Why the Packers shouldn’t sign Will Fuller in free agency

After being linked to Will Fuller before last season’s trade deadline, the Green Bay Packers have come up again as a potential landing spot for the soon-to-be free agent wide receiver. When discussing the Packers’ free agency strategy, ESPN’s Rob Demovsky said that “one guy to keep an eye on is Will Fuller”.

Thursday Cheese Curds: Tag! You’re it, Aaron Jones?

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Packers GM Brian Gutekunst did not rule out putting a tag on the star running back as he prepares to hit free agency With the new league year and free agency less than two weeks away, a word of advice to Packers fans from the mind of Samuel L. Jackson. “Hold on to your butts.” The Packers are going to have to make several moves to get under the salary cap by the time the 2021 league year starts on March 17. Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst confirmed more moves will be coming to get the Packers below the approximate $180 million cap...

The case against keeping Preston Smith in 2021

The case against keeping Preston Smith in 2021

Photo by Dylan Buell/ A formerly solid player had a terrible 2020, and yet he may remain on the team in 2021? During his media availability yesterday, Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst mentioned that the team was interested in keeping Preston Smith around. Whether this is actually true or not is unknown, but it certainly threw Packers Twitter into quite the tizzy. After starting out as largely a mocking exercise, by the end of the night I found many defending the idea of retaining Smith, which I found quite perplexing. Twelve hours earlier it was widely...

Packers 2021 free agency predictions: Who stays, who goes?

The most interesting few weeks of the NFL offseason are here. The new league year begins on March 17, leaving the Green Bay Packers with some big decisions to make. The impact of the pandemic will also further complicate things for every team, especially the ones trying to get under the salary cap, like the […] Packers 2021 free agency predictions: Who stays, who goes? - Lombardi Ave - Lombardi Ave - Green Bay Packers News and Fan Community

When to expect Packers’ and NFL’s big offseason news in 2021

When to expect Packers’ and NFL’s big offseason news in 2021

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Let’s look back at past years to see when the Packers are likely to find out about and make big offseason news. March 17th is the big deadline. The 2021 NFL league year begins at 4:00 PM Eastern Time on that date, which is when free agents can begin officially signing contracts and when teams must be under the salary cap (when totaling their top 51 players). However, the Green Bay Packers and the NFL as a whole will be making plenty of news in the 14 days between now and then. With free agent tenders to assign, contracts to restructure, and...

Wednesday Cheese Curds: First look at Packers’ new coordinators shows different personalities

Photo by Chris Williams/Icon Sportswire via Joe Barry and Maurice Drayton seem like they couldn’t have more different personalities, at least based on their initial press conferences. The Green Bay Packers introduced two new coordinators to fans and the media on Tuesday, as new DC Joe Barry and STC Maurice Drayton both took their first press conferences via Zoom. The team also made head coach Matt LaFleur, OC Nathaniel Hackett, and general manager Brian Gutekunst available and all were notable, but perhaps the biggest takeaway for this writer was the drastic...

Packers: Teven Jenkins in first round of 2021 mock draft

If Corey Linsley signs elsewhere in free agency, the Green Bay Packers could be forced to reshuffle their offensive line. While we can’t rule out the possibility of the Packers signing or drafting a center to replace Linsley, this seems less likely than rolling with a player already on the roster such as Pro Bowler […] Packers: Teven Jenkins in first round of 2021 mock draft - Lombardi Ave - Lombardi Ave - Green Bay Packers News and Fan Community

Packers open to using franchise tag on Aaron Jones

The Green Bay Packers want to keep Aaron Jones. There’s no doubt about that. Finding a way to afford re-signing him is another question entirely, especially with a reduced salary cap having a major impact this offseason. Jones is set to hit free agency as one of the best running backs in the NFL. And […] Packers open to using franchise tag on Aaron Jones - Lombardi Ave - Lombardi Ave - Green Bay Packers News and Fan Community

Brian Gutekunst: Packers are flexible enough to add ‘right player’ or use Franchise Tag

Photo by Zach Bolinger/Icon Sportswire via Preston Smith also came up in discussions on Tuesday, as the GM appears prepared to bring back the veteran pass-rusher. “Leave no stone unturned.” That was how Brian Gutekunst said he would approach building the Green Bay Packers’ roster when introduced as the team’s general manager a little more than three years ago. This year, that mantra may be even more apt than ever before as the Packers face a difficult offseason from a financial perspective. With the team as much as $12 million over the salary cap (depending on...

Packers: Brian Gutekunst commits to Preston Smith in 2021

Coming off a four-sack season and a $16 million cap hit in 2021, the Green Bay Packers are surely going to move on from edge rusher Preston Smith this month. Right? Well, maybe not. Not if Brian Gutekunst’s comments during his press conference today are anything to go by.

Should the Packers add a veteran cornerback in free agency?

The Green Bay Packers enter the 2021 offseason with very little room to make free agent signings, and they have one glaring need at cornerback. With Kevin King almost certainly playing elsewhere next season, and Josh Jackson showing no signs of being the answer, the Packers will have to find someone to play across the […] Should the Packers add a veteran cornerback in free agency? - Lombardi Ave - Lombardi Ave - Green Bay Packers News and Fan Community

From the moment that he appeared on screen during a live-streamed press conference, there was no mistaking new Green Bay Packers special teams coordinator Maurice Drayton’s approach to his job. A former special teams player himself, Drayton presented a confident, no-nonsense demeanor that he backed up with his comments. A former special teams player himself at The Citadel,...

Joe Barry pledges effort and intensity for Packers defense

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports The new Packers’ defensive coordinator spoke to the media for the first time on Tuesday. In his first remarks as the Packers defensive coordinator, Joe Barry didn’t dive deep on his scheme. He didn’t give an in-depth explanation of his philosophy. He didn’t list his bona fides. What he did say, though, came through loud and clear. “I promise you the guys will tackle,” he said. “I promise you guys will get off blocks. I promise you we’ll do whatever we can to take the ball away and get it back to number 12.” Barry earned...

That much is clear from the head coach’s first remarks after hiring Barry to helm the Packers defense. Speaking to reporters via Zoom on Tuesday, LaFleur said Barry checked all his boxes in what he described as a grueling search process. “A high character person, then someone who’s a great communicator, knowledgeable, and then the scheme portion.” LaFleur also...
