Since the Green Bay Packers won’t be signing anyone of note during this free agency period, we decided to look at their all-time best free agent signings to cheer you up.
The Green Bay Packers have gone from a position of strength to a position that’s potentially weak in a matter of two days. The team’s inside linebacker depth has been diluted even further with the release of Brandon Chillar.
Nick Barnett wants to finish his career with the Green Bay Packers. He made that abundantly clear Thursday, saying he’s willing to work with the organization to make it happen. The Packers may have other ideas, though.
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the obvious yesterday, saying Desmond Bishop was the team’s No. 1 inside linebacker, but the rest of the group is surrounded by uncertainty.
The Packers confirmed Bishop was part of the team’s long-term plans after he took over for Nick Barnett and received a four-year extension in December. Meanwhile, Barnett and A.J. Hawk will be competing to start opposite Bishop.
The Green Bay Packers have to make a decision on linebacker A.J. Hawk at some point this offseason.
Hawk is guaranteed $10 million for the 2011 season under his current contract. That’s an amount the Packers have no intention of paying.
I’ll be honest. I’ve never been a big fan of Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk. He’s simply never lived up to his status as the fifth-overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft.

The Green Bay Packers filled the two roster spots vacated when they placed Brandon Chillar and Spencer Havner on injured reserve by promoting Robert Francois and Josh Gordy from the practice squad. Francois, a linebacker, was on the Packers’ roster for four games earlier this season. He was originally promoted from the practice squad prior […]
The Green Bay Packers now have 13 players on injured reserve after the team placed linebacker Brandon Chillar and tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner there, Tuesday. Both players aggravated injuries — Chillar a shoulder and Havner a hamstring — in the Packers’ loss to Atlanta. Chillar recorded 16 tackles, a sack and an interception in eight […]
Not that the news is going to change the season, but the Green Bay Packers are likely to be without linebacker Brandon Chillar and tight end/linebacker Spencer Havner for a while. Chillar aggravated the shoulder injury he suffered earlier in the year on kickoff coverage in the first half of the Packers’ loss to Atlanta. […]
