Grading the Packers 2014 NFL Draft: Khyri Thornton

With draft talk buzzing and April rapidly approaching, it seems like a good time to take a step back and look at last year’s draft for the Green Bay Packers. Ted Thompson, general manager of the Packers, is famous for building his teams through the draft and then keeping his teams together once players are able to sign elsewhere; so for them, the draft is even more important than...

Packers ‘Free Agents’ May Already Be On Board

With Wednesday’s modest signing of “street free agent” safety Kyle Sebetic, who spent a week on the Giants practice squad last November, the Green Bay Packers became the last team in the league to sign a free agent who spent time with another NFL team. Simply put it is not in their DNA to spend wildly on the open market for players who were unsigned and in some cases unwanted...

From The Benches: Talking Offseason with Brian Carriveau

The boys are back to talk Packers offseason with Railbird Central host Brian Carriveau. They begin with a brief rundown of the week’s news before revealing which remaining bargain free agent they’d like to see Ted Thompson sign.

General Manager Ted Thompson wants to keep the Packers forever young

The Green Bay Packers know all too well of what happens when a team is worn down and getting old. Anyone remember when the Packers when Ted Thompson was first hired? There was a reason why he was hired in the first place. At that time Mike Sherman was coach and GM. His team was getting old, players getting injured often as a result of that and not too much depth on the roster, the...

Green Bay Packers Taking A Step Back Defensively?

The Green Bay Packers have been able to keep its fantastic offensive machine so far this offseason, but the same cannot be said for its defense. The Packers lost cornerbacks Tramon Williams and Davon House, who combined with Sam Shields, Casey Hayward and Micah Hyde were the biggest strength of the Green Bay defense. They also have not added any free agents from another team to help...

Green Bay Packers: 3 first round prospects

With the 2015 NFL Draft just around the corner, it is never too early to start looking at projections.  The draft has been where the Green Bay Packers have found success, as most of the players on their roster have only played for the Packers.  While the first round has either been hit or miss since Ted Thompson became the general manager, here are three players that I think would...

When Will it Ever End? Packers Free Agency the Ted Thompson Way

There is a saying regarding NFL Free Agency. I love the quote, although I don’t know its origin. “Teams that ‘win’ in March are rarely ‘winners’ in January”. The system rewards players based on past performance, but mostly perceived future production, by teams who throw serious money their way in an effort to improve and appease the base. Sometimes it works. Remember...

Tentative Ted: Will Thompson’s dilly-dallying at CB cost the Packers?

As Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson sat patiently, presumably waiting for Tramon Williams to return home at a lower price after exploring potentially greener pastures, Williams signed with Cleveland for 3 years and $21 million. Now the Packers are a man short at outside cornerback. Even though Williams turned 32 on Monday, he was coming off one of his better seasons...

Packers Should Kick the Tires on Free Agent ILB Brandon Spikes

The Green Bay Packers generally don’t jump into the first wave of NFL Free Agency, but once things slow down, general manager Ted Thompson starts to take a more active interest in the market. With that in mind, the Packers have some needs that need to be addressed and one of the biggest is at inside linebacker. Now, don’t get wrong, the Packers don’t have a huge hole there...

Cory’s Corner: Greg Hardy is risky but will reward Packers

Everyone should agree that the Packers are in a win-now mode. They have the best quarterback in the game and the best tandem of receivers. General manager Ted Thompson has done well so far in free agency by bringing back Randall Cobb and Bryan Bulaga. Those were the team’s two biggest needs. So what’s next? What’s the next piece that can not only help the Packers but put them...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Fab Five 3.0?

2007 was a true renaissance season for the Green Bay Packers.  The Packers were entering the second season of the Mike McCarthy era, with few people have ultimate confidence in the new head coach.  After all, McCarthy had been hired away from San Francisco, where he was the offensive coordinator for an offense that wasn’t very good.  The Packers had started 4-8 in 2006, but...

Cory’s Corner: Vanilla Ted Thompson wins frenetic free agency

This NFL free agency period has been about as active as a coy pond at feeding time. Many teams have been willing to throw life-saving manna at players in the hope that they can spark change. But Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson hasn’t taken any risks. More importantly, he hasn’t reached for anyone. Don’t tell that to the Dolphins. Miami gave NFL badboy Ndamukong Suh...

What was Ted Thinking? Packers lose Davon House to Jaguars

Davon House wanted the opportunity to be the #1 cornerback on a team, and of course, the eventual payday that will come with it. Looks like he’ll be getting that opportunity with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he didn’t do poorly in the money department, either. House, who has a total of 14 career starts for the Packers in four years, will reportedly be accepting a four year...

Unlikely, but realistic, Packers free agent targets

There is no way to predict what, if anything, Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson will do in NFL free agency. But it sure is fun to talk about it. Here are five free agents that Thompson probably won’t sign, but it wouldn’t be shocking if he did. All of these players would probably fall into the Packers’ price range and would address some type of need. WR Andre JohnsonLast...

The Calm Before the Free Agent Storm

Once again, the NFL’s franchise tag deadline has come and gone for the Green Bay Packers. As a result, they will need to work hard this week to sign their free agents before Friday’s open negotiating period begins at 4:00pm ET. This negotiating period lasts for three days and allows NFL teams to begin talking to all available free agents. It’s not a huge surprise that Ted Thompson...

Green Bay Packers Free Agency ILB Options

Last week, I focused on how the draft inside linebackers struggled at the NFL Combine. Since, A.J. Hawk was finally released, which leaves the Packers extremely thin at the position with Sam Barrington being the only one who you could see starting. That assumes of course Clay Matthews moves back to the edge. After releasing Hawk and Brad Jones, the Packers have over $30 million in...
