Packers' Boykin making noise with his play

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Jarrett Boykin was talking about his least favorite topic: Jarrett Boykin. At a position known for its attention-loving players, there's only one reason the Green Bay Packers' third-year wide receiver had even agreed to an interview. ''You get fined for not doing them,'' he said with a slight smirk. It's not that Boykin is anti-social...

Jarrett Boykin is Fighting to be Green Bay Packers’ Third Wide Receiver

Jarrett Boykin got off to a bit of a slow start in training camp for the Green Bay Packers but as camp has progressed his game has picked up and he is starting to look more and more like the promising player that he was down the stretch last season when he caught 49 passes for 681 yards and three touchdowns.

Green Bay Packers Fantasy Football Outlook

Aaron Rodgers played in just 9 games for the Green Bay Packers last season, well really just 8. On Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears, Rodgers attempted just 2 passes before being removed from the game. But even with Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien under center for half the season, rookie Eddie Lacy still managed to rush for over 1100 yards, scoring 11 TDs, and Jordy...

VIDEO: Davante Adams makes spectacular one-handed grab

The last thing that the other 31 NFL teams need is Aaron Rodgers with another talented target at wide receiver.

Rookie wide receiver Davanta Adams has been very impressive thus far at Packers training camp, and yesterday...

When looking at the Falcons’ 2014 roster, there are a few glaring holes that the team wasn’t able to fill during the offseason. Atlanta never acquired a true edge rusher or a pass-catching tight end, among other things. The Falcons are no strangers to completing offseason trades to bolster their roster; Tony Gonzalez, Asante Samuel, and Dominique Foxworth were all acquired via...

In eight seasons as the Packers head coach, Mike McCarthy has an 82-45-1 record and a 6-5 playoff record. He has five double-digit win seasons. Mike McCarthy has been called a lot of things by a lot of people. Some may not like his play-calling, while others may not prefer his player development.

Five undrafted free agents to watch at Packers training camp

“Homegrown” talent. It’s a phrase that gets thrown around often in the world of sports in terms of how to build a sustainable contender. In the NBA, the San Antonio Spurs are the case in point of this philosophy with their nucleus of life-timers Tony Parker, Manu Ginobli and Tim Duncan. In MLB, the Oakland A’s are often cited as the prime example, thanks to general manager...

Is Jarrett Boykin A Replacement Player?

Jarrett Boykin Wide receivers are known as the “shiny hood ornament” of the NFL because largely their production is tied to their quarterbacks; even a wide receiver like Larry Fitzgerald or Andre Johnson have had abysmal seasons with ineffectual quarterbacks behind center.  Furthermore, great/good wide receivers have left for greener pastures in free agency only to be met with...

Training camp preview: Wide receivers

It’s time to take a look at the Packers wide receivers as we near the start of training camp. While there are three receivers who are sure fire locks to make the team, the Packers made quite a few acquisitions this offseason and carry over some promising pass catchers from last year that will make the battle for the roster at the position pretty heated.

Packers want to speed up offense

The faster the better. That's what Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy has planned for his offense this season. And why not, especially with Aaron Rodgers on board with the idea? McCarthy and his quarterback have one primary goal in mind for 2014: Run 75 plays per game. Do that, and everything else -- big numbers for Randall Cobb, Jordy Nelson, Jarrett Boykin and possibly...
