Q&A: Should Evans Be Re-Signed?

Unlike the U.S. Postal Service, Packers Notes delivers on Sundays – at least through the end of August.

Keeping Randall Is Best Option

Ted Thompson finally got to pick up the fifth-year option on one of his first-round picks last spring. After declining to do so on Derek Sherrod (2011), Nick Perry (2012) and Datone Jones (2013), the former general manager of the Packers pulled the trigger on Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (2014).

It would’ve been unrealistic for him to keep the new general manager above the coach in the team’s hierarchy. Mike McCarthy adhering to the same chain of command with Brian Gutekunst that he

Moncrief Makes Sense For Packers

There’s really no way to tell how new general manager Brian Gutekunst will approach free agency in a few months, but it would be a bit of a surprise if he doesn’t show at least some interest in Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Donte Moncrief. While the former Ole Miss star’s career in Indy has been
