Packers look forward to facing former teammate Eddie Lacy


He played in 62 games over eight seasons with the Packers, with 45 of his 51 touchdown catches coming with Green Bay. Wilson has thrown as many as three interceptions in a game only one other time in his career - against the Rams in 2012. Green Bay has nothing but rookies behind Montgomery at tailback led by former BYU standout Jamaal Williams. "The players vote on that and I think again they've recognized the guys that really do everything that we want them to". "We've got to do our part, everybody does their part, and that's how you put yourself in that position to win a championship, and we've got to do it again this year". It's noteworthy that the team made a decision to cut Ringo, a 2015 sixth-round pick who spent his rookie season on the practice squad before seeing action in eight games a year ago, instead of putting Adams on injured reserve to create a roster spot. He's a tricky matchup for opposing defenses with his pass-catching ability. The Vikings need a strong running back to ease the pressure on quarterback Sam Bradford if they are to have any chance of overtaking the Packers and second-round pick Cook seems to fit the bill.

Lockett played nine games as a true freshman at Kansas State in 2011 before suffering a lacerated kidney against Oklahoma State that shut him down for the year.

Taylor's new deal: Veteran guard Lane Taylor signed a 3-year extension on Monday, a year after moving into the starting lineup when Pro Bowler Josh Sitton was unexpectedly cut at the end of training camp in 2016.

Can't imagine you can stuff more season opening storylines in one day than we had today as the Green Bay Packers ramped up preparations for Sunday's season kickoff against the Seattle Seahawks. If Seattle's defensive front stifles the run early and often, then Green Bay will have to keep the pace by utilizing the quick pass game. In fact, there's talk that he's still a potential candidate for injured reserve.

Sheldon Richardson joins one of the most talented defenses in the NFL.

The Packers have performed remarkably as home favorites of three points or more lately, going 23-6-1 SU and 17-11-2 ATS in their last 30 dating back to 2013. I played it all throughout college, I played it all throughout my years in San Francisco. Playing in the cold at Lambeau gives the Packers a decided advantage in the playoffs, of course.
