NICK PERRY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Packers former first-round pick Perry says he still has 'bright future'

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Nick Perry's NFL career has not gotten off to the start that he wanted. Two years after the Green Bay Packers made him their first-round pick, Perry has been defined more by the injuries that have set him back than anything positive that's happened on the field. Missing the entire offseason program (including minicamp) and the first four training camp practices...

Green Bay Packers have a workout set for an freaky athletic DT

Next week the Green Bay Packers are scheduled to work out DT Semisi Tokolahi (6-3, 341, 5.25). Semisi was a part-time starter, Tokolahi has the size and speed to make a scout fall in love. Last year scouts fell in love with him. He is a freak of nature for a big guy. It will […]

Green Bay Packers Need Nick Perry To Take the Next Step in 2013

Nick Perry has all the attributes you could want for an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense. He’s listed at 6-3, 274 pounds and runs the forty-yard-dash in 4.63 seconds, has pass-rush ability and is strong enough to hold the point of attack against the run. Athletically, Perry is rare. Men of his size and stature are not normally blessed with his kind of athleticism. Those attributes...

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...

Packers counting on Perry for pass rush

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Don't call Nick Perry the savior of the Green Bay Packers' defense. Dismissing that notion during rookie minicamp, the first-round pick out of USC does not want to approach his upcoming first NFL season with such high expectations. But even if Perry did want to put that type of pressure on himself, there would be a lot of potential obstacles standing in...
