10 Questions Heading Into Camp

Training camp is only a few days away, and few teams are more stable than Green Bay heading into the 2016 season. General manager Ted Thompson and head coach Mike McCarthy have been together for over a decade, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been running the offense for nine years and the defensive staff – aside

Tretter Will Start Somewhere In ’17

JC Tretter will be a free agent next March, and between now and then GM Ted Thompson will have to decide whether to keep the talented and versatile young offensive lineman or let him walk away. The adjectives talented, versatile and young would normally guarantee an extension, but there’s nothing normal about this scenario. The former

Ted’s Round 4 Success

General manager Ted Thompson has three fourth-round picks in this month’s draft. Based on recent history, he’d be wise to use all of them on offensive linemen. Since 2005, Thompson has picked guards Josh Sitton (2008) and T.J. Lang (2009), left tackle David Bakhtiari (2013) and center JC Tretter (2013) in the fourth round. They are 4

Packers Rediscover Their Mojo

After sleeping for the better part of the past three months, the Packers’ offense picked the perfect time to wake up. Aaron Rodgers threw a pair of touchdowns, Eddie Lacy averaged over five yards per carry and James Jones caught seven passes in a convincing 35-18 wild-card playoff win over the NFC East champion Redskins. While

Centers Of Attention?

There are 32 starting centers in the National Football League, but only about 20 truly belong in that role. Others, such as Seattle’s Patrick Lewis and Chicago’s Hroniss Grasu, are simply backups being used as stopgaps until a better option becomes available. And that brings us to the Packers. With Corey Linsley and JC Tretter, general

Ha Ha Poised For Big Season

Packers Notes will provide updates from camp whenever we have a person in attendance, so check back for the latest news. Robert Tahan contributed to this report. -Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has a chance to be very good in 2015 after a solid rookie year. The former No. 1 pick from Bama arrived in Green Bay with

Tretter’s A Man For All Positions

You can count on one hand the number of players in the National Football League who have the ability to line up at all five positions along the O-line. It’s unlikely JC Tretter can join that very select group, but the fact that it’s not totally out of the question is a testament to the former

Never Too Early To Plan Ahead

The Green Bay Packers’ offensive line is set through 2016, but then things figure to get very interesting. As of now, left tackle David Bakhtiari, left guard Josh Sitton and right guard T.J. Lang are scheduled to become free agents after that season. It’s highly unlikely all three will be re-signed. So who’s the most likely to
