Wed, 21 Mar 2001 02:03:40 -0800
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports because the Green Bay Packers didn't add many new faces during the off-season, the team is working with an advanced mini-camp format right now.

Wed, 28 Feb 2001 09:32:17 -0800
As a follow up to an ongoing story, the Press Gazette reports agent Hadley Engelhard who represents Packers RB Dorsey Levens suggested there's at least a 50 percent chance he and the team will agree on an incentive-laden deal that will keep the Packers from cutting Levens. The Packers have until 3 p.m. Thursday to cut close to $10 million from their payroll to get under the 2001 salary cap. As reported last night, a decision is expected today. OC Frank Winters' status is less clear and of the three players asked to take substantial pay cuts, he has taken the strongest public stance against accepting the reduction.
Mon, 26 Feb 2001 23:49:26 -0800
The Journal Sentinel reports as of Monday evening, the Packers were still awaiting word from RB Dorsey Levens, OC Frank Winters and OT Earl Dotson on whether they have accepted paycuts to avoid being let go. QB Brett Favre's new contract may be announced this Thursday. As previously reported, CB Tyrone Williams and DT Santana Dotson have been notified they may potentially need to restructure their deals. If Levens, Winters and Dotson take their paycuts, then Santana Dotson and Williams may be safe.
Sun, 25 Feb 2001 04:10:42 -0800
The Press Gazette reports agent Bus Cook representing Packers QB Brett Favre said talks on a new contract for Favre went well and that he might meet again with Packers negotiator Andrew Brandt this morning before heading home to Mississippi today.

Thu, 22 Feb 2001 08:19:51 -0800
The Green Bay Press Gazette reports Green Bay Packers RB Dorsey Levens is mulling over whether or not he wants to reduce his salary to $1 million for the upcoming year with the potential to earn more in incentives. It's possible that Levens could be cut today in a salary cap manuever, but it's not expected to happen. The team could be parting ways with Levens, LB Brian Williams, OT Earl Dotson and C Frank Winters as early as today. If all four were released, the team would open roughly $9 million under this year's salary cap.
Fri, 16 Feb 2001 01:17:17 -0800
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the Green Bay Packers have talked to CB Tyrone Williams about restructuring his contract to open some salary cap room.

Other than S Darren Sharper, the team has marked re-signing PK Ryan Longwell and RB Ahman Green as priorities, too.
Thu, 15 Feb 2001 20:55:47 -0800
The Journal Sentinel reports the Green Bay Packers have yet to inform OC Frank Winters of their plans for him for 2001. According to agent Tony Agnone chances that Winters would be willing to accept a reduction from his cap salary of $1.89 million in 2001 don't appear promising. Team negotiator Andrew Brandt has left telephone messages recently for Agnone but the two haven't been able to speak.
Sun, 11 Feb 2001 16:00:09 -0800
Tom Silverstein of the Sporting News reports the Green Bay Packers are expected to tender WR Corey Bradford the lowest restricted free agency offer, which means another team can sign him for only a fifth-round pick as compensation. The team faces a tough decision on OC Frank Winters and his 1.86 million cap hit. They are confident in backup Mike Flanagan and it appears they can't keep both. Silverstein speculates, despite some potential interest from Astroturf teams, RB Dorsey Levens would probably not consider teams who play on the surface. He's had nagging knee and ankle injuries and playing on turf would greatly reduce his durability. The team may attempt to entice Levens to stay with the Packers after a contract restructure by including incentives to compensate him if he becomes the lead back again.
Wed, 24 Jan 2001 22:36:45 -0800
The Journal Sentinel reports it looks almost certain the Green Bay Packers will not have the same starting offensive line in 2001 as they did in 2000. The team is reportedly $4 million to $5 million over the 2001 salary cap and they have said they probably won't re-sign OL Ross Verba, who is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on March 2. Earl Dotson's injured back and salary cap number leaves him as a question mark as well for 2001. OC Frank Winters could be a cap casualty as well, but he has stated he wants to be back in Green Bay next season. Youngsters Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher played well last season and should be able to step in again this season if any of the above players do leave.
Thu, 28 Dec 2000 14:38:58 -0800
The Green Bay Press Gazette reports the Green Bay Packers are ready and expecting an overhaul on the offensive line in 2001. It appears that LT Chad Clifton may be the only player from this year to return at the same position. The team still hopes OL Earl Dotson (back) is able to return while both LG Ross Verba and C Frank Winters may not return due to salary cap issues. Verba is a free agent, who the team would like to re-sign, but may not be able to afford him.

Thu, 17 Jun 1999 00:45:00 -0700

Currently, the team is planning on starting Ross Verba at LT, Raleigh McKenzie at LG, Frank Winters at Center, Marco Rivera at RG and Earl Dotson at RT. However, John Michaels, Joe Andruzzi and Mike Wahle all have other plans and would like to crack the starting lineup. "Nothing is etched in stone," according to offensive line coach Larry Beightol.
