  Packers | Davante Adams to report on time    Sat Jun 12, 06:30 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams said he plans to report to training camp on time even if he does not receive a contract extension before the start of camp.

Footballguys view: Adams second round ADP reflects the uncertainty around the Packers offense. He's worth a pick in the first round as the first wide receiver off of the board if Aaron Rodgers is the Packers quarterback, but he's probably not even worth the second round pick you have to spend on him right now if Rodgers doesn't play for the Packers this year.

  Packers | Jace Sternberger suspended    Thu Jun 10, 04:17 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Jace Sternberger has been suspended for the first two games of the 2021 season for violating the NFL's policy on substance abuse.

Footballguys view: Sternberger is an athletic backup behind Robert Tonyan. A third-round pick in the 2019 NFL draft, Sternberger has yet to play up to his potential in the pros. This suspension is yet another setback for Sternberger who may have to go to a different team in a couple of years for a fresh start.

  Packers | Jake Dolegala joining Packers    Thu Jun 10, 03:16 PM

Free-agent QB Jake Dolegala (Patriots) agreed to terms with the Green Bay Packers Thursday, June 10. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Dolegala is a huge (6-feet, 7-inches) developmental quarterback who has bounced around the league a bit. Undrafted out of Central Connecticut State in 2019, Dolegala is likely just a camp arm for the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers.

  Packers | Jordan Love ready if needed    Wed Jun 9, 08:43 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love said Wednesday, June 9, he'll be ready to start the team's 2021 regular-season opener Sept. 12, in the event QB Aaron Rodgers doesn't return. 'A hundred percent,' Love said. 'Obviously, this is a time where I'm getting a lot of extremely valuable reps that I might not have been getting in a normal circumstance. So I'm just going to take it day by day. ... But yeah, that's what I'm here for. I was drafted here to play quarterback, so I'll definitely be ready Week 1.'

Footballguys view: Love has the confidence that he's ready, but his play on the field shows he's got a lot of work to do. As Aaron Rodgers continues his holdout, Love gets first-team reps and is trying to prove to the coaching staff he can be the starter in 2021. We'll all be watching Love closely during training camp and the preseason.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers absent    Tue Jun 8, 11:08 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wasn't present at the first day of mandatory minicamp Tuesday, June 8. He's officially holding out.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Rodgers is staying away because he doesn't want to play for the Packers anymore. The team is trying to do what they can to keep him, and they'll be putting together another new contract offer for the superstar quarterback to try and convince him to stay. Rodgers is a man of his convictions, so this isn't likely to be solved with a paycheck - no matter how large that sum is. This holdout could go into training camp...and maybe beyond that, unless the Packers break down and decide to trade him.

  Packers | Jordan Love checking it down    Tue Jun 8, 09:06 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love has favored check-down passes in practices open to the media thus far. With his receivers in attendance this week, though, he could open it up downfield.

Footballguys view: We'll see if Love opens up now that his top receivers are at practice. It's not a surprise that he's being safe with the ball so far in practice. This doesn't mean he's stuck as a check-down quarterback but it's an indication that he doesn't want to mess up. When he gets more comfortable we'll see if he gets more bold.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers may not be fined    Mon Jun 7, 05:52 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers can be fined up to $93,085 if he decides to skip the mandatory minicamp this week, but the Packers have considered issuing him an excused absence and not fine him.

Footballguys view: The Packers could have beat Rodgers to the punch to try and save face in this situation. Instead, reports have already come out about Rodgers skipping mandatory minicamp. They might just give him an excused absence anyway to try and patch things up.

  Packers | Davante Adams expected at minicamp    Mon Jun 7, 02:05 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams is expected to participate in the mandatory minicamp this week, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: Adams, and several other wide receivers for the Packers, skipped voluntary workouts as most speculate they did that as a show of solidarity for their quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Even though Rodgers is unlikely to show up for mandatory work as he wants to be traded, the wide receivers will be back in the building. There's a chance we see a Jordan Love-led Packers offense this season.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers unlikely to report    Mon Jun 7, 11:52 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is unlikely to report to mandatory minicamp this week, but the rest of the team is expected to attend.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Rodgers has dug his heels in, and the Packers insist they're not going to trade him. With him expected to miss mandatory minicamp, Rodgers will get fined $93,000 for his absence. Expect this to go into training camp as well unless and until the Packers realize they have to trade him.

