  Packers | Casey Matthews to IR    Sun Jul 26, 02:48 PM

Minnesota Vikings LB Casey Matthews (hip) has been placed on injured reserve due to a hip injury that occurred during the team's offseason program.

Footballguys view: After spending four years with the Eagles, Matthews signed with the Vikings earlier this offseason. He was going to compete for a reserve linebacker position and contribute on special teams.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy tough to bring down    Fri Jul 24, 10:11 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy ranked fourth in yards after contact last year, and he plays 'like he weighs 300 pounds,' according to an NFC North personnel member.

Footballguys view: With 580 yards after contract, Lacy ranked only behind DeMarco Murray (740), Marshawn Lynch (707) and Le'Veon Bell (616) in that category. He's a power runner who can grind down an opponent as the game goes on. Lacy has 3,000 all-purpose yards combined over the first two seasons of his career, and he should continue to be a RB1 for fantasy owners in 2015. His workload is monitored closely by the Packers, so Lacy should be a top-10 fantasy back--not a top-5 back--this season.

  Packers | Jermaine Gresham visits Green Bay    Fri Jul 24, 08:23 AM

Free-agent TE Jermaine Gresham (Bengals) visited the Green Bay Packers Thursday, July 23, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Gresham is getting some interest around the league, and he's going to take his time when finding a new home. Teams like the Saints or Cardinals could end up landing the veteran tight end. Richard Rodgers is set to be the starting tight end in Green Bay, but Gresham might change that plan if the Packers add him. Stay tuned.

  Packers | Letroy Guion suspended    Thu Jul 23, 11:55 AM

Green Bay Packers DT Letroy Guion has been suspended three games Thursday, July 23, for his Feb. 3 arrest.

Footballguys view: Guion was suspended three games by the NFL after an offseason arrest where police seized more than $190,000 in cash, 357 grams of marijuana and an unloaded handgun in his truck. He paid a $5,000 fine on this charge in hopes of avoiding a suspension by the league. This report indicates that Guion plans to appeal the decision.

  Packers | Eddie Lacy not setting goals    Mon Jul 20, 03:51 PM

Green Bay Packers RB Eddie Lacy said he doesn't set personal goals. Lacy said he focuses on whatever it takes to put the team in a position to win.

Footballguys view: Lacy may not project stats for himself, but we do. Fantasy owners should be excited by assets on the Packers roster. Lacy has the ability to finish as a top-5 fantasy running back this season. His current ADP is RB4 (1.05) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | Reggie Wayne drawing interest from Packers    Mon Jul 20, 08:25 AM

Free-agent WR Reggie Wayne (Colts) is drawing interest from the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: The Packers would be an odd fit for Wayne as they already have a group of talented young receivers. If added, Wayne might compete with the likes of Jeff Janis or Jared Abbrederis for the fourth WR spot behind Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams. The Packers are certainly Super Bowl contenders, but we don't see how Wayne really fits as he's not the same player he used to be.

  Packers | Andrew Quarless likely not facing jail time    Tue Jul 14, 02:26 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless probably won't be imprisoned since he was charged with a misdemeanor and not a felony. Quarless was arrested for discharging a firearm in public, but he said it was an act caused by drunken stupidity, not violence.

Footballguys view: Ah, the old "drunken stupidity" defense. It's not quite as effective as the Chewbacca defense, but it's close. Fantasy owners aren't dialed in on Quarless (nor should they be) even if he's starting over Richard Rodgers this season.

  Packers | Green Bay looking at tight end market?    Sun Jul 12, 08:19 AM

The Green Bay Packers could sign a free-agent tight end before training camp opens Thursday, July 30. Free-agent TE Jermaine Gresham (Bengals) is considered a candidate.

Footballguys view: Gresham has also been a player of interest for the Raiders and Saints. He might have marginal fantasy value if he lands in Green Bay or New Orleans.

  Packers | Larger role for Richard Rodgers    Sat Jul 11, 09:24 AM

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers is expected to have a more significant role in the passing game this season.

  Packers | Richard Rodgers, Andrew Quarless to compete    Tue Jul 7, 12:57 PM

Green Bay Packers TEs Richard Rodgers and Andrew Quarless are expected to competer for the starting tight end job this year. Quarless caught 29 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns in 2014. However, he could be subject to discipline under the league's personal conduct policy after being arrested over the weekend for discharging a firearm in public.

