Position Listing
Damarious Randall
News
Randle tallied seven tackles (six solo) and returned an interception for a touchdown in Sunday's victory over the Raiders.

Randall took some lumps from Oakland's Amari Cooper on Sunday, but he was productive in the fantasy department thanks to the pick-six -- the first of his career. Randall is up to 51 tackles (46 solo) and three interceptions 13 games into his rookie season.

Tyler Kuder
No Updates
Davante Adams
News
While Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb continue to top the Packers' wideout depth chat, Adams is in line to jostle with the likes of Jared Abbrederis, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis and draftee Trevor Davis for slotting behind the team's top duo, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

With Ed Williams and Jamel Johnson also in the depth mix, wideout is a crowded position for the Packers at this stage. The fact that Adams was a second-round draft pick in 2014 makes it likely that he'll stick around after last cuts, but either way, between the return to health of Nelson and all the competition at wideout, Adams could be hard-pressed to match the 50-catch output he turned in over 13 games in 2015.

James Starks
News
The Packers and Starks have agreed to a two-year, $6 million contract Friday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Starks, who was reportedly looking to earn a starting role with another team during the offseason, will provide some insurance for the Packers should Eddie Lacy continue to struggle with injury and conditioning issues that plagued him throughout the 2015 season. While this deal will take Starks through age 32, he's never carried the ball more than 150 times in a season, so there's reason to believe he might have some gas in the tank, should he be asked to carry the load on offense.

Bryan Bulaga
News
Packers offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.

Bulaga has been a limited participant in practice all week -- a good sign considering he hasn't been able to take the field since Week 1 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus. That being said, no official word has been announced regarding his status for Week 5, likely making him a game-time decision against the Rams.

Datone Jones
News
Jones did not have his fifth-year option picked up by the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The Packers took Jones in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, but, like all of Green Bay's first-round selections since the CBA was updated in 2011, was deemed unworthy of having his fifth-year option exercised. The decision is fully justified, as Jones has been disappointingly average in his tenure as a Packer thus far and would command a hefty $6.57 million. However, defensive coordinator Dom Capers hasn't written off the UCLA product quite yet. Jones will reportedly shift to an 'elephant linebacker' role in 2016 as a means for him to play both alongside, and in place of, teammate Julius Peppers. Should Jones prove effective in his new role, he may earn a deal similar to that of Green Bay's 2012 first-round pick, Nick Perry, who signed a one-year, $5 million contract after having his own fifth-year option declined a year before.

Brandon Burks
No Updates
Herb Waters
No Updates
Kenny Clark
News
The Packers selected Clark in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 27th overall.

Clark has the combination of athleticism and stockiness that general manage Ted Thompson tends to look for in defensive lineman, and he heads to Green Bay after a very productive final season for UCLA. He posted 75 tackles (11 for a loss) and six sacks for the Bruins last year, though he might not immediately see a big play count in a Green Bay defense with names like Mike Daniels, Letroy Guion, Josh Boyd and Datone Jones contributing in three-man fronts.

Blake Martinez
News
The Packers selected Martinez in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 131st overall.

Martinez was a leading contributor on an always tough Stanford defense, leading the Cardinal in tackles in each of the last two years. Martinez is light for a 3-4 inside linebacker (237 pounds) but demonstrated above average athleticism at the Combine, and he should push Jake Ryan for snaps right away.

Letroy Guion
News
Guion signed a three-year extension with the Packers on Friday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Guion's three year extension could see him make up to $11.75 million and will keep him in green and gold until he is 31. The Packers have now locked up long-term deals with Guion and fellow defensive tackle Mike Daniels. This could be an indication that B.J. Raji, who is slated to become a free agent next month, is on his way out of Green Bay. Guion has four sacks and 65 tackles in his two seasons with the Packers.

JC Tretter
News
The Packers activated center/guard JC Tretter from short-term injured reserve and released former first-round offensive tackle Derek Sherrod, the team announced. Tretter suffered a knee injury right before the season.
Sam Shields
News
Shields (concussion) is listed as active Saturday in Arizona, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Active status implies that Shields has been cleared from the concussion protocol. When compounded with the healthy scratch of rookie cornerback LaDarius Gunter, Shields appears poised to take on a significant workload, though Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com warned earlier Saturday that the veteran corner may be contained to a limited role.

