Packers | Edgar Bennett takes over as receivers coach

Fri, 25 Feb 2011 21:34:55 -0800

The Green Bay Packers named running backs coach Edgar Bennett as their new receivers coach Friday, Feb. 25, reports Pete Dougherty, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Bennett was a running back for eight seasons in the NFL, and it's the only position he's coached in six seasons as an NFL assistant. However, he won over head coach Mike McCarthy with his preparation and attention to deal. "At the end of the day the guy jumped through the door to do the job," McCarthy said. Bennett replaces Jimmy Robinson, who left to become the assistant head coach-receivers coach with the Dallas Cowboys.

Packers | James Starks potential back of the future

Wed, 28 Jul 2010 14:14:46 -0700

The Green Bay Packers think rookie RB James Starks may have the athletic ability to force his way onto the field at times this year, reports Pete Dougherty, of The Green Bay Press-Gazette. Running backs coach Edgar Bennett said Starks is explosive, has a good change of direction and good hands coming out of the backfield. How he handles pass protection may go a long way into his playing time. The team is also looking at him as a possible long-term replacement for RB Ryan Grant, who has two years remaining on his contract.
