  Packers | Tyler Ervin's deal official    Mon Mar 30, 04:21 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Tyler Ervin officially re-signed with the Green Bay Packers Monday, March 30. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ervin is a lightning quick back but he won't touch the ball much on offense. Instead, he'll work as a reserve player behind Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, plus Ervin will play on special teams.

  Packers | Accuracy eluded Aaron Rodgers in 2019    Sun Mar 29, 04:30 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was charged with a 'bad throw' on a league-high 21.2 percent of his passes in 2019.

Footballguys view: Rodgers just launches passes from all sorts of platforms, so his 'bad throw' percentage is going to be a bit higher than some others. He is still going to be his type of quarterback, and that comes with some impossible throws he can make happen.

  Packers | Tyler Ervin returning to Pack    Fri Mar 27, 09:16 AM

Free-agent RB Tyler Ervin (Packers) is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Green Bay Packers Friday, March 27. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: Ervin is a end-of-the-bench running back and return man on special teams. He has little fantasy value and we've moved on from holding out hope for him to do more in crazy deep dynasty formats.

  Packers | Devin Funchess is set to sign with Green Bay    Tue Mar 24, 07:25 PM

Unrestricted free-agent WR Devin Funchess (Colts) is expected to sign an undisclosed contract with the Green Bay Packers, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Funchess only appeared in one game last year for the Colts. It was a collarbone injury that kept him out most of the season. Funchess brings some more size to the Packers WR room but doesn't have much fantasy value.

Free-agent TE Marcedes Lewis (Packers) agreed to terms on a one-year contract worth $2.25 million - including $1 million guaranteed - to re-sign with the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Packers like what they have in the veteran tight end who will be entering his 15th year in the NFL. Lewis is just a blocker and not much of a fantasy factor at this point in his career.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham officially released    Thu Mar 12, 01:52 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham was officially released Thursday, March 12.

Footballguys view: Graham is no longer the player he used to be and didn't do much in his two seasons with the Packers. That being said, some team should be interested in him for veteran depth.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers OK with rookie QB    Fri Mar 6, 01:47 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said Friday, March 6, that he wouldn't mind if the team drafted a quarterback this spring. 'I'm a realist; I know where we're at as an org and I know where I'm at my career,' Rodgers told ESPN Milwaukee. He added that it doesn't matter who comes in, 'I'm confident (he is) not going to beat me out anytime soon' but would like to bring in players who could 'come in and help us right away.'

Footballguys view: The Packers need to be prepared for the future. It makes sense for the team to explore options at the quarterback position to see if they can find a player they like to groom behind Rodgers.

  Packers | Jared Veldheer may return    Wed Mar 4, 07:33 PM

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga may not return    Fri Feb 28, 03:31 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent OT Bryan Bulaga has not had any contract talks with the Packers since the end of the 2019 season, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This could be in part because of the wait for an outcome in CBA negotiations, but it still shows the Packers lack urgency in their efforts to keep Bulaga. Alex Light would be the next man up, but if Green Bay lets Bulaga walk, they should look for help in free agency and could bring back Jared Veldheer after he replaced Bulaga in Week 17 and divisional round of the postseason.

  Packers | Kyler Fackrell not expected back    Fri Feb 28, 03:25 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent LB Kyler Fackrell is not expected to re-sign with the Packers since he is looking for more playing time. Fackrell likely will look for a one-year deal this offseason so he can show what he can do with more playing time, according to a source.

  Packers | Aaron Jones, team to talk deal    Fri Feb 28, 02:43 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones' agent is scheduled to meet with the team and begin discussions on a new contract for Jones, who is entering the final year of his rookie deal.

Footballguys view: Giving running backs top of the market deals has been disastrous lately, so the Packers will probably try to lock in Jones for less than LeVeon Bell or David Johnson got in recent deals.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' eventual replacement could be selected in the 2020 NFL Draft, according to general manager Brian Gutekunst. 'It's a good crop this year,' Gutekunst said. 'It's a good group of quarterbacks. I think it's a little deeper than it has been in the past. It will be interesting.'

