  Packers | A.J. Hawk released    Wed Feb 25, 04:39 PM

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.

  Packers | A.J. Hawk had surgery    Fri Feb 20, 10:46 AM

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.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent WR Randall Cobb is unlikely to receive a franchise tag from the team, and instead the Packers will try to work out a long-term deal.

Footballguys view: The franchise tag would come with a one-year fully guaranteed salary around $12.8 million. Discussions on an extension could take place at the NFL Scouting Combine this weekend. Cobb is reportedly seeking a deal that averages $9 million per year.

  Packers | Randall Cobb deal coming?    Mon Feb 16, 02:55 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb is reportedly seeking an average of $9 million per year for his new contract.

Footballguys view: The Packers have the salary cap room to use the franchise tag on Cobb if they need to. That tag would guarantee him a one-year salary of around $12.8 million. Most importantly, it would give the Packers until July 15th is sign Cobb to a long-term deal. However, the Packers would like to get a deal done with Cobb and not use the tag.

Green Bay Packers TE Brandon Bostick was released Monday, Feb. 16.

Footballguys view: The Packers need to find a tight end, and Bostick wasn't the guy. They could be interested in a free agent tight end like Julius Thomas (Broncos) this offseason.

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent CB Davon House said finding a starting job will be one of his priorities once free agency begins.

  Packers | Coaches torn over backup QB choice    Tue Feb 10, 02:10 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Scott Tolzien and QB Matt Flynn both have boosters among the team's assistant coaches. The coaching staff likes Tolzien's potential, but many like Flynn because he gives a 'security blanket feel' to the team. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has said he would like to see both backups retained.

Footballguys view: Tolzien's potential? Um, okay. While the choice between Tolzien and Flynn is like the choice between airline food or hospital food, at the end of the day it just doesn't matter. Neither quarterback has much developmental upside, and the Packers would be in a ton of trouble if Aaron Rodgers misses time due to injury.

  Packers | Mike McCarthy may give up play-calling    Mon Feb 9, 02:55 PM

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is leaning towards ceding play-calling duties to offensive coordinator Tom Clements next season.

Footballguys view: The Packers are in good hands either way. Former wide receivers coach Edgar Bennett was promoted to new offensive coordinator. Clements has been promoted to associate head coach with play-calling duties.

  Packers | Coaching changes made    Sun Feb 8, 04:41 PM

Green Bay Packers wide receiver coach Edgar Bennett will be promoted to offensive coordinator, per an NFL source. In addition, Tom Clements has been named an associate head coach with play-calling duties.

Footballguys view: It was always interesting that Bennett (a former Packers running back) was wide receivers coach, but he did a heckuva job with guys like Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. Congratulations to Bennett and Clements on their promotions. Clearly, the Packers are in good hands.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers says turf caused injury    Thu Feb 5, 04:52 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said the calf injury he suffered later on in the season was because of the poor surface in Tampa Bay. Rodgers said he thinks the Buccaneers' field should be looked at for improvements, adding that he hurt his shoulder in Tampa Bay in 2008 as well.

Footballguys view: The league will certainly take note here. There are a few stadiums across the league where the turf seems to be an issue. Tampa Bay would be wise to improve their turf before the 2015 season.

  Packers | Jarrett Bush hopes to return    Thu Feb 5, 12:00 AM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent CB Jarrett Bush is hopeful of finishing his career in Green Bay. However, his last contract was for three years and $5.25 million, and it's unlikely the Packers will go that high again, although the veteran's minimum for a player with 10-plus years of experience is $970,000.

Footballguys view: Bush has played well, but will the Packers pay what he thinks he's worth? Or will they hope Casey Hayward can return to the play he flashed his rookie season?

  Packers | Tramon Williams hopes for deal    Wed Feb 4, 11:59 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent CB Tramon Williams is hopeful of one more multi-year contract before his career concludes. He has said he would like to finish his career in Green Bay, but it's uncertain if the feeling is mutual.

Footballguys view: Williams has played well for the Packers, but how much does he want? And how much are the Packers willing to risk by going with a younger corner across from Morgan Burnett? We'll have to wait and see how this situation plays itself out.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers was named the 2014 NFL Most Valuable Player by the Associated Press Saturday, Jan. 31.

  Packers | John Kuhn to test market    Sat Jan 24, 12:34 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent FB John Kuhn said he would be open to re-signing with the Packers but wants to test the free-agent market before signing with a team.

