  Packers | Ty Montgomery's ankle improving     Sat May 28, 12:58 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) said he has been pain free since having surgery on his ankle, and his flexibility has been making consistent progress. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he has no 'long-term' concerns about Montgomery's ankle.

Footballguys view: Montgomery has fine athleticism and can make defenders miss after the catch. A third-round pick out of Stanford last year, Montgomery is set to compete for the WR3 job with the Packers behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson taking things slow    Fri May 27, 03:44 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said his surgically repaired knee is fine, but he understands why the team is limiting his work during organized team activities. Nelson has been allowed to run, lift and perform all of the drills the trainers ask him to do.

Footballguys view: Good! There's no need for him to rush back and risk re-injuring himself. Nelson has been running routes on a side field during practices. He said he will need to regain his chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers once he is cleared to practice again.

  Packers | Davante Adams ready to bounce back    Thu May 26, 10:58 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams said he wasn't proud of his performance last season, but he plans to prove to the team and to himself what he is capable of in 2016.

Footballguys view: He can help himself by improving his concentration. Adams is a good athlete who can get open, but there are sometimes when he struggles to catch a cold. With Jordy Nelson back, we can't see Adams getting many looks...even if he wins the WR3 job behind Nelson and Randall Cobb.

  Packers | Two roster moves made    Thu May 26, 05:33 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Ryan X. Williams was waived Thursday, May 26. Undrafted free-agent QB Marquise X. Williams (North Carolina) was subsequently signed.

Footballguys view: Much like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic, this just gives the guy in charge of the roster something to do. Ultimately, it is unlikely either gentleman is on the roster come the end of August.


  Packers | Eddie Lacy still has weight issue?    Wed May 25, 02:10 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy still weighs 'in the 240s,' according to a source. Lacy did P90X workouts in the offseason and turned to basketball and boxing, too. It was reported back in April that Lacy had already lost 15 to 18 pounds. Head coach Mike McCarthy characterized Lacy's condition as 'so far, so good.' 'Eddie will be fine,' McCarthy said. 'I believe he'll hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on.'

Footballguys view: The weight is an issue, and Lacy has worked hard this offseason to get into better shape. However, Lacy just needs to stay healthy and produce. If he can do that, the "Fat Eddie Lacy" talk will die down.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson is on schedule    Tue May 24, 06:48 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is right on schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. It's still unclear if Nelson will participate in organized team activities.

Footballguys view: Getting Nelson back will be a huge boost for the Packers passing game. They just weren't the same without him in 2015. With Nelson back on the field, things should open up for WR Randall Cobb. He's a top-10 fantasy WR when healthy, and his current ADP (WR8, 2.02) in 12-team PPR leagues backs that up.

  Packers | Clay Matthews returning to OLB    Mon May 23, 09:10 AM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews will return to outside linebacker in 2016.

Footballguys view: Fantastic! Matthews can play inside, but he truly thrives on the outside as a pass-rusher for the Packers. Last year, Matthews had only 6.5 sacks rushing from the inside. He could double that number this year if the team is able to move him back outside.

  Packers | Three rookies sign pacts with Pack    Fri May 6, 11:09 PM

The Green Bay Packers and LB Blake Martinez agreed to a four-year contract Friday, May 6. He was selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft, No. 131 overall. The team also agreed to terms with DE Dean Lowry, a fourth-round pick, and OT Kyle Murphy, a sixth-round selection.

Footballguys view: Measuring in at 6'6" Lowry is a lunch-pail guy who plays with a lot of heart and hustle. Martinez is a physical defender who loves contact and arrives at the ball-carrier with nasty intentions.

  Packers | Trevor Davis signs pact with Packers    Thu May 5, 02:47 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Trevor Davis signed his rookie contract Thursday, May 5.

Footballguys view: Davis is a great return man and he should be able to work in that role for the Packers as a pro. He'll give the team depth at the WR position, but his greatest asset is his quickness and ability to make defenders miss.

  Packers | Davante Adams may not make team    Tue May 3, 03:09 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams' roster spot is not a lock for the 2016 season, in the opinion of Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. WRs Jared Abbrederis, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis and Trevor Davis are also not guaranteed roster spots.

