Coming Up
  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

Jennings on contract situation: ‘It is what it is’

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 5, 2012 – 5:00 pm

WR Greg Jennings spoke to reporters at his locker on Wednesday about entering the final year of his current contract without a new deal. Jennings told other media outlets in recent days that it’s possible this could be his last season in Green Bay.

“It is what it is,” he said. “My focus is the 49ers and this year and putting myself in position to make plays for our organization, for this team and for the guys I’m lining up with. That’s my mindset. Bottom line, it’s always my mindset when I’m playing the game. I’m not worried about whether I’m going to end up here or whether I’m getting a contract done. That will take care of itself.

“If I’m here, I would love to be here. If I’m not, it is what it is. At the end of the day, I’m going to play football, I’m going to play 100 percent every single snap. This is my locker. I want this to be my locker until I hang my cleats up.”

He vowed not to let his contract status distract him or the team.

“It’s not a distraction,” he said. “I’m not going to allow it to be a distraction. I’ve never allowed my individual off-the-field deals that I need to take care of become a distraction to myself, let alone the team. I’m glad you guys are asking it right now, so we can kill it, because it’s a non-issue. It’s one of those deals where I can’t control the situation. I have an agent, he’s working diligently on that. He knows my stance on it, I don’t want to be involved in that.

“Do I want to be here? Absolutely. Everyone upstairs knows that, the guys around me know that, but at the end of the day, the focus has to be football.”

Packers appear to be getting healthier

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 5, 2012 – 12:27 pm

Wednesday’s practice was not in pads, but based on the players who participated in the portion of the workout open to the media, it appears the Packers are getting healthier on the injury front.

Defensive linemen B.J. Raji and Ryan Pickett were both practicing, as was inside linebacker Robert Francois. All three of them have been battling injuries stemming from the last two preseason contests.

Also, CB Davon House and LB Jamari Lattimore were doing some drills, but they weren’t as active in practice as the others. That could mean they’re close to returning but not enough to be active for a game yet. S Sean Richardson and RB James Starks continued to sit out.

The first injury report of the week will be released after practice, when Mike McCarthy addresses the media around 1:40 p.m. CT.