Footballguys view: Rodgers would have a chance to get a leg up on Quarless if he misses time early in the season due to a suspension, but chances are the tight end position for Green Bay will remain on the fringe of fantasy-relevant situations despite the high quality of the pass offense.

  Packers | Andrew Quarless safe for now    Mon Jul 6, 07:27 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless will not be released at this time even though he was arrested this past weekend for discharging a firearm in public, according to sources.

Footballguys view: 2014 third-round pick Richard Rodgers would be thrust into closer to a full-time role if Quarless is jettisoned. Rodgers seemed to have a chance to gain prominence if Randall Cobb walked in free agency, but Quarless being released would create a similar amount of additional opportunity and put Rodgers in the late-round sleeper TE tier.

  Packers | Andrew Quarless arrested    Sat Jul 4, 01:41 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless was arrested early Saturday, July 4, for allegedly firing a gun into the ground, according to police. Quarless supposedly was involved in a fight and fled the scene, but was apprehended. The tight end has been charged with discharging a firearm in public.

Footballguys view: That's not good. Quarless is facing up to a year in jail for the first-degree misdemeanor (in Florida). The league is going to take any arrest involving gun play quite seriously, so a suspension could be a possibility once the legal process has been exhausted. That might take some time, so Quarless could be okay--for now. Fantasy owners are avoiding the Green Bay tight end anyway, and this incident isn't going to improve his standing in fantasy circles.

  Packers | Datone Jones to sit a game    Thu Jul 2, 03:54 PM

Green Bay Packers DE Datone Jones has been suspended one game by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Footballguys view: Jones hasn't really panned out since being a first-round pick in 2013. He's just a rotational player for the defensive line at this point and his absence shouldn't affect the Week 1 matchup with the Bears.

  Packers | Richard Rodgers to see more snaps?    Wed Jul 1, 04:53 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers could see more playing time in 2015, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. Rodgers played 528 snaps, while fellow TE Andrew Quarless played 695 snaps. Demovsky said he wouldn't be surprised if those numbers reversed this season.

Footballguys view: Even if it is Rodgers that gets more snaps this year, the Packers tight end position will not produce a fantasy relevant option. The wide receivers will dominate targets, and the team has good enough depth to keep wide receiver primary if one of the starters goes down. Rodgers was a curious third pick last year considering that he is not much of a blocker or athlete as a pass catcher.

  Packers | John Crockett will be ready for training camp    Thu Jun 18, 06:51 PM

Green Bay Packers rookie RB John Crockett (ankle) is nursing a sprained left ankle, but should be available for the start of training camp July 30.

Footballguys view: Crockett is buried on the Packers depth chart. The undrafted rookie from North Dakota State is a hard worker, but he's not overly quick, fast or powerful. He'll have to work hard to make the team as a practice squad player in 2015. Only fantasy owners in dynasty leagues should be watching his situation.

  Packers | Sign Harold Spears    Thu Jun 18, 06:40 PM

Free-agent TE Harold Spears (Saints) was signed to an undisclosed contract Thursday, June 18.

Footballguys view: He was released earlier this month, but Spears is back with the Saints after being added as an undrafted free agent out of New Hampshire earlier this year. At 6'4" 250 pounds, Spears is a move tight end worth monitoring in super deep dynasty leagues.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers and others excused early    Thu Jun 18, 06:39 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and any Packer with at least six years of experience were excused early from practice Thursday, June 18.

Footballguys view: Some well deserved rest for Rodgers and company. Head coach Mike McCarthy said he was pleased with the output they had given and that those who were excused early were still involved with the strength and conditioning and meetings portions of practice.

  Packers | John Crockett sitting    Thu Jun 18, 11:49 AM

Green Bay Packers RB John Crockett (ankle) is out of practice Thursday, June 18. He left practice Tuesday, June 16, and had ice on his left ankle.

Footballguys view: Someone call Tubbs - find out where his pastel-jacket wearing partner is. This news isn't terribly tragic as Crockett is so buried on the depth chart right now, that missing some minicamp is no big deal. He's not likely to have any value in redraft leagues anyway and is no more than a deep dynasty guy or a backup for Eddie Lacy. If Lacy was down long-term, Crockett could function well as a three-down back. However he's not terribly strong or fast so his upside is limited.

