Cheese Curds: Green Bay Packers News and Links for May 21, 2014

A Packers' rival gets to host the Super Bowl in a few years. Isn't that special.

It's all tight ends all the time lately, as far as news about the Green Bay Packers are concerned. No, we don't have any articles in today's Cheese Curds about Colt Lyerla, but we do have news about the two other rookie tight ends on the roster who will be obstacles to Lyerla's quest for a spot on the 53-man roster.

Oh, and Vikings fans can finally use the words "Minnesota", "win", and "Super Bowl" in the same sentence (even if it is only in reference to winning the right to host the game), so that's nice I guess.
