The Green Bay Packers appear to be willing to let fullback John Kuhn test the market in free agency.
Kuhn’s agent says the Packers haven’t been in touch about a new contract and Kuhn could be an attractive option to a team looking for a lead blocker and power runner.
The Green Bay Packers got to control the world for a minute.
At least that was Charles Woodson’s assessment of what it meant to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange, which Woodson, teammates John Kuhn, Ryan Grant and Packers president Mark Murphy did, yesterday.
I know. It’s not the offseason yet, but some people are getting an early jump on looking at the Green Bay Packers free agents to be. One guy who’s in an even more dubious position than receiver James Jones, whose chances of returning to the Packers seem about 50/50, is running back Brandon Jackson. When […]
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 […]
Running back James Starks burst onto the scene three weeks ago when the Green Bay Packers hosted the San Francisco 49ers, running for 73 yards on 18 carries and seemingly reviving the team’s stagnant running game. Afterward, coach Mike McCarthy praised Starks’ ability to gain extra yards after contact. On Sunday, Starks wasn’t even active […]
Not that it’s time to anoint rookie running back James Starks the second coming, but the sixth-round pick looks like he might have a bright future with the Green Bay Packers. Starks ran for 73 yards on 18 carries in the Packers’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers, Sunday. Meanwhile, starting halfback Brandon Jackson got […]
Lost in the malaise surrounding the Green Bay Packers’ injury report last week was this nugget — pretty much everyone in the organization is pissed general manager Ted Thompson failed to acquire running back Marshawn Lynch from the Buffalo Bills. Lynch was traded to the Seattle Seahawks for a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a […]
The Seattle Seahawks completed a deal to acquire Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch for a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a conditional pick in 2012, today. The Packers seemed to be the obvious destination for Lynch since Ryan Grant went down with a season-ending injury in week one and much speculation and rumor followed, […]
The Green Bay Packers got a win on Sunday, but their 28-26 victory over the Detroit Lions left a lot to be desired. The 0-4 Lions racked up more than 400 yards of offense in Lambeau Field and quarterback Shaun Hill threw for 331 yards and two touchdowns, largely on the strength of short passes […]
Steffen: After what feels like decades of ineptitude (oh wait, it has been decades) the Detroit Lions’ offseason roster moves had many prognosticators predicting marked improvement over last season’s two-win season. Indeed the Lions are an improved team. Led by rookie dynamo Jahvid Best, the offense has more firepower and fellow rookie defensive tackle/tank Ndamukong […]
See what I did with that headline right there? I toed the company line. Do I believe it? Well, I’m not an idiot, so no. Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy, on the other hand… Look, I don’t want to get into what a complete turd I think McCarthy is again, so let me get […]
Let’s be realistic. The better team did not win on Monday Night Football. Forget that the Green Bay Packers have no running game. Forget that the defense played their usual bend-but-don’t-break brand of football. The Green Bay Packers lost to the Chicago Bears 20-17 on Monday night because they exhibited the same stupid, aggravating play […]
I’d like to say we learned a lot about the Green Bay Packers after they defeated the Buffalo Bills 34-7 on Sunday, but I can’t. The Packers let the Bills hang around in the first half, but ultimately did exactly what they were supposed to do — dominate one of the worst teams in the […]
Steffen: The Vegas oddsmakers have the Green Bay Packers favored by how much again? 13.5 points? There are plenty of folks out there who’d tell you that isn’t nearly enough. Don’t count me among them. Like last week, this game will be much closer than it needs to be. Obviously, the biggest question mark for […]
The Green Bay Packers aren’t as strong as they were now that running back Ryan Grant has been put on injured reserve, but it isn’t time to throw in the towel just yet. Grant may not have run for 1,200 yards in each of the past two season by accident, but the Packers have always […]
Green Bay Packers running back Ryan Grant is out for the season and will go on injured reserve after tearing two ligaments in his ankle during the Packers victory over the Philadelphia Eagles — a story first reported by Jay Glazer. The injury will require surgery and Grant is expected to be on crutches for […]
We don’t have a definitive answer yet, but Green Bay Packers starting running back Ryan Grant looks like he’ll be out several weeks with an ankle injury coach Mike McCarthy called significant. Grant, who termed his status as week-to-week, has already been ruled out of the Packers next game against Buffalo. Brandon Jackson will start […]
Maybe it’s time to table the Green Bay Packers Super Bowl talk for a bit. The defense, led by linebacker Clay Matthews, was the biggest reason the Packers were able to escape Philadelphia with a 27-20 win over the Eagles. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense wasn’t close to firing on all cylinders, but […]
The Green Bay Packers had to release 22 players today to get to the 53-man roster limit. Perhaps the biggest surprise among those players is safety and return man Will Blackmon. Blackmon has been injured for much of training camp and that certainly didn’t help his chances of making the roster, but he was considered […]
The Green Bay Packers fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 17-13, Thursday night in their preseason finale. The game wasn’t easy to watch. The starters played only one series and veterans Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Chad Clifton and Charles Woodson were healthy scratches. There were some interesting developments in the game, however, and […]
