Ah, free agency, what an exhausting wench you are. Today, we’ve got three major trades completed, including the one that makes the Eagles the second-best team in the NFC and the Redskins making their usual stupid moves by overpaying some guy who won’t amount to shit.
Although teams can’t begin signing free agents until Friday, this is the second day they could negotiate with them. Several clubs took advantage and reached agreements with players. The Green Bay Packers jumped into the fray by reaching an agreement with Mason Crosby. Here are today’s developments that could impact the Packers’ quest to repeat […]
Teams can’t officially sign free agents until Friday, but that didn’t stop several players from agreeing to contracts. That, plus the Minnesota Vikings pursuit of Donovan McNabb and Nnamdi Asomugha’s first suitor.
The Green Bay Packers have signed 15 undrafted free agents, the most intriguing of which, Shaky Smithson, led the nation in punt return average last season.
Now that we know who the Green Bay Packers unrestricted free agents will be, we can tell you who’s likely to be back and who isn’t. For several players, the writing is on the wall — they’ve played their last game with the Packers. Here’s a look at who’s likely coming back and who’s likely […]
Personally, I thought we made it pretty clear. Soon-to-be-former Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha isn’t likely to sign with the Green Bay Packers, even though he’s expressed an interest in rejoining former teammate Charles Woodson.
Sure, it’s a wonderful thought, pairing Asomugha with Tramon Williams and moving Woodson to free safety. Asomugha, Williams, Woodson and Nick Collins — three All Pros and one in the making.
We didn’t pay much attention to the fact Oakland Raiders cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha became a free agent after his contract voided, earlier this week. The Green Bay Packers already have two Pro Bowl-caliber cornerbacks in Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams. They don’t really need another. However, there are reports Asomugha is interested in playing for […]
With Desmond Bishop receiving a contact extension, defensive end Cullen Jenkins should be the top priority for the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have several key players who are scheduled to be free agents under the current system, which is expected to be extended at some point. In addition to Jenkins, they include fullbacks John […]
Earlier in the offseason, the Green Bay Packers expressed interest in free agent running back Brian Westbrook. The former Philadelphia Eagles star has had injury problems his entire career and missed eight games with concussions in 2009, but when healthy, Westbrook has been a force, twice rushing for 1,200 yards. Now 30, Westbrook appears near […]
The Green Bay Packers plan to reduce the tenders to their three remaining unsigned restricted free agents tomorrow if those players don’t sign before the 12 a.m. ET deadline. This is a course of action we suggested would happen last week, and per usual, the “mainstream” media has caught on. Pro Football Talk reports that […]
On June 15 NFL teams can reduce their contract tenders to unsigned restricted free agents. The Green Bay Packers have three remaining unsigned players — safety Atari Bigby, defensive end Johnny Jolly and cornerback Tramon Williams. Bigby’s tender is for $1.759 million, Jolly’s if for $2.521 million and Williams is for $3.043 million. The Packers […]
Hey, Green Bay Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson has done nothing to wow us thus far this offseason. The Packers have been silent in free agency. They haven’t made a peep on the trade market. The team’s draft made us scratch our head several times. So, with the Packers seemingly only a player or two […]
The Green Bay Packers signed several undrafted free agents following the seven-round NFL Draft. Those players are as follows. Miami cornerback Sam Shields Shields is a speed demon. He ran the 40 in 4.3 seconds at Miami’s pro day. However, he’s extremely raw as a cornerback, having played only one season at the position at […]
A day after we told you the Green Bay Packers were looking at running backs in the early rounds of the draft, it looks like they’ve expanded that search to the free agent scrap heap as well. Greg Bedard reported today, the Packers are kicking the tires on former Philadelphia Eagles’ starter Brian Westbrook. Though […]
After signing four of their own free agents and doling out somewhere in the neighborhood of $80 million to do so, the Green Bay Packers have done quite a bit to solidify their team for 2010 and beyond. Besides getting Nick Collins, Ryan Pickett, Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher back into the fold, the Packers […]
Word out of Green Bay is the Packers are close to a deal to resign veteran right tackle Mark Tauscher. “I feel Mark Tauscher is definitely not too far away, and hopefully we’ll have some news for you there shortly, and no different with Ryan Pickett,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “We’re focused on bringing our […]
By Green Bay Packers’ standards, the team has been active during free agency. They haven’t signed a player from another team, but they’ve now signed three of their own players after inking safety Nick Collins and nose tackle Ryan Pickett today. There are conflicting reports on Collins’ contract. Per Pete Dougherty, Collins received a four-year […]
The first weekend of free agency is always fast paced and sees a lot of players changing teams. It also sees the biggest names signed. This year, those players were Julius Peppers, Antrel Rolle, Karlos Dansby, Dunta Robinson, etc. Now that the big names and their huge contracts are taken care of, the second tier […]
Although it will be quieter today than it was yesterday, we’ll again keep running updates throughout the day with the latest news at the top of the page. Check out the day one free agent rundown here. ———- OK, the Aaron Kampman saga continues to get weirder. The Eagles have refuted the report below that […]
We’re going to update this post throughout the day simply because there already is a lot going on and there will be a lot more in the free for all known as NFL free agency. The most recent news will be at the top. ———- Safety Antrel Rolle was the last big signing of the […]
