Colin Kaepernick is urging NFL teams to give him a tryout.  He believes his talent will be so apparent on the field, coaches and GMs will want to sign him afterward. Kaepernick, 34, made the claim following another one of his publicized workouts on March 23rd, 2022: “We just want the opportunity to walk in the door and show them what I can do, I think my talent, my skill set will speak for itself.” https://twitter.com/NikoTamurian/status/1506734925264809984?s=20&t=zqn-_SMDtBk32F7482o2Ww Colin has now worked out in multiple different cities with multiple different current and former NFL players.  Today he was up in Seattle: https://twitter.com/MikeDugar/status/1506738560551903232?s=20&t=uIHl9jvBaUw1edvSg3yVUA…

Green Bay finds themselves squarely in the market for a #1 wide receiver, and from the sounds of it they have been doing some shopping.  Green Bay has apparently reached out about Seattle wide receiver D.K. Metcalf, and the Seahawks are listening: https://twitter.com/jacksettleman/status/1506755466860236806?s=20&t=nd9fKM8-CQaIm2K-XVz-Mw DK Metcalf is set to be a free agent after the 2022 season.  Metcalf is 24 years old and has (at least) 5 years left of playing at an extremely high caliber.  If I am Green Bay I am continuing to call to debate Seattle’s asking price.  No doubt it will be around what Green Bay received…

The Packers have had a lot of success in their previous two drafts where they picked two players in the first round.  After their trading Davante Adams, they are sitting with the 22nd and 28th pick in the 2022 NFL draft. Packers’ 2009 NFL Draft: Round 1, Pick #9: B.J. Raji: B.J. Raji was worked into defensive coordinator Dom Capers’ brand new 3-4 scheme during the start of the Packers 2009 season.  He was unfortunately hampered by an ankle injury most of the 2009 season.  However 2010 was a different story.  Raji earned the starting position at the sole defensive…

A wild off-season may be getting even wilder. According to Tom Pelissero, the Kansas City Chiefs have been shopping Tyreek Hill. https://twitter.com/tompelissero/status/1506648617016299520?s=21 It would figure to be a massive haul for Tyreek Hill if they did end up moving on from him.  However the Chiefs may have a replacement in mind: https://twitter.com/tompelissero/status/1506649089605353475?s=21 It appears there are multiple teams who are already in trade talks with the Chiefs: https://twitter.com/adamschefter/status/1506650156623704064?s=21 Would Tyreek Hill work in Green Bay?  While it is highly unlikely that Green Bay pays the asking price for Hill, he would immediately provide an explosive weapon for Rodgers.  Reportedly contract…

The Seattle Seahawks selected Jarran Reed in the second round of the 2016 draft. After 5 seasons with Seattle, he spent 2021 with the Chiefs. Today, he becomes a member of the Green Bay Packers. https://twitter.com/byryanwood/status/1506369807087808513?s=21 Via Peter Bukowski on Twitter: “In 2018, Jarran Reed had 10.5 sacks for the Seahawks and 6.5 for them in 2020.  Reed had 12 QB hits for the Chiefs last year, just 1 fewer than Kenny Clark.

Rasul Douglas is back in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The free-agent CB signed a three-year, $21 million deal to remain with the Packers.  This solidifies Green Bay’s top three corner backs for the 2022 season.  Once Jaire Alexander is re-signed it will be the top three corner backs for the foreseeable future.  Even with Darnell Savage’s rough 2021 season, Adrian Amos continues to be one of the best safeties  in the NFL.

Edge rusher Za’Darius Smith had a deal with the Baltimore Ravens… until he didn’t. Smith verbally agreed to a four-year, $35 million contract with Baltimore before backing out.  Today he visited the other purple team, Minnesota.  And it appears he will be signing a contract: https://twitter.com/zadariussmith/status/1506041152964907010?s=20&t=Y-pYvyJAPdD8MbY6m21JnA Purple People Eaters were the defensive line of the Minnesota Vikings from the late 1960s to the late 1970s. The term is a reference to a popular song from 1958, the efficiency of the defense, and the color of their uniforms. The motto of the Purple People Eaters was “Meet at the quarterback.” Za’Darius Smith…
