Packers sign 6th-round draft pick Jake Hanson to rookie contract

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

This signing leaves the team with just one more member of its 2020 rookie class left to go.

The Green Bay Packers announced a roster transaction on Friday afternoon, inking their penultimate member of their 2020 NFL Draft class to his rookie contract. That player is sixth-round pick Jake Hanson, the second of the team’s three sixth-round selections on the offensive line.

The team used the 208th overall selection on Hanson in April after his successful...

Shopping With The Frenemy, Summer 2020: It’s big, it’s heavy, it’s wood

It’s not better than bad, though.

Every team has a pro shop. Every pro shop carries ridiculous team-branded merchandise. These are their stories.

While “Shopping with the Enemy” usually examines the Green Bay Packers’ opponents, today we take a look at the home team.

Sometimes, a team releases a product so baffling, so utterly terrifying, so mind-bendingly insane, that it must be commented on. The Packers Pro Shop, which has put forth its fair share of tacky, wacky goodness, has a...

Friday Cheese Curds: Lambeau Field loses its first game of 2020

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Big Ten officially canceled the Wisconsin-Notre Dame game that was set for October 3

Lambeau Field has officially lost its first game of 2020.

It’s not a Green Bay Packers game, but the Big Ten announced yesterday that teams will only face other conference teams during its football season this fall.

That means the Notre Dame-Wisconsin game set for early September at Lambeau Field is canceled. The two teams will face off at Soldier Field in 2021 and...

Packers Sign Fifth-Round LB Kamal Martin

The Packers announced that they’ve signed fifth-round linebacker Kamal Martin to his rookie contract. Martin may have been drafted earlier than the fifth round were it not for a knee injury that cost him several games during his senior season at Minnesota.

Packers sign 2020 fifth-round pick Kamal Martin

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers took linebacker Kamal Martin with the 17th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Packers have signed 2020 fifth-round draft choice Kamal Martin, announcing the news themselves Thursday afternoon.

Martin, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound linebacker from the University of Minnesota, was the 175th overall pick in this spring’s draft. Over four seasons with the Golden Gophers, Martin appeared in 40 games, recording 106 solo tackles, 3.5 sacks, and four...

Predicting the Packers’ 2022 starting lineup

Here is one possible way that Green Bay’s key contributors could look over the next three seasons.

Summer is here and the Green Bay Packers’ 53-man roster for the 2020 season has hardly been set. However, there is some level of fun and anticipation in looking down the line at the organization’s potential starting lineup in the next few years, particularly with notable internal free agents after this season.

After a first-round quarterback was...

Thursday Cheese Curds: Majority of Packers fans don't plan on attending a game in 2020

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

According to a Green Bay newspaper, more than half of fans don't plan on coming to Lambeau Field this season thanks to COVID-19

The Green Bay Packers announced last week their plans for limiting seating capacity at Lambeau Field last week and if a new survey is to be believed, a lot of fans are more than ok with it.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette took the pulse of fans and “more than half” of fans surveyed said they would not attend a game this year and a...

The three best salary cap values on the Packers’ 2020 roster

Photo by Stacy Revere/Getty Images

Rookie contracts are almost always good values, but these players provide more excess value than any other Packers heading into the 2020 campaign.

The best monetary values for an NFL team are, almost by definition, players on rookie contracts. Players in the first three years of their careers are cost-controlled to a tremendous extent, even those drafted highly. Those who make a big impact after being drafted late or going entirely undrafted are...

If you were restarting the franchise from scratch, what three players would you pick to build your team around?

We’re rebuilding the Packers.

Why? Because we can.

Among the writing staff at Acme Packing Company we have a few certified Packers owners and enough people with enough time on their hands to make something crazy happen, so we might as well start with a hypothetical full rebuild of the team we love.

Here’s the scenario: you get to pick three...

Why Aaron Rodgers is a poor fit for Davante Adams

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images

Originally titled “Davante Adams is a Poor Fit for Aaron Rodgers.” Changed to be more accurate.

This started as a post about how Sterling Sharpe might be overrated, but while writing it, a few things became apparent pretty quickly.

Sharpe’s efficiency stats were rarely good, but this was through no fault of his own, and it’s not news. Sharpe is obviously great on film, but there’s not really a way to quantify that, and simply writing that...

Wednesday Cheese Curds: NFL stadium rankings, Lynn Dickey’s incredible day, & rivalry talk

Photo by Focus on Sport/Getty Images

Lambeau Field makes the top five (but not the top spot), and Dickey holds an all-time Packers record.

Everyone agrees that Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre, and Bart Starr are the three greatest quarterbacks in Green Bay Packers history, but who is number four? For this writer’s money, that title belongs to Lynn Dickey, whose best years for the team came between 1981 and 1985.

Dickey led the NFL in most passing categories in 1983, including yards,...

The three worst salary cap values on the Packers’ 2020 roster

Photo by Emilee Chinn/Getty Images

Not every contract on the Packers is a winner. Here are a few that don’t seem to be worth it.

Overall, the Green Bay Packers are in pretty good health as far as their cap situation goes. Even with big deals on the books for Aaron Rodgers, Za’Darius and Preston Smith, and a few others, they’re not dramatically over-leveraged or seriously pressed for space in 2020.

But that’s not to say every deal on their cap sheet right now is a winner. The...

Packers CEO Mark Murphy: Practice-squad expansion likely

Nothing official has emerged on a possible COVID-19 injured list, but with expanded practice squads in play, it seems like that such a roster designation would be on the table.

Revisiting the best game by a Packers tight end in the last decade

Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images

Richard Rodgers put an incredible cap on this game, but he was tremendous the rest of the evening as well.

The Green Bay Packers have had some solid tight ends over the last decade, and at the very least have fielded big names. From Jermichael Finley in the early part of the decade to Jared Cook and Jimmy Graham later on, Aaron Rodgers has often thrown to big-time weapons — or at least players who were big-time weapons at some point in their...

Jamaal Williams Remains Reliable Entering Contract Season

After Aaron Jones put the NFL on notice with his 23-touchdown season and the Packers drafted bruising running back A.J. Dillon out of Boston College in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft, it made sense that Jamaal Williams kind of became the forgotten man in the Green Bay backfield.

NFLPA president JC Tretter criticizes NFL’s current plans to begin 2020 season

It looks like football could be headed for similar labor strife to that of other major sports as the start date for training camps approaches.

Although NFL teams are supposed to be opening up team facilities for training camps in about three weeks, the NFL Players Association is becoming more and more vocal about its displeasure with the league’s plans to begin the 2020 season. Leading the charge for the NFLPA is its president,...

Tuesday Cheese Curds: Packers’ OL ranked among the best; a look at the recent NFC North reign

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

PFF ranks the Packers line in the top 5 and the Packers NFC North dominance in the 2010’s is examined.

Being an offensive lineman in the NFL is brutal work, and putting together a solid front in today’s NFL is only getting harder and harder. The Green Bay Packers offensive line had a solid 2019 season, and it consisted of new and old faces that helped propel them to the NFC Championship.

Going into next season, a majority of that same offensive line is...
