PACKERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Aaron Rodgers doesn't want to play in 2016 Hall of Fame Game

Green Bay Packers legend Brett Favre is a virtual lock to be inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016, but Aaron Rodgers isn’t excited about the prospect of a fifth preseason game. Since Favre will probably be the headliner of the 2016 class, Green Bay could be selected to appear in the exhibition that follows the ceremony. According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports, Rodgers and the...

Gerhart’s Quietly Efficient

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...

Should the Green Bay Packers make a move at wide receiver?

The Green Bay Packers are already a wide receiver short with the loss of star receiver Jordy Nelson for the season with a torn ACL. Randall Cobb also went down with what looked to be a potential serious injury, but it appears that he will be just fine for Week 1 of the regular season against the Chicago Bears. Now the question for the Packers becomes, should they look into making...

Mike McCarthy on Packers' preseason: 'You had some good things, some bad things and some ugly things going on'

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy has seen enough of the preseason, and his star players either getting injured or in danger of getting hurt for games that do not matter. McCarthy talked about the progress his team has made and the effect of the many injuries could have on the team. “Every training camp takes a different path. I thought we got off to a good start in New...

Randall Cobb: ‘I don’t plan on missing a game’

Once Jordy Nelson sustained a season-ending ACL injury, the Green Bay Packers had a serious problem. When Randall Cobb exited the team’s preseason outing last Saturday, the term “worst-case scenario” started to creep into football minds everywhere. However, Cobb’s injury was revealed to be minor, and according to Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the wide receiver isn’t...

Young Bears fan names brain tumor Aaron Rodgers

A friendship that developed between a loyal Green Bay Packers fan and a young devoted Chicago Bears backer has provided the backdrop for an inspiring story about how the youngster used his unfavorable opinion of the Packers, especially Aaron Rodgers, into a motivational tool to help him battle cancer. Miguel Reyes, 14, was diagnosed with stage 3 brain cancer in 2014. He met Peg...

Masthay Could Get Booted

If Tim Masthay has another poor game on Thursday and if the Giants release Steve Weatherford – two big ifs – it wouldn’t be a shock to see the 10-year vet take over as Green Bay’s punter. Masthay struggled at the end of last season and he hasn’t regained his form this summer. The fifth-year pro from Kentucky been given a long leash by the front office and the coaches because...

The families, relationships behind NFL transactions

It was Easter Sunday 2015 that stands out. It was the day I boarded a plane to fly back to Green Bay, the town I knew and loved so well, for the very last time. My heart sank as the plane landed. I went over and over in my mind what was next. It was the beginning of a new chapter in our lives. There was so much unknown, yet we had faith in what was to come. For nine years we called...

The Green Bay Packers Make Their First Round of Preseason Cuts

Teams around the league have begun slimming their rosters down to the 75 player requirement for tomorrow’s deadline. The Green Bay Packers made their first round of cuts on Monday by releasing five players. Linebackers Tavarus Dantzler and Josh Francis, offensive linemen Vince Kowalski and Fabbians Ebbele, and defensive end Lavon Hooks were all reported as released around 5:00...

Green Bay Packers believe Randall Cobb will be available Week 1

The Green Bay Packers were extremely depressed to hear that Jordy Nelson would miss the entire 2015 NFL season due to a torn ACL. It was a huge blow for an offense that has relied on him for big numbers for a long time. Randall Cobb was more than ready to take over the top receiver role, but went down with an injury of his own on Saturday evening in Green Bay’s preseason game against...

Packers Escape Huge Scare With Randall Cobb

According to ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky, the Green Bay Packers believe wide receiver Randall Cobb has a good chance to play in the Week 1 opener at Chicago after tests confirmed a sprained shoulder. This likely means Cobb only suffered the Grade 1 sprain of the AC joint, although it’s unlikely that the Packers will ever reveal such detailed injury information. Cobb initially feared...

