Casey Hayward

The One That Got Away

Former Packers cornerback Casey Hayward, who’s playing extremely well for the San Diego Chargers, picked off his league-leading fifth pass of the season last Sunday. Meanwhile, Green Bay’s entire defense has 7 interceptions in eight games. It’s still hard to figure out why GM Ted Thompson, who typically holds onto his own young players like

The Case For Keeping Hayward

Casey Hayward will probably wind up being too expensive to re-sign, but general manager Ted Thompson would be foolish not to try very hard to keep the talented young corner. The primary reason Green Bay’s defense improved last season was the play of the secondary, and Hayward was one of its best performers. I keep

Looking Ahead To Free Agency

With running back Eddie Lacy and 60% of the offensive line due to become unrestricted free agents in 2017, general manager Ted Thompson will face his most challenging offseason since the Summer of Favre. And while 2016 won’t be quite as imposing, it won’t be a walk in the park either. Six starters and kicker Mason Crosby

Secondary To None

The biggest tests are still to come, but after five games no secondary is playing any better than Green Bay’s. And that’s without safety Morgan Burnett – arguably the team’s best defensive back a year ago – for four of those contests.

10 Most Important Packers

Aaron Rodgers is obviously irreplaceable, but he’s not the only player the team can’t afford to be without. Here’s my list of the 10 most important Packers heading into the 2015 season: 1) QB AARON RODGERS – This is a no-brainer. There’s no better player in the league, and the gap between Green Bay’s No. 1

Backup QBs Are Struggling

This info was compiled by Robert Tahan. -I like Scott Tolzien more than Michael, but his first two practices have been less than inspiring. The projected No. 2 quarterback hasn’t been overly accurate

Notebook: Can’t Count On Khyri

On the surface, it’s surprising how little excitement surrounds the return of Khyri Thornton, the second-year defensive lineman who spent all of last season on injured reserve with a strained hamstring. After all, GM Ted Thompson thought enough of the former Southern Miss star to select him in the third round of last April’s draft. But to
