News
The Packers signed receiver Alex Gillett, running back Orwin Smith, offensive tackle Aaron Adams, defensive back Antonio Dennard, center Garth Gerhart and guard Andrew Tiller to reserve/futures contracts, enabling them to participate in offseason workouts.
James Starks
News
The Packers re-signed running back James Starks to a two-year deal, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Starks had drawn interest from three other teams, but opted to stay in Green Bay as a complement to Eddie Lacy.

Starks averaged a career-high 5.5 yards per carry last season, gaining 493 yards. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Bryan Bulaga
News
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Bryan Bulaga will start the season at right tackle, with David Bakhtiari remaining at left tackle. Bulaga missed all of last season with a knee injury and Bakhtiari held his own on the left side as a rookie.
Datone Jones
News
Packers rookie defensive end Datone Jones is still not 100 percent recovered from an ankle injury sustained in the preseason opener (Aug. 9) against the Cardinals. However, the Packers expect big things from the first-round pick once he's healthy.

"Once he gets himself healthy, he'll be a force," defensive line coach Mike Trgovac said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We'll see with Datone. I don't think he's confident on that ankle yet. He's still trying to work through playing through the pain of that ankle right now. He's not complaining about it. But he's working through it."

James Nixon
News
The Packers activated defensive back Sean Richardson (neck) and defensive lineman Jerel Worthy (neck) from the PUP list, the team announced Saturday. Both players should be available for Week 12 against the Vikings. 

To make room on the active roster, the team added a pair of defenders to injured reserve. Defensive backs James Nixon (knee) and Casey Hayward (hamstring) will both miss the remainder of the season after being put on IR. 

Letroy Guion
News
The Packers signed another former division rival on Monday, agreeing to terms with defensive tackle Letroy Guion, according to his agent Thomas Kleine

News
The Packers seem satisfied with A.J. Hawk but could be looking for an upgrade over fellow inside linebacker Brad Jones, reports ESPN.com. Jones had 83 tackles and three sacks in 12 games last season. He's owed $2.8 million for 2014.

Green Bay is expected to address linebacker in the draft.

Sam Shields

Jermichael Finley
News
The Dolphins could have some interest in tight end Jermichael Finley if he is cleared to play football following neck fusion surgery last year, the Miami Herald reports. Finley missed all but five games after a serious neck injury. 

The Dolphins currently have Charles Clay and Dion Sims at tight end. Finley caught 25 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns in 2013.

Injury
Neck - Questionable for start of regular season
Ryan Pickett
News
The Packers haven't ruled out bringing back impending free agents B.J. Raji and Ryan Pickett, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Raji, a defensive end taken ninth overall in 2011, is coming off a mediocre year but is just 27 and durable. Pickett, a 34-year-old nose tackle, drew praise from coach Mike McCarthy for his instincts and understanding of the game.

Defensive ends Johnny Jolly and C.J. Wilson also are slated to be unrestricted free agents March 11. "We're looking to sign those guys back but we'll see what happens," McCarthy said, per the paper. "Those decisions, a lot of those will be financial. That's really not practical to keep them all."

Rob Francois
News
The Packers placed linebacker Rob Francois on injured reserve with a torn Achilles and promoted cornerback James Nixon from the practice squad to the active roster, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
Lane Taylor
News
The Packers have ruled Brad Jones, Chris Harper, Clay Matthews, Jumal Rolle, Lane Taylor, JC Tretter and C.J. Wilson inactive for Week 17 at Chicago.
Jerel Worthy
News
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) headlines the list of inactives released Sunday by the Packers.

The others are linebacker Nate Palmer, guards JC Tretter and Lane Taylor and defensive end Jerel Worthy.

Mike Daniels
News
Packers 24-year-old defensive lineman Mike Daniels will not allow his relative youth to prevent him from assuming a leadership role. Daniels played in 48 percent of the snaps this season, but still finished second on the team with 6 1/2 snaps.

