Overview: For as lousy as the Special Teams units have been the past few seasons, the three main players in the group have been solid for the most part. Yes, we’ve now had one horrible season each from Mason Crosby and Tim Masthay, but there’s no reason to panic about either of them. With a shake up of the Special Teams coaches, it will be interesting to see how these units fare...
1) Introduction: Tim Masthay has been the brightest spot in Packers’ punting history since the loss of Jon Ryan. Although, it’s not that hard to improve on what Green Bay used to have in Jeremy Kapinos, Masthay’s predecessor.

Special teams. That’s not the sexiest unit on a football team. When they're doing well, give them a high five or a pat on the back. When they're shanking, run and scream. Sounds about right. Well, the Packers ran, screamed and signed a new punter today.
Cody Mandell was a street free agent yesterday and now, he’s quite possibly the future punter of the Green Bay Packers. Mandell...
Punting was right up there as a major contributor to the Green Bay Packers poor overall Special Teams play this past season.
So it was no great surprise that the Green Bay Packers wasted little time in bringing in completion for incumbent punter Tim Masthay.
The Packers have announced that they have signed street free agent punter Cody Mandell from the University of Alabama.
General manager Ted Thompson is obviously hoping that street free agent punter Cody Mandell has the same effect on Tim Masthay that street free agent kicker Giorgio Tavecchio had on Mason Crosby a few years ago. Crosby, coming off the worst season of his career, was forced to compete with Tavecchio in the summer of 2013. The competition brought out the best in the former Colorado...
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Tim Masthay is ready for a fresh start in the playoffs.
After yearly improvement, the Green Bay Packers' fifth-year punter had his statistics dip for the first time this season - the result of a rough second half after putting up career-best numbers during the first half.
Masthay averaged 44.1 gross and 37.0 net yards per punt on the season, struggling to get...

Each and every offseason brings new competition within each franchise as athletes are fighting for their lives to make one of the 32 teams that make up the NFL. The Packers are no different. Most of the time the competitions that garner the most attention are quarterback battles or position players fighting for the starting job on their team.
Last year for the Packers, however, the...
Last year many were calling for Mason Crosby to be replaced as the Packers place kicker, but after a solid 2013-14 campaign he’s found his way back into the hearts of Packer Nation. Tim Masthay has become a staple on 4th downs for the Packers as well, as the field position battle is so critical in the NFL.
Thinking that the Packers would pick up another kicker or punter, or even...
