Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for May 16, 2014

Micah Hyde at the Packers' 2013 rookie camp - Mike McGinnis

The Packers' rookie minicamp kicks off today.

Football season is here!

Well, kinda. Sorta. Not really. But still, the Packers now have a full roster and the team is taking the practice field for the first formal time today! Well, it's not the whole team, just the rookies.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that the Packers' rookie camp starts today and goes through the weekend, and the coaching staff will get its first look at its new charges - all 22 of them. In the meantime, enjoy today's curds as we get you ready for more news about the rookies yet to come later today.
