  Packers | Chris Banjo re-signed    Fri Apr 17, 07:45 PM

Green Bay Packers exclusive rights free-agent FS Chris Banjo re-signed with the team Friday, April 17. Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Banjo was originally an undrafted free agent out of SMU for the Jaguars in 2013. He spent last season on the practice squad for Green Bay.


  Packers | Andrew Quarless looking to improve    Thu Apr 16, 02:10 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless said he has been working on improving his game this offseason and believes he can be a productive part of the offense. 'I consider myself the top echelon of tight ends,' Quarless said. 'That's really where I see myself and that's really where I'm trying to take it. A couple other guys like (Rob Gronkowski) and a couple guys who are up there. I put myself in that bracket. That's definitely where I'm training to be.'

Footballguys view: Quarless might be a little too excited about himself. He's athletic and talented, but has yet to show anything like "upper echelon" talent. We think he could be a solid TE2 for fantasy, and his ceiling is capped by the talented receivers on the roster.

  Packers | Will look at Jordan Leslie    Thu Apr 16, 02:57 AM

BYU WR Jordan Leslie will visit the Green Bay Packers prior to the NFL Draft, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: The Packers are always looking for the next wide receiver to add to a talented group. It gives them leverage against free agents who might want more money than they would like to pay. Leslie played for UTEP for three years before moving to BYU for his last season.

  Packers | Matt Blanchard signed    Wed Apr 15, 02:40 PM

Free-agent QB Matt Blanchard (Panthers) signed with the Green Bay Packers Wednesday, April 15. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Can you say camp arm? We know you can. Blanchard has been with the Panthers and the Bears on the practice squad. Last year he was placed on Injured Reserve after suffering a concussion over the summer. With the Packers, he'll serve as a camp arm for the offseason and he's a longshot to make the final roster.

  Packers | Match offer to Sean Richardson    Mon Apr 13, 01:54 PM

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent SS Sean Richardson will remain with the Packers after the team decided to match the one-year, $2.55 million offer he signed with the Oakland Raiders, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Packers would have received zero compensation had they lost Richardson to the Raiders as he was tendered as an original round RFA. Richardson was an undrafted player, but the Packers felt he has more to offer in the future as an in-the-box safety and special teams player.

  Packers | John Kuhn re-signed    Mon Apr 13, 01:42 PM

Free-agent FB John Kuhn (Packers) signed a one-year deal worth $870,000 with the Green Bay Packers Monday, April 13. The deal includes a workout bonus as well as a Pro Bowl bonus.

Footballguys view: Kuhn! Even though he was on the open market, we always expected Kuhn to return to Green Bay. He'll vulture a few touchdowns away from Eddie Lacy once again this year.

  Packers | Will need to make a decision on Sean Richardson    Sun Apr 12, 09:54 AM

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent SS Sean Richardson signed an offer sheet with the Oakland Raiders, and the Packers have until Monday, April 13, to inform him if they will match the offer. One league executive believes it is 50-50 as to whether the team will match the offer.

Footballguys view: Richardson is an incredibly fast strong safety who can play in the box to stuff the run. He's got technique issues to clean up, but Richardson has upside if he continues to develop. We'll see if the Packers match the offer.

  Packers | Don Barclay signs tender    Thu Apr 9, 02:07 PM

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent OT Don Barclay signed his one-year tender offer Thursday, April 9. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Just a backup, Barclay can step in at tackle if someone goes down to injury, which given the Green Bay Packers history, might have already happened.

  Packers | Aaron Adams waived    Wed Apr 8, 05:15 PM

Green Bay Packers OT Aaron Adams (undisclosed) was placed on no-recall waivers with a failed physical designation Wednesday, April 8.

Footballguys view: Adams was first injured when he tore his ACL during the 2014 training camp, and he spent the entire 2014 season on Injured Reserve. He has been with the Packers since 2013, when he was spent that entire year on the team's Practice Squad.