Footballguys view: There's just not much of a market for fullbacks. We have a feeling Packers fans will still be hollering "Kuhn!" in 2015.

  Packers | Randall Cobb wants to re-sign    Mon Jan 19, 02:19 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said his preference is to re-sign with the team this offseason. 'Of course (I want to be back). I think I've made that obvious,' Cobb said. 'Like I've said before: This is a business. You don't know how it's going to go. What direction it's going to go in. You just have to sit around. I hope that I've put myself in the position where it'll handle itself. But only time can tell.'

Footballguys view: Cobb is set to be an unrestricted free agent this year, and the Packers would be wise to lock him down if the price is right. He's going onto the open market after setting career highs in catches (91), receiving yards (1,287) and receiving touchdowns (12). With Jordy Nelson already locked down, and Davante Adams as an up-and-coming player, we could see the Packers let Cobb explore his options in free agency.

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) said that his left knee was sore but fine Friday, Jan. 16. 'I'm not concerned,' Lacy said. 'I'm chillin'.'

Footballguys view: We feel Lacy is the key to victory for the Packers. If he can soften up the Seahawks defense, it will make things easier for Aaron Rodgers and the passing game. Teams who win in Seattle much get a good day from their rushing attack.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) is listed as probable for the team's NFC Championship game.

Footballguys view: He's not going to miss this game for any reason. However, he's not going to look like his normal self. This calf injury could limit how much (and how effectively) Rodgers scrambles to keep plays alive against the Seahawks.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy probable    Fri Jan 16, 01:56 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) is listed as probable for the NFC Championship game. Lacy looks good, according to head coach Mike McCarthy.

Footballguys view: Lacy is the key player for the Packers this Sunday. If the Packers can smash box against the Seahawks, it will protect Aaron Rodgers as he deals with a calf injury. Lacy can wear down an opponent as the game goes on, and Seattle's defense can be run on if a team is willing.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy limited Thursday    Thu Jan 15, 04:31 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 15, with a sore knee, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy said he thinks Lacy will be ready to play in the NFC Championship this weekend.

Footballguys view: Lacy isn't missing this game, so expect him to play and get a heavy load to take the pressure off Aaron Rodgers by keeping the defense honest. The Packers have a huge task in front of them, and the key to winning is using Lacy early and often. They need to soften up the Seahawks defense by running the ball and keeping pressure off Aaron Rodgers.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy will be ready to go    Thu Jan 15, 03:58 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) will be ready to go for the NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend after being limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 15, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. McCarthy said he was being conservative in limiting Lacy Thursday.

Footballguys view: The only was Lacy is missing this game is if he is kidnapped, but even then we'd expect him to show up dragging a chair he is handcuffed to, removing the blindfold as the game started. He should get leaned on quite a bit and while it won't be easy against the Seattle front seven, he should see success as long as Green Bay is committed to the run.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers limited in practice    Thu Jan 15, 02:54 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: As expected, but we saw that Rodgers was effective last week dealing with this injury, even scrambling just a little bit. He was able to find his receivers, complete passes and did a good job even though he was a bit limited. We expect him to struggle more against the blitzing Seattle defense, but he has been able to battle through that before. Still, we think his numbers will be down slightly; in part because of pressure, in part because of his injury and in part because of Green Bay running the ball to take pressure off.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy limited in practice    Thu Jan 15, 02:00 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 15.

Footballguys view: Lacy will be fine for Sunday, and we expect the team to ride him hard to help disrupt what will be a lot of blitzing by Seattle. Aaron Rodgers is not terribly mobile due to the calf injury, so quick passes and a lot of carries have to be the order of the day.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Jan. 14.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers not scared of top CB    Tue Jan 13, 09:18 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday, Jan. 13, that the team is not afraid of throwing at Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman. In Week 1, Rodgers never threw to Sherman's side, but head coach Mike McCarthy insisted this week that it was not intentional. 'You have to be aware of him,' Rodgers said. 'Not scared of him, but you have a ton of respect for him. Look at the numbers, they don't lie.'

Footballguys view: Part of the reason they didn't throw at Sherman was that Jarrett Boykin was the receiver matched up against him. This time it will be Davante Adams, who appears to be much more capable than Boykin.

'You have to be aware of him,' Rodgers said. 'Not scared of him, but you have a ton of respect for him.' WR Jordy Nelson was kept opposite of Sherman in Week 1, and Sherman never switched sides of the field. Sherman wound up covering WRs Jarrett Boykin or Davante Adams.
