Who will the Packers target this year in the NFL Draft? (AP)
With news that the Packers are going to lock up Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews, what does the future hold for the rest of the team? What direction will they go in during the draft? And the age old question that every Green Bay Packers fan wants to know, where does Jermichael Finley fit into their plans?
With so much money tied up with Rodgers and Matthews, the Packers won’t be making any big free agent pick-ups anytime soon. They are the team’s two most indispensable players, but they still have numerous other team needs. They still need a workhorse running back, an improved offensive line and a more consistent defense. They haven’t addressed any of those needs this offseason. The only logical move is to use the draft to address these needs, but can they use all their picks to fill the holes?

Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre told Bob Sturm on The Bob and Dan Show and talked about his long time standoff with the Packers organization. Sturm asked Favre if he had any idea of the effect the conflict had on fans — including Sturm, who is a Wisconsin native and admitted he was a big Favre supporter.

The Packers have one of the best QBs in the league. They need to give him a running game and better defense if they want to win another Super Bowl. At this point most teams have made their big moves in free agency. The players remaining are either veterans at the end of their career or role players. Teams are working draft prospects in pro days and nailing down their draft...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith has signed his one-year restricted free-agent tender.
Dietrich-Smith was given the lowest qualifying offer, which carries a value of 1.323 million. Though Green Bay had a right to match any offer to Dietrich-Smith, there would have been no compensation associated with it if another team had successfully signed him...
Aaron Rodgers is reportedly close to a new deal with the Packers and if it ends up being a record setting contract, he’s worth it.
Rodgers, 29, has been the starting quarterback in Green Bay for five seasons and has already won an MVP award, a Super Bowl, and a Super Bowl MVP.
A.J. Hawk, Rodgers’ teammate, talked about his QB recently and had a couple interesting things to say...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Three years ago, Desmond Bishop had an idea for a movie. Still early in his NFL career, the Green Bay Packers' linebacker had no training or writing experience, but Bishop knew this was a story he wanted to tell.
That story idea has now become a legitimate movie script that is currently in the hands of some people at Lions Gate -- the studio that produced ...
Aaron Rodgers impending contract extension is currently the one known unknown in the NFL. Rodgers will get his deal, but no one knows when.
Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk is a fan of his quarterback, and during an interview with NFL AM, said that Rodgers “deserves whatever he gets in his new deal, and it will be a billion dollars.”
Let’s be honest, all of us minions have nothing...
