In the shadow of the last two postseason losses, I’ve seen a number of Green Bay Packers fans itching for Ted Thompson to make some big roster moves. Their basic premise is that star quarterback Aaron Rodgers doesn’t have much time left to get to another Super Bowl. It’s either now or never if the team wants to make another serious run at it.
Rodgers is, after all, turning 30 this December. By the time the season is over and the playoffs are underway, he’ll have reached that magic age in the NFL when a player’s value suddenly drops like a brand new car being driven off the dealer’s lot. Sure, he hasn’t shown any physical or mental signs of decline in his performance, but time flies when you’re chasing the Lombardi Trophy.
To be perfectly clear, I have been a big skeptic of this line of thinking. This skepticism has actually led me to do a little data mining. How many quarterbacks have won the Super Bowl after they’ve turned 30? How many have even played in a Super Bowl? Is it a fore...

We mentioned earlier today that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers doesn’t plan on holding out for a new contract.
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the Packers plan on taking care of Rodgers soon.
A league source with knowledge of the situation believes, however, that the Packers soon will take care of Rodgers.
“It is his time,” the source said.
The source also...
According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, even though Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers would love a new contract, he isn’t willing to hold out for one right now.
Sources close to Rodgers describe the quarterback as concerned about his contract situation with the Packers , but he isn’t yet prepared to hold out this offseason or this summer, if a new deal...
Mike Freeman of CBS Sports reports that a source close to Packers QB Aaron Rodgers informed him that he’s “concerned about his contract situation,” but isn’t prepared to holdout in the event that an agreement isn’t reached at some point in the next few months.
“He paid close attention to the money Joe Flacco received,” said the source, “but there’s no anger. He’s...
The ink has barely dried on the record breaking contract that Joe Flacco signed on Monday with the Baltimore Ravens and there is already talk about how this deal will affect the contract Aaron Rodgers eventually signs with the Green Bay Packers.
After a sluggish regular season, Flacco showed he is well worth the 6-year $120 million contract he was rewarded with earlier this week...

Call it a salary cap casualty, Donald Driver, Greg Jennings and Charles Woodson have all left the Green Bay Packers.
Desperate to find cap room to sign Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews and B.J. Raji in the upcoming years they must be diligent in whom they chose to sign.
Clay Matthews is a dominate force as a Pro Bowler, but according to reports could be looking for Mario Williams type...
Quarterbacks around the NFL had to be looking in at the deal that Baltimore Ravens signal caller Joe Flacco received, none more that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers, a reigning Super Bowl MVP himself, and arguably the best quarterback in the NFL currently, is winding down his current contract. He is currently inked through 2014, but the Packers should seriously...
Ready to “soon” obliterate the contract signed by Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, dynamic Green Bay Packers signal caller Aaron Rodgers will “set a new benchmark that will stand for several years.” After thoroughly outplaying Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Colin Kaepernick, and guiding the Ravens to a 34-31 upset victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl...
NFL free agency is not an event in Green Bay. Drama and anticipation don't exist when nearly every offseason concludes with a lack of noteworthy results.
Since Ted Thompson took over as general manager of the Packers in 2005, he has mostly sat back and planned for the draft while many of his peers spend tens of millions of dollars on free agents. That's just not the Ted...
Kicker Michael Barnard had an impressive tryout with the Eagles last May
According to Bob McGinn, the Packers will try out kicker Michael Barnard on Monday. The 27-year-old graduated from Division III Fairleigh Dickinson in 2008, but he hasn’t been able to land a job with an NFL team.
For the first time in years, GM Ted Thompson appears willing to bring a second kicker to camp...
Linebacker Brad Jones is set to become an unrestricted free agent next month
With all the focus on Charles Woodson, Greg Jennings, Jermichael Finley and A.J. Hawk, the future of Brad Jones hasn’t been mentioned much in the past few weeks. That’s an oversight. General manager Ted Thompson should make a concerted effort to re-sign the veteran linebacker before the start of free...
