The Green Bay Packers will host the New Orleans Saints and there is a lot on the line for some players hoping to earn more playing time or a roster spot.

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...

Help Wanted Needed At Tackle

I understand that general manager Ted Thompson picks the best available player, but he needed to make sure the best available player at some point in either of the past two drafts was a tackle. By ignoring that position since 2013, the Packers now find themselves without a legitimate backup to starters David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga. That became painfully obvious the past two weeks...

Bakhtiari Kneeds To Stay Healthy

Based strictly on last season’s performance, David Bakhtiari might not be one of the 20 best players on the Packers. But because of his position, I ranked him as the fourth most important player for 2015. That’s why there’s reason to be at least a little worried when the third-year left tackle misses multiple practices with a knee injury. On Monday, coach Mike McCarthy said...

Five Packers facing a make-or-break season in 2015

The business side of professional football is often brutal. The players who perform well are rewarded with rich contracts, while those who fail to live up to expectations are quickly forgotten. For a franchise to stay above water, dozens of these decisions must be made on a yearly basis. The Green Bay Packers, for one, manage their salary cap exceedingly well. They do not have any...
