Packers S Jermaine Whitehead was cited for driving 110 MPH in a 70 MPH zone on May 19.

Whitehead, along with three Packers teammates, was pulled over at 3:39 AM in Wisconsin as they were trying to get to Green Bay for workouts at 8 AM that morning. He faces a $515.50 fine. Whitehead spent most of 2017 on the practice squad but appeared in two games as a special teamer.

Packers CB Quinten Rollins underwent offseason groin surgery.

Rollins dealt with the injury for much of last year and decided to visit renowned specialist Dr. William Meyers shortly after the season to get a fix. He opened OTAs with no restrictions, but it's worth noting nonetheless. Rollins will be part of the battle for snaps at corner in Green Bay, along with Damarious Randall, Davon House, Ladarius Gunter, and second-rounder Kevin King.
May 23 - 9:43 PM

The Packers expect second round CB Kevin King to be a Week 1 starter.

King should start opposite Davon House, with Damarious Randall playing the slot. The Packers are counting on an immediate impact from King after fielding one of the worst secondaries in the league. King will reduce Quinten Rollins and LaDarius Gunter to sub-package roles.

The Packers wanted to become more versatile this season.

"I think the more versatility you have in any aspect of this business, it helps you," coach Mike McCarty said. "This definitely fits in the mode of the more you can do, the better opportunity you have to progress." Green Bay lost versatile DB Micah Hyde but did their best to replace him with second-rounder Josh Jones. First-rounder Kevin King played safety and corner in college.

Packers signed second-round S Josh Jones to a four-year contract.

The Packers now have seven of their 10 draft picks under contract. A plus athlete with good size (6'1/220), Jones has the ability to play both safety positions. He may also see snaps at linebacker and slot corner.

Packers fourth-round OLB Vince Biegel is recovering from foot surgery to repair a "Jones" fracture, and is questionable for the start of training camp.

Biegel first dealt with the issue as a senior at Wisconsin last year. The Pack "hope" Biegel will be ready for camp, but reporter Rob Demovsky considers it "not a guarantee." It's strikingly poor news for Biegel, who faces a bevy of questions as a prospect. Elderly for a rookie (24 in July), Biegel is undersized for an edge prospect (6-foot-3, 246 pounds) and put a lot of bad plays on film in the Big 10. The odds he makes a 2017 impact are small.
May 15 - 3:26 PM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky thinks fourth-round OLB Vince Biegel will have the opportunity to contribute "right away."

Vikings reporter Ben Goessling also tabbed Biegel as a potential early contributor. Biegel is probably not strong enough for an early-down role right out of the gate, but the Packers need pass rushers. He could carve out a situational role as a rookie.

Packers signed second-round CB Kevin King to a four-year contract.

The No. 33 overall selection, King was the Pack's top pick this year. A hulking, for a corner, 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, King is also a rare athlete. He'll be given every opportunity to earn a starting job as a rookie.

Packers director of college scouting Brian Gutekunst is interviewing for the Bills' general-manager vacancy.

Bleacher Report's Tyler Dunne, a former top Bills and Packers beat writer, has been campaigning for Gutekunst to get the gig. Gutekunst is a highly-regarded name and rising star in the front office part of the sport. He has been at his post in Green Bay since 2012 and broke into the league in the late-90s. Gutekunst was considered the "favorite" for the 49ers' GM job, but he backed out early in the process before the job went to FOX Sports analyst John Lynch.

Packers signed Marshall WR Michael Clark.

Clark (6’6/217) played only one season at Marshall after transferring from St. Francis (PA), where he earned a scholarship to play basketball. Clark compiled a 37-632-5 (17.1 YPR) receiving line in 2016, then surprisingly turned pro. Not invited to the Combine, Clark ran 4.53 at the Thundering Herd Pro Day, but struggled in the vertical (33") and three-cone drill (7.54). While Clark’s height and multi-sport background make him somewhat intriguing, he has minimal football experience and struggled with drops and separation on tape. He’s a long-shot prospect perhaps worth stashing on the practice squad.

Packers signed fifth-round RB Aaron Jones, fifth-round WR DeAngelo Yancey, sixth-round C Kofi Amichia, seventh-round RB Devante Mays, and seventh-round WR Malachi Dupre to four-year contracts.

Green Bay still has to get its five second- through fourth-rounders signed, but rookie contracts have become a formality. Jones was one of three running backs the Packers drafted last weekend. Jones is someone to closely track if the Ty Montgomery to full-time running back thing doesn't work out.
May 5 - 12:07 PM

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky wrote "it wouldn't be a surprise" if second-round CB Kevin King is in the starting lineup Week 1.

King could form a brand new starting duo with free-agent signing Davon House after Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins disappointed last season even when they were healthy enough to be on the field. At worst, King's arrival will give the Packers quality depth they were desperately lacking last year.

Packers exercised FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix's fifth-year team option for 2018.

The No. 21 overall pick of the 2014 draft, Clinton-Dix is coming off back-to-back strong seasons. Clinton-Dix has never missed an NFL game.
May 1 - 2:26 PM

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers "came close" to trading Brett Hundley on Day 2 of the draft.

With Aaron Rodgers still at the top of his game, Hundley won't be seeing the field anytime soon in Green Bay. It looks like Hundley is staying put for now but Demovsky still expects the Packers to move him before he enters his contract year in 2018. Hundley has logged just 27 snaps since arriving as a fifth-round pick in 2015.

Apr 30 - 1:02 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy insisted Saturday that Ty Montgomery is still the team's starting running back.

This comes after the Packers added three running backs in the draft including fourth-rounder Jamaal Williams from BYU. Montgomery made a surprisingly smooth transition from receiver to running back last year, averaging a robust 5.9 yards per carry while leading the Packers with 457 rushing yards. Despite this, Montgomery only topped 10 carries in a game once and will probably work in tandem with Christine Michael and some combination of the running backs Green Bay just drafted.
