Corey Linsley expects to be snapping somewhere else next season

Divisional Round - Los Angeles Rams v Green Bay Packers

After the Packers lost to the Buccaneers in the NFC Championship Game, center Corey Linsley acknowledged the possibility that he’d played his final game for Green Bay.

During an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Linsley went even further. He went beyond saying that it is possible that he’ll sign elsewhere in free agency to saying that he expects to be playing for a different team in 2021.

“We’re not closing the door for anything,” Linsley said. “Obviously we’d never do that for any team, especially the Packers, but yeah it definitely feels weird. It looks like all signs are pointing towards snapping the ball somewhere else next year.”

Linsley said he is working out as usual, but is feeling “a little more anxiety” than in other offseasons because of the uncertainty about where where he’ll be next season. The 2014 fourth-round pick made his first All-Pro team in 2020 and that should help him find a strong market once free agency opens next month.

  1. This has Miami written all over it.

    Then the Dolphins can into the draft and do WHATEVER they want.

    If they pair him with Sewell at 3 and Jackson/Hunt/Kindley from last year…..oh boy.

    Ereck Flowers might be one and done in Miami. Solid player, definitely a starter if healthy.

  2. I’d hate to see him leave Green Bay. He’s a solid player and will benefit any team that signs him.

  3. First, never forget these guys are all hired guns. No, he won’t stay in GB because “it’s great there and players never want to leave”. And two, he will be complaining about Rodgers before the ink dries on the contract for his next team.

  4. They can move Jenkins over. Runyan looked like he can start as well.

    I hate to see Linsley leave, but there isn’t a team in this League that has done a better job identifying interior lineman.

  5. And two, he will be complaining about Rodgers before the ink dries on the contract for his next team.

    1 guy has done that on the way out.

    A bitter WR, who quickly found himself out of football.

    Yeah, make sure you post those quotes as soon as they’re made available. 🙄
    As with most claims made by the purple trolls, I won’t be holding my breath.

  7. I see all these “fans” on Twitter that are actually Vikings fans pretending to Packers fans, trying and failing to make actual Packers fans look bad. Yes, some have no life whatsoever.

    A lot of things are fluid this time of year in the NFL. Wait and see how it all plays out.

  8. Linsley is good, but with his bad back and age, I can see why the Pack may be a bit hesitant. And Free old boy, the Viking “pretenders” are simply copying what cheesers started — that comment practice certainly is not original or particularly clever, but try to remember the comment sword is double-edged.

  9. Corey is no dummy. He knows he’ll be the next to go because of Rodgers demanding a new contract.

    Are your other accounts just as mad about this?

  11. Cory Linsley had an excellent Packer run. He will be missed.

    Cheesy keeps singing his fresh one-note tune…. Kind of dopey, but he “hates” Aaron Rodgers so much I suspect that deep deep down he’s jealous of the fiance.

  12. The biggest difference among all NFCN teams and their expectations for success is still Aaron Rodgers. Nothing has changed. The best “same as it ever was” indication of that undeniable fact is the clockwork regulation and lack of imagination of whiny Viking trolls. They desperately can’t stop trying to make their limited-scope lives feel better, somehow, during an unbearably long off-season that began. for them in November. How’s that working out?

  13. I don’t understand all the “Rodgers wants a new contract” comments. Has anyone read an article with a quote from Rodgers that he wants a new contract or are we all just taking media reports as the gospel truth? Listen or watch his weekly talks with Pat McAfee for a good look at his honest self and not the post-game conference persona. If there are any direct quotes that 12 wanted a new contract or clarification or whatever, please share with the rest of the class.

  14. Rodgers has never made any demands, ever. He understands and respects the process. It’s wishful thinking for haters to think otherwise.

    I don’t understand all the “Rodgers wants a new contract” comments.
    It’s all just subterfuge to distract everyone from acknowledging that embarrassing 7-9 season the Vikings suffered last year.
    And the fact that 0-61 can be seen on the impending horizon. 😀

  16. If I were the fan of a team that spent a 1st Round pick on a Center who probably will never out perform or even match a 5th Round pick – I’d try not to call attention to it.

  17. Of course he does. The packers have $92mil of a $175mil cap tied up in 4 players (and $128mil in 8 players). They can’t afford to sign him, they’re $11mil over the cap. That’s why they spent draft capital preparing for who they were not going to be able to resign (a RB to replace Jones and Williams, a TE to replace Lewis and Tonyan, 3 linemen to replace Linsley, Taylor, and Wagner….). They need to cut Amos, Turner, Lowry, and MVS and trade out of the first round just to sign their draft picks. Unless, of course, they part ways with one of those 4 players tying up over half the cap….. you may have seen the last of Preston Smith.
