  Packers | Clay Matthews unlikely to do much during workouts    Wed Apr 16, 04:06 PM

Green Bay Packers LB Clay Matthews (thumb) said he likely will be limited during offseason workouts because of his surgically repaired thumb.

Footballguys view: The team doesn't need Matthews to re-aggravate the injury by doing too much. They will limit him up to and including training camp if necessary.

  Packers | Had interest in Josh Freeman    Wed Apr 16, 12:53 PM

The Green Bay Packers would have had interest in New York Giants QB Josh Freeman if QB Matt Flynn did not re-sign with the team.

Footballguys view: Why? Backup quarterbacks need to be ready to start when the opportunity arises. Freeman didn't prepare enough when he was cemented as the starter with the Buccaneers. He certainly didn't look good during his brief time with the Vikings either.

  Packers | Matt Flynn to compete for backup job    Tue Apr 15, 03:17 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Flynn is expected to compete with QB Scott Tolzien for the backup quarterback job, but head coach Mike McCarthy anticipates keeping three QBs on the roster to open the season.

Footballguys view: Flynn should be able to hold off Tolzien for the primary backup job behind Aaron Rodgers.

  Packers | Matt Flynn re-signs    Tue Apr 15, 02:15 PM

The Green Bay Packers agreed to terms on an undisclosed deal to re-sign QB Matt Flynn Tuesday, April 15, according to a source.

Footballguys view: It's a smart move for both sides. The Packers needed a quality backup behind Aaron Rodgers, and Flynn knows the system well. Flynn needed a new job as he's clearly a backup-caliber player who wasn't going to get a starting opportunity elsewhere.

  Packers | Interested in Brock Jensen     Wed Apr 9, 01:05 PM

The Green Bay Packers are scheduled to conduct a private workout with North Dakota State QB Brock Jensen April 15. The team is also scheduled to meet with Jensen before the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The Packers have a history of developing quarterbacks dating back to the days when Mark Brunell backed up Brett Favre. Jensen was 8th in the NCAA last year with 34 touchdown passes. He's a late-round pick or priority free agent.

  Packers | Andrew Quarless top TE for now    Fri Apr 4, 09:32 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless is considered the leading candidate to be the starting tight end in 2014 but could be beaten out by another player for the job.

Footballguys view: Quarless is has straight-line athleticism, but he's yet to do much as a pro. We could see the Packers add more talent at the tight end position in the 2014 NFL draft.

  Packers | Jarrett Boykin expected to be No. 3 WR    Fri Apr 4, 09:32 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin is expected to be the team's No. 3 wide receiver this upcoming season.

Footballguys view: An interesting note for dynasty owners here. Boykin will take the place of James Jones (Raiders) in the lineup for the Packers. He's got the size to be a red-zone threat, and he's got the speed to do something with the ball after the catch. Boykin was targeted 83 times last year and had 49 catches for 681 yards and three touchdowns. Expect those numbers to rise in 2014.

  Packers | Re-sign John Kuhn     Thu Apr 3, 01:25 PM

The Green Bay Packers re-signed FB John Kuhn to a one-year contract worth just over $1 million Thursday, April 3.

Footballguys view: Kuhn is one of the better players at a position on the ropes. He blocks well and can carry the ball on occasion but any more than this contract would have been excessive.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers helps team gain cap space    Sun Mar 30, 03:05 AM

Because Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers missed seven games with a fractured left clavicle in 2013, an insurance policy kicked in on part of his contract. That means the team will gain $350,000 in cap space for each season from 2014 to the end of the deal in 2017.

  Packers | Have high hopes for Jarrett Boykin    Wed Mar 26, 07:08 PM

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said he 'fully expects' WR Jarrett Boykin to 'step up' in 2014 now that WR James Jones has moved on.

Footballguys view: Boykin was on pace for a 65-900-4 season last year despite contributing nothing until Randall Cobb went down in the Packers fifth game of the season. He'll be good depth with WR2/WR3 upside if Cobb or Jordy Nelson miss time this year.