Footballguys view: It's certainly possible as Adams is not a lock for the final roster. Without Jordy Nelson last year, the opportunity was there for Adams to do more and he failed miserably. He ended the season as the 83rd ranked WR in standard scoring fantasy leagues with 50 catches, 483 yards and only one touchdown. Adams will have to prove himself this year as the Packers have a talented group of WRs behind Nelson and Randall Cobb.

  Packers | Green Bay moves up in second round    Fri Apr 29, 08:33 PM

The Green Bay Packers have acquired the 48th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft from the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the 57th overall pick, 125th overall pick and 248th overall pick in the draft. The Packers picked OT Jason Spriggs with the selection.

  Packers | Green Bay takes Jason Spriggs    Fri Apr 29, 08:27 PM

The Green Bay Packers selected Indiana OT Jason Spriggs with the No. 48 overall pick in the second round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29. The Packers traded up with the Indianapolis Colts for this selection.

Footballguys view: The Packers always need line help and have four lineman in contract years. Spriggs is an athletic tackle who might start off as a guard.

  Packers | Kenny Clark expected to start    Fri Apr 29, 05:33 PM

Green Bay Packers DT Kenny Clark is expected to be the starting nose tackle in 2016. Clark will be asked to stop the running game and contribute on some passing downs.

Footballguys view: The run defense was a mess last season, so the Packers are hoping this will signal a change of luck. They have other needs on defense but there is a long way to go in the draft so they can address them.

  Packers | Kenny Clark goes at No. 27    Thu Apr 28, 11:11 PM

The Green Bay Packers selected UCLA DT Kenny Clark with the 27th overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28.

Footballguys view: The Packers need to firm up their middle to stop the run and they did just that. he can also rush the passer, which may help free up Clay Matthews from last year's duties at middle linebacker.

  Packers | Offensive tackle could be an option     Thu Apr 28, 04:52 PM

Green Bay Packers OT David Bakhtiari is in the final year of his contract and could move inside to offensive guard, thus prompting the Packers to consider drafting an offensive tackle in the NFL Draft, according to Tony Pauline of WalterFootball.com.

Footballguys view: There's no shortage of ways the Packers can go, but they are always in the market for offensive line talent. We also think an edge rusher is possible as they can then allow Clay Matthews to move back outside.

  Packers | Lerentee McCray signs    Mon Apr 18, 05:06 PM

Free-agent LB Lerentee McCray (Broncos) signed an undisclosed deal with the Green Bay Packers Monday, April 18.

Footballguys view: McCray always flashed in training camp with the Broncos, but he has yet to translate that to the field. He's a good pass-rusher and athletic enough to excel in coverage from the linebacker position. We'll see if he can stay healthy and thrive with the Packers.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy impresses teammates    Mon Apr 18, 04:22 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy impressed teammates with his physical transformation on the first day of the offseason program Monday, April 19. QB Aaron Rodgers, WR Jordy Nelson and DL Mike Daniels all said Lacy looked good. Lacy is in better shape heading into the 2016 season after his well-documented P90X workouts.

Footballguys view: "Fat" Eddie Lacy may be a thing of the past. He's taken this offseason to show dedication to his conditioning, and it could carry over into the regular season with better production. We'll be anxiously watching a slimmer version of Lacy in the preseason.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) fully participated in offseason workouts Monday, April 18, and said that his next step will be running routes. It is not known if Nelson will be able to participate in organized team activities.

Footballguys view: Getting a healthy Nelson back is going to provide a huge boost for the Packers offense. Expect better numbers from QB Aaron Rodgers and fellow WR Randall Cobb because of Nelson's presence.

  Packers | Ty Montgomery will be limited    Sat Apr 16, 10:23 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) has been cleared to sprint but will be limited when the team starts their offseason workouts Monday, April 18.

Footballguys view: We've got some love for Montgomery in deep dynasty leagues. His game is all about run-after-the-catch ability, and in an offense with QB Aaron Rodgers slinging the rock fantasy owners should consider him a player with upside.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy ready to prove himself    Tue Apr 12, 02:44 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has worked his way into better shape this offseason, and the people around Lacy believe the Packers are going to be happy with what they see when Lacy reports to the offseason program, according to NFL Network's Albert Breer. Breer said Lacy has redistributed weight from his midsection to his shoulders and arms. Lacy has slimmed down over the last two months in large part because of P90X workouts.

