It was the best play of Mason Crosby’s career that didn’t involve his right foot

james jones jersey packers

The conversation no longer revolves around his size or humble credentials, but rather the 125 tackles and 18 sacks he’s registered in his first 62 regular-season games.

In a strong night of work by the Packers’ defensive front seven at Minnesota, no individual stood out more than defensive lineman Mike Daniels.

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. today announced that Mike Daniels will be honored with the Hall’s ‘Most Valuable Player’ award, presented by Miller Coors, and Damarious Randall will be honored with the ‘Rookie of the Year’ award, presented by Ariens, at the 46th Packers Hall of Fame Induction Banquet. Former players Chad Clifton and Nick Collins, and former broadcaster Russ Winnie will become the newest members of the Hall at the banquet, to be held the evening of July 23, 2016, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

“I think we can still get a little nastier,” Daniels said. “It’s been building up. It’s been growing every year. I think this is the year you could see it, the intensity out of the guys. Everybody’s looking forward to getting the pads back on as opposed to a handful of guys. That’s definitely a plus. I think the culture is great for the young guys who come in.”

With more experience in Dom Capers’ scheme than any other Packers’ lineman, Daniels understands his place in the defense and the responsibility he has to the younger players in the room, especially with B.J. Raji taking a hiatus.

It was the best play of Mason Crosby’s career that didn’t involve his right foot.

Crosby’s strip of Vikings kickoff returner Cordarrelle Patterson at the end of a 70-yard runback in the fourth quarter temporarily saved the game for the Packers. It gave the offense one more shot to tie things up, but Green Bay still lost, 20-13, on Sunday night at Lambeau Field.Free agency is only a week away, but Mason Crosby wasn’t tempted.  Nike Packers #87 Jordy Nelson Green Yellow Men's Ugly Sweater

The Packers’ veteran kicker said the goal was to get a new contract with Green Bay worked out before free agency, and he couldn’t be happier it was accomplished.

“What better place to be than in Green Bay where I’ve started building a legacy these nine years and I’ve established myself here,” Crosby told a group of reporters at his locker on Wednesday, shortly after signing his new four-year deal. “I couldn’t really imagine playing anywhere else.”

As soon as Dan Bailey’s 52-yard field goal sailed through the uprights, Mason Crosby glanced up at the scoreboard at AT&T Stadium to survey the situation.

“Just get it done,” Crosby said of his thoughts when he got a shot at a game-winner after his high-bouncing onside kick was recovered by the Packers with 31 seconds left. “Go out there and do my thing. I’ve been hitting the ball great this year. I felt really good on it. I’ve got to come through there.

The Green Bay Packers signed LS Brett Goode, claimed RB Jhurell Pressley off waivers from the Minnesota Vikings, placed CB Makinton Dorleant on injured reserve and released RB Brandon Burks. The transactions were announced Monday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Nike Packers #87 Jordy Nelson Green Team Color Men’s Stitched NFL Elite Autographed Jersey

The Green Bay Packers jersey cheap have released CB Makinton Dorleant. The transaction was announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Dorleant, who signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Northern Iowa in May 2016, played in four games as a rookie last season after being activated from injured reserve; designated for return on Dec. 3. He sustained an injury in Week 17 at Detroit and was placed on injured reserve on Jan. 5.

The Green Bay Packers activated CB Makinton Dorleant from reserve/injured; designated for return and placed CB Demetri Goodson on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Saturday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

Baxter, a 5-foot-11, 192-pound rookie out of Marshall, originally signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent on May 6, but was released on Aug. 1. He spent a few days on the Packers’ practice squad in October. In college, he appeared in 42 games, recording 66 tackles, 14 passes defensed, two interceptions, a sack and a fumble recovery. Baxter will wear No. 41 for the Packers.

The game was hurt and out of the game

LaDarius Gunter wanted to be on the field. It didn’t matter whether it came on defense or special teams. The second-year cornerback intended to play this season.

Every week, that little phrase was all LaDarius Gunter needed to psyche himself up for the next opponent and prepare for whatever challenge lay ahead.

Nerves meant nothing on game days. The only thing that matters to the Packers’ second-year cornerback is the receiver who lines up across from him.

