Jason Spriggs

Preview: Packers vs. Steelers

Here are four questions heading into tonight’s game between Green Bay and Pittsburgh: 1) Should the Packers have signed Colin Kaepernick when Aaron Rodgers went down? Of course, and this isn’t second-guessing after watching Brett Hundley for the past five games. Here’s what I tweeted a few minutes after Rodgers got hurt in week 6:

Q&A: Will Burnett Be Extended?

I‘ll be answering your questions each Saturday from now until the end of the 2017 season (hopefully that’ll be in February). Here are some of this week’s submissions: Is this Morgan Burnett’s last season in Green Bay? His contract is up this year, and despite being 28, it feels like he should be 34 as long

What’s Wrong With Spriggs?

Ted Thompson traded up for Jason Spriggs in the 2016 draft – something he does about as often as a Kardashian reads a book. That’s how much Green Bay’s conservative general manager liked the left tackle from Indiana. But after a pair of preseason games, it’s fair to wonder if Thompson is regretting that decision.

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. WAS

After “studying the tape” (that sounds better than “turning on the computer”), here are the heroes and the zeros from Saturday’s 21-17 preseason win over Washington: HEROES BACKUP QUARTERBACKS – Brett Hundley‘s numbers were excellent (9 of 10 for 107 yards and 1 TD), but they don’t do him justice. Under decent pressure and with

Tale Of The Tape: GB vs. PHI

After “studying the tape” (that sounds a heck of a lot better than “turning on the computer”), here are the heroes and the zeros from Thursday night’s 24-9 preseason opening win over the Philadelphia Eagles: HEROES UNHERALDED YOUNG DEFENSIVE BACKS – Second-round pick Josh Jones had a solid debut, but the best defensive backs on this

Q&A: Who’s The Biggest Surprise?

Packers Notes contributor Robert Tanner has been at three practices so far this summer and he was gracious enough to answer some of your burning questions. Who’s been the biggest disappointment and the biggest surprise so far? – Rachel It’s still very early, but Damarious Randall has been the biggest disappointment. The No. 1 pick

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

Positional Analysis: Offensive Tackle

This is the sixth of a 14-part series examining each position going into the offseason. Starters (A-): Last September, GM Ted Thompson signed left tackle David Bakhtiari to an extension worth $12 million per. Amazingly, he got a bargain. That’s how well the 25-year-old played last season. The former Colorado star was terrific in pass protection,

Spriggs Surviving At Guard

It was actually painful to watch Jason Spriggs on tape. Not because of the way the rookie right guard played against Houston on Sunday, but because he had to work so darn hard. I’ve seen a lot of football over the past 35 years, and I can’t remember an offensive lineman exerting so much energy on almost every snap. Why
