Packers’ Cole Madison May Not Return

Published

Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Cole Madison, a 2018 fifth-round draft pick, left the team following the conclusion of their offseason last June and did not return to the team due to a “personal matter.”

According to The Athletic’s Michael Cohen, Madison left due to the death of his college teammate Tyler Hilinski, and it could prevent him from returning to the team.

“The death of Tyler is in his head,” a source familiar with Madison’s situation told Cohen. “I don’t think he’s coming back. At least he’s not showing signs of it right now.”

Hilinski, a quarterback at Washington State who had been dealing with CTE, took his own life in January 2018.

“He’s still dealing with some of the things that he was dealing with at the beginning of the season last year,” Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said of Madison.

“Obviously we wish him the best and we’d love to, at some point, get him out there on the field to help us. But when that time is going to be, we’re not there yet.”

The saga of tight end Michael Roberts continues to take disappointing turns, as he has been waived by the Green Bay Packers only a few days after they claimed him on waivers, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

The Packers waived Roberts due to a failed physical, which also nixed his trade from the Detroit Lions to the New England Patriots earlier this month.

Green Bay picked up Roberts after he was reverted back to the Lions’ roster and ultimately waived.

Roberts, 25, has 13 career receptions for 146 yards.

Green Bay Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander has some big goals for the 2019 season, where he believes he is set to breakout.

“I just want to have a good year, for real. I see myself in the Pro Bowl. I see myself as an All-Pro,” Alexander said, according to the Packers’ official website.

Alexander also proclaimed that the defense would see a much different season then the saw in 2018.

“We didn’t get the ball out enough last year, but this year that’s going to change,” Alexander said. “Our front seven, we have great edge rushers. I’m not even going to say good. Those dudes are coming, so the ball is going to be out a lot faster.”

“I’ve got all the confidence in the world. Last year was a great starting point for me, but this year is going to be my dog year. I’m putting my stamp on that,” Alexander said.
