“We’ve got a fundraiser going where people can donate an amount of money for every score we have. I think it’ll be a great thing.”
And a reminder that Tebow’s predecessor isn’t done striving for the greater good.
The NFL announced the suspension in mid-March. The report did not identify the performance-enhancing substance involved in the violation.
Burfict will be allowed to participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games.
This will mark the third straight season the controversial linebacker has been suspended at the start of the year. He sat out the first three games of 2016 for repeated violations of player safety rules, including a jarring hit to the head of Steelers receiver Antonio Brown in the 2015 playoffs.
The NFL then suspended Burfict the first three games of 2017 for an illegal hit he made on a Chiefs player in a preseason game. He has also been fined and/or forfeited $2.9 million in salary during his career for violating NFL rules.
Below is a breakdown of the Packers’ schedule in 2018. Green Bay’s regular-season schedule, including dates and kickoff times, will be posted after it is made available by the NFL.
Toughest tests: Road games against the Seahawks and Patriots won’t be easy; Green Bay has lost the last three trips to Seattle, starting with the infamous “Fail Mary” game. It’s worth noting that Rodgers has never started a game at Gillette Stadium. The Packers also travel to the West Coast to face a beefed-up Rams team in what could be one of the most entraining games of the season.
Biggest breaks: The Packers avoid a trip to Atlanta, where the Falcons have scorched them three times in the last two seasons. The home schedule is very friendly. Keep in mind Green Bay finished 4-4 at home last season, and that included a 3-0 record with Rodgers.