Jared Abbrederis
News
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy complimented Abbrederis on the final day of the team's offseason program, saying that the third-year wideout plays his position "technically and fundamentally at a very high level," the Packers' official site reports.

The Packers will likely have a slew of wideouts competing for playing time behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, with Abbrederis, Jeff Janis and Ty Montgomery (ankle) all hoping to unseat incumbent No. 3 receiver Davante Adams, who struggled through an ugly 2015 campaign. Abbrederis caught just nine passes in 10 games last season, and he still seems more likely to land fifth or sixth on the depth chart than third or fourth.

Lane Taylor
News
Packers starting cornerback Sam Shields is active for Monday's game against the Falcons after being listed as questionable with a concussion. Also suiting up are defensive tackle Josh Boyd (knee), defensive tackle Mike Daniels (back), guard T.J. Lang (ankle), linebacker Nick Perry (shoulder), guard Josh Sitton (toe) and guard Lane Taylor (illness).

Mike Daniels
News
Daniels finished the 2015 season with 49 tackles (27 solo), four sacks, one forced fumble and one interception.

Daniels has found a home as the Packers' starting defensive end in Dom Capers' 3-4 defense, recording a career high in tackles in 2015. Although the soon-to-be fifth-year player has seen his sack numbers decline in each of the last two seasons, he remains a vital part of Green Bay's run-stopping front. Unfortunately, Daniels' numbers will always be a bit tapered since his position in the 3-4 is often tasked with occupying blockers and allowing others to make tackles.

Randall Cobb
News
Cobb suffered a punctured lung during the Packers' divisional round loss at Arizona, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

During a spot Wednesday at Super Bowl 50's Radio Row, Cobb revealed the nature of the lung injury that knocked him out of the playoffs, relaying "I punctured my lung." Because he avoided a rib fracture in the process of landing on his back, he speculated that the fact he was miked up played a role in the injury, which left the Packers reeling at wideout in the eventual defeat. Nevertheless, with Jordy Nelson ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL, Aaron Rodgers is poised to have his entire arsenal of weapons healthy at the outset of next season.

Ty Montgomery
News
Montgomery (ankle) is still sidelined at Packers' OTAs, but head coach Mike McCarthy has no "long-term concerns" with the injury, Lori Nickel of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Montgomery was evidently a big part of Green Bay's 2015 plans before suffering a high ankle sprain in the second quarter of Week 6; the 2015 third-round selection recorded three starts at wide receiver and flashed electricity on kick returns. Montgomery was then relentless in returning to help his team make a playoff push, but ultimately re-aggravated his ankle before opting for surgery in December. Now, Montgomery has reportedly learned the importance of allowing his body to heal fully, and although he is reportedly pain-free and can do some running and cutting, there isn't even a guess as to when he may return.

Jared Cook
News
Cook underwent foot surgery earlier in the week and will miss the rest of the Packers' OTAs, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Cook was brought in by the Packers during the offseason on a one-year contract to add depth at tight end alongside Richard Rodgers, but the team will have to remain patient while Cook heals from this recent foot surgery. The procedure was described as "preventative" to ensure a minor issue doesn't turn into something serious during the regular season. The team expects to have their 6-foot-5 tight end back for training camp, but they won't rush their newest offensive weapon as he'll be an important piece of the puzzle throughout 2016.

Sam Barrington
News
Barrington (ankle) has yet to receive medical clearance, the Packers' official site reports.

With the help of seven starts in 14 appearances during the 2014 campaign, Barrington posted 53 tackles (40 solo) and one sack. He held stature as a starter next to Clay Matthews in Week 1 last season, but Barrington sustained a season-ending ankle injury 15 snaps into 2014, which held him out of the majority of on-field work during the offseason program. Once cleared, Barrington is expected to compete with the likes of rookie Blake Martinez and Jake Ryan at inside linebacker, with both spots up for grabs as Matthews returns to his long-time spot on the outside.

Injury
Ankle -
Andrew Quarless
News
Quarless (knee) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Friday.

Quarless missed the vast majority of this season due to a knee issue, which required fluid draining earlier this week. With concerns over his health and effectiveness going forward, the Packers decided to shut Quarless down for the year, opening the door for Justin Perillo to serve as Richard Rodgers' main backup at tight end ahead of Saturday's playoff game in Arizona.

