Lions agree to contract with former Packers WR Geronimo Allison

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports The former Illinois and Green Bay receiver is headed to another team in the division. It was a safe assumption that Geronimo Allison would not return to the Green Bay Packers in 2020. After buying out his restricted free agency year in 2019 with a one-year contract, the Packers allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Now, he has a new home, and it's within the NFC North. Allison has agreed to a contract with the Detroit Lions, according to...

Packers Rumors: Latest on Aaron Jones' Contract Talks, Denzel Mims, More

Packers’ contract with Devin Funchess worth $2.5 million plus extra $3.75M in incentives

Photo by Justin Casterline/Getty Images The soon-to-be Packers receiver could actually earn more in incentives than the base value of his deal if he has a huge season in 2020. Earlier this week, the Green Bay Packers landed their veteran receiver on the free agent market. Devin Funchess appears headed to Green Bay barring an unexpected turn of events, as the big former Panthers and Colts receiver will try to work his way back into a starting role. Funchess’ 2019 season was all but lost due...

A Look at the Packers 2020 Passing Game

The much-maligned Packers’ pass-catchers will look a lot different in 2020. But before we look to the future let’s hop in Doc’s DeLorean and go back to last summer. Entering the 2019 season the Packers receivers were, well, a bit of an unknown. Personally, I was excited. I thought the receiving crew had a shot to surprise many NFL prognosticators who had them ranked anywhere from 15 to 21 in the league. Davante Adams was coming off the best season of his career. Geronimo had a strong...

Expect Brian Gutekunst to Make a Trade on Draft Day

  This will be the third NFL Draft for Packers GM Brian Gutekunst and one thing Packers fans can expect is that some trades will be made on draft day. Gutekunst has made moves in the first round in each of his previous drafts in order to secure specific players he had his eyes on. The results have been mostly positive with the Packers adding an extra first-round pick in 2019. Here is a look back at the draft day trades made by Gutekunst in his first two years with the Packers: 2018: The...

Imagining the ripple effects if the Packers had picked Harrison Smith over Nick Perry

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports The Packers saw a future All-Pro taken one pick after their selection in round one of the 2012 NFL Draft. The last decade would have been very different had they picked the Notre Dame safety instead of a West Coast pass-rusher. Looks back at the NFL Draft are often taken far too soon. It seems that every year, media analysts examine the previous year’s draft to see how they would have re-ordered the first round or two based on the results of one NFL...

Derek Wolfe: An Intriguing F/A Target for the Packers

While the Packers’ humdrum free-agent haul to this point ranks somewhere between sorting through two-weeks worth of junk mail and waiting in line at the post office, defensive lineman Derek Wolfe stands out as an unclaimed option that could chip in and shore up a less-than-impenetrable run defense. Though much of the offseason scuttlebutt has centered around bringing in new talent at linebacker, the road to improving the Packers’ defense starts with beefing up the trenches. With the...

How the Packers can win the 2020 NFL Draft

As the second wave of free agency hits, NFL teams are wary of the effects of COVID-19 on their off-season plans. Front office gatherings are prohibited, and team facilities are closed. Properly evaluating medicals, and coming to a consensus on players could become a challenge. The brass at 1265 Lombardi will have to take risks to get this team over the hump and back in the Super Bowl. The worldwide pandemic certainly means that rookies will get little to no practice time this summer. Thus, a...

Rodgers details frenzied departure from Peru

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers detailed the "absolute pandemonium" that took place as he got out of Peru with minutes to spare before the airport was shut down.

Aaron Rodgers barely escaped Peru before coronavirus border closure

The coronavirus pandemic has impacted pretty much everyone in some way, but it’s safe to say not many will have a story like the one Aaron Rodgers can tell. On Friday, the Green Bay Packers quarterback joined “McAfee & Hawk: Sports Talk” and revealed that he had nearly been stranded in Peru as the pandemic worsened. Rodgers and three companions were traveling South America and had to rush to the packed airport to get out of Peru just before the country closed its borders to try to slow...

