He’s the youngest NFL offensive lineman to be his team’s new leader, but the 6-foot-3, 318-pound Josh Sitton is just that.
Sitton was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 4th round of the 2008 NFL Draft.
He will be the oldest player on one of the league's youngest units.
The 27-year-old Sitton enters the 2013 season as the Packers’ most experienced offensive lineman, a position with an average age of 23.8 years.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Matthew Mulligan understands his role. Now with his fifth NFL team after signing with the Green Bay Packers this offseason, the 28-year-old tight end doesn't expect to make highlight-reel catches or have many Lambeau Leap-type moments.
Mulligan isn't bothered by a lack of recognition from casual football fans. He embraces it. As long as he's on the...
TMZ was trying to catch up with Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers while he was out on the town. Unfortunately for them he didn’t have much to say.
The one thing Rodgers did say to the reporter is, ”at some point you’re going to get a real job.”
While I respect and believe TMZ does a pretty good job with reporting news, to have a guy go out and ask Aaron Rodgers what...

Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby has one of the strongest legs in the NFL. He was also one of the most accurate kickers. The key word: was. Last season was no doubt Crosby’s worst season as a pro. He had a career low 63.6 field goal percentage, which was second worst in the league. Aside from his field goal percentage, Crosby also...
Jermichael Finley, honestly, is one of my most hated players. It's weird too, because I'm a Packers fan.Well, it's not weird. The weird thing is, I'm about to tell you why you should put him on your fantasy team.Finley last year was 19th in fantasy points for tight ends. He's the 7th highest-paid tight end in the league. That's not good. He only had two touchdowns...