"I'm not afraid to step up as a leader now," he said. "I'm in my third year. I've made some plays. I've earned some respct in the locker room. I feel as though it's time for me to fully let my personality go. Just be myself. There's nothing holding me back now. I'm a young guy, but I'm considered a vet and vets can speak."

Daniels started just one regular-season game, but added a start in the playoff loss to San Francisco.

Jarrett Bush
News
Linebacker Mike Neal and defensive back Jarrett Bush made the big plays for the Packers defense in Week 14 against the Falcons. Neal recorded the team's only sack on the day, forcing a fumble that teammate Johnny Jolly recovered. Bush had the team's only interception.

Neal's sack was the only tackle between the two.

Randall Cobb
News
The Packers want Randall Cobb to play strictly as a receiver this season, reports ESPN.com. Cobb returned three punts and a kickoff last year and has three career return touchdowns.

With James Jones' departure, Green Bay does not want to expose Cobb to additional injury risk.

A.J. Hawk
News
The Packers seem satisfied with A.J. Hawk but could be looking for an upgrade over fellow inside linebacker Brad Jones, reports ESPN.com. Jones had 83 tackles and three sacks in 12 games last season. He's owed $2.8 million for 2014.

Green Bay is expected to address linebacker in the draft.

Brett Goode
No Updates
Tramon Williams
News
Depleted by injuries, the Packers DST held up well for the most part against the 49ers in Sunday's playoff loss. But the unit could not contain quarterback Colin Kaepernick's running, dooming Green Bay.

Kaepernick ran seven times for 98 yards, more than half of San Francisco's 167 rushing yards. Green Bay gave up 381 total yards and 23 points.

Cornerback Tramon Williams picked off Kaepernick in the second quarter, his fourth interception this year. Linebackers Nick Perry and Brad Jones and defensive end Mike Daniels all registered sacks.

The Packers DST should be stronger in 2014 assuming top pass rusher Clay Matthews returns healthy from his broken thumb.

Sam Barrington
News
The Packers announced Tuesday they activated tackle Derek Sherrod (leg) from the PUP list. To clear a roster spot, linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve.
Kevin Dorsey
News
The Packers placed tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee), wide receiver Kevin Dorsey (toe) and linebacker Jarvis Reed (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday.
Andrew Quarless
News
The Packers held on to one of their own on Thursday, bringing back tight end Andrew Quarless

Quarless finished with 32 catches for 312 yards and two touchdowns.

Davon House
News
Packers defensive back Davon House picked up the only sack Green Bay recorded on Robert Griffin III in the Week 2 win at home. House finished the game with four tackles and the sack. He has five tackles in two games and that was his first sack of the year. House and the Packers play at Cincinnati Week 3. 
Jordy Nelson
News
One of the Packers' offseason priorities is to sign receiver Jordy Nelson to an extension, reports NFL Network. Nelson, who turns 29 in May, has one year left on his deal at $2.55 million.

He's caught 30 touchdown passes over the past three seasons.

Sean Richardson
News
Packers starting safeties Morgan Burnett and M.D. Jennings combined for zero interceptions last season, the first time that's happened in Green Bay since at least the 1950s, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Every other NFL team got an interception from a safety on its roster.

"We just didn't get it done and I don't think that was a lack of ability, because the ability is there," safeties coach Darren Perry told the paper. "We just have to make sure we're consistent."

Burnett led the team with three fumble recoveries, but also paced the Packers with 17 missed tackles. Coach Mike McCarthy said immediately after the season that he wants more "impact players" on defense.

Green Bay could give a longer look to Sean Richardson or Micah Hyde, or address the safety position through free agency and the draft.

