Davante Adams said he is moving on from his disappointing sophomore campaign.

Injuries played a role in Adams' poor play last year, but he was still ineffective when healthy. "Obviously, the season I had last year, I wasn’t proud of it," Adams said. "You can’t control some things. I hurt my ankle, I hurt my knee; I can’t do anything about that. What I can do is bounce back from it." Once the clear No. 3 behind Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, Adams could be fighting for a roster spot this offseason.

Packers LT David Bakhtiari said the sprained ankle he suffered in December will require regular attention moving forward.

"It's hard when something like that changes your ankle," Bakhtiari said. "You have to be conscientious of it and make sure that if anything happens, or if you notice anything, just make sure to take care of it and not let it linger." The injury did not require surgery, but it sounds like it is something he will have to deal with for the rest of his career. Bakhtiari is entering the final year of his rookie deal. No. 48 overall pick Jason Spriggs may be Green Bay's left tackle of the future.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Jordy Nelson (ACL) is "right on schedule."

Nelson is being held out of team work during OTAs, but it is not because he is behind schedule in his rehab from an August ACL tear. "We don't want to push it too much because we're still in May," Nelson said. "Our goal is obviously September." Nelson should ramp up his activity as the offseason program wears on and could be a full-go for camp. His Week 1 status is not in doubt.

A source tells ESPN's Rob Demovsky Eddie Lacy still weighs "in the 240s."

It means Lacy was tipping the scales near 260 last season, as he's believed to have lost 15-18 pounds. Lacy weighed in at 231 at the Combine. Speaking Wednesday, coach Mike McCarthy suggested the team still wants Lacy to lose more weight. "Eddie will be fine," McCarthy said. "I believe he'll hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on." McCarthy also reiterated that Lacy "cannot play at the weight he was at (last) year." Lacy should have more P90X on tap for the summer.

Jordy Nelson is still practicing "(against) air" in individual drills.

Nelson isn't behind schedule, but the Packers aren't rushing their No. 1 receiver. He's unlikely to take part in any team drills before training camp. Barring a major setback, Nelson will be ready to rock for Week 1, and likely the preseason.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky believes Jared Cook was the Packers' best offseason addition.

"Cook has the potential to give the Packers a legitimate down-the-field tight end for the first time since Jermichael Finley," Demovsky writes. Coach Mike McCarthy spoke openly about his desire to acquire a "big man" to run down the seams this offseason, and the front office acquiesced by signing Cook. Despite disappointing at every turn throughout his career, Cook may finally be in a position to return consistent fantasy value. He is an interesting late-round flier.

Ravens waived S Jermaine Whitehead.

They also waived Marlon Brown, Nordly Capi and Nick Perry. Whitehead signed with Baltimore in December after spending most of his rookie year on the Niners' practice squad. He'll catch on as a camp body somewhere else.
May 13 - 2:41 PM

Packers signed third-round OLB Kyler Fackrell to a four-year contract.

Fackrell was extremely productive in the Mountain West before tearing up the Combine, flashing 4.72 speed to go along with a 10-foot-1 broad jump. Going on 25, Fackrell is extremely old for a prospect, and could already be a finished product. The Packers will take it if his "SAK" skills translate from college to the big leagues.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky believes WR Jeff Janis is one of the "losers" of the offseason.

Janis entered the offseason on fire after a 7-145-2 game in the Divisional Round loss to the Cardinals, but Demovsky believes the addition of fifth-round WR Trevor Davis along with the return of Jordy Nelson (knee) and Ty Montgomery (ankle) puts Janis in a tough position. Davis is unlikely to be more than a special teams contributor as a rookie, however, and Montgomery does not bring the same skills to the table. Janis should be given a shot to beat out Davante Adams for the No. 3 receiver job, and he has the talent to win that battle.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky said Eddie Lacy is one of the "winners" of the offseason.

Despite conditioning concerns putting his future in question earlier this offseason, Lacy is entering the summer in good shape -- in every sense of the phrase. Lacy reportedly has shed 15-18 pounds, and that weight loss likely gave GM Ted Thompson the confidence to ignore the running back position both in free agency and the draft. Lacy now looks poised to enter his contract year as the clear lead back, and a good performance should earn him a nice new contract. Lacy is a great target in the second round of fantasy drafts.

Packers signed No. 48 overall pick OT Jason Spriggs to a four-year, $5.004 million contract.

The deal contains a $1.839 million signing bonus and $2.966 million guaranteed. The Packers gave up a fourth- and seventh-round pick to move up nine spots in the second round to land Spriggs, but it is unlikely he is a factor right away. LT David Bakhtiari and RT Bryan Bulaga are locked into the starting lineup, and it is unlikely Spriggs will challenge LG Josh Sitton or RG T.J. Lang. Three of those four are scheduled to be free agents after this season, however, and it is unlikely Green Bay is able to keep all of Bakhtiari, Sitton, and Lang from hitting free agency. Spriggs might have to wait a year, but he could be the future at left tackle.

Packers first-round DT Kenny Clark won't be allowed to participate in OTAs until UCLA's academic year ends in June.

Clark participated in rookie minicamp last week but under league rules, that's all he's allowed to do until the school year ends. "I wish I could stay here," said Clark. "But I think that will probably be one of the more difficult parts—that I won’t be here with the team." It's a silly, outdated rule but Clark has to follow it. Clark will be a little behind his teammates when he arrives at camp but there's still plenty of time for him to get up to speed.

Packers signed No. 131 overall pick LB Blake Martinez to a four-year contract.

The first of Green Bay's two fourth-round picks, Martinez has potential for a rookie-year impact on the inside of Dom Capers' defense. He was solid in coverage at Stanford last season and will compete for a sub-package role. Martinez should give Clay Matthews more pass rush opportunities.
May 6 - 7:20 PM

Packers signed fourth-round DE Dean Lowry to a four-year contract.

Lowry is a high-energy worker along the defensive front and gets by with a non-stop motor. He'll compete for sub-package snaps in year one.
May 6 - 11:29 AM

Packers signed No. 163 overall pick WR Trevor Davis to a four-year contract.

Davis is a speed merchant who blew up the Combine, but struggles at the finer points of catching the ball. It's quite possible he turns into a special teams only player, though the Pack will undoubtedly give him a look as a deep threat. If Davis hit his ceiling, he would be a big play waiting to happen.
