T.J. Lang Wants To Stay In Green Bay


This past season, the Green Bay Packers had one of the best pass protection groups in all of football, which lead to Aaron Rodgers having an MVP type season. As Green Bay looks at the future, it’s unclear if right guard T.J. Lang will be a part of it.

“That’s the first thing going through my mind after I hurt my foot again,” Lang said. “I’m just hoping it wasn’t the last time I get to put on that helmet. It’s tough, man. Obviously, I’ll take some time, take a couple days, to rest up and recover and see what happens. I think everybody in this locker room knows that this is where I want to be.”

Lang left the NFC Championship Game early due to an injury to his right foot.

“I think everybody in this locker room knows that this is where I want to play,” Lang said. “It’s been eight years now. I don’t want to go anywhere. I’ve been saying that since the beginning. I love this team, I love Green Bay, I love everything about being a Packer. I love representing the city and the team. I want to be back. It’s not up to me. This is where I want to be.”

It’ll be interesting to see how important general manager Ted Thompson measures the status of Lang moving forward.