Kahlil Bell
News
In addition to quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is out again with a broken collarbone, the Packers' list of inactives for Week 14 against the Falcons includes defensive lineman C.J. Wilson (ankle), wide receiver Chris Harper, running back Kahlil Bell, linebacker Nate Palmer, offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse and defensive lineman Jerel Worthy. Harper, Bell, Palmer, Newhouse and Worthy are all healthy scratches.
Nate Palmer
News
The Packers listed linebackers Clay Matthews (thumb) and Nate Palmer, wideout Chris Harper, quarterback Scott Tolzien, cornerback Jumal Rolle, and offensive linemen Ryan Taylor and JC Tretter as inactive for the playoff game vs. the 49ers.
Julius Peppers
News
Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels described his new teammate, 34-year-old Julius Peppers, as "a freak of nature."

“Charles Woodson played pretty well at 34," Daniels told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "Julius Peppers is by every means of the word a ‘freak of nature.’ I don’t think age is going to affect him too much. And he’s got some pretty good players lined up with him. Our front seven is very good. When you add the element of Julius Peppers to that. The sky’s the limit in my opinion.”

Peppers signed a three-year contract with the Packers and will rotate between the defensive line and linebacker.

Andy Mulumba
News
Packers center Evan Dietrich-Smith (knee), cornerback Micah Hyde (groin), linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb), linebacker Andy Mulumba (ankle), defensive end Mike Neal (abdomen) and defensive tackle Ryan Pickett (knee) were all cleared to play Week 12 vs. Minnesota. All six players were listed as probable.
Chris Harper
News
The Packers listed linebackers Clay Matthews (thumb) and Nate Palmer, wideout Chris Harper, quarterback Scott Tolzien, cornerback Jumal Rolle, and offensive linemen Ryan Taylor and JC Tretter as inactive for the playoff game vs. the 49ers.
Clay Matthews
News
Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews, who broke his right thumb twice in 2013, said the injury won't hamper him in 2014.

“It’s been doing well," Matthews said in a radio interview, per ESPN.com. "I’ve been getting physical therapy three times a week. I’ve been able to work out with a few limitations, but from talking with the doctors there shouldn’t be any limitations once next season rolls around.

"It’s just been a pain because obviously you look at it, it’s just a broken thumb. But it’s such an aggravating injury for a pass-rusher, especially in the manner in which I did it twice and having to have it surgically repaired twice, it doesn’t make it for an easy offseason in recovery.” 

Matthews was held to 7.5 sacks in 11 games last season.

Tim Masthay
No Updates
Morgan Burnett
News
Packers safety Morgan Burnett signed a four-year, $24.75 million contract last July, then went the whole season without an interception. He also failed to break up a 28-yard touchdown pass to tight end Vernon Davis in the playoff loss to the 49ers.

According to ESPN.com, Burnett "broke on the ball but looked like he was trying to swat a fly rather than making an aggressive move toward the ball." Said coach Mike McCarthy: “I mean, playmaking, you go get the football.” 

Still, McCarthy said Burnett is nowhere near a bust. Burnett, who had 96 tackles and three fumble recoveries in the regular season, would benefit from better play at the other safety position, the coach added.

Casey Hayward
News
Packers cornerback Casey Hayward, limited to three games last year with hamstring problems, said he'll be ready for the offseason program starting in two weeks, reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Hayward led the team with six interceptions as a rookie in 2012.
Myles White
News
Packers wideout Myles White has added 10 pounds to 190 as he seeks to secure the No. 4 receiver job, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. White has been clocked at 4.3 in the forty and figures to enter the season as Randall Cobb's backup.

White caught nine passes for 66 yards last year.

Derek Sherrod
News
The Packers have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's contest against the Eagles in Week 10: wide receiver Chris Harper, quarterback Aaron Rodgers, cornerback James Nixon, linebacker Andy Mulumba, tackle Derek Sherrod, defensive end Josh Boyd and defensive end C.J. Wilson.
Micah Hyde
News
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he wants defensive back Micah Hyde on the field all the time. As a rookie Hyde served as the No. 3 corner and made 55 tackles, adding two passes defended and a forced fumble.

