PACKERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Green Bay Packers: Good bye A.J. Hawk

A.J. Hawk With the offseason underway, most teams in the NFL have begun to cut veterans left and right.  After releasing middle linebacker Brad Jones, the Green Bay Packers made another big move as they cut nine year vet A.J. Hawk.  After being drafted fifth overall in the 2006 NFL Draft out of Ohio State, expectations were high for Hawk.  Hawk had a pretty successful career...

Bet on the Packers to Win the Super Bowl Next Season

There, I said it. Way too soon, of course, as free agency and the draft are still down the road. Frankly, though, other than the Packers retaining Randall Cobb, I don’t think it matters much. If we go under the assumption that the Packers can sign Cobb before he hits the free agent market, (and I think they will), the team as constituted is good enough to win it all next year...

2014 Packers Position Group Analysis – Specialists

Overview: For as lousy as the Special Teams units have been the past few seasons, the three main players in the group have been solid for the most part. Yes, we’ve now had one horrible season each from Mason Crosby and Tim Masthay, but there’s no reason to panic about either of them. With a shake up of the Special Teams coaches, it will be interesting to see how these units fare...

Packers expected to re-sign BJ Raji

Pending Green Bay Packers free agent DT BJ Raji will likely be staying in Green Bay, just as he stayed in the area to rehab his torn biceps tendon during training camp in 2014. "I’m glad he stayed here,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said last week at the NFL Combine. “I’m glad he stayed with us and was part of the family. I thought it was good having him around, it was...

Should the Green Bay Packers consider a d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Cory’s Corner: Jones and Hawk were necessary subtractions

Inside linebacker was the bleakest Packers’ position group. Now it’s the thinnest. After the Packers cut Brad Jones and A.J. Hawk, the team now only has Sam Barrington at the position. In two seasons as a pro, Barrington has started only seven games. But even with the cloud of uncertainty hanging over 1265 Lombardi Ave., these were moves the Packers had to make. Jones was a guy...

Report: Packers Expected To Re-Sign DL B.J. Raji

Bill Huber of of PackerReport.com reports that the Packers are expected to re-sign free agent DT B.J. Raji. The Packers are also reportedly interested in bringing back NT Letroy Guion, even though he had some recent issues that resulted in an arrest for felony possession of marijuana and a firearm. With this in mind, it’s not all that surprising to hear that they could bring Raji...

Packers to open up Lambeau Field for Brett Favre’s Hall of Fame ceremony

While it isn’t exactly what Brett Favre requested, the Green Bay Packers did at least make a decision that will allow more fans to at least tangentially attend the legendary quarterback’s induction into the team’s Hall of Fame and related jersey retirement.

Brandon Bostick: Botched onside kick ‘haunts me like a recurring nightmare’

Brandon Bostick was only suppose to block on the Seattle Seahawks’ onside kick with 2:09 remaining in the NFC Championship Game. Instead, the former Green Bay Packers backup tight end went for the ball, and it bounced off his hands and helmet, allowing Seahawks receiver Chris Matthews to recover it. The Seahawks overcame a 16-point deficit to beat Green Bay 28-22 in overtime...

Packers cut A.J. Hawk

While this probably doesn’t come as a shock to Green Bay Packers fans, it’s still kind of a jolt when someone who has such long ties to an organization gets bid a farewell. A.J. Hawk was drafted sixth overall by the Packers in the 2006 NFL Draft and went on to become the leading tackler in the history of the franchise. The cut will give the Packers $3.5 million in cap space....

Packers moving on from Randall Cobb?

The Broncos and Cowboys made it clear they won’t let Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant, their respective No. 1’s, hit free agency, leaving Packers’ Randall Cobb the top wide receiver on the market.

Green Bay Packers: Top 3 defensive backs of all-time

A ball-hawking secondary is what makes a good defense a great defense. The secondary’s ability to create turnovers at any point in a game is a great asset to have.

Catching up with the Packers

The title of this post has a dual meaning. One, of course, is that other members of the NFC North have been trying to catch up with the Green Bay Packers for a while now. On that front, as the saying goes, no cigar. Good luck with that this coming season, too, by the way. Another meaning of this post's title is that PackerFansUnited.com needs to catch up with the Packers. It's been...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: Expect Thompson to Draft BPA, Really.

As I’ve mentioned before, more than anything I blame the 2011 and 2012 drafts for the shortcomings of what truly looked like a budding Packers dynasty after the 2011 NFL regular season.  Why did these drafts fall short of the standard of excellence that Ted Thompson true believers have become accustomed to? It comes down to two things, really.  One is obvious, and carries less...

Earlier this week, news broke that Green Bay Packers’ wide receiver Randall Cobb, who is set to hit the free market if he doesn’t get a new contract, is seeking about $9 million per year. While the $9 million Cobb is asking for is not exactly scaring the Packers away, general manager Ted Thompson said that the team is hopeful of reaching a deal to keep the slot receiver playing...
