Davante Adams of the Green Bay Packers

Unfortunately, the Green Bay Packers’ 2021 season came to an unceremonious end at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers last Saturday. The urge to bury one’s head in the sand until next season is strong. It’s honestly hard to argue against that strategy. Still, the Packers’ 2021 year was a spectacular ride while it lasted and it is important to give credit to the players who helped make it happen. Davante Adams was a big contributor in a terrific season for Green Bay, but there is quite a bit of uncertainty regarding the receiver’s future with the Packers. However,…

The Green Bay Packers are set to face the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night (1/22) in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.

NFL teams have until Saturday, January 8th at 3pm CST to restructure or extend a contract using the 2021 salary cap. The Green Bay Packers have around $3.1 million in cap space to work with in order to get a deal done. There are two strong candidates for contract extensions on the Packers’ roster right now: De’Vondre Campbell and Rasul Douglas. Both players have been key additions to a defense that has exceeded expectations this season. With only $3.1 million worth of wiggle room though, it is unlikely that both can be extended if the Packers decide to make a…

Sibling rivalries are always interesting matchups. Equanimeous St. Brown and Amon-Ra St. Brown do bring uniqueness to their rivalry, however. Both brothers play in the NFC North. Equanimeous, the oldest of three, plays for the Packers. Amon-Ra, the youngest of the three, plays for the Detroit Lions. With one more game left to play in the regular season, the rivalry between Equanimeous (EQ) and Amon-Ra St. Brown already appears to be a heavily one-sided affair. As the two receivers head into their week 18 showdown at Ford Field, the St. Brown brothers’ careers seem to be headed in opposite directions.…
