The Packers take the field against the Rams in St. Louis on Saturday. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. It's the Packers' second pre-season game of 2013.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The departures of receiver Donald Driver and defensive back Charles Woodson in the offseason gave Ryan Pickett a new title with the Green Bay Packers.
While B.J. Raji gets the headlines when it comes to the Packers' defensive line, alongside him is the durable Pickett, who goes into his 13th NFL season as the oldest player on the roster at the age of 33.
With the Packers playing their second preseason game at St. Louis on Saturday night, Pickett returns to where his lengthy career started when he was one of the Rams' first-round draft picks in 2001. He signed with the Packers in 2006.
Pickett said Thursday he plans to keep playing past this season after his four-year contract with the Packers runs out.
