Found November 24, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Rob Demovsky of believes the Green Bay Packers may end up moving on from veteran cornerback Tramon Williams after ths season. The one-time Pro Bowl cornerback will turn 31 on March 16 and is scheduled to make $7.5 million next season in salary ($6.9 million) and bonuses ($600,000), making him the highest-paid player currently under contract for next season on the Packers’ defense. That’s an age and a pay range that make him vulnerable in general manager Ted Thompson’s way of doing business. Demovsky did point out that Williams played a great game last week against the Giants. Without the injured Sam Shields, who this season overtook Williams as the team’s designated shut-down cornerback, Williams played what one high-level NFL personnel man said was “the best game of his career.” Williams, in his seventh NFL season, made eight tackles (all solo stops, including two for losses) and intercepted his first pass of the season in last Sunday’s 27-13 loss to the Giants. It was a performance reminiscent of late in the 2010 season, when Williams was one of the key components on the Super Bowl XLV team. This doesn’t mean Williams will be back in 2014 though. Yet Williams’ future in Green Bay might still be in doubt. Shields will be a free agent after this season, and while no progress has been made on a long-term deal, the Packers likely have him high on their list of priorities to re-sign. If Williams isn’t open to a pay cut, he could be released. The only way Williams does have a chance at returning is if he continues to play well the rest of the season.   Need NFL Tickets? Loading...

Packers CB Tramon Williams Could Be On The Chopping Block This Offseason

According to Rob Demovsky of, CB Tramon Williams “fits the profile of the kind of player the Green Bay Packers might part ways with after the season.“ Williams, 31 in March, hasn’t been playing at as high of level as was just a few years ago, which could be attributed to lingering effects from injuries he has suffered in the last few seasons. Against the Giants...

McCarthy not happy after Packers, Vikings tie: ‘You expect to win’

Backup quarterback Matt Flynn helped the Green Bay Packers storm back from a 16-point deficit for a 26-26 tie against the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers and Vikings could only make field goals in overtime Sunday. Mason Crosby hit from 20 yards and Blair Walsh connected from 35 in the extra period.

Cold Green Bay weather irritated Eddie Lacy’s asthma

    Packers running back Eddie Lacy told reporters that he didn’t briefly leave Sunday’s game against the Vikings with an injury.  Instead, the cold weather irritated his asthma. Why did Packers RB Eddie Lacy have to go to the locker room at the end of regulation? "Asthma. It wasn't an injury." Affected by the cold. — Mike Clemens...

Some players on the Packers were expecting a second overtime

Yes this happened again. Back in 2008,  Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb thought there was a second overtime after the first overtime ran out without anyone scoring during a regular season game against the Bengals. According to Robert Klemko of,  some players from the Packers were expecting another overtime after their first overtime ended in a tie with the Vikings. This...

Eddie Lacy says asthma slowed him down Sunday

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy says asthma forced him to leave Sunday’s 26-26 overtime tie against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field. “It’s worse in the winter time,” Lacy said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I’ve had it since I was little. Sometimes it’s worse than others.” Lacy carried the ball 25 times for 110 yards and a touchdown before...

Report: Packers hopeful Rodgers will play on Thanksgiving

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports via Rotoworld, the Packers are “holding out hope” Aaron Rodgers will be able to play against the Lions in Thanksgiving. The Packers’ medical staff and doctors will reevaluate Rodgers Monday to see where his fractured collarbone is at. Given the short week, owners shouldn’t be overly optimistic. Rodgers previously said that he would...

Tie with Vikings leaves Packers with empty feeling

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Down by 16 points early in the fourth quarter, the Green Bay Packers had almost no shot at beating the Minnesota Vikings. Their win probability was calculated at three percent, yet the Packers tied the game late in regulation and forced overtime. Fifteen extra minutes of football produced a field goal for both teams, as the Packers finished with their first tie...

Video: Scott Tolzien introduces his spin move to the Vikings

Green Bay Packers quarterback Scott Tolzien pulled off a nasty spin move on the Vikings for a touchdown. Here's video of him fooling the defenders.


Technically I think I am wrong.  I believe that there are certainly scenarios in which the Packers could lose the game on Sunday and still make the playoffs at 10-6 provided that they win out.  I don’t think that is going to happen.  I really think that Green Bay needs to handle business on Sunday or the season is over.  I understand that Aaron Rodgers could play on thanksgiving...

Multiple Packers Thought There Would Be a 2nd OT

Donovan McNabb would be proud, he isn’t the only player to think that NFL games couldn’t end in a tie. This is nothing new but still hard to believe: I heard multiple Packers admit they expected a second overtime, didn't know they could tie. — Robert Klemko (@RobertKlemko) November 24, 2013 The main offender was Packers tight end Andrew Quarless according to Larry Brown...

The Green Bay Packers entered Week 12 needing a win to keep pace in the NFC North. A loss would have put them out of contention for a Wild Card berth. They decided to split the difference.