On Sunday, that individual was New York Giants All-Pro receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Perhaps nobody in the Packers’ defense had a bigger job responsibility than Gunter during Sunday’s NFC Wild Card game and he responded in helping contain Beckham to only four catches for 28 yards in a 38-13 win for the Packers.

That much has been apparent to anyone who has known the Packers’ cornerback since the day he walked into Lambeau Field as an undrafted free agent in 2015.

Gunter doesn’t speak in hyperbole or use highfalutin language to get his point across. He simply works and lets his actions on the field tell the story.

The Green Bay Packers signed FB Joe Kerridge to the practice squad. The transaction was announced Monday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

The Green Bay Packers have signed FB Joe Kerridge to the active roster from the practice squad and released S Jermaine Whitehead. The transactions were announced Monday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Joe Kerridge was just about to sit down and play some video games when his phone rang last month with the opportunity of a lifetime.

It was the Green Bay Packers calling, offering the former Michigan fullback at shot at possibly joining their 10-player practice squad.

Kerridge, a 6-foot, 245-pound rookie out of the University of Michigan, originally signed with the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent on May 5. After being released by Washington on Sept. 3, he was briefly on the Redskins’ practice squad. Kerridge was signed to the Packers’ practice squad on Oct. 3. He will wear No. 40 for the Packers.

The Green Bay Packers jerseys signed G Lucas Patrick and released WR Devonte Robinson and G Cory Tucker. The transactions were announced Wednesday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

Bryan Bulaga exited early in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against Dallas with a back injury, but the Packers are encouraged that their starting right tackle could be available Thursday night against the Chicago Bears.

Bulaga was one of 11 players the Packers listed as non-participants on Monday’s injury report. Participation is based on estimation since Green Bay didn’t practice Monday.NFL Green Bay Packers #88 Ty Montgomery Snapback Adjustable Stitched Player Hat - Green White

Bryan Bulaga had taken nearly every snap positioned next to the same right guard for the past three years.

What began with a simple changeup on the offensive line in 2014 had seen Bulaga and T.J. Lang develop into one of the most reliable right-side pairings on any NFL offensive line.

That partnership was put on hold a few weeks ago when Lang sustained a foot injury during the opening drive in Tennessee, causing him to miss consecutive games for the first time since 2010.

Bulaga has continued to play at a high level despite the recent turnover. Although he won’t admit it, there have been plenty of players and coaches who have taken notice of Bulaga’s season, including Lang.

Watching Monday night’s 27-13 win over Philadelphia back in Green Bay, Lang made an observation on Twitter about Bulaga’s play that could apply to the starting right tackle’s entire season.

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed T/G Don Barclay

nfl jerseys green bay packers

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed T/G Don Barclay. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signing Friday.

Barclay, who originally signed with Green Bay as an undrafted free agent out of West Virginia University in 2012, played in 62 games with 24 starts during his first five seasons with the Packers. He appeared in all 32 contests with six starts over the past two seasons, opening games at both tackle positions and at right guard. Barclay has seen action at all five positions on the offensive line during his career.

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed T/G Don Barclay and signed LB Lerentee (luh-REN-tay) McCray. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signings Monday. Packers #90 B.J. Raji Green Super Bowl XLV Stitched NFL Jersey

Barclay played in all 16 games last season, starting four contests at right tackle (Weeks 2-4, 13) and one at left tackle (Week 16), and appeared in both postseason games. He originally signed with the packers as an undrafted free agent out of West Virginia University on May 7, 2012. Barclay has played in 46 career games, with 23 starts, in his four years with Green Bay while also starting three of five postseason contests.

Don Barclay might have proved on Friday night why his position coach spoke with such ease. In his first in-game appearance at center, Barclay held his own in taking 73 snaps at the position in the Packers’ 17-11 win over the Browns.

Tretter was healthy enough to start but exited with the rest of the Packers’ starting offensive line following Green Bay’s first offensive series.

That left Barclay to handle the center duties for the remainder of the game despite only playing the position occasionally in practice over the past few seasons.

The Green Bay Packers activated CB Makinton Dorleant from reserve/injured; designated for return and placed CB Demetri Goodson on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Saturday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

Demetri Goodson of the Green Bay Packers has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the 2016 regular season for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances.