Footballguys view: Lacy is getting rocked up, but will it translate to better production on the field? It certainly could, so we'll be watching his training camp progress through the preseason with great interest. The talent and role is there for Lacy to be a top-12 fantasy RB.

  Packers | Green Bay eyeing Ronnie Hillman    Mon Mar 28, 03:18 PM

Free-agent RB Ronnie Hillman (Broncos) is one running back the Green Bay Packers have shown interest in.

Footballguys view: Hillman has gotten zero interest on the open market to this point. He's not a feature back, but he's got the speed to at least work in a RBBC. The Packers brought back James Starks and Eddie Lacy finally seems serious about his conditioning. We'll see if they make a move to add the speedster.

  Packers | Jared Cook signs     Mon Mar 28, 11:06 AM

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Rams) signed a one-year, $3.6 million deal with the Green Bay Packers Monday, March 28.

Footballguys view: We're interested by this move from a fantasy perspective. Cook has the size/strength/speed combination to be one of the best in the game, but he's never lived up to his potential. Perhaps playing with Aaron Rodgers will do just that. He's an interesting late-round flier who could pay off like a TE1 for fantasy owners in 2016.

  Packers | Jared Cook headed to Green Bay    Mon Mar 28, 09:10 AM

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Rams) is set to sign with the Green Bay Packers Monday, March 28.

Footballguys view: An interesting move for the Packers here. For years and years they've been looking for TE help, and Cook has always had intriguing upside. Cook has great size and he can rip the seam to take the top off the defense. However, he's never quite played up to his potential. Perhaps finally getting away from the mundane Jeff Fisher offense (and bad QB situations) could help Cook reach a higher production level.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy staying fit     Thu Mar 24, 04:12 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy looks to be staying fit with his PX90 workouts this offseason. Lacy and one of his fans recently took a picture together. The fan said Lacy looked fit and like he has lost a lot of weight. The fan also said that he is 5-9, 185 pounds and that Lacy is much thinner than him.

Footballguys view: Lacy was terrible last year (or as Charles Barkley says, TUUUUUUUURBLE) but if he can stay slim and focused, we think he could be back to being a solid RB1 in the 2016 NFL season.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers recovering nicely    Wed Mar 23, 12:15 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) is on track to work out with minimal limitations during the start of the offseason program next month after having offseason knee surgery. His recovery has gone off without any setbacks, and he's 'running around,' according to a source at the NFL annual meetings. Rodgers' surgery was 'just a cleanup,' and head coach Mike McCarthy doesn't think Rodgers will be limited this offseason.

Footballguys view: Rodgers played through a rough leg injury in 2014 and should be considered more than durable enough to pass the test as an NFL quarterback. This shouldn't affect his fantasy stock.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule    Wed Mar 23, 12:12 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is doing well in his rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, and head coach Mike McCarthy said Nelson has been running.

Footballguys view: Nelson is going in the late second round of early drafts, but he is creeping back toward late first/early second value with each positive note. Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb should also benefit from his return.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy keeps progressing    Tue Mar 22, 06:29 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has continued his P90X workout program and the reports back to head coach Mike McCarthy have been good so far. McCarthy said he hasn't met with Lacy since the end of the season, but new running backs coach Ben Sirmans has been keeping in regular contact with Lacy while updating McCarthy.

Footballguys view: P90X is what turned our very own Clayton Gray into a mean machine, and it could do the same for Lacy...if he keeps away from the buffet. Lacy needs to reshape his physique if he wants to play up to his potential after coming off a down 2015.

  Packers | James Jones won't be re-signed    Mon Mar 21, 06:25 PM

Free-agent WR James Jones' (Packers) representative has been told the Green Bay Packers are not interested in re-signing the wide receiver because of the number of young wide receivers they have on their roster.

Footballguys view: The Packers are jam-packed at the position, but Jones has established good chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers. He's unlikely to be as successful anywhere else (as he's already proven with the Raiders and Giants).

  Packers | James Starks re-signs with Packers    Fri Mar 18, 08:59 AM

Free-agent RB James Starks (Packers) re-signed with the Green Bay Packers Friday, March 18, on an undisclosed contract.

Footballguys view: Starks is a swift back with the size to wear down an opponent. He's good in space and can be effectively used as a receiver out of the backfield. Starks will once again push Eddie Lacy for the starting job in Green Bay.
