers WR Greg Jennings joined the NFL Network on Wednesday and mentioned that he’s open to anything this offseason.
“All other 31 teams are an option,” Jennings said, via NFL.com
He’s already put his house in Wisconsin on the market so he’s more than prepared to be playing elsewhere next season. The Miami Dolphins have been consistently mentioned as a potential landing...

The speculation that Greg Jennings wouldn’t be returning to the Green Bay Packers started when the season ended for the team. It heated up when he put his Wisconsin-area home on the open market, and now it’s fully engulfed in flames – Jennings won’t be wearing Green and Yellow next season.

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.
