 Latest Packers Player Notes
Apr 20 2018 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers is now part owner of an NBA team, the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks announced Friday during its playoff game against the Boston Celtics that Rodgers joined the ownership group of the Bucks as a limited partner. Rodgers was in attendance for Friday's game and was seated between Bucks owner Wes Edens and professional race driver and girlfriend Danica Patrick. "I have proudly called Wisconsin my home for the past 13 years, and I am thankful for the friendships and the opportunities I have been given to live and play here," Rodgers said in a statement released by the Bucks. "I am excited and honored to deepen my connection to the region by joining Wes Edens, Marc Lasry, Jamie Finan, Mike Fascitelli and the ownership group of the Milwaukee Bucks. "As a huge fan of the NBA and the sport of basketball, this is a dream come true for me, and I look forward to furthering my affinity for Wisconsin sports as a minority owner in a team I love and support." Rodgers is the only active NFL player to be a limited partner of an NBA team.


Apr 17 2018 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers has grown frustrated with the organization over a lack of communication following a pair of offseason personnel moves, according to a published report. Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reported that Rodgers was not in favor of the team replacing quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt and releasing wide receiver Jordy Nelson. "Both of those decisions were made without him," an unnamed source close to Rodgers told Robinson. "In both situations, he had no influence with (the front office) before anything went down." Rodgers' frustrations were then linked to his lingering contract situation, per the report.


Apr 12 2018 - Davon House
  CB Davon House has agreed to sign a one-year deal to remain with the Green Bay Packers, multiple media outlets reported. The contract is contingent on House passing a physical. Green Bay selected House in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, and he played for the Packers from 2011 through 2014. He spent the next two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and returned to Green Bay for the 2017 season and started all 12 games in which he played.


Apr 10 2018 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers shared a moment with the Dalai Lama during the Green Bay Packers quarterback's recent trip to India with girlfriend and race car driver Danica Patrick. A photo posted on the spiritual leader of the Tibet's Instagram page early Tuesday showed the Dalai Lama wearing a Packers' hat and holding a football. Rodgers presented the items as gifts to the Dalai Lama.


Apr 9 2018 - Trevor Davis
  WR Trevor Davis made an apparent joke that quickly escalated into a serious matter at Los Angeles International Airport. Multiple media outlets reported that Davis was arrested on a misdemeanor count of making criminal threats at the airport on Sunday. TMZ Sports reported that Davis was asked routine security-related questions about the contents of his checked luggage at a Hawaiian Airlines ticket counter. At that point, Davis allegedly turned to his female traveling companion and asked, "Did you remember to pack the explosives?" The apparent attempt at humor wasn't appreciated by security, as the 24-year-old Davis was taken into custody by LAX police before being released from jail after posting $15,000 bond. The woman with Davis was not arrested, LAX police confirmed to ESPN.


Mar 24 2018 - Tramon Williams
  CB Tramon Williams is set to begin his second stint with the Green Bay Packers. Williams, who played his first eight seasons in Green Bay, officially signed a contract with the team. The Packers did not divulge the terms of the deal, but NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that it was a two-year contract worth approximately $10 million. The 35-year-old Williams spent last season with the Arizona Cardinals, starting nine of 13 games while playing opposite Pro Bowl cornerback Patrick Peterson. Williams had two interceptions and 12 passes defensed.

Mar 8 2018 - Demetri Goodson
  CB Demetri Goodson, who was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next week, had his contract tolled by the Packers, according to a report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Thursday. A player's contract is tolled if he remains on the physically unable to perform list past the sixth regular-season game of the season during the final year of his deal. In essence, it extends another year onto a player's contract. He started the 2017 season on the PUP list and eventually was activated off it in December. However, the former sixth-round draft pick never made it to the field, hurting his hamstring and winding up on injured reserve.


Mar 1 2018 - Aaron Jones
  RB back Aaron Jones pleaded no contest to a marijuana-related charge stemming from an incident in Green Bay in October. Jones had two charges against him dropped after agreeing to the no-contest plea of driving with a controlled substance in his system, USA Today reported. Charges of speeding and operating without a license were dismissed, although Jones had his license suspended for six months, was fined $1,047 and ordered to undergo an alcohol assessment, according to court records. The 23-year-old Jones is still subject to possible discipline by the NFL.


Feb 28 2018 - Ty Montgomery
  WR Ty Montgomery, who played primarily wide receiver in 2015 and 2016 before moving to running back last year, could play both positions in 2018. "Ty is a very, very versatile player," Gutekunst said. "He can do a lot of things. I think having a guy like that (means) we can kind of plug him in where we need him


Feb 28 2018 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are negotiating a new contract. Rodgers has two years left on the five-year, $110 million extension he signed in 2013. He is the sixth-highest paid quarterback in the NFL. Green Bay would like to make Rodgers the highest paid quarterback in the game.


Feb 28 2018 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers is seeing progress made toward a new contract extension, team president Mark Murphy said. Murphy noted that new general manager Brian Gutekunst and executive vice president/director of football operations Russ Ball are also in on the process involving Rodgers, who has two years left on a five-year, $110 million extension he signed in 2013. "We've had discussions with his representative," Murphy told ESPN on Tuesday. "I have a lot of confidence in Brian and Russ and Aaron as well. We want to create a win-win."


Feb 1 2018 - Aaron Rodgers
  QB Aaron Rodgers didn't sound too happy that the Green Bay Packers opted against retaining quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. Rodgers said some of the Packers' offseason coaching changes were "a little strange" when he appeared on ESPN Radio's Golic & Wingo on Thursday. "Well my quarterback coach didn't get retained," the 34-year-old Rodgers said. "I thought that was an interesting change, really without consulting me. There's a close connection between quarterback and quarterback coach, and that was an interesting decision."


Jan 15 2018 - Damarious Randall
  CB Damarious Randall, who led the Green Bay Packers with four interceptions, underwent hand surgery Monday. Multiple media outlets reported the 2015 first-round pick was undergoing surgery in New York and he confirmed it by tweeting: "Truly amazing how doctors and whoever else help created this medicine. #YouTheRealMVP" According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Randall's surgery was to repair a small bone that had been bothering him throughout the season. His recovery time is estimated to be six to eight weeks.


Jan 9 2018 - Clay Matthews
  LB Clay Matthews had minor knee surgery last week, ESPN.com reported. The surgery was described as a "cleanup" procedure, so Matthews should be ready for any offseason work. Matthews played in 14 games this past season and recorded 7.5 sacks. The two games he missed were for a groin injury and a hamstring injury -- not a knee problem.


Jan 2 2018 - Davante Adams
  WR Davante Adams would like to see additional measures taken by the league to eliminate the brutal collisions that left him concussed on two occasions this season. "You have to do something about it," Adams said Tuesday, per ESPN. "I feel like what they're doing in college, they review it or whatever. Having it in place would definitely help. But we'll see how they take care of it."
