Packers and NFC North: Slow News Cycle

 - The Green Bay Packers news cycle is so slow right now that Greg Bedard is off Twitter for a week, and even Mike Florio is in the Middle of Nowhere

 - As if the Vikings didn't have enough quarterback rumors. From Daily Norseman comes the (literally) big rumor that they're a "strong suitor" for QB JaMarcus Russell. Does anyone really believe he can turn himself into a decent NFL QB?

 - Bengals RB Cedric Benson is looking for a new contract, but he didn't do himself any favors by getting charged with an assault that allegedly happened back in May. It's been just over 2 years since he ran himself out of Chicago on his party boat.

 - It's good that Lions team president Tom Lewand has been "in treatment for alcohol abuse for several months" but the video of his arrest on suspicion of drunk driving is an embarrassment. What should the team do with that guy? Sean at Pride of Detroit thinks they should give him a second chance.
