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.

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.

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.

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.

Davis was a prodigious kickoff returner at Cal.

The Green Bay Packers have signed QB Joe Callahan to the active roster from the practice squad and released LB Carl Bradford. The transactions were announced Saturday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Callahan, a 6-foot-1, 216-pound rookie, was originally signed by Green Bay as an undrafted rookie out of Wesley College on May 6. After being released by the Packers on Oct. 13, he was claimed off waivers by the New Orleans Saints. Callahan was released by the Saints on Oct. 22 and claimed by the Cleveland Browns on Oct. 24, but was released on Nov. 29. He was signed to Green Bay’s practice squad on Dec. 2. In 2015, he became the first NCAA Division III quarterback to throw for 5,000 yards in a season, earning the Gagliardi Trophy, the highest award in Division III football.

On Sunday, that moment finally arrived at the Georgia Dome courtesy of rookie receiver Trevor Davis and the other 10 players on the Packers’ punt-return team.

Davis, a fifth-round pick out of California, broke free for a 55-yard return with 5 minutes, 46 seconds left in the first half to set up his own 9-yard touchdown catch three plays later.

That’s one of the attractions, definitely,” Wolf said. “A 4.3 guy, big hands, some production there in a good passing offense.Nike Packers #12 Aaron Rodgers Green Name & Number Pullover NFL Hoodie

“Anytime you can get a weapon in the fifth round, I think you have to do that.”

The Packers selected Davis (6-1, 188) with the 163rd overall pick. He spent the last two years catching passes from QB Jared Goff, who was drafted first overall by the Rams on Thursday night.

Davis had 64 receptions for 1,071 yards and seven TDs over the last two seasons after transferring from Hawaii. Wolf said it can make it easier to evaluate a receiver when he’s working with a bona fide pro prospect at QB.

Playing at Washington State in a game rapidly evolving into a shootout, Davis cranked up the contest’s pace even more in the third quarter. Just two minutes and 59 seconds apart, he brought back a pair of kickoffs for touchdowns.

The returns covered 100 and 98 yards, respectively. The speedy receiver became a blur, times two, pulling off in the length of a boxing round a single-game feat most returners never experience in their entire careers.

The rookie fifth-round draft pick from Cal caught just three passes for 24 yards, but that included a 9-yard TD on a diving catch right at the pylon for his first NFL score. That was just four plays after Davis himself put the Packers in position with a 55-yard punt return, Green Bay’s longest of the season.

The Packers are pretty banged up at the receiver position at the moment. Only two of the six on the active roster, Randall Cobb and Trevor Davis jersey, were full participants during Wednesday’s practice in the Hutson Center.

Davis was a prodigious kickoff returner at Cal. His 24.7 yards per return rank fifth in school history, including a pair for touchdowns against Washington State during the 2014 season.

Still, he only touched the ball on punt returns 14 times in two seasons with his longest going for 24 yards. He’s already surpassed that mark twice on his first six NFL returns.

“There’s natural returners and Trevor is working towards that,” Zook said. “I think he has a chance to be a pretty good returner, but the other guys have to do their job also. It takes everybody doing their job.”

Davis’ effort on Sunday catapulted the Packers to third in the NFL with 13.9 yards per punt return on seven attempts. Now, Zook says it’s up to the special-teams unit to build on that success and create more opportunities in the second half of the season.

Ty Montgomery’s injury has been restored

“It’s very important for Jordy Nelson to catch the football from Aaron Rodgers. That’s something that can’t get lost in his coming back,” McCarthy said. “Jordy’s human. Aaron throws the football differently than the other quarterbacks we have here. So it’s important for him to get that timing to see the football come out of his hand and get his head around when the ball’s in the air.”

While it’s unlikely the Packers’ Pro Bowl receiver will play in Thursday night’s preseason finale against Kansas City, Nelson told reporters Sunday that he’s expecting to participate in 11-on-11 team periods during practice this week.

It would be the first time Nelson has stepped on the field for full-speed work since he injured his left knee last August in Pittsburgh.

Their response was another 75-yard drive in five plays that began with Cook drawing a 30-yard defensive pass interference penalty.

