  Packers | GB passing on Adrian Peterson?    Fri Mar 24, 12:34 PM

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) was reportedly close to making a visit with the Green Bay Packers before they decided his initial asking price was too high, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: The Packers need a lead running back, and Peterson would certainly give them that. If the price is too high, then perhaps the price comes down as Peterson is running out of options.

Free-agent DT Ricky Jean-Francois (Redskins) signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the Green Bay Packers Thursday, March 23, according to a source.

Footballguys view: An interesting addition to the lineup, which needs to continue stiffening up the middle for run defense.

  Packers | Adrian Peterson may visit Green Bay?    Wed Mar 22, 10:22 PM

The Green Bay Packers have 'some' interest in a visit with free-agent WR Adrian Peterson (Vikings), but it is believed that might not happen until after the team can take stock of its roster following the draft, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling.

  Packers | Christine Michael to return to GB    Wed Mar 22, 06:55 PM

Free-agent RB Christine Michael re-signed with the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, March 22. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Michael didn't do much with the Packers after he was claimed off waivers late last year. With Eddie Lacy (Seahawks) gone, Michael will get a chance at more playing time. We imagine the Packers will take a RB at some point in the draft too.

  Packers | Green Bay meets with two FAs    Wed Mar 22, 04:40 PM

Free-agent RB Christine Michael (Packers) and OT Byron Bell (Titans) met with the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, March 22, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Packers need some help in the ground game since they lost Eddie Lacy (Seahawks) in free agency. They had Michael last year after picking him up off waivers in mid-November. He didn't do much with the opportunity, so the Packers shouldn't be too fired up about bringing him back.

  Packers | Green Bay signing Lance Kendricks    Sat Mar 11, 04:45 PM

Free-agent TE Lance Kendricks (Rams) agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers Saturday, March 11. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ted Thompson going a little nuts in free agency here. He's already added Martellus Bennett to the roster, and now he doubles up on the tight end position with Kendricks. The Packers will now be able to run more effective two-TE sets in 2017.

  Packers | Green Bay adding Martellus Bennett    Fri Mar 10, 06:13 PM

Free-agent TE Martellus Bennett (Patriots) has agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers Friday, March 10, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Packers make a splash here with another quality weapon for QB Aaron Rodgers. Bennett was banged up last year but still put up solid numbers. He's expected to have offseason ankle surgery, and a fully healthy Bennett could be quite dangerous in the Packers passing attack.

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) has had contract talks with the Green Bay Packers broken off Friday, March 10, according to a source. He'll visit other teams.

Footballguys view: The Packers aren't that active in free agency, but most expected them to keep Cook. He worked well with the Packers last year and showed good chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers. In 10 games, Cook had 30 catches for 377 yards and one touchdown.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy to make his rounds    Thu Mar 9, 05:17 PM

Free-agent RB Eddie Lacy (Packers) is set to visit the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Lacy started out his career with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons for the Packers in 2013 and 2014. Ever since then, Lacy has struggled with injuries and he can't seem to get his weight under control. If healthy and in shape, Lacy could carry a large workload for any team that signs him.

  Packers | Nick Perry contract details    Thu Mar 9, 01:24 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers LB Nick Perry's new deal is five years in length and worth $60 million, including $18.5 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: As is the case almost always with the Packers, they will pay as they go and up front the $18.5 million. Once they've paid that, if Perry regresses, it shouldn't cost much to cut him loose.

  Packers | Nick Perry returning to Green Bay    Thu Mar 9, 08:39 AM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent LB Nick Perry has agreed to a deal to return to the Packers Thursday, March 9. Terms haven't been disclosed.

Footballguys view: A smart move by the Packers, though we bet Perry would have made some good money on the market. That said, he finally had a breakout year in 2016 as he logged a career high 11 sacks and 35 tackles so the Packers were keen to keep their investment in him.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent OG T.J. Lang is not expected to return to Green Bay, in the opinion of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Bob McGinn.

Footballguys view: Lang is going to be the most highly sought after guard on the open market. He could land a deal that pays him nearly $8 million per year. The Broncos and the Vikings may be considered the front-runners for his services at this time.