  Packers | Bryce Petty to visit    Thu Apr 2, 04:14 PM

Former Baylor QB Bryce Petty will visit the Green Bay Packers prior to the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Packers only have Aaron Rodgers and Scott Tolzien but nobody else. Last time they did that, Rodgers got hurt and the season just about went down the tubes. Petty could develop into a decent backup, though of course if Rodgers went down neither Petty nor Tolzien would be able to replace his production.

  Packers | Bryce Petty to meet with Green Bay    Thu Apr 2, 09:43 AM

Baylor QB Bryce Petty has a meeting set up with the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: The Packers used to be the team who found all the QB gems in the draft. Guys like Mark Brunnell, Matt Hasselbeck, Aaron Brooks...and even Kurt Warner spent time with the Packers before starring elsewhere. After several draft busts like Brian Brohm, the Packers are no longer the team that finds gem backup QBs. Petty is a huge project, and it will take a year or two before he's ready to take a snap (from under center, gasp!) at the NFL level.

  Packers | B.J. Raji offered deal    Mon Mar 30, 01:29 PM

Free-agent DT B.J. Raji (Packers) was offered a one-year deal for less than $2 million by the Green Bay Packers, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.

Footballguys view: Raji hasn't looked good in some time, and that's why the market has been so cool for his services.

  Packers | Letroy Guion agrees to return    Mon Mar 30, 09:14 AM

Free-agent DT Letroy Guion agreed to re-sign with the Green Bay Packers Monday, March 30. Guion agreed to a one-year deal that should be finalized Tuesday, April 1.

Footballguys view: This was the Packers plan all along. A delay was likely caused by Guion's drug arrest earlier this year. Charges were dropped, and Guion only had to pay a fine. A visit to the Seahawks likely prompted the Packers to make a move to keep Guion around for 2015.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy will see limited touches    Sun Mar 29, 01:08 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy will have his touches limited next season in order to keep him healthy during the season, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'I'm conscientious of how many times each guy touches the ball, how much each guy plays, especially the running back. I think you have to be smart there,' McCarthy said. McCarthy indicated he is not looking for Lacy to abandon his physical running style.

Footballguys view: An important note for fantasy owners here. Lacy came out of Alabama with durability concerns, and the Packers are wise to save him up a little bit for what should be another run into the playoffs. Remember that last season, Lacy only saw more than 20 carries in a game three times all year long. His workload should be similar this year.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers to run pistol often?    Fri Mar 27, 12:47 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers may be regularly in the pistol formation in 2015, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. The Packers used the formation often after Rodgers suffered a calf injury in 2014 in order to take stress off his leg. 'I like the pistol,' McCarthy said during a break at the NFL owners meetings this week. 'I think there's a lot of value regardless of the injury to Aaron. I know he likes it. There's a place for it year-round in your offense.' McCarthy hasn't used the pistol formation for a read-option offense, and it's unlikely McCarthy will ask Rodgers to become a read-option quarterback.

Footballguys view: No matter what offense Rodgers runs, he's going to be a top quarterback for fantasy owners once again this year. The pistol formation would add an element of unpredictability to the Packers offense.

  Packers | Not rushing to re-sign John Kuhn    Fri Mar 27, 12:47 PM

Free-agent FB John Kuhn (Packers) isn't a top priority for the Green Bay Packers, but head coach Mike McCarthy said they are still interested in bringing him back.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine Kuhn playing anywhere else. The Packers will likely bring him back later in the year.

  Packers | Kyle Sebetic signs    Wed Mar 25, 04:38 PM

Free-agent S Kyle Sebetic (Giants) signed an undisclosed deal with the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Sebetic was a rookie last year who spent a little bit of time on the Giants practice squad last season. At the University of Dayton, Sebetic was a four-year starter at cornerback, recording five interceptions, 18 pass breakups, and a forced fumble. He competed at the veteran combine last week, and the Packers must've liked what they saw.

  Packers | Letroy Guion avoids prosecution    Wed Mar 25, 01:53 AM

Free-agent NT Letroy Guion (Packers) avoided prosecution Tuesday, March 24, and he is now aiming to continue his NFL career. He will not face probation or have a criminal record after a Feb. 3 arrest. The Green Bay Packers are interested in bringing the free agent back.

