Defensive tackle Johnny Jolly has been out of football for three seasons as he battled legal problems and drug abuse. The Green Bay Packers aren't ready to give up on him.
Coach Mike McCarthy and general manager Ted Thompson both spoke about Jolly on Sunday from the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix. The team recently restructured Jolly's deal, reducing his base salary. That shows a clear willingness to work with Jolly again. But they have to meet with him first.
"He has to come to Green Bay, and there's going to be some meeting," McCarthy said via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "As with any player, you go through a medical process. We'll go through all that. I think it's important to go through all that before we get into how we feel.
"Johnny, I've always considered him one of our guys, and everybody knows what he's been through. It would be great if this opportunity works out. But as an organization, we have a responsibility to go through the process."

Aaron Rodgers is not paid like one of the NFLs best quarterbacks. The Green Bay Packers want to put an end to that.
The 2011 NFL Most Valuable Player has two years left on a contract that Rodgers agreed to with the Packers in 2008 when he was midway through his first season as Green Bays starting quarterback.
Rather than having Rodgers, 29, play out those final two years at a rate...

FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
DuJuan Harris broke out late in 2012 and hadn’t even taken a carry till the week 14 game against my beloved Lions, but that is when the fantasy world started paying attention. In his first game he carried the ball 7 times for 31 yards and a TD...
Just when you think the world is totally filled with horrible human beings, you get reminded that there are so many strong, inspirational people mixed in. Thanks to the MACC Fund and Aaron Rodgers for shining a greater light on the horribleness that is childhood cancer and blood disorders.
Watch as Aaron travels to surprise three survivors. This totally made my day.

Through Jennings, the Packers have been...

Packers WR Randall Cobb will return as a top playmaker in 2013.
The injury bug bit the position hard, but players continually stepped up and the offense didn’t miss a beat. James Jones has had his fair share of struggles with dropped passes, but he had the best season of his career in 2013, leading the league with 14 touchdown catches. Randall Cobb also had a breakout season, due...

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- LeRoy Butler has no idea why he still hasn't been offered a coaching job in the NFL. It's not for a lack of desire or interest. It's not for a lack of knowledge about the league that he spent more than a decade in while winning a Super Bowl and being named to four Pro Bowls.So, then what exactly is keeping the former Green Bay Packers star safety from...
