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.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson takes part in workout    Mon Apr 18, 01:38 PM

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 | Chris Banjo re-signs    Fri Apr 15, 05:42 PM

Green Bay Packers exclusive rights free-agent FS Chris Banjo signed his tender offer Friday, April 15. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.


  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 deal for two years    Fri Mar 18, 10:09 AM

Updating an earlier report, Green Bay Packers RB James Starks' deal is for two years and $6 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Starks stays with the Packers where he could be the lead back over Eddie Lacy. It's a good move for both sides.

  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.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson running routes soon?    Thu Mar 17, 11:15 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) said he has had no setbacks in his rehabilitation from knee surgery, and he will find out in the next couple of weeks when he can begin running routes.

Footballguys view: We'll be watching this situation closely leading up to the 2016 season. Getting Nelson back will be a huge boost for QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers passing game.

Free-agent TE Jared Cook (Rams) visited the Green Bay Packers Tuesday, March 15, according to a source.

  Packers | Matt Forte being recruited to Packers    Mon Mar 7, 09:23 AM

Chicago Bears impending free-agent RB Matt Forte is being recruited to the Green Bay Packers by LB Julius Peppers.

Footballguys view: Adding an all-purpose back like Forte would make a lot of sense for the Packers. Forte is arguably the best back available on the open market, so he may come with a premium price the Packers don't want to pay.

  Packers | James Jones being ignored?    Sat Mar 5, 08:29 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR James Jones said teams are trying to 'brush over' his name when talking about free agents at his position.

  Packers | James Jones wants to return to Pack    Fri Mar 4, 05:17 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR James Jones said he would love to re-sign with the Packers this offseason and finish his career there. He also said he plans on playing another three or four seasons.

Footballguys view: Jones should just stay with the Packers. When he's left, he hasn't done much...only to return to Green Bay and shine. Jones has a connection with QB Aaron Rodgers, and the team could continue to feature him as a red-zone threat.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy looks slimmer     Thu Mar 3, 07:19 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy seems to have trimmed down this offseason after taking up an offer from P90X creator Tony Horton. Lacy took some heat from head coach Mike McCarthy following the regular season for not being in shape.

Footballguys view: Like most of us, the key for Lacy isn't getting the weight off but keeping it off. If he can do that, though, we expect him to end up as a solid fantasy RB1 next season.

  Packers | Jeff Janis a work in progress    Wed Mar 2, 01:04 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis needs to improve his route running and learn how to better read defenses in the NFL. 'He kind of has a stiffness there, and Luke, he took that on about Week 7 there after the bye week, and you could see him improve. He just needs things like that. You only get so much time with your players compared to prior years, but I'm hoping he takes another big step.' Head coach Mike McCarthy said.

Footballguys view: Janis has been a favorite project for a lot of Green Bay fans, but seems unable to reach his potential. He has moments but we're not as excited as Packers fans. With Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb back together, Janis' opportunities may be limited as well.

  Packers | Ty Montgomery questionable for camp    Fri Feb 26, 03:17 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery (ankle) may not be ready for the start of training camp because of the ankle surgery he had during the season.

Footballguys view: The Packers are going to be cautious with Montgomery. The WR3 spot in Green Bay is up in the air with Davante Adams disappointing last season. Adams, Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis and Montgomery will all compete for that spot in 2016. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are the top two receivers.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy weight loss corrected    Fri Feb 26, 02:08 PM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the team did not ask RB Eddie Lacy to lose as much as 30 pounds this offseason. 'The Green Bay Packers have never, ever asked him to lose 30 pounds,' McCarthy said. 'That's totally out of the realm of what we're talking about. That's the facts there. He'll learn from this.'

Footballguys view: We think 30 pounds might be a bit too much...how about 20? Either way, Lacy needs to get "tighter" around the midsection. His stamina and production fell off this year in what has to be categorized as a disappointing season. We'll see if Lacy can bounce back for the Packers in 2016.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy devoted to weight loss     Thu Feb 25, 06:09 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy has sought help from P90X founder Tony Horton in order to get into better shape for the 2016 season. 'Eddie will take care of business,' head coach Mike McCarthy said. 'I have great confidence that he will. I think we'll see definitely a different guy in April, and more importantly in July.'

Footballguys view: Taking the weight off is a great start but as anyone who has struggled with being even somewhat overweight can tell you, keeping it off is key. Lacy has top end ability if he can control the snacking. We hope whatever he does this offseason is something he can succeed with in season as well.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers will be ready    Thu Feb 25, 02:09 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) is expected to be ready for offseason training activities (OTAs) after having a knee scope, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: As expected, and if you can get Jordy Nelson back to 100 percent while keeping Eddie Lacy off the snack table, this offense will look better than it did last season and likely be one of the best in the NFL.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule    Thu Feb 25, 12:15 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee last year. 'I'm not worried about him getting back to where he was. He's way ahead of schedule. I've already talked to him, with this fifth preseason game, about how we play him in the preseason. He'll work some in the OTAs, but I don't see him having any limitations come training camp,' head coach Mike McCarthy said.

Footballguys view: Given how the passing offense suffered in his absence, Jordy Nelson should be the team MVP for 2015. Clearly he's critical to its success. We feel great about this report and think he'll be a WR1 in fantasy next season.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy determined    Thu Feb 18, 02:30 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy sounds determined to improve in 2016, according to new running backs coach Ben Sirmans.

Footballguys view: He can't play worse, that's for sure. Fantasy GMs will be down on Lacy after this year's debacle, but watch reports coming out of Green Bay as the offseason progresses. We know he has the talent and if he puts in the work, he should be back on top.

  Packers | Green Bay to add tight end?    Mon Feb 15, 02:22 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could have a new tight end with some speed this offseason, according to ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky.

Footballguys view: The Packers have needed a real threat at tight end for years and years. They traded away the pick that became Julius Thomas in 2011, and the Packers have struggled to find a star at the position. Hunter Henry (Arkansas) is the best tight end in a poor draft class at the position. He should go off the board sometime in the second round. Veterans like Vernon Davis or Dwayne Allen could be options for the Packers in free agency. We'll be happy when Aaron Rodgers gets a real threat at TE to throw to.
