Packers Bring Back Return Specialist Tyler Ervin

The Packers agreed to re-sign Tyler Ervin, their return specialist and a burgeoning threat on offense as a running back, to a one-year deal worth $1.047 million, a source confirmed to Ryan Wood of PackersNews.

The contract includes a $137,500 signing bonus. ESPN was first to report Ervin would re-sign with the Packers.

Ervin didn’t join the Packers until early December. At the time, the Packers had minus-8 punt-return yards on the season. They were in serious jeopardy of becoming the first team in NFL history with negative yards returning punts for an entire season.

In four games, Ervin gained 106 punt-return yards.

Ervin started the 2019 season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he played six games. With a full offseason to learn LaFleur’s system, it’s possible his role on offense can increase. But the Packers certainly appreciated the injection of production Ervin gave as a return specialist, a role he’ll retain in 2020.

Packers to Release Tight End Jimmy Graham

The Packers are going in another direction at the tight end spot, as Adam Schefter of ESPN tweeted out that the team is releasing Jimmy Graham.

Last season Graham had 38 grabs for 447 yards with three touchdowns. The 33-year-old played two seasons with the Packers, starting 22 of 32 games with the Pack.

In those two seasons he had 93 catches for 1083 yards with five scores. He was due to make $8 million this upcoming season.

What’s the Status of the Packers Receiving Core as Free Agency Closes In? has a new article out discussing how things look to be shaping up with free agency ready to start very soon, and how teams wide receiver cores are looking going into the process.

The Packers have a chance to improve their wide out situation in free agency, the question is if they will do it.

You can read the entire article HERE – for now here’s what the piece says about the Packers receiver situation.

Top three WRs in 2019: Davante Adams (83-997-5), Allen Lazard (35-477-3 — exclusive rights free agent), Marquez Valdes-Scantling (26-452-2).

Last season, the Packers’ offense threw passes behind the line of scrimmage at the third-highest rate in the NFL (26.2%), which is why their second- and third-ranked pass-catchers in terms of total catches were both running backs (Aaron Jones caught 49 passes for 474 yards and three scores; Jamaal Williams had 39 catches for 253 yards and five scores). Adams led the team with 83 receptions in just 12 games, but no other Green Bay receiver had more than 35 receptions in 2019. Since last year’s offseason was heavily focused on defense, it’s probable that this offseason will be spent reinforcing the offense, especially with regard to finding a complement for Adams.

Should the Packers Go After a High Profile Free Agent WR This Offseason?

There are several high profile wide receivers scheduled to be free agents this coming March. Should the Packers dip their toe in the free agent market or wait for the draft?

Packers Cornerback Davon House Announces Retirement

Packers cornerback Davon House has announced his retirement according to

The news does not come as a complete surprise as House missed all but three games in 2018 with a shoulder injury and did not play at all in 2019. But the 30-year-old wanted to retire as a member of the Packers and informed the front office on Tuesday morning.

Originally selected by the Packers in the fourth round of the 2011 draft out of New Mexico State, House played in 58 games (including three postseason contests) and registered 123 tackles, three interceptions, and three sacks over six seasons with the Packers. He also made 19 starts for the Jaguars in 2015-16 before returning to Green Bay in 2016. House was an excellent cover corner who was trusted to shadow the likes of Mike Evans and Josh Gordon before the injuries took their toll.

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst Says the Team Expects TE Jimmy Graham Back in 2020

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst said Friday it is his “understanding” that veteran tight end Jimmy Graham wants to continue playing in 2020 according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.

Gutekunst stopped short of saying the 33-year-old will be back with the Packers, though he does have one year remaining on his current deal.

Graham has not been a difference-maker in his two years in Green Bay, catching only 38 passes for 447 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games in 2019. Cutting Graham, who is due an $8 million base salary in 2020, would put Green Bay on the hook for $3.36 million in dead money.

Who Will the Packers Play in the NFC Divisional Round in Two Weeks?

Sunday was not easy for the Packers in Ford Field against the rival Detroit Lions, as Green Bay had to rally from a 14-point halftime deficit, but finally late in the the game were able to go 68 yards in eight plays to line up veteran kicker Mason Crosby for a 33-yard field goal on the games final play.

If you have been taking in Apuestas de futbol online you know that the Packers enter the offseason as one of the favorites in the NFC, as they won 13 of 16 games, 6 of 8 games on the road, and after a restful bye week they get a chance to sit at home and play the highest seed in the NFC remaining after Wild Card weekend.

Here’s the potentials for the Packers as they get set for a few days off before they prepare for a hopeful run to be playing in Super Bowl LIV on February 2nd in Miami.

1. Packers vs New Orleans Saints

The Saints will have to get past the very good Minnesota Vikings this weekend in a wild card game at home, but if they do they would be a stout matchup for the Packers.

Drew Brees and the Saints offense is very good, and it will be a good matchup for the Packers defense, who have answered the call all season.

The Saints likely would want this game to be a shootout, while the Pack would prefer a 17-14 game to keep Brees, Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara in check.

2. Packers vs Philadelphia Eagles

It took the Eagles to week 17 to finally clinch the very mediocre NFC East, a division that will have likely three teams looking for new coaches after the Cowboys can Jason Garrett.

The Eagles can’t be counted out, as there are still a lot of players on this team that won the Super Bowl just two seasons ago.

Philadelphia comes into the playoffs hot having won their last four games after starting 5-7, and can’t be overlooked as an easy team for the Packers in the Divisional round.

3. Packers vs Seattle Seahawks

The only way this game can happen is if the Vikings stun the Saints in New Orleans and the Hawks top the Eagles in Philadelphia.

Seattle does have one thing going for them, that is the fact they won 7 of 8 road games this season, going just 4-4 at home.

Russell Wilson is an MVP candidate, and while they are banged up at the running back spot, they have a good defense that could give the Pack some problems.

The fact that the game is in Green Bay won’t intimidate the Hawks in the least.
