Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for May 19, 2014

Welcome to Monday, Packers fans. Mine's off to just an awesome start, so I'll leave today's curds here without much introduction. I will just say that I love the nickname that was given to the Packers' second-round pick, and I have a good feeling about this year's class of undrafted free agents.

Adams' nickname is Optimus Prime. As for how he got it, his old QB Derek Carr said this: "He couldn't be Megatron because that was taken by a special receiver. I won't say the name. I called him Optimus Prime because he reminds me a lot of that guy." Eat your heart out, Calvin Johnson.
