The Packers have yet to make any huge trades for players during free agency, with the exception of trading Matt Flynn to Seahawks, but still have plenty of things going on to keep them busy.
This week it was said that Green Bay was one of the teams to possibly look at trading for Tim Tebow, which of course put them in the spotlight for a bit, but then he ended up being traded to the New York Jets. Of course, I’m somewhat biased because I’ve been a fan of Tebow since his Gator days, but I must say he pulls off the green and yellow pretty well if you ask me!
Not too bad right?!
But on to other news…
The construction of Lambeau Field is going very smoothy and running right on schedule. According to Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy:
“We’ve been really pleased. It’s going along very well.”
When talking about the new video board that will be placed in north endzone, Murphy said
“The first things that’s going to hit fans is the size of it. I think it’s really going to provide a dramatic improvement in the gameday experience for our fans.”
With the mild winter we’ve had this year, the plans to move forward with the expansion is right on schedule.
Also, Dancing With The Stars premiered it’s latest season last Monday with our very own Donald Driver! He and his partner, Peta Murgatroyd, did the cha cha, and while recieving a score of only 21, fans were thrilled at his performance, and actually booed his score thinking it would be higher.
So now, even though it’s the offseason, clearly we can see that the players and staff have a lot of great and fun things to going on to stay busy until the next season starts!
