Packers say improved roster reason for Taylor's release

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- With Ryan Taylor's role drastically declining this season, the Green Bay Packers released the fourth-year player Monday. Taylor, who's listed as a tight end, has been much more of a special teams contributor throughout his career with the Packers. He had just eight catches for 45 yards with one touchdown since being drafted by Green Bay in the seventh round...

The tight end position in Green Bay is the one that both baffles and excites me the most.  I have literally talked myself into 3 different players as the #1 contributor on the team (4 if you include Jermichael Finley).  I truly the believe the position is fascinating.  When you add in the fact that the team’s best special teams contributor, Ryan Taylor, basically has to make...

5 Packer Veterans Who Could be on the Roster Bubble

  During the next couple of months the Packers will have to whittle down their roster from the 90 players they currently have to just 53. The Packers lost a few players to free agency, but they also signed free agents, Julius Peppers and Letroy Guion, selected 9 players in May’s draft, have numerous players coming back from injury, and they also have a penchant for keeping a few...

Next year's Packers free agency class

While the Packers are not done compiling their 2014 roster, it is not too early to start looking at next year's crop of free agents. With over $16 million in cap space to spare, in addition to signing some free agents and allocating some money for rookie deals, the Packers may want to think of extending some of their upcoming free agents rather than risk letting them walk in...

The best tight ends in Packers history

Tight end may be the most difficult position on the offensive side of the ball. You have to have speed, size, agility and good hands. On top of being a receiving threat, a tight end also has to be able to execute blocking assignments like a lineman; be it blocking an end head on or a linebacker downfield. No other position is as demanding which is why there are so few complete tight...

Which top tight end prospect makes sense for the Packers?

The Green Bay Packers will most likely use the 2014 NFL Draft to address their many needs on the defensive side. However, if they do chose to target an offensive position it will be tight end. The Packers future in the tight end position is uncertain with starters Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless both headed for free agency. So, will the Packers be selecting a tight end in this...

How Green Bay shapes up at TE

The tight end position will be one to watch closely for the Green Bay Packers this offseason. In 2013, the injuries to Jermichael Finley forced Green Bay to basically play tight end by commitee. Finley played just six games and caught only 25 passes. Finley’s backup was Andrew Quarless, who played all sixteen games. Both will be free agents entering this offseason. Other tight...

Thanks For Nothing

How little has the 2011 draft class contributed to the Packers this season? Put it this way, fourth-round pick Davon House, who was benched on Sunday, has played the most snaps of the 10 prospects selected by GM Ted Thompson 2 1/2 years ago. Derek Sherrod (1st round) was just activated from the PUP list, Randall Cobb (2nd) has been on IR since the middle of October, Alex Green (3rd...

The NFL’s new safety regulations have caused many defenders to open up their checkbooks this season. On Friday, another player was added to that list.

Tight End Must Be A Priority

As much as the Packers need help at safety, the No. 1 priority for next season has to be finding a tight end. Coach and pseudo offensive coordinator Mike McCarthy relies on that position as much as any play-caller in the league, and without Jermichael Finley, he’s been working with one hand tied behind his back. While Micah Hyde could switch from corner and Sean Richardson has...

Lions LB DeAndre Levy: The NFL is a joke

The Detroit Lions defense is used to digging into their pockets to pay fines issued by the league for their rough and tumble style of play.

Seeing tight end Jermichael Finley, running backs James Starks and Johnathan Franklin as well as linebacker Clay Matthews all exit the game due to injury was excruciating. Adding insult to injury was the fact that NFC North division rivals...