  Packers | Coach thinks Micah Hyde can be every-down player    Wed Mar 26, 06:13 PM

  Packers | Decision on Jermichael Finley up to doctors    Tue Mar 25, 09:34 PM

Free-agent TE Jermichael Finley (Packers) (neck) has been working out in full and there are reports he looks in tip-top shape. However, head coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday, Jan. 25, that a decision to potentially bring him back will come down to how the team doctors feel about the risk of re-injury. 'It's great to hear that he's training and feels great and that's a big part of rehab,' McCarthy said. 'You feel good and everything, but you have to trust the information that's available to the doctors. I think you have to really be smart with those types of injuries.'

Footballguys view: Finley could still be months away from being cleared according to reports earlier this week, so it's no sure thing that he'll have any fantasy impact this year.

  Packers | Johnathan Franklin still recovering    Tue Mar 25, 09:33 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Johnathan Franklin (neck) is still recovering from a neck injury which landed him on the season-ending Injured Reserve late in the year. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Franklin did not undergo surgery, and he only knows a limited amount about his rehab because Franklin has not met with doctors lately.

Footballguys view: This could also be a part of why the Packers re-signed James Starks. Franklin was considered a possible fourth-round steal in last year's draft, but he barely made the team and was left in Eddie Lacy's dust, although Franklin did shine in limited duty vs. Cincinnati last year.

The Green Bay Packers are open to re-signing free-agent DE Johnny Jolly (neck). He is rehabbing from neck surgery, and was recently cleared for more extensive workouts. He might be ready in time for training camp if his surgery mends well and X-rays show there is no unusual risk of his spinal cord being damaged.

  Packers | B.J. Raji will play at nose tackle    Tue Mar 25, 03:26 PM

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said DT B.J. Raji will play at nose tackle in 2014.

Footballguys view: This move should jump start Raji's stalled career. He hasn't recorded a sack since 2011 and was an odd fit at defensive end in the Packers 3-4 defense.

  Packers | James Starks contract details     Thu Mar 20, 02:06 PM

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers RB James Starks agreed to a two-year, $3.165 million contract.

Footballguys view: Starks has some skill but a propensity for injury. He's a solid choice to back up Eddie Lacy, and it doesn't exactly resonate any confidence in Jonathan Franklin. Starks is a deep bench guy for fantasy, that's about all.

The Green Bay Packers agreed to an undisclosed two-year deal to re-sign RB James Starks Tuesday, March 18, according to a source.

  Packers | B.J. Raji terms    Tue Mar 18, 10:38 AM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers DT B.J. Raji received a one-year, $4 million deal with $500,000 in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: It will be interesting to see if Dom Capers can get more out of Raji. He's a disruptive player, but Raji hasn't had a sack since 2011. Capers 3-4 is an odd fit for a player like Raji, and we'll have to see if he can be more creative in 2014.

Updating a previous report, Green Bay Packers DE Julius Peppers agreed to terms on a three-year deal that is expected to pay up to $30 million. Peppers will get $8.5 million in the first year.

Footballguys view: There's likely little guaranteed money after 2014. Peppers is 34-years old, and committing to him long-term would be unusual for Packers general manager Ted Thompson.

  Packers | B.J. Raji to move back to old position    Fri Mar 14, 05:58 PM

Green Bay Packers DT B.J. Raji will be allowed to move back to his natural position, nose tackle, this year. The decision to move him back to nose tackle was likely the reason that Raji decided to re-sign. 'When we went playing a balanced front, (we would) play Raji in the middle and Pickett out at the end. Tilted nose is a little to one side or the other (of the center). That's a technique you have to work on to be able to deal with both the guard's and the center's blocks,' defensive coordinator Dom Capers said.

Footballguys view: Raji was an odd fit in Capers' system at defensive end. Moving back to nose is the right move for him. Perhaps he can get back to creating interior pressure like he did early in his career. Raji hasn't had a sack since 2011.

  Packers | B.J. Raji accepts deal to return    Fri Mar 14, 03:35 PM
