Former Packers WR Greg Jennings announces his retirement

Three years after departing Green Bay, the former Packer is hanging up the cleats for the last time. On the day after two members of the Green Bay Packers’ Super Bowl-winning team entered the Packers Hall of Fame, another member of the team’s 2010 roster is hanging up the cleats. Wide receiver Greg Jennings, who was one of the key players in the Packers’ win in Super Bowl XLV, has announced his retirement: Jennings started his career as a second-round draft pick of the Packers’ in 2006, and played his first two years with Brett Favre before Aaron Rodgers took over behind center....

Cheese Curds, 7/18: On Packers' safeties and the start & end of Brett Favre's career

While Green Bay's current safeties look to enter the league's elite, one of their predecessors is earning his well-deserved spot in the team's Hall of Fame. The Green Bay Packers have had numerous elite safeties over the franchise's history. Names like Willie Wood, Leroy Butler, and others come to mind when thinking back on the position. Soon, however, we hope to be able to add a couple more names to that illustrious list with the team's current pair of starters. While Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix are not the flashiest players at their position, they have become one of the steadiest...

Jared Allen Told Brett Favre To Stay Retired In 2010

We all remember the story from the 2010 offseason about how Steve Hutchinson, Ryan Longwell, and Jared Allen all went down to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to try to convince quarterback Brett Favre to return to the Minnesota Vikings for one more run. Now, with Favre scheduled to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame here in a few weeks, we've gotten another story about that trip. As it turns out, only two of those three players were trying to convince Favre to return. While Hutchinson and Longwell were trying to talk him into coming back, Allen was attempting to convince Favre to stay...

NFL Network To Air Special on Foreign Players Sunday

Since he became the first of the NFL's 253 members of the draft class of 2016 to sign his rookie contract, we haven't heard a whole lot from Minnesota Vikings' sixth-round choice Moritz Böhringer.

On Sunday, the NFL Network is going to give us a closer look at the journey that Böhringer has taken in his efforts to be the first player to make the jump from Europe directly to the National Football League. An inside look at @MoBoehringer's path to the...

Brett Favre responds to Derek Carr ‘gunslinger’ talk: “he’s a little bit more polished” than I was

Thursday Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre was asked about recent comparisons Derek Carr had to him. This offseason Michael Crabtree made a strong statement about his quarterback. He compared Derek Carr to soon-to-be-inducted Hall of Famer Brett Favre. “He is always going to be a gunslinger and I love that,” Crabtree said of Carr. “That's the old Brett Favre-type of quarterback, but really managing Brett Favre. Brett Favre is one of the greatest players to ever play." Derek Carr was asked about Crabtree’s comparison and, as you might expect, he was flattered by it, especially...

Rival Report 7/7: 30 ex-NFL players participating in medical marijuana study

It looks like former Baltimore Ravens Left Tackle Eugene Monroe's campaign for medical marijuana in the NFL is progressing well. Now 30 former players are taking part in a study with Dutch Dr. Arno Hazekamp (whose last name actually sounds like it could be a name for a marijuana strain) to research whether the whole plant or isolated compounds from the plant work better to treat their ailments. The outreach of Monroe and this new study has led to "productive dialogue" between the NFLPA and Dr. Marcel Bonn-Miller who is a professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman...

Falcons Players Who Hold League Wide Records

I'll go ahead and spare you the wall of Brett Favre records. The offseason is slow and painful, so we might as well take a look at some All-Time NFL Records to hold us over until August, yeah? To make it a little easier, I only covered the more broad records, and also players who had a significant presence with the team. So, let's get to it. Morten Andersen, Kicker Andersen, remembered forever by Falcons fans for his overtime field goal to send the franchise to its first Super Bowl, is arguably the most prosperous placekicker in NFL history and has a strong presence in the record books....
