Found May 25, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Packers cornerback Tramon Williams says his shoulder is better and he’s ready to take over the leadership void that Charles Woodson has left behind. “We know that when Charles was here, he had that role,” Williams said. “He was the leader of this group. He taught us things. And I’m going to keep that alive — I’m going to keep that alive. I’m going to come out and do the same thing. The younger guys usually come to me for things anyway. So whatever they need, I’m going to try to get those guys up to speed to play” Williams was one of the best corners in the NFL a couple of years ago, but a shoulder injury has hampered him since 2011. With Woodson gone, it will be up to Williams to lead the Packers secondary this coming season. Need NFL Tickets?

Packers may have some doubts that Nick Perry can fit in their system

Former USC outside linebacker Nick Perry might just be too big too play OLB in the NFL, but last year, the Green Bay Packers felt he was athletic enough to play the position in their 3-4. He missed a good deal time due to injuries in his rookie season, and the Packers at this time, can't really say whether he's made the transition to be effective in the pro level, reports...

According to ABC 2 News in Wisconsin, defensive lineman Johnny Jolly can now return to the Green Bay Packers, since he’s completed a court-ordered drug treatment program, which was mandatory before he could continue his NFL career.

Packers' Perry eager to prove himself

GREEN BAY, Wis. It wasn't the rookie season that Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Nick Perry hoped for. Injuring his wrist in his NFL regular-season debut and being placed on injured reserve two months later never let the first-round pick display what made him such a valuable prospect. While Perry certainly isn't happy about the first impression he left in 2012, that...

Green Bay Packers Flashback Sunday: Back On Top of the World

It is almost difficult to remember just how bad the Packers used to be. From the time Vince Lombardi turned the reigns over to Phil Bengston, up until the early ’90s, to say success was limited would be the understatement of understatements. For the most part, the Packers were bad-really bad. Winning seasons were seen as success, and with a total of four between 1968 and 1991,...

In the case of Charles Woodson, Packers learned from their mistake with Driver.

On February 15 the Packers released a longtime veteran who was just as important in the locker room as he was on the field. Without even asking whether or not he would accept a pay cut Charles Woodson was unceremoniously released. Some looked at this move with skepticism citing the fact the Packers did not have an experienced option across from Morgan Burnett at the safety position...

RFA Shields Lacks Leverage After Rebound

Sam Shields ranked as one of the top cornerbacks in the league in several categories, including ranking first in receptions allowed per snap. Nonetheless, he didn't get a nibble in restricted free agency. The only card up Shields' sleeve is not showing up, but the Packers have all the power.

“No drop-off” in talent from Packers to Buccaneers

New Bucs tight end Tom Crabtree is familiar with talented players. Coming from Green Bay and being teammates of Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews, Crabtree knows a little bit about players with talent.