Jordy Nelson
News
Nelson (knee) won't participate in 11-on-11 activities until training camp, even though he said he would be able to play in a game if the Packers had one this weekend, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Nelson has participated throughout the Packers' offseason program, even catching passes from Aaron Rodgers on Thursday. The 31-year-old wideout might be a bit optimistic in his self-assessment, but it doesn't actually matter if he's game-ready, as Week 1 is still more than three months away. Given that he tore his ACL in August, it will come as no surprise if Nelson has a perfectly normal training camp. The Packers have improved depth in the receiving corps, after relying heavily on Nelson and Randall Cobb in 2014, and then turning to a slew of unreliable options for much of last season. Davante Adams, Jeff Janis, Ty Montgomery (ankle) and Jared Abbrederis will compete for roles behind Nelson and Cobb, with Richard Rodgers and Jared Cook duking things out at tight end. Furthermore, the team has a pair of capable pass-catching backs in Eddie Lacy and James Starks, though neither is particularly adept at getting open.

Sean Richardson
News
Richardson (neck) has been cleared for on-field, non-contact workouts, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 2015 season came to an abrupt close for Richardson, who sustained the second herniated disc of his career and subsequently underwent cervical spinal fusion. Receiving clearance to work on the field -- sans contact, of course -- is an encouraging sign in the special teamer's quest to return to the NFL. However, his former employer, the Packers, has been stingy in the past with players boasting neck concerns -- see Jermichael Finley and Nick Collins -- so it's unclear if Richardson will ever achieve his ultimate goal.

Robertson Daniel

Justin Perillo
News
Perillo (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday at Arizona, Duke Bobber of the Packers' official site reports.

After suffering a hamstring injury at practice Thursday, Perillo was listed as a non-participant on Friday's injury report. With Andrew Quarless back in the picture, though, Perillo will be afforded a week of rest.

Julius Peppers
News
Peppers finished his fourteenth season with 37 tackles, including 10.5 sacks.

Peppers saw his sack total go from seven in his first year in Green Bay to 10.5 last season, an even more impressive increase when you consider that his defensive snap percentage dropped from 73.9 to 66.6 percent from his first year as a Packer to his second. The reduction in snap percentage is likely an effort to increase his longevity and effectiveness, and it appears to have done both, with Peppers expected to return for his 15th season, for which he'll be 36 years old. He started every game last season and has been very effective as a pass rusher since joining the Packers in 2014. As a result, there's nothing to indicate that he won't be equally impactful in 2016.

Clay Matthews
News
Matthews is expected to move back to his preferred outside linebacker position beginning in OTAs this week, ESPN.com reports.

Matthews spent the past season-and-a-half filling in at inside linebacker quite successfully, but is expected to return to his usual edge-rushing position this season. That switch back to outside linebacker should begin in OTAs this week, when rookie Blake Martinez's presence gives the Packers another option to play inside. With projected starters Sam Barrington and Jake Ryan also around, Matthews should be able to play outside on a nearly full-time basis this season, which figures to boost his pass-rushing numbers after a reduced tally of 6.5 sacks last term.

Tim Masthay
No Updates
John Crockett
News
Crockett suited up for Sunday's game against the Cardinals and tallied four carries for minus-one yard in the Packers' loss.

Crockett was in uniform Sunday for the first time since Week 13, but he was not involved in the offense until after starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers was removed from the game, so it's unlikely he will be much of a factor in the Packers' key Week 17 matchup with the Vikings.

Morgan Burnett
News
Burnett finished the 2015 season with 68 tackles (47 solo), two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in 11 games.

Burnett started the 2015 season with a lingering calf injury, missing five of the Packer's first six games, so it's important to take the free safety's stat line with a grain of salt. The seventh year player remains a vital part of Dom Capers' defense and he will be on the field making tackles if he can stay injury-free. Since 2011, in seasons where Burnett has played 15 or more regular season games, he has recorded an average of 119.7 tackles and two interceptions, making him a great fantasy option when he is healthy.

Marquise Williams

Aaron Ripkowski
News
Quarterback and fifth-round pick Brett Hundley headlines a trio of just-drafted rookies signed by the Packers on Thursday, sources have told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Also reportedly signed to four-year contracts are fourth-round linebacker Jake Ryan and sixth-round fullback Aaron Ripkowski.