With 20 seconds left in the half, Rodgers then threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Adams across the middle of the field despite a Jacksonville defender grabbing the quarterback’s jersey at the time he threw it.

On the other end, Adams fought off a defensive pass interference penalty by former Packers cornerback Davon House to propel the Packers ahead, 21-17 at halftime.

That’s what Nelson wants to get back to. He’s not there yet, calling September the “ultimate target date,” but at this point there’s no reason to think he won’t hit it.

“I’m excited to play,” he said. “I think I said when (the injury) happened it would be the first time in 18 years I hadn’t played football in the fall. I’m excited to get back out there. I told my wife I’m excited to be sore. It’s a good sore to have. We look forward to that, but again, it’s a long ways away.”

Nelson isn’t the only Packers receiver awaiting clearance. Ty Montgomery also sat out of Tuesday’s practice as he recovers from season-ending ankle surgery. Like Nelson, he’s happy with his rehab and anxious to get back on the field.

When exactly that will be for Nelson is yet to be determined, but he says he’ll be ready whenever that day finally arrives.

“We said OTAs was going to be up for debate and there’s a lot more higher-ups than me,” Nelson said. “Obviously, they’re being smart and they’re probably doing the Green Bay Packers jersey  right thing. But you always push the limit.”

As Brett Favre’s backup for two separate four-year stints in Green Bay, Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson surely has plenty of stories he could share with his new protégé, rookie quarterback Carson Wentz.

That’s not to say his game didn’t get some work, though. Another way he has learned from Rodgers is bringing intense competitiveness to his scout-team work. Rodgers’ famous “belt” celebration originated after successful plays while running the scout team behind Hall of Famer Brett Favre.Nike NFL Green Bay Packers Heart & Soul NFL T-Shirt Black

Hundley didn’t mention any practice antics of his own, but whether he was pretending to be Eli Manning, Dak Prescott or Matt Ryan, he played those snaps with as much gusto as Rodgers used to.

Synonymous with the Lambeau Leap, Butler’s popularity in Green Bay remains unmatched to this day, but he also knows he doesn’t have the transcendent appeal of Brett Favre and White. Playing in the NFL’s smallest market also can make it more difficult to gain traction on a national level.

Former teammate, Edgar Bennett, and Hall of Fame general manager Ron Wolf have spoken fervently over the years about Butler possessing the necessary credentials. Yet, his phone has been silent every November when the semifinalists are announced.

Clinton-Dix also earned his first Pro Bowl selection on Tuesday.

The Bears trailed the Packers by just eight points with about four minutes left and had driven inside the Green Bay 30-yard line when Matthews stepped in front of Chicago TE Martellus Bennett, picked off QB Jay Cutler’s pass and ran all the way into Chicago territory. The turnover set up the clinching TD drive that sealed a season-opening victory.

I know the average football fan eats up the free-agent frenzy and that’s why media outlets have to report on rumored free-agent movement and trades, but it gets to be so reckless at times. It was rumored the Packers would attempt to trade for Martellus Bennett. I can’t imagine a scenario in which either team would want to hand something over to a divisional opponent that would be beneficial. Do you really think there is a scenario in which there could be any validity to a rumor like that?

“I learned a lot from Tom last year about how to communicate better with the quarterback. I speak several different quarterback languages, and I just have to learn which one to speak to Aaron now.”

Kendricks, who joins the Packers after six seasons with the Rams, is already opening that line of communication. Over the last two years, he has trained in the offseason at the same Thousand Oaks, Calif., facility where Rodgers, Clay Matthews and David Bakhtiari work out as well.

“I hated playing against Aaron,” said Bennett with a laugh. “I just got off the phone with him, I said, ‘I hate that guy on the other side,’ but it’s going to be pretty good to be on Green Bay Packers jerseys the same side with him and catching passes. I’ve seen him make a lot of amazing throws and he’s been one of the best for a really long time. I’m just going to try to come in and contribute to the best of my ability.”

Bennett has played a few games inside Lambeau Field as an opposing player. He fondly remembers it for its unique atmosphere and good playing conditions.

As for what Bennett and Kendricks might be able to do on the field together as a dynamic pair of tight ends, Bennett said as long as both are effective as blockers and pass-catchers, defenses will have a decision to make whether to have more coverage defenders or run-stoppers on the field.

