Given the not unreasonable hype the Packers’ defense is garnering this offseason, how would you expect their opening day opponent to try attacking them on the first drive? Smash-mouth runs up the gut? Play-action deep shot?
Seeing the piece on Tramon Williams got me thinking … What Packers were cut/traded and then later returned to the team? Oh yes, got Cobb too. Others?
In the last 25 years, the list also includes Antonio Freeman, Doug Pederson, Keith McKenzie, Craig Nall, Ahman Green, Charlie Peprah, Matt Flynn, James Jones and Davon House.
Top of the morning, II! Wondering how much “alone time” Aaron Rodgers is getting during practice with his new receiver corps. Is there more time built into drills for that group to get more accustomed to each other? Or is it standard operating procedure – the offensive rollout as always? Thanks for all you do: We Packer fans get more news and insight in early June, I’m sure, than some teams’ fans get during the season.
Practice was business as usual, just with Rodgers and other veterans we hadn’t seen yet participating. I did my best to summarize Rodgers’ thoughts on a lot of topics in my post-practice story.
Which stage of panic is appropriate for No. 13 not showing up to mandatory camp? Asking for an overly anxious friend.
Maybe Rodgers’ words from Tuesday will make you feel better: “Excited about Allen Lazard. He’s been our dirty work guy for most of his career here. Now he’s getting an opportunity to be a No. 1 receiver, so I’m not worried about him at all stepping into that role. I’ve talked to him a lot. I know how he takes care of his body and I know he’ll be ready when he’s here.”
With Allen Lazard a no-show for camp does it look like he will hold out for a long-term contract, and do you believe they will give him one?
I don’t believe this is a holdout situation of any kind. I’ll stand by what I said before. It would make little sense for the Packers to give Lazard a long-term deal right now…