  Packers | GB 'being frugal' in talks with Jared Cook    Sun Mar 5, 12:09 PM

Impending free-agent TE Jared Cook (Packers) is still in talks with the Green Bay Packers about returning, but there hasn't been much progress because the franchise are 'being frugal', according to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole.

Footballguys view: Shocking! Packers GM Ted Thompson is not going to go crazy on the free agent market...even with his own free agents. This is a great TE class, so the Packers could always just draft a starter in the first three rounds if they lose Cook on the open market.

  Packers | Green Bay to talk with Eddie Lacy's agent    Wed Mar 1, 04:52 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy's agent, Pat Dye Jr., said he is scheduled to meet with the Packers this week but is not sure if the two sides will be able to reach an agreement before the start of free agency. Dye said he expects Lacy to sign a short-term deal this offseason, which would allow him to sign a lucrative contract in the near future if he plays well.

Footballguys view: Lacy is going to have to settle for a "prove it" deal no matter where he signs. The Packers aren't known to work the free agent market, so keeping Lacy on a low-risk deal would make sense.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy had extensive surgery    Tue Feb 28, 08:54 AM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) had extensive surgery to repair a ligament in his ankle in October, he confirmed in a podcast with ESPN's Adam Schefter. 'I messed up my deltoid and widened the bone on my ankle, so I had to get two screws, two wires and a plate to fix it because I messed up my deltoid ligament,' Lacy said. 'That's the longest thing to heal. My healing process is 4-6 months, on the 26th (of February) it (was) the fourth month,' Lacy also said the Packers have been vocal about bringing him back.

Footballguys view: The future is unknown for the free agent back. If fully healthy (and with his weight under control), Lacy can be a productive runner in this league. The Packers need to find RB talent, and this draft class is full of quality runners. They may choose to let Lacy walk in free agency and nab another RB in the 2017 NFL draft.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (ankle) ran publicly for the first time -- albeit in a pool during a rehab session at the University of Alabama -- since having ankle surgery a few months ago Thursday, Feb. 23.

Footballguys view: Lacy is a free agent, and the market should be lukewarm for his services. Weight problems and durability issues will keep his price low. He may not have to sign a "prove it" deal, but it's not like Lacy is going to break the bank on the open market.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers in rare company    Tue Feb 21, 05:14 PM

In 2016, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers became the fourth quarterback in NFL history to have multiple seasons of 40 or more touchdown passes.

He remains on crutches following the latter procedure.

Footballguys view: Lang is set to hit the open market, but he would like to stay with the Packers. He's a very good starter and would get quite a bit of interest from other teams if Green Bay doesn't lock him up.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent TE Jared Cook averaged 13.5 yards per catch over the final seven games of the regular season, which ranked third among tight ends in the NFL in the category.

Footballguys view: Cook is fantastic when healthy and motivated...something that has seemingly always been a problem for him as a pro. He developed great chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers and is a TE1 for fantasy owners in 2017.

  Packers | Julius Peppers unlikely back to GB    Mon Feb 20, 11:32 AM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent LB Julius Peppers appears to be done with the Packers, according to beat writer Rob Demovsky.

Footballguys view: Peppers hasn't announced whether or not he's going to retire, but he clearly has something left to offer in the NFL. In 2016 (his age-36 season), Peppers posted 7.5 sacks in 16 games. We could see him returning to the Panthers as a part-time pass rusher.

  Packers | Fines not motivating Eddie Lacy    Fri Feb 17, 12:04 AM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy has been fined over the last couple of seasons for not making weight by head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: Lacy is likely to have to sign a one-year "prove it" deal no matter where he lands...and even if he stays with the Packers. He's got a couple of 1,000-yard seasons under his belt, but problems staying healthy and weight issues will keep his contract offers somewhat reserved.

  Packers | One-year deal in Eddie Lacy's future?    Sun Feb 12, 01:45 PM

Impending free-agent RB Eddie Lacy is expected to get a one-year deal worth about $2 million was plenty of incentives in free agency this offseason, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty.

Footballguys view: Lacy is likely to sign a "prove it" deal this offseason. He began his pro career with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons after the Packers took him in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft. He's rushed for around 1,000 yards combined over the last two seasons and missed 11 games in 2016 due to injury. Durability problems and weight issues will give any team pause when considering the big back in free agency.
