B.J. Raji might not accept Packers' offer


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/7/2014) The Packers have offered defensive lineman B.J. Raji a short-term contract extension in advance of free agency, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Now they have to see if he accepts it.

The Packers offered Raji the options of one- and two-year contracts. For one year, their offer was for about $4 million. ESPN reported Thursday that Raji was close to a one-year deal, but the Journal-Sentinel report says the deal is not imminent and there are indications Raji isn't interested.

Raji would only want to sign a one-year deal if he thought the long-term offers he received weren't lucrative enough and there was still time left to shop himself when the NFL free agency signing period begins Tuesday. 

The Journal Sentinel reported during the 2013 season that Raji turned down a long-term offer averaging $8 million. That offer contained about $20 million in guaranteed money. Raji chose to play out the season and see if he could do better as a free agent.


Clay Matthews: Thumb injury won't linger


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews, who broke his right thumb twice in 2013, said the injury won't hamper him in 2014.

“It’s been doing well," Matthews said in a radio interview, per ESPN.com. "I’ve been getting physical therapy three times a week. I’ve been able to work out with a few limitations, but from talking with the doctors there shouldn’t be any limitations once next season rolls around.

"It’s just been a pain because obviously you look at it, it’s just a broken thumb. But it’s such an aggravating injury for a pass-rusher, especially in the manner in which I did it twice and having to have it surgically repaired twice, it doesn’t make it for an easy offseason in recovery.” 

Matthews was held to 7.5 sacks in 11 games last season.


Packers want more impact plays from Morgan Burnett


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Packers safety Morgan Burnett signed a four-year, $24.75 million contract last July, then went the whole season without an interception. He also failed to break up a 28-yard touchdown pass to tight end Vernon Davis in the playoff loss to the 49ers.

According to ESPN.com, Burnett "broke on the ball but looked like he was trying to swat a fly rather than making an aggressive move toward the ball." Said coach Mike McCarthy: “I mean, playmaking, you go get the football.” 

Still, McCarthy said Burnett is nowhere near a bust. Burnett, who had 96 tackles and three fumble recoveries in the regular season, would benefit from better play at the other safety position, the coach added.


Ryan Pickett wants to play one or two more years


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Free agent nose tackle Ryan Pickett, 34, wants to play another year or two and could return to the Packers at the team's price, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Pickett played in every game last season, making 21 tackles and batting down two passes.

Safety is Green Bay's weakest link


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Packers starting safeties Morgan Burnett and M.D. Jennings combined for zero interceptions last season, the first time that's happened in Green Bay since at least the 1950s, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Every other NFL team got an interception from a safety on its roster.

"We just didn't get it done and I don't think that was a lack of ability, because the ability is there," safeties coach Darren Perry told the paper. "We just have to make sure we're consistent."

Burnett led the team with three fumble recoveries, but also paced the Packers with 17 missed tackles. Coach Mike McCarthy said immediately after the season that he wants more "impact players" on defense.

Green Bay could give a longer look to Sean Richardson or Micah Hyde, or address the safety position through free agency and the draft.


Mike Daniels seeking leadership role with Packers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Packers 24-year-old defensive lineman Mike Daniels will not allow his relative youth to prevent him from assuming a leadership role. Daniels played in 48 percent of the snaps this season, but still finished second on the team with 6 1/2 snaps.

"I'm not afraid to step up as a leader now," he said. "I'm in my third year. I've made some plays. I've earned some respct in the locker room. I feel as though it's time for me to fully let my personality go. Just be myself. There's nothing holding me back now. I'm a young guy, but I'm considered a vet and vets can speak."

Daniels started just one regular-season game, but added a start in the playoff loss to San Francisco.


Pins removed from Clay Matthews' broken thumb


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2014) Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews had the pins removed from his surgically repaired right thumb last week, reports Fox Sports. "I need to get healthy," Matthews said. "Rehab my thumb and get it back to 100 percent so that way there is no setback starting next season."

Matthews broke the thumb for the second time Week 16. 


Report: 50-50 whether Packers re-sign Sam Shields


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) The Packers have been in regular contact with Sam Shields' representatives and want to resign the 26-year-old cornerback, but his return is considered 50-50, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Shields often matched up with the opponent's top receiver in 2013. His position coach regards him as a top-10 corner, the report said.

Dom Capers set to return as defensive coordinator


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2014) It looks like Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers will return for his sixth season. Coach Mike McCarthy twice called Capers an "outstanding football coach" during his season-ending news conference.

Green Bay ranked 25th in yards allowed (372.2), 24th in points allowed (26.8) and 25th in opposing passer rating (95.9). The Packers forced 22 turnovers (11 fumbles, 11 interceptions), well below Capers' 33.3 average in Green Bay, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Green Bay played much of the season without two of its biggest playmakers, linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb) and cornerback Casey Hayward (hamstring), and the run defense collapsed down the stretch.