  Packers | AJ Dillon poised for success?    Thu Jun 3, 10:44 PM

Green Bay Packers RB AJ Dillon believes he is ready for a larger role in the offense in his second season. 'You can see he's a lot more comfortable,' RB Aaron Jones said. 'He has the playbook down, and he's just ready to go out there and fly around. I'm excited to suit up with him.'

Footballguys view: Dillon may steal some goal line looks and early down carries from Aaron Jones, but Jones will take up all of the vacated passing down snaps from Jamaal Williams' departure, which will probably result in a net increase in Jones value. Dillon is more of an injury upside play than a standalone value for now.

  Packers | More expected from Robert Tonyan in 2021?    Wed Jun 2, 02:44 PM

Green Bay Packers TE Robert Tonyan is expected to be featured more often in the offense this season, according to recent comments made by head coach Matt LaFleur.

Footballguys view: Tonyan was targeted 59 times last year, catching 52 passes for 586 yards and a whopping 11 touchdowns. He finished as the no.3 fantasy tight end last year in standard formats, and with more work or a larger role he could finish this season around that same spot. The 11 touchdowns will be difficult to duplicate, and that was a big part of his fantasy value. However, his role in the offense and trust built with QB Aaron Rodgers is worth trusting as a TE1 for your fantasy team.

  Packers | Robert Tonyan terms    Wed Jun 2, 11:06 AM

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent TE Robert Tonyan signed a one-year tender that was worth $3.384 million. Most of that was treated as a signing bonus, and they tacked on four voidable years to save close to $1.9 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: The Packers are clearing up cap space so they can get Aaron Rodgers a new contract. The team wants to keep Rodgers and has no intention of trading him. Tonyan is one of his favorite targets and the Packers got creative with this deal to further create cap space so they can offer Rodgers a "significant" long-term offer.

  Packers | GM Will Not Trade QB Aaron Rodgers    Mon May 31, 03:51 PM

Matt Schneidman, from The Athletic, reports Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst "will not" trade Aaron Rodgers this summer. An important date in the Rodgers saga is coming up this week. Per the report, if the Packers were to trade Rodgers after June 1 they'd free up $16.05 million in cap space this year while shouldering a $21.152 million dead money hit, as opposed to eating a monstrous $38.356 million dead money charge if they traded him before June 2.

Footballguys view: NFL fans and Broncos fans specifically will be on the edge of their seat this week. After June 1 is the best time to trade away Rodgers but the Packers seem to have their heels dug in. Rodgers has been staying away from voluntary workouts, and we'll see if he misses mandatory work coming up in the near future. If things cannot be repaired between the two sides, then trading Rodgers might be on the table. However, we might have to go all the way to training camp (and maybe beyond) for that realization to happen. Stay tuned.

  Packers | Robert Tonyan under contract    Thu May 27, 06:07 PM

Green Bay Packers restricted free-agent TE Robert Tonyan signed his one-year tender offer Thursday, May 27. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Tonyan was a restricted free agent, and the Packers placed a second-round tender on him. He's a favorite target of QB Aaron Rodgers and is a TE1 for Fantasy GMs in 2021...so long as Rodgers is still with Green Bay.

  Packers | Jordan Love showing progress    Thu May 27, 09:13 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love has shown progress under center in the first week of organized team activities, according to RB Aaron Jones. 'You can tell he's just a lot more comfortable out there, even from communicating in the huddle to the command of the huddle to just everything,' Jones said after Tuesday's practice that was open to the media. 'He has had a year under his belt, he has had time to watch and learn, so you can tell it's a little bit different from what it was before. He's going to continue to grow, and I'm happy to be here working with him.'

Footballguys view: Love had a lot to learn when he came out of Utah State last year. The 2020 first-round pick has sound mechanics, he's athletic and he's got a strong arm. However, he's always on the attack as a passer and needed to read coverage better. Showing progress in practice is a good sign...especially if he's thrust into the starting lineup with a trade of Rodgers.