“I have a good relationship with Datone; I have a good Green Bay Packers jersey cheap  relationship with Brett,” Clark said. “I’m excited to be there. I’m excited to get started and start working out with the team.

“I’m going to bring the best Kenny Clark to the Packers that I can. I’m going to work hard and I’m going to do my job for the Packers.”

The Green Bay Packers have signed DT Kenny Clark. The signing was announced Friday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

In Tuesday’s first practice of training camp, Daniels could be seen – and certainly heard – getting on Clark for messing up in an 11-on-11 period. There was no first-day grace period for the first-round draft pick from UCLA.

Discussing it after practice on Wednesday, Clark sounded like a player who wouldn’t have it any other way. He not only wants to earn the veterans’ respect, but he understands how important it is that he be all systems go when the first regular-season game rolls around.

Geronimo Allison proved a quick study in that regard

charles woodson jersey packers

The Green Bay Packers have signed LB Jordan Tripp. The transaction was announced Wednesday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

House returns to Green Bay after playing the last two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars. In 2015, he set career highs with 60 tackles, four interceptions and 23 passes defensed. House was originally selected in the fourth round (131st overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Packers out of New Mexico State. He has played in 72 career games with 33 starts, registering 150 tackles (122 solo), six interceptions, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and 60 passes defensed.2017-04-26_110149

The last minutes of the game were complete chaos. I went from shooting images of Jordan Tripp and Kenny Clark as they kneeled along the lines (photo shown in the gallery) as they anxiously waited for the game-winning kick to pure jubilation after Crosby made the field goal. It was insane. All I remember was running around trying to get those priceless celebratory moments. But the best moment came inside the Packers’ locker room. Jared Cook had the biggest smile on his face. He simply stood there grinning from ear to ear as teammates and coaches embraced him. I captured a nice moment of Aaron Rodgers as he embraced Cook. That smile said it all.

On Sunday night, undrafted rookie receiver Geronimo Allison and second-year fullback Aaron Ripkowski were those guys for Green Bay.

Allison and Ripkowski weren’t the names on the tip of everyone’s tongue going into the Packers’ NFC North showdown with Detroit, but their performances played a critical role in Green Bay pulling out the 31-24 victory at Ford Field and clinching their fifth division title in six seasons.

Nike Packers #52 Clay Matthews White Stitched NFL Jersey

The Green Bay Packers have signed CB Davon House and re-signed LB Jordan Tripp. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the transactions Wednesday.

Geronimo Allison was disappointed but undeterred when  he found out his fate during the Packers’ final round of roster cuts at the end of training camp.

The undrafted rookie receiver out of Illinois hoped a strong preseason in Green Bay Packers jersey authentic which he led the offense with six catches for 119 yards would catapult him onto the 53-man roster.

Davis is a speedster Head Coach Mike McCarthy declared “ready” late last season, though his playing time was sporadic. The 2016 fifth-round pick could play a big role in the return game in his second year while getting more acclimated to Aaron Rodgers and the offense.

Nike Packers #97 Kenny Clark White Men’s Stitched NFL Limited Rush Jersey

Geronimo Allison proved a quick study in that regard, stepping in late last season for an injured Cobb and delivering as an undrafted rookie. Allison had eight receptions for 157 yards and a TD in the final two regular-season games before adding three catches – all picking up first downs – for 46 yards in the divisional playoff win at Dallas.

The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Geronimo Allison and S Jermaine Whitehead to the active roster from the practice squad, signed WR Dez Stewart to the practice squad, and placed WR Jared Abbrederis and S Chris Banjo on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Monday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Instead, the offense may turn to undrafted rookie Don Jackson, who was promoted from the practice squad on Thursday after Lacy was placed on injured reserve.

The Green Bay Packers claimed RB Christine Michael off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks and placed RB Don Jackson on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

To prove that he can become the Green Bay Packers third line line guard

packers salute to service

Jake Ryan is used to reacting quickly. His job requires it. But a prom proposal is not something he has prepared for recently. So when Victoria Donbeck, a junior at Wittenberg-Birnamwood high school, asked him to the April 22 dance, he was caught off guard momentarily.

Then, with the score 17-0, linebacker Jake Ryan had a chance to recover a botched direct snap to motioning receiver Taylor Gabriel. But he couldn’t corral the ball, and the Falcons avoided the miscue.

