Player News - Packers

Date: Team: Pos:

Coach Mike McCarthy said the Packers will have a "running back by committee."

"We feel like we've got three guys that have all done, but they haven't done it over a long period of time," McCarthy said, "so I think it's just practical thinking from that position and realizing that it's a very demanding position." McCarthy did leave open the possibility of one player emerging as the clear option, but it sounds like all of Jamaal Williams, Ty Montgomery, and Aaron Jones will have a role to open the season, terrible news for each player's fantasy prospects. Perhaps someone emerges in camp, but this is shaping up as a situation to avoid.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky speculates Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (ACL) could open training camp on the PUP list.

Bulaga suffered a torn ACL in November. Coach Mike McCarthy expressed optimism about every injured player except Bulaga on Thursday, suggesting the team expects him to sit into camp. The Packers will have big questions at right tackle if Bulaga is not ready by Week 1.

Packers contract-year FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix wants an extension before the start of the season.

Clinton-Dix skipped OTAs but returned for minicamp. A Pro Bowler in 2016, Clinton-Dix is coming off a down year but is a solid building block for the Packers’ secondary. He should command top-10 safety money ($7M-plus annually).

Packers DB Kentrell Brice is recovering from November ankle surgery.

Brice was injured in Week 4 against the Bears but ended up playing four weeks on the injury. It was later revealed he suffered a torn deltoid ligament in the ankle and needed surgery two months later. A former 2016 UDFA out of Louisiana Tech, Brice has been in on over 600 snaps the past two years.

Geronimo Allison (ankle) is sidelined for minicamp.

With Jordy Nelson gone, Allison has been running as the Packers' No. 3 receiver this offseason. Allison's training camp status isn't in doubt.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky writes Ty Montgomery appears set for a "significant role in the offense."

Demovsky added Montgomery "didn't appear to lose any ground" to Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones during OTAs. "We have to take advantage of Ty's skills, and there's no question about that," coach Mike McCarthy said. "The offense is suited for that." While it still seems more likely Williams or Jones wins the early-down role, Montgomery is clearly not going away. He could end up being a value in the double-digit rounds.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky writes Packers OL Justin McCray is a "virtual lock to start at right guard."

This was the expected outcome before the offseason program, and McCray has done nothing to lose his spot over the last couple months. "The kid just keeps impressing you," OL coach James Campen said. "The things he has done and displayed this offseason speaks volumes to where he wants to go. I think you just saw the tip of what Justin will be." McCray struggled a bit as he moved around the formation last season, but having one position to focus on could help him take the next step.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said there are no long-term concerns for Clay Matthews (nose).

Matthews took a comebacker to the face in a charity softball game over the weekend. Luckily, he only suffered a broken nose, although the injury will require surgery this week. Matthews should be ready to training camp.

Packers OLB Clay Matthews was hospitalized after taking a comebacker at a charity softball game.

He suffered a broken nose but avoided a concussion. Matthews has been sitting out OTAs with a knee injury, so this could impact his availability for minicamp.

According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Aaron Rodgers wants an out clause in his next contract.

Rodgers has clearly outgrown his seven-year, $130.75 million contract and now ranks just 10th among quarterbacks in average annual salary. Per Garafolo, Rodgers is seeking an out clause that would allow him to renegotiate his deal whenever another quarterback tops his salary. Rodgers is certainly deserving of a raise, but demanding to be the highest-paid player in the league at all times just isn't realistic. The best solution for Rodgers would be to sign a short-term extension rather than the seven-year deal he agreed to in 2013.

Packers signed G/T Byron Bell, formerly of the Cowboys.

Bell made two starts at left tackle for Dallas last season, appearing in five games total spanning 243 snaps. In Green Bay, Bell will compete for a swing job. He can play guard or tackle.

Packers CB Quinten Rollins (Achilles) got in limited work during OTAs.

Rollins suffered a torn Achilles last October. "It feels good," Rollins said. "I’m day by day still with it, and every day is different. I’m just trying to take it one day at a time." Rollins will likely be limited throughout the offseason program, but it appears he has a chance to be full-go at or near the start of camp. With two early-round rookies and Tramon Williams added to the secondary this offseason, Rollins is firmly on the roster bubble.

According to ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky, Geronimo Allison is currently Green Bay's "de facto" No. 3 receiver.

We would agree. Allison is entering his third season and is the elder statesman of the group behind Davante Adams and Randall Cobb. Allison has flashed big skills at times his first two seasons but did little with Brett Hundley last year. He'll face competition from rookie draft picks J'Mon Moore, Equanimeous St. Brown, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling for snaps out wide.

Packers signed TE Marcedes Lewis, formerly of the Jaguars.

The longtime — 12 years — Jaguar will join Jimmy Graham as a blocking complement. As evidenced by his five touchdowns last season, 34-year-old Lewis also offers a strong pair of hands in the red zone. Lewis should catch some touchdown passes from Aaron Rodgers but won't be a fantasy option in 2018. It's possible Lewis' presence ends up making Lance Kendricks expendable.
May 24 - 6:37 PM

Packers LG Lane Taylor (ankle) is sitting out OTAs.

Taylor is recovering from offseason clean-up surgery. He's expected to be fine for the start of training camp. Taylor is entering the second season of a three-year, $16.5 million extension.