  Packers | Top Packers receivers sit out OTAs    Tue May 25, 08:13 PM

Green Bay Packers WRs Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, Devin Funchess and Equanimeous St. Brown were absent from organized team activities, along with QB Aaron Rodgers Tuesday, May 25. No reason was disclosed. Sophomore QB Jordan Love was left to run drills with a makeshift receiving group, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Footballguys view: The workouts are voluntary, but this does seem like a move of solidarity for their quarterback. Rodgers is disgruntled with the Packers front office and there are plenty of rumblings about him getting traded away - even though the team doesn't want to. If the Packers realize nothing is going to make him change his mind, then perhaps they look to trade Rodgers after June 1st (when the salary cap hit would be lower).

  Packers | Jordan Love catching the eye of his coach    Tue May 25, 03:10 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Jordan Love has made noticeable strides this offseason according to comments made by head coach Matt LaFleur, who noted it is 'obvious' that Love has been working hard to get better.

Footballguys view: It's good to hear that Love is making improvements because he was nowhere near ready last year as a rookie first-round pick. Love is the top man on the depth chart if Aaron Rodgers gets traded and could be the team's starter. Of course, the Packers are doing whatever they can to convince Rodgers to stay and this situation is in flux. Stay tuned.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers speaks on trade situation    Tue May 25, 08:15 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said the situation with the Packers is not because of the coaching staff or using a first-round pick on QB Jordan Love last year. 'It's never been about the draft pick, picking Jordan,' Rodgers said. 'I love Jordan; he's a great kid. I love the coaching staff. I love my teammates. I love the fan base in GB. It's just about a philosophy and maybe forgetting it is about the people that make things go.'

Footballguys view: Rodgers praised everyone with the Packers...except the front office. There's a situation that has been brewing for some time and we could see that come to a head in early June. After June 1st, that's when the Packers can trade Rodgers with a lower cap hit. That's if they decide to trade him at that time. The team wants to do whatever they can to convince Rodgers to stay but they may not be able to do that. The Broncos are waiting in the wings, ready to make a blockbuster move for Rodgers if he becomes available.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers did not report for the start of offseason workouts Monday, May 24.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Rodgers is disgruntled and there's plenty of buzz about him being traded after June 1st. The Packers are trying to patch things up, and that could include getting him a new contract in the near future. Rumors about them making offers have been out there for some time but nothing is concrete just yet. If nothing can be done and he must be traded, look for the Broncos to show the most interest.

  Packers | GB to work out Donald Hammond    Mon May 24, 01:13 PM

Undrafted free-agent QB Donald Hammond III (Air Force) is scheduled to work out for the Green Bay Packers Tuesday, May 25, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Hammond is a rusher who can rip the ball down the field. In 2019, Hammond threw for 13 touchdowns and ran for 13 touchdowns in the triple option offense of Air Force. The Packers have an uncertain quarterback situation due to Aaron Rodgers, and they've already brought in Blake Bortles and Kurt Benkert to compete for a spot on the depth chart (along with second-year pro Jordan Love). We'll see if Hammond can impress in his tryout on Tuesday to earn a job.

  Packers | Aaron Rodgers doesn't report to voluntaries    Mon May 24, 11:49 AM

Footballguys view: The workouts are voluntary, and the Rodgers situation has not yet been resolved. He's unhappy with his current situation and the Packers are working diligently to make it work with him. That could include a new contract, but if that can't work then after June 1st the team could trade him away. The Broncos are the most likely destination if Rodgers is dealt.

  Packers | Malik Taylor signs tender    Fri May 21, 05:02 PM

Green Bay Packers exclusive rights free-agent WR Malik Taylor signed his one-year tender offer Friday, May 21. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: As an ERFA Taylor didn't have much choice. Undrafted out of Ferris State in 2019, Taylor has been with the Packers mostly as a special teams player. He had five catches for 66 yards and one touchdown on offense in 2020, and his role may not grow much in 2021. In deep dynasty formats, we like keeping an eye on a guy like Taylor.

