PACKERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Will Geronimo Allison Prove to be a Fluke?

Can Geronimo Allison duplicate his success in 2017? The Green Bay Packers face a lot of questions this offseason, such as who will they sign, who will they let go and who will they draft? But while those questions are important, some of the most difficult questions that need answering have to do with player development. And one of the questions I found myself asking recently is...

Why the Packers Must Re-Sign Nick Perry

In 2016, the struggle of the Green Bay Packers’ defensive secondary illustrated the importance of solid veteran players to the success of an NFL team. After Sam Shields went down with a season-ending injury, the Packers were left with a smattering of young, inexperienced cornerbacks. Those young players could not alone carry the weight of their collective responsibility, and the...

Aaron Rodgers calls out NFL for ‘fake news’ with his 40-yard dash time

Every official and unofficial stat sheet you can find from the 2005 NFL Combine indicates Aaron Rodgers ran the 40-yard dash in 4.71 seconds, but for some reason the Green Bay Packers quarterback does not remember it that way.Earlier this week, the NFL’s official Twitter account shared a throwback photo of Rodgers running the 40-yard dash before he was drafted.

Former Packers Pipe Dream in a Pinch Again

It’s obviously the Packers’ offseason when a video of Eddie Lacy working out in a pool (or working out, period) is making the rounds. However, some all too familiar news has made rounds about another running back whose stint in Green Bay played a role in opening the door for Lacy. That former running back would be Cedric Benson, who was arrested for DUI in Texas this past weekend...

The Five Best Undrafted Finds in the Ted Thompson era

In continuation of the "Five Biggest Busts in the Ted Thompson era" piece published on Cheesehead TV earlier in the week, it's only right that the Packers general manager is justified with other areas he excels in. Thompson has drafted well throughout his tenure in Green Bay, and just like any general manager for any of the other 31 teams, he has also drafted busts. But one area...

Packers Could Use Two Cooks In The Kitchen

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy loves tight ends more than Ted Thompson loves players from the Pac-12. Most seasons McCarthy encourages Thompson to carry four on the 53-man roster. McCarthy, a former tight end at Baker University in Kansas, considers it one of the most important and versatile positions on the team. With these things in mind, it is shocking that the Packers...

Why would Kirk Cousins want to stay with the inept Washington Redskins?

Kirk Cousins may not be the most mobile quarterback in the NFL but it's time for him to use his feet and run. Run, Kirk; run all the way out of Washington, as far as you can from the dysfunctional, inept front office that's underestimated you for four seasons and perpetually keeps the Redskins a laughingstock both on and off the field. Go to San Francisco to play with your first...

Five Packers Poised to Rebound from Tough 2016 Seasons

The Green Bay Packers may have fallen short of a Super Bowl, but they still had an impressive, entertaining run to the NFC Championship Game. That being said, certain aspects of the team certainly emerged as more problematic in the 2016 season. The offense struggled early, but its bounce back played a major role in Green Bay even making the playoffs. The defense, on the other hand...

Eddie Lacy is Staying Lean This Offseason With Healthy Food and Pool Sprints

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy had another disappointing season in 2016. Due to a broken ankle, the 26-year-old played in only five games, accumulating 360 rushing yards and scoring no touchdowns. During the 2015 season, Lacy gained serious weight, which led to his worst full year in the league. But Lacy is trying to make 2017 his year—by staying lean this offseason...

Three defenders the Green Bay Packers should sign this offseason

The Green Bay Packers are in a bit of trouble this offseason because their defense failed them once again in a big game. This isn’t the first time it has happened to this team, and it won’t be the last time unless the Packers become active in free agency and reinforce their defense with some playmakers. There are plenty of defenders the Packers could sign, but they should focus...

Positional Analysis: Tight End

This is the fourth of a 15-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starter (B-): Jared Cook finished the season strongly, but let’s keep things in perspective. The soon-to-be 30-year-old dropped four passes in the playoffs, did very little after the catch and was a pedestrian blocker. That said, he was also the best tight end to play for the Packers since...

Packers Shouldn’t Give Up on Datone Jones

As the NFL moves into the offseason, teams have decisions to make about who to re-sign and who to let walk. Sometimes they can control who leaves and sometimes they can’t, As far as the Green Bay Packers are concerned, they have a number of difficult decisions to make. But to me, one of the easy ones, would be re-signing Datone Jones on a one or two-year prove it deal. Certainly...

Eddie Lacy a fit for Patriots?

Eddie Lacy is likely going to have to sign a one-year deal if and when he hits free agency next month, and there is no guarantee he is going to get it from the Green Bay Packers. The former Alabama star will need to prove he can resurrect his career in the wake of injuries and weight concerns, and what better team to do that with than the New England Patriots?Gregg Rosenthal of NFL...

Packers Trade Rumors: Will Eagles’ Connor Barwin be released or traded?

Would a trade make sense for the Packers and a productive 3-4 pass rusher? Or should the team wait it out and see if he becomes available as a free agent? The Green Bay Packers have three outside linebackers currently under contract for 2017. One is coming off an underwhelming rookie season (Kyler Fackrell), another — Clay Matthews — has played better and stayed healthier when...

Green Bay Packers: Remembering James Starks and Sam Shields

Over the course of the past week, the Green Bay Packers decided to part ways with two of their veteran players, running back James Starks and cornerback Sam Shields.

As if the game of football wasn’t violent enough, Taylor Lewan thinks the NFL should allow fighting.The Tennessee Titans offensive tackle said in a tweet Thursday that the league should “let us fight” during games, much like the NHL allows its players to do.
