Another recently-released veteran signs with Green Bay

2017 NFL season preview Packers still class of NFC North

2017 NFL season preview Packers still class of NFC North

Green Bay will try to extend that win streak to eight games this Sunday against the Seahawks. If Green Bay has an offensive question mark it is on the offensive line where the Packers left T.J. Lang go into free agency (he nearly signed with Seattle before deciding on Detroit). He was also asked about the rummage sale king of ex-players and said Lacy was great for us and it will be interesting to compete against him at Lambeau on Sunday.

"It's a good fit for me", Brooks said.

Brooks is the latest free-agent addition for the traditionally draft-and-develop Packers. Right now, I just have to make sure I'm healthy.

The Saints open the 2017 season on September 11 against the Minnesota Vikings on the first Monday Night Football broadcast of the regular season. The passing game is relying on Sam Bradford to actually be better than his decidedly average self and rolling the dice on Minnesota native Michael Floyd as a viable replacement for Cordarelle Patterson looks like a reckless gamble at best. He's known best for his ability to stop the run. "He's got a good light about him today, he's ready to go, and we'll put these days together and with the thought that he's going to be able to play and go and be an (integral) part of what happens on game day".

That luck runs out in 2017.

No gay player has ever come out while playing in the NFL.

The Packers are rewarding offensive lineman Lane Taylor for his solid play.

The victor of this matchup will put itself in position to win a tiebreaker for home-field advantage if both teams end up with the same record at the end of the regular season. Another rookie from this year's draft class, linebacker Vince Biegel (fourth round), was placed on the physically unable to perform list after he missed training camp with a foot injury.

I don't see what John Fox is seeing. It's early to start thinking about playoff seeding before the season has even begun, but it's safe to say that the result of this game could have a major impact on the final standings in the NFC.

"Well, I don't think they start with a 38-point lead in the next game so I don't think it's worth much", said Sherman with a smile.

Regardless of who's under center, there's precious little to be excited about on offense.

The Green Bay Packers got within one game of the Super Bowl last season and should once again be a championship contender and the class of the NFC North. He had been scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in 2017.
