Happy Tuesday, everyone. We had some technical issues on the site yesterday, which is why yesterday's Cheese Curds was both late and the site's only post. Our awesome support team got everything fixed and we'll be back with your usual 4-5 posts today. In today's Green Bay Packers news and links, Vic Ketchman sings the praises of Donta Hightower, while Donald Driver dances the Paso Doble.
A great piece on Akiem Hicks, who had to go take the road less traveled to Canada because of NCAA eligibility issues.

And even though teams get to conduct offseason workouts, no one is required to show up.
Much like other professional athletes on this show, Driver started looking very tense and mildly robotic, and he's starting to look more like a dancer as the weeks go on. Hard-hitting DWTS analysis!
In Ask Vic, Vic says that Donta Hightower is a beast and that he won't drop to 28, regardless of what your favorite website's player rankings say.
More from around SB Nation after the jump
Not because it's a bad idea, but because everyone in the top 15 or so wants to trade down.
Reggie McKenzie has his eyes on a couple of basketball players that might translate to tight end in the NFL like Jimmy Graham.
This looks like a move that pays Smith more this year, then less the following two. It makes sense for a team that is on the edge of competing with the big boys, but still a couple drafts/free agent signings away. They know they're not a Super Bowl team right now, so they're paying Smith now in order to have cap room to sign a some quality free agents in a year or two. Smart.
What it says. No Sean Payton this year.
