Free agent DT Quinton Dial worked out with the Packers Tuesday.

Green Bay needs another option on the defensive line after placing Muhammad Wilkerson on injured reserve. Dial wasn't signed following his workout, but he's reportedly a "definite" option to fill Wilkerson's spot. Dial is familiar with the Packers' defensive scheme stemming from his stint with the team just last year.

Packers waived FB Aaron Ripkowski.

Dan Gaspar's favorite DFS sleeper was a decent short-yardage option at times but lacked high-end lead-blocking ability. He could resurface as a special teamer elsewhere. The Packers are expected to carry an extra tight end.
Sep 1 - 2:03 PM

Packers waived RB Devante Mays.

Mays missed virtually all of training camp with a hamstring injury. A seventh-round pick in last year's draft, Mays was buried behind Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones, and Ty Montgomery on the depth chart.
Sep 1 - 1:49 PM

Packers waived OLB Vince Biegel.

Biegel was a fourth-round pick just last year, but new GM Brian Gutekunst has proven aggressive in his first year on the job. Biegel didn't register a sack in nine games as a rookie and couldn't crack a weak pass-rusher depth chart.
Sep 1 - 1:48 PM

Packers released CB Demetri Goodson.

Goodson was a semi-regular starter in 2016 but spent all last year on reserve/PUP. He was expendable after the Packres invested early-round picks in Jaire Alexander and Josh Jackson. 29-year-old Goodson should draw some free-agent interest.
Sep 1 - 12:23 PM

Seahawks acquired QB Brett Hundley from the Packers in exchange for a 2019 sixth-round pick.

Hundley is entering the final year of his rookie deal and was expendable in Green Bay after the Packers got 2017 second-rounder DeShone Kizer from the Browns to back up Aaron Rodgers. For Seattle, Hundley will slide in as Russell Wilson's No. 2, jumping Austin Davis and seventh-round rookie Alex McGough. Hundley was terrible as the Packers' starter in 10 games last year and likely needed a change of scenery. He's drawn mostly positive reviews from camp this year.

Green Bay Press-Gazette's Ryan Wood believes WR DeAngelo Yancey is a long shot to make the Packers' roster.

Yancey has primarily been used in the slot during the preseason. With Randall Cobb already pegged as the club's starting slot receiver, and rookie WR Equanimeous St. Brown playing 71% of his preseason snaps in the slot, Yancey has become expendable to a team rich in assets at receiver. Wood also believes rookie WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling is a good bet to make the roster given what he's shown so far (8-6-116-1) in the preseason.

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.
Aug 13 - 4:03 PM

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.
