Found March 31, 2012 on The Penalty Flag:
Thanks to concept of free agency, there is no off season for the NFL. Free agency has been more than just a little exciting this year, even for Green Bay Packers fans. The Packers may not have joined in “Tebow-Mania”, but they have been unusually active this season. Although GM Ted Thompson prefers to build

Packers Need To Replace McKenzie

McCloughan spent six years with the Packers in the 90s Reggie McKenzie worked under Ted Thompson for seven years, but he obviously doesn’t adhere to his former boss’ philosophy of saying as little as possible when it comes to dealing with the media. Oakland’s new general manager hasn’t shut his mouth since being hired away from the Packers 10 weeks ago. And now his public...

Thompson working to upgrade Packers' rush

By BILL HUBER The Green Bay Packers have signed free-agent defensive end Anthony Hargrove, and general manager Ted Thompson might not be done. As of Thursday afternoon, another free-agent defender, Dave Tollefson, was en route to Green Bay to meet with the Packers. Tollefson was a seventh-round draft choice by the Packers in 2006 but never played a snap for them...

Mike McCarthy still believes resting players is right way to go

The Green Bay Packers went 15-1 in the regular season last year and, after clinching the top seed in the NFC, sat many of their starters for Week 17′s contest against the Lions.

Free agent tackle will probably be too expensive for Packers The Packers may still be interested in Demetrius Bell, but signing him will be next to impossible. That’s because the Eagles are now in the market for a left tackle to replace Jason Peters (torn Achilles) and they have zeroed in on the talented former Bill. In fact, the four-year veteran from Northwestern State (La.)...

Packers And Tollefson May Reunite

The Packers are interested in bringing back a former player There’s no guarantee that Dave Tollefson’s rendezvous with the Packers on Friday will lead to a deal, but I actually think the odds are pretty good. That’s because the six-year veteran seems to fit every criteria GM Ted Thompson looks for in a free agent – he won’t be very expensive, he plays a position of need...

Film Looks Back At Summer Of ’08

New documentary will reopen old wounds for Packers fans It’s hard to believe over four years have passed since Brett Favre announced his “retirement” from the Packers. It seems like only yesterday, but in reality, so much has happened since then. Favre trashed the organization that rescued him from Atlanta and paid him over $100 million. General manager Ted Thompson traded...

Notebook: Emery's work not complete

In free agency, Bears GM Phil Emery has attempted to close the talent gap between Chicago and the Green Bay Packers, but there is still plenty of work left to be done.