"As far as Micah Hyde, I’m going to say it again, make sure we’re clear: Micah Hyde deserves the opportunity to be an every-down player on our defense," McCarthy said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "And as we go into 2014, that’s our responsibility as a coaching staff to create those competitive opportunities for him to get that done.

"I got to a point in the season where Micah was standing on the sidelines too much. He’s a good football player and I thought he deserved the opportunity to compete to play. And it’s tough to do when you’re a rookie because you get into camp and you’re trying to build packages. … We’re going to give Micah the opportunity to play on all three downs – whether that’s corner, nickel, dime, safety, that’s the versatility I think he brings to our football team."

Mason Crosby
News
Packers kicker Mason Crosby bounced back from his worst season to produce his best in 2013, as he made 33 of 37 field goals in the regular season and converted two more in the playoffs. He ended the year having made 16 straight field goals.

“I just sought out all the positive things I could draw from previous years, from the good things that have happened in my career,” Crosby told the team's website. “That’s what I went after. Positive motivations, things I could really carry forward. All the negativity, missed kicks, I just erased them from my mind and moved forward.”

Under contract for two more seasons, Crosby is scheduled to earn $2.65 million in 2014.

Chase Thomas
News
Beset by injuries on defense, the Falcons signed linebackers Jamar Chaney and Omar Gaither. Chaney made 23 starts for the Eagles and Gaither has 413 tackles in his seven-year career.

Atlanta also promoted fullback Patrick DiMarco to the active roster and signed linebacker Chase Thomas to the practice squad.

Josh Boyd
News
The Packers have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's contest against the Eagles in Week 10: wide receiver Chris Harper, quarterback Aaron Rodgers, cornerback James Nixon, linebacker Andy Mulumba, tackle Derek Sherrod, defensive end Josh Boyd and defensive end C.J. Wilson.
Andrew Tiller
News
The Packers signed receiver Alex Gillett, running back Orwin Smith, offensive tackle Aaron Adams, defensive back Antonio Dennard, center Garth Gerhart and guard Andrew Tiller to reserve/futures contracts, enabling them to participate in offseason workouts.
Ina Liaina
News
Green Bay's signing of Ina Liaina, a true blocking fullback, indicates the Packers "may see a need for someone who can destroy linebackers before they get their hands on bruising halfback Eddie Lacy," reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Fullback John Kuhn, an impending free agent, was used more as a third-down pass blocker than a lead blocker.

The Packers trailed San Francisco 20-17 in the playoffs when they faced 1st-and-goal from the 9-yard line with just over six minutes left. They ran the ball with receiver Randall Cobb and tried two passes before settling for a field goal. Lacy did not get the ball.

Now, at least, Green Bay has a fullback on the roster.

Eddie Lacy
News
Packers running back Eddie Lacy won the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year award despite quarterback Aaron Rodgers missing seven games and most of another. Without Rodgers, defenses ganged up on the run.

Lacy overcame those 8-man fronts to rush for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns. 

"The experience of losing Aaron last year has helped the development of our running game," coach Mike McCarthy said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Running the ball against eight-man fronts is something you have to do in this league. Usually for us, it’s been more situational.

"But to do it on an every-down basis has been a real benefit for us. I think we can expand off that."

Don Barclay
News
Packers OL Don Barclay, DT Johnny Jolly, DE Mike Neal, OL Marshall Newhouse, LB Nick Perry, CB Sam Shields and OL Josh Sitton are probable Week 13 against the Lions.

Barclay and Perry were both limited in practice Wednesday. Neal was able to practice in full Tuesday, but did not practice Wednesday. 

Brandon Bostick
News
With Jermichael Finley and Andrew Quarless entering unrestricted free agency, the Packers "are excited to take a greater look at Brandon Bostick," reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The 6-3, 260-pounder's game bears "a striking resemblance to Finley's," the report said.