  Packers | Jimmy Graham hasn't produced    Fri Feb 14, 11:15 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham has averaged 33.8 receiving yards and caught five total touchdowns in 32 games with the team.

Footballguys view: Graham is on the books in the final year of his contract for around $11.6 million. There is only $3.6 million remaining in dead money, so expect the Packers to move on from Graham this offseason. Second-year pro Jace Sternberger could become a favorite target as the starting tight end of the Packers in 2020.

  Packers | Jamaal Williams to receive raise    Fri Jan 31, 07:05 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Jamaal Williams will have his 2020 base salary increase from $735,000 to $2.147 million because of the NFL's proven performance escalator.

Footballguys view: Williams got banged up as the season went on, but at one point was basically in a committee with Aaron Jones. He looked swifter and stronger as a runner than he had in previous years and has set up a better market for his services when he becomes a free agent next year.

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones will have his 2020 base salary increase from $735,000 to $2.147 million because of the NFL's proven performance escalator.

Footballguys view: Jones deserves that and then some. The Packers could seek to sign him to an extension this offseason to avoid losing him in free agency or having the market set his price if they wait until after this season to lock him up long term.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Ryan Grant likely will not re-sign with the Packers this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers on to Year 2    Fri Jan 24, 02:50 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers had a 'really, really good ' first year in head coach Matt LaFleur's offense, general manager Brian Gutekunst said Friday, Jan. 24, and the GM is looking forward to the encore in 2020. I'm really excited to see what he can do in Year Two,' Gutekunst said. 'I know Matt talks a lot about what Matt Ryan did in Year Two, the comparatives there. I'm really excited to see where him and the offense can go.'

Footballguys view: Rodgers had a terrible year for fantasy and didn't come close to living up to his top five quarterback ADP. He'll fall in drafts this year, but should still be drafted as a starter. If he produces like he did last year, he won't be a fantasy starter in 2020.

  Packers | Jace Sternberger impresses GM    Fri Jan 24, 12:54 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jace Sternberger impressed general manager Brian Gutekunst with his progress after he returned from the Reserve/Injured list late in the season. 'He can be one of those, as he develops, who can play from a lot of different places and be a matchup problem,' Gutekunst said Friday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Sternberger has great speed and ability to rip the seam as a receiving tight end. He should be on 2020 fantasy sleep lists with Aaron Rodgers settling into Matt LaFleur's offense.

  Packers | GM: Jimmy Graham still wants to play    Fri Jan 24, 12:39 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham wants to play in 2020, general manager Brian Gutekunst said Friday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Gutekunst didn't say whether he would be playing with the Packers if he comes back, but he has been a massive bust as a free agent signing and the team should be pushing to get 2019 third round pick Jace Sternberger on the field (or maybe even 2017 UDFA converted wide receiver Robert Tonyan) over Graham. If they release him, they'll have $3.66M in dead cap but avoid paying a $7.45M salary.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham unlikely to be back in 2020    Thu Jan 23, 01:20 AM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham is expected to be released during the offseason, in the opinion of The Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, who called the prospective move a 'given.'

Footballguys view: Not a terribly surprising take here. Graham has one year remaining on his deal. Releasing him would free up $8 million in cap room.

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga wants to continue career    Mon Jan 20, 07:05 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent OT Bryan Bulaga said he wants to continue his playing career but is not sure if he will return to the Packers this offseason.

Footballguys view: Since 2010, Bulaga has only played a full 16-game season three times. One of those times was last year and many think 2019 was one of Bulaga's better seasons. If he hits the open market (most likely) Bulaga would get a ton of interest as one of the top tackles out there.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent TE Marcedes Lewis said he wants to continue his playing career and hopes to re-sign with the Packers this offseason because he felt comfortable with his role in head coach Matt LaFleur's offense.

Footballguys view: Lewis played 500 snaps for the Packers in 2019, catching just 15 passes for 156 yards and one touchdown. He's no longer the player he used to be but the Packers may consider him on another one-year deal to have veteran depth at the position.
