Cheese Curds, 6/29: NFLPA to fight Matthews/Peppers interviews; Packers too popular for UK game

If you think the Players' Union is going to just roll over and let the league grill a couple of its members about some tenuous (at best) allegations, think again. The Green Bay Packers' 2016 offseason has been a largely quiet one, and has seen just a single significant off-the-field storyline affecting the roster, a welcome change from 2015 which featured a couple of arrests. No, this year's story is not even a story, according to the NFL Players Association - it centers around the performance-enhancing drug allegations against Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers in a report from last fall...

Report: NFL schedules interviews with Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers in PED investigation

The league is taking last year’s Al Jazeera report seriously, even as the main witness has recanted his statements. During the 2015 football season, Al-Jazeera America released the details of an investigation into performance-enhancing drugs in the NFL. Mentioned by one of the network’s informants were the names of three Green Bay Packers players - Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, and Mike Neal. While Neal remains a free agent, Matthews and Peppers remain under contract with the Packers and will report to training camp on July 25th, with the team’s first practice being held on July...

Packers excuse veterans from minicamp, practice with more watching from sideline

Green Bay let veteran stars like Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews stay home for the team's three-day minicamp session. The Green Bay Packers kicked off their mandatory minicamp on Tuesday. While the media and fans may have noticed the complete absence of veterans like Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews, the number of players present but unable to participate reached double digits. With Green Bay receiving an extra week of offseason practice due to the team's Hall of Fame game appearance in early August, head coach Mike McCarthy decided to excuse 15 veterans players from the three-day minicamp....

NFL Top 100: Packers' Clay Matthews lands at No. 57 in 2016

The second player from Green Bay appears on this year's countdown. In his second season playing primarily off the ball, linebacker Clay Matthews enjoyed another fine season for the Green Bay Packers. For his efforts, the NFL Network included him in their annual list of the top 100 players, ranking him number 57 overall. Matthews, an edge rusher by trade, moved to inside linebacker midway through 2014. The Packers kept him there throughout last season, with Matthews showing significant improvement as a run defender and cover linebacker. Still, he finished second on the team in sacks with 6...
