Breaking Down Adams’ Deal

The Packers signed wide receiver Davante Adams to a 4-year deal worth over $58 million on Friday. Here’s a quick look at the pros and the cons of this transaction: PROS -Signing Adams had been a top priority since the summer, and general manager Ted Thompson and VP of football administration/player finance Russ Ball were able

Adams Proves His Worth

Free-agent-to-be Davante Adams bet on himself in 2017, and despite a devastating hit that sent him to the hospital in week 5, that decision has proven to be a wise one. The fourth-year wide receiver will likely end the season worth at least $2 million per year more than he began it. That’s because Adams

Walk-Off Win For Packers

The silly narrative that Aaron Rodgers isn’t a clutch player took a hit on Sunday in Chicago when the two-time MVP and future Hall of Famer made yet another throw for the ages. And unlike so many other times in his storied career, on this day he didn’t leave enough time on the clock for

Notes: Money For Nothing

The Packers are paying wide receiver Randall Cobb, outside linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers and cornerback Sam Shields a combined $34 million this season.

Curb Your Enthusiasm

Here’s what we know about the Packers after 6 games – they’re better than the Jaguars, Lions, Giants and Bears and not as good as the Vikings and Cowboys. What will that get them? Probably another trip to the playoffs and another quick exit. Look, it’s OK to feel good about a win. As head coach

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. DAL

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are 10 additional thoughts from Sunday’s game against the Cowboys: —Sunday was Aaron Rodgers’ poorest performance since I starting watching the All-22 coaches tape. He’s put up much worse stats, but I can’t remember a game in which he

5 Packers Poised To Leap

Mike McCarthy talks all the time about the importance of players making a leap from one year to the next. Among the reasons the Packers struggled in 2015 was because safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and to a lesser extent left tackle David Bakhtiari were the only jumpers on the team. For things to go better in

Six Is Enough At Wide Receiver

The Packers currently have 6 veteran wide receivers and a fifth-round draft pick on the roster, so a popular question these days is whether all 7 will begin next season as part of the final 53? But in reality, a more pertinent question – at least based on the players involved – is whether that will even be a legitimate option?

Don’t Dismiss Adams

It started with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Tom Silverstein writing that wide receiver Davante Adams’ roster spot might not be secure. Soon that possibility was popping up all over the internet, thanks in large part to the many Packers blogs that simply regurgitate the opinions of others – no matter how unrealistic. Adams isn’t going
