Packers do not use franchise tag

Posted by Mike Spofford on March 2, 2015 – 3:43 pm

Dallas WR Dez BryantGREEN BAY — The deadline for using the franchise or transition tag on a pending free agent expired Monday afternoon, and the Packers did not tag any of their players.

According to media reports, five players received the franchise tag around the league. They are Dallas WR Dez Bryant, Denver WR Demaryius Thomas, Kansas City LB Justin Houston, N.Y. Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul, and New England K Stephen Gostkowski. Miami reportedly used its transition tag on TE Charles Clay.

The Packers have used the franchise tag only five times since its inception, and not since 2010. Here’s the list of Packers players who were franchised:

RB Dorsey Levens, 1998

WR Antonio Freeman, 1999

T Chad Clifton, 2004

DT Corey Williams, 2008

DE Ryan Pickett, 2010

McKinney, Perryman offer long and short at ILB

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 21, 2015 – 8:24 am

Benardrick-McKinney-300INDIANAPOLIS–As inside linebackers go, Benardrick McKinney (left) and Denzel Perryman (below) are the long and short of the position.

McKinney and Perryman are two of the top prospects at inside linebacker in this year’s draft. The Packers, of course, are thought to be in the market for an inside linebacker.

“Yeah, I have an advantage of my height and making the quarterback make difficult throws
over the top of me, so I definitely have an advantage,” McKinney told reporters at the scouting combine. McKinney is 6-5, 245.

“I’ve been pretty much getting knocked for my height since I got to high school, getting recruited,” Perryman said. “My play makes up for my height. I don’t play like I’m 5-11.”

Denzel-Perryman-300The Packers released veteran inside linebacker Brad Jones on Friday, a move that would seem to invite a draft pick at the position. Height aside, McKinney and Perryman have similar traits: They’re tough and productive.

“First of all, you have to be tough. You’ve got to be a vocal leader because you have to set the fronts, get everybody lined up. You’ve got to be smart, you’ve got to know the game, you’ve got to know your opponent, you’ve got to figure out formations, figure out what the offense is going to do to you. You’ve got to be smart and you’ve got to be really tough,” McKinney said.

He wants to be the first inside linebacker selected.

“It’s very, very important. I have high expectations for myself. It’s been a dream since I was young to be the best at what I do, to be the best linebacker in the country,” he said.

“Just look at the tape. Say my name and you’re going to get a physical, hard-nosed downhill dog,” Perryman said.

Nebraska’s Abdullah could be steal in second round

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 20, 2015 – 11:50 am

ameer-Abdullah-300INDIANAPOLIS–Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah is one of the most complete backs in a draft class deep at the position, but Abdullah’s smallish 5-9, 195 could make him a steal for a team in the second round.

Abdullah entertained the media on Friday with an impressive interview, just as he impressed scouts with a standout performance at the Senior Bowl a few weeks ago. He’s expected to run in the 4.3 range at the combine, and he’s an accomplished receiver out of the backfield that excels in blitz pickup. You name it, he does it.

“I haven’t maximized my full potential, yet. There’s so much for me to learn. I haven’t competed on the professional level, yet, so I’m in a developmental stage,” said Abdullah, who’s also considered to be one of the top character players in this draft.

Abdullah models his game after former Bucs great Warrick Dunn, as similarly smallish running back who was paired with Mike Alstott in a two-back attack. Might Abdullah be headed for that same kind of role?

Vic Beasley adds 10 pounds for scouting combine

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 20, 2015 – 10:48 am

beasley-blog-300INDIANAPOLIS–Clemson’s Vic Beasley is one of the premier pass rushers in this draft, and where he’s selected will be determined to a large degree by his workout on Sunday.

“Teams want to see me drop into coverage,” Beasley said.

Beasley measured at 6-3, 246 at the combine. He intentionally put on 10 pounds for the combine and that’ll be a positive if Beasley runs as he expects to run, 4.6 or 4.7.

He’s largely considered to be a prospect to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. At Clemson, Beasley was a defensive end.

“That’s what I look forward to playing at the next level. The majority of teams see me as an outside linebacker,” Beasley said.

Harbaugh questions continue to hound Forty Niners

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 19, 2015 – 11:22 am

150219-Trent-Baalke-300INDIANAPOLIS–Forty Niners General Manager Trent Baalke faced a cross-examination of sorts when he spoke to the media at the scounting combine.

Jim Harbaugh said last week that it was not a mutual decision for him to leave the 49ers. How would you respond?

“I have no response to that. Jim’s moved on. We’ve moved on. He’s got a heck-of-a job. We’ve got a new head football coach. We’re trying to get ready for the draft, free agency and the offseason program.”

How concerned are you about losing a coach that took you to the NFC Championship three times and the Super Bowl once?

“Jim did a heck of a job. He’s a heck of a coach. I think, once again, he’s gone his direction, we’ve gone ours. I feel very good about the direction we’re headed and I’m sure he does as well.”

So, based on his suggestion, the front office hierarchy forced him out of the organization. Why would they do that?

“Once again, he’s moved on, we’ve moved on and I think the important thing for us now is just to look forward, and that’s what we’re trying to do. We’ve got three important things happening here coming up and I know that’s where my focus is.”

Green-Beckham seeking forgiveness at combine

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on February 19, 2015 – 10:57 am

150219-sooners-blog-300INDIANAPOLIS–Wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham is one of the two big risk-reward players in this year’s NFL draft, the other one being quarterback Jameis Winston. Green-Beckham has been projected as high as a top-five pick, should he perform well at the scouting combine and convince teams he’s left his off-field troubles in the past.

“All the decisions I made, I wish I could take it back,” he told reporters during a media session at the combine that could only be described as an appeal for forgiveness.

At 6-6,. 225, he’s been compared to Calvin Johnson, but Green-Beckham was involved in several incidents at Missouri, including an alleged burglary. He transferred to Oklahoma but didn’t play in 2014; his talent, however, makes him a potential high pick in this year’s draft.

“I know what’s at stake. I know what kind of person I am. I feel like these mistakes have put me back. It’s tough for me to stand up and speak to you guys,” he said, nervously.

His past will no doubt unnerve teams, but he might be too much of a talent to pass up.
