Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for February 11, 2014

Jonathan Daniel

The Packers' newest coaches spoke to the media on Monday, and we have some of their comments in today's curds.

Welcome to Tuesday, everyone. On Monday, we heard some comments from Ron Zook and Sam Gash, two of the Packers' newest assistant coaches. The team is also continuing its quest to improve personnel through the draft and free agency, and we have one argument in today's curds that advocates being very cautious with any external free agent acquisitions.

Enjoy!
