On Now
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.

Packers make South Florida LB final pick

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 27, 2013 – 5:41 pm

GREEN BAY — With their 11th and final pick in the 2013 draft, the Packers selected LB Sam Barrington from South Florida. He’s the third of three seventh-round selections, the 232nd overall pick.

A second-team All-Big East pick last year, Barrington (6-1, 235) had 3 1/2 sacks and two forced fumbles in 2012. He’s listed as an inside linebacker and started his last three seasons in college. He had six sacks among 13 tackles for loss over his final two years and was invited to the East-West Shrine Game.

Dorsey, 6-2, 210, caught 45 passes for 573 yards and three touchdowns in 2011, then fell off to 18 catches for 311 yards and four touchdowns last fall.

Packers make Josh Boyd fourth DL picked in last two years

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 27, 2013 – 2:38 pm

GREEN BAY–The Packers stayed with the big-guy theme, selecting Mississippi State defensive lineman Josh Boyd at the bottom of round five (167).

Boyd, 6-3, 310, started 41 of 51 games for the Bulldogs of the rugged SEC, where he was a penetrate-and-disrupt, three-technique tackle. He’ll attempt to fit into the Packers’ 3-4 scheme.

The selection of Boyd is the Packers’ fourth selection of a defensive lineman in the last two drafts.

Packers add Iowa CB Micah Hyde in fifth round

Posted by Mike Spofford on April 27, 2013 – 2:13 pm

With the first of two fifth-round picks, the Packers selected Iowa CB Micah Hyde on Saturday. Hyde, listed at 6-1, 197, was the 159th overall selection in the draft.

A first-team All-Big Ten pick last season by both the league’s coaches and media, Hyde started 38 games over his final three seasons and recorded eight interceptions. He also forced four fumbles and recovered three in his career. The three recoveries were all last season, and he returned one for a touchdown. He returned two INTs for TDs as a sophomore in 2010, with returns of 72 and 66 yards.

Hyde was named the winner of the Big Ten’s Tatum-Woodson defensive back of the year last season and was named co-MVP on his team. He participated in the East-West Shrine Game following his final season at Iowa. He broke up 14 passes last year. He also played some safety as a junior in 2011.

The Packers have now selected a cornerback in each of the last three drafts, having taken Davon House in the fourth round in 2011 and Casey Hayward in the second round last year.

Packers trade up to add UCLA’s Franklin to backfield

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on April 27, 2013 – 12:34 pm

GREEN BAY–Competition in the Packers backfield increased significantly when the team selected UCLA running back Johnathan Franklin following a trade up into the fourth round with the Denver Broncos.

Franklin, 5-10, 201, was thought to be one of the fast-rising players in the draft, but mysteriously lasted into the fourth round. He was a late-season hit last year and followed that up with a strong performance at the Senior Bowl.

“A hungry, downhill, one-cut runner with the competitive zeal, football character and toughness to contribute immediately,” a draft publication said of Franklin.
The Packers selected Alabama running back Eddie Lacy in the second round.

Denver got the Packers’ fifth (146) and sixth-round (173) picks.