  Packers | More responsibilities for Aaron Rodgers    Tue Mar 24, 04:23 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has had more freedom to change plays pre-snap in recent seasons, and head coach Mike McCarthy giving up play-calling duties puts even more responsibility in the hands of Rodgers in running the offense.

Footballguys view: McCarthy and assistant coach Tom Clements will have more preparation to do during the week to make sure Rodgers has plenty of pre-snap options at his disposal. However, it's hard to know how the offensive setup will work with Clements as the primary playcaller.

  Packers | Greg Jennings not expected back with GB    Fri Mar 20, 07:51 PM

Free-agent WR Greg Jennings (Vikings) likely will not sign with the Green Bay Packers this offseason unless he is willing to accept the No. 4 wide receiver job, in the opinion of Pete Dougherty, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Footballguys view: Nah, Jennings has more left in the tank than some WR4 on his old team. We think the Panthers could end up nabbing the veteran receiver.

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga update    Wed Mar 11, 08:49 AM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers OT Bryan Bulaga re-signed with the Packers on a five-year, $33.75 million deal Tuesday, March 10.

  Packers | Show interest in B.J. Raji    Tue Mar 10, 09:58 PM

The Green Bay Packers have shown an interest in re-signing DT B.J. Raji (biceps).

Footballguys view: He missed the 2014 season due to a biceps injury. Coming off this injury, it's difficult to imagine the Packers giving him much money...and they probably won't commit to him with a long-term deal. Sign him cheap on a "prove it" contract and see if Raji can get back to the player he was a few years ago.

  Packers | Interested in Terrance Knighton?    Tue Mar 10, 09:58 PM

Free-agent DT Terrance Knighton (Broncos) has been the subject of "a few discussions" for the Green Bay Packers management, according to a source. However, nothing appears imminent.

Footballguys view: Leave it to Ted Thompson. Knighton has had several teams interested in his services, but he must have priced himself a bit out of the market as nobody has committed. The Packers have waited patiently for the right time to strike. They are coming to the party late, but they might be the team that lands Knighton.

  Packers | Working to keep Bryan Bulaga    Tue Mar 10, 12:18 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent OT Bryan Bulaga is getting heavy interest from the team to re-sign him. Bulaga would take less to sign with the team.

Footballguys view: Bulaga is reportedly seeking a deal that would pay him around $8 million annually. We'll see if the Packers can convince him to stay for a lower price like they did WR Randall Cobb last week.

  Packers | DuJuan Harris not tendered offer    Mon Mar 9, 07:41 PM

Green Bay Packers exclusive rights free-agent RB DuJuan Harris will not receive a tender offer from the Packers and will become an unrestricted free agent.

Footballguys view: Harris never got a chance after getting banged up for the Packers in 2013. He's a good receiving back with the intent to be a between-the-tackles runner.

  Packers | Will let Matt Flynn walk    Mon Mar 9, 03:01 AM

Free-agent QB Matt Flynn (Packers) will be allowed to pursue other opportunities now that QB Scott Tolzien has been re-signed by the Green Bay Packers, according to sources.

Footballguys view: We can't imagine the market being white-hot for Flynn's services. Some team may be interested in adding Flynn as a backup. Outside of Green Bay, Flynn has not looked good.

  Packers | Scott Tolzien agrees to new deal    Sun Mar 8, 02:30 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent QB Scott Tolzien has agreed to a new one-year deal with the Packers worth $1.35 million, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Tolzien will continue to back up Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay. His dynasty value is low.

  Packers | Bryan Bulaga looking for big money    Sun Mar 8, 09:50 AM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent OT Bryan Bulaga is believed to be looking for between $7 million and $8 million per season in his new contract, according to sources. The Packers are not interested in paying Bulaga $7 million per season.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys were able to keep right tackle Doug Free for $5 million annually (with only $6 million guaranteed over three years). The Texans were able to keep right tackle Derek Newton for around $5.3 million annually (with $10 million guaranteed over four years). If Bulaga wants that kind of money we'll say "good luck with that." The market has been established, and right tackles are getting that level of pay. We'll see if Bulaga gets what he wants here.