Lerentee McCray
News
Broncos wideout Demaryius Thomas (ankle) and running back C.J. Anderson (ankle) are active for the game against Buffalo after being listed as probable.

Also suiting up for Denver are offensive tackle Paul Cornick (shoulder), defensive tackle Terrance Knighton (elbow), linebacker Lerentee McCray (illness), center Will Montgomery (knee), defensive end Quanterus Smith (ribs), cornerback Aqib Talib (hamstring), tight end Jacob Tamme (ribs) and running back Juwan Thompson (knee).

Quinten Rollins
News
Rollins hasn't practiced since the first OTA due to a dislocated finger, Joseph Bonham of TotalPackers.com reports.

Rollins suffered a gruesome injury last week when his finger shifted and came through his skin, forcing him to have stitches. It's unclear exactly what happened to cause the injury, but it's been enough to force him to watch OTAs from the sidelines. He's since had the stitches removed but has yet to be cleared to return to practice. The injury is not expected to hinder Rollins when training camp rolls around.

Lucas Patrick
No Updates
Kennard Backman
News
The Packers have promoted Justin Perillo from the practice squad, reports Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Perillo will provide depth at tight end behind Richard Rodgers and Kennard Backman, but it's unlikely he will provide much Fantasy value even if one or both goes down with an injury.

Kentrell Brice

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
News
Clinton-Dix recorded 100 tackles to go along with three sacks, two interceptions, and one forced fumble during the 2015 season.

Clinton-Dix increased his numbers across the board from his rookie to his sophomore season. Along with this, he saw his defensive snap percentage go from 86.1 percent in his first year to 99.7 percent in his last campaign, establishing him as a key cog in what was a vastly improved Green Bay defense. With the possible exception of Casey Hayward, who is a free agent, the Packers are set to return all of the players from last season's defensive backfield. Clinton-Dix is likely to see another year of very high usage along with continued improvement as he'll enter his third year in the league.

Micah Hyde
News
Hyde (hip) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Bears.

With 45 tackles and a pick in 10 games to date, Hyde has carved out some utility in deeper IDP formats, with his absence Thursday representing a hit to the Packers' Week 12 safety corps.

Mason Crosby
News
The Packers and Crosby agreed to a four-year contract Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Tuesday's deadline to use the the franchise or transitional tag came and went, but only a few hours later, Crosby's agent revealed the development. During a Week 2 victory versus the Seahawks this past season, he drew past predecessor Ryan Longwell into the top spot in points in Packers annals and currently resides at 1,145 points in his nine-year career. The upcoming contract will last through his age-35 season, so considering he upholds his standard, he's put himself in position to be a Packer for life.

Josh Walker
News
The Colts waived running back Dion Lewis and signed defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles off the Patriots' practice squad. Indianapolis also signed guard David Arkin to its practice squad while releasing guard Josh Walker from the squad.
Richard Rodgers
News
Rodgers (hip) secured five of eight targets for 45 yards in Saturday's 26-20 divisional round overtime loss to the Cardinals.

With Davante Adams (knee) sidelined and Randall Cobb (chest) exiting the game early, Rodgers equaled his second-highest target total of the season. He acquitted himself well overall as a safety valve target for Aaron Rodgers, who was up against a fierce Cardinals pass rush that had taken him down eight times in their Week 16 meeting. The second-year pro turned in a very solid sophomore campaign, boosting his catch total to 58 and hauling in an impressive eight touchdowns. He also was targeted an abundant 85 times, a number partially influenced by wideout Jordy Nelson's season-long absence.

Kyle Murphy

Mike Pennel
News
Pennel has been suspended four games for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

An undrafted free agent in 2014, Pennel served behind B.J. Raji and Letroy Guion last season, notching one sack among 25 tackles. The Packers have already inked Guion to a three-year deal, and Raji may leave in free agency, leaving more snaps available to Pennel once he fulfills the suspension. However, the preceding is assuming Pennel even lands a spot on the eventual 53-man roster.

