Packers add Letroy Guion

By Josh Alper

The Packers made a big splash in free agency by signing defensive end Julius Peppers after years of facing him twice a season with the Bears. On Monday, the Packers landed another defensive lineman with NFC North experience. It is not nearly quite as big a splash this time around. […]

Week 3 Preview: Vikings Vs Browns

Two division road contests have resulted in two division road losses. Hopefully the cure for what ails the Vikings are the Cleveland Browns, who visit Mall of America Field today at noon.
