Mason Crosby will not hit free agency. The Packers are bringing their longtime kicker back on another extension, according to agent Mike McCartney (on Twitter). The sides agreed to a three-year deal, tethering Crosby to the Packers through the 2022 season. This will be the 35-year-old kicker’s 14th season with Green Bay. Crosby, who made $3.2 million in base salary last season, is by far the longest-tenured kicker in Packers history. He’s played in 208 games with the franchise — 64...

Packers re-sign Mason Crosby

Strike one big thing off Brian Gutekunst's to-do list: Earlier this offseason, Gutekunst had sounded like a guy who was set on bringing Crosby back. “I think when you have a guy who has been through the fire like Mason has, for a guy in my position it makes us feel very comfortable. He obviously had an excellent year last year. He’s a big part of our team, a big part of what we’re trying to do here. I’m very hopeful that will reach the right ending." Outside of Bryan Bulaga, Crosby...

Packers re-sign Mason Crosby to three year contract extension

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers brought back their veteran kicker after the best year of his career.

In 2019, the Green Bay Packers got a career year out of 35-year-old kicker Mason Crosby. Last season was his 13th in the NFL after the team drafted him in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft, and he went 22-for-24 on field goals. That made 2019 the first season of his career when he connected successfully on over 90 percent of his field goals, finishing at 91.7%.

Now, the Packers...

Could the Packers go all-in on small ball defense?

Mike Pettine loves to play sub-package defense to the point it’s no longer fair to call it that. Green Bay’s base defense is nickel or smaller and it’s not hard to imagine Brian Gutekunst adding pieces to make that easier.

It would never work. The run game still matters. You can’t play small and win the...

Allen Lazard remains “salty” about Packers’ NFC title-game loss to 49ers

Packers linebacker Za'Darius Smith admitted during Super Bowl week that he and other teammates weren’t ready to face the 49ers in the NFC Championship. Receiver Allen Lazard apparently was ready. And the loss has made him more than ready to get things rolling again. “I’m still kind of salty about it,” Lazard said in a [more]

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The LSU receiver broke out in 2019 due largely to his intelligence, but a big Combine workout could push him up draft boards.

As the 2020 NFL Combine approaches — the first batch of players begin arriving on Sunday — it’s time to take another look at a few key draft prospects for the Green Bay Packers. GM Brian Gutekunst is sure to take a long look at the wide receivers in this draft class, and today we profile one of the most productive players at...

Packers have 10 selections in 2020 draft

Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst met with local reporters Friday afternoon in advance of next week's trip to the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.  Gutekunst told the assembled ink-stained wretches that the team will receive a 6th round draft pick for the trade of Reggie Gilbert, bringing their total number of selections in April's draft to 10. (They are not projected to receive any compensatory picks this year after Gutekunst's extensive use of free agency last offseason.) Filed...

Packers should sign “Snacks”

The modern era National Football League is by no means your dad’s type of football. “Run the ball and stop the run”, is no longer an ethos football teams must live by. Nevertheless, the Green Bay Packers cannot fail to address their need for a run-stuffing defensive tackle this off-season. Kenny Clark cannot continue to do it all for the Packers defensive line. Clark, still just 24, is legitimately one of the very best players in the NFL. He has continually progressed with each year of...

Packers will wait on making decision about Jimmy Graham’s future

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports If the Packers do release Graham, they will not do so for another few weeks. The Green Bay Packers are in a less-than-favorable situation against the salary cap for 2020, holding around $23 million in expected cap space. Contract extensions for some big-name players await, including Kenny Clark and David Bakhtiari, while the team will also likely look to spend some money in free agency this summer. One of the most obvious options to free up more cap space would...

Jimmy Graham’s future with the Packers remains a question

Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst said a month ago it was his understanding Jimmy Graham wants to continue to play. If that’s the case, do the Packers still want the tight end to play for them? Graham is under contract with the Packers in 2020, scheduled to count $11.67 million against the salary cap in [more]

Brian Gutekunst sees Allen Lazard as a “valuable receiver”

The Packers initially considered moving Allen Lazard to tight end. It took only one season for Lazard to prove to the Packers he’s a pretty darn good receiver. Lazard, who entered last season with one career catch for 7 yards, made 35 receptions for 477 yards and three touchdowns in 2019. “”I think what he’s [more]
