Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he will continue to call plays in 2016.
McCarthy ceded playcalling duties to Tom Clements last offseason, but he took them back in December in an attempt to jump-start the Packers' stagnated offense. McCarthy did manage to get the running game going for a couple weeks, but he never truly fixed the passing-game woes. Jordy Nelson's return should help, but the Packers need to find better weapons or McCarthy needs to give his receivers more help getting open in 2016. Jan 19 - 9:11 AM

Mike McCarthy has reclaimed Packers playcalling duties from OC Tom Clements.

McCarthy ceded the duties to Clements before the season. Clements was a disaster in the play-calling role, however, refusing to use scheme and route combinations to create space for his wide receivers, who have struggled mightily to get open all year. The decision was reportedly made very early in the week, so McCarthy had time to make changes with the Packers returning from a ten-day layoff following their Thursday night Hail Mary win over Detroit.

Coach Mike McCarthy is "considering" giving up his role as the Packers' offensive play-caller.

Historically, McCarthy has been adamant about remaining the play-caller for Aaron Rodgers and Co., but after he was extremely passive in the NFC title game against the Seahawks -- settling for two short field goals instead of going for touchdowns -- he's now considering a step back. OC Tom Clements would be the in-house favorite to call plays, as the Packers aren't going to hire anyone from the outside. QBs coach Alex Van Pelt is another option. McCarthy would then become an overseer in a Jason Garrett/Mike Tomlin-type role.

Packers signed coach Mike McCarthy to a multi-year contract extension.

Teams rarely divulge coaching-contract details, but McCarthy was believed to already be making more than $5 million per season. ESPN's Rob Demovsky believes his extension likely takes him through 2018. In his ninth season as head coach, McCarthy is just five wins (93) behind Vince Lombardi for the second most in franchise history. McCarthy can suffer from being too vanilla, and has undying loyalty for mediocre DC Dom Capers, but has been a competent guiding hand for generational talent Aaron Rodgers. He's worthy of being locked up for multiple more seasons.

Sources tell the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel the Packers are working on a contract extension with coach Mike McCarthy.

McCarthy and GM Ted Thompson each signed new deals in 2011. McCarthy is signed only through the end of the 2015 season, while Thompson is under contract through the end of the 2016 draft. McCarthy's old deal is worth $6.5 million annually, so he'll likely pursue a raise in the $7-8 million range. Bill Belichick is currently the NFL's highest paid coach at $11 million per season.

Packers HC Mike McCarthy said he was "hopeful" Green Bay could add a young quarterback in the draft.

The Packers have only drafted one quarterback in the last five years, B.J. Coleman in the seventh round in 2012. The lack of emphasis on developing a backup quarterback hurt Green Bay when Aaron Rodgers went down with a collarbone injury in 2013 as three backup quarterbacks combined for a 2-4-1 record. The Packers have reportedly talked to several quarterbacks at the NFL Combine, including David Fales from San Jose St.
