Defensive coordinator Dom Capers is tinkering with the Green Bay Packers defensive line. Capers is considering moving B.J. Raji to defensive end so he’s matched up against a guard and returning Ryan Pickett to nose tackle. This should work out just fine.
We’re back with another look at Green Bay Packers training camp. With several veterans given the night off, the youngsters were given a chance to shine. Quarterbacks Matt Flynn and Graham Harrell stepped up, as did receiver Tori Gurley. Jarius Wynn outplayed Mike Neal, scuffles galore and more!
Have the Green Bay Packers handed Mike Neal a starting job at defensive end? Most of us thought C.J. Wilson, who filled in for the injured Cullen Jenkins last season, would have a shot to compete. Not according to the Press Gazette.
Green Bay Packers players riding local kids bikes to and from practice is one of the coolest things about training camp. Getting up close with these Packers has taught us things about Nick Collins appetite, Jermichael Finley’s chances of injuring himself and Josh Sitton’s hair, among other things. Check out the gallery and see what you think.
A lot of people seem to think the Green Bay Packers have a hole to fill on their defensive line, with defensive end Cullen Jenkins expected to depart in free agency and Johnny Jolly making stupid decisions somewhere in Houston. Football Outsiders named defensive line as the team’s biggest post-draft hole and several experts suggested it was the Packers’ biggest need going into the draft.
The Chicago Bears aren’t the only team aiming to sign Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins. The Washington Redskins are reportedly interested as well. Jenkins will be a free agent when the NFL’s offseason finally begins. The Packers have expressed no interest in re-signing the veteran, even though he’s coming off a season where he recorded a career-high seven sacks.
Ohio State defensive end Cameron Heyward has been the popular pick for the Green Bay Packers in a lot of mock drafts, recently. It’s not a surprise. Heyward seems to be floating somewhere in the 25-to-32 range, he’s projected as a 3-4 defensive end in the pros and the Packers will be down a man […]
There’s speculation Johnny Jolly’s second arrest for codeine possession, which put his NFL career in serious jeopardy, will force the Green Bay Packers to reevaluate re-signing defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins, who had seven sacks in 11 games in 2010, will be one of the most sought-after defensive free agents whenever free agency begins.
As far as he’s concerned, Cullen Jenkins’ career with the Green Bay Packers is over.
He’s a little bitter about it too.
The Packers did not use their franchise or transition tags — the deadline to use them was Thursday — and the team hasn’t approached Jenkins about a new contract.
The sheen of winning Super Bowl XLV hasn’t quite worn off, but the Green Bay Packers front office is going to have to make some important offseason decisions very soon. The biggest of those may be what to do with defensive end Cullen Jenkins. Jenkins enters the offseason without a contract and the Packers didn’t […]
Like a lot of people, I openly wondered why the hell the Green Bay Packers drafted a defensive end in the second round of this year’s draft. The Packers’ defensive line looked to be one of the strengths of the team, at the time. The team seemingly had more pressing needs at other positions, as […]
As the Green Bay Packers’ injuries began to pile up, quite a few people thought the wheels were about to fall off. The Packers currently have 10 players on injured reserve, five of which are starters, eight of which play defense. While Ryan Grant and the Packers lack of a certifiable running game was the […]
Although the Green Bay Packers made it out of their game with the Minnesota Vikings almost injury free, the team still got some bad news on Monday regarding injuries. Both linebacker Brady Poppinga and defensive end Mike Neal will be joining seven teammates on injured reserve. Poppinga, who hurt himself in the loss to Miami, […]
The Green Bay Packers got some good news on the injury front, Wednesday, which is a refreshing change of pace for the team. The most important development is linebacker Clay Matthews returned to practice after missing last Sunday’s game with Miami. Matthews only took part in the jog through portion of practice, but barring a […]
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went through a full practice Friday and has been cleared to start against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Officially, he’s listed as probable on the injury report. “I thought Aaron Rodgers looked fine today at practice,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “From my perspective, I would say he’s ready to […]
As expected, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (concussion), linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) and defensive end Ryan Pickett (ankle) didn’t practice on Wednesday. Rodgers has a shot at playing against Miami this weekend if he passes a battery of tests to see if he’s fully recovered from the concussion he suffered against Washington. Matthews also […]
Green Bay Packers defensive end Cullen Jenkins is not the kind of guy who makes a scene… unless he wants a new contract. Ah yes, it’s that time of year. Or at least it’s that time of year for Jenkins — the season of discontent. Jenkins is in the final year of his contract and […]
The Green Bay Packers will be without linebacker Brandon Chillar, who has an injured shoulder, against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, while cornerback Sam Shields is doubtful with a calf injury and not expected to play. You know what that means! Actually, in one case you do — A.J. Hawk will take the bulk of […]
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 […]
It looks increasingly likely the Green Bay Packers will be without key contributors at two of their thinnest positions this weekend, as cornerback Brandon Underwood and defensive end Mike Neal are listed as questionable on the injury report. Underwood, who will be the Packers nickel or dime back when he returns, has been out with […]
