  • Packers' Corey Ballentine: Staying put in Green Bay

    The Packers re-signed Ballentine on Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Ballentine will return to Green Bay, where he spent time both on the active roster and practice squad this past year. Heading into the 2023 campaign, the 26-year-old could potentially find himself competing for a roster spot in what's become a crowded secondary. If he does make the team, the 2019 sixth-round pick will likely see most of his playing time on special teams, bringing value both in coverage and as a returner.

  • Packers' Rudy Ford: Re-signs with Green Bay

    Ford signed with the Packers on Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Ford will return to the Packers after recording 44 tackles (31 solo) and three interceptions for them last season. The 28-year-old is coming off the best season of his career and will now look for an opportunity to compete for the starting job. Alongside Tarvarius Moore, Ford is now the second safety the Packers have signed this offseason as they look to improve their depth in the secondary.

  • Packers' Tarvarius Moore: Agrees to terms with Green Bay

    Moore agreed to terms with the Packers on Friday. Moore will head to Green Bay after spending the first four seasons of his career with the 49ers. The 2018 third-round pick is coming off the worst season of his career in 2022, playing only 39 defensive snaps. It remains to be seen whether Moore will garner a starting job with the Packers, but if he fails to do so, he can still add value as a depth player and on special teams.

  • Vikings' Dean Lowry: Agrees to deal with Minnesota

    Minnesota and Lowry (calf) agreed to terms on a two-year, $8.5 million deal Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Lowry ended the 2022 campaign on injured reserve with a calf injury he suffered during the Packers' Christmas Day win over Miami. The 2016 fourth-round pick has 15.5 sacks across 80 career starts in seven seasons with Green Bay and should garner a solid role along Minnesota's defensive line in 2023.

  • Seahawks' Jarran Reed: Back in Seattle

    Reed agreed Tuesday with the Seahawks on a two-year deal, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports. Reed is returning to Seattle, where he played from 2016 through 2020. In his two years away from the Seahawks, he averaged 47.5 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Now five years removed from a 10.5-sack season, the best of his career, Reed should continue to post limited IDP production in his age-31 campaign.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Will return to Green Bay

    The Packers and Nixon (concussion) agreed Monday on a one-year deal with a max value of $6 million, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Nixon signed with the Packers in March of 2022 and reunited with special-teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia, who coached Nixon during his previous stint in Las Vegas. Nixon, an undrafted product out of South Carolina, periodically saw some work on defense with Green Bay, totaling 23 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble across 276 defensive snaps, but he made his mark as a return man after Amari Rodgers was waived in November. Nixon totaled 1,009 kick-return yards, 140 punt-return yards and one touchdown across 12 games as the primary return man en route to first-team All-Pro honors. Based on Rapoport's report, it sounds like Nixon's new deal is laced with incentives, so he'll have to build off his success from last year to earn the full $6 million. He suffered a concussion during the Packers' Week 18 loss to the Lions, but there's no reason to believe that issue will impact his availability for offseason workouts.

  • Packers' Kingsley Enagbare: Records three sacks as rookie

    Enagbare registered 31 tackles (18 solo), three sacks and three pass deflections over 17 games in the 2022 season. The fifth-rounder did not open the season in a key role, but his playing time picked up after fellow pass rusher Rashan Gary (knee) was lost for the season, and he played at least half the defensive snaps in all but one of his final eight appearances. Enagbare heads into 2023 behind both Gary and Preston Smith on the depth chart, but should Gary's absence extend into the regular season, Enagbare could again play an expanded role.

  • Packers' Rudy Ford: Fills regular role in 2022

    Ford recorded 44 tackles (31 solo), three interceptions and three pass deflections over 17 appearances during the 2022 season. Ford proved to be a good find for the Packers last offseason, as he appeared in every game the team played and even made a career-high six starts. He will be a free agent this offseason, so it remains to be seen which team he will suit up for moving forward.

  • Packers' Darnell Savage: Takes step back in 2022

    Savage stacked up 58 tackles (43 solo), an interception and five pass deflections over 16 games in the 2022 season. Savage appeared in all but one game in 2022, but he also fell out of favor late in the season and was credited with a start in just two of his final five appearances. When it was all said and done, he wound up playing a career-low 84 percent of the Packers' defensive snaps. He will presumably remain in Green Bay with the Packers having picked up the fifth-year option on his contract, but his role is uncertain heading into the 2023 campaign.

