PACKERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rookie LB Tavarus Dantzler ready to make an impact: 'I definitely try to leave my mark on you'

Green Bay Packers 2015 undrafted free agent linebacker Tavarus Dantzler was evaluated as a priority free agent, and the team quickly signed him once the 2015 NFL Draft was over. Dantzler earned second team All-MEAC honors (2014) after career highs in tackles (80) and tackles-for-loss (8.5) while playing at Bethune-Cookman.

Packers, Crosby to be Marginally Affected by New PAT Rule

The NFL’s most recent rule change – moving extra point attempts back to the 15-yard line – has drawn mixed reactions since it broke news on May 19. This change effectively makes the common PAT attempt a 32 or 33-yard kick while two-point attempts will remain on the two-yard line. The ultimate objective of this moderation is to encourage teams to attempt more two-point conversions...

Film study: Green Bay Packers TE Kennard Backman

The third and final sixth round pick in the 2015 NFL draft for the Green Bay Packers was also their last pick in the entire draft.

Rookie Christian Ringo ready to help add to Packers pass rush

Green Bay Packers rookie defensive lineman Christian Ringo is a three-technique pass rusher, and he will begin his career competing for a roster spot behind veteran Mike Daniels, someone he's been compared to quite often. “I’ve definitely looked at his film,” Ringo said of Daniels, via Packers.com. “He was a lot taller than me, so I can’t do what he did.” “I...

Green Bay Packers: Crowded at the running back position

Last year, Eddie Lacy and James Starks shouldered almost all of the workload in the backfield for the Green Bay Packers. There wasn’t much need for a third back, and if there was, John Kuhn filled that void. With running backs frequently getting injured or not performing well, most NFL teams carry four or five running/fullbacks. With two spots filled already, (Eddie Lacy and James...

Packers 2015 Draft Analysis: Ted Thompson Hits Another Home Run

Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson is pretty good at this whole drafting thing. In fact, he might be the best in the business when it comes to procuring talent from the annual NFL selection meeting (aka the NFL Draft). And despite some criticism about the Packers 2015 class, there are plenty of reasons to be excited about Green Bay’s incoming rookies and there are more...

Notebook: The Price Is Usually Right

General manager Ted Thompson’s uncanny ability to place a proper monetary value on a player is why Green Bay’s salary cap is in such terrific shape. In fact, you can make a strong argument that corner Sam Shields is the only vastly overpaid player on the roster. At $9.7 million a year, Shields is behind only Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson when it...

How Will Second Year Players Impact Green Bay Packers?

The Green Bay Packers had four rookies who made significant contributions to the team in the 2014 season. A handful of others were drafted but, for various reasons, did not have as big of an impact. These nine players who were drafted by Green Bay last year will look to prove themselves in their second season. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Corey Linsley, Richard Rodgers and Davante Adams all...

Film Study: Green Bay Packers ILB Jake Ryan

The film study series continues today with a look at the fourth round pick of the Green Bay Packers, former Michigan linebacker Jake Ryan. What stood out on film: Ryan is a very instinctive player, which will make him a great fit as a 3-4 inside linebacker. He was consistently near the ball in a position to either make the play or help clean up a teammate’s tackle. Another aspect...

Packers Xs and Os: The Randall and Rollins “Mirror” Defense

When Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson selected defensive backs Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins with his first two picks in the 2015 draft, fans began to immediately wonder if they were safeties or cornerbacks. Discussions quickly popped up that they would play cornerback. Then slot cornerback. Then back to safety. Then as hybrid cover players. And so on. So, which...

Cory’s Corner: This is Andrew Quarless’ year to show he belongs

The Packers’ tight ends are just a bunch of guys. Nobody really jumps off the page. They’re adequate, but not dynamic. Which brings me to Andrew Quarless. He will be entering his sixth season this year, but most importantly it’s a contract year for the Penn State standout picked in the fifth round. He’s only started in 26 of 55 games and has only caught six touchdowns in...

Watch: Eddie Lacy Can’t Ride a Tricycle, Gets Schooled by Kids

Lacy was at a charity event for Next Door Milwaukee this past weekend and was tasked with taking on a couple of children in a no-holds-barred tricycle race.

Areas of concern for the Green Bay Packers in 2015

After the way the 2014 NFL season went for the Green Bay Packers and how close they were to the Super Bowl, one would think there would not be too much to worry about.  However, the Packers did have some roster turnover after the NFC Championship game.  They lost two of their middle linebackers in A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones and fired special team’s coordinator Shawn Slocum.  Let’s...

Packers All-Draft Bust Team: 1991-present

The Green Bay Packers are known as a Draft and Develop team, but that doesn’t mean that they always get it right. In fact, they tend to get it wrong a fair amount. Not as bad as some other teams, mind you, but they are not hitting 1.000. I have only been around since 1991, and there have been plenty of draft busts to create a full team. I got the idea from the book, “Packers...

Prior to Eddie Lacy’s arrival in Green Bay, the Packers did not have a rushing game that ranked in the top ten since the 2004 season, when Ahman Green was the starting running back. Since then, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers have made the team a perennial powerhouse in the passing game, but the running game had consistently ranked in the bottom half of the league.But drafting Lacy...

Green Bay Packers: why drafting Brett Hundley was a mistake

One of the biggest storylines from the Green Bay Packers’ 2015 draft class was the selection of UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley.

My first reaction to the pick was, “what? Why?” It’s been a few weeks...
