Former Green Bay Packers head coach and current Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman was interviewed for a column by Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe, and the topic of Brett Favre came up in conversation, specifically the relationship between Favre and the Packers. “I think time will pass and everything will be made right,” Sherman is quoted as saying. “Green Bay has meant too much to him as a player and as a person and he’s been too much for them.” Sherman would elaborate on his feelings also looked at retrospect at his own time in Green Bay saying he regrets he didn’t spend more time with his own family during that period in his life.
In a blog post at JSOnline, columnist Michael Hunt thinks Favre is finally trying to mend fences with the Packers.
The agent of free agent running back Ryan Grant acknowledged that the likelihood of his client signing with the Packers is basically nil. In an interview with Jeff Fedotin of the National Football Post, agent Alan Herman said, “How do I explain the Packers’ situation? I’m dumbfounded by that one. We’re not really thinking about Green Bay at this point.” Despite the lack of interest, Herman also expressed confidence that Grant will play for someone this year. Herman also says two teams have offered Grant a contract, but it’s hard to believe Grant is turning down deals no matter how little a team has offered.
Cornerback Tramon Williams was the focus of yet another offseason article published in the Green Bay Press-Gazette over the weekend, but in addition to talking about his injured shoulder, Williams also was positive about improvement he thinks the defense can make in 2012. “I was convinced when we finished the season, the day that we lost I was convinced,” Williams is quoted as saying. “Obviously, we know that the guys upstairs were going to get us some help, and they did that. We’re excited about the guys we brought in. To sit here and watch them practice every day, they open up eyes with something every day.” It’s good to the rookies being embraced by the veterans.
