  Packers | Green Bay won't drastically change offense    Tue Feb 19, 03:00 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not be asked to run a dramatically different offense than the one he has operated for most of his career, according to offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.'When you take a guy like Aaron Rodgers, who is a very good football player, I mean, he's kind of one of those guys where you can kind of pretty much do a lot of everything. I think a lot of it is going to carry over. I think some of the language will be different but it's going to be a lot of the same premises for him,' Hackett told PackersNews.com.

Footballguys view: The offense is going to be tailor-made for what Rodgers likes and wants to do. Rodgers (knee, concussion) said he will be ready for the offseason program which is great news since he'll be getting used to the new coaching staff.

  Packers | Green Bay in the market for slot help?    Thu Feb 14, 09:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent WR Golden Tate and Washington Redskins impending free-agent WR Jamison Crowder are options to fill the need the Green Bay Packers have at slot receiver, according to Bill Barnwell of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: Perhaps they could be interested in a slot guy, but they did select three WRs in the 2018 NFL draft. The Packers are going to be interesting to watch with new head coach Matt LaFleur running the show.

  Packers | Backup QB on Green Bay's FA want list?    Mon Feb 11, 01:33 AM

The Green Bay Packers may look to sign a veteran in free agency to play behind QB Aaron Rodgers, in the opinion of Packers Wire's Zach Kruse, who lists QBs Ryan Fitzpatrick (Buccaneers), Matt Schaub (Falcons), Robert Griffin III (Redskins), Sean Mannion (Rams) and Austin Davis (Titans) as possible fits; everyone on the list except Fitzpatrick previously played for head coach Matt LaFleur earlier in their careers.

  Packers | Green Bay may pursue Le'Veon Bell    Sat Feb 9, 01:38 AM

The Green Bay Packers could make a 'strong push' to sign Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell in free agency, in the opinion of ESPN's Rob Demovsky, who believes Bell could be a true feature back in new head coach Matt LaFleur's offense.

Footballguys view: Pairing Bell with QB Aaron Rodgers would be a dream come true. Bell's presence would force defenses to honor the run and then Rodgers could shred opponents through the air. LaFleur's offense is from the Shanahan tree, and Bell would thrive in such a system.

  Packers | Green Bay could move on from Randall Cobb     Thu Feb 7, 01:51 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb should not be re-signed, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, who believes Cobb's size and injury history are reasons the team should move on.

Footballguys view: No shocker here. Cobb only played in nine games this year for the Packers, snaring only 38 catches (his lowest since 2013). The Packers selected three wide receivers last year in the draft (Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Equanimeous St.Brown, J′Mon Moore) who should play a larger role in 2019. Cobb will likely land with a new team in search of veteran depth.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers avoids knee surgery    Mon Feb 4, 01:12 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (knee) is expected to be able to fully participate in the team's offseason program and will not require surgery on the left knee that hindered him throughout various points of the 2018 season.

Footballguys view: Good news for the veteran quarterback here. The knee sprain was suffered in Week 1 and Rodgers wasn't himself for most of the 2018 season. Now that he's avoided surgery, Rodgers should be on track to participate in the offseason program. Not only is this great news for Rodgers, but it's also great news for new Packers head coach Matt LaFleur.

  Packers | Aaron Jones set league pace    Fri Feb 1, 12:43 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones led the league with his average of 5.5 rushing yards per attempt during the regular season. 'I've always felt like I've belonged in the conversation as one of the top backs,' Jones said Friday, Feb. 1, in an interview with NFL Network.

Footballguys view: Jones is retaining his running backs coach in the new regime and it is unknown how much Mike McCarthy held back his workload last year. He might end up being worth the third/fourth round pick he'll likely cost in drafts this year.

  Packers | Jake Ryan unsure of future     Thu Jan 31, 10:53 PM

Green Bay Packers impending free-agent LB Jake Ryan (knee) said he is remaining patient with his rehab from knee surgery but is unsure if he will be re-signed by the Packers.

Footballguys view: Ryan was slated to be a starter but never got that chance. The Packers are still looking for the right player to fill the spot next to Blake Martinez, and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine was retained, so Ryan could return.

  Packers | Two Green Bay coaches promoted    Thu Jan 31, 03:18 PM

Green Bay Packers assistant coaches Jason Simmons and Ryan Downard were promoted to defensive backs coach and assistant defensive backs coach, respectively. Additionally, running backs coach Ben Sirmans was officially retained.

