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

Peter Brouillet-US PRESSWIRE

The Packers' financials and their discussions with their old QB are at the forefront of today's curds.

There was quite a bit of news coming out of Green Bay on Thursday, as the team announced their financial numbers to the public. In addition, team President and CEO Mark Murphy addressed a number of topics with the media in a press conference.

Among the topics addressed were the two key contributors to the drama of the 2008 offseason. The one who's still with the team is expected to stay for a while, but the other one won't be honored for a little bit yet.

Also, let's all hope for a new birch tree to be planted by this time next year. You'll see what I mean shortly.