Instead of getting the ball in Atlanta territory with a chance to get back in the game, the Packers eventually trailed 24-0 at halftime.

The group answered questions in the break room at Ironwood Plastics and everyone present learned that Michigan alum and Packers linebacker Jake Ryan was making his first visit to the Upper Peninsula.

In addition to Murphy, Packers all-time leading rusher Ahman Green, former kicker Ryan Longwell, former receiver Robert Ferguson, and current Packers fullback Aaron Ripkowski, linebacker Jake Ryan, and quarterback Brett Hundley are all participating on this year’s tour.

The Green Bay Packers signed TE Beau Sandland to the practice squad and released RB Brandon Burks from the practice squad. The transactions were announced Friday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

While Packers linebacker Joe Thomas Jr. was en route to Green Bay Packers jerseys Washington, D.C., on Saturday, his father was making history at South Carolina State.

At 55 years old, Joe Thomas Sr. is believed to be the oldest player to ever participate in an NCAA Division I football game after gaining three yards on a carry during the first quarter of the Bulldogs’ 32-0 win over Savannah State on Saturday.

All offseason, Joe Thomas was driven to prove he could be a three-down linebacker for the Green Bay Packers.

Nike Packers #36 Nick Collins Green Stitched NFL Jersey

The former undrafted free agent out of South Carolina State earned a role in the Packers’ defense a year ago, handling the inside linebacker responsibilities in the dime package.

Thomas was grateful, but not satisfied. He trained with the goal of putting 10 pounds onto his frame to better equip himself for playing the run in first- and second-down situations.Nike Packers #36 Nick Collins Green Stitched NFL Jersey

After it initially appeared the rookie Martinez would assume an every-down responsibility, Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers deployed a familiar face at the core of his third-down defense with Thomas reprising his role as the dime linebacker.

The Packers’ defense opened the game with a three-and-out, as LB Joe Thomas had WR Golden Tate tightly covered on third-and-4 on the first series.

That’s where he played most of his 335 snaps last season, registering 26 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble in 14 regular-season games. He also developed into a core special-teams player, tying for fourth on team with nine coverage tackles.

While the former undrafted free agent was thankful for the opportunity, Thomas didn’t want the takeaway from his first NFL season to be that he only could play in passing situations on third down.

Christine Michael is doing a really good job

reggie white green bay packers jersey

It’s been a little more than a week since Christine Michael arrived in Green Bay, but the fourth-year running back already feels ready to contribute.

Michael told reporters on Wednesday that he’s “been in my playbook like crazy” since the Packers claimed him off waivers last week, developing enough comfort in the scheme to potentially play in Monday night’s game in Philadelphia.

Asked what Michael might be able to do against the Eagles, Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy said during his Friday morning news conference that the newly acquired running back’s preparation could put him in position to contribute Monday.

While all his new teammates were fast asleep, Christine Michael was busy boarding a red-eye flight out of Seattle on Wednesday night.

“Christine Michael is doing a really good job,” said McCarthy. “I really liked the way he practiced on Wednesday. He’ll get more today. It would be nice to have him part of our rotation come Monday night. We just have to continue to work the plan. This is our workload day today. He’s fit in really nice. So I’m glad he’s here; that’s for sure.”

The Packers saw enough in Christine Michael’s late-season audition to take another look at the fifth-year running back.

Nike Packers #92 Reggie White White Men’s Stitched NFL Elite Jersey

The 26-year-old running back officially re-signed with the team Thursday after rushing for 114 yards and a touchdown in six regular-season appearances last season.

The Green Bay Packers claimed RB Christine Michael off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks and placed RB Don Jackson on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed LB Nick Perry. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signing Thursday.

“There’s always been flashes,” said Perry. “There’s always been times where I was able to do what I wanted to do.”

As soon as it looked like the Packers linebacker’s luck had changed, however, a setback quickly followed. For every hurdle Perry jumped over, another was immediately put in front of him.

That finally changed in 2016 when the former first-round pick enjoyed the first full offseason program of his career. Injury-free, Perry was positioned to make a lasting impact.

Green Bay Packers players Julius Peppers and Nick Perry will be supporting the Salvation Army on Monday, Dec. 5, at 6 p.m. in the Lambeau Field Atrium, by signing autographs for fans in exchange for monetary donations.