VIDEO: Packers Receiver Makes Best Catch Of The 2015 NFL Preseason

Here’s the scenario: you’re an NFL wide receiver and your team is getting killed in a meaningless preseason game by 25 points late in the third quarter. You run your route and get dragged down by the opposing defensive back on a play. What do you do? While some players would have just let the ball drop and gotten the penalty for pass interference, Green Bay Packers wide receiver...

Quick thoughts on the Philadelphia 39-26 win over the Packers

As the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers game has officially come to a close on Saturday, there are many questions that have to be answered about the Packers, the Eagles, not so much. First off, the injury just keep piling up for the Green Bay Packers. Last week, the Packers lost wideout Jordy Nelson to a torn ACL. Tonight, they lost three more players as Nelson’s fellow...

Randall Cobb suffers shoulder injury vs. Eagles

The Packers recently lost No. 1 receiver Jordy Nelson to a season-ending ACL injury, which made Cobb the team’s new top target in the passing game. Cobb tallied 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t play Saturday night, and we probably won’t see him again until Week 1.

Predicting the First Wave of Packer Cuts

As we get closer to the end of camp, that means that, unfortunately, “The Turk” will come calling for players. And when he tells them that coach wants to see them, they know that their time is up. For the Packers it is no different, except that this year the cuts are much more difficult. The first cut down needs to take place by Tuesday, and the roster has to be down to 75. Currently...

Green Bay Packers sign rookie WR to replace Nelson

In the wake of the Jordy Nelson season ending knee injury, the Green Bay Packers are looking at all possibilities to upgrade their team in his absence. The team already had Davante Adams, who has a huge vertical leap that will factor largely in his game after a great rookie season last year. They also have dependable speedster Randall Cobb, who will serve as Aaron Rodgers‘ top...

Packers Most Overpaid Player

It’s not a big deal since the Packers are still nearly $16 million under the salary cap, but it’s clear a month into training camp that fourth-year safety Sean Richardson is the most overpaid player on the team. The former Vanderbilt star will make more money in 2015 than all but a dozen players on the entire roster. This, despite the fact he’s been no better than the 9th or...

Packers smart to sit Aaron Rodgers for rest of preseason

The Green Bay Packers lost their second-best offensive player, Jordy Nelson, to a torn ACL last week. Now, they may be protecting their best offensive player from getting injured in a meaningless preseason game. All signs point to quarterback Aaron Rodgers sitting out the remainder of the preseason, which is a very smart move by head coach Mike McCarthy. The reality is, veteran...

The fallout of the Jordy Nelson injury is still occurring, and Green Bay is scrambling to figure out who will help step up and replace his production. Randall Cobb is the number one receiver now for superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but his second option is going to be second-year wide receiver Davante Adams.

Packers rookie WR Ty Montgomery taking over for Jordy Nelson

The Green Bay Packers suffered a huge loss on Sunday afternoon when Jordy Nelson went down with a torn ACL. He will miss the entire 2015 season, and losing him will hurt the Green Bay offense in a big way. Nelson is one of the best wide receivers in the entire NFL, and finding a way to replace him is going to be extremely difficult. Ty Montgomery was selected in the third round...

Eyeless Aaron Rodgers on ‘Madden 16’ is straight-up nightmare fuel (pic)

GAH! Aaron Rodgers is apparently such a phenomenal quarterback he doesn’t even need eyes to survey the field and pick apart defenses. At least that is how a hilarious glitch in “Madden 16” makes it appear as the Green Bay Packers quarterback is depicted sans eyes in his ocular cavities.

Why the NFL’s preseason needs an overhaul

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson is believed to have torn his ACL Sunday in an exhibition game that was of little value to the veteran. There doesn’t seem to be much anyone can do about non-contact injuries, but just about every team spends the preseason trying to manage playing time of key veterans to reduce injury risk. No one loves preseason games. Even the owners—the...
