PACKERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rookie QB Brett Hundley continues hot streak during preseason, McCarthy pleased with progress

Without an interception, while his passer rating was 142.4. Hundley's pocket presence has been better than advertised in the exhibition season and will finish with a 7:1 TD-to-INT...

Aaron Rodgers on Brady ruling: ‘It’s a good day for the players’

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers not surprisingly had a favorable opinion of the ruling in the Tom Brady/Deflategate case in which the New England Patriots quarterback’s four-game suspension was nullified by U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman. Rodgers, speaking from the sideline during the Packers’ final preseason tuneup against the New Orleans Saints, told the...

Myles White makes compelling case for playing time with Packers

Myles White is a rarely talked about talent that has sat on the Green Bay Packers’ practice squad for the last two seasons. He is looking to take a big step forward in 2015 and finally earn legitimate regular season playing time. That goal became much more possible when Jordy Nelson went down with a torn ACL, and White is hoping to step in as the number three receiver for Green...

But for players on the fringe of a roster spot, tonight’s contest between Green Bay and New Orleans is as real as it gets. Here are five players whose performance will either keep them on the 53-man roster or relegate them to the practice squad or the street: JARED ABBREDERIS – With only two practices...

Can the Packers Race with Eddie Lacy to the Super Bowl?

Everyone knows that the Green Bay Packers are Aaron Rodgers' team. In a passing league that's only getting pass-happier, the league's best quarterback earns that distinction. But third-year running back Eddie Lacy is primed for his best season yet as a pro, and he could become the biggest factor behind a potentially memorable season in Cheese-landia. The Packers, once again, are...

Packers sticking with Casey Hayward despite progress of rookie cornerbacks

The Green Bay Packers will stick with cornerback Casey Hayward despite his struggles during the preseason and the emergence of rookies Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins, and LaDarius Gunter. "I think Casey can be a really, really good player, and I think he's going to show it," defensive backs coach Joe Whitt said, via ESPN. "I could be wrong, but he's going to have to prove...

Aaron Rodgers doesn't want to play in 2016 Hall of Fame Game

Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre is a virtual lock to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016, but Aaron Rodgers isn’t excited about the prospect of a fifth preseason game. Since Favre will probably be the headliner of the 2016 class, Green Bay could be selected to appear in the exhibition that follows the ceremony. According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, Rodgers and the...

Gerhart’s Quietly Efficient

While all eyes have been focused on Don Barclay’s failings the past two preseason games, another backup offensive lineman has quietly put together a pair of solid performances. Center/guard Garth Gerhart, who played in two games for Green Bay in 2014, is putting up a spirited fight to hold onto his roster spot for another season. It won’t be easy. Expect the Packers to keep 8...

Should the Green Bay Packers make a move at wide receiver?

The Green Bay Packers are already a wide receiver short with the loss of star receiver Jordy Nelson for the season with a torn ACL. Randall Cobb also went down with what looked to be a potential serious injury, but it appears that he will be just fine for Week 1 of the regular season against the Chicago Bears. Now the question for the Packers becomes, should they look into making...

Randall Cobb: ‘I don’t plan on missing a game’

Once Jordy Nelson sustained a season-ending ACL injury, the Green Bay Packers had a serious problem. When Randall Cobb exited the team’s preseason outing last Saturday, the term “worst-case scenario” started to creep into football minds everywhere. However, Cobb’s injury was revealed to be minor, and according to Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the wide receiver isn’t...

Young Bears fan names brain tumor Aaron Rodgers

A friendship that developed between a loyal Green Bay Packers fan and a young devoted Chicago Bears backer has provided the backdrop for an inspiring story about how the youngster used his unfavorable opinion of the Packers, especially Aaron Rodgers, into a motivational tool to help him battle cancer. Miguel Reyes, 14, was diagnosed with stage 3 brain cancer in 2014. He met Peg...

Masthay Could Get Booted

If Tim Masthay has another poor game on Thursday and if the Giants release Steve Weatherford – two big ifs – it wouldn’t be a shock to see the 10-year vet take over as Green Bay’s punter. Masthay struggled at the end of last season and he hasn’t regained his form this summer. The fifth-year pro from Kentucky been given a long leash by the front office and the coaches because...

The families, relationships behind NFL transactions

It was Easter Sunday 2015 that stands out. It was the day I boarded a plane to fly back to Green Bay, the town I knew and loved so well, for the very last time. My heart sank as the plane landed. I went over and over in my mind what was next. It was the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. There was so much unknown, yet we had faith in what was to come. For nine years we called...

Green Bay Packers believe Randall Cobb will be available Week 1

The Green Bay Packers were extremely depressed to hear that Jordy Nelson would miss the entire 2015 NFL season due to a torn ACL. It was a huge blow for an offense that has relied on him for big numbers for a long time. Randall Cobb was more than ready to take over the top receiver role, but went down with an injury of his own on Saturday evening in Green Bay’s preseason game against...

Packers Escape Huge Scare With Randall Cobb

According to ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky, the Green Bay Packers believe wide receiver Randall Cobb has a good chance to play in the Week 1 opener at Chicago after tests confirmed a sprained shoulder. This likely means Cobb only suffered the Grade 1 sprain of the AC joint, although it’s unlikely that the Packers will ever reveal such detailed injury information. Cobb initially feared...

Predicting the First Wave of Packer Cuts

As we get closer to the end of camp, that means that, unfortunately, “The Turk” will come calling for players. And when he tells them that coach wants to see them, they know that their time is up. For the Packers it is no different, except that this year the cuts are much more difficult. The first cut down needs to take place by Tuesday, and the roster has to be down to 75. Currently...

Packers smart to sit Aaron Rodgers for rest of preseason

The Green Bay Packers lost their second-best offensive player, Jordy Nelson, to a torn ACL last week.

Why the NFL’s preseason needs an overhaul

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson is believed to have torn his ACL Sunday in an exhibition game that was of little value to the veteran. There doesn’t seem to be much anyone can do about non-contact injuries, but just about every team spends the preseason trying to manage playing time of key veterans to reduce injury risk. No one loves preseason games. Even the owners—the...
