That’s what a Chicago Bears fan did after learning that Julius Peppers was heading to Green Bay: Post by Jeremy Atkins. That’s a hot Peppers. /sad […]Continue reading...
BEST OF MAXIM
Julius Peppers is a defensive end in the NFL, and was recently cut by the Chicago Bears, then promptly picked up by division rival Green Bay Packers.A team usually busy hibernating during free agency. Not this year, this year they made a splash in the form of 3 years $30million for an elite albeit aging edge pass rusher to bookend Clay Matthews.My bold prediciton for this year Julius...
Free agent safety Chris Clemons seems like a logical fit for the Packers.
The Packers need a safety. Chris Clemons is a decent safety still on the NFL free agent market. So why haven’t the Packers signed Clemons?
Clemons isn’t a star, but he’d be an immediate upgrade over what the Packers already have. He hasn’t missed a start in two seasons and has 187 tackles, three interceptions...
Eddie Lacy was the Packers’ second-round draft pick last offseason, and Green Bay hoped that he would fix their running back issues.

The next time a player under contract holds out from training camp, preseason or whatever, take a moment before denouncing the malcontent with, “But he’s got a contract!”
And think of Earl Bennett.
Brian Urlacher raised a point a few offseasons ago when he was back-and-forth’ing with the Bears over what would end up being a very nice contract extension, the one that ran...
Devin Hester has been dubbed the “Windy City Flyer” and the “greatest return specialist in NFL history.” He also raced a cheetah for “Nat Geo WILD’s Man v. Cheetah.” But he didn’t have a NFL team since the Bears parted ways with him exactly two weeks ago. It was thought that he would land with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and he reunited with his former Coach on the...

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Packers have formally announced the re-signing of backup running back James Starks, keeping their formidable backfield intact.
Devin Hester has signed a three-year deal with the Atlanta Falcons.
When Hester first joined the NFL he did so as a defensive back, he excelled on special teams and eventually the Chicago Bears moved him to wide receiver hoping that an increase in his touches would result in more points. With former Bears coach Lovie Smith gone, Hester operated only as a return man last...