Sam Shields to get MRI


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2014) Packers cornerback Sam Shields, who left Sunday's playoff game early with a knee injury, will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury, reports ProFootballTalk.com. The early diagnosis is a sprained MCL, the report said.

Packers DST can't corral Colin Kaepernick


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Depleted by injuries, the Packers DST held up well for the most part against the 49ers in Sunday's playoff loss. But the unit could not contain quarterback Colin Kaepernick's running, dooming Green Bay.

Kaepernick ran seven times for 98 yards, more than half of San Francisco's 167 rushing yards. Green Bay gave up 381 total yards and 23 points.

Cornerback Tramon Williams picked off Kaepernick in the second quarter, his fourth interception this year. Linebackers Nick Perry and Brad Jones and defensive end Mike Daniels all registered sacks.

The Packers DST should be stronger in 2014 assuming top pass rusher Clay Matthews returns healthy from his broken thumb.


Mike Neal suffers knee injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Packers outside linebacker Mike Neal suffered a knee injury in the first quarter against San Francisco. He made one tackle before leaving.

Sam Shields, Packers' top corner, carted off


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) Packers No. 1 cornerback Sam Shields suffered a knee injury early in the playoff game vs. the 49ers and was carted to the locker room. Shields got hurt making a tackle on receiver Michael Crabtree.

He was replaced by Davon House.


Clay Matthews ruled out for playoff game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2013) Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb) won't be able to play Sunday against the 49ers, coach Mike McCarthy said. The coach added he could not provide a timetable for Matthews, who also missed the regular-season finale.

Packers record late interception to clinch postseason spot


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Packers were not at their best, but managed to squeak by the Bears in Chicago in Week 17.

Green Bay had a hard time containing Chicago's running game, as Matt Forte gashed the defense for 110 yards on the ground. The defense also allowed two touchdowns and 226 yards passing from Jay Cutler. The Packers sealed the victory after Sam Shields picked off Cutler in the end zone on the final play of the game. The defense sacked Cutler once, forced two turnovers and allowed 345 yards of total offense in a 33-28 victory.

Green Bay will host the 49ers in the first round of the playoffs.

Green Bay signs Jumal Rolle from practice squad


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Packers have signed defensive back Jumal Rolle to their active roster on Friday, according to the team's official website. An undrafted free agent, Rolle played in two preseason games for the Bills before joining Green Bay's practice squad on October.

Clay Matthews probably out for at least Week 17


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Packers linebacker Clay Matthews could miss a critical game in Week 17 at Chicago after reinjuring his thumb Sunday against the Steelers. He left the game in the second quarter and didn't return.

"I couldn't give you a timetable," said Mike McCarthy, per ESPN after the game. "But I think based off the history of what happened the first time, I'm told it's similar to [a] repeat injury."

The first thumb injury required surgery and cost Matthews four games.


A.J. Hawk contributes interception against Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Packers linebacker A.J. Hawk couldn't stop the Steelers from scoring 38 points Sunday, but he did halt one drive with a sweet pick dropping back into coverage on the last play of the third quarter.

Hawk added six tackles, including four solos.


Packers DST impotent in loss to Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Packers DST would have needed a score to become a viable Fantasy play Sunday against Pittsburgh. And they didn't get one.

All they accomplished was two turnovers - one interception and one fumble recovery. They allowed the Steelers to tally 38 points and rack up 343 total yards. And the one sack hardly made a dent.


Clay Matthews done for the day


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Packers linebacker Clay Matthews will not return to the game Sunday against Pittsburgh. He was ruled out after aggravating a broken thumb when he sacked Ben Roethlisberger in the second quarter.

Clay Matthews aggravates thumb injury against Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Packers linebacker Clay Matthews apparently aggravated his broken right thumb late in the second quarter of their game Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Matthew sacked Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on the play and was soon being escorted to the locker room. His return was announced as questionable.


Packers submit Sunday inactive list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) headlines the list of inactives released Sunday by the Packers.

The others are linebacker Nate Palmer, guards JC Tretter and Lane Taylor and defensive end Jerel Worthy.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Packers linebackers fine for game against Steelers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Packers linebackers Brad Jones (ankle) and Nick Perry (foot) have been cleared to play Sunday against visiting Pittsburgh. They had both been deemed probable.

Week 16 not the time to trust Packers DST


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) The Packers DST hasn't been overly reliable for Fantasy owners in the second half of the season. Since Week 9, the Packers DST has scored more than 10 Fantasy points just twice and is averaging 8.4 Fantasy points per week over the last seven games.

Week 16 might not be the time to get brave either and put the Packers DST into active Fantasy lineups. DSTs average just 8.6 Fantasy points per week and no DST has scored more than 8 Fantasy points in the last six games against Pittsburgh.

The Steelers offense has been tough to slow down lately. Pittsburgh is averaging 28 points and 358.6 yards over the last seven games. 

Fantasy owners should look toward other alternatives over the Packers DST Week 16. Some other options include the Dolphins (@BUF), Lions (vs. NYG) and Chargers (vs. OAK).