The Packers always have known what Nick Perry is capable of when healthy. As the Packers linebacker saw the double-team form in front of him during the waning moments of Sunday’s game against Dallas, Perry’s instincts were to follow Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott through his progressions to perfectly time the throw.

Nobody on the Packers’ sideline wanted to see Jared Cook exit in the second quarter of an eventual 34-27 win over Detroit two weeks ago. Green Bay Packers jerseys

At the same time, no one in the offensive huddle blinked when Richard Rodgers jogged onto the field to replace the eighth-year veteran tight end.

In the aftermath of last season, Richard Rodgers had a goal for 2016.

Going into his third NFL season, the Packers’ tight end was looking to trim down to around 257 pounds, his NFL Scouting Combine weight from two years ago.

Perry, who was selected by Green Bay in the first round (No. 28 overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of the University of Southern California, has played in 60 games with 28 starts during his five seasons with the Packers and has recorded 190 tackles (127 solo), 23.5 sacks, one interception, eight passes defensed, five forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

Blake Martinez’s life on one of the biggest stages in college football

green bay packers sweatshirts cheap

This is Blake Martinez in a nutshell. He doesn’t drink – not even soda – do drugs and rarely helps himself to dessert. Since early in high school, the 6-foot-2, 240-pound linebacker has been incredibly health-conscious and goal-driven.

His transformation began when he was a freshman in high school. Martinez, like most kids, was fond of PB&Js, so when the football coaches told him to eat up every night, the young defensive lineman happily obliged the request.

Blake Martinez didn’t want to be a pest, but the opportunity in front of him was too good to pass up.

As soon as the Packers’ rookie linebacker discovered his locker was only one spot over from Aaron Rodgers’, Martinez vowed to capitalize on the arrangement.

Blake Martinez was nervous his chance at nabbing his first career interception had escaped him on Thursday night against Chicago.

The Packers’ rookie linebacker, trailing Bears receiver Cameron Meredith up the seam, turned his head in time to have a Matt Barkley pass ricochet off his hands with a little more than 5 minutes remaining in the eventual 26-10 victory over the Bears.

“Since I’ve gotten here, I know injuries and things have allowed me to kind of step in here,” Martinez said. “It’s obviously tough to step in because of those reasons, but I’ve tried to take advantage of it.”

Nike Packers #52 Clay Matthews Navy Blue Stitched NFL Jersey

There were no communication helmets at Stanford. Every call Martinez relayed as a four-year starter was signaled in from the sideline.

It was one of the greatest moments of Blake Martinez’s life on one of the biggest stages in college football.

The future Packers linebacker had nine tackles and Green Bay Packers jersey cheap a half sack in Stanford’s dominating 45-16 win over Iowa, handing the Cardinal its second Rose Bowl championship in four years.

The Green Bay Packers signed LB Derrick Mathews. The transaction was announced Tuesday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

The Green Bay Packers signed LB Derrick Mathews to the practice squad. The transaction was announced Wednesday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

Mathews (6 feet, 232 pounds), a first-year player out of the  University of Houston, was originally signed to the Washington Redskins’ practice squad on Nov. 23, 2015. He was released by  Washington on Jan. 5, 2016, before being re-signed by the Redskins on Jan. 14 and then released on May 2. Mathews spent part of the 2016 training camp with Green Bay. He finished his collegiate career ranked fifth in UH history with 400 career tackles. Mathews will wear No. 49 for the Packers.

That’s why the Packers have activated six at the same position, at least one more than normal for the 46-man gameday roster. Randall Cobb, Jeff Janis and rookie Trevor Davis are also available.

For Nelson, if he catches three passes, he will take over the top spot all-time in franchise postseason history. Nelson has 48 receptions in the postseason in his career, one behind Donald Driver and two behind Greg Jennings.

The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Max McCaffrey to the practice squad. The transaction was announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

First and foremost, his older brother Max is a receiver on Green Bay’s current roster. A rookie last season out of Duke, Max McCaffrey joined the Packers’ practice squad in December and was elevated to the 53-man roster the day before the NFC title game in Atlanta due to Green Bay’s injuries at wide receiver, though he was a gameday inactive.

While Max went undrafted a year ago and originally signed with the Raiders as a rookie free agent, Christian is considered among the top four running backs in the 2017 draft class and could go in the first round.