Bostick is a former college wideout who averaged 17.1 yards on his seven catches this year. He broke his foot Week 15, but should be running before March, the paper said.

"I definitely think I showed I can play with the guys," said Bostick, who's entering his third year in the league. "I can make plays on offense. I think I showed the coaches I can be a playmaker."

Scott Tolzien
News
The Packers couldn't win without Aaron Rodgers last season, so now they're determined to find a promising quarterback in the draft, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Green Bay has drafted only one quarterback, 2012 seventh-rounder B.J. Coleman, in the past five years.

The paper noted Matt Flynn is an impending free agent and Scott Tolzien may or may not be the answer as Green Bay's backup quarterback.

"I think we definitely need four, so I'm hopeful that we can get a young guy in the draft," coach Mike McCarthy told the paper. "That's something we're looking at and maybe taking even a harder look this year — well, that's not true, we've always taken a hard look.

"That's something that we're focused on."

Raymond Webber
News
The Jets waived wide receiver Raymond Webber on Saturday.
Jarrett Boykin
News
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said No. 3 receiver Jarrett Boykin will draw more attention from defenses this season, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He also was very supportive of the receiver, saying he expects him to "step up."

"He's going to probably see more challenges really from the defense," McCarthy said. "I mean, he's played on special teams, he's played enough reps for us, you feel like you know what you have as a player. His confidence has really grown particularly throughout last year.

"He's had good production with his opportunities so really just the consistency in his performance and No. 1, it's always availability."

Boykin caught 49 passes for 681 yards and three touchdowns last year.

Seneca Wallace
News
Packers quarterback Seneca Wallace is set to have surgery, according to TMZ.

Wallace will have his abductor tendon repaired. The surgery is set for some point next week. Wallace will be sidelined for four weeks after surgery. He'll explore his options during the offseason, though said he would love to remain in Green Bay.

Wallace said the injury is not career-threatening. 

Aaron Rodgers
News
The Packers have signed free agent quarterback Matt Flynn, reports ESPN.

Flynn started five games in 2013, including four for the Packers (the other start was in Oakland), and completed 62 percent of his passes for 1,392 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions. He started in Green Bay when Aaron Rodgers was out with a collarbone injury.

He is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind Rodgers again.

Michael Hill
News
The Packers announced a pair of small deals Wednesday, re-signing defensive back Chris Banjo and signing running back Michael Hill.

Both played minor roles for the team a year ago, though Banjo was the only one who finished the season with them. Banjo racked up 19 tackles in 16 games, while Hill appeared in two games before being signed off the practice squad by the Buccaneers. 

Mike Neal
News
Free agent defensive end Mike Neal tweeted that he's re-signing with the Packers for two years. It's a significant move for Green Bay, as Neal led the team with 37 quarterback hurries last season.

Neal has 9.5 sacks over the past two years despite not being a full-time starter.

Alex Gillett
News
The Packers signed receiver Alex Gillett, running back Orwin Smith, offensive tackle Aaron Adams, defensive back Antonio Dennard, center Garth Gerhart and guard Andrew Tiller to reserve/futures contracts, enabling them to participate in offseason workouts.
Aaron Adams
News
The Packers signed receiver Alex Gillett, running back Orwin Smith, offensive tackle Aaron Adams, defensive back Antonio Dennard, center Garth Gerhart and guard Andrew Tiller to reserve/futures contracts, enabling them to participate in offseason workouts.
Orwin Smith
News
The Packers signed receiver Alex Gillett, running back Orwin Smith, offensive tackle Aaron Adams, defensive back Antonio Dennard, center Garth Gerhart and guard Andrew Tiller to reserve/futures contracts, enabling them to participate in offseason workouts.
Johnny Jolly
News
Free agent defensive lineman Johnny Jolly, who underwent neck surgery in January, will be medically cleared in a couple weeks, his agent tweeted. Jolly played in 13 games for the Packers last season, posting 21 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery.
Johnathan Franklin
News
Packers running back Johnathan Franklin received some praise from his old running back coach, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Steve Broussard, who coached Franklin during his breakout year at UCLA, thinks he'll be a fine player once he adjusts to the NFL. Franklin showed his potential Week 2, when he rushed for 103 yards, but only saw six carries the rest of the year. Broussard said the offseason would be crucial for Franklin. He added that he thought Franklin pressed early in the year. Broussard also believes Franklin would perform better with more carries. That could be tough to come by considering Eddie Lacy is around, but Franklin did receive positive reports last offseason. With some improvement, he could work his way into at least a minor role next season.