  Packers | Kurt Benkert signs with Green Bay    Sat May 15, 04:10 PM

Free-agent QB Kurt Benkert (Falcons) signed an undisclosed contract with the Green Bay Packers Saturday, May 15.

Footballguys view: The Packers add another arm to the quarterback room here. Benkert is a big-bodied pocket passer in the mold of a poor man's version of Matt Schaub. He's the no.4 quarterback on the depth chart behind Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love and Blake Bortles. It seems like Benkert is just there as a camp arm, but with this Rodgers situation he might actually be in line for a no.3 role.

  Packers | Davante Adams made routes count    Sat May 15, 12:50 PM

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams led the league with an average of 2.96 receiving yards per route run in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus data.

Footballguys view: Adams is fantastic, and he's the favorite target of QB Aaron Rodgers. With Rodgers perhaps wanting out of Green Bay, Adams fantasy value may change drastically if he's catching passes from Jordan Love (or Drew Lock?). Stay tuned.

  Packers | Coach: Aaron Rodgers wanted    Fri May 14, 02:17 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has been the subject of rampant trade speculation since reports surfaced in late April that he wants out of Green Bay. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said Friday, May 14, that there's 'nothing new to add' about the situation. 'We obviously still feel the same way,' LaFleur added. 'We want him back in the worst way. He knows that.'

Footballguys view: The Packers are trying their best to mend fences with Rodgers. There are rumblings that the team is working on a new contract that could make him the highest paid quarterback in the league. Jordan Love is not ready to take over as the team's starter and Rodgers is still playing at an elite level. Expect the Packers to make the strongest push possible to see if Rodgers will want to stay. June 1st is when his cap hit is greatly reduced in a trade, so that's a target date in this situation. Stay on the edge of your seat and stay tuned.

Van Lanen is scheduled to make $3,663,680 million, while Hill's financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Hill is a player who could be a late-round steal for the Packers. He has great feet for a big back and can make his own space with power and elusiveness. Hill is a good receiving option and can be a three-down player. He's working to be the no.3 back for the Packers this year behind Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon.

Footballguys view: Bortles has plenty of starting experience and gives them veteran depth behind Jordan Love.

Earlier reports speculated the team had offered an extension for Rodgers but that wasn't to his liking. The damage may already have been done by now, but Green Bay isn't going to just give up (nor should they). This saga continues until the Packers get him an offer he likes or they trade him away (if they do it would have to be after June 1st).

Free-agent QB Kurt Benkert (Falcons) and QB Chad Kelly (Colts) will participate in the Green Bay Packers rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Benkert is a tall pocket passer who can spray passes all over the field. Kelly has talent but has never played up to his potential. The arm strength is there, and he's mobile enough to throw on the run or pick up yards with his legs. Both quarterbacks are doing what they can just to stay in the league.

Green Bay Packers WR Amari Rodgers led college football with 25 catches of at least 15 yards out of the slot in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Rodgers has experience lining up in the slot and out wide, but in the slot is where he should shine in the NFL. He's built like a running back and plays like one after the catch. Rodgers also has great speed to attack the seam from the slot. We'd be a lot more excited about Rodgers in 2021 if we knew who his quarterback was going to be. Aaron Rodgers may force his way out of Green Bay and that would be a big negative for all Packers offensive players.

  Packers | Green Bay won't trade Aaron Rodgers    Fri Apr 30, 01:06 AM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will not be traded, according to GM Brian Gutekunst in remarks made following Round 1 of the NFL Draft on Thursday, April 29. Gutekunst added that Rodgers is 'our quarterback' and 'our leader,' though he also said that it 'may take some time' to work through the current differences between Rodgers and the team.

Footballguys view: Everyone has a price. They won't trade Rodgers now...but he doesn't want to be there, and there are only a handful of teams he wants to go to - a list that was made smaller on Day 1 of the 2021 NFL draft. According to PFT, Rodgers wanted to be traded to either the Broncos, Raiders or 49ers. With the 49ers selected Trey Lance to be their quarterback of the future they may be out. That leaves the option of moving Rodgers to the AFC West. We'll see if that happens.
