  4 years ago     62 Views     1 Comment  

The Packers may not own the league’s best offensive line but the versatility amongst the group will help them get by. Six of the ten-plus linemen are capable of playing more than one position effectively, most notably T.J. Lang and Evan Dietrich-Smith.

But week 17 will be different... (more…)