Footballguys view: Simmons was formerly a special teams coach and cornerbacks coach. Sirmans has had success with young running backs and his retention is good news for Aaron Jones.

  Packers | Kentrell Brice may not receiver offer    Wed Jan 30, 10:17 PM

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent S Kentrell Brice may not receive a tender offer this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky.

Footballguys view: The Packers have a new regime and they will probably err on the side of bringing in new players when they are on the fence. Brice was a starter, but had some injury issues and didn't take a big step forward in his third year.

  Packers | Alvis Whitted likely to coach Green Bay WRs    Tue Jan 29, 11:44 PM

Colorado State receivers coach Alvis Whitted is expected to be hired for the same position with the Green Bay Packers, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Whitted helped Rashard Higgins and Michael Gallup get to the pros, and Preston Williams should get drafted this year. He'll have a young group to work with, and probably only one long term Packers veteran in Davante Adams since Randall Cobb's contract is up.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham should be back    Tue Jan 29, 03:11 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham is expected to stay in Green Bay in 2019, according to a source. He is due a $5 million roster bonus by March 15. It was previously reported that the Packers could release Graham to save the money.

Footballguys view: Graham's play generally ranged from mediocre to poor this year, but perhaps another year with Aaron Rodgers under a more creative offensive-minded head coach could revive his fantasy stock. He'll still be well below the optimistic ADP he had last year.

  Packers | Cole Beasley a possible fit in Titletown    Fri Jan 25, 01:11 AM

Dallas Cowboys WR Cole Beasley could be a possible free-agent target for the Green Bay Packers, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, assuming the team does not retain WR Randall Cobb, who is also a free agent.

Footballguys view: Beasley is going to have some suitors on the open market as his time in Dallas is done. He can get open on underneath routes and he basically would fit in with the Packers where Cobb was.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham one and done in GB?    Fri Jan 25, 01:01 AM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham could be released during the offseason, in the opinion of the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Pete Dougherty, a move that would save the team $5.3 million in cap space.

Footballguys view: Graham was not that impressive in his first year with the Packers, even though when he signed it sounded like an exciting match. It was kind of like his first year in Seattle, but Graham finished with 55 catches for 636 receiving yards but just two touchdowns. The lack of scores kept Graham from being a TE1 for Fantasy GMs, and he ranked as the no.14 fantasy tight end (standard leagues) in 2018.

  Packers | Matt LaFleur lands four years    Tue Jan 8, 11:19 AM

Updating previous reports, Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur signed a four-year deal. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Footballguys view: It's a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year. This move was made to get a coach in Green Bay who could get the most out of QB Aaron Rodgers. LaFleur worked under both Kyle Shanahan and Sean McVay, so explosive offensive design is nothing new to him. It's difficult to judge LaFleur after only one year as the Titans offensive coordinator since QB Marcus Mariota struggled with injuries for much of the year.

  Packers | Matt LaFleur going to Green Bay    Mon Jan 7, 06:17 PM

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur will be the next head coach of the Green Bay Packers, according to sources, beating out Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Todd Monken for the job.

Footballguys view: LaFleur is a bright, young offensive mind who can bring creativity to the Packers offense. He has experience working under both Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan. LaFleur was a first-year OC with the Titans this year and he got the offense going, working through injuries to Marcus Mariota and finally getting Derrick Henry unleashed. It's a high-risk, high-reward hire for the Packers.

  Packers | Josh McDaniels to interview for Packers    Tue Jan 1, 10:33 AM

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels will interview for the Green Bay Packers head coach vacancy Friday, Jan. 4.

Footballguys view: McDaniels was in line to be the Colts head coach last year but backed out. That move has not cooled the interest in him. He's seen as the future of the Patriots at the head coaching position but there's no telling when Bill Belichick is going to hang it up. McDaniels was the Broncos head coach for less than two years but is likely to be better prepared his second time around.

  Packers | Just one grab for Randall Cobb    Sun Dec 30, 05:49 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb posted just one catch for 27 yards on five targets in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Cobb will be a free agent next year. Aaron Rodgers might lobby the team to bring him back, but no matter where he lands, he'll be a role player and non-factor for fantasy.

  Packers | Jimmy Graham wraps up poor season    Sun Dec 30, 05:44 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jimmy Graham registered three grabs for 21 yards on five targets in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, finishing with 55 grabs, 636 yards and only two scores.

Footballguys view: Graham was a free agent and fantasy bust for the Packers this year. They are on the hook for more dead cap than they would save if they release him, so he'll probably remain a Packer in 2019.
