Aaron Rodgers said he thinks he'll play in Thursday's preseason game versus the Steelers.

He also said he's less likely to play in Green Bay's final two preseason games. Brett Hundley and DeShone Kizer undoubtedly need the extra reps prior to the season, so Rodgers is only expected to play one or two possessions. If Randall Cobb (ankle) is unavailable again, it will be interesting to see if the Packers start the game with Davante Adams, Geronimo Allison, and DeAngelo Yancey in 3-WR sets, much like the club did in their first preseason game.

Packers RB Aaron Jones (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday.

It's the first time Jones has practiced since the first week of camp. Lingering hamstring issues are a concern, but this is positive news for Jones, whose absence has allowed Jamaal Williams to emerge as the team's inevitable No. 1. Williams was in on all eight plays in the Packers' opening drive Thursday, and will likely receive a two-week trial run as starter while Jones serves a two-game suspension to open the season. Jones needs to make a good impression with the reps he'll receive in camp moving forward.

Free agent TE Marcedes Lewis will visit the Packers this week.

Lewis was released by the Jaguars more than two months ago, and this is the first known interest we've seen emerge for him. He just turned 34 last week and spent 12 seasons with Jacksonville. Green Bay has Jimmy Graham and Lance Kendricks at tight end, but Lewis could provide help as a blocker.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports there is "nothing imminent" between the Packers and free agent Dez Bryant, and that a signing is unlikely.

Bryant's ex-teammate Jason Witten recently opined that Bryant would end up with the Packers. Witten did say he was mostly guessing, but considering how close Witten is to the situation, his guess is notable. Seemingly asking for too much money, Bryant's market has been ice cold, as he's yet to even make a visit since getting released from the Cowboys on April 13.
May 15 - 4:35 PM

On The Adam Schefter Podcast, Monday Night Football's Jason Witten said he believes former teammate Dez Bryant will sign with the Packers.

"I don't have any insight on that," Witten added. Still, his opinion is notable considering the duo spent eight seasons together in Dallas. It would also be a good fit. The Packers need someone opposite Davante Adams on the outside, and Bryant's skill set would fit well in the old Jordy Nelson role. Green Bay did take three receivers in the draft, but letting the rookies sit behind Bryant for a year makes sense.

Browns claimed P Justin Vogel off waivers from the Packers.

Much of Cleveland's new front office comes from Green Bay. Vogel will get an opportunity to compete with Britton Colquitt for the Browns' punting job.
May 7 - 4:45 PM

Packers waived P Justin Vogel.

Green Bay had no use for Vogel after taking Alabama punter JK Scott in the fifth round of last week's draft. Vogel enjoyed a serviceable rookie year for the Packers in 2017, averaging 44.4 yards on 71 punts while ranking seventh in net average (41.6). The University of Miami alum shouldn't take long to resurface.
May 4 - 2:54 PM

Packers waived QB Joe Callahan.

Callahan spent most of the past two years on the Packers' 53-man roster but could never progress past camp arm status. The Wesley College product turns 25 in June.
Apr 30 - 2:52 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Packers are "plotting" a move up in the first round.

The Packers have the No. 14 pick, but will likely need to move up to land Alabama DB Minkah Fitzpatrick. They've also been linked to Florida State S Derwin James, Ohio State CB Denzel Ward and Iowa's Josh Jackson. Without much draft ammunition, Green Bay may have to trade future picks to get a deal done.
Apr 25 - 5:29 PM

ESPN's Rob Demovsky believes the Packers could be looking to trade up in the first round for a defensive back.

Green Bay currently owns the No. 14 overall pick, which might be too late to land Florida State S Derwin James, Ohio State CB Denzel Ward, and Alabama CB/S Minkah Fitzpatrick. Demovsky believes the Packers covet that trio, meaning they would need to move up to ensure they land one of them. If they stand pat, Green Bay could turn to Iowa CB Josh Jackson.

Packers signed WR Geronimo Allison to a one-year contract.

