Payments are due for Green Bay Packers season-ticket holders on Friday. “The organization is encouraging fans to make payments through its online season ticket account management program with Ticketmaster,” according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Tickets increased in price from anywhere from $3 to $5 per game this upcoming season.
Newly signed Packers defensive end Tony Hargrove spoke to ESPN.com about coming to Green Bay. ”Hopefully I can be a guy that could add a bit of speed to the defensive line,” Hargrove told NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert, “and an extra dimension there. I want to be an explosive playmaker and get after the passer, at the right time. When it’s time to play the run, you play run with proper technique. But I want to get after it when we convert from run to pass.” Hargrove should be able to add some pass rush to the Packers, but he needs to be available. Possible suspension from the NFL could be hanging over his head for his role in “Bountygate.”
One of Hargrove’s former teammates was interviewed in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. ”He’s definitely a high-energy guy,” Bryant told reporter Tyler Dunne about Hargrove. “His motor is always running. He’s definitely going to be a guy you can count on to make a big play throughout the course of the game and throughout the course of the season. He has a high energy, a high motor. Put in the right situation, it’s definitely going to pay off.” The Packers hope so. Hargrove looks to be the type who will play defensive end in the base 3-4 and then slide inside to tackle in subpackages.
The Packers had a representative in attendance at Lamar’s pro day on Wednesday where wide receiver Marcus Jackson worked out. “Jackson’s agent, Brandon Baade, said several scouts told him they attended the Lamar pro day because they wanted to see Jackson,” writes Christoper Dabe of the Beaumont Enterprise, a local newspaper in Texas. Jackson has been invited to the Super Regional Combine in Detroit today where all 32 NFL teams will be represented.