  Packers | Davante Adams praised by head coach    Tue Jun 16, 10:13 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams has received significant praise from head coach Mike McCarthy and teammates for his development. 'I think Davante has done a great job in the strength and conditioning. He's been really, really good in practice throughout this deal. Davante, if you wanted me to pick an MVP or an all-star, he would definitely be atop the list,' McCarthy noted.

Footballguys view: Adams is set to be the Packers third receiver behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb. He'll face competition for that job from Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis and Ty Montgomery. We expect Adams to come out on top, and he's a fantasy player you need consider as a WR4/5 with upside. Right now, Adams has an ADP of WR44 (9.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | Coach impressed with Richard Rodgers    Tue Jun 16, 10:03 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Richard Rodgers has progressed and taken a natural step forward, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. 'You look at the way he performed Week 1 compared to how he performed the last stretch of the season. Now you have a chance to go back and look at all the video, it's a lot more natural for him. He's not thinking about what he's doing, he's obviously focusing more on his technique and fundamentals and his awareness of what the defense is doing.'

Footballguys view: Rodgers is set to be the top tight end in Green Bay. He'll face competition from Andrew Quarless for that job in training camp. The tight end just isn't used that much in the Packers offense today, so Rodgers shouldn't be much of a fantasy factor.

  Packers | Matt Blanchard has edge for No.3 QB job    Tue Jun 16, 08:35 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Matt Blanchard has looked well ahead of rookie QB Brett Hundley in the competition for the team's No. 3 quarterback job. 'Matt Blanchard had a heck of a day today,' Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Tuesday, June 16. 'I'll just tell you what I told him when I met him in April [at his workout]. I said, 'Why the hell don't you have a job?''

Footballguys view: That's not what Hundley's dynasty owners wanted to hear. It's not guaranteed the Packers even keep a third quarterback out of training camp, but if they do Hundley may be the one they end up choosing based on his potential as a fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

  Packers | Ty Montgomery standing out    Tue Jun 16, 08:27 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery was a standout at minicamp practice Tuesday, June 16. Quarterbacks and receivers coach Alex Van Pelt said he was impressed with Montgomery's ability to retain the plays from rookie camp. Montgomery also caught a deep ball and exhibited his catch-and-run ability.

Footballguys view: Montgomery has running back ability in the open field with the ball in his hands. He can play outside or in the slot at the pro level. He works his tail off and is known to be very coachable. The rookie from Stanford is going to compete for the WR3 job behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb.

  Packers | Sign Damarious Randall    Tue Jun 16, 04:56 PM

Green Bay Packers first-round pick rookie CB Damarious Randall signed his four-year deal Tuesday, June 16. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: The Arizona State standout is a bit of a 'tweener as he can play both cornerback and safety. He's a competitive player who works hard to break up passes. Randall does a good job of anticipating routes and has the foot quickness to get himself in place to make plays.

  Packers | Andrew Quarless receives praise    Tue Jun 16, 02:40 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Andrew Quarless has made strides this offseason, according to QB Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers said he thought something clicked for Quarless late last season and he's ready to take the next step.

Footballguys view: Quarless has always been a somewhat rigid athlete and route runner. It sounds like he's improved his ability to make a difference on the field. We'll see him compete with Richard Rodgers for the top tight end position in Green Bay.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson practicing    Tue Jun 16, 12:10 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hip) is practicing Tuesday, June 16. The receivers are working in groups of three working on route concepts.

Footballguys view: More good news coming out of Green Bay about Nelson. He's expressed confidence about where he's at in the recovery process. By all accounts, Nelson should be ready to fully participate in training camp.

  Packers | Jeff Janis running with No. 1 offense    Sun Jun 14, 08:18 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis has been working with the No. 1 offense while WR Jordy Nelson (hip) remains sidelined following hip surgery. Janis has been trying to build chemistry with QB Aaron Rodgers, which is a must for Janis to gain the trust of Rodgers and his coaches. 'It's a lot different going with Aaron because he's on a whole other level, but I'm just trying to take advantage of all the reps that I get and try to make plays whenever he comes my way,' Janis said.

