Cheese curds Blake Martinez Jersey , 7/27: Aaron Rodgers’ contract status remains the talk of Packers training camp At least publicly, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers continue to express optimism that the two sides will reach an agreement that will keep the quarterback with the franchise for the rest of his career. However, until that deal surfaces, the local and national media will continue to ask why Rodgers and the Packers haven’t signed an extension yet.On Thursday, Rodgers fielded more questions about his contract status, and he continued to toe the party line.Packers QB Aaron Rodgers not focusing on new deal as camp opens | ESPN“I think [the Packers] talked about it enough that there’s an expectation something would have been done,” Rodgers said Thursday to the assembled media. “Obviously judging by the questions here there’s kind of an expectation before we started. But I’m just trusting [agent] Dave [Dunn].”While other NFL superstars have withheld their services in order to spur negotiations -- Aaron Donald, Khalil Mack, and, until just a few days ago, Julio Jones -- Rodgers has participated in all the usual parts of the Packers’ offseason for a veteran player. At least for 2018, it doesn’t appear that Rodgers will take a similar approach.Davante Adams sees huge potential in Packers CB Kevin King | Packers WireKevin King spent most of his rookie season dealing with a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery, but he reported to training camp healthy and ready to compete for a starting role in new defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’s defense. Thus far, King has picked off Rodgers and earned the praise of No. 1 wideout Davante Adams, who said of the second-year corner: “I think he has the potential to be one of the best DBs in this league.”Packers hoping JK Scott can help make special teams units great | ForbesBy punter standards, the Packers made a large investment in rookie JK Scott. Not only did they select the Alabama product in the fifth round of this past April’s draft, but they also cut Justin Vogel, the second-year punter who set a franchise record for net average. If Scott can improve on Vogel’s strong performance -- and perhaps take over kickoff duty -- Green Bay can better justify the cost to acquire him.Guard Lane Taylor still nursing ankle injury | Sheboygan PressLane Taylor says the Packers just want to take a cautious approach with his ankle given the amount of time before Week 1. Still, anytime a starting offensive lineman misses time, the team has reason for at least some concern. Lucas Patrick took the first-team reps in Taylor’s place, a signal that perhaps he could also get a look for the job at right guard where Justin McCray has the early lead.Packers 2018 roster prediction: Cornerback room gets 6 players Cheap Randall Cobb Jersey , including 2 new faces Welcome to the prediction section of the offseason. Over two weeks, Acme Packing Company will present our overall roster predictions for the Green Bay Packers’ season-opening 53-man roster. Today, we continue with the Packers’ cornerbacks.Last season, the Packers defense allowed a passer rating of 102, which was 31st overall in the entire league. It was heartbreaking to watch. The only team who ranked worse was Cleveland Browns, and that was by a very slim margin (102.2). The Packers were also sixth-worst in 20+ yards passes allowed (55), third in completion percentage allowed (67.8%), and third in yards per completion allowed (7.9).Now, those terrible, horrible, no good, very bad defensive passing stats aren’t solely the secondary’s fault. A lack of a consistent pass rush and a poor defensive scheme didn’t help. This is a new season with new potential for the Packers and their cornerbacks. Mike Pettine was brought in to coach up the defense, new rookie corners were drafted, and a familiar face was brought back to add a veteran presence. The APC staff made a prediction for six corners to make the final 53-man roster. We’re expected to see a lot of nickel formations so keeping a healthy number of corners on the roster is essential. Starters: Kevin King, Tramon Williams, Jaire AlexanderBefore injuries sidelined Kevin King, there were signs of him becoming a legitimate WR1 cover-man — most notably early last season when he matched up against Julio Jones and was trusted to defend A.J. Green. King is a 6’3,” athletic corner who’s not afraid to stick his nose in on run support. Despite being sidelined with a shoulder injury, hopefully he’s still absorbed enough to make a second-year leap.The aforementioned familiar face coming back to Green Bay is Tramon Williams. At age 35, Williams is coming back to Green Bay as a veteran presence after spending the past three seasons split between Cleveland and Arizona. During his eight years with the Pack, Williams collected 28 interceptions and was a vital cog to the pass defense that helped produce a Super Bowl. Pettine is already gushing about how valuable Williams is to the cornerback room:Rookie Jaire Alexander will be the third starting corner according to the APC staff predictions. Taking a position in the slot will be a good role for the young corner considering his size (5’10 ,” 196 lbs.) and his speed to keep up with shifty slot wide outs. While there were instances at Louisville where Alexander would get beat, a more disciplined approach will allow him to display his great ball skills more frequently. This will be a departure from last year’s combo of Damarious Randall (717 snaps), Davon House (659 snaps) and Josh Hawkins (403 snaps) getting the lion’s share of the cornerback snaps for the Packer D. Actually writing that out makes me feel like it can only get better.Reserves: Josh Jackson, Lenzy Pipkins, and Davon HouseJosh Jackson was the second rookie the Packers drafted following Alexander. In several mock drafts leading up to the draft, several had Jackson going in the first-round to the Packers at the 14th pick. Jackson has the size and nose for takeaways to develop into another boundary corner that could eventually take over for Williams. During his last season at Iowa, Jackson grabbed eight interceptions and displayed big play potential. Jackson didn’t run well at the Combine, but apparently showed 4.4 speed at the Hawkeyes’ Pro Day. It’ll be exciting to see if Jackson can move into the starting lineup if he starts the season as a reserve. Full disclosure, Lenzy Pipkins is an APC favorite. An undrafted free agent, Pipkins only started one game in Week 17, but his willingness to tackle during his limited playing time was endearing to fans who were looking for some life out of the injury-ravaged secondary. Pipkins can play inside and out, so that versatility should help his chances to make the final 53.Davon House is another corner who left northeast Wisconsin and eventually came back home. He spent 2015 and 2016 in Jacksonville before coming back to Green Bay last season on a one-year deal. The Packers decided to lock House back into another one-year deal this season prior to drafting two rookie corners. House was on the field for 12 games last season and managed to defend 6 passes during that time. Released: Herb Waters, Donatello Brown, Josh Hawkins, Demetri Goodson, Quentin RollinsRollins played 139 snaps last season and is the remaining corner from the 2015 draft that saw Randall and Rollins picked in back-to-back rounds by the Packers. Looks like the APC staff is projecting that that experiment is over. Waters has speed to develop into something and Hawkins put in a lot of snaps last season, but they’re predicted to be on the outside looking in. Having two rookies at this position pushes a lot of players off the 53-man roster, but the cornerback position was in dire need of a revamp. Taking two swings at getting a starting-level corner from this past draft and a full Kevin King season is an upgrade from last year. It’ll be exciting to see what an infusion of new blood can do to impact the whole defense.