The talent always has been there for Clinton-Dix, but both he and Perry agree the young safety is acting more on his instincts this year. He’s also improved his tackling, reducing his missed tackles from double-digits as a rookie to significantly less the past two seasons.

Clinton-Dix was tossed into the leadership fire early last season when Burnett missed five games with a hamstring injury. It was a tough spot considering Burnett often serves as the lead communicator and quarterback of the secondary.Nike Packers #87 Jordy Nelson Green Team Color Men's Stitched NFL Limited Strobe Jersey

His absence forced Clinton-Dix to be more vocal in his declarations. He worked to develop chemistry with Burnett’s replacement, Micah Hyde, and the two helped stem the tide until the veteran safety’s return after the Week 6 bye.

Packers S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 15. The third-year safety intercepted two passes from Bears QB Matt Barkley on back-to-back series in the third quarter on Sunday in Chicago, both setting up touchdowns for Green Bay’s offense in the victory.

Contrast that with 2013, the year before Clinton-Dix’s arrival, when a hamstring injury kept Burnett sidelined for the first three games of the year. The Packers went 1-2 and gave up more than 30 points in each of the two losses. The defense lacked a reliable safety complement to Burnett, and without him, the dropoff was noticeable.

Clinton-Dix is now tied for the league lead among safeties with five interceptions. The Giants’ Landon Collins also has five. This is the first player of the week award for Clinton-Dix, a first-round draft pick out of Alabama in 2014.

The defensive end of the packer was tested after the regular season

Then last year, the Vikings intercepted Rodgers in the end zone with two minutes left to preserve their seven-point victory and end Green Bay’s four-year reign atop the division.

The Packers saw that first-hand when Stafford brought the Lions back from a 31-3 deficit to get within 34-27 in Week 3 at Lambeau Field.

Gentlemen, I’m a Packers fan from Michigan heading to Detroit on Sunday. My ticket has quadrupled its value since I bought it, but there is no way that I’m selling it. I will be with a group of friends, most of them Lions fans, but I fully expect Packer Nation to show up and show up big!

“We’d love to get Randall back this week to get everybody back, but we’ve seen a lot of different guys step up,” said Rodgers this week. “Almost a different guy every week with Jordy obviously this last week, Ty the week before, Davante had a big game, Jared (Cook) had a big game in there. There’s a number of different guys who have played big roles for us.”

The Lions have ruled out RB Theo Riddick (wrist) and listed C Travis Swanson (concussion) as doubtful. CB Darius Slay (hamstring), LB DeAndre Levy (knee), and WR Andre Roberts (shoulder) are all questionable for Detroit. QB Matthew Stafford (right finger) and S Miles Killebrew (eye) have been removed from the Lions’ injury report.

Defensively, the Packers have been tested since the regular-season opener in Jacksonville when Pro Bowl cornerback Sam Shields sustained a concussion that eventually landed him on injured reserve.

Cobb missed last week’s game vs. Minnesota and hasn’t practiced all week, with the hope he might be able to do some work on the practice field Saturday. Cobb originally hurt the ankle three weeks ago vs. Seattle, returned to finish the game and then tried to play the following week at Chicago but wasn’t a factor.

A mantra of this Mike McCarthy Packers team all season has been “pursuit and finish.” Green Bay has pursued this position, a chance for a division crown, with a five-game winning streak when any miscue might have doomed the season.

“It really shows the testament of their team,” linebacker Clay Matthews said. “But it’s moreso about finishing games than knowing what they’ve done in the past.

Insiders, many hamburger sandwiches are simple to eat with one hand due to their small overall size. Many hot dogs allow for one or two hands as well. Could it be that a hot dog becomes a sandwich when the thin connecting dough between the main bun halves becomes separated, therefore resulting in said hot dog and toppings being “sandwiched” between two separate pieces of bread? This would suggest a legitimate sandwich being an arrangement of ingredients rather than the type of ingredients themselves.

The NFL made a change this year, allowing a coach in the booth to be connected directly to the player wearing the helmet speaker on the field. The call from the booth used to have to be relayed to the player from the sideline, but not anymore. As for other coaches wearing headsets, I believe they can hear the call when it’s made.