Brian Gutekunst and the Packers love to throw darts with high-upside athletes on the third day of the draft. Who are the players who could fit that profile this year?

When it comes to the NFL draft, the Green Bay Packers are like that one friend who always dates the same kind of person. Unlike that friend, though, the “type”...

Packers Face Very Difficult Free Agent Decisions in 2021

The 2020 free agency period is just over a week old and of course, the season still needs to be played as well. However, in the NFL it is never too early to look ahead and when it comes to the Green Bay Packers 2021 free agency class, it is loaded with key players.  This list includes David Bakhtiari, Kenny Clark, Corey Linsley, Kevin King, and Aaron Jones. All of which as we know, play important roles in Green Bay's success.  Unfortunately, the odds of Green Bay bringing back all five of...

Hurts’ upside as a quarterback might not be at the same level as other prospects in the class, but he might be more versatile.

The NFL Combine is over. Free agency has nearly reached the end of the second week. NFL Draft month is officially upon us.

And with perhaps the greatest reality television show approaching in under a month, it’s time for Shawn’s draft thoughts of the week. We begin today with one of the more intriguing storyline prospects...

Green Bay Packers draft 2020: Seven-round mock draft

We’re going offense-heavy in this 2020 Green Bay Packers mock draft, ladies and gentlemen, and trades had a lot to do with it. Right off the bat, I have the Packers trading up to No. 19 overall (Las Vegas Raiders) in a deal that cost the team its first-rounder (No. 30 overall), its second-round pick, and a fourth- and sixth-round pick. An expensive deal, to be sure, but Green Bay had plenty of capital in the back end that allowed for a few other trades in the middle of the draft. Aaron...

Friday Cheese Curds: Packers’ secondary remains intact, but long-term needs loom

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Do the Packers need to invest in their secondary this offseason? For 2020 they should be in decent shape, but questions loom for 2021 and beyond.

The Green Bay Packers are in a fortunate position this offseason relative to their divisional rivals. The team’s secondary from last year remains almost entirely intact, something that cannot be said for the rest of the NFC North.

Yes, Tramon Williams is a free agent, but although he played well last season and...

Packers bringing back Tyler Ervin

From ESPN: Ervin was a revelation for the Packers return game after being picked up off waivers in early December and showed real promise as a change of pace on offense.  Here's hoping a full offseason (whatever that might end up being in 2020) in the offense helps take that unit to another level.  Ervin, a 5-foot-10, 192-pound fourth-year player out of San Jose State, was originally selected by the Houston Texans in the fourth round (No. 119 overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft.  Like 0...

Packers will re-sign Tyler Ervin to one-year contract, per report

The Swerve is coming back to Green Bay for another go.

Through 12 weeks of the 2019 season, the Green Bay Packers were headed for historic ineptitude in one specific area. The team had amassed negative-eight yards on punt returns over the first three-quarters of the year, putting them on pace to be the first NFL team to finish with negative yardage in that area in a full season.

Then, an inspired waiver claim by general manager Brian Gutekunst turned the...

Seven MORE Possible Day Three Draft Picks for the Packers

I love the NFL Draft. I follow prospects closely and trying to project which guys fit the mold of future Green Bay Packers is fun for me. A few weeks ago, I wrote a piece called “Seven Possible Day Three Draft Picks for the Packers” and I am here today with seven additional players to keep an eye on, because why not? In the comments, you all told me to keep track of these lists to see if we hit on any, so I will definitely do that. And of course, the more lists I make, the likelier it is...

Five surprise teams that could go QB in Round 1 of the 2020 NFL Draft

The 2020 NFL Draft is now officially slated to take place in less than a month. We have no idea how the draft is going to look. What we do know is that all 32 teams will get together in some form and conduct the annual event. Among the most talked about stories leading up to the draft has been the potential landing spots of the best quarterbacks in this year’s class. Joe Burrow will go No. 1 overall to the Cincinnati Bengals. We already know that. After that, it’s going to be interesting...