Janis undergoes surgery to repair the right hand bone

The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Antwan Goodley to the practice squad and placed TE Devon Cajuste on the practice squad; injured list. The transactions were announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Goodley, a 5-foot-10, 212-pound first-year player, originally signed with the Dallas Cowboys on May 8, 2015, as an undrafted free agent. After being released by Dallas on Sept. 1, he spent parts of  December and January on the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad last season. He was released by Seattle on Sept. 3, 2016, but did spend a couple weeks on its practice squad in September. He will wear No. 19 for the Packers.

Developmental prospects Max McCaffrey (older brother of highly touted Stanford running back Christian) and Antwan Goodley will be competing for roster spots, but they won’t be the only ones.

The Packers routinely bring 10 or more receivers to training camp, so a draft pick and/or rookie free agents will soon be on their way to Green Bay as well.

For Packers wide receiver Jeff Janis, a break means a chance to focus on a different game.

Nike Packers #85 Greg Jennings Black Shadow Stitched NFL Jersey

The first time Jeff Janis broke his finger in high school, the future Packers receiver simply threw a club on his hand and switched to running back.

For the first time in six weeks, the Packers’ third-year receiver was cleared to catch passes on Monday without any kind of protection.

Janis underwent surgery to repair a broken bone in Green Bay Packers jersey authentic his right hand near the start of training camp, which caused him to miss all four of the Packers’ preseason games.

Although the injury has relegated Janis to the sideline on offense during the regular season, he has played 38 special-teams snaps with a protective club on his right hand in the Packers’ first three games.

Janis expects his veteran quarterback to view film of the Packers’ three-day minicamp – from which 15 select veterans, including Rodgers, were excused – and have feedback for him sometime between now and the start of training camp.

Rollins is still working to get cleared in the concussion protocol. He practiced on a limited basis both Wednesday and Thursday after sitting out all of last week following his injury in Detroit in Week 17.

Janis had a big game on special teams last week vs. the Giants in the wild-card round but took a shot to the thigh on a kickoff return and was limited in practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday.

The Green Bay Packers have signed TE Lance Kendricks. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signing Saturday.Packers #52 Clay Matthews Camouflage Realtree Super Bowl XLV Stitched NFL Jersey

Kendricks was originally selected by the St. Louis Rams in the second round (47th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft out of the University of Wisconsin. He played in 93 games with 79 starts for the Rams in six seasons, including starting all 16 games in 2016. Last season Kendricks set a career high with 50 receptions for 499 yards (10.0 avg.) and two touchdowns. The Milwaukee native has totaled 204 receptions for 2,132 yards (10.5 avg.) and 17 touchdowns in his career.

The Milwaukee native and Rufus King High School graduate signed with the Packers Saturday, bringing the University of Wisconsin alumnus back to his home state after spending his first six NFL seasons with the Rams.

The 6-foot-3, 250-pound tight end was raised a Packers fan, constantly glued to the TV screen on Sundays. When he was a teenager, he even competed in a Punt, Pass & Kick competition at the Don Hutson Center.

The Packers are set to return 2016 third-round pick Kyler Fackrell

As the preseason drew to a close, Kyler Fackrell felt something click.

green bay packers james jones jersey

The Packers’ outside linebacker fought the same battle all rookies face coming into the NFL – finding that right balance between thinking about your assignment and playing with reaction.

It took all summer for Fackrell to cultivate that confidence, but everything came into focus during the Packers’ preseason finale against Kansas City when the rookie third-round pick recorded 10 tackles (six for a loss) and a sack against the Chiefs.

Kyler Fackrell and his father, Darrell, laughed it off as a joke, but Kelley Moore couldn’t have been more serious.

Moore, the Mesa (Ariz.) High School football coach, was upfront and honest with the Fackrells about his belief that Kyler, a senior at the time, would one day play outside linebacker in the NFL.

“If I had been going through the whole process of training and Green Bay Packers jersey china  preparing for the combine and everything, I really wouldn’t have been able to have very much time with her since she was first born,” said Fackrell moments after the Packers selected him with the 88th overall pick.

On Sunday, Adams provided a significant lift for the offense in the second quarter en route to finishing with six catches for a career-high 156 yards against Tennessee.

