Happy Monday, ladies and gentlemen. We're now just over a week from the start of training camp. For me, this week is always the worst of the football season. It feels like football is close, but with camp a week off and the franchise tag signing deadline passing today, there won't actually be any football news at all until players start showing up at camp. We'll write a bunch this week anyway. Here's your daily dose of Green Bay Packers news and links.