Footballguys view: Good news for the second-year pro here. Janis was a Division II standout with fantastic measurables and incredible production at Saginaw Valley State. He can sky for passes above his head, and Janis has a tremendous work ethic that pays off on the field. He'll work hard to win at the point of the catch, and he's a threat to score from anywhere on the field after the catch. Janis could push Davante Adams for the WR3 job behind Nelson and Randall Cobb.

  Packers | Davante Adams praised by Aaron Rodgers    Thu Jun 11, 11:45 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams was praised by QB Aaron Rodgers for his athleticism, and Rodgers said Adams has 'humungous upside.'

Footballguys view: Nice praise from his superstar quarterback here. Adams could make his presence felt in the red zone this year because of his hops and "my ball" mentality. He will face competition for the WR3 spot from Jeff Janis, Jared Abbrederis and Ty Montgomery.

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hip) practiced Wednesday, June 10, for the first time since undergoing hip surgery earlier this offseason. Nelson participated in individual drills during organized team activities.

Footballguys view: Great news for the Packers here. After practice, Nelson expressed confidence in where he's at in the recovery process. He should be ready to rock at the start of training camp.

  Packers | Randall Cobb feeling no pressure    Wed Jun 10, 05:07 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb said the pressure he's felt in the past has been released since he signed his new, long-term contract. Cobb said now he can focus on working on his game and the high expectations he's set for himself.

Footballguys view: In 2014, Cobb recorded career highs in catches (91), receiving yards (1,287) and touchdowns (12). Those numbers put him among the top-10 of fantasy receivers. We're expecting similar numbers this year, and Cobb is certainly an exciting option for DFS players each week because of his ability to take over a game.

  Packers | Jeff Janis making strides    Tue Jun 2, 11:05 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jeff Janis was singled out by head coach Mike McCarthy Tuesday, June 2. "Jeff Janis is really moving forward. (Janis) came on at the end of last year. (He) was ready to play," McCarthy said.

Footballguys view: Janis was a Divison II standout with rare measurables and production during his playing days at Saginaw Valley State. The Packers plucked him off the board in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL draft to develop. He's got the size to play above the rim, and Janis has the quickness to break off routes in a hurry. He's an interesting prospect for dynasty owners to add and monitor.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers to have more control?    Sat May 30, 12:25 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could have more freedom to change plays at the line of scrimmage this season now that offensive coordinator Tom Clements is calling plays.

Footballguys view: Rodgers should have all the freedom he wants. Fantasy owners consider Rodgers the second-best quarterback at this time--just behind Andrew Luck (Colts). He's coming off the board at QB2 (2.10) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Packers | Jared Abbredderis back on the field    Fri May 29, 12:38 AM

Green Bay Packers WR Jared Abbrederis (knee) participated in individual drills but did not do any 11-on-11 drills during the OTA session Thursday, May 31, as he continues to work his way back from surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

Footballguys view: Abbrederis is a smart receiver who can run a crisp route. He'll get open, and he's got good run-after-the-catch ability. This season, Abbrederis will compete with Jeff Janis and Ty Montgomery to be the team's WR4 behind Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams.

  Packers | B.J. Raji is full go    Thu May 28, 07:33 PM

Green Bay Packers DT B.J. Raji (biceps) said he is back to full strength after suffering a torn biceps last season.

Footballguys view: Raji is in a make-or-break season for the Packers. He missed all of the 2014 season after coming off a disappointing 2013 season where he played defensive end. We'll see if Raji can get back on track this season.

  Packers | Jordy Nelson not part of OTAs    Thu May 28, 07:21 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Jordy Nelson (hip) did not participate in organized team activities Thursday, May 28, as he continues to recover from offseason hip surgery. A timetable for his return has not been disclosed.

Footballguys view: No worries here. The Packers don't need to rush him back as he continues to recover from his hip surgery. Early reports had Nelson back by training camp, and there's no reason to think (at this time) he'll miss that target.

  Packers | Ty Montgomery impressing     Fri May 22, 09:15 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery's explosion stood out in rookie minicamp, head coach Mike McCarthy said. Team scout Sam Seale compared Montgomery to a bigger version of WR Randall Cobb.