Injury
Suspension -
Eddie Lacy
News
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy should be able to reach his targeted weight before the season, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Lacy's weight has been a frequent subject of offseason discussion, with reports suggesting he's already dropped about 20 pounds since the end of his poor 2015 campaign. The Packers won't comment on his target weight, but it does seem the running back still has work to do, even though the team is pleased with his progress so far. Assuming he's in decent shape, Lacy is well positioned for a bounce-back season in what should be an efficient Green Bay offense,

Jake Ryan
News
Ryan led the Packers with 10 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Ryan replaced an ineffective Nate Palmer in the first half of Sunday's loss and made a number of plays in the first extended action of his professional career. His Week 9 showing should earn him more snaps moving forward, and could even earn him a starting job.

Carl Bradford
News
The following players have been deemed inactive for the Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game: DuJuan Harris, Demetri Goodson, Carl Bradford, Garth Gerhart, Justin Perillo, Jeff Janis and Bruce Gatson.

The Packers are currently 8-point underdogs against the Seahawks Sunday.

Brett Hundley
News
Quarterback and fifth-round pick Brett Hundley headlines a trio of just-drafted rookies signed by the Packers on Thursday, sources have told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Also reportedly signed to four-year contracts are fourth-round linebacker Jake Ryan and sixth-round fullback Aaron Ripkowski.

Don Barclay
News
Restricted free agent tackle Don Barclay signed a tender sheet with the Packers on Thursday, returning to the club for his fourth season, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com.

Earlier reports said the Packers tendered Barclay at the lowest level of $1.542 million. He missed the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL after starting 14 games for the team in 2013.

James Jones
News
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that the team is not focused on re-signing James Jones, Weston Hokiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Released by both the Raiders and Giants last year, Jones temporarily revived his career after landing back in Green Bay, posting a 50-890-8 receiving line in 16 games. He shouldn't have too much trouble finding a new home, but he'll likely have to prove that he's worthy of a roster spot when not playing with Aaron Rodgers. Soon to be 32 years old, Jones is unlikely to establish fantasy value outside of Green Bay. For their part, the Packers seem happy to move forward with Jeff Janis and Jared Abbrederis competing for playing time alongside Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson (knee).

Joe Thomas
News
Thomas (knee) is active Sunday against the Chiefs.

At left tackle, Thomas is the anchor of the Cleveland offensive line. His absence could have meant struggles in both pass protection and the running game, but Thomas hasn't missed a game in his career, and he'll keep that streak alive Sunday. With Alex Mack (calf) and Cameron Erving (ankle) also listed as active, the Cleveland offensive line will send out their regular starting five, even if they may be operating at less than 100 percent.

Aaron Rodgers
News
Rodgers relayed Monday that he has no restrictions after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery earlier in the offseason, Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. "I'm feeling really good right now," Rodgers added.

Mere cleanups, such as the one performed on his knee, generally don't have a long-lasting impact, and Rodgers' recovery appears to be no different. Monday marked the first day of the Packers' offseason program, which head coach Mike McCarthy noted in February would include Rodgers. Because the preceding came to fruition and Rodgers is feeling no ill effects from the procedure, he can now look forward to rebuilding his rapport with Jordy Nelson (knee), who was able to participate Monday as well.

Jay Elliott
News
The Packers are in good shape heading into their Week 12 game at Minnesota. Their only ruled-out player is tight end Brandon Bostick (hip).

The questionables are cornerback Jarrett Bush (groin) and linebackers Nick Perry (shoulder) and Jayrone Elliott (hamstring). The probables are guards Josh Sitton (toe) and T.J. Lang (ankle) and linebacker Clay Matthews (groin).

Mike Neal
News
Packers linebacker Mike Neal has been removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list on Monday and can begin practicing with the team, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Neal underwent hernia surgery during the offseason, which caused him to miss the beginning of training camp, but he said the injury has healed.

"I wanted to practice the first day we had practice, but the timetable was set by Dr. and [general manager] Ted [Thompson]," he said. "It was just one of those things that they wanted to go through and watch me and see how it felt. We just made a decision in the morning we'd go with it. There was no need to hold out any longer. I'd been out for a while. So it was time to get back out there."

Demetri Goodson
News
Goodson has been suspended for the first four games of the 2016 regular season for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Goodson will be free to participate in all of the Packers' offseason and preseason preparations, but will be forced to miss the first quarter of the upcoming regular season. A depth cornerback that saw more playing time toward the end of last season, Goodson's absence will open the door for teammates to fill his role on defense and special teams.

