As we told you last week, the Green Bay Packers offensive linemen worked out together near Nashville for three days this week. Tackle Chad Clifton and center Scott Wells, who organized the get together, live in the area. What we didn’t know until today, is who actually showed up.
The Green Bay Packers are made some strange moves on Wednesday, when they tendered free-agents-to-be guard Daryn Colledge, kicker Mason Crosby and fullback John Kuhn.
Colledge and Crosby received second-round tenders and Kuhn received the lowest tender.
Here’s why all none of this makes any sense.
Daryn Colledge has never been the Green Bay Packers best offensive lineman.
In fact, he’s probably the weakest of the team’s starting five, but he had a decent 2010 season and again proved to be one of the Packers most durable players.
The Green Bay Packers will go into this year’s NFL Draft with a roster that doesn’t have a lot of holes.
The team could use upgrades in two key areas, though. The Packers still don’t have a pass-rush threat at linebacker opposite Clay Matthews and could also use help along the offensive line.
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 […]
The Green Bay Packers don’t seem overly concerned about left guard Daryn Colledge’s knee injury, but if he’s unable to play this weekend, T.J. Lang would start in his place. Lang has played his way into the backup job at both tackle positions, but wasn’t previously the primary backup at left guard. That was Jason […]
After the Green Bay Packers’ loss to the Atlanta Falcons, we were quick to point out the offensive line’s ineffectual run blocking. It was pretty clear after the loss that everyone not named Josh Sitton was struggling in the running game and the stats backed it up. The Packers showed improvement against an inferior opponent […]
The Green Bay Packers offensive line has been getting a lot of positive hype this season, primarily because they’ve kept quarterback Aaron Rodgers off his ass, for the most part. Indeed, the Packers offensive line has improved in pass protection. They’ve allowed only 21 sacks so far this year, which is the 12th fewest in […]
Steffen: It’s hard for me to say this, but I think Packer nation just has to accept it — the Chicago Bears are better than they were last year. They are a different, more confident team. They are playing faster on a defense that features a refurbished Brian Urlacher and the freakish abilities of Julius […]
It looks like the Green Bay Packers will open their game with the Chicago Bears tonight with the same starting offensive line they opened the season with. Both Chad Clifton and Daryn Colledge practiced with the No. 1 unit on Saturday and will start barring a last-minute setback. Clifton has been battling a knee injury […]