Footballguys view: We like to hear that he's impressing, but let's slow down on the Cobb comparisons. Montgomery has traits more like Cordarrelle Patterson (Vikings). Over the last three years at Stanford, Montgomery had 16 drops and three fumbles. He'll need to improve his ball security if he wants to make a big impact as a pro. Montgomery has run-after-the catch ability, but we'd like to see him become a better route-runner and stop letting so many passes into his body. The rookie has talent, but he lacks polish at this time.

  Packers | Ty Montgomery signs    Wed May 20, 02:00 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery, a third-round draft pick, signed his four-year rookie deal Wednesday, May 20, according to his agent, Damarius Bilbo. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The Packers are hoping Montgomery can boost their return game after averaging 19.8 yards per punt return and 25.2 yards per kick return last year in college. 'I just have this mentality that there's nothing I can't do,' Montgomery said. 'I whole-heartedly believe in my ability to do anything from any position. My ability to be versatile kind of sets me apart.'

Footballguys view: Montgomery is an interesting player for dynasty owners to monitor. The rookie has good size at 220 pounds, and he can dominate on shorter routes where he can best use his run-after-the-catch ability. He's built like a running back, but he needs to improve his route-running if he wants to make the most of his talent. This season, Montgomery will compete with guys like Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis for the WR4 job behind Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb and Davante Adams.

  Packers | Ty Montgomery exudes confidence    Tue May 19, 07:32 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Ty Montgomery said he believes he can compete anywhere, anytime. 'It's nothing against any of the other guys that are here. But we're all competitors. I'm going to be prepared to be able to go whenever and wherever the coaching staff decides to put me.

Footballguys view: Montgomery is a confident player, but he needs to prove that his hands can be trustworthy in order to earn a larger role with the Packers. The rookie has good size at 220 pounds, and he can dominate on shorter routes where he can best use his run-after-the-catch ability. He's built like a running back, but he needs to improve his route-running if he wants to make the most of his talent. He's no better than sixth on the depth chart at this time.

  Packers | Damarious Randall misses practice    Fri May 8, 03:54 PM

Green Bay Packers CB Damarious Randall (ankle) did not participate in practice Friday, May 8, because of a minor ankle injury.

Footballguys view: Randall was a bit of a surprising pick for the Packers near the end of the first round. He was a safety in college, but Randall will play cornerback for the Packers. Randall will get back out there once the ankle is better.

  Packers | Brett Hundley agrees to terms    Thu May 7, 01:47 PM

Green Bay Packers fifth-round draft choice QB Brett Hundley agreed to terms on a four-year deal with the team Thursday, May 7, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Brett Hundley was always going to be a work-in-progress and landed in a good spot with Green Bay. The Packers have Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien as their backup quarterbacks, so Hundley will have to work his way up the depth chart behind Aaron Rodgers. Hundley reminds us of a young Randall Cunningham. He has a good arm and supreme athleticism, but his feel in the pocket needs to improve. Rodgers doesn't look to be slowing down, so Hundley is unlikely to see the field anytime soon. Dynasty owners take note.

  Packers | Select Brett Hundley    Sat May 2, 02:17 PM

UCLA QB Brett Hundley was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 147th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: It's a good spot for Hundley to land in. He has multiple issues to overcome and the Packers will let him do that while not putting pressure on him to try and start. The Packers have Matt Flynn, Scott Tolzien and Matt Blanchard already so they might put Hundley on the practice squad.


  Packers | Ty Montgomery lands joins Pack    Fri May 1, 11:16 PM

The Green Bay Packers selected Stanford WR Ty Montgomery in Round 3 (No. 94) of the 2015 NFL Draft Friday, May 1.

Footballguys view: The Packers love keeping the wide receiver portion of the roster deep. Montgomery could be a fourth wide receiver, but he's also a good returner and might decrease Randall Cobb's role there. Only really of note in return or deep leagues.

  Packers | Damarious Randall selected 30th overall    Thu Apr 30, 11:19 PM

Arizona State S Damarious Randall was selected 30th overall by the Green Bay Packers in the 2015 NFL Draft Thursday, April 30.

Footballguys view: Randall has the mindset of an in-the-box strong safety, and he is a tough player who isn't afraid to mix it up as a run-defender. He has the body of a small free safety or corner which allows him to shine in coverage. Randall will get out of position biting on pump fakes, so he'll need to improve his discipline as a pro.


  Packers | Two players waived    Wed Apr 29, 05:10 PM

  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.