Josh Sitton
News
The Packers announced Friday quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf) and running back Eddie Lacy (knee) are both listed as probable for Sunday's NFC title game at Seattle. Defensive end Josh Boyd (ankle) and guard Josh Sitton (toe) are also probable.

"Aaron is getting ready to play," McCarthy said during his Friday press conference. "Looks good. Everything is on schedule."

McCarthy also had a positive report on Lacy.

"Looks good to me," McCarthy said.

The Seahawks are considered 7 1/2-point favorites for Sunday's game.

David Bakhtiari
News
The Packers injury report for Friday can be described as the "Killer B's." The last names of four of the five players on it start with that letter.

Wide receiver Jarrett Boykin (groin) has been ruled out while linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) is questionable and tackle David Bakhtiari (back) and defensive tackle Josh Boyd (knee) are probable.

The only exception is defensive tackle Datone Jones (ankle), who is questionable.

T.J. Lang
News
Packers defensive lineman T.J. Lang left Sunday's preseason game. The team later announced that Lang was being evaluated for a possible concussion. 
John Kuhn
News
The Packers are not expected to re-sign Kuhn, Radio 620 WTMJ reports.

Following an eight-year stint in Green Bay, the 33-year-old Kuhn, a long-time fan favorite, will have to look for a new home. The Packers are set to move forward with 2015 sixth-round selection Aaron Ripkowski as their top fullback.

Kyler Fackrell
News
The Packers selected Fackrell in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 88th overall.

Fackrell is a big and versatile linebacker, standing at 6-foot-5, 245 pounds and with the ability to play either on the edge or off the ball. He's not the most disruptively explosive linebacker, but Fackrell is a smooth athlete who should be able to provide Green Bay with snaps at both inside and outside linebacker.

Dean Lowry
News
The Packers selected Lowry in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 137th overall.

Lowry is a huge figure and an intriguing 3-4 end prospect for the Packers, standing at 6-foot-6, 296 pounds with standout athleticism for such a big lineman. His athleticism is only average when compared to defensive ends, but when compared to the more similar position of defensive tackle, Lowry grades as an elite athlete.

Nick Perry
News
The Packers and Perry agreed to a one-year contract Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Perry has battled injuries and bouts of ineffectiveness since he was selected in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. However, he came to life in the Packers' pair of postseason tilts this past season, totaling 3.5 sacks among eight tackles and a forced fumble. If he's able to channel such production over an entire campaign, he could parlay this one-year deal into a big payday. More likely, though, his final defensive snap count will linger around the 33.4 percent he received in 2015.

Chris Banjo
News
Packers safety Chris Banjo signed his exclusive-rights tender on Friday, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

The tender is good for one year and is worth $585,000 for the 2015 season. 

B.J. Raji
News
Raji plans to retire from football, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

Raji's intention to retire comes as he hit the free agent market following his seventh season in Green Bay. Drafted ninth overall in 2009, Raji was instrumental on the Packers' Super Bowl-winning team in 2010, registering a career-best 39 tackles and 6.5 sacks. Since then, Raji's performance level steeply declined, evidenced by just 3.5 total sacks, and he also missed the entire 2014 campaign due to a preseason biceps tear. At 30 years old, it appears Raji is ready to call time on his NFL career, taking his name out of consideration from potential suitors.

Jeff Janis
News
At last week's Combine, head coach Mike McCarthy pondered whether Janis can "take that next step" in 2016, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "Great kid, hard-working, very powerful," McCarthy added. "But there were just a lot of things, when he does them, they're for the first time. Hopefully we're out of that phase of his development...He made the step in your second year that you look for. He did it first on special teams."

Janis was a persona non grata for much of his second campaign, primarily because he was raw as a receiver. First, though, he had to gain the trust of McCarthy on special teams, which turned into a season-long affair and resulted exactly two regular season catches for the second year in a row. Pressed into duty in the divisional round at Arizona due to Randall Cobb's lung injury, Janis kickstarted the offense, corralling seven of 11 targets for 145 yards and two touchdowns. The performance endured Janis further to the coaching staff, but his development in the offseason will ultimately determine his next step as a professional.

Corey Linsley
News
The Packers placed starting center JC Tretter on injured reserve/designated to return with a knee injury. He won't be eligible to play until Week 9.

In the meantime, rookie Corey Linsley will start at center, starting Thursday at Seattle.
