NFC North Roundup: Trubisky attracts praise in a week of uneven performances The score did not properly indicate the rout that was the Green Bay Packers’ 51-34 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in week two of the exhibition slate.Green Bay’s first-team offense looked to be in mid-season form as Aaron Rodgers led the group down a short field for a touchdown in his lone series of the game. In a game that featured an 82-yard touchdown reception from roster-hopeful Jake Kumerow Womens Aaron Ripkowski Jersey , the Packers’ defense also did its part, returning a pair of interceptions for scores. It was the best all-around performance from any NFC North team this past week.Elsewhere around the division, things proved to be not as positive or consistent. While Detroit and Minnesota fell short on the scoreboard, Chicago may have fallen short on a few notable bodies for extended time in its win over Denver. The Vikings also were affected by the injury bug while the Lions’ offense has yet to get rolling during the preseason. One player who did start rolling, however, is Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who delivered a scoring strike and some impressive touch passes against the Broncos despite some costly mistakes.

Each player is competing for a role behind the healthy Dalvin Cook in 2018. The former Bronco and Jaguar was recently released and could have been a good fit in Green Bay."Although the negotiation period for free agency does not start until noon Eastern today, the Green Bay Packers are in the news for an interesting rumor. The assumed needs for this team are pass rush off the edge and safety, but the team is apparently looking into defensive linemen for Mike Pettine’s unit as well.While interest has remained strong between the Packers and Muhammad Wilkerson about a reunion for 2019, the team may be looking elsewhere for help as well. According to Pro Football Talk, the Packers are one of two teams in the running to sign defensive lineman Malik Jackson, who was recently released by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Because Jackson was cut instead of having an expiring contract, he is free to negotiate and sign a deal before free agency officially begins.UPDATE: According to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, Jackson is signing with the Eagles. Adam Schefter reports that the deal is for three years and is worth $30 million total ($10M per year).Jackson started his career as a fifth-round draft pick of the Denver Broncos, and he provided an excellent interior pass rush there for four seasons. Once cracking the rotation in 2013, he recorded six Womens Dean Lowry Jersey , three, and five-and-a-half sacks in the succeeding three years, and he was a disruptive player as the Broncos won the Super Bowl following the 2015 season.That offseason, Jackson signed a huge contract with the Jaguars, getting six years and $85 million with $31.5 million guaranteed. However, he played just three years under that deal before being released last Friday. In those three seasons with Jacksonville, Jackson did not miss a game, and he recorded 18 sacks with four forced fumbles. He also made a Pro Bowl in 2017, when he had eight sacks.With Jackson suddenly on and now off the Packers’ radar, look for the team to continue their conversations with Muhammad Wilkerson about a return in 2019.