Allison was an exclusive rights free agent, so his only options were to sign the tender or sit out the season. Packers also re-signed WR Michael Clark, CB Donatello Brown, QB Joe Callahan, FB Joe Kerridge, OT Adam Pankey, OG Justin McCray, OG Lucas Patrick, and S Jermaine Whitehead.
Apr 17 - 7:02 PM

The Cardinals, Ravens, Bills, and Packers have shown interest in free agent Dez Bryant.

All four teams Schefter lists have adequate cap space to sign Bryant. The Bills would be an interesting landing spot if only because Bryant would immediately become the focal point of a passing game that saw LeSean McCoy lead the team in both targets and receptions from the backfield last season. Joining the Packers sans Jordy Nelson would still give Bryant the best fantasy outlook for 2018.
Apr 14 - 12:47 PM

Packers re-signed CB Davon House to a one-year contract.

House struggled through a back injury in the latter half of 2017. Prior to that the team had enough confidence in him to shadow both Mike Evans and Josh Gordon. House and Tramon Williams will tutor the youth behind them, including 2017 second-round pick CB Kevin King.
Apr 12 - 3:04 PM

Browns agreed to terms with WR Jeff Janis, formerly of the Packers.

New Browns GM John Dorsey obviously has intel on Janis with both being former Packers. Janis was a 2014 seventh-rounder with off-the-charts measurables, but he never got much of a fair shake in Green Bay. He had a monster 2015 Divisional Round playoff game against Arizona, catching seven balls for 145 yards and two touchdowns, but Janis did most of his "damage" in the preseasons. He has six career preseason touchdowns to go with 17 catches for 308 yards. Janis looks to be no more than the No. 4 receiver in Cleveland but has proven to be an excellent special teams gunner chasing down kickoffs and punts.
Mar 30 - 12:34 PM

The Packers will visit with free agent CB Delvin Breaux.

Breaux is also scheduled to visit the 49ers. He had early interest from Denver and New England, but didn't land a deal. Breaux has faded due to injuries the last two years, playing in just six games. He's a starting corner when healthy.
Mar 24 - 5:02 PM

Free agent WR Jordan Matthews visited the Packers on Thursday.

The Packers are still looking to add a body at receiver after releasing Jordy Nelson. Recovering from knee and ankle operations, 25-year-old Matthews has made just one other visit to date. It's possible he's still not far along enough in his recovery to merit contract offers.
Mar 22 - 6:30 PM

Cowboys signed LB Joe Thomas, formerly of the Packers.

A key reserve and special teamer in Green Bay, Thomas was surprisingly not tendered by the Packers as a restricted free agent. He'll compete for snaps with Damien Wilson behind Jaylon Smith and Sean Lee in Dallas' linebacker corps.
Mar 21 - 8:39 PM

Steelers signed S Morgan Burnett, formerly of the Packers.

Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the deal carries a total value of $14.5 million. Pittsburgh needed help at safety after cutting both Mike Mitchell and Robert Golden, and Burnett was arguably the best available option in what has been an extremely slow moving market. Burnett should settle in as the starter opposite Sean Davis.
Mar 20 - 8:46 AM

Packers signed CB Kyle Fuller to a multi-year offer sheet.

Green Bay is trying to poach Fuller from division-rival Chicago, which presently has Fuller's rights via the transition tag. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Bears "have planned to match any offer" Fuller gets. If the Packers structure Fuller's deal to make it difficult for the Bears to match, however, Chicago would receive zero compensation, and wouldn't even be eligible for a compensatory pick in 2019. The Bears have five days to match the Packers' offer.
Mar 16 - 4:51 PM

Raiders signed WR Jordy Nelson, formerly of the Packers, to a two-year, $15 million contract.

As expected, the Raiders cut Michael Crabtree and his $7.5 million in salary and bonuses for 2018 and gave it to Nelson, who gets $13 million guaranteed. Nelson (33 in May) is two years older than Crabtree and looked washed with the Packers last season, though we're going to give him the benefit of the doubt for now, considering he was playing with Brett Hundley. (It didn't bother Davante Adams.) Nelson will be the starter opposite Amari Cooper, who coach Jon Gruden said will be the focal point of the offense. Consider Nelson a WR3 for now.