  • Packers' Rasul Douglas: Racks up four picks in 2022

    Douglas recorded a career-high 85 tackles (69 solo), four interceptions and 13 pass deflections over 17 appearances during the 2022 season. Douglas did not find the end zone in 2022 after doing so twice in the previous season, but he nearly matched the five interceptions he tallied that season and wound up with far more tackles than he made in any previous campaign. Expect the playmaker to again play a key role in the Packers' defensive backfield in 2023.

  • Packers' De'Vondre Campbell: Output slips in 2022

    Campbell tallied 96 tackles (56 solo), two interceptions, three pass deflections and a touchdown over 13 appearances during the 2022 season. Campbell was a steady presence in the middle of Green Bay's defense when he was out there, but with him playing three fewer games than the season before and fellow linebacker Quay Walker stepping into a key role in his rookie season, Campbell wound up with 50 fewer tackles than he made during the 2021 campaign. Campbell should remain a key contributor for the Packers after signing a multi-year deal last offseason, but don't count on him to make the same fantasy impact he did a couple years ago.

  • Packers' Adrian Amos: Makes 100 tackles for first time

    Amos registered a career-high 102 tackles (73 solo), a sack, an interception and five pass deflections over 17 appearances during the 2022 season. Amos' snap count declined slightly for a third straight year, but that did not prevent him from hitting the 100-tackle mark for the first time in his career. Amos has been an ironman since joining the Packers in 2019, but he will be a free agent this offseason, and it remains to be seen if he will be back in Green Bay.

  • Packers' Quay Walker: Tops 100 tackles as rookie

    Walker recorded 121 tackles (75 solo), 1.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and seven pass deflections over 17 appearances during the 2022 season. The Packers selected Walker in the first round of 2022 NFL Draft, and he made an instant impact, starting 16 games and easily leading his team in total stops. He will be a factor in leagues using IDPs in 2023 -- particularly those that value tackles.

  • Packers' Kenny Clark: Adjusts contract

    Clark had $13.835 million of his 2023 salary converted into a signing bonus Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Clark's willingness to adjust his contract will open up over $11 million in cap space for the Packers this offseason. The veteran defensive tackle completed another successful season in 2022, playing in all 17 contests and recording 53 tackles (27 solo), four sacks and one forced fumble.

  • Packers' Preston Smith: Adjusts contract

    Smith restructured his contract Saturday opening up close to $7 million in additional cap space for the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Packers also restructured the contract of star cornerback Jaire Alexander, both necessary moves for the team to reach cap compliance. Smith was thought to be a potential cap casualty back in the pre-2021 offseason, but since then the 29-year-old pass rusher has tallied 17.5 sacks over the past two seasons and has become one of the team's most consistent pass rushers.

  • Packers' Jaire Alexander: Restructures contract

    Alexander restructured his contract Saturday to create upward of $10 million in cap space for the Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Perhaps the only newsworthy item of the restructuring is the Packers did not add additional void years onto the end of the contract. The Pro Bowl cornerback signed a four-year extension back in May of last year and the veteran is expected to be one of the team's critical pieces whenever the post Aaron Rodgers era begins.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Evaluated for concussion in Week 18

    Nixon is being evaluated for a concussion Sunday against the Lions. Nixon took a big hit at the end of a fourth-quarter kickoff return in the season finale. The 25-year-old return man showed promise in 2022, scoring a kick return touchdown in Week 17 against the Vikings while adding numerous other lengthy returns.

  • Packers' De'Vondre Campbell: Makes eight stops vs. Vikings

    Campbell tallied eight tackles (five solo) in the Packers' Week 17 win against Minnesota. Campbell tied for the team lead in stops in the big win, finishing with his most tackles since Week 13 against Chicago. Campbell has 89 stops on the season, so he'll need a big game Week 18 against the Lions in order for him to reach a triple-digit tally for the third time in his career.

  • Packers' Adrian Amos: Picks up first interception

    Amos recorded eight tackles (seven solo) and an interception in the Packers' Week 17 win over Minnesota. Amos tied with two of his teammates for the team lead in tackles in the contest, and he intercepted a Kirk Cousins pass intended for Justin Jefferson in the second quarter. Amos returned that pick 26 yards, helping to set up a Green Bay touchdown. The interception was Amos' first of the season, giving him six straight campaigns with at least one pick.

  • Packers' Keisean Nixon: Ready to roll Sunday

    Nixon (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Mike Spofford of the team's official site reports. Nixon, who departed last weekend's matchup versus Miami due to a groin injury, is now in line to play and operate as Green Bay's kick and punt returner New Year's Day against Minnesota. The 25-year-old has thus far provided the Packers with a spark on special teams this year, something the team has lacked the past few seasons.
