  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.

  Packers | Marcedes Lewis wants to keep playing    Mon Jan 20, 04:14 PM

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.

  Packers | Jaire Alexander breaks thumb    Mon Jan 20, 12:44 AM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers CB Jaire Alexander (thumb) suffered a broken thumb during the team's NFC Championship Game loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Footballguys view: Alexander was banged up this past year with several different injuries but he did play a full 16-game season. This broken thumb is the most severe of all the injuries. He is hopeful to avoid surgery.

  Packers | Davante Adams will be on move    Fri Jan 17, 01:59 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams will line up from different locations in the formation in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 19, QB Aaron Rodgers said Friday. 'I'm not sure if they (the 49ers) are gonna move (CB Richard Sherman) around, but we're for sure gonna move Davante around,' Rodgers said.

Footballguys view: The 49ers could also bracket Adams and force Aaron Rodgers to throw to someone else to beat them. He was a major factor last week in the win over Seattle, especially on third down.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: Lazard should be fine for the NFC Championship Game. He was banged up against the Seahawks in the Divisional Round but was able to come back and play after missing some time. The Packers won last week with Davante Adams doing almost all the heavy lifting in the passing game. It would be nice is someone else would elevate to help out QB Aaron Rodgers.

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham (non-injury) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: Just a veteran day of rest here. Graham was the No.2 receiver for the Packers last week against the Seahawks when he had three catches for 49 yards on four targets. He's likely to have a similar stat line against the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.

Green Bay Packers WR Allen Lazard (ankle), who left the NFC Divisional Round Game against the Seattle Seahawks due to an ankle injury, was not walking with a limp after the game Sunday, Jan. 12.

Footballguys view: Good news for Lazard here. He was raw as a receiver when he came into the league as an undrafted free agent from Iowa State. Lazard is still raw but has upside as a receiver. He had 35 catches for 477 yards and three touchdowns. We'll see if he can practice this week leading up to the Packers game against the 49ers in the NFC Championship on Sunday.

  Packers | Green Bay moves on to NFC Championship    Sun Jan 12, 10:02 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers finished 16-of-27 for 243 yards and two touchdowns as the team raced out to a 21-3 lead before holding on for a 28-23 victory in Sunday's NFC Divisional Round playoff game. RB Aaron Jones ran for 62 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries, while Rodgers added 14 more yards on the ground. WR Davante Adams hauled in eight catches for 160 yards and two touchdowns, while TE Jimmy Graham was the only other Packer with more than one catch, tallying three receptions for 49 yards. LBs Preston Smith and Za'Darius Smith each recorded two of Green Bay's five sacks, while LB Blake Martinez led all tacklers with 10 stops (seven solo).

Footballguys view: Rodgers made a few unreal throws when he needed to and the Packers made a 21-3 hold up. They'll face a San Francisco team that thumped them 37-8 during the regular season.
