Spriggs Won’t Sit For Long

General manager Ted Thompson didn’t boldly trade up in the second round of last year’s draft to select Jason Spriggs only to have him sit on the sidelines until he leaves as an unrestricted free agent in 2020. The former Indiana star will eventually be the team’s starting right tackle – it just won’t be this season. That’s because of

Scouting Report: Davon House

Davon House can blame a scheme change for his problems in Jacksonville – a theory the lazy media seems more than willing to accept – but a study of the tape tells a different story. Green Bay’s kinda new cornerback wasn’t asked to play much differently in 2016; he simply didn’t play as well as

Ty Shouldn’t Be THE Guy

I don’t see Ty Montgomery as a true No. 1 running back, and as maybe the only person to project the former Stanford star as a ball carrier and not a ball catcher on the day he was drafted in April 2015, I think I have a pretty good feel for No. 88. I know

Scouting Report: Lance Kendricks

There’s a reason it’s important to watch tape – it’s the only way you can give a truly informed opinion on a player. For example, if I didn’t watch almost every snap Lance Kendricks played last season I would never have known the newest Green Bay Packer is such an effective run blocker. In fact,

Scouting Report: Martellus Bennett

General manager Ted Thompson was very close to re-signing Jared Cook on Thursday morning. Less than 36 hours later Martellus Bennett was the team’s new starting tight end. Hey Packers fans, welcome to the wacky world of free agency. Bennett, who turned 30 on the same day he joined the Packers, signed a 3-year contract

Tale Of The Tape: Bennett vs. Cook

The Packers surprisingly swapped tight ends over the weekend. Hours after breaking off talks with Jared Cook, the team signed Martellus Bennett. So is this an upgrade, and if so, how much? Here’s a comparison of the players based on watching a lot of tape from last season: BLOCKING: Cook will never be as good

Line Would Miss Lang

Since the offensive line functioned just fine without one Pro Bowl guard, it’s easy to assume it would do the same without another Pro Bowl guard. Well, you know the old saying about what happens when you assume. Unless GM Ted Thompson signs a proven veteran or uses a high drat pick at the position,

Guion Should Be Gone

I didn’t think Letroy Guion was worth bringing back even before Tuesday, so imagine my surprise to find out the team was sticking with the veteran nose tackle even after he was suspended for the first 4 games of next season for PEDs. Since 2014, the 29-year-old former Florida State star has more suspensions (2)

Notes: Latest On Lang

T.J. Lang wants to stay with the Packers, and the Packers want to keep the Pro Bowl guard. Now the two sides need to compromise to make it happen. The player will have to take a less money, and the team will have to spend more than it wants. Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports reported over the weekend

Perry By The Sack

Nick Perry is going to be a fascinating player to watch in the next few weeks. How much should Green Bay or any team pay a 3-4 outside linebacker who’s averaged only 6 sacks per season, but had 11 in 2016? The answer would be around $10M per if you believe last season was a glimpse into the