Josh Sitton

DuJuan Harris
News
Eddie Lacy is set to start the year as the Packers primary running back following the season-ending knee injury for incumbent starter DuJuan Harris. Of the rushers behind Lacy, only James Starks has been consistently good in practice. 

It suggests that Lacy could hog the playing time in the Green Bay backfield, something the team may not have envisioned when they drafted him. 

Lacy doesn't have much experience as a bell-cow running back -- just once did he go over 200 carries in college. But that's because he was behind two excellent rushers at Alabama (Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson). It doesn't mean he can't do it ... in fact it might be construed that he has fresh legs. He had just 355 carries over three seasons (Montee Ball had 356 carries just last year). 

A strike against Lacy is an injury history. The list includes a knee, ankle, chest, big toe, elbow, left hand, knee (again) and hamstring -- with two surgeries performed. This is what scared off many NFL teams (including the Steelers) from taking him in the draft. But if we're being fair he played in 12 of 13 games as a sophomore and all 14 as a junior in college. 

The other strike against Lacy is the team he's on: Green Bay loves to pass. They've averaged 405.3 carries over their last three seasons, topping out at 433 carries last year. Stunningly, that was good enough to finish in the middle of the NFL in rush attempts, though it includes Aaron Rodgers' 54 rushes (he's averaged 59.3 carries per season). 

But if Lacy gives the Packers a rushing presence much like Harris did last postseason, there might actually be more balance in the game plan from week to week. Remember, no one's really been worthy of taking pass attempts away from Rodgers the past three years. 

We're at a point in Fantasy drafts where running backs go from "great" to "not bad" to "Oh my gosh I have to pick from these people?!?" pretty quickly. Lacy's going to be a popular pick no matter what I write but the truth is that his negatives are no worse than those of Ryan Mathews and Darren McFadden. His positives are better than theirs. You should consider Lacy as a No. 2 running back to begin the year. 

Injury
Knee - Probable for start of training camp
David Bakhtiari
News
The Packers intend to keep David Bakhtiari at left tackle despite Bryan Bulaga's return from a knee injury, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Bulaga will play right tackle.

Coach Mike McCarthy told the paper he likes the chemistry on the left side between Bakhtiari and guard Josh Sitton. "I liked the relationship between David and Josh, and to me it's more about the combination over there," he said. "They work well together. They're both wired mentally.

"David's young and raw, and he's got a lot to learn. The game comes very easily to Josh now."

McCarthy added that Bakhtiari, a 6-4, 300-pounder selected in the fourth round last season, needs to get bigger and stronger for the 2014 season.

Nick Perry
News
Depleted by injuries, the Packers DST held up well for the most part against the 49ers in Sunday's playoff loss. But the unit could not contain quarterback Colin Kaepernick's running, dooming Green Bay.

Kaepernick ran seven times for 98 yards, more than half of San Francisco's 167 rushing yards. Green Bay gave up 381 total yards and 23 points.

Cornerback Tramon Williams picked off Kaepernick in the second quarter, his fourth interception this year. Linebackers Nick Perry and Brad Jones and defensive end Mike Daniels all registered sacks.

The Packers DST should be stronger in 2014 assuming top pass rusher Clay Matthews returns healthy from his broken thumb.