  Packers | Randall Cobb turned down several offers     Sat Mar 7, 11:11 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb turned down at least six offers before choosing to re-sign with the Packers Saturday, March 7, including some offers worth more money.

Footballguys view: Cobb wanted to stay with the Packers, and the numbers had to be close...even if other offers were somewhat greater. It's a great move for both sides. Cobb should continue to put up WR1 numbers for fantasy owners in 2015.

  Packers | Randall Cobb to return to Packers    Sat Mar 7, 10:28 PM

Free-agent WR Randall Cobb has agreed to a four-year, $40-million deal to return to the Green Bay Packers, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Cobb will receive $17 million guaranteed as part of his new four-year, $40 million deal. It's a good move for the Packers as they keep this explosive playmaker on the team. The price isn't too outrageous as Cobb took less money to stay in Green Bay. His fantasy numbers will be WR1 level once again in 2015.

  Packers | Randall Cobb to make less if he returns    Sat Mar 7, 02:35 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said he would be making $1 - 2 million less per year if he re-signs with the Packers.

  Packers | Tramon Williams rejects GB offer    Thu Mar 5, 01:28 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent CB Tramon Williams received a two-year contract extension worth $8 million from the Packers, but he rejected it, according to a source. Williams prefers to return to Green Bay, but he's looking for a three- or four-year deal that averages at least $5 million. He also wants significant guaranteed money in a deal in case he is released.

Footballguys view: Rumor has it that Williams is taking his talents to Seattle, but we'll see if that happens. He wants a long-term contract so wherever he goes, expect that to be the critical factor.

  Packers | Packers, Randall Cobb to part?    Wed Mar 4, 10:27 PM

The Green Bay Packers are working to re-sign impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb, and have exclusive negotiating rights until Saturday, March 7, at 3pm, and exclusive signing rights until Tuesday, March 10. The team has been working to hammer out a deal with Cobb for six months. With WRs Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams under contract, the team did not feel the need to use a franchise tag on Cobb like the Dallas Cowboys did with WR Dez Bryant, and the Denver Broncos did with WR Demaryius Thomas. According to sources, the team said they would sign Cobb to a five-year deal averaging $8-9 million per season, and his agent said he feels confident they can get more on the open market.

Footballguys view: The two sides have been working on something, but no agreement has been reached. We are likely to see more than a few teams interested in the talented wide receiver.

  Packers | Randall Cobb unlikely to rejoin Packers    Wed Mar 4, 10:29 AM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is unlikely to re-sign with the team, barring something unexpected.

Footballguys view: When no long-term deal was done, this move became evident. The Packers have attempted to sign Cobb for six months with little room for optimism. The Packers have tried to sign him to a five-year deal worth around $8-$9 million per year.

  Packers | Randall Cobb deal not imminent    Sat Feb 28, 02:10 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb may not be re-signed in the near future, but a new deal still remains a top priority for the Packers, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Cobb could earn a new contract that pays him around $9 million annually. That's a fair price for a player like Cobb. No deal is imminent right now, but the Packers have until March 10th before the new league year begins and Cobb hits the open market.

Green Bay Packers LB A.J. Hawk was released Wednesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: No surprise here given Hawk's price tag and his recent play. The move will save them $3.5 million against the salary cap in 2015. We could see a team like the Chiefs or the Broncos interested in the veteran inside linebacker even though he's not the player he used to be.

Green Bay Packers LB A.J. Hawk (ankle) had surgery to remove several bone spurs from his ankle after the season. Hawk lost weight to try and compensate for the injury later in the season.

Footballguys view: Hawk still hasn't quite fulfilled the promise he once held and the Packers are going to have to look at other options to fill the middle of the defense at some point. As it stands though, Hawk might be able to play at a higher level than he did last season if he's 100% healthy.