As they head into their second preseason game, Packers draft picks Jason Spriggs and Kyler Fackrell have both viewed their NFL debuts with a very critical eye.

Spriggs was solid and steady in his stint as the No. 2 left tackle last Friday vs. Cleveland, but he didn’t go into the film room to soak up all the praise for what he did right.

That was the case when he caught 233 passes from current Raiders quarterback Derek Carr in two seasons at Fresno State, and it hasn’t changed since Adams was selected by the Packers in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Nike Packers #52 Clay Matthews Black Shadow Stitched NFL Jersey

Coming off a career night against Chicago in which Adams caught 13 passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns, the Packers’ coaching staff approached the third-year receiver with a proposition entering last Sunday’s game in Atlanta.

Aside from Matthews and Perry, the Packers are set to return 2016 third-round pick Kyler Fackrell and undrafted free agent Reggie Gilbert, who spent all of his rookie season on the Packers’ practice squad.

The Packers are expecting big things out of Fackrell. In his rookie season, the former Utah State linebacker had 18 tackles and two sacks, both of which came prior to a hamstring injury that sidelined him for three games.

Whatever shape the linebacker room takes, Perry hopes to use the experience he’s gained over the last five years to help bring along the next generation of Packers pass-rushers.

Pressley (ju-RELL), 5-foot-10, 206 pounds, originally signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of the University of New Mexico on May 2, 2016, but was waived on Sept. 3. In 2015, he led the Lobos with 907 rushing yards and 11 rushing touchdowns. As a junior, he rushed for 1,083 yards and 12 touchdowns on 114 carries, leading the nation with a 9.5 yards-per-carry average. Pressley will wear No. 26 for the Packers.

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed LB Jayrone Elliott

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed LB Jayrone Elliott. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signing Tuesday.

Elliott originally signed with the Packers as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Toledo in 2014. He has played in 38 regular-season games with Green Bay over the last three seasons, recording 33 tackles (27 solo), four sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, two passes defensed and 39 special teams tackles. In 2016, Elliott led the team with 13 tackles on special teams. He is the only Packer player to post a double-digit tackle total on special teams in each of the last three seasons.Green Bay Packers Nike KO Speed Wordmark Performance Hoodie Green

“I had never heard of water polo or even seen it until I got there,” Packers outside linebacker Jayrone Elliott said.

In all seriousness, though, Elliott’s three-week externship earlier this offseason in the Arizona State athletic department was an eye-opener to the business side of sports.

Elliott is getting back to his usual business now, just a week away from the start of the Packers’ offseason workouts on April 18. The third-year pass rusher and special-teamer has been working out in Green Bay and cheap green bay packers jersey sat down with packers.com on Monday to talk about his eventful offseason and his upcoming year.

Sitting in a special-teams meeting recently, the Packers’ third-year linebacker’s ears perked up when coordinator Ron Zook began naming veterans whom rookies and college free agents should aspire to emulate.

It surprised Elliott to hear his own name on Zook’s list. Not that praise was unfounded. After all, Elliott’s 26 coverage tackles lead the Packers’ special teams over the past two seasons. It’s just what the comment represents – he’s a veteran now.

While Elliott is still tugging on the defensive coattails of Julius Peppers and Clay Matthews in outside linebacker meetings, young players now look up to him on special teams.

That’s one lesson Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley is taking from his second NFL season.

It didn’t go as planned, beginning with an ankle injury that sidelined him for all but a couple dozen snaps in the preseason. The regular season wasn’t going to serve as Hundley’s playground unless disaster struck with Aaron Rodgers, but those preseason games were supposed to be his building blocks coming off a promising rookie year.

For a quarterback who plans on starting someday, somewhere in the NFL, though, Hundley still absorbed a lot through the 2016 season as he settled into his backup and scout-team role.

Specifically, he observed what a quarterback’s leadership meant for a team that went through some tough times.

“It’s been a blessing for me just to learn this year, learn from Aaron, understand the ups and downs,” Hundley said last week as he cleaned out his locker. “From 4-6 to the NFC Championship, that’s stuff sometimes if you don’t see it, when it happens you don’t know how to respond, and seeing all that stuff this year gives you calm, so when you’re in those situations, you’re not stressing or worried.
