This Date In Transactions History: Packers Re-Sign TE Robert Tonyan

Two years ago today, a minor transaction by the Packers was tucked into our daily roundup. The move likely went unnoticed by many (the signing of former Alliance of American Football players probably caught more eyes), but fast forward to today, and Green Bay certainly deserves some praise for their under-the-radar move.

Aaron Rodgers says this helped him keep Shailene Woodley engagement a secret

Aaron Rodgers shocked the NFL and gossip communities two months ago when he casually revealed he was engaged during his MVP Award acceptance speech. Many people did not even know the Green Bay Packers star had been dating anyone after his split with Danica Patrick, so how did he and Shailene Woodley manage to keep their relationship so quiet?

APC Community Mock Draft - The Cowboys are ready to pick and close out the top 10

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

With the 9th pick in the draft, the Broncos selected Trey Lance, the rocket-armed QB from North Dakota State. 

Our readers think that the Broncos’ new GM, George Paton, will make a splash and try to upgrade from Drew Lock. With weapons like Jerry Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, and Noah Fant on the roster, Denver could be a great QB away from a potent offense; something they’ll need to keep up with Justin Herbert and Patrick Mahomes in the AFC West.

APC Community Mock Draft: The Broncos are on the board with pick #9

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Will the Broncos look to bolster their defense or start over with a QB in the top 10?

With the 8th pick, the Panthers took the second tackle off the board, going with Rashawn Slater from Northwestern. As long as Slater’s size doesn’t cause him to move inside, the Panthers will hope he’s protecting Sam Darnold for years to come.

The Broncos are up next with pick 9, and experts are divided on their options. The Broncos could pull the plug on the Drew Lock...

Putting together an NFL Draft playbook, plus how it affects the Packers

Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images

We have mountains of historical trends to help us put together smart drafting strategies. We evaluate them at key positions of need for the Packers and figure out how to put them into practice with this draft class.

Not enough NFL front offices listened to classic 90’s R&B — they never learned the lesson not to go chasing waterfalls. Or, rather, outliers. That was how that TLC song went right? Too often teams make decisions in the draft based on an...

APC Community Mock Draft: What will the Panthers do with pick #8?

Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

After trading for Sam Darnold, the Panthers could go in multiple different directions with their first-round pick. 

Welcome back to the last pick on day 4 of the APC Community Mock Draft! At #7, the Lions opted to go WR, picking DeVonta Smith out of Alabama. The Heisman trophy winner will be charged with leading a depleted receiving corps in Detroit. While there are concerns about his frame holding up in the NFL, Smith is a technician who thrives after the...

APC Community Mock Draft: The Lions are up next with pick #7

Columbus Dispatch-USA TODAY Sports

The Dolphins snagged the top WR in the draft, Ja’Marr Chase, at pick 6. The Lions are now on the clock with pick 7. 

We’re up to pick number 7 in the APC Community Mock Draft! The Dolphins’ trade down ultimately worked out in our mock, as they were able to come away with Ja’Marr Chase. While the LSU WR sat out the 2020 season, he was critical to the record-breaking LSU offense in 2019 and Tua Tagovailoa will certainly welcome his big-play ability....

Cornerback? Offensive lineman? Inside linebacker? There is no telling what Brian Gutekunst is thinking

Three weeks from today is the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

APC Community Mock Draft: The Dolphins are on the clock with pick #6

SCOTT CLAUSE/USA TODAY Network, USA TODAY NETWORK via Imagn Content Services, LLC

The Bengals focused on protecting their franchise at #5, picking Penei Sewell from Oregon. It’s time to see who the Dolphins pick at #6 to help their own franchise QB, Tua Tagovailoa.

Much like Trevor Lawrence, Oregon'S Penei Sewell has been a projected top pick for a few years now. With elite strength and athleticism, and at just 20 years old, Sewell should be able to protect Joe Burrow’s blindside for...

Wednesday Cheese Curds: Packers still have plenty of options

The Packers still have many avenues for making their 2021 squad better.

In the just over three years that Brian Gutekunst has been the general manager of the Packers, he’s made one thing very clear: he’s not going to do anything unless he absolutely has to.

Draft a wide receiver just because a bunch of mock drafts project it? “No thanks,” he said. “We’ll stick with the guys we’ve got.”

Commit to a quarterback long term? “Nope,” said...

Who will the Bengals pick at #5 of the APC Community Mock Draft?

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

With the 4th pick, the Falcons stayed put and got Kyle Pitts, a versatile weapon for Matt Ryan and new head coach Arthur Smith. Next up is the Bengals at #5.

Atlanta’s new regime resisted trade offers in the APC Community Mock Draft and picked up tight end Kyle Pitts from Florida, giving the Falcons a receiving corps to be feared and bridge to the future as Julio Jones ages. Next up is the team who picked #1 last year, the Cincinnati Bengals. Helping Joe Burrow...
